That’s Johnny Manziel at a Super Bowl party holding what looks to be a cold beer. The young lady on the right is CBS 42 (Birmingham) reporter Alex Corddry ( @ACorddry). She ran into Scooby in New Orleans on Saturday at what looks to be the HDNet party where Manziel was hanging with Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel.
Before anyone gets crazy over Scoob hitting a cold one at Mark Cuban’s party, let’s take a look at Louisiana drinking laws for the under-21 crowd.
One can enter most bars at 18 years of age but must be 21 years old to purchase or consume alcohol. Also, it is legal in the state of Louisiana for a legal parent or guardian to purchase alcoholic beverages for their underaged child.
In other words, Manziel in New Orleans is a worst-case scenario for Texas A&M’s push to make Manziel a more responsible Heisman winner. You might remember the conversation school officials had with Scooby and his parents after winning the trophy.
A&M athletic director Eric Hyman said in January:
“It’s (about) education, and we’ve got to help the family and Johnny with the transition into being a Heisman award winner,” Hyman said. “There are things you have to learn, and we have to help him with that.”
• Never have your beer bottle in a photo at a Super Bowl party
• Never allow someone to snap a photo of you fanning cash at a casino
• Never hold a styrofoam cup on a French Quarter balcony with the Duck Dynasty crew.
• Never stand on a Bourbon Street balcony
There’s obviously much more training that needs to be done by the A&M front office. Luckily for us, the chat went in one ear and out the other.
We love watching this guy party at the Super Bowl or wherever. He’s a pageviews machine. A&M fans will ultimately think BC is picking on Johnny Cold One. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Yes, you’ve told us his family is loaded. His parents can buy him beers. He can gamble.
We love it all. Please don’t stop being Johnny Football.

"It's OK,'' said Nowitzki, who has missed the last two Mavs games with the injury. "I'll give it a go.''

I'll give it a go tonight," Nowitzki told the team's website after Monday morning's shootaround. "It's going to be a little tight I guess, but if I wait till this is...
It seems so long ago that the Dallas Mavericks took down the Miami Heat and claimed their role as NBA champions. Since then it has all been down hill. Their record last season was only good enough for the seventh seed in the Western Conference and they did not last long in the playoffs, getting swept out by Oklahoma City.
This year it is going to take a miracle turnaround for the...
The Portland Trail Blazers have begun to establish a bit of a history with the Dallas Mavericks. Whether it’s Game 4 of the 2011 playoffs, LaMarcus Aldridge‘s game-winner in 2012 or the most recent matchup that involved both an improbable comeback and a last-second shot in Portland’s favor.
Matchup: Portland (25-23) @ Dallas Mavericks (20-28)
Wow, what a difference a day can make. Dallas is on the 3rd of a 4 game road trip and so far had not done so well after losing 2 close ones to both Portland and Golden State. Just for the record, both of those games Dallas should have won.
After seeing a lot of the media writing after the Portland game, it’s nice to know that I’m not the only one who felt that the play at the...

OKLAHOMA CITY -- When Dallas has taken on Oklahoma City this year, the Mavericks haven't looked like a team fighting to reach .500. In the two previous matchups, the Mavericks lost both, but the Thunder had to go into overtime each time. However, the Mavs reverted back to form of sorts Monday in the teams' third meeting. The Thunder dominated from the opening tap and rolled...

According to a source with knowledge of West’s thinking, the troubled combo guard has decided...
