The Super Bowl ended with a humiliating defeat for Peyton Manning and his merry gang of Broncos. The Seattle Seahawks shredded Denver 43-8 in the second-most-lopsided Super Bowl ever.
Seattle’s first NFL championship was good news for Reagan, who won $50 betting on the Seattle Angry Birds (although it did help that the other person picked New England… ). But Denver’s defeat was bad news for Peyton Manning who was recently named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player for the fifth time.
“To finish this way is very disappointing,” Manning said. “It’s a bitter pill to swallow.”
Despite winning MVP this season, breaking the single-season passing records with 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns, and winning Offensive Player of the Year, Manning will have a hard time living this one down.
In other Super Bowl news, rumours swirled that boxer Floyd Mayweather bet $10.4 million on the Broncos. Turns out, not even Floyd Mayweather is dumb enough to do that:
“Somebody lied to you all,” Mayweather tweeted. “If I was going to bet, I would have bet on the Seattle Seahawks. I’m the best defensive fighter, it’s only right to go with the best defensive team.”
“I did NOT bet $10 million on the Broncos. As a matter of fact, I didn’t bet at all. I can’t control what rumors that are put out there. … The only thing I would be $10 million on is myself.”
Joe Namath’s ridiculous fur coat also got peole talking at the big game. The Hall of Fame Quarterback made an appearance for the coin toss wearing an oversized fur coat reminiscent of his younger days. Namath f*cked up the coin toss by throwing the coin in the air before Seattle had a chance to call heads or tails, BUT his coat did prompt an interesting of edition of who wore it better: IKEA Monkey vs. Joe Namath
Enough about the Super Bowl – it’s time to get to the most important sporting event of the season. No, not the Olympics – the Kitten Bowl!!!
The first ever Kitten Bowl aired on Sunday afternoon to a crowd of screaming crazy cat ladies. The North Shore Bengals ended up taking home the first ever Kitten Bowl championship with a down-to-the-wire 24-20 victory over the Cedar Cove Cougars. Viewers were allowed to vote for the MVK (Most Valuable Kitten) and it ended in a tie between Snowball and Ferrell Owens. Congrats on your first Su-purrrrr Bowl guys!
