First off, let's just get this out of the way, we think Johnny Manziel is an idiot. We don't think that is up for debate.
We can say the same about Miley Cyrus.
They were born about two weeks apart in 1992. Both 20. Both born into affluent or semi-affluent families. Both idiots. Both 20.
We were idiots when we were 20. I'm sure many of you can relate. But we, at twenty, were not in the spotlight or had a camera on us 24/7. Some of the stuff we did at 20 would be prime fodder for YouTube today.
But we didn't have to deal with that.
We are in no way condoning the behavior of either. Just taking a step back and saying "You were 20 at one time. Would you want what you did then immortalized on a a social network, much less the national media?"
Perspective. That's all we're saying, perspective.
