Other than the Cotton Bowl debacle and Johnny Football gambling at an Oklahoma tribal casino, this was a pretty slow news weekend. In fact, it was so slow that our own News Channel 4 decided to abandon all journalistic standards and bring us a story about an old lady who lost her yorkie:
On Saturday afternoon, an Ogle Mole sent me a pic of 20-year-old Heisman-winning bad ass Johnny Manziel drinking champagne at a nightclub in Dallas a few hours after winning the Cotton Bowl. At the time, I remember thinking “That’s cool and everything, but what’s the local angle? The last thing I want to do is write about that stupid game.”
Fortunately, Johnny Football spared me 20-minutes of pain, torment and heavy drinking and provided a better Oklahoma tie-in for our photo. Early Saturday night, he and a couple of buddies that he must have found on Craigslist visited the WinStar Casino (pic above). There’s no word if he urinated on the Roman Colosseum (which according to Clark Matthews is some sort of tradition), but it looks like he had a good time and won some cash.
Via Busted Coverage:
Johnny Manziel went out and gave a historic effort last night in the Cotton Bowl. Tonight he’s giving 110% at the Winstar Casino in Oklahoma.
That’s the Heisman winner, 20-years-old, and a fan of cash that we assume he won in the casino. You can relax, it’s an 18+ establishment. According to the Winstar FAQ page:
Due to State and Federal Gaming Regulations, you must be at least 18 years old to enjoy any of the casino games. If you do not meet the minimum required age, you are still able to enjoy any of our amazing restaurants and our Global Event Center, if accompanied by an adult.
Ironically, Manziel deleted a tweet to this photo. If you’re anywhere near the Winstar, we advise you to get there quick and look for the guy wearing a Heat hat.
So there you go. Johnny Football gambled at an Oklahoma Tribal Casino on Saturday, but it looks like he had even more fun the night before. Check out an exclusive photo of him holding a glass — yes, a glass — of champagne at a nightclub…
Yeah, so it turns out our photo is not very exclusive. Since Saturday afternoon, TMZ, DeadSpin, and other websites have posted pictures of Johnny Manziel partying on both Friday and Saturday night. Most of the pictures show him surrounded by hot chicks with a bottle of champagne in his hands and a sparkler in his mouth, but only we have a pic of him holding an actual glass of champagne. That’s correct. He’s holding a glass of champagne! Scandalous!
Last night, I was alerted to this strange YouTube music video called “I’m A Man, I’m 40 (My Name Is Mike Gundy).” The song, which is about Mike Gundy and the college football power he created, was produced and performed by an online “journalist” named Brian Shaw.
The video itself is pretty cheesy and terrible. That being said, I kind of like the thing. It’s virtually guaranteed to irritate the hell out of Clark Matthews, Josh Pettit or any other OSU fan who watches it. And let’s be honest, there’s nothing more fun than seeing an irritated OSU fan get angry and upset (especially after the Cowboys choke away a Bedlam game and turn Brennan Clay into a hero). Hell, PistolsFiring.com hates the video so much they posted a second-by-second reaction to the clip in an attempt to refute the guy’s lyrics.
Anyway, here’s the video:
Back in November, we told you that Bobbie Miller would be replacing Robin Marsh on News 9 in the Morning. As a result, Robin Marsh would then move to News 9 at 4:00pm, where she would replace Christina Eckert who was moving to Texas to live with her husband.
Well, it looks like the changes have finally taken place. We know this not because we watch News 9 in the morning or at 4:00pm, but because Robin Marsh’s husband is writing about his wife’s new sleep schedule on her Facebook page.
Check out this screen shot that was sent to us by an Ogle Mole:
Yesterday we counted down our first 12 predictions for the year. Here’s the second half of the list. There’s a good chance some of them will come true.
13. Christina Fallin DOES NOT get married this year.
(Remember, these are supposed to be bold predictions. The rest are after jump. And yes, that’s some girl with pink hair whose name rhymes with Latina Howlin’ partying at Saints in the Plaza District. Thank you, Ogle Mole Network.)
14. Meg Alexander openly admits that she has been trying to “Single White Female” Joleen Chaney for over a year now.
