Johnny Manziel Finds New Way To Abuse A Microsoft Surface
Microsoft probably thought that they had scored big when they landed the gig as the official tablet of the NFL. It is, after all, one of the most high-profile sports leagues in the world with tens of millions of viewers every week during the season.
As it turns out though, those viewers are not seeing their favorite players and coaches turning to their beloved tablet on the sideline to draw up their latest plays. In fact, when Microsoft's target demographic isn't listening to the announcers mistakenly refer to it as an iPad, they are watching the Surface be abused, thrown, cracked, tossed aside and generally brutalized.
NFL players treat the Surface with all the care and consideration of a karate Sensei with a piece of plywood.
That's why it was no surprise when the cameras panned over to Johnny Manziel, Official Frat Bro of the NFL, using the official tablet of the NFL as a tool for self-punishment after throwing an interception in the Browns game against the 49ers on Sunday afternoon.
Here he is, using the Surface...to smack himself in the head like a goddamned caveman.
Those poor people over at Microsoft have to sit back and watch their sleek, beautiful piece of incredibly impressive technology get treated like a glorified clipboard. If they weren't all geniuses that make an obscene amount of money to work obsessively in a creative environment for one of the most successful companies on the planet, I'd feel kinda bad for them.
Also, if you NFL guys really don't need those tablets, which it appears you most definitely do not, I'll totally take one. Just saying.
