Good morning from the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. where the circus known as Super Bowl media day is underway. If hearing the Rutgers band play Paula Abdul is your thing, they’ve got you covered here. And hey, now we’ve got a performance from the cast of the Broadway musical “Motown.” Because, well, why not.
Soon enough we’ll hear from some Seahawks, one of whom may not be Marshawn Lynch. At least that’s what he told Mike Silver of the NFL Network, one of the few reporters Lynch has opened up to in recent years. If Lynch is a no-show, he’d be facing a pretty stiff fine from the league, so even though he was not assigned a podium for today (which is where star players usually are), my guess is he’ll be available, and give the short answers that have been his custom since he started talking a few weeks back.
We also have a notebook leading off with Michael Bennett’s comedy act yesterday, a look at why marijuana is a story at this week’s Super Bowl, an our daily postcard from New York.
Lots more Seahawks coverage from our friends at the News Tribune here.
Because Richard Sherman is still a huge story here, here’s a good L.A. Times piece on Seattle’s much talked about cornerback.
Sherman also weighed in on TheMMQB.com with what he’s learned from his postgame rant and the fallout has came with it.
From bleacherreport.com, an interesting look at Lynch from a former college teammate.
