Super Bowl Media Day Free for All

 
Posted January 28th, 2014 @ 9:47am by KFBK News

 

Normally media day at the Super Bowl is held at the stadium in which the game will be played. Not this year.

Because of the cold they have moved today's event to the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J, which is the home of the NHL Devils.

This is the event in which legitimate reporters mix with all sorts of bloggers and internet reporters to talk to coaches and players about the upcoming game. 

AFC Champion Denver was first up with the whole thing taking up the entire morning.

Peyton Manning was not interested in talking about where his career stands in football history.

Not right now, anyway. Not when he's still playing. And certainly not less than a week from playing in the Super Bowl for the Denver Broncos.

As collected and measured as he is while standing in a pocket, Manning coasted through the circus that is Media Day, opining on his family's favorite beer, politely evading silly questions about reality TV, and avoiding any wild pronouncements.

The word "legacy" popped up repeatedly as the 37-year-old Manning, a four-time NFL MVP who broke records by throwing for 55 touchdowns and 5,477 yards this season, sat through his hour-long session Tuesday.

Not surprisingly, Manning declined to take the bait.

There are plenty of Seattle Seahawks fans attending media day. John Chen led a group of people who flew in from Seattle for the big game.

Fans paid $28 to $50 for a ticket to attend media day. Most other fans say they are not going to the Super Bowl because it is too expensive and cold but today is affordable and a great experience.
