If you’ve experienced past Super Bowl media day coverage, I’m not sure there’s much else to say. If you haven’t, well, stay tuned over the next four-plus hours.
I think it must now be official. It’s the Brit Bowl.
Unless you’re there, Media Day is difficult to comprehend. It’s basically an event within the event, the three hours of Super Bowl week where covering the “news” becomes the news.
One of the highlights from the Steelers’ session at media include LB Keyaron Fox teaching a female Telemundo reporter dressed in a tight light-blue jersey, knee pads and high heels how to be a linebacker. “I was expecting a lot more serious questions,” Fox said. “But it’s all good. I’m just having fun with it.”
As Media Day came to a close, the players were still dancing. Following their team picture on the field, a group of Steelers got together at midfield to continue what took place moments earlier in the stands. NFL Network’s Scott Hanson managed to coax CB Bryant McFadden into a response to Cardinals CB Dominique Rodgers Cromartie’s dance challenge. WR Nate Washington and OT Marvel Smith led a large group of Steelers who surrounded McFadden up in the stands, providing beats while McFadden provided the dance moves.
They call this Media Day, but in some ways, it’s all backwards. In many cases, it’s just journalists interviewing journalists. The players even arm themselves with cameras, often turning them on reporters. Giants LB Antonio Pierce is one player acting as a journalist and giving interviews at the same time.
President Barack Obama ran on a platform of change, but the sense the Cardinals players have is that Obama is pulling for the Steelers, winners of five previous Super Bowls, to be the first professional team he greets in the White House as champions.
Media Day is about to start, which also means this is a test run for stadium operations at Raymond James Stadium, site of Sunday’s Super Bowl.
