Tom Coughlin and Bill Belichick give final press conferences
Earlier this morning, Bill Belichick and Tom Coughlin addressed the media for the final time until Sunday. The press conferences have gotten progressively shorter as the week has worn on. There's only so many ways you can ask Coughlin about how he has become more patient.
The only interesting thing to come of of this morning's presser was the venue. The head coaches were brought to the large room at the JW Marriott to hold the presser instead of their hotel, where it has been all this week. It's the same room at the JW that Madonna held her presser yesterday.
The Lombardi Trophy was present on a table with a Giants and Patriots helmet. Each coach posed behind the table for a photo. I tweeted a picture of the Lombardi Trophy.
Cool moment when legendary coach Don Shula was exiting the room - after presenting the NFL Coach of the Year award - when he ran into Coughlin. They shared a moment as photographers swarmed them.
The next time we see Belichick and Coughlin will be at Lucas Oil Stadium when they're leading their teams out of the tunnel.
Commissioner Roger Goodell has a press conference at 11:30 a.m. Might be worth checking out.
Radio Row should be pumping with lots of guests. I missed Tim Tebow yesterday while I was running from event-to-event. I'll be sure to stalk Radio Row later on. It's hard to pull someone over and get a short video with them because producers are pulling them in 10 different directions.
I saw former head coach Dick Vermeil hanging out watching the Shula press conference.
I have tentative plans with the Newsday video team to ride the zip line later, which could produce a good video. I'll be sure to check out Super Bowl Village today as the weather is supposed to get nasty tomorrow with rain.
Check back later for updates and maybe more raw iPhone videos.
