Johnny Manziel’s Cleveland Browns Jersey Is the Best-Selling Jersey in the League (Pics)
I guess it’s not surprising, but it’s a little…ok…it’s a little surprising that Johnny Manziel‘s jersey is the best-selling up to this point in the fiscal year. It’s also kind of cute.
It’s not cute because Johny Manziel is a great dude or anything. He seems like a fun guy who is making a little too much of his time in the spotlight, but he’s not murdering people in Connecticut or driving drunk or anything. It’s cute because the broken down fan base of the Cleveland Browns probably has a lot to do with the success of his jersey. The Browns have been so bad for so long that they’re throwing they’re hopes and dreams behind this kid, which is a little analogous to the people in the desert who are so thirsty that they drink sand.
The runners-up were all quarterbacks as well with Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick, and Peyton Manning coming in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, respectively.
Perhaps even more surprising is that openly gay player Michael Sam has the 6th best selling jersey. That isn’t surprising because he’s gay, but because he might not even make the St. Louis Rams, coming in as the 249th pick.
We tried to call Johnny Manziel to congratulate him, but his phone wasn’t getting good reception, possibly because it was just a big stack of dollar bills:
