I guess the thing about Big John is he's just one of us. A normal Joe, fortunately gifted with one thing that he also was lucky enough to find, and he's trying to put it to good use. It's kind of like finding out that a guy who was once a garbage collector is able to become one of the top players in the NBA (Larry Bird), or any other number of examples of normal guy makes it big. Isn't that the American way?

Heaven forbid any of us should have cameras and reporters following us our whole lives and reporting on every stupid thing we do. I'm certain it would increase the US suicide rate.
