Media day chatter
By Ohm Youngmisuk
INDIANAPOLIS -- By Super Bowl media day standards, things were pretty tame at the Giants Super Bowl media session today.
The Giants enjoyed themselves and Tom Coughlin was even seen breaking out a smile or two.
Osi Umenyiora deflected talk of a feud between him and Patriots' left tackle Matt Light. The two have gotten into two on-field skirmishes before.
Umenyiora said mostly nice things about Light, who was not at media day for the Patriots reportedly under the weather.
The defensive end did talk about his topsy-turvy journey from holding out in camp to making the Super Bowl.
Also, Brandon Jacobs talked about his best friend Plaxico Burress and said the former Giant will be coming to Indy to watch the Giants and that his heart was with the Giants even though he signed with the Jets.
Jacobs also left the door open for a possible Plaxico reunion as well.
As for the scene at media day, this was the first year fans were allowed to watch in the stands.
There weren't as many celebrities conducting interviews -- R&B star Ciara was the biggest in attendance -- and a few people dressed up in costumes like a Super hero and an old-time football uniform.
