JSF Show, Episode Seven: The One with Tripp Cromer (and Ozzie Smith)


At no point in this show’s short history have we featured a guest who inspired us to dive around our living rooms imitating him as kids.  Maybe we’ve mimicked a Ray Vinson high five or two recently, but that was nothing compared to sprawling out across the floor pretending to snag a ground ball in the hole like this week’s guest did on so many occasions manning the shortstop position for the Cardinals.

We’re talking about one of the few baseball players who can be recognized by fans across multiple generations just by saying his first name: Ozzie.

Special Guest: Ozzie Smith

Beer of the Week:
American IPA from Schlafly (link)

    Gotta be honest: Ozzie is about the most boring interview in the world, so I was worried when I saw the episode title. That being said, you guys made him come out his shell (relatively speaking). I think this was a good episode to add to your arsenal because it was a true test of your abilities to have fun.

    Nicely done.
