You should read Deadspin's fascinating history of Johnny Manziel's family Published: August 12, 2013

Earlier today the sports blog Deadspin published a lengthy history -mostly citing old clips from Texas newspapers- of the forebears of Johnny Manziel, who is currently caught up in the middle of a controversy concerning whether or not he, as an NCAA student-athlete, signed autographs for money.

Oil, cockfighting and Jack Dempsey all factor in there. Definitely worth the long read. And when you're done feel free to visit Berry Tramel's recent blog post comparing and contrasting Manziel with former Sooner Joe Don Looney.
