New defensive end Ricky Jean Francois joined ESPN 980 today to discuss his thoughts on the upcoming season and his transition into becoming a Redskin.
First, however, he had to relay the feedback he received after asking fans on Twitter what “HTTR” meant.
“I caught grief for that,” Jean Francois said. “I didn’t know, but believe me, I know it now. I know it now. I was like, this is my first time, I’ve got to learn the coaches, [what] ‘DMV,’ ‘HTTR’ stands for. There’s a lot of things I’ve got to learn.”
Who can blame him? But for all of his confusion regarding abbreviations, he at least helped clarify the fans’ puzzlement regarding the pronunciation of his name.
His middle name, Jean, should be pronounced like John, “almost like putting a ‘Z’ in it,” he said.
As for Jean Francois’ peanut butter jelly dance, his trademark move, which we covered last week, an important question was finally answered. What peanut butter is best?
Simple: “Jif… Crunchy.”
He also will be making sure that Redskins’ fans return to loving the classic PB&J sandwich.
“They’ve got to,” Jean Francois said. “If I’m coming to the nation, they’ve got to adopt it. It might take a minute for them to adjust to but they’ll love it after a point. I had to do that in Indianapolis and everybody loved it. So I’ve got to get the Redskins fans to do it, too.”
And just in case you were wondering if he is that serious about peanut butter jelly sandwiches:
“I even put [Jif] in my safe,” he said. “That’s how much I love it.”
