Trey Wingo has an encyclopedic memory of the Super Bowl

Trey Wingo has been getting more of a prominent role on ESPN over the couple of months following a contract extension during the summer. Earlier this week, Michael Smith quizzed him about the history of the Super Bowl, and Wingo proceeded to rattle off the score and MVP for every Super Bowl from 1 to 49.

Good, touchdown celebrations are stupid anyway

Outrage! What nerve the National Football League has to rob us of yet another super-awesome-fun-wicked football tradition! The NFL just won’t be the same without players having the freedom to dunk the ball over the goal posts following a touchdown. Wait, yes it will. I’ll admit that the NFL’s rulebook has grown obese.
