Online Company Taunts Wes Welker, Dropping Butterfinger Bars On Boston Streets

Days after the fact, New England Patriots quarterback Wes Welker is still taking heat for the dropped pass that led to the Pats' demise in Super Bowl XLVI. An online pawnbroker dumped hundreds of Butterfinger candy bars in Boston’s Copley Square on Tuesday with a note that read, "Thank you Wes Welker," according to the Associated Press.

Pawngo.com was given a citation from the city for commercial dumping.

Todd Hills, CEO of the company, said in a statement to the Boston Globe that he "thought Boston fans might at least get a laugh out of it." He added the company respects Welker and the Patriots.

Welker led the NFL with 122 receptions this year, but his season was marred when he dropped a crucial pass with four minutes left in Sunday night's loss to the New York Giants. The Pats lost the Super Bowl, 21-17.
