Boise State's Ian Johnson: Touchdown Maker, Crochet Master
ESPN inadvertently provided opponent trash-talk fodder late in the broadcast after spotlighting Johnson's unusual, very un-football hobby: crochet.
Apparently Johnson is a world class crochet knitter, as his completed wares are wildly popular all over town, selling as quickly as he can produce them. ESPN reporter Erin Andrews showed off one of Johnson's brown knit women's caps to the broadcast audience and modeled it briefly. He also makes and sells men's beanies.
An unspecified "leading crochet magazine" has also apparently tracked him down for a story.
Does crochet qualify as a fallback if that football career doesn't work out?
