The second part of Super Bowl XLVIII Media Day features the Seattle Seahawks facing thousands of media members and alleged media members/possible space aliens in the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

(Hit refresh to see updates.)

12:45 p.m. It’s “The Richard Sherman Show!” The Seahawks’ cornerback, a communications major at Stanford, is the first player to take his podium, says he loves what he sees at Media Day (making him pretty much alone). So far, he seems to be taking the “we” and “us” road, saying “these cameras should go to my teammates. … These cameras could be around anyone. … I have the best teammates in the world.”

He’s in there somewhere.

12:50 p.m. Probing interview points out to Richard Sherman that “the majority” of people watching want to see Sherman fail. (Really?) Sherman offers a far more intelligent answer than the question merits, saying he’s using to being the underdog.

What should people expect to see from Sherman on Sunday? “A great show.” That one might come back to bite him.

12:52 p.m. Warren Sapp’s hat was made during squirrel season.

12:54 p.m. We interrupt “TRSS.” “Hey, I’m Russell Wilson.”

12:55 p.m. Wilson is talking about playing baseball. People listen politely, then ask about Richard Sherman.

12:57 p.m. Terio is credentialed.

1 p.m. Wilson: “At the end of the day, football doesn’t define me. It’s faith, family, football.” He says he has the “Michael Jackson-Bruno Mars” hairstyle because he had it for an 11th-grade championship.

 

1:02 p.m. There are reports that Marshawn Lynch has already left Media Day. He wasn’t super-duper thrilled about the prospect of attending. Fortunately, he has that Skittles money, so he can take the fine for bailing.

1:04 p.m. Fortunately, Pete Carroll talks so fast he can speak for Lynch, too.

1:06 p.m. Lynch, dressed like a power running back version of Garbo, left the Prudential Center podium in his dust.

1:10 p.m. Can Golden Tate wear these Sunday?

1:12 p.m. Lynch has not left the building. Deion Sanders found him for a probing NFL Network interview. Deion: “You look good.” Lynch: “[Expletive], you do, too.” (Alert the FCC.)  Deion asked why Lynch stopped yapping on the podium. “I’m just about that action, boss. Been like that since I was little. Always been like that. Ain’t no need to talk about it. Just go get it.”

Lynch said he prefers a more relaxed approach. “Laid back, kicked back, stay in my own lane.”

Is he excited for the game? “Hell, yeah. Yeaaaaaah.”

The signoff?

Deion: “We love Beast Mode.” Lynch: “Beast Mode love and appreciate that.”

1:31 p.m. In an upset for the ages, the Broncos’ interviews are more interesting than the Seahawks’.

1:40 p.m. Carroll on Lynch’s disappearance: “I heard he did six great minutes. Some comedians make a career off that.”
