Media day moved inside
By Paul Kuharsky
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Greetings from the Super Bowl XLIV press room. It’s a quality set up. The lighting is a little dim, but when one is sitting opposite Tim Graham, that can be a good thing.
Barring delays, the Colts make their official debut in about 90 minutes at their nearby hotel, where we will hear from Jim Caldwell and six players. I’ll bring you all of the necessary commentary as quickly as possible after that.
Players and coaches won’t quite be getting the full media day experience Tuesday, as heavy rain has prompted the league to move the festivities indoors. Instead of lining people up at podiums along a sideline of Sun Life Field, they’ll be inside on the club level. I suspect it will dampen the circus-like atmosphere, but we'll withhold judgment as to whether that’s a good or bad thing until after.
Offense and defense may be split up, and odds are it will be a more cramped situation than usual. But talking time is talking time, and we’ll get our questions asked.
