Can you imagine the marketing tsunami that will continue over the next few years over Johnny Football? Just the merchandise alone, wow! It’s a shame he won’t personally be able to capitalize on it for a few years.
I woke up this morning certain that my inbox would be filled with people talking about Johnny Manziel’s 516 total yards from scrimmage in last night’s Cotton Bowl vs. Oklahoma. While there were a few mentions of the topic, the majority of you seem to want to discuss Erin Andrews and her sexy librarian look. (Well FOX, at least you know people watched the broadcast.)
I kinda sensed the attraction to the topic during the game as I saw a number of informal polls taken on twitter during half time about the look. As I said in my last post on the topic, I was always an Andrews guy, never a Samantha Steele guy. For me, the fact that Steele hastily married Christian Ponder clouds the entire issue. I really question her decision making. I know Ponder is a playoff quarterback and he does get credit for handing Adrian Peterson the ball play after play, but she couldn’t have started something with RG III, Andrew Luck or Russell Wilson? Oh well, better than choosing Mark Sanchez I guess.
Personally I kinda like the librarian thing. I had tried to get my girl to wear her glasses more often over the years but for whatever reason it just didn’t happen that much. That doesn’t stop me from wearing mine though :)
P.S. – Thanks to the fellas @bustedcoverage for the pic
I’d love to see the Benglas beat the Texans this afternoon. It will cap off one of the all-time debacles in NFL history. They were 11-1! When you’re a Jets fan you root for sick things like that…
And how great will it be if we get some snow along with temperatures in the teens on the frozen tundra tonight. Adrian Peterson, Aaron Rodgers, 73,000 people freezing their asses off while I’m by the fire place with my favorite beverage. It doesn’t get any better than that.
