Presenting this year’s weirdest question from Super Bowl Media Day…

As if Media Day wasn't insufferable enough (trust me, I'll have much more to say later today), ESPN decided it was a great idea to get fan questions from Twitter to ask players.  Why?  God only knows.  Because there weren't enough pointless questions already being asked by people wearing masks and capes and Katherine Webb, I suppose.  Out of all the fan questions sent in, ESPN selected @BrentSmith_27's question – "On a scale of 1 to 10, how ticklish are you?"  Unfortunately for Brent, ESPN didn't ask Ray Rice as he suggested, but Ravens TE Dennis Pitta.  Maybe Ray was offended at being asked such a personal question.

And God love him, Pitta answered the question with a straight face and complimented it as a good question.  Perhaps the fact that he's "moderately ticklish" will be a major factor in Super Bowl XLVII.  Of course, Pitta could have been just content to get any questions after his podium looked like a Virgil signing.

All I know is this silliness symbolizes Media Day in all its hideous, grotesque glory.

Also, WHO SAYS ESPN CAN'T DO JOURNALISM!!
