Another example of Jonny Gomes' badassedness
My eyes got as big as baseballs and my jaw dropped wide open when I read the article yesterday. Somehow, I had never heard the story before.
Jonny Gomes almost died of a heart attack when he was 22 years old. A freaking heart attack?
The article also tells the story of a car accident that Gomes was involved in when he was in high school. He was riding in the backseat of a car with his best friend when the driver lost control and hit a telephone pole. Gomes’ friend died.
These two instances help explain the fact why Gomes plays the game with such fire and intensity. I also think it’s because he is just a flat-out bad ass.
Go, Jonny go!
