And now, with some...less controversial material...

Via Yahoo! sports comes the heartwarming story of Jona Rechnitz, who bet $1,000 last night that the first score of Super Bowl XLVI would be a safety, a gamble that carried 50-to-1 odds. He, of course, walked away with $50,000. (Here's a photo of the ticket.) Not bad. So, Brady at least helped someone out last night. (Ducks.)

Yes, this story originated on The Big Lead, but we've got a few issues with them right now, so go to Yahoo! Tell them the hack sent you.
