Stepping away from Super Bowl for speedway party

A trip to Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a dream come true for any typical Southerner who grew up in racing-crazed North Carolina. At least that’s the logic I assumed my bosses used when they sent me off to the Super Bowl media party Tuesday night.

Giants’ Rolle doesn’t back down from talk

Antrel Rolle is no stranger to speaking his mind. He’s also no stranger to being confident. Often times for Rolle, that has created a volatile mix.

Summing up the wildness that is Media Day

Media Day has come and gone but not without leaving a ton of great memories in its wake.

Warren reflects on what could have been in Cleveland

Gerard Warren isn’t exactly nostalgic for his early days with the Browns. The 33-year-old Pats defensive tackle is about to play in his first Super Bowl, and was quick to detail the differences between this experience and the four up-and-down seasons he spent in Cleveland.

Touching the magical world of Vic ‘The Brick’ Jacobs

I encounter Vic “The Brick” Jacobs mid-interview with Giants TE Travis Beckum.

Jacobs wants to run off, not walk off, a winner

Giants RB Brandon Jacobs has fantasized about one specific ending to one of his games. Now he’d love nothing more than his dream to come true during the final seconds of Sunday’s Super Bowl.

How Big Ben, not Eli, could have been the Giants’ QB

Seated at the most crowded podium during Tuesday’s Media Day, Giants QB Eli Manning fielded questions about older brother Peyton‘s health and playing in his second Super Bowl. But what if Manning never was traded to the Giants on the day the Chargers drafted him No. 1 overall in 2004?

Lessons learned from blind father propel Pierre-Paul to stardom

For the first time in his life, Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul will have his whole family on hand for a football game when he plays in his first Super Bowl on Sunday. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean his father will be able to see it.

Herzlich more than happy to tweet message of survival, hope

Mark Herzlich has yet to play the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI, but the Giants’ rookie linebacker won the biggest battle of his life when he overcame Ewing’s sarcoma, a type of bone cancer.

Super Bowl week has pulled in characters from all corners.

Eli wants to see Peyton stay a Colt, much to Indy’s liking

If there’s anyone outside of the Colts and their fans who want to see Peyton Manning return to the field, it just might be someone who grew up competing against him.

Giants players roll with the foreign wacky

Giants players at Media Day have to be ready for anything, especially reporters who speak another language and have strange requests.

Does winning in Peyton’s building matter to Eli?

One of the cool things about having fans involved in Media Day is the life they breath into the stadium. But I have to admit, the random cheers emanating from the crowd at random points of the day is a little disconcerting.
