A day unlike any other, a day when sports and entertainment collide.
Today is Super Bowl Media Day when a crush of reporters and media-types will descend on Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis to interview coaches and players of the New York Giants and New England Patriots.
It’s a day when not only the Tom Bradys and Eli Mannings get the spotlight, but also their supporting cast. The 53rd man on the roster will give nonstop interviews as well.
Several former Packers will be talking with reporters today.
Those with ties to the Packers currently with the Giants include cornerback and return specialist Will Blackmon, safety Derrick Martin, defensive lineman Dave Tollefson and defensive line coach Robert Nunn.
Patriots with ties to Green Bay include linebacker Tracy White and offensive lineman Nick McDonald.
Several Packers beat reporters are also in Indianapolis covering the festivities including Bob McGinn, Tom Silverstein and Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, as well as Kareem Copeland of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
