There's Only One Small Problem With A Drunken Johnny Manziel Saying He's Living With Von Miller...He Isn't.
YahooSports- “I’m living out here with my guy, Von Miller,” Manziel told TMZ on Saturday night, via ESPN.com. “Everybody knows Von Miller. Super Bowl MVP, Von Miller, my brother. I’m living with him right now. We’re getting our lives together, bro.”
There’s another problem with Manziel’s story, bro. It’s apparently not true.
Mike Klis of 9News.com reports that Manziel and Miller are currently not living together. Per Klis, Miller is living in housing provided by ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. And ABC’s Dancing with the Stars is not providing housing to Manziel.
This doesn’t change the fact that Miller has openly lobbied, on multiple occasions, for the Broncos to add Manziel. But if anyone thinks Miller would be able to take Manziel under Miller’s wing and get Manziel to truly get his life together, bro, think again.
Well, at least now we know how it is going to tragically end for Johnny Manziel. He's going to come stumbling home to Von Miller's house wasted to find Von Miller who just returned from the Dancing With The Stars house. He's going to inevitably get kicked out on the street, and he'll accidentally wander into oncoming traffic. I think that's a pretty poetic ending for someone that was given room and board by the reigning Super Bowl MVP, and immediately decided it was a good idea to drunkenly interview himself street side while hanging out with his homeless friend. You would think that maybe, JUST MAYBE receiving a verbal endorsement from someone as successful as Von Miller would get Johnny Football to save his drunkenness for behind closed doors, but apparently not. Not only is he not avoiding cameras, but now he's actually sticking them in his own face. I suppose that's one way to attack the story before the story attacks you.
I always kind of maintained the notion that someone that's only 23 years old can't be an alcoholic, but that's before Johnny Manziel drank his way out of Cleveland....and then upped his alcohol consumption. I guess you can kiss that theory goodbye. Not saying he can't sneak in one last bender before he gets his life together bro, but maybe he should have sobered up before declaring that was his intention. Seems a bit odd to talk about your sobriety while uncontrollably swaying back and forth and eventually collapsing on the shoulder of a club promoter. Although it's not as odd as an accomplished player letting a known 23 year old drunk live at his place while he is not there, if that is indeed what's currently taking place. Call it intuition, but I think I am starting to have my doubts...
