Three Year Anniversary Episode: The Beers, Business, and Balls Podcast
EPISODE 128: Three Year Anniversary
Feat. Hall of Fame Guests Dave Silverman & John Fanta.
Thank you to everyone who has supported, listened, and watched over the past three years of our show. We couldn't have done this journey without you! A great time to break the news that Beers, Business, and Balls has won a Gold Crushie Award for Best Beer-Related Podcast! Your favorite pod took home the hardware from the Craft Beer Marketing Awards event in Nashville earlier this week.Hall of Fame guests Dave Silverman and John Fanta join the show as is tradition every year.
We start with Dave Silverman (11:22), who makes his fourth pod appearance EVER...and fourth on BBB. Dave will be back for another year as the New England Patriots' team photographer, and we live-react to the 2023 NFL schedule breaking as we record. Dave discusses his recent travels with the New England Revolution (MLS), his recent trip to Poland, and his upcoming trip to Frankfurt when the Pats take on the Colts in November for the NFL's Germany games.
John Fanta (1:15:00) joins us for an hour of live, uninterrupted content afterwards; he's excited to defend his titles of both the most appearances on the pod, and the most beers consumed in one sitting by any guest to ever appear on BBB. It was another big year for Fanta, who covered college basketball as both a play-by-play announcer and a digital content host for FOX Sports. John was there every step of the way as the UConn Huskies made their run to their fifth National Championship since 1999; he discusses Dan Hurley's growth, the NBA upside of UConn's top draft prospects, and interviewing Bill Murray after the Huskies knocked off Gonzaga in the Elite 8.
