Johnny Manziel has had a rough season. His struggles with partying and alcohol abuse have overshadowed his play on the field, and the story got even stranger yesterday when ESPN reported Manziel was seen wearing a blonde wig and a fake mustache at a Las Vegas casino.
Our sources tell us Manziel was at a popular night club on the strip Saturday night. The QB entered wearing a blonde wig, a fake mustache, glasses, and a hoodie.
Manziel introduced himself as “Billy.” He was there into the 3am hour and when it came time to pay the bill, he asked to have it comped because he didn’t bring cash and also didn’t want to put it on his card.
Now, the internet being the internet had some fun with this.
Whoops, that last one is Lance Briggs, wrong football player in a wig joke of the day.
While it’s great to poke fun at Manziel, here’s to hoping he can resolve his struggles and doesn’t have to resort to such bizarre behavior in the future. There’s a talented football player hidden somewhere under all of those personal struggles, and instead of being known as one, he’s starting to become the brunt of jokes.
