Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith's postgame news conference was interrupted briefly by an unidentified man who grabbed the microphone and addressed reporters around Smith's podium.

"Investigate 9/11,'' he said. "9/11 was perpetrated by our own government.''

The microphone was quickly taken away by Dolphins public relations director Harvey Greene, who was assisting the Super Bowl media.

Smith looked surprised, then asked reporters, "Is everyone all right? . . . Somebody check his press pass.''
