I don't think that I've ever had the pleasure of watching Media Day live before in my life. You always hear a collection of the crazyiness later in the day, but watching it live is draining my soul. Highlights so far.
1. Sal Pal will not play your silly games Tonight Show and Kelli Pickler (Via MDS at Fanhouse)
I found it fairly amusing when she (Pickler) approached ESPN's Sal Paolantonio, who looked like he was about as interested in talking to her as he was in getting a root canal. Paolantonio was one of the few members of the media who treated media day as though it was an opportunity to do some actual work, and he refused to talk to Pickler when she tried to ask him about having media credentials. Instead, Paolantonio pointed to Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Bob Ford and said, "Bob will play along." He did.2. The Crazy Spanish lady who asked Tom Brady to marry her (Via NJ.com)
Ines Gomez Mont, a reporter for TV Azteca, came to Media Day at University of Phoenix Stadium intent on asking one question: Will you marry me, Tom Brady?3. Plaxico Burress' Glasses....
Sporting a cropped wedding dress and veil, she shouted her proposal from a mob of reporters. Brady's response? "What's your name?" (Video coming shortly)
4. Deion being on-air and letting others jump in front of him to ask Brandon Jacobs questions.
5. Michael Strahan singing Alicia Keys.
6. Rich Eisen calling Jeff Feagles an "OG"
7. Plax busting on New England's.....well as he called it...."Pep Rally".
"I didn't know they had pep rallies in Professional Sports. I thought I left that in High School."- PB (Comment of the day)
(I'll update as things move along....the Giants are on the field now and it seems like most of the Media members have left the building after the Pats were through)
