Super Bowl XLVIII LOL

Just whine, baby: The Seattle Seahawks defeated the San Francisco 49ers to advance to the Super Bowl.

Fans who attended the game may still hear a ringing in their ears, not because of crowd noise but from the incessant whine from 49ers’ head coach Jim Harbaugh.

You mad, bro? Moments after batting down a pass that saved the game for Seattle, Seahawk cornerback Richard Sherman drew a flag for unsportsmanlike conduct for making a choking gesture toward a 49er player.

Sherman explained he actually was choking; an errant Skittle flew from Marshawn Lynch’s hand and into Sherman’s gaping mouth when both jumped up in celebration.

Buzz Bowl: The governors of Washington and California made a wager before the game, with each betting a case of their state’s best wine. And the mayors of Seattle and San Francisco made a similar bet for chocolate and ice cream.

With the Denver Broncos and the Seahawks in the Super Bowl, and both states having legalized pot, look for a new wager: three ounces of Colorado’s best Blue Berry Kush against a plate of pot-infused brownies.
