Over the last ten years, Super Bowl Media Day has gone from a day dedicated to gathering information about the two teams competing in the big game to a day of reporters dressing up like brides and asking quarterbacks to marry them. (Um, can we just get to the game please?) It’s silly and it’s fun and it’s usually a waste of time.
