We know Deion Branch loves to milk cows but it’s even odder to imagine his pride in signing a new deal with the Seattle King Krabs.

Bruce Irvin of the Seattle Seahawks was being interviewed in his NFL locker room and thought he was a Washington Redskin instead of a Seattle Seahawk. Irvin responded with “I’m f#%ked up man.
