In the NFC championship last week, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson 
threw a number of interceptions though the team won the game, a ticket 
to the Superbowl. I saw a picture on Facebook with him and a caption 
saying, "I don't always throw interceptions, but when I do, I go to the 
Superbowl" (from memory, I can no longer find the picture).

There is nothing original here as Wikipedia has this snowclone at 
According to that article, this meme comes from "The Most Interesting 
Man in the World" commercials started in 2006 for the beer Dos Equis:

I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis

The commercials are pretty funny and a compilation can be found at:
