Butterfingers stunt makes light of Welker's drop in Super Bowl
A pawnbroker dumped hundreds of Butterfingers in Boston's Copley Square
An accompanying note read, "Thank you Wes Welker" in a tongue-in-cheek stunt
The company "thought Boston fans might at least get a laugh out of it"
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.
