Well, will you look at that? America's girlfriend Katherine Webb made an appearance at the Superdome on Tuesday to "work" the Super Bowl media day for "Inside Edition." It was an assignment that made sense, of course. The gal pal of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron has been the sweetheart of the moment ever since she ended up in the googly-eyed sights of broadcaster Brent Musburger. She's going to draw eyeballs and ratings, something our Yahoo! Sports blog team knows only too well.
However, as our own Dr. Saturday notes, it appeared as if Ms. Webb — who was led around by a team of "handlers" — was taking more questions than she was asking. That no doubt infuriated Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, who harrumphed that media day was all about "people coming to try to make things about them." (Gee Jay, who would do such a thing?)
But Webb, of course, was far from the only media member looking to work her way into the spotlight. As usual, the media day event attracted a score of "reporters" looking to make the scene. While we generally do enjoy the circus they create, we also reserve the right to mock them for the absurdity of their presence.
So, without further delay, here are 10 reporters they probably shouldn't have let get close to the 49ers and Ravens at the Superdome on Tuesday afternoon:
