Austrian kicker imitates Johnny Manziel

Johnny Manziel is an athlete for whom not only Americans own a fascination.
The Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback has a trademark "handshake" -- throwing his hands up and rubbing his fingers together to represent money. He did it multiple times during Texas A&M games, when he walked on stage at the NFL Draft after being selected by the Browns and even while making an appearance at a Cleveland Indians game.
But now, his go-to gimmick has a new market that may surprise you -- Austrian football and the European (American) football's equivalent of the Super Bowl. Making it even better is the player showing off is none other than a kicker, Austria's Chris Kappel.
From the accounts of Klemko, this was an epic game that should not have been missed.
This happened at halftime.
Then this in overtime.
Said Manziel-inspired kicker nailed a big field goal in double overtime to atone for an earlier mistake.
However, Manziel has to hope he does not suffer this same end emotion at Cleveland's FirstEnergy Stadium.
Marking my calendar for next year's European final.
