‘Weird’ day kicks off Super week

Harbaugh’s not a hash-tagger, but Tucker is, see: ‘Hash tag, awesome’
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs kicked off Media Day on Tuesday in New Orleans with ... a kick. Suggs stood up, threw down his microphone, kicked over his chair with a back heel as he stepped down from his podium, then he kicked over a cooler. Onlookers laughed; it was Media Day after all.
Super Bowl XLVII

NEW ORLEANS – A look at Tuesday’s news from the Super Bowl in New Orleans.



News of the Day: A report by Sports Illustrated that Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis sought help from a company that makes deer-antler spray to speed his recovery from a torn right triceps. The company said the substance contains a byproduct of human growth hormone (a banned substance). Lewis dismissed the report as “stupidity.”

Quoting the Ravens: “The fans will let you know about it, especially when you have a bad game. But I play real football. Am I a fantasy football star? According to my Twitter, I’m terrible,” said Ravens WR Torrey Smith, who scored eight touchdowns but had two or fewer catches in half his 16 games.

Quoting the 49ers: “I wanted to be a player and play for as long as I could and then coach and then die,” Coach Jim Harbaugh said when asked about his earliest memories of wanting to be a coach.

Next Two Super Sites’ Temperatures: New Orleans (76 degrees, cloudy, rain); New York/New Jersey (43 degrees, humid, rain).

Bragging Rights: “I really do think that I’m the greatest receiver to ever play this game,” 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss said.

Tweet of the Day: “New Orleans...It’s damn good to see you!!” – former Saints linebacker Scott Fujita wrote upon his return to the Big Easy.

Fun Facts: The NFL said 5,205 media members have been credentialed for the Super Bowl, and more than 2,000 showed up for Media Day. Those sessions also were open to fans for $25, and paid attendance was 5,479 in the Superdome.

Super Talk: “We didn’t spend a whole lot of time talking. We did talk a little on the phone last night, which was cool. We were talking about tickets and making sure Mom and Dad had a hotel room. That was pretty much the conversation – logistics,” said Ravens coach John Harbaugh, on speaking with his brother and 49ers coach, Jim Harbaugh.
