It’s Tuesday of Super Bowl week, which means that it’s time for Media Day, a three-hour clusterfudge of humanity, which will be amplified by the addition of a nine-foot lid.
Yes, Monday’s rain has forced the session indoors.
I went to the thing last year in Tampa, and I have fonder memories of my November 2008 endoscopy. This year, I “inadvertently” scheduled a 40-minute radio spot with Tim Brando of Sporting News Radio for 11:00 a.m. ET, which means that I had to send Rosenthal to cover the thing.
The action is getting started right now on NFL Network, which is available on Sprint phones equipped with NFL Mobile Live. Also, NFL.com will stream video from each of the 12 podiums set up in the Club Level of Sun Life Stadium.
The Colts will meet the media from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. ET, and the Saints arrive from noon to 1:00 p.m. ET.
And as Rich Eisen of NFLN just pointed out, Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney will spend 60 solid minutes talking about his ankle injury.
To provide some variety, I’ve instructed Rosenthal to ask Peyton Manning is it’s true that he “sits when he pees.” (Rosenthal’s youthful appearance allows him to get away with that kind of thing, sort of like this guy.)
