Wow. We’re going to need you for 5 minutes and 22 seconds for a pretty spectacular interview the pride of Binger, Oklahoma, did with Paul Brothers from The Score (a Canadian TV network). Never heard of it? Ask Joey Votto, betcha he has :)
Anyway, Deadspin.com and others are making a big deal about some relatively incoherent babble from Johnny in the first 30 seconds or so of the interview. But we suggest watching the interview in its entirety (below) because it’s rather entertaining and Johnny was totally sharp (and Johnny) for most of it. Plus, it’s important to note that Johnny just recently had hip replacement surgery, and who wouldn’t be a little loopy if there’s pain medication being consumed. So Deadspin’s bashing seems unnecessary.
Doesn’t mean you shouldn’t watch it thO …(MG)
