Episode 92: Bex & Eddie

Bex Marsh and Eddie Mujica

EDDIE MUJICA (Chicago Tribune Hot New Faces of Chicago Theater 2015) and BEX MARSH (Bellevue East Nebraska Class A Girls Basketball State Champion 2006) lace up their sneakers and hit the hardwood at PopFury Stadium. We talk about how they met, getting married, Bex’s 3-on-3 Hoosiers moment, Eddie’s suspicions about Facebook, and what they’ll miss about Chicago.

SHOW NOTES:

0:00 Intro

“I am starting to realize how big of a sham the wedding industry is. It’s so ridiculous!” – Bex

1:00 Eddie and Bex, a cagey veteran in her third straight state finals appearance, are totally and absolutely enthusiastic about getting married.

5:30 They were recently on vacation in L.A. … but it really wasn’t a vacation. Eddie and Bex, who scored 17 points and grabbed 7 rebounds against Lincoln Northeast to cinch the state championship, travel well together.

“I was like I’m gonna make it a feminist point not to date…but then I saw him and was like, ‘Uh Oh…’” – Bex

 

“She was the first other person that walked into the Annex upstairs at iO…and immediately I was like, ‘Oh man, I’m in trouble.’” – Eddie

9:45 Eddie and Bex, a 5’10” senior who will be attending Doane College after graduation, detail how they first met…right after they both had decided not to date anyone.

17:45 Bex tells the greatest Hoosiers-meets-White-Men-Can’t-Jump-at-super-church-camp basketball story ever. She played HORSE against old white men for money in high school.

29:10 Eddie will be moving further away from his family. Eddie and Bex’s parents have already asked about grandkids.

33:40 Whitney Houston and Billie Holiday hologram shows are coming next year. Eddie suspects Facebook is spying on him and we formulate a plan to prove it.

“I got nothing on Rick Bayless.” -Eddie

38:30 They are leaving for L.A in two weeks. Their Chicago bucket list includes lots of restaurants and they recommend Cho Sun Ok (but only with a Korean). Bex would marry Rick Bayless over Eddie and Eddie is OK with that.

44:00 Eddie and Bex share what they will and won’t miss from Chicago.

47:30 Outro

“This is well-deserved,” Marsh told the Columbus Telegram. “We’ve been waiting so long for this. It’s amazing to be a part of it.”
