Johnny Manziel continues his parade of fun, literally, at Mardi Gras.
How can you not like this kid? Still living life the way he plays football!
I’m sure that this, along with him throwing up the Hook ‘Em Horns sign at a concert, will once again upset a few people, but really Manziel isn’t doing anything different than 99% of other college kids.
