Chad Ochocinco is in a precarious situation this year, how will his “news organization” portray its founder, who this year for the first time in his career is a participant in the Super Bowl? Will it be guilty of typical media bias or will they be a fair and balanced?
Obviously I’m kidding, but for the second time the Buccaneers’ very own Gerald McCoy will be working for OCNN and covering media day. You can follow Gerald McCoy on Twitter (@Geraldini93), or if you are not an avid user of Twitter, you can check back periodically throughout the day and read McCoy’s tweets and coverage of the circus that is Super Bowl media day in the box below.
It’s nice at least one of the Bucs got to attend the Super Bowl this year, though the early part of the week is a little bit much. ESPN had already overdone the coverage by 2 o’clock yesterday, and media day is an outright bonanza. It features normal media as well as international media and attention-seeking fringe media. They clearly credential anyone because some of the stories from media days in years past are pretty wild.
Case in point McCoy and Jaguars’ running back Maurice Jones-Drew will be walking the floor and questioning their fellow players as well as just drinking in the atmosphere.
Hopefully one day it will be the other way around with McCoy sitting at a media stand surrounded by throngs of reporters with Chad Ochocinco trying to interview him.
