In the annals of cinema, few characters are more universally beloved by teenagers than McLovin, the lion-hearted space cadet character from the cult classic Super Bad. Played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, McLovin lives out every teen male’s dream in the span of a night in a way that few characters outside Ferris Buehler himself did.
Now we know that McLovin himself is a pretty big sports fan. In fact, Christopher Mitnz-Plasse is such a big sports fan that when he ran into top prep quarterback and Ole Miss commit Shea Patterson at the Rebels’ matchup against Texas A&M, he happily stopped and indulged in a quick snap with the prodigious prep passer.
We have absolutely no idea what Mintz-Plasse was doing at a game in Oxford, Miss. — he was born and raised in Los Angeles, after all — but we do know that Patterson was pretty excited to meet him, too.
