Sam the Minuteman was in Bristol this week filming another “This is SportsCenter” commercial at ESPN. If you recall Sam was part of a commercial featuring Andy Roddick back in 2004.
Apparently UMass got the invite for Sam to come back last month and agreed to film the commercial this week. Apparently the focus of the commercial centers around whether Brett Favre would return or staying retired. It looks like Brett is not part of the commercial but it is a take on his situation.
It’s great to see Sam get some more National TV exposure. Furthermore, the “This is SportsCenter” commercials are almost always hilarious with few exceptions.
