As I write this it's sleeting, raining, snowing and -- what the what? -- lightning-ing in Collin County. With any luck I'll be out at Super Bowl XLV Media Day later this morning.
It's Media Day, of course, that's giving us such dramatic moments in the past such as Leon Lett suffering a panic attack at XXVIII and running off the field, Duane Thomas offering his famous "If it's the ultimate game why do they play one every year?" before VI and and in advance of XXII some knucklehead reporter asking Doug Williams "So how long have you been a black quarterback?"
Stay tuned. I'll have my Top 10 Media Day observations, God and Old Man Winter willing.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
