TMZ — Johnny Manziel was involved in a fistfight at a fancy Hawaiian resort the night before his friend’s wedding, TMZ Sports has learned. …
We’re told things had been heated between the guys for a while — but it all came to a head at the rehearsal dinner.
Sources connected to Manziel tell us the QB felt like he was being hounded by the other man. We’re told Johnny was adamant he was not the instigator.
But things escalated … and at one point during the altercation Manziel struck the other guy in the face. …
But get this … the next day, the other guy in the fight got a surprise from room service — a bottle of champagne and a note that read, “Truly apologize. Should have never done that. Know this won’t make it better, but hope it starts the day off alright.”
It was signed by Johnny Manziel.
I haven’t been including Johnny Manziel around these parts much lately because what is the point? You could literally post about him daily because he’s producing blog fodder every waking hour. But at some point it gets redundant. He’s like Amy Winehouse toward the end, where you wonder if it’s just better to wait until the inevitable overdose happens, then recap all the insane, self-destructive hijinks instead of trying to keep up.
That said, the one person who is not in the wrong here is Manziel. If you invite Johnny Football to your wedding rehearsal dinner or pick an argument with Johnny Football at your friend’s wedding rehearsal dinner, you have no right to act surprised when Johnny Football ruins said ruins said wedding rehearsal dinner.
It’s what he does. And blaming him is like jumping off a pier and blaming the ocean because your clothes got wet. It’s going to the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona and blaming the bull when you get gored. These friends of his walked into the Johnny Manziel pit at the zoo, past all the warning signs and over the security fence, then tried to act surprised one of them got mauled.
So this story won’t even make his obituary. Maybe the next one will. Either way, it shouldn’t be long now.
