MIAMI — There’s so much going on in such a short period of time here at these Media Day sessions, here is a glimpse of the Colts’ morning session:
- Long snapper Justin Snow was a good sport to face off against guard Jamie Thomas at Entertainment Tonight‘s Super Bowl Idol station. I wish I could describe the look on Snow’s face when he was told that there was a problem with Bon Jovi’s “It’s my life” track and that he’d be forced to sing something by Miley Cyrus. Give credit to Snow, though. He can hit the high notes (kind of). But he ultimately lost out to Thomas’ performance of Beyonce‘s “Single Ladies.”
- Pierre Garcon was wearing the Haitian flag as a bandanna. I have a feeling we’re going to be seeing a lot more of that from Garcon all week.
- Austin Collie must be a smart guy. It’s well documented that he spent two years in Argentina on an Mormon mission. Collie, who didn’t have a choice as to where he was sent on his mission, didn’t know a word of Spanish when he got there. Five years later, he was bouncing back and forth between English and fluent Spanish while speaking with local reporters and some of the folks from TV Azteca.
- Linebackers Freddy Keiaho and Cody Glenn interviewing DE Robert Mathis up on his podium. Keiaho was making the case that Mathis is the best in the business at his position and should be paid like Peyton Manning. Mathis’ response: “Can you say that again?”
- Reggie Wayne said playing against his hometown Saints makes this Super Bowl experience somewhat bittersweet. Not to mention the lack of sunshine early on in the week. “I came here expecting 85 and sunshine,” he said. “I got my car cleaned and now it’s back dirty.” Wayne said his phone has remained off since the AFC Championship Game ended so as to avoid the myriad of ticket requests. “I’ve got the people that know they’re going to be going to the game and I’ve got the people that know they’re going to be watching the game.”
