Part 2: Things That Make You Go…

Hmmm…

A little bit ago college quarterback Johnny Mac (UConn) put up a trick pass video.  This has spawned imitations and one of the imitators looks like the new king.  

Enter Monmouth College quarterback Alex Tanney who posted a YouTube trick shot/throw video Sunday night that has gone viral with over 420,000 hits as of this morning.

Here are some of his tricks: Hitting the goal posts and cross bar on the football field at Monmouth College from about 50 yards away, throwing a football into basketball hoops, throwing a ball off the roof of the Monmouth College library, over the scoreboard and through the uprights.
But the best might be hrowing from the floor of Gennie Gymnasium, through one of the doors over the mezzanine area, through the door on the other side and into a trash can on the opposite lower-level floor of the opposite gym…
You decide.  Be sure to watch Johnny Mac’s video above, he’s no slouch either… 
ESPN took note of the video, has already shown portions of it, and has invited Tanney to Bristol, Conn. for a taping in a couple of weeks. Thursday, he will travel to Chicago for an interview for the network's First Take show.
