Playing the Field at Invesco

August 28, 2008 3:48 PM

At Invesco Field, the names on one balcony may be football players', but the field tonight is politics, as Democrats get ready for speeches from Al Gore and then Sen. Barack Obama, accepting his party's nomination for president.

The networks have made the switch to Invesco from the nearby Pepsi Center. In temporary booths roughly 20 feet apart tonight sit NBC's Brian Williams, CBS' Katie Couric and ABC's Charles Gibson, along with anchors from Fox and CNN.

But with about three hours to go before the top speakers begin, Invesco Field is still a long way from full.
