Super Bowl could be super fun with new ‘refreshments’ in Colorado, Washington state

It is unfortunate that the Kansas City Chiefs didn’t make it through the playoffs to land in the Super Bowl.

The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks match-up on Feb. 2 no doubt will be a lively contest. But those two teams from those two states also will cause some to call the game the Toke’n Bowl, where beer no longer has to be enough.

That’s because both Colorado and Washington state in 2012 legalized marijuana. Fans watching the game in Colorado and Washington state can enjoy their newly legalized treat. Imagine the munchies they will consume especially at halftime.

Imagine the bets the governors of the two states could make. If the Chiefs were in the Super Bowl it would just be about barbecue.

People at the game, however, at the MetLife Stadium at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, N.J., will have to settle for the usual refreshments. Kansas City beer and barbecue would do just fine there.
