In the months since Johnny Manziel won the Heisman, most of his life has been subject to scrutiny and ridicule.
But ESPN analyst Joe Tessitore started a conversation about one of the lesser talked about parts of Manziel's world during College Football Live on Wednesday when he said people should focus on Manziel’s football skills instead of his “celebrity and VIP-ness.”
C’mon, channel your inner 12-year-old and say “VIP-ness” fast. Yeah, he just said that. It's OK to giggle.
Of course, Tessitore was referring to Manziel’s spotlight, which has been courtside at NBA games, the Super Bowl and hanging out with the likes of LeBron James, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, and not his nether region, but it was really a poor choice of a made-up-word when discussing Texas A&M’s starting quarterback.
But don’t worry Joe, this isn’t the first time that word has been mistaken for something else.
See, it happens.
