Broncos QB Peyton Manning answers question from Nickelodeon ‘Reporter’ wearing costume

One of Peyton Manning’s first questions during Super Bowl media day was from a man dressed in a costume.

In a sea of cameras and reporters at Media Day, somehow “Pick Boy” who is apparently a reporter for Nickelodeon Sports got Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning to accept a notebook of full of plays he had supposedly drawn up. He even tells Manning that he changed his signature “Omaha” call to “Albuquerque.”

Every year, silly questions asked by non-media members bring up the discussion that whether media day is useless. And this is a perfect example of why many don’t pay attention to it. In what could be Manning’s final game, the fact that some people aren’t taking the opportunity to ask one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time a serious question is a waste of time.

Who knows if Manning took the time to look at the book or if it ended up in a trash bin, but I suggest that Peyton shouldn’t read it. Coach Gary Kubiak wouldn’t want his quarterback confusing plays from the real playbook with some a childish Nickelodeon character wrote.
