Hey Peyton Manning, what the hell was that all about?!
Here’s a recap of Super Bowl XLVIII:
Seattle beat the effing [expletive] out of Denver. The end.
I won’t leave you guys hanging. Here are some of my thoughts about Sunday and the game.
The most overblown narrative since the NFL announced that New Jersey would be hosting Super Bowl XLVIII. “OMG!!! What if it’s super cold outside during a football game!” God forbid. People start yapping about the weather when they have nothing else to talk about. It’s such a “Captain Obvious” topic.
If you manned a grill yesterday, kudos to you. I know about the struggle. The struggle was real.

America either loves or hates Richard Sherman. Personally, I like Sherman. He’s a hell of a football player and I can’t knock a guy for talking trash. Here are the three dumbest things I saw or heard about Sherman on Sunday:
“The Karma” angle about Sherman’s injured ankle. Just in case you need more evidence that people are stupid, checkout Deadspin’s post on “Sherman injured by Karma“.
“Sherman’s so cocky!” Well, duh. He’s a professional athlete, what did you think was going to happen? You might want to sit down for this, but Michael Jordan, Michael Irving, Wilt Chamberlin, plus a long list of other athletes all have/had egos. It comes with the territory. If an outspoken athlete bothers you, then you might want to watch Antique Roadshow instead of professional sports.
“Ugh, why is he talking (Sherman), he’s so dumb!” Trying to fix stupidity is mentally exhausting. So, I’m going to stop right here.
Winners and Losers
Sean Pendergast wrote a nice post on Super Bowl Winners and Losers. Here are a couple more.
Winner: Gallery Furniture and their customers. Mattress Mack didn’t lose $7 million dollars, it was money well spent. He basically just ran a $7 million dollar commercial that people will talk about for years. Mattress Mack won.
Loser: Twitter users. We got trolled by Mark Cuban and Floyd Mayweather. Mark Cuban didn’t win $20 million and Floyd Mayweather didn’t lose $10 million.
I HAD SAFETY ON THE FIRST PLAY IN VEGAS !!!!!!!!!! 1mm to 1.. $20mm BABY. #Unbelievable

Seattle turned into West Virginia moments after the game ended. Burning mattresses and streaking through the streets. You can’t really blame them.
