Johnny Manziel’s vacation in Las Vegas during Memorial Day weekend, which was diligently documented, was worth millions in favor of city tourism, according to casino manager.
The executive who preferred to remain anonymous commented for Las Vegas Review-Journal and the gambling news: “Look at how much media surrounded him since he came to town. He’s been all over ESPN and social media for three days. He’s definitely famous, more famous than I thought.”
Moreover: “It was like when Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods came to town. It meant something. People love a showman. People love to follow that kind of guy. He’s Johnny Football – and he’s a nice guy.”
Manziel’s vacation included visit to the MGM Grand with Dana White, Ultimate Fighting Championships president, as well as party at Surrender nightclub in Encore Casino, which follows all US gambling laws.
It is very important that his outside the field life hasn’t affected negatively his performance, at least according to his teammate Nate Burleson: “He’s got moxy. He’s whippin’ the ball around. He’s not cocky. He’s locked in – you can tell he wants it.”
