The 2014 National Football League season is just around the corner and already the Expectation Game is in full swing. Football fans are well aware of the expectation game and how it’s played: each season you either get your hopes up for something great (and get disappointed) or aren’t expecting much and get pleasantly surprised.

Video: Johnny Manziel flips off the Washington bench

Seahawks Marshawn Lynch Arrested for DUI in Oakland

July 17, 2012

First off, no, we don’t know what his exact BAC was, other than it was over the legal limit of .08%. (And likely not enought to qualify him for the World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings.) How much over could impact what Lynch is charged with and the punishment handed down by the team and/or the league. Lynch, who played high school football in Oakland and is college ball at Cal…
