Tag: Joe Buck
If you don’t think you know Joe Buck, you likely know Joe Buck’s voice. Joe is a hugely successful, Emmy-winning broadcaster/entertainer. He is the announcer of the most significant sporting events in the country, maybe the world— Super Bowls, World Series, and more.
Joe recently Zoom-bombed HIG’s morning meeting and after the encounter Matt picked up Joe’s 2016 book Lucky Bastard: My Life, My Dad and the Things I’m Not Allowed to Say on TV. Joe is also showing a new side of himself through his podcast Daddy Issues (co-hosted with his pal Oliver Hudson).
As the podcast and book titles suggest, Joe can laugh at himself— and Matt predicts that after listening to this fantastic episode, you’ll have a new appreciation and understanding for the phrase “so what” and the man behind the voice that brings us the biggest moments.

We are serious about our mission to help investors take the long view, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t open to a little fun. “Fun” has been a core value since the founding of Hill Investment Group and the team at HIG had a moment of laughter this month when the famed sportscaster Joe Buck (lower right of image) was a surprise guest on our daily team Zoom call. His humor and impromptu “play-by-play” announcing of our team call gave us a memorable quarantine moment and a boost of energy that has yet to fade.
Being “Zoom Bombed” by a sports legend like Joe Buck made our May, but we’re also excited this month because we are celebrating the anniversaries of two All-Star members of the HIG team. Nell Schiffer (Sheriff) has cranked out three years and PJ McDaniel (McDoogle) has been making things happen for two years with the firm. PJ’s friendly demeanor and passion for extending evidence-based investing to everyone have made him an asset to our group. Nell puts her unique abilities to work by keeping us all in order. Beyond tending to the financial, compliance, and HR functions of our firm, “The Sheriff” is creating structure and workflows, allowing us to provide a higher service level to all of our clients.
