Super Bowl 48, which takes place on Sun., Feb. 2, 2014, at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, will feature the Denver Broncos taking on the Seattle Seahawks.
If you've been paying attention to life outside of football -- and we wouldn't blame you if you haven't been -- those two teams play in states (Colorado and Washington, respectively) that have legalized marijuana for recreational use.
Cue the funny from Stephen Colbert:
A bit from the video:
"What really pinches my pigskin is that both of these teams hail from states that have legalized marijuana for recreational use. Unlike other states which have legalized medical marijuana for recreational use. Nation, pot and football do not mix, they're like oil and water, or baseball and excitement. And once the NFL starts catering to these teams doobie toking fans, football will be ruined just like potheads ruined Laser Zeppelin. It used to be about the love of Laser. Before you know it, all the Super Bowl commercials are going to be for munchies and all of the ads are going to have freaky talking babies and animals. I say save it for the commercials at burning man, you hippies."
Oh God ...
