Examples of johnny in a Sentence

  1. Hazel Elder:

    JOHNNY WAS THE MAN There was a man named Johnny. Who shared with me his true love story. I learned so much from that wise old man. I am out to sing his final glory! Johnny lived to a ripe old age and live by a daily poker winning plan. With an iron fist, his family he did rule! Together they worked hand in hand in that poker playing land. Johnny was the champion, he was the world's best! It was proven day after day, world wide over. Into the eyes of some wicked men he met. His childhood friends and partners for sure on Johnny they would bet. If he ever needed backing. Funds would always be in abundance. For everyone knew. Johnny was always good, loyal, and true. He loved and played poker and was the first in that hall of fame. When he died people forgot about that old man Johnny. But, I will never forget the man who loved and ruled the tables and made Poker the game it is today!

  2. Michael Reaves/Getty Images:

    I think there's a lot of intrigue there. His performance on the field wasn't very good, on tape. I think, Robert Griffin, a rookie of the year, [I'm] surprised he's out there. Tim Tebow takes a team to the playoffs, there's some surprise that he never came back. You know, Johnny Manziel, he's out there.

  4. Johnny Wowk:

    Around and around Johnny The Walker goes, when he stops no one knows.

  5. Paul Reiser:

    I think that’s part of what makes this show so special and unique, nobody else has it. To be able to use actual footage of Johnny as the show these characters are creating and making every night, it really gives it authenticity… And for me, it was just an extra bonus of joy to go through these clips and pick them out. It was an embarrassment of riches. Most of them I haven’t even seen. A lot of them I remembered, but haven’t watched in 40 years. Not only do you see these guests again, but you can watch Johnny’s skill. He was just so good. He really set the standard.
