Why do I find the cartoon Pinky and the Brian amusing? A weird feeling comes over you watching these lab rats and their extensive plans to take over the world.
Reminds me of lifting weights and training. Everyday we go into the gym looking to get bigger, stronger and faster and progress is slow.
To the Pinky and Brain’s of the world. I offer you, Talk To Me Johnnie.
This is my site to answer all the question that are submitted to me over time. For the last 10 years I have been playing in the NFL and for the last year I been growing CF Football, and have been flooded with questions. Everything from training, food, equipment, cars to likes and dislikes. I am using this site as my voice to talk about things that interest me and interest you.
Send your questions.
I will start with the first one: Where does Talk To Me Johnnie come from?
“Company leader to Raven….acknowledge….company leader to Raven, talk to me, Johnnie” – Rambo
My good friend, Brad Scioli, former Indianapolis Colt and Philadelphia native, used to text this to me during the season. During football season you become so focused on playing, practice and survival that you almost check out for 7 months. Kind of like Rambo coming back and going to look for his friends. So it became the universal code for I haven’t seen you in a while, how are things?. And it grew from there..so when I was working on creating this site it seemed natural.
I remember when I was a kid and we would go the video store to get a movie (seems crazy now) I would always be drawn to three movie covers, Bachelor Party with Tom Hanks, Orwell’s 1984 (this was pre-1984 so I thought it was about what was going to place in the next year or two) and First Blood.
Rambo, John J. was the anti-hero. I always did root for the bad guy in movies.
