Super Bowl circus takes center stage
January 28th, 2014 (AP) – Internet star Lil Terrio danced with cheerleaders, an Austrian man dressed as Mozart, another guy wore a Waldo costume and Nickelodeon’s Pick Boy was in the house.
Welcome to Media Day, the annual Super Bowl circus.
It seems fitting this event was held at a hockey rink, of all places, because there’s nothing ordinary about it. Thousands of journalists, pseudo-journalists and other credentialed “media” from all over the world gathered at the home of the NHL’s New Jersey Devils on Tuesday to meet the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks.
Strange questions were the norm instead of football ones. A man asked Seahawks center Max Unger if he could touch his long, scruffy beard. He said yes. A woman asked Seahawks defensive lineman Brandon Mebane for a kiss. He said no.
