Vikings rookie safety Tyrell Johnson took time out from the grind of OTAs to talk to Bob Sansevere of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press.  The interview was largely one of those getting-to-know-you pieces that can be used for future trivia bits assuming Tyrell sticks around long enough.  Among the topics discussed:  What Tyrell would want for his last meal:

I’d want my last meal to be cheese dip. I love cheese dip. I’d wash it down with grape Kool-Aid. I know Kool-Aid and cheese dip don’t mix. But minus the heartburn, that’d be what I want.

A lot of people would go for something elaborate as their last meal on earth – crowned rack of lamb or elephant stew or something – but not Tyrell…give him some cheese dip and grape Kool-Aid and he can go out happy, if slightly gassy.

Sansevere also asked Tyrell about his favorite movie:

My favorite movie? I really like 300 a lot. And I like Apocalypto. That’s one of my favorites.

I don’t want to start rumors, but Tyrell seems to enjoy movies featuring buff men running around in skimpy clothes.  I guess he likes those movies for the action and killing.  Sure.  We’ll go with that.

Next Tyrell names his favorite actor and actress:

Jack Nicholson is one of my favorite actors. Actress? A lot of guys like Halle Berry, but not for the acting part. My favorite actress is Lucille Ball.

I had no idea the younger generation was even aware of Lucy, much less into her work.  That’s kind of refreshing.  All-in-all, I’d say Tyrell is an interesting cat.  Slightly gay and not that developed in his culinary tastes, but interesting.
