NEWARK, N.J. - Marshawn Lynch, action hero.
That’s your takeaway from Super Bowl XLVIII Media Day, held Tuesday on the floor of the New Jersey Devils’ home arena, the Prudential Center.
Even though there was at least one caped jamoke among the thousands of compressed journalists and cameramen actually dressed head-to-toe as a comic-book superhero of sorts -- no faster than a media-bus police escort through Manhattan, yet able to leap thick coils of coaxial cable in a single bound -- it was the reclusive Seattle Seahawks running back, Lynch, who perhaps said the most by, as usual, saying the least.
And for the least amount of time.
Before walking away from reporters after just six-and-a-half minutes of scheduled one-hour team access, Lynch was asked if he enjoyed media attention, as a growing number of writers and camerman -- perhaps a hundred -- swarmed him.
