NEWARK, New Jersey (Reuters) - Mike Adams is rethinking his celebration plans if the Denver Broncos win Sunday's Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks in New Jersey.

Adams was so excited when his team booked a place in the first Super Bowl to be played in his home state that he vowed to walk back to his old neighborhood if his team won the title.

Not only that, the 32-year-old said he would complete the 10-mile (16 kilometer) hike to Paterson wearing his Broncos football uniform, complete with pads and cleats.

"It was the excitement after beating the Patriots (to reach the Super Bowl)," he told reporters during Tuesday's media day, an annual event that kicks off of Super Bowl week.

"I was just thinking, if I go to the Super Bowl, I'm walking home. I'm keeping my equipment on and I'm walking home.

"That's how it started. It seems like I have to prove you guys right, huh?"

But when pressed about whether he really intended to walk all that way after the game, in the cold of winter, he admitted he was having second thoughts.

"Maybe, maybe not," he said. "I'll tell you what, I won't be able to walk home in my cleats. I need some nice warm walking shoes."   Continued...
