Super Bowl Media Day is a right of passage for the players.
“People are grabbing me, shoving lights in my face, I love it,” said Patriots defensive end Alex Silvestro.
Media Day is a very different game.
Sombreros and furry hats replace helmets.
For one day reporters, not the players, are at play on the field.
For the players it’s a chance to unwind before putting it all on the line.
On the other side of the lens, everyone seems to be looking for an edge.
Some crews use phones or tablets, others are willing to mount a camera just about anywhere, even on their heads.
For the teams, though, the fun and games are now over.
Just a few days are left to prepare for the game.
