NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport hungry for Las Vegas reservations

NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport is known for breaking stories around the league.

On Wednesday, just before Las Vegas was awarded the 2024 Super Bowl, he also sounded as if he could be a member of the city’s Chamber of Commerce.

He boldly promoted dining at Lotus of Siam on the NFL Network broadcast and even tweeted about it.

On the broadcast, Rapoport called it “probably the best restaurant in the country. Will we be able to get reservations there?”

One of his colleagues immediately chided Rapoport for trying to score reservations more than two years out.
