EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Here at MetLife Stadium, everyone was abuzz with the Seahawks' first score of the game, a safety that was the fastest score in Super Bowl history.

On Twitter, everyone was abuzz with the news that Dallas Mavericks owner and general rich guy Mark Cuban turned $1 million into $20 million with a big bet on such an outcome.

Turns out, though, he was totally joking.

It's worth noting that it's spelled "sike" (right?). It's also worth noting that the actual prop value was more like 40:1 or 50:1 in Vegas.

The larger point is that Cuban can joke about betting $1 million on a Super Bowl prop bet and everyone will believe it. That's how much money he has.
