|"At least they got the main joint right bruh! I'm cool with that!"|
Well I guess all of the dull sports writers that were trying to sell Manti Te’o to us didn’t have the heart to give him the Heisman too. Johnny “Football” Manziel took the joint to the crib in a red and white wagon with the 12th Man pulling it. The first freshman ever to win the most coveted award in sports didn’t get carjacked like so many of us thought he would on Saturday night.
On Thusday night at the College Football Awards it looked like the fix was definitely in because boyz were just giving Te’o joints that he clearly didn’t deserve. He won the Bednarik Award for the most outstanding defensive player of the year, which he was completely deserving of. Then all of a sudden this dun walks out of the building with the Walter Camp and the Maxwell Awards for the most outstanding player of the year. I’m saying to myself, “They’re about to pull a major heist right in front of everybody.”
It was almost like the kid that’s standing in the toy aisle at Wal-mart and he’s already got the Hot Wheel in his pocket but he’s wants whole race track. However, he’s smart enough to know that he can’t get out of the store with the joint without getting caught. So he leaves with only the car.
The media knew that Johnny Football with 4600 yards and 43 TD’s was the most deserving of the Heisman at the end of the day so they couldn’t finish the robbery that they started on Thursday night. It's like the kid that falls to peer pressure and breaks into old lady Johnson's crib and takes a fork and bounces. He really didn't want to do it but his boyz would look at him funny if he hadn't at least gone in.
Big Props to Johnny Football and the Texas A&M Aggies for taking the Heisman home to College Station for the first time since John David Crow won it in 1957. The 12th Man is rockin’ this morning and I feel sorry for my Sooners in the Cotton Bowl in a few weeks. This young boy is gonna put up career numbers because Oklahoma can't hold water on defense.
I’m just glad to see that the voters had a little integrity and didn’t rip this kid off and give it to a cat with only 103 tackles just because his grandmother and girl passed away on the same day and he found the strength to play through it. It was a very inspiring story and I completely sympathized with him but having an inspirational story doesn’t win Heisman Trophies.
Now is the Heisman a bogus award? Sure it is, because this isn’t basketball where you can truly say that a cat is the best player in the country because in that sport they play both ends of the floor, dribble, shoot and score. In football the best quarterback can’t cover or tackle or vice versa. So it’s all hype on stats but if it’s going to be a hype stat award then Johnny Football should have been the only cat at the ceremony last night because it wasn’t even close.
Holla At Ya Boy!
