Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, taking college football´s top individual prize last night - and capping a record-breaking debut season. Nicknamed ´Johnny Football,´ Manziel kissed the trophy during a ceremony at the Best Buy Theater in New York´s Times Square. ´I have been dreaming about this since I was a kid, running around the backyard pretending I was Doug Flutie, throwing Hail Marys to my dad,´ he said after hugging his parents and kid sister.

A model girlfriend and in trouble with the law, already. Yup. It´s exactly the cred you need when you want to be a football star.
Just call me cynical when it comes to "sports stars".

The fight he was involved in stemmed from an altercation his friend started. His friend hurled an unfortunate racial slur at a passer by who wanted to fight. Manziel tried to intervene. When the passer by attacked him he responded. His only transgression was the fake ID which we all know is very rare on a college campus.

He´s too short for the pro´s. He´s not accurate enough and he doesn´t read defenses well enough. Great college QB´s don´t always make it in the NFL.

#3, not me I want Ohio State to get one more before Notre Dame does.

However, now I have to worry about ´´Johnny Football´s´´ getting a second one. I´m not sure I want even another Ohio State guy to get two of them. Archie was just so special.

Johnny Manziel presented a fake ID to the police officer at the scene of the altercation, not to some bar bouncer. He had another fake ID in his wallet. He was also charged with disorderly conduct. Not the worse conduct by a, ahem, 20 year old college freshmen but not showing good judgment and integrity. But he got the Heisman. I wanted Manti too.

Wow! You people are a bunch of sad cynics! First, you´ve forgotten what it was like to be young and do stupid things - you are amazingly perfect.

Second, you seem to not be able to appreciate a young man´s incredible physical feat for one season - and let´s face it, in the world of football whether college or pro, life in the sport can come to an abrupt end. In any contact sport it can come to an abrupt and often sad, even tragic end.

So, what´s your problem? Can´t appreciate talent? Have to dig deep and find the down side in all things posted? Think you are pithy with your cynical comments?

Not all commentators on this blog are like you - but those like you have really, really hurt this blog. There is nothing you have to say that truly furthers a conversation to make it enlightening, to make it genuinely learned and worthwhile. You simply denigrate. No wonder the conservative movement has stalled out. You´ve become as despicable and predictable as the liberals.

Those are lousy laurels to rest upon.

He´s a great talent and will be a legendary College Quarterback. The Pros are a different and less enjoyable game. He started the year as a thrower with a lot of athletic skills but developed into the beginnings of a very good passer. The TD passes to Swope versus Ole Miss and Kennedy versus Alabama he could not make in September.

Early in the year when he scrambled it was a pure run. At the end of the year, it was an opportunity to sort through the chaos he created in the defense by going through his progressions, hence the TD to Swope versus Alabama. I have no idea if he will be a good Pro but in College Football it will be one wild ride barring injury.

He not only broke Newton´s yardage record for a season (Newton did it in 14 games not 12 like JM), but also Archie Manning´s 40+ year old record for a game ----- TWICE.

Just enjoy the fun and feel glad that you are getting to see it. It´s sports. It´s a game.I thank my lucky stars for being able to watch Willie Mays from his rookie year in 1951 till being there at Cooperstown the day he was inducted. What a ride!

The title is misleading - how is he set to make millions? He is not allowed to be compensated while a college athlete.

It will be fun to watch Johnny the next three years. He might grow another inch or two - my son grew between the ages of 18 and 21.

I watched the Heisman show and was impressed with all three candidates. I wish them all well.

Manti is a senior and this was his last chance to get a Heisman. This was Johnny´s first chance, but probably not his last, so that´s why I felt Manti deserved it this year. While growing up in Hawaii, he also became an Eagle Scout. Only a small percentage of boys go all the way in Boy Scouts to make Eagle. It says a lot about his character, strength and determination. My oldest (of 3 sons and 1 daughter) made it to Eagle and that will forever be on his resume´. Johnny deserved the Heisman, but so did Manti.

Was at the A&M-Bama game. Manziel played a career game that day, just made every throw perfectly and never made a mistake. He deserved the Heisman for that performance.

I look forward to seeing Manziel again in College Station when Bama and A&M open the 2013 season.

Good kid, great QB, and a deserving recipient.

Texas Officials Blast Gay Marriage Ruling
Breitbart Texas, by Kristin Tate    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/26/2014 10:05:53 PM     Post Reply
AUSTIN, TX.--Texas´ ban on gay marriage was struck down by San Antonio-based federal Judge Orlando Garcia today. The judge suspended his ruling, however, meaning that the ban will remain in place until a secondary ruling by an appeals court later this year. Federal judges have the right to suspend a law if it is believed to cause significant suffering for the plaintiffs. The original lawsuit in Texas was filed by two gay couples: Cleopatra De Leon and Nicole Dimetman of Austin; and Mark Phariss and Victor Holmes of Plano. In his decision, Judge Garcia said the gay marriage ban has no "rational

Havana- A Russian warship was docked in Havana Wednesday, without explanation from Communist Cuba or its state media. The Viktor Leonov CCB-175 boat, measuring 91.5 meters (300 feet) long and 14.5 meters wide, was docked at the port of Havana´s cruise ship area, near the Russian Orthodox Cathedral. The Vishnya, or Meridian-class intelligence ship, which has a crew of around 200, went into service in the Black Sea in 1988 before it was transferred seven years later to the northern fleet, Russian media sources said. Neither Cuban authorities nor state media have mentioned the ship´s visit, unlike on previous tours

As both sides ramp up pressure in the fight over legislation that opponents say encourages discrimination against gays and lesbians, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer´s office said she would make a statement about the controversial bill Wednesday. Brewer is expected to veto the measure, but she hasn´t said publicly what steps she´ll take. Opinions are sharply divided on the politically charged measure, SB 1062, approved last week by the state´s Republican-led legislature and now at Brewer´s desk. Brewer´s office said she would make a statement at 7:45 p.m. ET today. The bill proposes to give Arizona businesses that assert their religious

Were they all this ugly? It’s memorable, for whatever that’s worth. It’s also nothing like anything Jobs would have probably approved. He was all about clean design that made intuitive sense. That statue has Cyrillic letters sticking out of the side, because the designer is Serbian. Also, it has a tiny, pitted pinhead. It is basically a disturbing Pez dispenser, but without candy.

Two Muslim converts found guilty of brutally murdering British soldier Lee Rigby in broad daylight in a London street have been sentenced today. Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale were found guilty on 19th December 2013 of killing 25-year-old soldier Lee Rigby, who had served a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Adebolajo, 28, was sentenced to a whole life tariff. Adebowale, 22, was sentenced to 45 years in prison. The pair were said to be shouting in the court room earlier, screaming "Allah hu Akbar" before they were removed by guards. Judge Nigel Sweeney delayed sentencing in order to take account

Space travel has been very good for Sandra Bullock. The 49-year-old actress looks set to earn her biggest paycheck to date for Gravity, with studio sources saying she will make at least $70 million when all revenue streams are factored in. According to multiple sources, Bullock´s deal with Warner Bros. for the Alfonso Cuaron-directed space epic calls for her to earn $20 million upfront against 15 percent of first-dollar gross. That means once her advance is covered, she will collect 15 percent of the studio´s slice of the box-office pie, known as "film rentals." Each studio negotiates individual deals with

AUSTIN, Texas — A federal judge has struck down Texas’ ban on gay marriage, but is leaving it in place pending a ruling by an appeals court later this year. Judge Orlando Garcia issued a preliminary injunction on the ban Wednesday, then suspended his ruling. Two gay couples had challenged the state’s constitutional amendment and a longstanding law banning gay marriage.Under federal court rules, a judge may suspend a law if he or she believes the plaintiffs have a strong case and will suffer if the law is enforced. Garcia said his injunction against Texas enforcing its ban will take effect

Can Obamacare Avoid a Consumer Rebellion?
National Journal, by Sam Baker    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/26/2014 1:23:54 PM     Post Reply
When Obamacare handed insurance companies millions of compulsory customers, it also handed them a reminder of one of their industry´s toughest realities: Consumers want low premiums, and they want to see any doctor they want. And it´s impossible to give them both. Generally, insurers selling plans on Obamacare´s exchanges opted to keep premiums low, hoping the public would prefer a low upfront price tag—even if that meant customers couldn´t always pick their first-choice doctor. But "if you like your doctor, you can hope she´s in our network" was always going to be a tough sell for insurers. With the insurance

Were he alive today, Richard Nixon would have to doff his hat to Barack Obama. Compared with how the Obama administration has swept under the rug the Benghazi attacks of September 11, 2012, Nixon’s attempt to cover up the Watergate burglary was rank amateurism. To be fair, Nixon’s team of Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, and Dean were not in the same league as Obama’s, which includes not only his cabinet but most of the national media and much of Congress.
