All Jack Johnson

from Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider,

Jack Johnson, on how the Buckeye fans have treated a Michigan man: “Oh, they’ve been awesome, actually. I was expecting my fair share of kidding, and I’ve gotten that, but honestly they couldn’t have been nicer. I went to the Michigan – Ohio State game, and everyone’s welcomed me with open arms. It’s pretty overwhelming, actually.”

Johnson, on whether he flies a Michigan flag at home in Columbus: “I’ve got Michigan license plates. I’ll hang my Michigan flag on Football Saturdays. I actually grew up a big Andy Katzenmoyer fan, who was a middle linebacker for Ohio State. I’ve got a huge amount of respect for Ohio State. Everyone’s treated me better than I could’ve asked for.”

People tend to do that when you’re a millionaire.  I know they weren’t very forgiving on me and I honestly didn’t know much about the OSU Michigan rivalry, I was a State fan being from Lansing.  Surprising so much of Columbus doesn’t know where Michigan State is from given how much they hate the whole state in general.  I really like the “We don’t give a shit about the whole state of Michigan, whole state of Michigan, whole state of Michigan, cause we’re from O-Hi-Ooooo”  Classy peeps here.
