MediaDay
Some lineman on the Colts (No. 65) got bored and decided to videotape a bored Jeff Saturday talking to the media. And I was so bored, I took a picture of it.

MediaDay
Close-up shot of Brian Baldinger's hand with the mutant pinkie. I couldn't resist. Seeing that thing in person is like seeing Dirk Diggler whip it out at the end of "Boogie Nights" -- you're just never the same afterward. I want to see a show where former offensive linemen show off their war wounds for an entire hour. Like you wouldn't watch this?

MediaDay
The coolest guy at media day: Bob Sanders. I felt cooler just listening to him for 35 seconds. He needs his own talk show or something.

MediaDay
Every year, one of the Spanish channels sends a correspondent who interviews people with a hand puppet. It's exceptionally disturbing. Let's just move on.

MediaDay
Here's another random subplot that fascinated me: How did Tarik Glenn fit into that wooden chair? I'm convinced that's why we had a 20-minute delay to start the Colts' session. I think they had to saw the chair off him.
