Your dumbest Media Day moments

You're always going to get your full daily requirement of dumbness at Super Bowl Media Day, particularly with regard to the questions that get asked. These days, in fact, some "reporters" actually compete to see who can throw out the most off-the-wall queries.

And, no, I'm not going to bring up the famous how-long-have-you-been-a-black-quarterback question for Doug Williams, on account of it turns out to be mostly urban legend.

But I do remember that in 2007, when the Colts and Bears played in Miami, someone asked Desmond Clark what position Chewbacca would have played if he'd played football. Seriously.

So no different in New Orleans yesterday, where this happened.

A Pegasus? Really?

I think if I had a Pegasus, I'd name him What The (Bleep). So that when some attention junkie asked, "If you had a Pegasus, what would you name him?" I could reply "What the (bleep)?"
