It wasn't five minutes into Knowshon Moreno's shift behind a podium during the latest edition of Super Bowl Media Day when the Denver Broncos running back was struck by one of those This Is Your Life moments that keep popping up this week.

Moreno's high school coach, Steve Antonucci, was embedded with the pack of journalists.

Sure enough, he fired off a question about the "gold grandma slippers" — house shoes that belonged to Moreno's grandmother, Mildred McQueen — which Moreno once put on in a rush and wore to a game.

You see, star players like Moreno, who led Middletown (N.J.) South High to three consecutive state titles, can get away with such footwear.
