Johnny Manziel's wild Austin weekend: Kicked out of one frat party, welcomed to another
The interwebs are all atwitter with sightings of Texas A&M sophomore quarterback Johnny Manziel in Austin over the weekend.
According to social media, Manziel got kicked out of a frat party at the University of Texas in Austin on Friday. Curry Shoff uploaded a video on YouTube showing a person he says is Manziel in a pink shirt dodging debris on his way out of a patio party.
In the video, onlookers shout obscenities and there's light applause as the person purported to be Manziel exits the party through a gate. Deadspin is already on the case, digging up Twitter evidence to tie Manziel to the Austin party scene on the night in question.
In addition to tweets from Shoff (which blast Manziel for drinking Keystone Light), University of Texas student Lydia Messina also claims to have been at the party with Johnny Football.
But it looks like the brothers at Phil Gamma Delta (Fiji) were more accommodating. Deadspin also tracked down Manziel at the Fiji Island party on Saturday where he wasn't asked to leave. But he was oddly wearing a Tim Tebow New York Jets jersey. (See tweets below.)
Meanwhile, Manziel's Twitter feed had been silent since July 18, when he thanked his fans and fellow Aggies for their support in the wake of his dismissal from the Manning Passing Academy. It was rumored that Manziel was too hungover to participate in the elite camp run by Archie, Cooper, Peyton and Eli Manning. Manziel denied that characterization, claiming he simply overslept.
Manziel broke his 10-day Twitter fast on Sunday to share a snarky message with his 400,000 followers.

In light of his recent party choices, one has to wonder whether or not Manziel's longhorn tattoo is really fake after all.
