Looking Back at the Media Day Sideshows

OK, it's the one you've probably been waiting for all day. At this point, the only thing more predictable on Super Bowl media day than canned answers are the antics of a few that tend to steal the show and become their own story. In most cases, it's foreign television like TV Azteca or Telemundo. (Or as we mentioned earlier, Entertainment Tonight doing American Idol auditions.) Telemundo's Mireya Grisales, ex-American Idol finalist Kimberly Caldwell and the unidentified TV Azteca reporter (wearing red in our slideshow) turned many heads today. Oh, and Ross Matthews was here for Leno (pictured in both Saints and Colts jerseys) but the Conan wound is still a little fresh, so let's not waste too much time on that. Anyway, images from some of the more bizarre scenes in slideshow form: ↵

↵Yes, the folks from Telemundo had a Will Smith cardboard cutout face on a stick and a puppet for some reason. Also, Grisales actually changed outfits. She dressed as something that resembled a cowboy during the Colts session, and then came back dressed as an angel during the Saints session. Some things are just lost in translation I suppose. Anyway, she had more than a little fun with the Saints who weren't spending time at the star podiums. Video of Grisales trying to learn the Who Dat chant follows after the jump. ↵

↵Following this video, at least one Saints player kept yelling "I'm going to get those digits!" (I don't think he did, for the record.) But that about wraps things up on the TSB end for Tuesday. We're off to the media party where I hope and pray there is food. Back at it tomorrow with Michael Tunison interviewing Jerome Bettis, chats with Chris Cooley, Ray Rice plus a host of players Wednesday night at a Playboy VIP event.↵
