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 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Most_Interesting_Man_in_the_World. 
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:
