Johnny Manziel and 10 Athletes Who Love to Party, Win or Lose

Believe it or not, athletes are people too and just like us, they love to party. The problem that some of these athletes find themselves in is the fact that they like to party whether they are victorious or a loser at the end of whatever competition it is that they are involved in.

Whether they are a professional athlete or a star on the collegiate level, such as our star subject Johnny Manziel, they have to be careful when it comes to what they are doing off the field and/or behind the scenes. One thing that these guys all seem to forget is that since they have been blessed with unbelievable athletic talent, they have to put up with the fact that there will forever be someone right in their face with a camera at their side, especially when they are out on the town tying one on for the evening. Johnny Manziel is the king of not caring about what he's gotten himself into and who is witnessing him do so. If you are an athlete who likes to party whether you win or lose, Manziel is probably your mentor; and just like him, you probably won't be able to learn from your mistakes.

Being a star athlete involves a lot of hard work and sacrifice. If you want to be the best, you have to train like the best. I guess this goes for drinking as well because this list of athletes who love to hit the bottle are not the guys you want to be playing beer pong or flip cup against ... because you won't stand a chance.

Let's face it, Nick Swisher went back to Cleveland so he could make his way back to his Ohio State days in Columbus and crash whatever party he can.

Alexander Ovechkin is known to rack up some serious bar tabs. He is Russian. That means he loves his vodka.
