Johnny Manziel Likely To Be Suspended For Signing Autographs For Money, Picture is Proof

Another new week and yet another new Johnny Manziel controversy. And this one is more than likely to get him suspended.

Allegedly Manziel received 5 figures to sign multiple photos, jerseys, and mini helmets down in Miami back in January before the BCS National Title game from an autograph broker. There were multiple witnesses in the hotel room when Manziel signed the items. If AJ Green can get suspended for 4 games for selling his Liberty Bowl jersey for $1000 you have to imagine the NCAA or Texas A&M will suspend him for as many games if not longer. It's a clear NCAA infraction and every football player knows the rule. While I can agree the rule isn't really fair for the athlete because I think they should be given a chance to make money off their own name it is still a rule and a violation on Manziel's part. He has to be suspended.

Which royally sucks because I wanted to see him play vs Bama. Everybody wants to see Johnny Football play. The only problem is he keeps making stupid decisions off the football field and now this will cost him and his team big time. Some people just can't handle the Heisman hype. And it's not like Manziel needed the money. The kid has rich parents who send him everywhere and he doesn't even have to go to class. His Dad gave him a new Mercedes just because he didn't want Johnny to accept improper benefits. It's pretty clear that Johnny can't handle the spotlight. And you know NFL personnel are taking notes on this.

My prediction is Texas A&M will withhold Manziel from the first two games in hope of appeasing the NCAA and then have him play vs Bama Sept 14th. Just a wild guess on my part.

Chicago Cubs Fan Doesn't Know Proper Trough Toilet Etiquette

While it is a bit shocking to see a Cubs fan peeing while standing up at one of Wrigley's piss troughs at least he isn't dropping a deuce in there. Too many Old Styles for this poor guy. You never go full ass in the men's pisser. Never. Ever.

Notre Dame Unveils 2013 Shamrock Series Uniforms

Via press release...

adidas and the University of Notre Dame today unveiled alternate TECHFIT football uniforms the Irish will wear on October 5 for their annual Shamrock Series game. Notre Dame will face off against Arizona State in this year's Shamrock Series game at Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Notre Dame's new Shamrock Series adidas TECHFIT jersey is all-white with metallic gold and Kelly green shamrock accents, Celtic numbers and an interlocking "ND" logo on the back neck. Notre Dame's Kelly green adidas TECHFIT baselayer highlights "FIGHTIN' IRISH" on the chest and "ND" on each bicep. Notre Dame's helmet features Notre Dame's signature textured gold with a gold chrome shamrock detail on each side and a Kelly green chrome face mask. The Irish will wear adidas Team Speed vertical socks with Crazyquick and adizero 5-Star 2.0 cleats.

I got to say these new Shamrock Series uniforms are tight! I love the clean look to them and I really dig the helmet with the matte finished Shamrock on it and the metallic green facemask. Now I just need to get my hands on one of those helmets. I'm sure we will have them up for sale in the near future.
