Former Huskers football quarterback Taylor Martinez apparently wants help from the social news and entertainment website Buzzfeed and wants it in a bad way.
Martinez launched his company, TTM3, after having initial success creating smart phone apps and games enjoyed by many.
Follow the Pattern and Tiny Ninja Jump, two creations of Martinez’s were small indications of his entrepreneurial intentions.
Now that he’s done with football thanks to a failed physical after being picked up by the Philadelphia Eagles, Martinez is looking to move forward in business, so it’s time to generate buzz.
What better (and more pun-worthy) way to do so than getting love from Buzzfeed? The site features fun-filled articles and lists such as “15 Feisty Ways To Insult People Like A Disney Character” and “9 Reasons Why Kids Are Total Jerks”.
Essentially, they cater to the people Martinez’s work is targetted at.
The college sports site College Spun happened upon a very busy Martinez, but Buzzfeed staff writer Krystie Lee Yandoli didn’t exactly do the young businessman any favors:

College Spun also caught Martinez’s interest in playing some roundball with a certain professional basketball player in the California area.
It sounds like he may have better luck with that date on the court than getting love for his work through Buzzfeed.
Get back on that horse, No. 3.
