Going For 2: Episode 14 is LIVE!

going for 2 sport podcast

We have another packed episode for you guys this week.

As the Olympics come to a close, we take a look at our favorite moments so far and discuss our thoughts on the Winter Games as a whole.

Okay, yes, football is done, but we couldn’t go through this episode without talking about the draft and combine. Find out what we expect to see at the NFL Combine, and who we think should be the number one pick in the draft in April.

Austin Dillon won the Daytona 500, but Andy wasn’t too far off with his predictions. Listen to see who he was backing during the Great American Race.

Next, we finally get to some basketball talk. Andy lets everyone know why it isn’t a sport, but we move on to layout some early favorites and sleepers in the upcoming NCAA Tournament. Do we think Penn State is a tournament team?

The last few weeks in college wrestling have been huge. There have been significant upsets and wild dual meets. We break down how these affect the landscape of college wrestling heading into postseason tournaments.

The NHL trade deadline is coming up on Monday, and the Penguins are always big players. Find out who we think the Penguins could realistically target to bolster their lineup for another run at The Cup.

We end the show with our new favorite segment, the best thing we’ve seen in sports. Andy reads NFL Valentine’s Day cards and tells you about Red Stripe saving Jamaica’s Olympics, while Jimi plays homer with a story about Penn State’s THON.

Enjoy!

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical at Hershey Theatre

by: Hope Frick
February 22, 2018

It may open with a somber monologue, but Beautiful: The Carole King Musical does more than sing the blues.

Beautiful follows the career of artist Carole King (Sarah Bockel) as she solidifies her status as a powerhouse singer and songwriter while navigating the changing music industry and her marriage to writing partner Gerry Goffin (Andrew Brewer).

The show begins with King’s early years in New York City as she dreams of writing pop hits for the radio as a composer for music producer Donnie Kirshner (James Clow). She teams up with (and later marries) Goffin, and the duo produces classics like “The Loco-motion,” “One Fine Day,” “Some Kind of Wonderful,” and “Will You Love Me Tomorrow.”

As Beautiful progresses, King transforms from teen-pop princess to certified hit-making star. While King’s career continues to soar, her marriage dissolves after Goffin’s instability and infidelity rock the couple. King’s pain and emotion are evident, culminating in a powerful performance of “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.”

Beautiful also chronicles King’s friendship with songwriting team Barry Mann (Jacob Heimer) and Cynthia Weil (Sarah Goeke), and the three share a touching moment towards the end of the show as King unveils “You’ve Got a Friend” before leaving New York to move to Los Angeles. Coming full circle, the show closes where it began: with King on stage behind a piano, belting out, “Beautiful.”

Hershey’s production has everything you would expect from a Broadway-style show: great chemistry between the cast, dazzling choreography and costumes and soulful music. The dialogue is snappy and funny, spotlighting King’s optimism and sense of humor, even as her marriage and career encounter snags.

Even for those who aren’t major fans of King, Beautiful is a fun, tap-your-toes, snap-your-fingers-to-the- beat show that’s certainly worth seeing.

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical runs through Sunday at Hershey Theatre. For more information and tickets, visit Hershey Theatre online.

#HACCbrew 2018 Set For Can Release

by: Jimi The Intern
February 21, 2018

Some college courses end with a final paper or test, or — in the case of HACC’s Brewing Sciences Certificate program — it ends with a beer.

zeroday brewing co HACC brewing science program

#HACCbrew 2018 is the culmination of HACC’s Brewing Sciences Certificate program designed to teach local beer enthusiasts what it takes to brew and market craft beer. Students range from hobbyist homebrewers to those with professional goals, and many in-between.


HACC unveils course for brewing school


For the second year now, the class of budding brewers teamed up with ZerØday Brewing Co. to put their knowledge to the test, and this year’s beer is set to release at 12 p.m., Saturday, March 3 at Zeroday Øutpost at Broad Street Market. 


From an idea to cans

The students started out by deciding as a class on the beer style they’d brew. Then, they worked together to come up with the flavor profile. 

A large part of the Brewing Science Program involves how to source ingredients.

The students decided that supporting local agriculture was important to them, so coming up with a recipe that was PA Preferred was a no-brainer. They sourced ingredients from Double Eagle Malt in Huntingdon Valley and Bedillion Honey Farm in Hickory, Pa.

After deciding on the style and recipe, the students were sent their own ways to come up with a game plan on how to sell the beer.

Each student presented their marketing ideas in a “Shark Tank” style format to a group of brewing industry professionals, HACC educators, and a graphic designer.

The winner: Hoppily Yours

zeroday brewing Co. hacc brewing sciences program

Hoppily Yours is a PA Preferred IPA brewed with local Black Locust Honey. This year, #HACCbrew will be available in cans, making it the first-ever PA Preferred beer to be offered in cans and available outside of its home brewery. 

Not only did the class dream up the style, but they got dirty in the ZerØday brewhouse and let brewers Theo and Hannah take the night off.

From grain to can, this project was all hands on deck from the students.

Cans will be available for purchase at Zeroday Øutpost the day of the event, their taproom on Reily St., and some select local beer stores.

Keeping it local, Bart Kominski of Kollision Media also worked with the students to come up with the design for the can.

Join the class, ZerØday, and the community for the Hoppily Yours release at Zeroday Øutpost at Broad Street Market on 12 p.m., Saturday, March 3.
