Jimmy Fallon’s Superlatives segment on The Tonight Show is one of our favorites, and he’s gone after sports stars on occasion. On Wednesday’s show, he stuck superlatives onto members of the Seahawks and 49ers, who faced off on NBC Thursday night. The results were predictably hilarious. Poor, poor Colin Kaepernick. First he gets compared to a chain-smoking mall elf, then he...

TCU Crushes Texas To Set Up An 11-1 Season, And It Feels Like 2011 Again
