If only the power had dropped out during Joe Flacco’s post-game celebration.
The Ravens quarterback threw out an enthusiastic f-bomb while enjoying his team’s Super Bowl victory.
“This is f–king awesome!” the Super Bowl MVP exclaimed while hugging teammate Marshal Yanda after the game.
The expletive was captured by a nearby microphone and aired live on CBS, marking the latest obscenity to find its way onto the air during the most-watched telecast of the year. Usually such mishaps are associated with the game’s halftime show, but Beyonce’s showcase went off without a hitch (and her top somehow remained locked in place). Last year MIA made headlines for flipping off the camera and previously, of course, Janet Jackson had her 2004 wardrobe malfunction.
Flacco will appear on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman on Monday night, marking the ninth consecutive year that a Super Bowl-winning quarterback has appeared on the program after winning the championship.
