Manziel Pleads Guilty Monday to a Misdemeanor

Color me not surprised that Johnny Manziel pleaded guilty Monday to a misdemeanor after a 2012 bar fight that apparently no one knew about.

Credit Texas A&M's sports information department for doing a great job of covering up this story.

According to the New York Times, Manziel admitted he failed to identify himself to police following the altercation. 

Naturally, the charges were dismissed. Hey, Mel Brooks said at one time, "It's good to be the king" and who should know better than Johnny Football?

You win a Heisman, get to go to major sporting events, party with hot chicks, get the Mannings to cover for you when you chuck their camp, and have criminal charges dropped because of who you are.

Not to mention your coaches pretty much let you have the run of the program and let you do what you want. And why not? Without you, they would struggle. Again, must be nice to be the king.  

Don't you wish you didn't have to take responsibility for your actions, as well? 

Yep, it must be good to be Johnny Manziel, the king of college football.

For now.

Ask Maurice Clarett, et al, about how long it can last.
