Dolphins owner Fergie dodges tough questions

DALLAS — Have you ever been to one of those Super Bowl parties where the guests seem to be more interested in the commercials than the actual football game? Because the Black Eyed Peas press conference on Thursday at the media center was very similar to that.

How else can you explain how a room full of people could have access to the Miami Dolphins owner — Fergie is a minority owner of the team — and nobody wants to ask about the shake up on the Dolphins offensive coaching staff or the future of QB Chad Henne?

In fact, a reporter from Denmark said that he didn’t even care about football, and that he only cared about Fergie.

What’s wrong with you people? And why wasn’t I given the microphone?

Instead, Fergie was asked about her set list, what time of the day she feels most amorous, and if there will be any chance of a wardrobe malfunction — the last question asked much to the consternation of NFL PR stalwart Brian McCarthy.

But Fergie did admit that she wanted to show a “little sex appeal” during the performance but was very particular about her wardrobe, promising that there will not be any malfunctions.

Which may have disappointed our friend from Denmark.

One intrepid reporter did ask if Usher and Slash were going to be on hand for the Super Bowl performance (this is what they are digging for?), but McCarthy delivered the line of the day when he announced that former Steelers QB Kordell Stewart will not be performing during the halftime show.

Glad he cleared that up.
