Amazing, I just thought they’d realize it after couple tries, and they keep rolling it out.

I guess the first MIMITW is doing a Tequila commercial as the same character...

We’ll see.

I was hoping they were deploying the New Coke strategy by bringing back the original after the new one flopped.

They did a good job of skirting the line of making it clear he's the same character without actually stealing the IP.

That gives just a minuscule flavor of what it used to be minus the music, and humor, but still infinitely better then the new tire fire at Dos Equis.

Right. They're doing what they can to try to get a little heat/cred for their product without risking a lawsuit.

Best they can do.

It’s almost not just about the new dude, they had to have fired the whole marketing team.

Not even one clever moment since the first crew left.

The young Most Interesting Man playing Jai alai, and coming back from the moon, it’s all gone.. Almost unthinkable you would run that group outta town.

Former Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks is in Minnesota for his visit with the Vikings now, according to two league sources. Vikings will see if they want to add Eric Kendricks’ older brother to the roster.

That would be an insanely athletic LB group

That would be awesome!

No wonder Barr showed up today!

Holy moly!

“Insanely athletic” is about right.

Not that we play a hell of a lot of 3 LBer sets, but he’s uber athletic upgrade compared to Ben Gideon.

Depends on how much?

Kendricks is younger than I thought. He's just a year and a half older than his brother and Barr.

He could end up replacing Barr after the season if we can't work out a deal.

Anybody have any odds on if we sign him. Maybe he takes a discount to sign here because he wants to stick it to the Eagles.

Kendricks is going to visit the Raiders and Browns. Wonder if he wants a longer deal than 1 year.

We will see.

Wow. That would be really good. Another solid defender and a veteran who has been on a championship team.

Well he can take the money, or he can try to win with us.

I called this last year to happen, however I don’t think we’ll play enough with 3 LBers to warrant the investment. Of course injury would change that (gawd forbid).

I like both Kendricks at LBer!

“Oh, man, It’d be a dream come true,’’ Mychal Kendricks said of possibly playing again with his brother. “That’s my best friend. Playing with my bro would be so cool, and it’s a rare opportunity.’’

Then might as well take it with the Vikings.

We have one of the best rosters in football, that was proven last year.

GB has one of the worst rosters, that was proven last year.

I get that Rodgers is better than Cousins, but he’s not that much better.

They really said those words. The Vikings have a SHOT at being a wild card team. Did they say we had no shot at the division, the conference, or the Super Bowl?

If he’s going to be “discounted” he’s not going to want more than a one year deal.

It’s actually pathetic, but we have to go change the Lazy Ass narrative of Lazy Ass reporters that are prevelant on all these shows.

Go out and stomp on that Packer roster.... It will be even better putting them down with their star back...
