Online Pawnbroker Pulls Stunt Over Welker’s Super Bowl Drop

Sounds like people are still having fun with with Patriots receivers Wes Welker huge fourth quarter drop that helped the Giants win the Super Bowl.

An online pawnbroker dumped hundreds of Butterfinger candy bars in Boston’s Copley Square on Tuesday with a note: “Thank you Wes Welker.”

The tongue-in-cheek stunt by Pawngo.com drew takers for the candy and a citation from the city for commercial dumping.

Pawngo CEO Todd Hills says in a statement to The Boston Globe the Denver- and Chicago-based company “thought Boston fans might at least get a laugh out of it.” He says the company respects Welker and the Patriots.

Welker led the NFL with 122 receptions but dropped a slightly off-target pass from quarterback Tom Brady with about four minutes left Sunday night. The Giants won 21-17.
