Apparently for Johnny Manziel, getting ready for football includes punching a friend in the face.
According to chronicler of all-things-after-dark-Manziel TMZ, the former Browns quarterback got into a fight with a friend at a wedding in Hawaii over the weekend.
Apparently, there was some beef between the two which culminated at the rehearsal dinner, though Manziel insisted he wasn’t the instigator. A punch was thrown, the scuffle ended quickly, and no cops were called.
But the report said Manziel sent the recipient of his Hawaiian punch a bottle of something stronger. A bottle of champagne was accompanied by a note which read: “Truly apologize. Should have never done that. Know this won’t make it better, but hope it starts the day off alright.”
Other than “alright” not being a word, it was a noble sentiment, and now the guy has an autographed Manziel apology.
While it might not be a huge deal in and of itself, at a time when he’s vowing to straighten himself out for a possible return to football, it’s yet another small sign that perhaps his road back will be a long one and full of potholes.
