Day 154 Heeeeeere's Johnny

So this isn't the greatest picture I will post this year but it'll still be one of my favourites by the end of the year.

The Johnny Tulip fanclub has well and truly kicked off and its on its way to becoming a global phenomenon, thanks in no small part to World Ball Hockey Championships commentator Kris Abbot (@KrisAbbot on twitter). One simple comment in GB's first game against the Cayman Islands has been enough to catapult the young starlet to fame.
Kris is doing an amazing job of commentating on the games, and I have to admit to being a little gutted that some of the mens games won't be covered by Kris.
Some of the great unintentional (or possibly intentional) one liners he has thrilled the British fans with include, 'Tulip chases his own dump', 'Fanny De Forges is big in the UK', 'Wouldn't run that fast for anything, unless it was a cheeseburger'. I think the important thing is he is enjoying his job, and is enriching the whole experience.

Anyway, enough about Kris, this is supposed to be about Johnny. This is me and the wife getting ready to watch the official opening ceremony.

You can download your own Johnny Tulip mask at (it is quite a large file though) and wear it with pride wherever you go.
