ABLE BODIED SEAMAN
SAN JOSE---What happens when you
put Peyton Manning, Miss Universe, an
orange-and-blue leprechaun and 200 TV
cameras into the same room?
Answer: Super Bowl Opening Night. The
NFL took a good idea gone surreal---what
used to be known as "Media Day"---gave
it a new name, added a live cover band and
moved the whole thing to prime time Mon-
day to kick off Super Bowl week between
the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers.
This new and amped-up interview-fest
came complete with a guy walking around
inside an inflatable football and a newly
choreographed players introduction that
involved all 60 players from each team
walking out onto a four-story-high cat-
"I had no idea that was a bridge we were
standing on," said Manning, getting ready
for his fourth Super Bowl. And yet, the
more things change, the more they stay
the same. "Will you kiss my wife?" one
questioner shouted to Panthers QB Cam
Newton, who answered his hour s worth
of questions with a sports-drink-themed
towel wrapped around his head. "I don t
think I can do that," Newton said. Suffice
to say, Manning and Newton---one a five-
time MVP, the other a strong favorite to
win his first later this week---couldn t have
seen a lot of this coming, no matter how
hard they prepared. Who would play you
in a movie? "Maybe a young Robert Red-
ford," Manning said.
Another reporter---or make that, person
with a credential---asked Manning to look
into the camera and wish a Happy Chinese
New Year to all his friends in that part of
At one point, a reporter from a Span-
ish-language station cranked up some bass-
heavy music and pleaded with Newton to
dance. He passed. "Got to be feeling it," he
All of this thoughtfully brought to prime
time by the NFL for the first time in the
50-year history of the Super Bowl. For
decades, Media Day was a Tuesday-at-
noonish affair---scheduled so as not to inter-
rupt the teams schedules and to give writers
the rest of the week to craft the stories.
But this year, the NFL moved it to Monday
night, where minor details like dress code,
off-color banter and eight-year-olds asking
football players questions after bedtime
barely raise an eyebrow. (AP)
