WTF Superbowl 50
I think this is going to go down as the Superbowl of WTF.
Ok, it’s established that I don’t “like” sports especially, but that doesn’t stop me from watching “The Big Game” on principle. After all you don’t have to care about the teams to appreciate the event. There is always plenty to enjoy and ridicule besides the football game anyway. (Incidentally I had to actually do research for some of this info.)
There’s always controversy over the Superbowl.
With all of the betting involved it creates controversy by itself.
Cam Newton could probably use a Whataburger right now
But he might turn away from it…

-Peyton Drinking Budweiser
There was probably a good amount of betting going on about whether or not Peyton Manning would retire after this season. Some are saying he said yes without actually saying yes.
Twice in post game interviews Peyton Manning says he’s going to drink a lot of Budweiser and think about whether or not to retire. NFL rules forbid any active player from endorsing any alcoholic product. Conspiracy theorists say this is Peyton secretly telling the world he is retiring, and endorsing Budweiser, since he can’t do that as an active player.
And Now.. Commercials
To some people the Superbowl Commercials are more important than the game.

Amazon Echo with Alec Baldwin
Coca-Cola with Ant-Man and Hulk
- Snickers with Willem Dafoe
- T-mobile with Steve Harvey
