It's media day folks, and that means a parade of players and coaches from the Ravens and the 49ers will march to the podium in cavernous convention center in New Orleans to stand in front of the firing line of reporters, ranging from the usual beat guys to every other media outlet in the world, literally. More than 5,000 people are credentialed for the Super Bowl this year, a record. Quantity always makes quality, right?
Yes, I know the St. Louis Rams are not the ones down there giving press conferences. It's probably a good thing, since their only practice is taking "tough" questions from the worst NFL media pool in the country (it is a good opportunity for the Rams to control the brand though ... don't think they don't know that).
Soon enough, they'll be there though, soon enough.
Here's how you can watch the fun.
The NFL Network will be televising live from the event beginning at 10:00 a.m. ET, and coverage will run through 2:30 p.m. when the Ravens are expected to wrap up their portion of the day. The Network will then immediately re-air coverage through 6:30 p.m.
Those stuck on their computers can stream festivities live from their laptop via NFL.com. Of course, Twitter will be blowing up with updates as well. SB Nation's own David Fucillo and Amy K. Nelson will have their boots on the ground. Be sure to follow them.
