Must say, I'm not particularly sad about being home, far from Super Bowl week, considering what's going to happen there tomorrow. The forecasts of steady rain will move Media Day inside a concourse at Sun Life Stadium.
Now, you have to realize, Media Day is a zoo to start with. The entire legitimate press contingent shows up, along with every loony bird from MTV and the like. In all, it's not unusual to have between 2,000 and 3,000 people floating around the outside of the field and stands on a sunny day.
Now that it's being moved indoors, to a confined area, there's going to be a lot less elbow room. I'm probably better off away from it all, since I tend not to suffer fools lightly, especially in tight quarters. And you see plenty of foofs the Tuesday before the Super Bowl.
I feel bad for all my buddies down there. Hope they weather the discomfort.
