Cardinals' Edgerrin James literally enjoying ride of his life

Edgerrin James figured he needed some wheels for Super Bowl week to cruise around Tampa. Most people would go out and rent a car.

Not Edge.

The Arizona Cardinals running back special-ordered a brand new Lamborghini, silver exterior with crushed red velvet interior, the color of his Cardinals.

"My first time seeing it was the day it got here, so I had to kinda learn how to drive it and everything on the fly," James said. "I bought it out of Miami and had it shipped up here. The day we had off last week, Thursday, we went by the Lamborghini store and scoped it out."

But in preparation for the Super Bowl, you wouldn't think the Edge had much time to be tooling around, taking in the sights.

"I drive it after practice and whenever we get some free time," he said.

So, Edge, why the Lamborghini?

"Because it's a special car. It's something no one has," James said. "It's fast and it's one of those cars that you don't drive all the time. I don't like to really drive that much so it's fitting; it's perfect for someone like me.

"You don't have to drive it all the time, you know ... it's one of those things where less is more."

And why this week?

"Why not?" James said. "Because it's the Super Bowl and this is a fun week. Why not have it?"
