Video: Texas A&M players go jousting in locker room

The circus surrounding Johnny Manziel apparently hasn't taken a toll on the morale at Texas A&M's fall camp.

Freshman defensive lineman Tyler Godwin posted a video on Friday of his Aggies teammates -- including Manziel -- jousting in carts in the team's locker room. Commendable? Yes. But the players' technique and dedication could use a little work. I should know. When I was in high school, I worked at a local dry cleaners. Using cleaned band uniforms from a nearby university as shields and long carpet-rollers as lances, our employees took part in jousting competitions between the isles of hanging clothes. Those were intense. These A&M competitions? Not so much.
