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:
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.
Well, I guess it’s time to give our now annual list of bold predictions for the new year. This time around we have a list of 24 predictions as opposed to the usual 20. Why is that? I honestly have no clue. I guess we’re bettering our chances of getting some of them correct.
Anyway, we’ll post 12 predictions today and 12 more tomorrow. Here we go.

Hello all! It’s 2013, and outside of one team from L.A., the Thunder continue to dominate the NBA landscape. Since it’s a new year, it seems like high time we make a resolutions list, highlighting what I’d like to see out of the Thunder as we continue this fantastic season. I know that the Thunder are 24-6 right now, so it’s hard to complain about anything that’s happened so far. But when you get right down to it, that’s what New Year’s Resolutions are. Complaints about silly things like being overweight and or drinking too much Diet Dr Pepper.
So I’ve got a list of resolutions the team may want to consider.
1. Throw T-Shirts in different places. Is it just me, or do the same people get T-Shirts every single game? They have this Balon Blaster that shoots T-Shirts at exactly the same distance every time, resulting in exactly the same folks getting shirts every time. I’m betting if you sat in a good strategic position, you could get a free shirt at least every other night. There’s also this rubber band thing that shoots into the 300 level, but it always seems to land in the first row. Put it this way: I’ve sat in the same seat since opening night in ’08, and I haven’t gotten a free non-playoff shirt since 2009 or so. I want a free T-Shirt! Just once!
