Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is a star in the making. He can throw footballs well, he can throw baseballs well and he has a vivacious personality that is rare among athletes these days. Apparently, he’s good with quotes, too. On former Seminoles star EJ Manuel’s first win in the NFL, Winston said: “I was smiling ear to ear like the Kool-Aid Man.”
Winston is off to a terrific start replacing Manuel as a redshirt freshman, passing for 570 yards and completing 88.9 percent of his attempts while leading the ‘Noles to a 2-0 mark. He currently has more touchdown passes (six) than he does incompletions (five). It’s a little hard to believe that he has far from reached his ceiling.
The Kool-Aid Man, for naturally inquisitive readers who aren’t yet aware, unveiled a new look in April. Now, he is just a “normal guy.”
The Kool-Aid Man, known for busting through walls and his “Oh yeah!” tagline, will now be computer-generated and take on the personality of a celebrity trying to show he’s just a normal guy.
