1. QB autographs fan's $100 note

Not often do the world of numismatics and the NFL collide, but they did over the weekend in Cleveland. 

The Cleveland Browns, who've had a rough season on the field, have a particularly polarizing quarterback.

Second-year player Johnny Manziel, who in addition to "Johnny Football" has also adopted the nickname "Money Manziel" for his trademark money sign hand gesture made when celebrating a good play, was spotted signing a $100 note for a fan before Sunday's game against the San Franscico 49ers. 

Manziel, who's been a lightning rod of attention since his college days at Texas A&M for his on-field demeanor and alcohol related off-field issues, said he would stop with all the money celebrations earlier in the year, according to CBS Sports.

According to CSN Bay Area, Manziel signed the note "Money Manziel." So there you have it. 

2. Austria's new silver collector coin is a beauty
