This is... spectacular.
The recent off-the-field exploits of Johnny Football Manziel have been too numerous, too crazy to really do them justice. If you've paid even the slightest attention to the site since Manziel became the first freshman to ever win the Heisman Trophy, you've seen the 20-year-old show up at casinos and Spring Break destinations, party with the guys from Duck Dynasty and hang out with his smoker of a girlfriend, Sarah Savage. He's essentially acted like a regular dude would if he suddenly became one of the most famous athletes in the country, before he could even legally drink—and for that, we're big fans.
Now, Manziel has really done it. He was photographed on 4/20 with a blunt held in the Heisman's stiff arm. Clay Travis of Outkick the Coverage got his hands on the picture. He couldn't confirm that it's really Manziel, however the rising sophomore was photographed earlier in the day wearing the exact same shirt, so, you know, the odds are good it's him.
The photo is incredible. Either Manziel is totally clueless when it comes to being photographed in compromising situations, or—in the more likely scenario—he truly doesn't give a shit. I'm hoping for the latter.
Now, cue the moralizers and Skip Baylesses and other carnival barkers.
UPDATE: Manziel says it's a Photoshopped picture. In which case, we apologize to Mr. Football.
