No question is off the table -- before Super Bowl XXXIV, someone once asked Kurt Warner for a lock of his hair. Before Super Bowl XLII, a woman working for a Latin American network showed up in a wedding dress and proposed to Tom Brady. That's what happens when you get 5,000 credentialed media -- not all of them serious journalists.
The NFL recently realized that this is another way to get ordinary fans closer to the action -- now they sell tickets to Media Day.
"It's just a really strong and powerful way to bring the fans that close to the action and a lot of them probably won't be able to go to the game," said New Orleans Saints co-owner Rita Benson LeBlanc. "It's the festivities of it. The sponsors come down but there are tons of people who don't have a game ticket that we want to enjoy the experience."
