Tyrell Johnson Likes Cheese Dip, Homoerotic Comic Book Movies, Lucille Ball

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.
