Happy freaking anniversary of the GridCast!! Conan and Danny with some comments from Tyler, recap one helluva year. Not only did we interview 60+ amazing athletes, coaches, and personalities, we had some epic trips that we’ll never forget.
As the GridCast we visited Columbia SC twice, Boston, New York, San Jose, Anaheim, Columbus, and Los Angeles. Each trip produced memories and stories that make us realize this is the best damn job we’ve ever had in our lives.
We could not have reached over 1.7 million listeners from over 95 countries around the world without the love and support of all of our faithful listeners and viewers. We can’t thank you enough for making this past year the best year of our lives. To show you our appreciation we pulled back the curtain and shared details of behind the scenes and often times was extremely embarrassing to share.
Not only did we have some hilarious stories but we also met many athletes who were destined to be pros later that year. For instance, we met and interviewed Alyssa Ritchey and Mattie Rasnake of the DC Brawlers, Nich Bloch from the NY Rhinos, Adam Cantrell of the SF Fire, Vincent Lipsey of the Baltimore Anthem, Tayler Drescher of the LA Reign, Coulture Turchin of the Boston Iron, and many more, all before they were ever signed by a team.
From attending the NPGL draft in the draft room itself, to singing the national anthem at matches and the playoffs, pro days around the country, and finishing up at the championships in Anaheim, it’s been one insane year and one we’ll always hold near and dear to our hearts. Thank you again for all of your support and we hope you enjoy watching this episode, probably our favorite episode we’ve done to date.
Until next time, clean up your jerks and snatches, drink your beer in batches, and always dominate your grid matches.
