One Texas A&M regent wants to name Kyle Field after Johnny Manziel

New, comments

... you know Johnny didn't build that house, right?

Scott Halleran

Listen, Mr. Schwertner ...

... Kyle Field has been around a long time. About a century. It's called Kyle Field because it was originally made by a guy called Kyle. But, you know what? I get that "The House That [Person Who Excelled In Building] Built" is kind of a thing in sports, and whether or not Johnny Manziel deserves to have his name on the biggest stadium in the SEC above all other previous A&M alums, I say we go through with this. I like the idea of adding subtitles to stadium names, and I think we should retroactively extend this idea to all things with subtitles, like:

The Lord of the Rings: The House that Johnny Built

Breakin' 2: The House that Johnny Built

Call of Duty: The House that Johnny Built

Dr. Strangelove or: The House that Johnny Built

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3: The House that Johnny Built

Songs: The House that Johnny Built

...and so forth. Your idea is ridiculous, Mr. Schwertner, and it will surely never come to pass, but I like it and I give you this artist's rendering as a reward for your ingenuity:

It's just right.
