Posted in Girl Chat Sports, Podcast with tags , , , , , on May 17, 2017 by A-Train

IN CASE YOU HAVE MISSED THEM, CHECK OUT THESE PAST EPISODES OF @GirlChatSports with great guests and sports talk from Melissa Ferris (@seattle4_life) and Stephanie Washington (@S_Wash)

MARCH MADNESS is in full affect and what better way to celebrate than have special Guest, Dedan Thomas joining the podcast! Dedan is a UNLV men’s basketball alumni, during those crazy days of the running rebels of early 90s. The ladies talk with him about college life in sin city, trying to stay off the strip, having a roommate like J.R. Rider and being coached by the legend Jerry Tarkanian. Also what he’s doing these days, WestCoast basketball, WestCoast Rebels, Las Vegas Storm…the boys & girls basketball teams…of course we get into some March Madness…if anyone has a bracket left and who is still around to take it all!!! Hot topic, turns the podcast to the discussion of LaVar Ball, as a parent, as “promoter” and how this is or isn’t affecting sons, especially London Ball currently in the sweet 16 battle. And we hear Dedan’s take as a father of 4 boys in the sports world. Of course Melissa and Steph couldn’t let a podcast go without some NFL updates, free agency had a few major announcements…oh and the wait could be over soon, Raiders to Las Vegas updates!!! And Marshawn in Black and Silver? A few NBA notable moments and stats and what about players getting a game off here and there for rest? We will give you our two cents…and of course some Melissa jokes! Lol

Girl Chat Sports Episode 44 – Dedan Thomas

The ladies really enjoyed Episode 45 with Special Guest Natasha Gransberry. Its rare to find women that enjoy sports, let alone talk sports and TRAVEL for sports. Natasha does that and more!!! She is a die hard Houston Texans fan and founded theGransberry.com to have a place to bring Sports, Food and Fun and everything in between, while encouraging travel and new experiences both in the Sports arena and off. Natasha started PumpCleatsCouture as a fashionable place for sports talk mixing the best of fashion and sports! As women sports fans that have always found it hard to “hang with the guys” or have to constantly battle with the guys when in comes to sports discussions and groups, it was refreshing for Melissa and Steph to talk to someone with the same Passion and Love of Sports. That love and want to be able to share with other women and help encourage and teach them about the sport, led to Natasha writing, The Gransberry’s Gridiron Guide, where she helps explain the basics of football, rules, calls and terminology while also helping women with basic questions like traveling to games, the ins and outs of attending a live game and where to locate and purchase tickets. We are telling you this is ONE EPISODE you DO NOT WANT TO MISS!!! The ladies also discuss the Las Vegas Raiders, Marshawn Lynch making a un-retiring, Tony Romo Retiring, how the NCAA Championships went, who is up for NBA MVP and the start of baseball season has begun. Along with the OOOH and AAHHH news for this episode. Don’t forget GirlChatSports is bi-weekly…we will be back April 22nd!!
