Scott Welcomes a Super Bowl Champion and Brett Boone to his Podcast

Scott H. Silverman's Happy Hour is an inspirational and educational podcast, through which we meet many of the people who are leading the battle against addiction - many of whom have been affected by addiction and are in recovery.

The two most recent episodes feature sports personalities Aaron Taylor and Brett Boone.

Bret Boone, as a second baseman,  was a three-time All-Star, four-time Gold Glove winner, and two-time Silver Slugger Award winner. He is a third generation professional athlete. His father was Bob Boone and  his brother is Aaron Boone, manager of the New York Yankees.


Aaron Taylor is a former San Diego Charger and Green Bay Packer is a Super Bowl winner, Father, Husband, Motivational Speaker and all-around good man. Listen to his podcast below.

Scott's podcasts with these professional athletes was truly inspirational.

Here is a bit more from Aaron Taylor's Bio:

“I had been an accomplished football player. A two-time All-American. A Lombardi Award-winning offensive guard and team captain for Notre Dame. A first-round 1994 National Football League draft choice of the Green Bay Packers, the 16th overall pick. A Super Bowl XXXI champion. In 1998, I signed with the San Diego Chargers, but compounding injuries forced me to retire just two years later at the ripe old age of 28. On paper, I thought I was the American dream: Young, financially independent, a homeowner, debt free—and seemingly not a care in the world.”

“Whenever I have chosen to be of service, ultimately it comes from a place of gratitude. I do not give because I feel I have to. I now give because I am able to. And it makes me feel good inside. Honestly, I do it selfishly. And I am finally at a place in my life where I can acknowledge that and be okay with it. The irony is that when I denied that part of me that felt good when I helped, I cheated myself (and others) as this hidden agenda/need led me astray. But once I embraced/accepted it, it seemed to free something up … and I do not know how or what … but that was a barrier that I personally needed to get past to allow me and others to fully experience the power of service.”
