How long at SportsRadio 610: Since Summer, 2012

The coolest person at 610: Without question, it is John McClain.  Nobody is better at what he does and has been doing it for as long as he has.  PLUS….he’s a movie star.  It’s not even close really…

What I love about Houston: The people.  H-town has some of the nicest most hospitable people you will find anywhere.  I also like that people here still exchange simple pleasantries.  People here aren’t so busy that they can’t say hello to you.

My favorite four letter word: SEXY.

Favorite people to interview: The ones who are the most sincere/real/funny and honest.   Drew Bledsoe, Andy Roddick, James Carville, John Witherspoon and Marcus Allen come to mind.

My experience:

  • Played Linebacker in NFL 10 years
  • Played in 4 Super Bowls and won 3 of them.
  • I have been doing TV/Radio off and on for the last 8 yrs since retiring from the NFL (I was co-host on the pre and postgame shows for CBS when I covered the Patriots).
  • Adjunct Professor for two years at Suffolk University (Boston).

The teams I followed growing up: Houston Oilers, Houston Rockets and the Houston Astros.  Since I lived/played in Boston for 17 years, I follow the Patriots, Celtics and Red Sox.

Signature phrases: 1. There in-lies the rub.  2.  That cake don’t bake.

Favorite sport experiences:

  • Going to Houston Oiler games with my dad growing up.
  • Watching Akeem Olajuwan win back-to-back championships.
  • Meeting Earl Campbell at “Fan Fest” last year hosted by SportsRadio 610.
  • HC Bill McCartney offering me a scholarship to play for the University of Colorado my senior year of HS.
  • Beating Michigan at the “Big House” in 1994 with a “Hail Mary” pass from Kordell Stewart to Michael Westbrook.
  • Having Bill Parcells draft me in the 2nd Round of the 1995 draft.
  • Winning Superbowl 36 vs. the St. Louis Rams.
  • Playing in my first ever Superbowl in 1997 (SB 31) vs. the Green Bay Packers.
  • Being honored by the Patriots at “Ted Johnson Night” at Gillette Stadium in Dec 2005.
