You never know who you're going to run into at the testosterone-laced intersection of mass media and football that is radio row. Still, while you should always expect the unexpected at the Super Bowl, few among us weren't surprised to find out that "your ideal" would be making an appearance.
Super Bowl XLVIII's most discussed headline isn't about the Xs or the Os.
It's not about the match-up between the league's best defense and its most prolific offense. It's not about a cornerback who thrust himself into the national spotlight two weeks ago, or the veteran one, on the other side of the field, looking for the championship that will complete a brilliant career.
What do you do when you're an NFL columnist who lost his cell phone somewhere in Manhattan while trying to cover Super Bowl XLVIII? You sit down with Armen Williams to talk about your lost phone, your thoughts on said Super Bowl, and the direction of the New York Giants.
The New York sports scene has plenty of fans in the national media. None, though, may be as fervent as ESPN's Linda Cohn. Thursday, the host of the podcast "Listen Closely to Linda Cohn" sat down with Armen Williams to discuss the Giants, the Knicks and the Rangers, as well as her thoughts on Peyton Manning's legacy and Super Bowl XLVIII.
You never know who you're going to run into down on Radio Row, and this morning, Armen Williams came across former New York Jets quarterback and current member of the Jets' radio broadcast - heard NFL Sundays on The Team - Ray Lucas.
