There might not be a collegiate athlete in the country who enjoys his celebrity status more than Johnny Manziel. The Heisman Trophy winner has been living it up the past several months. A day after lighting up Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl, he hit up an Oklahoma casino and showed off his wealth. Manziel shared a photo on his Instagram account Saturday of himself and two others at WinStar World Casino. He was seen fanning a stack of bills, and he captioned the photo, “Casino ballin!” It didn’t take long for WinStar to realize they had the best college football player in the country in the house, and they welcomed him via Twitter: Heyyyyyyy!! Have fun and good luck! “@jmanziel2: Winstar wassssuppp!” — WinStar World Casino (@WinStarWorld) January 6, 2013 Of course, any time a photo of a college football player with cash in hand emerges, questions of potential NCAA violations follow. The 20-year-old redshirt freshman quarterback addressed those issues as well as questions about whether he old enough to be gambling: Nothing illegal about being 18+ in a casino and winning money…KEEP HATING! — Johnny Manziel (@JManziel2) January 6, 2013 The best part of all is that Manziel received some empathy from a fellow teen superstar athlete, Bryce Harper: @jmanziel2 Yea I know what you mean! #youngcrew — Bryce Harper (@Bharper3407) January 6, 2013 Let’s just recap all the awesomeness in which Manziel has indulged the past few months: Doing the Top 10 for David Letterman Sitting courtside for a Heat-Mavericks game Golfing with the Jonas Brothers Hanging with his hot girlfriend It must be good to be Johnny Football.
