00:00
So Johnny Manziel is playing football again,
00:02
but his comeback so far has been tougher to watch
00:04
than Phil Mickelson's dance moves.
00:06
Manziel made his Canadian Football League debut
00:08
and it lasted all of one half.
00:11
Johnny Football quickly went back to being Johnny Sideline
00:14
after throwing four interceptions in just two quarters.
00:18
Yikes!
00:18
It was a sad sight considering the heights
00:21
Manziel achieved just a few years ago.
00:23
He was the Heisman Trophy winner at Texas A&M.
00:25
An NFL first-round draft pick,
00:28
and he was even on the cover of Golf Digest once.
00:32
It doesn't get much bigger than that.
00:35
But now he's behind someone named Jeremiah Masoli
00:38
on the Montreal Alouettes' depth chart?
00:41
I was going to make a joke about how he couldn't even
00:43
play for the hapless Cleveland Browns, but
00:45
he actually couldn't play for the Cleveland Browns.
00:48
Again, that's why he's playing football
00:51
in a country known for hockey.
00:53
On the bright side, Manziel is only 25,
00:56
and he still owns the trademark to Johnny Football.
00:59
Although, he's probably not selling much merch these days.
01:04
Maybe it's time for Johnny Football to find something else
01:06
before he becomes Johnny Footnote, for good.
01:09
Johnny Foosball has a similar ring to it.
01:12
Or what about giving Johnny Golf a try?
01:14
That's it, Johnny FootJoys
01:17
Manziel says he was routinely breaking 80 when he was 11.
01:21
Imagine if this great athlete put the time into his
01:24
golf game now, that fellow quarterback Tony Romo is.
01:28
He could clean up on the celebrity golf circuit as well.
01:31
And it would involve a lot less wear and tear on the body.
01:34
Just a thought Johnny.
