In mid-July of 2016, I called up my buddy Tommy Hollywood to ask him if we wanted to start a blog. In my mind, the purpose of this blog was pretty simple: to make each other (and let’s be honest, mostly ourselves) laugh. We started a now all-but-defunct site Second String and posted on it daily, even though we both knew it was just for each other and a few friends. A few months ago we joined the gang here at Entry Revel and were able to spread our nonsense and run-on sentences to a larger audience.
Here’s the thing about me though: I’ve never been much of a writer. If you’ve read anything I’ve written on this site, it can best be described as “throwing words onto a screen then rearranging them until they (kind of) make sense.” When Teetime approached Tommy Hollywood and me and asked us if we wanted to start a podcast, you could see my eyes light up like someone seeing a fastball in All-Star Baseball 2000.* For the past month or so, we’ve been sitting down once a week with an incredibly talented producer, having silly conversations, and making questionable jokes.
We’re dumping the first four episodes of what I honestly think is a good product. Some of it is a little out-dated, but we want you all to have a chance to hear where this started. So come with us as we quiz each other on baseball players from 2004, talk about jokes we told in inappropriate settings, learn the rules to cricket, and play what will probably go down as the longest game of battleship in the history of games and battleships. We love feedback in all its forms, so don’t be afraid to shoot myself and Tommy Hollywood a follow and let us know what we can do to make your commute better.
