Someone Else’s Privacy.

Wednesday at the SEC media day the big story was Johnny Manziel and the Manning Passing Academy Camp. ESPN reported the story about Johnny Manziel leaving the Manning Passing Camp: Johnny Football leaves the Manning Passing Academy early.

The BBWAA (Baseball Writers’ Association of America) had…

Here’s Johnny

Johnny Manziel had a great 2012. Beat #1 ranked Alabama? Check. Win the Heisman Trophy as a freshman? Check. For many twenty year olds that would be enough. For Johnny ‘Football’, he was just getting warmed up. Friday night he walked into Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas to lead Texas A&M against the Oklahoma Sooners…

Seahawks Dominate

This time of year teams start to separate themselves from the pack. The playoffs really start to take shape.
