Peyton Manning reacts after his birdie putt on the 11th hole at Pebble Beach is picked off by a seagull….
(NYDN) A Super Bowl win always provides an emotional lift to the winning fans.
But thanks to the recent legalization of marijuana, many Seattle Seahawks fans in Washington state experienced a physical lift as well as they watched while high during the game.
Alcohol and junk food consumption are always at peak levels on Super Bowl Sunday, but fans watching the Stoner Bowl — which featured the only NFL teams from the two states that legalized marijuana — had an extra vice to partake in if they so desired.
The times, they are a changin’
I’ve mentioned often how much of a big sports fan I am. But I can’t imagine putting a gun to my neighbor’s head to help pay a billionaire so that I can enjoy my hobby. I hope L.A. gets no more new stadiums or upgrades, so long as said stadiums or upgrades are paid for by taxpayers.
If the Seahawks pull out the win, I hope they let Marshawn Lynch cruise around MetLife Stadium, ghost riding the injury cart.
“I like to call it a one-two punch. Me and Andrew [Luck], we’ve been around each other for quite a while now leading up from the Heisman to the draft and training and stuff. Andrew’s a good guy, just meeting him and his family, just knowing what type of person he is and just knowing that we’re going to grow together, how young we are, we going to be here for a while. We’re not planning on going nowhere. We plan to be here, we plan to grow and we plan to win a lot of games.”
