One of the highlights of Johnny Football’s incredible performance at the Cotton Bowl was the two drunk female Texas A&M fans who crashed a live pre-game show for CBS DFW, Correspondant Jeff Jamison
Go Johnny Footbaaaaaal!!!
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel became the first newcomer to win the Heisman Trophy, taking college football’s top individual prize Saturday night after a record-breaking debut.
There is no doubt that Johnny “Football” Manziel
is one of the most exciting players in US College football.
He is so popular that Texas A&M and
the Manziel family are seeking a trademark for ‘Johnny Football’.
Can a Freshman win The Heisman Memorial Trophy Award (usually known colloquially as the Heisman Trophy or the Heisman)?
UPDATE December 7, 2012 Sports Illustrated’s Heisman Poll
With more than 23,000 votes counted as of midnight on Thursday, the Texas A&M quarterback took the top spot in SI.com’s annual People’s Heisman poll, collecting a whopping 48 percent of available first-place votes. With 49,995 total points, Manziel topped Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o (34,784) by a 15,211-point margin.
Johnny Manziel Accolades
After a great game on November 24, Texas A&M handled Missouri 59-29, Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said, ”We don’t act like this is just real unusual that they scored some points. “It’s not. We’re talking about a great quarterback. I’m certainly disappointed we didn’t play better (but) the things he did to us, he did to a lot of people.”
Johnny Manziel could also have been Johnny Baseball, maybe Johnny Golf. After all, his high school coach, Mark Smith, says ”he could have been anything he wanted to be.”
”He’s always in control,” Smith said. ”He doesn’t panic and he doesn’t get frustrated. He just continues to play.”
Texas A&M coach:
”I saw the video and it was just a highlight tape,” Sumlin said. ”I didn’t have to watch very much of it. There’s a couple of guys that when coaches come back and say, ‘Coach, you need to see this, can we offer this guy?’ You watch a few plays and ask, ‘Why did you even show that to me? Why didn’t we offer the guy when you were there?”
After the great win against Missouri, his coach said, “ ”I think the voters are going to recognize (the numbers),” Sumlin said of Manziel, who has 4,600 yards of total offence. “It doesn’t matter what year you are when you’re talking about those numbers and the league we are (in), I think tells you all you need to know.”
“Welcome, everyone, to the world of Johnny Heisman. No moment is too big for him.”–Matt Hayes, The Sporting News

American football players in the NFL have claimed that their newly-designed uniforms
“make them look fat.”
Nike, which manufactures the shirts, has changed the design of the outfits to make them tighter and sleeker.
Many of the linemen think the new designs are unflattering.
San Francisco 49ers star Alex Boone, who weighs over 300 pounds, complained that his stomach hangs out of the new jersey when he wears it, adding: “I hate them. It makes me look fat, and I’m not fat.”
Boone told the paper that even his wife was no help.
She said, “It looks like you ate a small baby.”
One Big Boned lineman was quoted as saying, “I’m not fat, I’m just supersized!”
Terrence Cody 349 pounds ~ not fat just full bodied!
Leonard Davis, San Francisco’s 6-foot-6, 355-pound offensive guard, said his jersey often un-tucks in games “and I don’t even play that much.”
Curtis took Leroy to his first football game. They had great seats right behind their team’s bench. After the game, he asked him how he liked the experience.
‘Oh, I really liked it,’ he replied, ‘especially the cheering and the big hits, but I just couldn’t understand why they were killing each other over 25 cents.’
Dumbfounded, Curtis asked, ‘What do you mean?’
‘Well, they flipped a coin, one team got it and then for the rest of the game, all they kept screaming was: ‘Get the quarter back! Get the quarter back!’ I’m like….Helloooooo? It’s only 25 cents!!!!!!!!!!!

RELIGION, SPORTS AND POLITICS ~ the most popular topics in America! This is especially true during the silly season of American politics and NFL Playoffs.
Was God on Tim Tebow’s side
in the land of the Patriots Saturday
when his team took on New England in the NFC playoffs?
Tebow needed more than a few
if he was going to defeat the Patriots
The game between the Denver Brocos and the New England Patriots is likely to be the most-watched NFL playoff contest in history, as America’s choir boy Tim Tebow faced Tom Brady, the playboy powerhouse.
Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow takes his helmet off following an NFL divisional playoff football game against the New England Patriots Saturday, Jan. 14, 2012, in Foxborough, Mass.
The Patriots defeated the Broncos 45-10.
Tim Tebow ~ favourite Bible passage is John 3:16,
threw for 316 yards,
31.6 yards per pass and
had an overtime with a TV rating of 31.6
“When we place our dependence in God, we are unencumbered, and we have no worry. . . .This confidence, this sureness of action, is both contagious and an aid to the perfect action. The rest is in the hands of God — and this is the same God, gentlemen, who has won all of His battles up to now.” VINCE LOMBARDI 1964
Commenting on athletes and religious displays a few year ago: “It’s just plain silly,” said Dan Barker, 55, a minister turned atheist, and a spokesman for the 5,300-member Freedom from Religion Foundation. “When you throw a football and you pray, do the laws of nature change? Does the elliptical curve of the ball through the air suddenly swerve, or what? Is God blessing you for winning and is God cursing the other team for losing? Just the arrogance of that; it’s one thing to be happy and thankful, but to put it on religion, it’s so uncivil, because everybody has different religions.”
If you are a deeply religious football player (or any athlete) and your team loses, do you say, “Thank you, lord, for letting us lose.”?
I believe Tebow may be an exceptional person, but I don’t believe God wants him to win more than he does any other athlete. But it’s an argument that can never be won.
Tim Tebow ~ one of the most fascinating Modern Day Americans!
Tim Tebow ~ the most popular athlete in America
Tim Tebow ~ lots of time to try to improve in the off season
Tim Tebow ~ should be a GOP / Republican Candidate!
