Media Day Blogasm: Lunch break

Lunch is being served upstairs to the media. I'm not going. I'm working hard for you down here.

A few observations:

My ass hurts from sitting on the floor.

Warren Sapp looks like he's losing massive amounts of weight but he still has a big mouth.

Kurt Warner talks a great deal about God. That's fine but please stop telling me how much God cares about a football game.

And for those athletes who constantly speak about how religious they are remember this paraphrased quote from the Bible: it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.

Just sayin'.

Sermon over.

The number of media attending this day is noticeably down from past years.

Two G's likes wearing T-shirts. I think he believes they show off his guns. Or something like that.

Where the hell is my man Prisco?

Media Day Blogasm: Giants are in Town

<p> </p>

<p>Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce is here. Insert your own gun joke here.</p>

<p>By the way, if one more Giants player gets shot, they can start an All-9mm team.</p>

<p>Ross the Intern from Jay Leno was a one-note train wreck. He'd walk up to a player and say, "Well, I like huddles."</p>

<p>Ross, we get it, you're gay.</p>

<p>Speaking of gay, Doyel is running across the hallway here for some reason. Has a little bounce in his step.</p>

<p>Cardinals media day is over and I have to say: it was one of the more boring I've ever covered.</p>

<p>Which actually bodes well for the Cardinals.</p>

Media Day Blogasm: Afro Samauri

Most awkward moment of the morning so far. An older, really odd radio guy (I know that really narrows it down) gets several inches from the face of Mike Gandy from the Cardinals. He begins saying some weird ass bull---- to Gandy and Gandy has this look on his face that says: get me out of here.

The weird guy then calls Gandy "Afro Samurai." And Gandy has no clue what that means. He laughs awkwardly. If I'm not mistaken, Afro Samurai was a Japanese cartoon being re-made into some sort of movie.

Marshall Faulk looks like Flip Wilson.

Ben Graham, the Arizona punter, has his own booth which is unreal. He's the first Austrailian to play in a Super Bowl but who cares. He talked about how one day rugby players would invade the NFL in larger numbers. And I'm Jack Bauer.

Guy in the red dress was told to move aside by security because he was blocking a stairwell. As he moved, one of his fake breasts almost fell out of his red dress.

Someone, please help me.

And Doyel is still trying to ask him out.

Media Day Blogasm: Card Glaring at Girl's Butt

 

A group of Cardinals players continually point to a woman wearing tight jeans. Focus fellas. Or, at least, be less obvious. Jeez.

There are two movie stars working media day for VH1. One of them looks like the guy who played the high school quarterback from the movie "Jerry Maguire."

Kurt Warner just said: "I love Jesus." No editorial comment on that.

So far, the only excitement from media day is the guy in the red dress.

Media Day Blogasm: Guy in Dress

 

Before I head in...there's a man 10 feet from me, putting on a red dress, with fake breasts.

I'm serious.

He's got lipstick on, too.

And heels.

Now he's putting on the wig. A white wig. The dress is tight.

I'm not making this up. You'll hear about this guy later I'm sure.

Doyel's asking him out.

Media Day Blogasm: Madness Begins

 

There's a guy, a reporter, actually freaking stretching his calves before this begins. He thinks he's a player. This is going to be a long morning.

Oh, wait, we're going in! The lines are forming to the field. The way reporters ran to the entrances you'd think they were giving away free food. Or lap dances.

By the way, Doyel got a haircut. His head looks like a peach with razor burns.

Media Day Blogasm

 

TAMPA -- Media Day at the Super Bowl is about to begin. Two G's Doyel and I will be blogging about the sick, the twisted and the weird...and that's just Doyel. The stadium is packed with reporters and players and coaches are now making their way towards the field. I'm still trying to find Prisco. I'm sure he's at the food table.

Another Giant shot...unreal

What the hell is happening with Giants wide receivers getting shot?

First, Plaxico Burress shot himself. Now, Giants receiver Taye Biddle was reportedly shot while visiting family in Alabama. Like Burress, Biddle was shot in the leg.

Ironically, when Burress introduced his own leg to a high caliber bullet, Biddle was activated from practice squad. So ostensibly he replaced Burress. Then Biddle got shot.

It seems Biddle is fine and that's a good thing. His injury also differs from Burress in that Burress caused his own. So I'm not drawing an exact parallel between the two and -- again -- I'm glad Biddle is OK.

But this is truly odd. At the rate New York is losing wide recievers to gunshot wounds, the Giants will be asking Cris Carter to come out retirement by the fall.

Am I the only one who thinks two wide receivers on the same team getting shot just months apart is really, really odd?
