Johnny Manziel Starts 'The Chop' with FSU Fans at Hollywoood Party

Stop me if you've heard this one: "Johnny Manziel walks out of a bar..."

Granted, that's a story nearly as tired as anything to do with signatures or tantalizing touchdowns, but there is something new to offer: Johnny Football is an equal-opportunity party reveler. 

Thanks to TMZ and the advent of social media, we get to see Manziel perform the Florida State Seminole chop before, we assume, he heads off to bigger lights, fatter paychecks and grander parties. 

Thanks to Twitter user Cate Bevans, we get to see what an extremely happy Manziel looks like. Forget getting all bent out of shape over the Seminole tomahawk chop, because that face should receive all of your energy. 

It's OK, Mr. Football. We all get one mulligan. 

Man, I wish there was video, possibly one with NSFW language. Hey, thanks to ESPN Radio Tallahassee's promotions director Alicia Cross for providing just that with this Instagram video

Forget Flavor Flav, because Manziel is the ultimate hype man. 

Now if you are wondering about the where and when behind all the festivities, TMZ was there to catch the Texas A&M star quarterback as he was coming out of the nightclub. 

Here is the video, featuring a confused Manziel who really just wanted to find out where his buddy on the other side of the phone was. 

According to the report, Manziel was at the Emerson nightclub in Hollywood on Sunday, partying it up with an already excited Florida State contingent. 

As you are no doubt aware, the BCS Championship Game takes place on Monday night at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. The No. 2 Auburn Tigers take on the No. 1 Seminoles, and it's clear who the Aggies QB is pulling for—or at the very least was pulling for on Sunday night. 

If he does stiff arm the NFL and comes back to school, it's probably smart to keep his rooting interest outside the conference.

As TMZ notes, Manziel, who is coming off a come-from-behind win over Duke in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, did manage to toss one big shout out to his fellow Aggies: "I love my teammates—always and forever."

Not done with the classy shout-outs, Manziel tweeted out the following: 

The Houston Chronicle's Brent Zwerneman reports fellow Aggie Ricky Seals-Jones believes Manziel has already left the college life in spirit, stating simply, "Johnny's gone. He’s gone."

If so, you can't blame the kid for taking a victory tour of sorts. He has to get an early push on NFL parties, which we are confident he will enjoy.
