INDIANAPOLIS — Duzz geebts noor here Puls 4.
No, I didn’t just take my hand and drag it across the keyboard. Those were the words scrawled on a notebook by a German media host, who said it translated to “Only can be seen on Channel 4.”
It’s a message that Giants backup DT Dwayne Hendricks was asked to say on camera during the team’s Media Day availability. It took Hendricks a few takes, but he eventually nailed it.
“It basically shows that the NFL isn’t just a U.S. thing,” he said. “It’s spread into other countries, even Germany. Just knowing that it’s not going to be a statewide or countrywide, but worldwide event provides more incentive.”
German TV reporters are fun, but no one brings the party like the Spanish-speaking media. One news team was equipped with a boom box and a 6-foot pole with a disco ball attached on a string. The team was going up to players asking them to do their best Victor Cruz-inspired salsa dance.
We saw Giants LB Jacquian Williams reluctantly humor them. Coach Tom Coughlin said he wouldn’t salsa, but he did drop to his stomach and destroy “The Worm.”
OK, Coughlin really didn’t do that, but you can’t count anything out on Media Day.
