This Johnny Manziel ‘Rise And Fall’ Video Deserves An Oscar

Johnny Manziel has been in the news nonstop lately as he negotiates a deal with the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

A video from a couple months ago has been fired back up to the top of the YouTube streams, and it’s a pretty interesting look at the rise and fall of Johnny Football.

I watched it for the first time this morning. It should probably nominated for an Academy Award, and I don’t say that lightly.

What an emotional ride. I have no idea who made this video, but everything about it was awesome. I am ready for Manziel to skip the CFL, and sign with an NFL team right this moment.

In all seriousness, the “30 for 30” made about Manziel is already going to be crazy. It doesn’t even matter if he never plays football again at this point. His life story is almost too crazy to believe, but we all watched it happen.

Now imagine how crazy it’s going to be if he actually makes it back to professional football. Might be one of the greatest comeback stories we’ve ever had in sports.
