ABOUT THAT'LL PLAY HOSTS
"Hey listeners. I'm John Nuzzi, Co-host of That'll Play. This is my quick sell on myself so the pressure is on to impress you. I will have to make this bio longer then a Tweet unfortunately, so focus hard. If you can handle the light reading then lean in and get comfortable with the next few paragraphs about my thoughts, background and accomplishments...
I was born, raised and currently reside on Long Island, the next door neighbor of the greatest city in the world, New York City. New York City is the only place in the world where it smells like millions of dollars and homeless people at the same exact time. It's got everything you would possibly want in the typical metropolis environment, with the exception of winning sports franchises. The greatest city in the world's teams shouldn't be losing to B market teams from the middle of no where. That's my motivation for getting this podcast going, folks. I want New York and it's residents to have something to root for again.
Still with me over there? Ok, great.
I will mention my current accomplishment. I could easily list all my professional goals and fancy media jobs that I've had but this isn't a LinkedIn page. Sorry. Being a Co-Host of That'll Play is my current accomplishment and I'll explain why in the next sentence. It took a lot of work and passion to get this off the ground and running, so you the listener(s) are getting a top notch product.
With that being said, gear up and I'll see you out there on the field. That'll Play."
"Greetings, loyal subscribers, listeners and followers. My name is Matt Candela, and I'll be one of your co-hosts for the duration of this podcast. For the select few of you that are interested, I am obligated by social convention to tell you things about myself.
Like Mr. Nuzzi, I am a Long Island native who has developed a healthy love/hate relationship for the strip of land I call home. You can't beat the amenities, but the traffic can turn even the most mild-mannered Bruce Banner into a green rage monster. To distract myself from such things, I spend a lot of my spare time playing and reading about sports, watching an absurd amount of movies, and indulging in the abundant local Italian cuisine.
I am a Graphic Designer by day, but by night my true passions lie with the film and entertainment world. That's how I came on board with That'll Play. John is a music aficionado, I can recite the script of Jaws scene-for-scene, and we're both nuts for professional sports, technology and entertainment. So we figured we could have a good time talking about those things and being wise-asses for an hour.
Seriously though folks, we're having a great time doing this show, and we hope you have as great a time listening to it. And hey, maybe you'll learn something along the way...
