Happy Gilmore is the inspiring tale of a failed hockey player-turned-golfer who serves as an upstanding role model by trying to win in order to keep his loving grandmother in her home. The movie stars none other than that compassionate, emotive member of the cinematic guild, Adam Sandler.
OK, so most folks know that Happy Gilmore is far from any sort of inspiring tale featuring an upstanding role model. However, most fans probably don’t realize that the movie, still arguably Sandler’s best work (along with Billy Madison of course), was released back in 1996.
When was Texas A&M redshirt freshman sensation Johnny Manziel even born?
Luckily, some delinquent-ish older sibling/cousin/babysitter/parent managed to sneak young Johnny Football a view of this classic, or the Aggies quarterback stumbled upon it himself.
Either way, Happy Gilmore is awesome and so is Manziel’s response to Shooter McGavin, that rascal who will just do anything to win, including eating — you know what he’s eating — for breakfast.
Manziel has not been allowed to speak to the media very much throughout his breakout campaign in 2012.
So, Johnny, if we’ve broken your cover a little bit here, sorry about exposing your Twitter handle … and your nine iron.
