Johnny Manziel autographed air listed on eBay


Last Saturday, reigning Heisman winner Johnny Manziel caused quite a stir against Rice by signing air after making a big play.

Well, because we live in a capitalist society, someone tried to cash in on the dubious moment by selling the autographed air on eBay. Unfortunately, it never officially sold because it was removed not too longer after the bidding opened up.

However, thanks to the folks at The Big Lead, we have a screen shot of the listing, as well as a description of the air, which is comedic gold.
Unfortunately, and unknowingly, for the defender, air is public domain. As soon as Manziel autographed that air it became anyone’s to grab. 
That’s where I come in. I was at the game and watched this whole scenario unfold. I watched as the autographed air drifted in my direction. After fighting off several fans, I managed to take the autographed air into my mouth…and hold it there until the game ended. 
Upon returning home I blew Manziel’s autograph (along with a .08) into a small canister where it remains. 
Since eBay will not let me sell air, THIS AUCTION IS FOR THE CANISTER and the autographed air will be included for free. 
*Please note. Johnny has enough trouble with autographing items. So please know I did not pay him anything for this air. It was simply air drifting through the public domain where I was lucky enough to fill my mouth with it. 
Also, for those of you who are curious, Manziel’s autograph tasted like a mix of strippers and Swisher Sweets. Delicious!
Amazingly, The Big Lead reports that 17 bids were placed before eBay finally pulled the listing from its site. My guess is that the NCAA was mad they weren't getting a cut of the cash.

Nice try, "babiesrus2012."
