Media Day kicks off Super Bowl week in Minnesota


St. PAUL, Minnesota (WTNH)– With both the Eagles and the Patriots finally in Minnesota, Super Bowl week officially kicked off with Media Day hosted at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

It was opening night, also known as media day. Both teams are completely available for the media in what’s become a televised event in front of fans and believe me they didn’t shy away from the cameras.

The players. The fans. The theatrics.

Jacob and Cody Holliste, are twin brothers who play for the Patriots.

“Fire and smoke,” they said.

Media Day for Super Bowl 52 did not disappoint. An atmosphere for players to let loose.

There was a shark, games, and even Jalen Mills sporting green hair.

“You can’t say you want to go to Super Bowl and not,” said Mills.

And in a game that showcases Tom Brady against Nick Foles and a chance for a franchise. A first against a dynasty’s 6th, both teams are confident they will be celebrating Sunday night.

“We just have to bring our best. Play the way,” said Rashard Davis, Wide Receiver for the Eagles. “We’ve been playing and do our best.”

“This is my first time being here, winning a NFC Championship and playing for a Super Bowl so it will mean a lot to me and I’m sure of it,” said Brandon Brooks Offensive Guard for the Eagles. “It will mean a lot for the city and I can’t wait to see the city when we win.”

“You don’t just wake up in the morning and play for a Super Bowl or have the season we have. It’s a lot of hard work and dedication that goes into this game,” said Malcom Brown, Defensive Lineman for the Patriots.

Now that media day is in the books, the focus shifts to the game.

Fans for both the Patriots and Eagles were out showing support for both teams and that was Monday Night. You know they’ll be flowing through the Twin Cities by week’s end.
