PLAYERS: Johnny Manziel
According to ESPN, Johnny “Football” Manziel will self impose a Twitter ban on himself due to the pressure of the press on his every tweet. He’s tweeted pictures of him with girls, alcohol, and one with a Longhorn tattoo. The TAMU Aggie Freshman Heisman winner has been under the microscope ever since the Aggies started winning and it has never stopped. In an interview with ESPN, Manziel had this to say: “I’ve kind of just shut it all off,” Manziel said. “With how the media has been with me for a while, I just shut everything off. As of [Monday], I said I was done with [Twitter] for however long. It’s fun to have, but it can get to be distracting at points.” Now, Manziel’s more than 330,000 Twitter followers will have to find other ways to keep up with what’s going on in his life. Hard to live your life in the spotlight.
