By Yard Athletics – March 22, 2019

“Guess who’s back… back again… 20 Questions is back… Brody’s our friend…”

K that was lame. Promise to never “type-rap” Eminem on another blog again…

20 Questions! You know it! You love it! You crave it! You wait patiently by your phone for the email notification saying another thoroughbred #YardHard athlete is coming down the gauntlet to reveal their innermost secrets to the world!

A few months ago we had the utmost pleasure of introducing Nolan Toigo to the world, and we now have the honor to welcome his brother Brody into the mix.

Brody can be found most mornings in the Yard, going through the paces of a 7am Boneyard to get the day fired up reeeeeally early. Brody pulled no punches in this questionnaire, so read below to see which patio rules them all, which talent he’d love to have, and which movie will always be on repeat.
