ugh the neutral ice to attack, and

PHOENIX - Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch knew he had to talk. It didnt mean he had to say anything.So, in essence, he didnt. And now, onto our regularly scheduled Super Bowl Media Day, where the players and coaches are window dressing, and its really more about whos asking the questions.There was Barrel Boy. A pair of buck-toothed sock puppets. A guy sporting a purple shirt, a bicycle helmet and seven Go Pro cameras, so I can catch all the angles, precisely.These characters are the sort that have helped turn an event that began as a convenient place to fill up the notebook in advance of the NFL title game into the full-fledged theatre of the absurd it has become.On Tuesday, about 2,000 reporters — make that people with credentials — filed into the U.S. Airways Center, worked their way down the stairs past a marching band playing a version of Blondies 1980 hit, Call Me, and got down to business.The New England Patriots filed in and the clock started ticking down from 60:00.As the reporters, cameramen and Nickelodeon superhero Pick Boy elbowed for position, the questions began.As expected, New England coach Bill Belichick wasnt forthcoming about much. But now, thanks to a question asked by a kid, we know his favourite stuffed animals are those cute little monkeys you put your fingers in to make them talk.Those wishing to someday see Patriots quarterback Tom Bradys etchings were in luck. Sort of. A sketch artist got a credential and spent the morning penning out pictures of the Man himself: Life imitating art imitating Leroy Neiman.Looking for a Joe Namath-like guarantee at Media Day? The game will be on Sunday, promised Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.Oh, there were moments of actual reporting going on — some even done by people other than ESPNs Chris Berman, NFL Networks Deion Sanders and the rest of the reporter-celebrity crowd that fields as many questions as they ask.Patriots owner Bob Kraft, who had his last say on the deflated-footballs matter during a surprise showing at the New England news conference Monday, came out Tuesday and stood in a corner — not to talk about Deflategate, but, among other things, to talk about why he talked about Deflategate.The reason I did what I did yesterday was so that all of our fans and (me) and my family can enjoy this game, he said.Belichick stood by his guns. He wasnt going to mention it anymore: Were just focused on Seattle this week, he said.Speaking of Seattle, about a half-hour before the Seahawks took to the floor at the jammed, claustrophobic arena that the NBAs Phoenix Suns call home, a crowd started gathering around Podium No. 6. Lynchs name was up there. Quite a surprise, considering he spent last years Media Day in a corner, surrounded by teammates who wouldnt let any reporters near him.An hour with The Beast? Seemed promising.Then, he climbed the stairs, set his timer, said he was doing this so he wouldnt get fined and pronounced he would answer every question the same way until his time was up. That ended with about 57:30 remaining on the countdown clock, and its not a sure thing he was right about the fine thing. The Pro Football Writers Association is talking to the league about what happened and Lynch has been told theres a potential he could, indeed, have to pay up for leaving early.Once he left, his teammates fielded a number of questions about why Lynch doesnt like to talk, and why fans (read: media) seem so obsessed with hearing him talk.The way the NFL sells everything all the time, fans want to, like, be inside our minds, defensive lineman Michael Bennett said. The fact they dont get to do it all the time with Marshawn, it just makes them mad.OK, back to the important stuff:The white, brimmed hat Bennett was wearing was made of horse tweed and cost $800, for those of you who know about hats, he said.Those who know about figure skating wouldve liked what they saw.Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir were there. One was decked out in black leather pants, black shoes with chunky heels, a bejeweled necklace and a Seinfeld-esque puffy shirt. Lipinski looked good, too.They asked some questions. Answered more.As Seattles 60 minutes were wrapping up, a group of practice squad players were showing off their best dance moves for the camera — Jimmy Staten did the Sprinkler — while being surrounded by scantily clad ladies in cheerleading gear.A few steps away, a man wearing clowns makeup and a rubber-ribbon wig was carrying a microphone and following a reporter with a low-cut neckline that highlighted her painted-on black-and-white dress.In another corner, former Rams MVP quarterback Kurt Warner, now retired and with a TV gig, had a microphone in front of Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.This is football players interviewing football players, observed the legendary sports writer, Art Spander, now covering his 39th Super Bowl.And reporters interviewing reporters.No stone is left unturned at Media Day.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Bryan Trottier Jersey . -- Louisville backup quarterback Reggie Bonnafon ran for two touchdowns and passed for another and the No. Jaromir Jagr Jersey .

LOUIS -- Joe Thornton and the San Jose Sharks won the matchup of unbeaten teams.BROSSARD, Que. -- George Parros will get a taste of the Canadiens-Leafs rivalry right off the bat. The veteran enforcer who joined Montreal this summer has been declared fit to play in the NHL season opener against Toronto on Tuesday night at the Bell Centre. With Leafs tough guy Frazer McLaren out with a broken finger, some are making wagers on how long it will take Parros to tangle with one of Torontos other enforcers, like Colton Orr. "Its a big game and Im looking forward to it," Parros said Monday. "I had no pre-season games, but youve got to jump in at some point. "Its a source of pride for me to be back on time. And given the nature of the game -- the first game at home against a rival like that -- I think its going to be fun." Parros had off-season shoulder surgery and wasnt certain to be ready, but rehab went better than expected. Montreal hopes the six-foot-five right winger will even out the imbalance in size and grit the Canadiens, a smaller team that thrives on quickness, have endured against some teams in recent years. Coach Michel Therrien did not confirm his lineup, but Parros skated on the fourth line in practice with centre Brandon Prust and Travis Moen, while forwards Ryan White and Michael Bournival looked like they would sit out. The off-season saw Montreal add three veterans -- Parros, big defenceman Douglas Murray and scoring winger Danny Briere. Murray will not make his Canadiens debut. Therrien said the former San Jose Shark suffered an upper body injury in practice this week and will be out four-to-six weeks. His spot will be taken by six-foot-seven youngster Jarred Tinordi, who had an excellent camp. He skated on the third pair with Francis Bouillon. Defenceman P.K. Subban likes what he has seen of Tinordi, who got some regular season action and stayed on for the playoffs last season while filling in for Alexei Emelin, who will be out until December after ACL surgery. "Tinners a big guy and he plays physical and mean," said Subban. "I enjoy watching him hit guys and fight guys and all that fun stuff. "Hes going to be a very impactful player for our team. Itll be interesting to see what he looks like in a couple of years. If he continues to improve hell be a really good hockey player." Briere will make his Montreal debut on right wing on the top line with centre David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty. The Leafs will be without one of their key newcomers, David Clarkson, who is serving a 10-game suspension for leaving the bench during a pre-season brawl. Newcomers that may be in the lineup iinclude defenceman Paul Ranger and forwards Dave Bolland, Mason Raymond and Carter Ashton.dddddddddddd Coach Randy Carlyle has yet to decide whether James Reimer or new addition Jonathan Bernier will start in goal. Carlyle is aware the Canadiens have added size, but still sees their strengths as speed and a quick transition game. "Theyve got a well-rounded lineup, theyve got speed, theyve got a world-class goaltender in Carey Price," he said. "They went out and added more competitiveness to their mix. Theyve got a tough guy now in George Parros, a big, rugged defenceman in Murray. "Montreals a transition team, and if you turn the puck over, youre going to be playing in your own zone all night. They rely specifically on their skill-set and their speed through the neutral ice to attack, and if we turn the puck over its going to be a long night." Parros was a welcome addition for many of the Canadiens speedy forwards, but centre Lars Eller said the team is still built on moving the puck quickly. "We have an asset we didnt have before -- a big guy who can drop the gloves and be intimidating," said Eller. "Thats something we havent had a lot before. "But I still think our identity is speed and quickness. We cant forget that." The Leafs are not all size and physicality. They can also burn teams with speed. At least thats what Carlyle hopes to see. "Id like to see a team thats going to be a strong, forechecking hockey club," he said. "Were a skating team, and we have to skate, but we have to do some things that are going to allow us to skate. "We have to execute to a higher level than we have in the pre-season at puck recoveries and transitioning the puck out of our defensive zone through the neutral ice to allow us to get in and be a skating team. Were a hockey club that has to skate, and if were turning the puck, usually were skating in our own zone instead of the oppositions zone." Both teams made the playoffs last season, with Toronto ending a seven-year drought and Montreal rebounding from 15th in the Eastern Conference to second during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign. This season, most pundits see both in the mix for the final post-season berths in their newly realigned division, or perhaps one of the conferences two wildcard spots. Both the Leafs and Canadiens will want to show the other whos the favourite in the opener. "Its a good test right away," said Prust. "Theyve got a point to prove and weve got a point to prove. "It should be fun." Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
