Is this Manziel metaphorically beating to his drum? Jamming out to the sound of his own urination represents his vanity. Or, is this just a poorly drawn picture of a 20 year old on the pot?

our master bath toilet has a low illumination light.  And the lid is pneumatic and stays up by itself.  And a built in bidet.  It's like going to/in Europe.  The super toilet leaves me with no excuses.

really a thing? Some guys I knew had a sort of men's group that they invited me to, once. The first thing they did was try to recruit me to pee sitting down. Forever after, in my imagination, the leader-guy was named Chief Sits To Pee. I mean, I got a wife and a daughter, and they get after me if I pee on the floor. So. . . I pee carefully! And if I am drunk I sit so I don't fall over. End of story!

I guess I get the point, but it is pretty weak and, frankly, pretty offensive.  

Manziel is a jerk; I don't think bringing in gender/sexuality issues, which is clearly the thrust of the image, is worth it.

I love ESPN.  I was just watching actually.  DId you see the bit about Jared Sullinger?  I guess he got into a big fight with his girl, roughed her up a bit and smashed her cell phone.  I hope the young lady was exaggerating, I know that Trey and he are close and that Jared comes from a good family.

you love ESPN?

They do this to anyone who is the least bit successful. They make you hate Manziel, Tebow, Farve, etc. They latch on and run with any story until your internal views just break down and you agree. They bring them up constantly so that subliminally, you start to hate someone who had zero impact on your emotions before hand.

The line I kept hearing, "We could have sat here and talked about how good Johnny played, but now we have to talk about how he got a personal foul penalty, and it really sucks." In which case, YOU CAN JUST TALK ABOUT HOW GOOD HE PLAYED! Or you can give the same coverage over all the personal foul penalties called over the weekend. You control what you put on there, so do NOT blame a 20 year old kid for your selfish ways.

There is no reason why Johnny Manziel should be on the TV for 25% of every day because he said a swear word towards another player. They are no longer a sports channel. They are TMZ for athletes.

The little TMZ stuff just makes it all a little more interesting. I know it's not the cool opinion t have, but I LOVE ESPN...The entire concept of the 24 hour sports news cycle. Maybe it's different for me because I've lived half my life(to this point) without it, but yeah. If the kids are asleep, the wife isn't watching some mind rot or another, and there's nothing good on BTN I'm probably watching ESPN.
