The summer of JOHNNY FOOTBALL continues: Our favorite Heisman-winn', Tim Tebow-dissin', Jimmy Tatro-buddyin', online class-attendin', and (possibly) blunt-smokin' QB was dismissed from the Manning Passing Academy this weekend by none other than patriarch Archie Manning, allegedly because the rising sophomore was visibly hungover.
Rumors and Rants has people on the scene:
Our boots on the ground in Thibodaux, La. — believe it or not, we have them — informed us that Johnny Manziel was sent home from the Manning Passing Academy on Saturday afternoon by Archie Manning himself. Our source, who wishes to remain anonymous because of his connection to the camp, gave us the scoop after Manziel showed up tardy Saturday afternoon after being out on the town Friday night. The Texas A&M star reportedly enjoyed himself a little too much Friday night and rolled back into the camp at Nicholls State University some time around noon Saturday before getting the boot.
Local writer Chris Singleton said Manziel was "sick" on Saturday, which may have been true to an extent—anyone battling a Sunday morning on death's door will say hangovers are an actual medical issue—but, no worries, the kid rallied. Deadspin has a collection of Tweets that point to Manziel partying at an A&M bar on Saturday night. Because Johnny Football is living the dream. I think.
