It's common practice that athletes step things up a few notches when they're making a run for a new contract. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco did as much as he could have possibly done to make sure his new contract features a few extra zeroes. The Ravens quarterback finished his brilliant postseason with 11 touchdown passes and no interceptions, completing 73 of 126 for 1,140 yards. Oh, and he won a Vince Lombardi trophy and took home Super Bowl MVP honors. He also treated CBS viewers to a solid f-bomb while celebrating Baltimore's 34-31 victory.
It was a rough night for Vegas. The books took a bath with both the Ravens and over coming in. Baltimore's intentional safety at the end of the game didn't help (although, I know it brought a smile to my friend PT's face). Meanwhile, Stock Lemon Blog has a recap of ALL the prop bet results from Super Bowl XLVII.
