In the run-up to Sunday's Super Bowl, we've posted about some of the friction caused by the match-up between the Broncos and the Seahawks, including the firing of a Tacoma teen after he wore a Demaryius Thomas jersey to work and a Washington senator's rude tweet about the Barrel Man. Now, Miles, the Broncos' mascot, and Blitz, his Seahawks counterpart, are getting into it, too, in a new ESPN commercial. Neither behave in an especially mature manner in the spot, but in our completely unbiased opinion, Blitz started it! Check out the amusing clip below.
