The hype and circumstance has begun as Super Bowl XLVI media day kicked off this week with media reps from all over the world descending on Lucas Oil Stadium to get an inside look at the AFC champion NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS and their opponents, the NFC champion NEW YORK GIANTS.
Every question under the sun gets asked at SB media day and anything goes as well…like reporters dressing up as superheroes, pop singer Ciara showing up to take pics with the players and Patriots wideout (and former Rutgers player) Tiquan Underwood showing off his retro 80′s box haircut…
Rows (LtoR): Tom Brady offers up a confident SB smile; Ahmad Bradshaw wears 3-D-like designer frames…popcorn must be poppin’! Ron Gronkowski fields questions about his injured ankle; Victor Cruz displays his Super Bowl sombrero…Cruz es una Giant gigante! Big man Vince Wilfork looks to do some big things Sunday; Hakeem Nicks veers off to the left during Q&A; Underwood gets “boxed” in by media; Antrel Rolle has that “Man, are you serious?” look; Patrick Chung enjoys his 10 minutes of fame in Boston minutemen cap; the Giant receiving corps of Mario Manningham, Nicks and Cruz all peaced out for media day; Devin McCourty does the minutemen thing for a minute; Devin Thomas answers a reporter’s question. Think Thomas is thrilled he’s no longer a Redskin? Affirmative!!
Can you say circus-like atmosphere?? Easy to get caught up in this stuff and lose sight that there’s an NFL championship at stake and a date with destiny for either the Giants or the Patriots on Sunday.
Somehow I doubt that Tom Coughlin or Bill Belichick will let that happen though.
