A radio guy invites a player at Dolphin Stadium to join him at his table, instead of talking to the player, they put little robots on the top and fight each other with them. Right now the radio guy's robot is fighting the robot operated by the Chicago Bears' Mark LeVoir.
Media day usually is sappy, but not Tuesday. Face it. We've all wondered what would happen when a radio guy's robot fought a robot operated by a tackle on Chicago's practice squad, and now we have the answer. The radio guy's robot wins.
There is other serious journalism being practiced, and one of the journalists doing the practicing is Warren Sapp of the NFL Network and the Oakland Raiders.
Sapp wears a long lime green shirt that hangs out. Although he appears to have lost weight, he still looks like a putting green.
Some reporters get more attention than Sapp. One is a woman from TV Azteca who, well, stands out. Although lean, she stands way out. Players, journalists and even a team physician get their picture taken with her.
But the reporters who collect the most attention are the two guys, Jonathan and Kennith, I think their names are, who were eliminated from American Idol after the judges first attempted to humilate them. They have since appeared on Jimmy Kimmel. They're stars.
On Tuesday they walk up to a player and ask him to join them in a rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." And some of the players do.
"Do you watch American Idol?" the blond Idol reject, either Jonathan or Kennith, asks Indianapolis receiver Marvin Harrison. Harrison, who is known for running great routes and having no sense of humor, starts to say no, and then sees the questioners.
"I know who you are," Harrison says. "I saw you on Leno."
Let's give the kids credit. You don't have to have a journalism degree, a green shirt or a fighting robot to find the truth. You only have to ask the right question.
"What's your favorite sport?" the kid asks Harrison.
