The calm before the storm officially kicks off Monday as the countdown to Super Bowl 52 week begins with the annual Super Bowl Media Day festivities. Super Bowl Media Day, now being dubbed “Opening Night,” is always an exciting event to watch, not to just hear what the players have to say about the big game, but you literally never know what is going to happen!

Anything goes at media day

If you love football and have never watched Super Bowl Media Day, the big question is...why not? While players from both the Eagles and Patriots will give interviews and insights, sometimes the craziest things take place that has nothing to do with the upcoming game.

From Cooper Manning showing up last year in his money suit to a “fake” Tom Brady taking time out to play catch with fans and media, you just never know what will happen.

Of course, who can forget Tom Brady getting a marriage proposal from Mexican reporter, Ines Gomez Mont? TV Azteca reporter, Gomez Mont, who looked stunning in her wedding dress proposed to the Patriots quarterback in front of over 4,000 media members at University of Phoenix Stadium during media day back in 2008.

"Tom, I'm in love with you! Will you marry me please?" Gomez Mont shouted to Brady during her attempted interview.

Brady was a good sport during the event but it seems Mont wasn't phased by Brady turning down her proposal. She later moved on to New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and proposed to him as well.

The media that covers the Super Bowl has increased 100 fold since its humble beginnings 52 years ago. When the Green Bay Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10 in Super Bowl 1, not only was there not much media coverage, but many people believed that the Super Bowl as an annual game would not survive.

Can you believe that?

Now the game sees anywhere between 3-5,000 different media outlets covering the action worldwide annually, along with hundreds of millions of viewers watching on television.
