Johnny McEntee has my attention

Eat your heart out Dr. Pepper Halftime Challenge.

UConn backup quarterback Johnny McEntee has made his own trick shot video. After watching it I think it’s safe to say accuracy isn’t one of Johnny Mac’s problems. Some of my favorite trick shots were throwing the ball blindfolded, passing the ball into a trash can from high above, and a ricochet shot to open a door for his teammate. I’m looking forward to seeing if his passing skills can open the door to a starting job.

I hope he can impress Paul Pasqualoni enough to do more than just handing the ball off in blow out wins. Besides, I need a reason to watch UConn football. But if McEntee doesn’t succeed he should be able to find a job in marketing, or a QB coach for Donovan McNabb.

I never understood interventions. What’s the point of being told you drink too much from a room full of reasons why you drink in the first place?

Pepsi takes Racial Stereotypes to the Max

Super Bowl 45 is still going on but that’s not what’s on my mind.

I can’t believe Pepsi would make this type of commercial. It’s a racial stereotype that probably wont get too much attention though it should for it’s complete lack of common sense and cultural understanding. It seems someone at Pepsi finds it funny to show a Black man to be powerless to resist a White woman (even if he is evolved with a Black woman).

This stereotype has been around for ages, and the last thing I want is having it rubbed in my face on national television. I’m surprised the Black couple didn’t start doing the Jim Crow dance at the end. Super Bowl commercials have been turned down on more than one occasion. I have no idea how this one slipped through the cracks.

Someone at Pepsi must have never taken a Black history class.
