The 49ers looked like they might pull off an incredible last-second triumph, but then Colin Kaepernick decided to test the best cornerback in the game. And so the Seahawks are bound for Super Bowl XLVIII.
Yup, it’s a contest of very polite and media-friendly quarterbacks representing states that have legal weed. Just proof that if your state legalizes marijuana, you’re going to the Super Bowl. It’s science. It’s also the first time since 2009 that both no. 1 seeds will meet in the Super Bowl. That time also pitted Peyton Manning against a franchise that had yet to win a Super Bowl.
On the bright side, it’s two weeks of Marshawn Lynch barely avoiding his contempt for the media. And Richard Sherman doing pro wrestling shoots like he did postgame with Erin Andrews.
In the meantime, let’s hope Seahawks fans making the trip to New York learn to be slightly less dickish than the ones in CenturyLink Field.
Seahawks fans threw food at Bowman on his way out.
