Alabama’s defenders didn’t have a lot of success getting hits on Johnny Manziel, but now a Birmingham bar and restaurant, Otey’s Tavern, is giving Bama fans their own chance to take a swing at Manziel.

The pinata version, that is.

The thirty inch tall Manziel pinata, which is filled with gift cards and prizes will be target practice at Wednesday’s trivia night. 

Until then he’s on display in the bar. 

Otey’s owner Will Haver told the Birmingham News:

“We don’t know what we are going to do with it besides hang it up in the tavern and see if we can’t get some people to come by and take pictures, and then maybe we will have a bashing on Wednesday night. Or, if he can make it all the way to the football game on Saturday, then after the game, we may do it some more.” 

As you can see, the Manziel pinata also has a sharpie in one hand and fake money in the other hand. 


No word yet if an AJ McCarron pinata, chest tattoo and all, will be making an appearance in any College Station bars.
