Facebook: Tap Houston

Nickname: “Britt” My real name sucks!

Hometown: Houston, TX

College: Gracie University – “Keep it real”

High school: Mayde Creek HS (Katy)

How long at SportsRadio 610: Since June, 2012

Coolest person at SR610: Seth’s dark side. He may look like Andy Bernard on roids, but he’s Joe Rogan-funny.

What I love about Houston: I love that our fair city is big, small town filled with culture and history…and that it’s not Dallas!

Favorite four-letter word: If you’re 18 and over, YouTube “Bobby Knight Explains His Favorite Word” and I’ll let you do the math.

Favorite people to interview: Manti T’eo’s girlfriend

Experience: As far as MMA is concerned, I’ve trained in Gracie Jiu Jitsu and MMA for several years with top-level guys around the country including several UFC Champions and fighters, as well as, BJJ World Champions. When it comes to Craft Beer, my passion for exploring every style of beer has educated me in all aspects of the brewing process and why beers look and taste the way they do. Making friends with head brewers, brewery owners, bar owners, and award-winning brewers is an educational experience!

Teams followed: I do miss my Oilers, but I’m a die-hard Texans fan. I’m also a Fantasy Football dork so I follow the entire NFL too. Then there’s Johnny Football and company, GIG’EM!

Signature phrases: You know how Jack Bauer used to say, “D@MM!T” a lot? Well, see my answer for “Favorite Four-Letter Word”.

Favorite sports experiences: Royce Gracie personally promoting me to blue belt a couple years ago (see my thumbnail; My wife surprising me with trip to Vegas to watch UFC 126 at Mandalay Bay on Super Bowl Weekend (got to meet/train with a bunch of fighters/legends); Going to Oilers vs. Jets playoff game in ’91 in The Dome; First Texans playoff game at reliant. That atmosphere was unbelievable!; Playing in a HS basketball game at The Summit. Sitting courtside at a Rockets vs. Bobcats came and being threatened by Tim Donaghy for heckling him after a series of blatantly bad calls – I feel like a part of sports history!

Sports played: Football, Baseball, Basketball from little league thru HS. Most recently I’ve competed in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments around the Texas.

Family: I’m the only guy in my home – my wife, baby daughter and two female American Eskimos keep me busy.

More: I have only of the weirdest lives (not in a good way) you’ll never hear about. That’s why I’m trying to get a bill passed thru Congress to change “Murphy’s Law” to “Hoffmann’s Law”. I’m “that parent” that posts photos of their kid on FB too much but I don’t care…she’s friggin’ cute! I geek out over MMA, Jui Jitsu, and Craft Beer. I have a very sad weakness for reality TV train wrecks. I’m a major foodie and love to cook. I’m a 2 time cancer survivor and I married way over my head.

Tap Houston: Beauty Is On The Inside

It appears that America’s superficiality knows no bounds these days. Women (and men) are objectified on a daily basis and we are obsessed with looks. So it goes for how we now view our beer.
