JT comment

In a recent interview, the guy who used to wear 99 was asked a silly question, and gave an amusing answer:

Have you ever bought something goofy off a TV ad and what was it?

I went out one night in Miami, I was young, my rookie year. And I came home, had a long night, watching TV, and they had these scissors that would cut a quarter, cut anything. And I don't know why I bought them, but I bought them. And then I broke my arm that year, I got the surgery. The team went away. And the day after the surgery, they put the cast on so tight, and it was swelling, it was killing me, I thought I was going to die. And I'm sitting on the couch, I'm like in tears, I'm holding my hand above my head, and I was like, "Those scissors I got!" So I got the scissors and I cut the cast off. I had them for a long time, too. But they worked. And I got something else free with them, like blade sharpeners. I walked in the training room Monday, and I opened the door, and I just threw my cast on the floor, and I'm holding my arm up and there's still blood coming out of my arm. They're like, 'How the hell did you cut that off!' And I was like, 'I was drunk one night and I got these scissors.'"
