For months Texas A&M quarterback Jonny Manziel would not speak to the media.  However, on Monday afternoon, he spoke to the media for the first time in an open forum answering any questions thrown his way.  Here are 10 things we learned about this impressive quarterback:   

1) He thinks the nickname Johnny Football is “extremely funny.” In fact, he doesn’t see himself as Johnny Football rather he sees himself as Jonathan Manziel, a small-town guy from Kerville, Texas.

2) As a high school senior, he visited TCU several times but never received an official offer.

3) When he would create a player on EA Sports NCAA football game, he would be bigger and taller to pad the stats.

4) When playing this year’s rendition of EA Sports NCAA football, he usually plays with UTSA because he has friends on the team.

5) Manziel’s father talks with John David Crow, Texas A&M’s only Heisman winner, on a regular basis.

6) Favorite video game QB—Michael Vick.

7) Favorite QBs on the field—John Elway and Doug Flutie.

8) Favorite play of the 2012 season—last TD against Alabama.

9) Considers Tyler and Kerville, Texas as his hometowns.

10)  Loss against Florida actually gave him confidence that he and his team can hang in the SEC.

In the words of coach Kevin Sumlin, Manziel is a “tremendous competitor” and “tremendous leader” on-and-off the field.  As the team prepares for its upcoming bowl game, the redshirt freshman could make history taking home the Heisman trophy on December 8, 2013.

    But without taking proper guidance from a Yoga instructor, this DVD should not be used as the self-help
    tool of learning. ‘Just as nanotechnology has the potential
    to send nano particles within the body system to seek out
    and treat afflicted parts, pranayam in yoga sends oxygen to the remotest parts inside the body which need oxygen for cure,’
    guru Swami Ramdev said. To receive Free Yoga videos, Podcasts,

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
