As we noted in a February 1 post entitled TOP 20 TWEETS FROM BRONCOS FANS WHO REALLY THINK DENVER WILL WIN SUPER BOWL, those betting on Super Bowl 50 overwhelmingly favored the Carolina Panthers to kick the ass of your Denver Broncos.
Things worked out differently, however — and as a result, a lot of people lost a lot of money. Or a lot of pride. Or a lot of both.
Below, check out our twenty favorite tweets about people who no doubt regret betting on Cam Newton and Carolina.
