A man traipsing around Monday's Super Bowl opening night in a full-length gown declaring himself "The Empress of Austria, Elizabeth I" was the most outrageous guest at what was a rather tame media night compared to the circus it has been in the past. The Empress, otherwise known as Julian Kurzwernhart, who said he'd been covering the Super Bowl for a television station in Austria for the past six years, spent more time being interviewed in his crazy getup than actually conducting interviews with the players from the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots.The event, which is the first availability with the teams during Super Bowl week, was held at Minute Maid Park, where the Houston Astros play.Houston Astros pitcher Lance McCullers asked questions recorded by the team's social media department.Wiltjer, who is a huge NFL fan, had a little fun with some of his questions.
