INDIANAPOLIS -- Radio Row has gone from a ghost town to hopping in 24 hours. Almost all of this had to do with Tim Tebow (who we somehow missed) and Madonna (who we didn't). Enjoy.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Tuesday was Media Day. And while it was more subdued than in previous years, there was still plenty to see. (Click photos to enlarge.)

“Have I changed? Probably, but I think it’s important as the process of learning. You learn, develop, and change every year." - Tom Coughlin (Photo credit: Ryan Wilson, CBSSports.com) "I’m not in to making predictions. It’s not my job to list quarterbacks. [Brady's] obviously a future Hall of Famer. He’s had a tremendous career. It’s his fifth Super Bowl, so that’s amazing. This is a team game. Win or lose, based on how the team plays. Hopefully the Giants can be the better team on Sunday.” - Eli Manning (Photo credit: Ryan Wilson, CBSSports.com)

“Yeah, there is a lot of [talking] going back and forth (between the two teams), but that’s just football. We are all competitive guys that just want to win. We all think we are better than one another. That’s just what it leads to.” - Brandon Jacobs (Photo credit: Ryan Wilson, CBSSports.com) “[Media Day] is just a lot of hoopla. We are just ready to play football and go out there and have fun. Just staying focused this week is the main key.” - Ahmad Bradshaw (Photo credit: Ryan Wilson, CBSSports.com)
“We practice as if Gronkowski is going to play. If he doesn’t play, then you just go to a different gameplan, but It’s all on Coach Perry (Fewell), how Coach Perry wants to play it out. He will put us in the best position to win the football game.” - Jason Pierre-Paul (Photo credit: Ryan Wilson, CBSSports.com) “Playing football again was that goal, and that really pushed me. After six hours of chemotherapy, you’re sitting there and your body just feels drained. You don’t want to move, but I said, ‘I am going to be playing football again in eight months, so I need to go and workout." - Mark Herzlich (Photo credit: Ryan Wilson, CBSSports.com)
"I think [Belichick's] enjoying himself.  I think he’s got a lady in his life, so that could definitely be the case; I don’t know.  We’re just coming here to try and win a ballgame.  However we do that or whatever demeanor we have to take, that’s what it’s going to be.” - Wes Welker (Photo credit: Ryan Wilson, CBSSports.com) “Draft day was definitely frustrating. At first, I wasn’t buying into the mock draft boards. But I’m glad I came to this team and I love the New York Giants organization and what they stand for. It’s been working out well so far.” - Prince Amukamara (Photo credit: Ryan Wilson, CBSSports.com)

Media Day viewing for fans will cost big bucks

Super Bowl Media Day from Dallas (US Presswire).

By Josh Katzowitz

INDIANAPOLIS -- Here’s how much the local fans are embracing their city’s first Super Bowl. They’ve sold out the 7,000 tickets made available to watch Media Day. Not only that, but they’re being made available on the secondary ticket market for more than 14 times their face value.

This is not unlike last year’s Super Bowl in Dallas when fans could buy tickets to stand outside the stadium and watch the game on video boards for a face value ticket of $200. At least with the Media Day event, fans will be inside Lucas Oil Field and can watch live events occurring on the field.

But in order to do so, you’re going to have to pay up.

[CBSSports.com's Full Super Bowl Coverage]

Originally, tickets to media cost $25, but those passes, via Ticketmaster, are sold out. On StubHub, one person is selling two tickets for $350 (!) a piece. You can also get a ticket for the less insane* prices of $150 and $79 a piece.

*Let’s be honest, though. Buying a scalped ticket for Media Day seems rather insane anyway.

And though I’m being snarky in this post, I actually think it’s pretty cool these tickets are made available. For the fans who can’t get into the actual game, participating in some part of Super Bowl week activity will be a fun experience. To see live players less than 30 yards away will be exciting.

And for a city to show overboard enthusiasm, like we’re seeing so far, that only can help in getting the NFL to bestow another Super Bowl on this city in the near future.
