To the victor go the spoils ... just ask Russell Wilson, who's sitting courtside at the Brooklyn Nets game with Beyonce and Jay Z.
Peyton Manning's whereabouts are currently unknown.
Statewide Porn Binge
After Super Bowl Defeat
2/3/2014 1:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Nothing cures the agony of defeat like furious masturbation -- at least that's how Broncos Nation decided to deal with its grief last night ... after losing the Super Bowl 43-8.
XXX giant PornHub.com just released some fascinating stats from last night's porn viewership on its website -- showing overall viewership was down 32% during the big game ... down even more in Denver (51%) and Seattle (61%). Makes sense.
The tide turns around the halftime mark (EST) ... when most of the audience bailed on the game ... but things got even more interesting after the final score.
While porn viewing numbers in Seattle and Washington dropped below average in the wake of their massive victory -- presumably because everyone was out partying -- the numbers in Denver and Colorado surged to 10.8% and 7.6% above average, respectively.
So far, no word from Kleenex or Vaseline.
Jon Jones & GSP
At Super Bowl Party
2/3/2014 12:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Was Jon "Bones" Jones trying to DUCK Georges St-Pierre at the Super Bowl post-game bash in NYC last night??? Because it sure as hell looked that way in this clip.
It all went down outside Marquee nightclub ... GSP has no idea he's standing 3 ft. away from his fellow UFC superstar until our camera guy points him out.
What ensues is awkward, funny and confusing ... all at the same time.
It seems "Bones" was trying to signal our photog NOT to alert St-Pierre to his presence ... but our guy didn't get the hint and gave JJ up.
Ya gotta watch the clip -- either way, it's pretty hilarious ... and "Bones" deserves an Oscar.
Diddy & Ashanti
Fur-Ballin' For Late Night Grub Run
2/3/2014 11:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Diddy was clearly overdressed during a pre-Super Bowl visit to a landmark greasy spoon in Harlem.
We're told Diddy -- and his 15-person entourage that included Ashanti and French Montana -- rolled up at around 3 am to a famous outdoor food stand called O'fishole Sea Food -- long known in the hood by its previous name -- Willie's Burgers.
After ordering at the walk-up window -- 5 orders of cheeseburgers with fries and 3 fish and chips -- we're told the group created quite the spectacle as they sat on a brick wall and chowed down.
Ashanti left a $100 tip ... on a $40 bill.
The manager tells TMZ, "Coming here is the hood thing to do."
The decent thing to do ... stop wearing fur.
Fan Wins $25K Over Big Bet
For the Second Time
2/3/2014 11:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lightening just struck twice ... a guy who won $50K on the 2012 Superbowl just did it again ... by placing the same exact bet.
Jona Rechnitz -- a successful NYC real estate mogul -- plunked down $500 ... betting the first scoring play in Super Bowl XLVIII would be a Seattle safety. The $500 turned into $25,000 -- we'll do the math for you ... 50/1 odds.
It's all the more impressive because 2 years ago Jona made the same type of bet -- and when the Giants scored a safety Jona walked away with $50K ... and gave it ALL to charity.
Jona tells us ... he's donating this year's winnings to the Simon Wiesenthal Center and to the Stewart J. Rahr Foundation.
Jona's chose the Wisenthal because it promotes tolerance and Rahr because its reach goes way beyond athletes and celebs, saying "[he] changes the lives of millions of people everyday."
You might want to fly on the plane Jona takes.
After Super Bowl

Call her Bouncé ... because Queen B advertised more breast last night than Popeyes.
Beyoncé was showing off the girls at Hennessy's Super Bowl afterparty in NYC, wearing a v-neck t-shirt that was so deep it was poetic. She and the twins got their groove on while Nas and Kelly Rowland performed on stage.
Proud husband Jay Z was there too ... but we all know what the real attraction was.
Beyonce's boobs: easily the most exciting thing that happened in New York last night.
Bankrupt Warren Sapp
I Didn't REALLY Make That $100k Bet with Rick Ross
2/3/2014 10:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Let the backpedaling begin ... 'cause Warren Sapp is now saying he NEVER made a $100,000 bet with rap mogul Rick Ross ... despite strong video evidence to the contrary.
Sapp just went on Twitter and pleaded his case ... saying "just FYI for you clowns, Rick Ross don't even know my Phone # lets alone made a bet of 100k! Sounded Good #Not."
He continued, "I only bet on two things, sure things & my abilities, because the only thing I was ever sure of was my abilities #1stBallot."
Here's the problem ... the two made the bet ON STAGE at a nightclub in NYC ... and then Rick clarified the terms of the wager ON CAMERA (TMZ Sports has the footage).
Plus, they TWEETED about the bet ... with Warren seemingly acknowledging that it was on.
But, as you know, Sapp -- who filed for bankruptcy in 2012 -- took the Denver Broncos ... and they LOST.
As Aaron Rodgers now knows, you shouldn't make bets you don't expect to keep.
Wonder how Ross feels about the situation.
WWE Superstar Ryback
2/3/2014 9:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
WWE Superstar Ryback took his catchphrase "Feed Me More" to the next level during the halftime of the Super Bowl ... by devouring the competition in a local wing eating contest.
Ryback posted video of the competition during yesterday's game ... and based on the footage, "The Big Guy" was clearly hungry -- 'cause he annihilated poultry like the Chinese in a Bird Flu scare.
The best part ... ya gotta watch Ryback's celebration in the restaurant after his commanding victory.
Fur Coat Was Last-Minute Purchase
2/3/2014 7:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Joe Namath's show-stopping fur coat was a last-minute purchase that he decided he "HAD" to have after seeing it at a fur store just days before the Super Bowl ... TMZ Sports has learned.
Turns out, Namath picked up the coat on Wednesday from Marc Kaufman Furs in NYC.
We spoke with Kaufman himself, who told us Joe came into the store with his daughter and was on a mission to find the perfect fancy coat for the Super Bowl coin flip.
That's when Joe noticed a white stunner on one of the racks -- which was comprised of a coyote-base mixed with some white fox.
We're told Joe said, "This is perfect for me" ... and decided he had to have it.
Kaufman says the coat ran Joe a cool $3,000.
And get this ... Kaufman says Namath's fashion statement has been huge for business -- "My phone hasn't stopped ringing."
Suck It Broncos
I Got Into Nightclub and You Didn't
2/3/2014 6:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Drake was like Moses last night after the Super Bowl in NYC -- walking into Marquee nightclub like the parting of the Red Sea.
The rapper walked in effortlessly as members of the Seahawks partied inside. As TMZ Sports reported ... Broncos star Von Miller was not as lucky, being unceremoniously turned away.
The video of Miller's thwarted entrance is painful to watch ... kind of like the game.
Denver Broncos Superstar
REJECTED From NYC Nightclub
Where Seahawks Partied
2/3/2014 6:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Denver Broncos superstar Von Miller learned the hard way ... no one wants to party with the losers ... 'cause after the game, he was REJCTED from a nightclub where the Seahawks celebrated their big win ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.
It all went down at Marquee in NYC ... where stars like James Carpenter, Sidney Rice and a bunch of other Seattle players were welcomed inside with open arms.
But when Von got to the front door ... suddenly, the bouncer explained the club had reached capacity ... and the Broncos linebacker was turned away.
It was sad ... but hey ... as Kurtis Blow would say ... "these are the breaks."

I Don't Wanna Talk About the Bet!
2/3/2014 5:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
After making one of the worst financial decisions of his life -- and losing a $100k bet to Rick Ross -- Warren Sapp mustered up the energy to hit the NYC clubs last night ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.
Sapp hit up Marquee nightclub in NYC ... where the Seahawks partied after their big Super Bowl win -- and despite losing $100,000, he seemed to be in a pretty good mood.
TMZ Sports broke the story ... Sapp made the bet with the rap mogul earlier this weekend ... and the terms of the bet were all captured on video.
No word on how Sapp plans to pay up ... considering he filed for bankruptcy back in 2012, and was in such dire straights, his Nike shoe collection was seized and auctioned off to pay back his creditors.
Is Not Happy Right Now
2/2/2014 5:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Yeah ... that $100,000 bet was a bad idea.
We broke the story ... Sapp -- who filed for bankruptcy back in 2012 -- made a $100k Super Bowl bet with rap mogul Rick Ross. The bet was captured on video ... so it's gonna be hard for Sapp to back out.
Sapp took the Broncos. Ross took the Seahawks.
Warren's gonna have to find a way to come up with $100k, stat ... 'cause Rick doesn't seem like the kinda guy you wanna owe money to.
Just sayin' ...
