    I spoke to John Randle at work!

    Just thought I'd relay an interesting story.
    I work for a very large insurance company and guess whose name pops up across my screen?
    John Randle.
    At first, I just thought it was a coincidence until I commented on all of the nice cars on his policy and he told me he used to "play professional ball".


    "Wait a minute, is this THE John Randle!?!?"

    He was a very nice and polite as I told him how much I used to love watching him sack QBs.
    I couldn't believe I was sitting there talking to one of my boyhood sports idols.

    thats awesome..i thought his appearance on "pros vs joes" was pretty funny..still talking hilarious trash and smacking people around
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Youtube doesn't have any good quality copies of that commercial.
    I will have to do some more digging, but here is the best I found on YT.
