And Another Thing


Heeeere's Johnny!

When last seen, Johnny Manziel, the kid America apparently thinks should be a Trappist monk because he's an NFL player now, was at it again, floating on an inflatable swan and spraying people with champagne at a pool party in his native Texas.

Good grief. Will he ever quit acting like it's summertime, he's 21 years old and he had a weekend off? Why wasn't he holed up somewhere reading his playbook, for pity's sake?

Instead, Manziel was, well, acting like it's summertime, he's 21 and he had a weekend off. Which gets you to thinking what life in the Fort would be like if Manziel, who was drafted last week by the Padres, decided to give baseball a whirl and wound up a TinCap.

Why, the Twitterstorm alone boggles the mind ...

Saw @JManziel2 at Piere's last night. He was drinking a beer! On his night off! #disgraceful

Why can't @JManziel2 just stick to baseball? If he spent more time in the cage instead of having fun he might make it all the way to Lake Elsinore!

The TinCaps will never win with attitudes like @JManziel2's. Why, I saw him laughing in the dugout the other night!

And the reply to that:

What a punk. What does he think this is, a game? It's baseball! It's no game!

And the reply to that:

Amen! I pay good money to come see this guy play. I'm not paying to watch @JManziel2 smile and laugh and act like he's having fun out there!

And then there'd be this ...

Saw @JManziel2 partying at Kroger's. OK, not partying. But he was buying CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM, which is the same thing. #growup
