In the spirit of rival mayors betting local foods before a big football game, the San Francisco Giants and Seattle Mariners had a "Twitter spat" heading up to the NFC Championship game Sunday. The spirited exchanges led to the Giants betting that their mascot, Lou Seal, would suck down a giant jar of Skittlesthe official fuel of Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch — if the San Francisco 49ers lost.

And after the Seahawks took care of business against the Niners, it was time for Lou to pay up. So s(he) did. Man, Colin Kaepernick picked a fine time to throw that pick in the end zone, didn't he, Lou Seal? Taste the rainbow! Taste it!
