Johnny Manziel has entered the 2014 NFL Draft, and not a moment too soon. I personally can't wait for him to be in the NFL. And not just from an on-the-field perspective. Although "Johnny Football" is going to be an excellent quarterback for the team willing to take a chance on him (Looking at you, Jacksonville. What do you have to lose?).
He's also going to be exceptional off the field, too. Hell, he already has been with Texas A&M. I can't wait to see what he has in store for the NFL. And let's be honest, he's not a troubled kid. This isn't like he's done anything criminal during his college career. He's instead been a, you know, college kid. He made the same mistakes a lot of us made in college; we just didn't have the eyes of the football world on us.
With that in mind, let's take a look at Johnny Football's top pop culture moments at Texas A&M.
He totally overslept
Johnny made headlines when he was kicked out of the Manning Passing Academy because he overslept. Some alleged he partied too hard. Been there, man. Besides, I can't imagine the MPA being that fun, anyway. Especially not when you compare it to working out on the beach.
Getting kicked out of a frat party
Yeah, speaking of getting kicked out of things, Manziel was escorted out of a Texas fraternity party. Apparently, beating your rivals repeatedly will do this. While the video is fun, I don't think we are giving him enough credit for having the guts to actually walk into the party in the first place. That would actually move him up my draft board.
Other sports endeavors
Manziel did the requisite rounds of throwing out the first pitch both at Rangers Ballpark at Arlington and PetCo Park in San Diego. (He even showed a nice stroke as he took batting practice in San Diego.) But maybe the most impressive was the 79 he shot at Pebble Beach. I'd rank that up there with winning the Heisman Trophy as a freshman.
All right, to be a guest on the "Tonight Show" might not be what it once was (though that will change when Jimmy Fallon takes over), it's still pretty (expletive) cool. And Johnny knocked it out of the park when he brought a gift for Megan Fox's kid.
He's got a sense of humor
Like a lot of you, I love a good ironic, hipster jersey. But I nearly fell out of my chair when Johnny was photographed in a Tim Tebow jersey. At some point, I figure that I'm just going to ask that he's put on the $100 bill. (Please, let the subtlety of that joke go and just enjoy it.)
He hung out with Drake
Will I be a poser and try to front like I'm a huge fan of rap? I certainly won't. Yet, even the most music enthusiasts would recognize it's pretty (expletive) cool to hang out with Drake. Once again, we're just living in Johnny Football's world.
