When the Seattle Seahawks failed to give the ball to Marshawn Lynch in the waning moments of Super Bowl XLIX, thereby gift-wrapping the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the New England Patriots, no one could catch Marc Lampton. The POPS PROPS V Champion tallied 47 points and bested the rest of the 78-entrant-field by three points. Brian Bushaw finished second with 44 points, while four competitors tied for third with 42 points.

A FEW OBSERVATIONS

* What did John Legend wear when he sang America The Beautiful before Super Bowl XLIX? Some sort of leather jacket/windbreaker over some sort of t-shirt! Who among the 78 POPS PROPS V contestants correctly guessed that he would be wearing that jacket? Not a single entrant!!

* How many POPS PROPS V contestants predicted that there would be more than 7 1/2 total punts in Super Bowl XLIX? 39! How many predicted that there would be fewer than 7 1/2 total punts? 39! That’s right! The field was split, there were 10 punts during the game and the over-pick won!
