Congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks. My daughter’s favorite NFL team are World Champions! Now on to a post-Super-Bowl best (and worst) of the week.

Biggest Blowout.Breaking Madden: The Super Bowl in which the machine bleeds to death” by Jon Bois at SB Nation.

For this, the season finale of Breaking Madden, there will be bitter cold and heavy snowfall. There will also be, Lord willing, the most one-sided result in the history of sports. In the greatest American football rout of historical record, Georgia Tech beat Cumberland College, 222-0. I want to multiply that. I want a thousand points in one game.

This is how we’re going to try.

The Match Up?
