Dumbest Media Question

*Guest blogger today!

"CNN.com says it will be listing the dumbest media questions asked of the teams playing in the upcoming Super Bowl.

"I can give them the dumbest question asked of any coach right now!

"It happens just before the half of every football game. Some TV reporter sticks the microphone in the coach's face and asks what's their strategy for winning the game, or some variation of that question.

"And the answer is obvious - score more points than the other team!!! Duh! Am I the only one who thinks this?

"I would love for some coach to make that their answer some day. Until then, I just continue to grumble at the stupidity of it all!"

- Sarah Gardner, wife of Bronco's receiever, Matt Gardner

No, you're not the only one who thinks this, I never know whether to laugh, cry, or hit the mute button and run for the sidelines when that question gets asked. You hit the nail on the head, Sarah. Football, like most sports, is simplicity itself: you score as many points as you can while preventing the other team from scoring any. Sure, there are strategies and strategies-within-strategies, but what coach is going to give them away on national TV? Media idiocy is at its worst during the two weeks of hype preceding the Super Bowl. All the players, coaching staffs, and fans want is to just play the game, but we really must squeeze every possible buck out of the event, mustn't we?
