Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Ernest Hemingway, Marilyn Monroe, George Patton and Eleanor Roosevelt. These are just some of the historical figures to appear on the cover of Time Magazine in the past. And now we can add Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel to that list.

paying college athletes is certainly something that should be discussed
on a national level, but at the same time, I hardly think it's the most

to do what you have to do to get people to buy your magazine, and in the
United States putting Manziel on the cover will do a better job of that
than photos of what's been happening in Syria, that's for sure.
And I'm sure it'll make somebody on television mad. - By Tom Fornelli
