Memo to Media: We Get It Media Day is Crazy

There was a reporter a few years ago, Tim Polzer, who wrote the definitive story on Media Day. (The story, however, has disappeared into thin air.) He crushed Media Day at the Super Bowl and ever since then, it seems people have spent Media Day talking about how crazy it is.

Yeah, we get it.

Reporters ask stupid questions. On Monday, somebody asked Kurt Warner what it was like to play for a head coach that was younger than he was. Only KWM is 38, Ken Whisenhunt is around 46 (sorry, not looking it up). And there were probably some dumb questions asked again on Tuesday.

Guess what, though? Nobody cares. We don't care about the Telemundo broad with the body of the neighbor from Something About Mary is doing. We don't care who challenged anybody to a dance off. Media Day is akin to a couple of adolescences swapping fart jokes. And if that's your kind of thing, well, bully for you.

But please. For the love of God. Quit telling us how crazy it is. We understand that. Oh look, Jeff Reed (pictured) has crazy hair. If you went on the league's official site, that's pretty much what they were talking about. Wonderful.

Honestly, I'm ready for this week to be over. And yet, I have yet to really start.

Someone should ask the KWM if stem cell research could lead to a way to reverse the brain damage from repeated concussions.

I stopped paying attention to Media Day ever since some idiot reporter asked Doug Williams how long he's been a black quarterback.

That Doug Williams question is fantastic.

Also, which team has Guy Fieri on its roster?
