New England Patriots receiver Wes Welker's 4th quarter drop in the Super Bowl helped seal his team's fate and propel the New York Giants to a win. In typical fashion, New York sports fans have no intention of letting him forget about the gaffe either. A pawn shop stuck it to Welker by dropping 900 pounds of Butterfinger candy bars in Copley Square Tuesday morning. At least Bostonians will get some free candy to go with their misery. Check it!
Via Steve Weatherford on the ride to the Meadowlands to celebrate a New York Giants victory in New Jersey: "Only a Super Bowl MVP can rock a mullet like this one." Woah, Steve, not going to go with an overbite and schnoz tweet for good measure? Kinda disappointed in you. (@Weatherford5)
Of course we won't rest this week until we finally nail down a name to the guy - with a black eye - at Saturday's Maxim Super Bowl party who was passed out on a bench inside the Indiana State Fairgrounds building. Team Busted Coverage/Coed Magazine was about 15 minutes from leaving the superhero-themed boozefest when this guy stole our hearts. The perfect head positioning. By himself. Black eye. JUMP!
And there you have it straight from the fingers of Tim Tebow's agent, Angel Gonzalez. Who is this Angel character? He's the dude who, last summer, tweeted out the shot of Tebow's arms while swinging a golf club. Gonzalez is so inner circle that he can officially report today that Baby Jesus won't be spending his off-season perfecting the pasodoble. You can shut down the gossip engine, Good Morning America.

'Bradying' as defined by Busted Coverage: the act of being in the seated position, shoulders at 80-degree angle with the head slouching as if a WR just dropped another catch and you can't play WR, too. Right hand in a fist while left hand acts as the Chipotle burrito shell. Feet perfectly at 90-degree angle. Forearms on thighs. And with that, America has its new rage - Bradying. JUMP!
Via: Country singer Randy Travis was arrested in Sanger Monday morning on a charge of suspicion of public intoxication. According to Sanger police, an officer noticed a 1998 black Pontiac parked in front of the First Baptist Church of Sanger early Monday morning and, thinking that was unusual, stopped to talk to the driver. Yes, Randy was drunk & police took him to the station to sober up. The big news: He was driving a '98 Pontiac. Really? That's how Randy's rolling these days?
Extra host Maria Menounos looks fantastic. As you might imagine, she looks even more fantastic in a bikini. Maybe the best thing to come out of the New York Giants winning the Super Bowl was the fact Menounos lost a bet to colleague A.J. Calloway. The die-hard New England Patriots fan had to wear a bikini on Extra to pay off the wager. We tip our hat to you, Calloway. We'll tip something else to Menounos and her rock-hard abs. JUMP!
Will Ferrell is awesome, so you know the Super Bowl commercial he did for Old Milwaukee is awesome. Unfortunately, no one saw it. That is, unless you live in the North Platte, Nebraska area. That's the only market Ferrell's commercial aired in. It's not the first time Old Milwaukee has pulled such a stunt with Ferrell, but fear not. We've got the commercial right here for you in all it's unaired glory. Check it!
Someone should probably remind this moron he didn't just win the Super Bowl. How quickly did the Patriots put Super Bowl XLVI behind them? Oh, by 11 or so last night when the Patriots post-Super Bowl party at Victory Field (3-wood from Lucas Oil) where LMFAO, Earth, Wind & Fire, Maroon 5 and Steven Tyler performed. The big news from the party? Rob Gronkowski got shirtless during the LMFAO set. JUMP!
What's the best part of a Maxim Super Bowl party? Um, the ladies followed closely by the unlimited quantities of Patrón poured by cute chick bartenders. Saturday's superhero-themed party at the Indiana State Fairgrounds might not have attracted as many big time celebrity names as Maxim had hoped, but the scene inside was just fine thanks to ladies who brought their 'A' games & an insane special set from Ludacris. Of course we took a camera into the party. JUMP!
It was supposed to be a scenario where, already stripping in Boston for the weekend, porn star Bibi Jones goes balls to the walls during the Super Bowl while her meal ticket, Rob Gronkowski, makes the Hail Mary catch to win XLVI. Jones, feeling that a Super Bowl victory party with Gronk was in the books, started tweeting NSFW shots during halftime. Then her feed went silent. Nothing. 13 hours of silence. What a bad night for Gronk, Jones & Pats Nation. JUMP!
Those rascals from The Insider, knowing a viral sensation when they record one, posted a video early this morning featuring an angry Gisele walking through Lucas Oil Stadium where she was heckled by fans. One guy even lobbed an "Eli owns your husband," volley at the Brazilian model. That led to: "My husband can not f****ing throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times." Watch it HERE.
What will sports historians researching Super Bowl XLVI 100 years from now takeaway from last night's game? If you're in New York, it'll be about Eli Manning holding his 2nd Lombardi. As for Boston/New England researchers, they'll find a hunched over Tom Brady after his 2nd loss to the Giants via an amazing 4th quarter of football. Our newspaper front-page winner this morning: the West Lafayette/Lafayette, Ind. Journal & Courier. JUMP!
Via: Police said it all started with an argument at a home near the intersection of U.S. 17/92 and State Road 434 in Longwood Sunday afternoon. Police said the gunman shot 25-year-old Donnie Shepard in the back, and then ran off. Police said a second man also ran out of the apartment with him. Investigators told WFTV the suspect is a black male. He is described as 300 pounds and taller than six feet. Wait? Before the game even started? Afternoon?
This isn't just a bet that there would be a safety, or defensive touchdown, in the Super Bowl. It's 1st score of the game. Pretty much throwing away $1k 100 out of 100 times, right Collinsworth? No word on how much the guy lost on XLVI, but we're guessing he walked away with enough money to tip the valet at MGM. As for Vegas books as a whole, the LVRJ reports bookies won "a ham sandwich" yesterday. In other words, it was a wash. Let's get rolling!
Everyone knows the best part of the Superbowl are the commercials. Well here are the top 5 commercials of Super Bowl 46. I'm no Darren Rovell so I have no idea it costs per second to get your Super Bowl ad up but I know it's a lot. There were a lot of good commercials that we had to leave out but here is out top 5 picks for this game. Video after the JUMP!
