Made Possible in Lehigh Valley

We talk about the first time he picked up a shot put in the Bethlehem Catholic High School parking lot, his favorite place to visit when he comes home (one of them is Ressler’s Market on Main St. in Nazareth), if he’ll ever throw at Celtic Classic, his favorite place to throw in general (it’s not a stadium), how many more Olympic Games we can hope to cheer for him at (maybe more than one!), and how ArtsQuest is on notice that we want to put together a Street Throw event at SteelStacks!

Oh, and Lost Tavern Brewing made a beer in his honor: “Muddy Joe”.

A huge thank you to Lehigh Valley Made Possible for making this interview possible.
