"Inside Edition" reported on Jan. 28 that Gabby Douglas will be its special correspondent for NFL Super Bowl XLVIII.

Megan Alexander of "Inside Edition" was seen giving Douglas tips about how to succeed with her reporting.

Douglas' first day started when she and Alexander picked up their credentials at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey where security was tight. Douglas was seen being patted down.

Their next stop was Media Day at MetLife Stadium where America’s big game will be played on Sunday, Feb. 2.

One couldn't help from seeing Douglas' excitement as as walked out onto the field for the first time. She was seen with the NFL cheerleaders where she did a flip. Then she was seen interviewing Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. She was thrilled that she was getting her first interview, and even more thrilled that it was with Manning.

On the field Douglas' petite size actually came in handy as she squeezed right in front to get the Manning interview. The two spoke athlete to athlete.

She said to Manning, "I was just wondering, I just know what it takes to compete on the high stage, I just want to know, how are you feeling? Are you nervous? Are you excited?"

Manning said, "It is similar to you, you are part of a team being over here. Obviously, you have your individual position, individual job that you have to do, just like you did at the Olympics, but you are still part of the group. It is nice to know you are going to have people that are going to help you out and support you."

While she was at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, the 18-year-old Olympic gold medal winner was stopped several times by fans who wanted an interview with her or a photo with her.

It is amazing that while Douglas will be working as a special Super Bowl correspondent on Sunday for "Inside Edition," Lifetime will be airing "The Gabby Douglas Story" on the same day.
