BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – Alabama fans are poking fun at Johnny Manziel in advance of Saturday’s SEC matchup game against the Aggies.

A Birmingham bar called Otey’s Tavern is inviting customers to take a swing at a Johnny Football pinata Wednesday night.

The pinata is holding a Sharpie in one hand and cash in the other and it has a dollar sign as a jersey number -- a not-so-subtle reference to allegations the Heisman Trophy winner accepted money for autographs.
The owner of Otey’s said patrons will get to whack a second Manziel pinata later in the week.

Apparently Bama fans are still a little bitter over last year's upset loss to A&M in Tuscaloosa.

The Aggies host the Crimson Tide at 2:30 p.m. Saturday in College Station. You can watch the game on KBTX.
