Thanks to Johnny Manziel – who more than earned his nickname “Johnny Football” this weekend by leading the Texas A&M football team to a victory over then No. 1-ranked Alabama – the Aggies have had a banner year during their inaugural run in the SEC.
They’re 8-2 (5-2 SEC), No. 8 in the BCS standings, have a legitimate Heisman contender and were named the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl National Team of the Week, as selected by the Football Writers Association All-America Committee on Monday, following the 29-24 win over a team some pundits were seriously arguing could compete in the NFL before the matchup.
It’s a bitter pill to swallow for the fan bases of their former Big 12 compadres, who thought that the team without cheerleaders had made another horrible decision in joining the rough-and-tumble SEC – where they were sure to get pummeled regularly and would be lucky to be bowl eligible.
Thanks to Manziel, new head coach Kevin Sumlin and a defense that somehow found itself in the biggest game of the season, however, the Aggies are on a high after winning their highest ranked road victory in program history (a win over No. 6 Penn State in State College in 1979 was the previous) and have only Division I-AA Sam Houston State standing in the way of their ninth victory of the season this weekend.
In other words it is party time at – for now – Texas’ finest football school.
That said we don’t want to let things get out of hand. One alleged Aggie fan did just that at the New Orleans airport recently. I’ll say alleged, because real fans don’t represent the things they love by being an ass. On top of that my Aggie friends who have seen the video have said that the joker in this video will never embody the spirit of the school – even if he somehow managed to stop being stupid long enough to attend it.
And with that intro I introduce to the worst fan in America – and one who clearly doesn’t have the same athletic ability or footwork of his idol Johnny Football (warning NSFW language):
