Super Bowl 47 Media Day: Favorite Moments

A week or so ago, I tried explaining to a friend how my passion for sports is about the stories just as much as the game.  Yes, I love football, baseball, basketball (college), and soccer, but I also need to feel invested in the players and coaches.  All great stories tug at even the coldest of hearts, or make you laugh (even better when you get both).

Cue: Super Bowl Media Day

Which "reporter" will be in the most ridiculous costume?

Who will make the younger Coach Harbaugh laugh first?

Over/Under on the time it takes Ray Lewis to fake cry?

These are the bets Vegas should be taking!

The following are my favorite moments of the day:

  • I think every player was asked if they've ever been "Catfished." All answered no, of course (who would be that gullible).
  • Joe Staley coming through with the funny, calling Kap "awful," saying his Pegasus would be named "Bartholomew" and one of my favorite quotes, "I'm so close to being cool." I feel ya guy. Staley has a video segment on called the Joe Show. You should watch. I love him.
  • Harbaugh's best quotes:
    • "The best way to tell my brother apart is I'm taller." 
    • "I don't have a tweeter or anything."
  • Willis Words of Wisdom: "When you talk about yourself you're belittling the contributions of others." 
  • Randy Moss, in a Niners uniform, saying, with the straightest face, that he thinks he's the greatest receiver of all time. Sorry buddy, love the confidence and I'm glad you're on our team and all, but not even close to competing with #80 on that one.
  • Brian Jennings conducting a yoga lesson with the media
  • Suggs seems to be the Ravens answer to Staley's humor, can we get them to do an interview together?
  • Ray Rice's motiviational song is "Shine Bright Like a Diamond." "Don't judge me," he says
  • And this happened:

My tweet made it on ESPN's Sport Center Media Day Special! Now if I can just find a way to see it for myself, the day will be complete! Anyone out there who can help me with this?


Side note: I love how much respect the two teams are showing each other, I only hope the fans on both sides follow suit!


  1. I've been a Niners fan since the 80s. I am SO excited for Sunday!

    I wouldn't be sad if Ray Lewis got injured and couldn't play. Not because he's a Raven, but because I can't stand him.

  2. I was thinking of you as this weekend rolled around. I can't believe the season is over. Tear :(.

    I love the Harbaugh quotes and that you think Ray Lewis fake cries (I do too). This game should be good!
