Cudo discusses the National Anthem chess match between the Blackhawks and Predators in the NHL with Benjamin Hill from MILB.com. Then they shift back into Ben’s wheelhouse of talking about minor league baseball promotions including the Brevard County Manatee national media hit, the ZOOperstars! and Ben’s Master Builder idea for the a national promotion craze (and Cudo agrees).
They talk about Sauce Castillo and the Sacramento King’s ability to quickly capitalize in a playful “minor-league baseball” way.
Cudo talks to Unsuited Podcast Host Matt Biegun in Phone tag. Then Cudo and Hill close with shout outs to a deserving few.
Pat Walker is on assignment.

This month’s edition of the Gameops.com Podcast is hosted by Editor Jon Cudo and Special Guest Ben Hill. They start with a look at the NHL Anthem story from Nashville.
They talk about promotions in baseball including Ben’s insightful idea of tapping into the Lego craze for a game promotion like Star Wars Nights.
Ben shares stories and promotions from his first trip of the year to Florida. Cudo also interviews Matt Biegun from the Unsuited Podcast.
Likely to be remembered as one of the all time great episodes.
