Talk about some great free advertising for Skittles. The way Johnny Football’s dad sees things, you don’t need steroids when you can taste the rainbow.

Paul Manziel, Johnny’s father, recently sat down with Wright Thompson of ESPN The Magazine for an upcoming piece. When asked what type of secret his son had for putting together the most electrifying year the SEC has ever seen – in his Aggies’ first year in the league – Papa Manziel was straight to the point.

It’s not quite the old “hot dogs and beer” quote from Babe Ruth’s days, but wow, this is pretty awesome.

What will Manziel need for an encore?

Skittles vodka, perhaps?
