While music is undoubtedly Cuddy's and Keelor's bond, football also brought them together – literally.
“I was the quarterback of the junior team at our high school, and Greg was a senior defensive end, and somehow he missed the memo about not rocking the quarterback during a scrimmage,” Cuddy joked.
“To this day, I tell Jim that I knew back then: as quarterbacks go, he was going to be a great musician. It’s funny to think that 30 years later that we’re actually playing the Grey Cup,” Greg explained.
