The New York Times has a 3-page article on Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel and his colorful family. The article starts with a story about Manziel’s father fighting another kid every day until his grandmother made the two boys fight in the yard to settle their differences. Then they casually drop in this gem.

"Yes, John Paul was a Manziel. Like his father, Big Paul, who claims he was the cockfighting world champion in 1983."

Meh, listened to him being interviewed today.

He seems like a good guy, and it's not him that's annoying, it's the people that prop him up.

I know some boys in Vernon Parish who may have something to say about the supposed cock fighting title of '83...

So, how do USCe fans feel about this? Mascot cruelty?
