Aqib Talib steals the show after Super Bowl 50

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Surrounded at the podium by his three adorable little children, Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib was asked if his offspring could possibly grasp what their father just accomplished.

"You all understand what just happened?" Talib asked his kids.

"Yeah," said his daughter of Denver's 24-10 win over the Panthers in Super Bowl 50.

"What just happened?" Talib asked. "Tell 'em in the mic."

"We just made world history," she said.

"Hey!" screamed Talib. "We just made world history, man. We won Super Bowl 50! The anniversary game."

When a reporter tried to bring down the moment by asking about Talib's costly first-half personal fouls, he wouldn't bite.

"Oh, it was all good. B.S. flags, one of them was on our sideline, the guy was talking on our sideline. One I just did on purpose, you know, I just had to show him," Talib said. "It's probably going to be a fine, but hey, we're world champs."

Asked what it's like to share this night with his family, Talib just shook his head.

"It's wonderful, man. There's no better feeling in the world. My whole family here, they're right behind you," Talib said, pointing out his wife in the crowd. "My baby back there, what's up, baby? You looking real gorgeous today, baby. We gonna get it in tonight!"

From there, Talib marched into the locker room and went utterly nuts. My man Dan Hanzus captured the video:

It's going to be a great offseason in the Talib house.
