The Second Annual Another Beer Salesmen Podcast: Worst QB Ever Edition

This is the second annual podcast we’ve done here at anotherbeersalesman.com. We have decided to do this once a year because 1) Wait, it’s really been a year? and 2) Brother Dan was in town again.

I recently wrote an article on Slate.com about my time as a very bad (worst ever?) high school quarterback. In the article, I mention that my younger brother Dan played for the same team that I did, the John Bapst Crusaders of Bangor, Maine. His experience could not have been more different then mine, however, as he won a state championship and I lost every game. We talk about the transformation and the difference in attitude between winning and losing teams, as well as dress codes, actual “facebooks,” and driving in Maine winters. (It’s all tangentially related).

Hope you enjoy!

A few notes:

1) Here’s a link to the wikipedia article on the actual person John (Johannes) Bapst.

2) Our brother Tom is fine.  I mentioned that he was “unfortunately not with us,” and I realized later that sort of made it sound like he was dead. I just meant he wasn’t hanging out with us that day, which is always unfortunate.
