Super Bowl Media Week is well underway, and lucky for us we didn’t have to listen to a whole lot of DeflateGate questions during today’s Super Bowl Media sessions with Patriots and Seahawks players and coaches. There were plenty of memorable moments in today’s sessions:
Lynch’s media session lasted, oh, I don’t know, about five whole minutes. During that time he managed to use the same answer 25+ times, like he usually does. In order to avoid being fined $500,000 for not appearing in front of the media, Lynch once again used the same answer for every question thrown at him. And it made for another classic Money Lynch moment.
A reporter asked the All-Pro tight end to read a line of Gronk Erotica (A Gronking to Remember) out loud for the whole crowd. The line: “In front of the entire country, Gronk’s spike impacts right between my buttcheeks.” The best part of this? He giggles after saying buttcheeks, further confirming that Gronk is, in fact, a man-child.
Earl Thomas’ Bruno Mars Look
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll actually stated during his media sessions that the All-Pro cornerback is the best dancer on the Seahawks, and Sherman even demonstrated some of his moves for the Media Day crowd during his own session. He had a little help from a reporter.
Bill Belichick’s Flip Flops
With pop superstar Katy Perry performing the halftime show this Sunday, a reporter started singing a few verses from some of Perry’s hits, and got Gronkowski to help her. Let’s just say she’s a much better singer than Rob.
Michael Bennett and Brett Keisel Compare Beards
Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, sporting a sweet-looking cowboy hat and a large beard (he’s been growing it out for a year and a half, he says), was approached by Pittsburgh Steelers’ defensive end and Super Bowl champion Brett Keisel. Keisel, of course, has the greatest beard in the National Football League, and possibly even NFL history. Bennett was clearly jealous of his beard. In addition the the Bennett/Keisel interaction, Bennett’s session stole the show today, as he had many great one-liners throughout the session.
