1/27: Super Bowl Media Day



If you've ever wanted to watch several thousand reporters and other media types interview NFL players and coaches for a couple of hours, the NFL has your ticket. The league will offer 7,000 fans the chance to buy tickets to Super Bowl Media Day. The NFL started allowing fans this opportunity a few years ago and apparently it's been well-received. A Super Bowl media day is unlike most interview sessions. In fact, it can be downright bizarre. Along with reporters, photographers and videographers from mainstream newspapers, TV stations and digital sites trying to do serious work, there are also usually a handful (or more) of "celebrity" media types looking to make their own splash.
