Damon Weaver may only be 11 years old, but he has already proven himself as a reporter, scoring interviews with everyone from Oprah to President Obama. So it's likely his editors will forgive him just this once. During Super Bowl media day in Miami, Weaver could not get quarterback Peyton Manning's attention because the other reporters were too tall and too loud.
