On Saturday afternoon, the world will stop when CBS broadcasts what's sure to be one of the biggest college football games of the season. Alabama will travel to Texas A&M to take on Johnny Manziel and the Aggies. And all eyes will be on Johnny Football. No, really, they will.
That's because CBS just announced that they are going to use a special "Johnny Cam" during the game. According to CBS college football producer Craig Silver, who spoke with Sports Illustrated writer Richard Deitsch recently, the goal of the "Johnny Cam" will be—as you would probably guess—to capture every single movement Manziel makes both on and off the football field on Saturday. If he throws a touchdown, pulls out a wad of $20 bills, and starts throwing them at Alabama players, CBS will capture it. If he sits on the sideline and tweets whenever Alabama has the ball, CBS will capture it. If he has to run to the locker room to use the can in the middle of the third quarter, CBS will capture it. Basically, you're going to spend more time looking at Manziel this weekend than looking at your girl. The "Johnny Cam" is going to make sure of it.
"No matter where he is and no matter what part of the game it is, we will have a shot of it," Silver said. "If he is anywhere in sight of that camera, we will catch it."
Sounds…creepy. Are you ready for the "Johnny Cam" to take over your life on Saturday?
