Super Bowl XLIX between the Patriots and Seahawks is probably going to be great. But we're sorry, NFL. There's absolutely no $&%*^#@ way it's going to be even a fraction as great as Marshawn Lynch and Rob Gronkowski's appearance on Conan last night.

It started off with Beast Mode and Gronk playing Mortal Combat X. But it also included them talking about their experiences with Super Mario Kart (who would have guessed that Beast Mode is a Toad guy?), them forcing Conan O'Brien to lie down in the fetal position and suck his thumb, and them teaching Conan how to grab his nuts to celebrate touchdowns. SO GOOD.

This > Super Bowl XLIX. No doubt about it.
