Johnny Manziel is messing with us, people!
Less than two weeks ago, the Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback said publicly that he's tired of all the media scrutiny of how he spends his personal time and that he's not going to change his partying lifestyle for anyone.
He has since seemingly set out to prove just that, first by retweeting photos of himself at a wild party thrown by everyone's favorite bad boy, Justin Bieber.
And now this: allowing himself to be photographed while tightly rolling a dollar bill in a Las Vegas bathroom over the weekend.
Of course, we all know that there's only one reason why someone would be tightly rolling a dollar bill in a Vegas bathroom -- am I right or am I right?
Wrong. Not when that guy is Johnny Football, who knows darn well that everything he does in public is going to be recorded on a smartphone and sent out for the world to see (in this case it was Busted Coverage that first posted the photo).
Manziel said so himself during the previously mentioned rant to reporters late last month, talking about people everywhere he goes who "when they walk into a place pull out their phones and all they want to do is follow me around and record everything."
He also said: "Now more than ever I've seen that it's an every-weekend thing wherever I'm at — whether it's in Cleveland on a weekend, or in Dallas or anywhere on a weekend, people want to record what I'm doing because they think it's a story."
So as much fun as it would be to speculate about what Manziel was up to in that bathroom, I'm just going to come right out and say it -- there's no way the most famous pro football player who has yet to take a snap in the NFL would prepare to do illegal drugs right there in front of everyone.
Sorry, Johnny, but I'm just not taking the bait. You're just going to have to find somebody else to waste their time writing a blog post about a non-incident you staged for your own amusement.
Um, wait a minute ...
