Post Superbowl XLVI
A couple days after hanging out in Indianapolis, Indiana for the Superbowl XLVI….
There are a few things I’ve learned…
◆ lots of information is collected and shared during this period of time. I’ve heard upwards of 2,000 pages of pre-game information alone.
◆ and this doesn’t include the State of the NFL by commissioner Roger Goodell. His report was 10 pages long.
◆ I also found out that over 30,000 pictures are taken during the Superbowl game alone of which maybe 100 of those make it to editors desk.
◆ On Media Day… here are some highlights of the dumbess question asked…
-Logan Mankins, a guard for the Patriots, was asked Tuesday what the best part of being an offensive lineman is, he replied, ‘‘Blocking’’?
-Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka, when asked Wednesday if getting to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was important, replied: ‘‘If you get to the quarterback enough, if you hit him hard enough, it’s going to make him less effective’’?
-and lastly, Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes began his career? Well, in high school, his physical-education teacher said the football team needed a kicker. As Tynes relates it, ‘‘He said, ‘Lawrence, can you come out here and kick?’ I said, ‘Certainly.’ ’’
