Alex Anthony: Grey Cups, Getting Cut and The Sandlot
Let’s get some rings in the room! Alex Anthony (Filmmaker & Retired CFL Player) joins Clay on the podcast and immediately brags about his home province of British Columbia (8:04), how he knew he’d have a future in football (17:21), winning his first Grey Cup (35:00) and the day his football career ended (37:51). Alex then opens up about how he moved into his second life in football (51:02), his all-time favourite movie (57:43), his favourite collaborations with Clay (1:11:38) and they finish off disagreeing on what gear an aspiring filmmaker should purchase (1:21:19).
