It's been a watershed few days for Johnny Manziel — you know, not as watershed as beating Alabama or winning the Heisman as a freshman, but still, unbelievably important.
Here are the MOMENTS OF INTRIGUE that Johnny Manziel has experienced: first, Johnny Manziel shoved a graduate assistant in practice, or, as it should be described, got into something that could be considered a FIGHT with somebody who could be considered a COACH. Then, he said he would stop posting to Twitter, where he had become somewhat of an icon for his incredible tweeting talent.
Because there is a higher power in this messed-up world of ours, somebody caught up with Manziel to get to the bottom of all of this. That person was Brent Zwerneman of the San Antonio Express-News.
First, on why Manziel is ditching Twitter:
Manziel said photoshop hoax of his Twitter acct involving false criticism of OSU hoopster Aaron Craft was last straw w/ his being on Twitter— Brent Zwerneman (@BrentZwerneman) March 27, 2013
He said he doesn't know how long he'll be gone, but it's still a loss.
Then, on the GA incident:
Manziel on shove of GA Scott Aligo: 'I guess the GA was excited and he kind of gave me a shove. He was excited & laughing about the play'— Brent Zwerneman (@BrentZwerneman) March 27, 2013
Manziel shove (cont.): 'That didn't sit too well w/ me. I wasn't happy w/ throwing the pick, he shoved me & I just kind of pushed him back'— Brent Zwerneman (@BrentZwerneman) March 27, 2013
Manziel (cont) 'It wasn't anything serious & I don't consider him a coach. It was me being competitive..I wasn't trying to be disrespectful'— Brent Zwerneman (@BrentZwerneman) March 27, 2013
And on the fact that he frequently uses the "Hook'Em" hand gesture, while most Aggie fans would want to saw Varsity's horns off rather than make finger signs out of them:
Why Manziel occasionally flashes 'hook em': 'For me it's not a rivalry. We got out of their conference and we're not playing them anymore'— Brent Zwerneman (@BrentZwerneman) March 27, 2013
One last Manziel on his 'hook ems': 'If we play them in a season of course it's going to be a rivalry and hate or whatever it is.'— Brent Zwerneman (@BrentZwerneman) March 27, 2013
