Media Day Highlights: Overrated And Boring As Hell

Tuesday, January 29, 2008

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
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?

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)
3. Plaxico Burress' Glasses....

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)

Well, of course the media left -- the Patriots are the only team playing. Or at least the impression I've gotten from watching CBS and ESPN.

Off-topic: Nice touch adding the security. This will cut down on the number of people saying hateful things on the site to everyone except that one guy -- the way it should be. :)

This is why people hate and don't trust the media.

I really enjoyed it when Rich Eisen kept trying to get Antonio Pierce's attention but he wouldn't respond.

Plax is right, who the hell has a pep rally for a pro team??? But when you consider that most Patriot fans didn't go to high school, it makes much more sense.

Shame on you, Plax, for picking on retards.

At least that chick in the wedding dress wasn't Sean Young.

Wouldn't she need a tuxedo, as well as a penis, for Tom to want to marry her?

I think you need a standing picture of Plaxico to get the full effect of those shades.

@ Wags: Finkel is Einhorn!
