The annual Super Bowl Media Day takes place today, and here are some phony questions that won't be as ridiculous as the real ones at this annual farce:
To Richard Sherman: “If you were a superhero, which superhero would you be and could your enemies be considered thugs?”
To Peyton Manning: “If you win the Super Bowl, will you finally be even with Eli in terms of NFL accomplishments?”
To Marshawn Lynch: “Do you prefer regular or sour Skittles and if the endorsement money was enough, would you switch to M&M's?"
In a survey of 320 NFL players, 85 percent said they would play in the Super Bowl even if they knew they had a concussion. The other 15 percent play for the Jacksonville Jaguars and said the question made no sense whatsoever.
Meteorologists say it's likely the outdoor Super Bowl will have temperatures around normal for New Jersey this time of year (somewhere in the 30s) with a chance for snow showers. There is a 100 percent chance for media overkill, however.
The NHL sold 105,491 tickets for the Michigan Stadium outdoor game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings, but it won't be a Guinness record because too many fans arrived long after the game began.
So I guess you could say they staged a hockey game and a Los Angeles Lakers crowd broke out.
A Texas A&M supporter has put up a billboard in Houston suggesting the Texans use their No.1 draft pick on Johnny Manziel to “Keep Johnny football in Texas." If you can afford billboard space, you'd think you could spring for an uppercase F.
Babe Ruth's 1923 World Series championship pocketwatch will be up for auction next month and is expected to sell for at least $750,000. Young baseball fans are confused over why Ruth needed a pocket watch when smartphones always display the time.
Greg Maddux has decided not to have a logo on his cap on his Hall of Fame plaque rather than choose between the Chicago Cubs, where he started and ended his career, and the Atlanta Braves, where he had his biggest wins. Unfortunately, attempts to combine the caps into the Chitlanta Brubs were unsuccessful.
