After sitting out the first half against Rice, Texas A&M quarterback, and controversy lightning rod, Johnny Manziel came into the game and promptly threw for 3 TDs en route to a 52-31 Aggies blowout win. At one point Manziel got into a little heated trash talking with a Rice defender, and in a delicious bit of trolling, made an obvious autograph gesture towards his opponent… One plucky and enterprising fan was able to corral the air Johnny Manziel “signed” for the Rice defender, quite ingeniously I might add, bottled it, and put it up for auction on eBay. This is real life people. Here’s the seller’s description of this totally legit, wholly unique item… Up for auction is THE air that JOHNNY MANZIEL signed against Rice on August 31, 2013 at Kyle Field (College Station).  In the most recent matchup between Texas A&M and Rice, Johnny Manziel was suspended for the first half for signing autographs. When he returned in the second half, he torched the Rice defense to the tune of three TD’s.  After one play in particular a Rice defender asked Johnny Manziel for his autograph (his mother is a huge fan). Johnny happily obliged and, having no pen or 8×10 glossy, he instead signed the air for his newest fan.  Unfortunately, and unknowingly, for the defender, air is public domain. As soon as Manziel autographed that air it became anyone’s to grab.  That’s where I come in. I was at the game and watched this whole scenario unfold. I watched as the autographed air drifted in my direction. After fighting off several fans, I managed to take the autographed air into my mouth…and hold it there until the game ended.  Upon returning home I blew Manziel’s autograph (along with a .08) into a small canister where it remains.  Since eBay will not let me sell air, THIS AUCTION IS FOR THE CANISTER and the autographed air will be included for free.  *Please note. Johnny has enough trouble with autographing items. So please know I did not pay him anything for this air. It was simply air drifting through the public domain where I was lucky enough to fill my mouth with it.  Also, for those of you who are curious, Manziel’s autograph tasted like a mix of strippers and Swisher Sweets. Delicious! Thanks and happy bidding on this one of a kind item. Silly yes, but this guy wins the Internet for the weekend with the line “Manziel’s autograph tasted like a mix of strippers and Swisher Sweets.” That is pure, unadulterated gold, and if ever there was an analogy worthy of a Citizen Kane slow clap, it’s this one… [H/T to No Guts, No Glory] The post Of course there’s an eBay auction for Johnny Manziel signed “air” appeared first on Last Angry Fan.
