MOSCOW - It is no secret that Russian President Vladimir Putin is a great sports fan.
He has always said that his favorite Major League Baseball team is the Cincinnati Reds (no surprise there).
Putin has also commented that in football he likes the Washington Redskins even though there isn't a single native-American playing on the team or living anywhere in Russia.
The Russian leader was asked by Rufus Reno with Sports Balls Illustrated Daily who he was picking to win Super Bowl XLVIII.
Putin put down his bottle of Vodka and said that he likes the Denver Broncos by 7 points.
He commented that he plans to visit Colorado this summer and take in some of the nice, wonderful, Rocky Mountain marijuana air.
The Russian leader said that he has made a little bet with the head of Russia's Department of Computers, Edward Snowden.
Putin said that Snowden has picked the Seahawks. The leader of Russia said that if the Seahawks win he will give (Eddie) a gold-plated computer mouse and if the Broncos win then he (Snowden) promises to marry his gorgeous niece Nadia Olgavich before the first day of summer.
