While Super Bowl XLIX provided plenty of on-field drama, a large portion of the news was generated after the game – including Seahawks coach Pete Carroll addressing his controversial goal-line call on The Today Show. Here we wrap up all the post-game happenings.
LEFT SHARK ATTACK

MARSHAWN LYNCH PICKUP LINES
Lastly, a University of Illinois-Chicago student, attempted, with some success, to use quotes from Marshawn Lynch’s news conference to pick up women on campus.
