Even though Phil Entzminger was born and at least partly raised in Salzburg, Germany, he considers himself a New Yorker through and through. This makes sense, since New York City is where he completed his childhood and it’s where he graduated high school. Following his stint at college, Phil Entzminger made the decision to stay close to his family and, because he loved New York City, he stayed on the
East Coast of the U.S. to live and work. He is still there to this day and he wouldn’t live anywhere else.
The latter half of his childhood seems to be the most indelible, since he is now a strong lover of baseball and he has a rabid devotion to the New York Mets baseball club. Phil Entzminger feels like such a New Yorker, he even has two favorite New York Mets' players, including Mike Piazza in the past and David Wright in more recent times. He is so into baseball, Mets broadcaster Ralph Kiner is his favorite announcer. He and his family still make an annual pilgrimage to least one Mets game every summer.
In addition to traveling and playing golf, Phil Entzminger also enjoys listening to music especially jazz. In fact, he makes regular trips to New Orleans to experience what he considers "real" jazz. Phil enjoys Harry Connick Jr. and other modern jazz players, like . Greg Osby, Charles Gayle and Jacob Collier, who happens to be a particular favorite. He admits to avoiding most jazz-rock fusion, although he does like some of it and considers it all relaxing. One of his favorite things to do is to sit back with a hot cup of coffee and listen to Connick.
