NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The book and hit movie, "The Blind Side" can trace its roots to New Orleans. Fittingly, Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman Michael Oher will play in his first Super Bowl there.

New Orleans is where Oher's adoptive father, Sean Tuohy, grew up and went to high school with 'Blind Side' author Michael Lewis.

The movie, which depicted the Tuohys' experiences as Oher's adoptive family, starred actress Sandra Bullock, who owns a home in New Orleans.

For Sean Tuohy and wife Leigh Anne, Super Bowl week provides an additional platform for their foundation's mission to help more kids.

It also gives the Tuohys a chance to catch up with Bullock, who played Leigh Anne in the movie and with whom they'll attend the game. Leigh Anne Tuohy says the actress remains a friend and helps with their charitable work.
