The blimp will tantalize Tampa and Orlando NFL fans this week with live video overhead on Thursday and Saturday, respectively.Undeterred, NFL Network PR guy Seth Palansky said there is “zero chance” the NFL will clear the December 29 Patriots-Giants game on other broadcast outlets.

We’re just hoping no one calls in an air strike if the blimp is planning a maiden voyage over The Bean on Dec. 29.
