On the field, he looks like has more raw energy than anyone else. Good for him. The Cotton Bowl performance with all the pressure and hype was simply a beautiful thing to see.
You know you’ve hit the big time when the celebrity stalkers at TMZ.com start tracking your every move. Not that there was any doubt that Heisman-winning Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel had already hit the big time.
TMZ.com reported yesterday that the 20-year-old was photographed at a pair of post-Cotton Bowl celebrations at Avenu Lounge in Dallas. One of those photos showed him with fireworks shooting out of his mouth. In his hand was a bottle of Dom Perignon.
Well, folks at the club say they didn’t see Johnny Football consume any alcohol and he didn’t open a bar tab, either. In addition, his parents were on hand.
So there’s really nothing to this story at all other than a really great photo that’s now seen the light of day. (Unless a fire marshal has a problem with a club allowing someone to shoot off sparks inside the building.)
