Johnny Manziel spent NFL draft night drinking about a half dozen water bottles in anticipation of being selected. He, and many others, thought he would be a top-10 pick, but ended up falling all the way to No. 22 to the Cleveland Browns. It may seem like a bad break for Johnny, but Cleveland fans are showing him just how much they love him there.
Whenever the city of Cleveland gets a big-time star, they shower him with love until he leaves them heartbroken. Okay, maybe that was just LeBron James, but the entire city crumbled when he announced he would be playing for the Miami Heat.
Okay, that’s beside the point. Manziel has been shown so much love since getting drafted. People have been buying his jersey in high numbers and season ticket sales skyrocketed following the first round of the NFL draft.
One Cleveland-based t-shirt company, Fresh Brewed Tees, has developed a pretty awesome “money” t-shirt that honors the new Browns [backup] quarterback.

This is pretty cool for the reason that it’s Johnny’s signature celebration and the picture looks exactly like him.
You have to believe that these things will be sold like hotcakes and it’ll only be a matter of time before Johnny Football takes Cleveland by storm — eventually becoming the mayor.
The Johnny Cleveland era has begun and the entire city is behind the young QB.
