History

COMMUNITY REPORTS
The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.

Isaac “Ike” Johnson was born to a blue-collar, working class white father and second-generation Chinese immigrant mother. Johnson is a lifelong athlete and can often be found going for morning jogs outside of team training.

Like all of us, he is from Chicago. His jersey number is 779.

Anticapitalist Beliefs

Johnson is sometimes referred to as “Comrade Ike” due to his involvement in local organizing and strong negative feelings about capitalism. Johnson is known for his employment and union-forming efforts at several local businesses including Big Barnabas Roseheart's Olde-Style Boxing Glove Manufactory, as well as for assisting in mutual aid projects across Chicago, often arriving to games directly after his shifts. When asked how he finds the time for these activities while also being a first responder and professional athlete, Johnson simply responded, “Time is a means of production and I am seizing it.”

Although he was already a self-identified leftist when he began playing in the ILB, Johnson’s communist sentiments have only grown since becoming a Siphon at the end of Season 9. In regards to this, Johnson is quoted as having said, “Blooddrain…” while narrowing his eyes and staring off into the middle distance.

Time on the Dale

Johnson’s transfer to the Dale, while a culture shock, has not stopped his efforts to unionize local businesses such as IguanaSafe Trampoline Design, Installation, and Repair. Most notably, he has convinced Todd of Stunt Boating Lessons by Todd fame to unionize, despite Todd being the only employee. When asked for comment, Johnson shrugged and claimed it couldn’t hurt.

He has also put his lifeguard training to use after the prompting of Sixpack Santiago, who reportedly said “You don’t have to party if you don’t want to, but someone’s gotta keep drunk idiots from falling into the pool, y’know?” He could not be shaken from his stance that it was “like firefighting, but without the fire. And with a lot more swimming. But less calendars. There is Blaywatch, though. That’s pretty cool. Sorry, what was I saying?”

Johnson has been spotted going on early morning jogs alongside Santiago, team captain Qais Dogwalker, and Howell Rocha. It is unclear how Rocha can join him, as she is an inanimate driftwood sculpture. He seems to enjoy her presence anyways.
