All of this because of a slip of the tongue.
Last Monday Night, the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Vikings were doing battle on the field when Joe Tessitore accidentally gave Seahawks rookie receiver D.K. Metcalf a nickname. He referred to him as Decaf Metcalf.
Now, everybody can not only enjoy that name, but enjoy it in their stomachs after a Georgia-based coffee company, Volcanica Coffee, partnered with Metcalf to begin selling 16-ounce bags of “Decaf Metcalf” coffee on the company’s website, according to ESPN.
“Tessitore has blessed the deal, with he and Metcalf making sure that part of the proceeds will be donated to a charity of their choice.
Metcalf is donating part of the proceeds to Prison Fellowship, which helps prisoners, former prisoners and their families and is a leading advocate for justice reform. It is the same organization for which he is wearing his My Cause My Cleats on Sunday.
Tessitore is donating part of the proceeds to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Both charities will have their company logos appear on the back of the coffee bags.”
