"I'm Johnny's Great Uncle, his Mom, Michelle is my niece. I don't usually get involved in this kind of stuff, but I like this FB Page and have followed it since its inception so I will venture out there this one time. I'm sharing a picture of Johnny with two young cousins. Johnny loves kids and does a lot of things with and for kids that no one knows about. Johnny in many ways is just a big kid himself. His talent has propelled him into a spotlight that few people his age, if any, would be prepared for. But let me say this about him, Johnny is a GOOD big kid! He loves family and family loves him! He is loyal and is dedicated to his sport, team mates and team.
What Johnny tweeted about leaving College Station must be seen in context, as is true with anything that anyone says, and I am going to give y'all some context. I know we all want to like Johnny and truthfully there isn't much about him not to like, but media will do what they do best and that is ride a good horse into the ground.
Here is the short version...Johnny was away on a fishing trip in Port Aransas with some other football buddies and happened to be talking on the phone with one of his roommates when there comes a knock on their front door. The roommate who was about to go to bed, asks Johnny, who is in Port Aransas, if he is expecting anyone to stop by (at 12:30 AM). Yes, 12:30 AM! Johnny replies with a "no" while the roomy goes to look out the window and sees that a police car is parked pout front. He opens the door to, "we have been getting reports about the car parked in front of the house against traffic flow...and by the way the tint is to dark as well." (loose interpretation). Did I mention it was 12:30 AM???
Johnny explains that there is nothing he can do until he gets home tomorrow with the keys and asks what the officer is going to do. The officer left a ticket on his car...to which Johnny tweeted the tweet that went around the world surmising many things to which were a result of something taken completely out of context.
Johnny loves A&M and the football coaches and athletic staff love Johnny. Are the A&M powers upset over this? Their take is that if this is the worst that comes out of the media's coverage in the off season...no big deal...life is good (loosely interpreted). They know the truth, the family and friends know the truth and now you know the truth. The haters will just keep feeding and the media will beat that dead horse until there's nothing left I'm sure.
Johnny Football is real...he is young, but he is real. He thinks that he's learned his lesson this time and so do I...we will see. The lyrics to Darius Rucker's song is so true...kids Johnny's age are going to, no actually " you gotta live and learn, you gotta crash and burn" He's a great person let's cut him some slack in his youth and remember believe half of what you see and none of what you hear...from the media."
SEC SEC SEC!!!
I actually would expect a MAnziel relative to quote Darius Rucker in casual conversation so I know this is legit. Thanks for sharing.
"I like Bears and if you're going to be a bear, UMMMMM, BE A Grizzley"
more concerned with floyd and deshazor.
Dude they will be fine. They'll miss the Rice game, maybe.
thanks for sharing, though, USMC. glad to see A&M is making the Manziel family feel supported. off season needs to end ASAP.
The guy who called the cops specifically called the cops because it was Johnny's car. All because Johnny was parked facing the wrong way. That guy is a loser.

Yea, he's a pos. and the cops are garbage too, they could have easily given him a warning. CSPD are dicks just to be dicks.
My grandfather went to middle school with Johnny's great uncle. Said he was one crazy bastard haha
The cop obviously ran the plates to give him the ticket. Who gives a Hesiman trophy winning QB a ticket for this kind o shit?
Sick heads from CSPD.
Parked facing the wrong way in a residential area? Knew the tint was too dark when it's just past midnight? Talked on the phone to the cop aboutit? I'd have tweeted the pic of the ticket and ID'ed the cop that did it and explained how it went down. CSPD = organization of ass clowns.
If you're parked the wrong way on a thoroughfare, ok.
But on a residential street? And you knew whose car it was?
I lived in the historic district in school and people getting tickets for parking violations was a pretty regular occurrence on the weekends. Especially if there was a party.
Bryan PD is 10000000 times better than CSPD. There is no excuse for the attitude their officers have. You chose that profession.
What FB page is that on?
The Johnny Manziel page.
LEOs should foster support and commonality with their communtiy, not ticket the Heisman winner for tinted windows at 12:30 AM. That is bullshit and the officer's name should be made public.
Texas A&M is the major representation of Texas football culture within the sport's premier conference, the SEC. The sleeping Giant is awake.
Give that A-hole cop a real job, like actually helping the public who pays for his job. What a joke!!!
