Super Bowl media day gives reporters a chance to try to catch NFL players off guard by asking bizarre questions. This year's media day was no different.
Coming into the event, everyone wanted to see how Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman handled himself in the spotlight. He was the main attraction for the media, and he was not immune to the ridiculous questions.
Sherman had a chance to talk about strippers. Yes, strippers:
The outspoken corner declined to say anything about Justin Bieber:
Someone asked Richard Sherman if he had anything to say to/about Justin Bieber. After cracking up Sherman just replied "I don't" #MediaDay— SNF on NBC (@SNFonNBC) January 28, 2014
Denver Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas wasn't falling for any traps, via 92.3 The Fan's Daryl Ruiter:
#Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas was asked which celebrity he'd prefer to have a 1 night stand with— Daryl Ruiter (@RuiterWrongFAN) January 28, 2014
Those were odd questions, but we have a candidate for the worst question ever asked at a media day, via the Los Angeles Times' Sam Farmer:
Some guy at media day just asked Shaun Phillips if he considers this a must-win game. Check, please.— Sam Farmer (@LATimesfarmer) January 28, 2014
Anyone hoping for this will probably be disappointed:
Somebody asked Peyton at Super Bowl Media Day if he would be making an appearance on SNL this week... the night before the Super Bowl...— pat james (@patjames24) January 28, 2014
Sports Illustrated's Chris Burke shared another random question that was asked:
New worst question leader: "Who has the smelliest farts in the locker room?" What are we doing here ...— Chris Burke (@ChrisBurke_SI) January 28, 2014
Not a bad way to respond to this question, via the New York Times' Ben Shpigel:
And so Danny Trevathan was just asked whether he'd rather see Andy Reid or Mark Mangino in a thong. (He declined to answer)— Ben Shpigel (@benshpigel) January 28, 2014
This is what media day has turned into.
