Super Bowl week is upon us, and with it comes the annual tradition of Media Day, held Tuesday at the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans. As expected, much of the attention was placed on Ray Lewis and his retirement from football, as well as the storyline of brothers Jim and John Harbaugh coaching against each other on Sunday. We were treated to a little bit of everything, from serious subjects including Lewis’ alleged performance-enhancing drug use and the long-term effect of head injuries on the game, to the lighter fare like 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick showing off his trademark “Kaepernicking” and Niners tackle Joe Staley sporting a fake tattoo sleeve. Over the years, Super Bowl Media Day has become a spectacle of its own, featuring everything from trash talk to marriage proposals. As this annual event comes to a close and the teams resume their pregame preparations, take a look back at some of the more memorable moments in Super Bowl Media Day history. Check out the best of Super Bowl Media Day>>
