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 despicable New England Patriots, Marc Lampton laughed the loudest. The Seahawks’ gaffe handed the POPS PROPS V CHAMPIONSHIP to Lampton, who bested the rest of the record-78-entrant-field by 3 points. Longtime POPS PROPS competitor Brian Bushaw finished second, with 44 points to Lampton’s 47.

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!

Let’s take a closer look at the POPS PROPS V results, by the numbers!
