Video Transcript

My name is Anthony Tolenko, but I go by Tony, and I am the Special Agent bomb technician team leader for FBI Las Vegas. We started planning for the game pretty much in February of last year. As far as actual work, though, we're starting the Saturday before the game.

And we start at 8 p.m. and we will be securing all the areas, doing explosive sweeps, K-9 sweeps for any any possible hazards with the local bomb squad. We'll be partnered up with them doing all those sweeps, which can take anywhere from a few hours to a day. And then once those sweeps are complete, we lock down the facilities and we are on stage from Saturday night through the Super Bowl to Monday, the day after. And we'll be at the team hotels.

The NFL experience at Mandalay Bay NFL Honors, which is that resort world in Las Vegas. And then a few other spots. I don't want to do anything else. People ask me all the time about doing other things.

This is the pinnacle of my professional career as far as I'm concerned. I'm not going anywhere.
