NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Where’s Waldo?

Well, right there in the middle of a scrum of more than 6,000 journalists, costumed characters, celebrities and attention-seekers.

Yep, sounds like Super Bowl media day.

The NFL held its annual circuslike event Tuesday, and the site of this one featuring the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks was the Prudential Center - a hockey arena that normally serves as the home of the NHL’s New Jersey Devils.

“It’s a lot of people that don’t have much to do, I don’t know,” Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson said with a smile. “All the attention over one game, sometimes it can be overwhelming. I’m just excited to be here enjoying the process and I just can’t wait until Sunday.”

But first, there was the spectacle of media day to get through.

TV3 Denmark reporter Tommy Kjaersgaard wore a red-and-white striped shirt, round spectacle frames and blue pants in costume as the titular character of the “Where’s Waldo?” franchise of children’s books.

Internet star Lil Terrio was there, too, and he danced with cheerleaders. There was an Austrian man dressed as Mozart, and another in a superhero costume. Regis Philbin, singer Michelle Williams and actor-comedian Nick Cannon also showed up.

“It’s crazy,” Denver guard Zane Beadles said. “This is quite the spectacle. I have never been a part of anything like this before with all these people, but it’s very fun and a very exciting time.”

Here’s a quick look at a few of the Super Bowl story lines from Tuesday:

STRANGE QUESTIONS: When it comes to Super Bowl media day, pretty much anything goes.

From marriage proposals to favorite foods, players have heard it all over the years. Seattle defensive lineman was asked by a woman for a kiss - but said no. Seahawks center Max Unger was asked by a man to feel his bushy beard - and let him.

Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate captured all the wackiness by wearing a Google Glass and a Go Pro camera on his hat to show his family. Because, let’s face it: Until you experience media day yourself, you can’t believe all the hijinks.

“This is pretty crazy, man. Pretty crazy,” Broncos defensive end Malik Jackson said. “I saw Waldo. I saw the superhero.”

MR. CHATTY: Marshawn Lynch kept his media day appearance short and sweet.
