It’s the weekend and I have some things that need to be said…

  1. Jason Kidd coaching the Brooklyn Nets is like Whoopi Goldberg’s character Eddie coaching the New York Knicks…it’s a joke.
  2. Chris Petersen is a great hire for Washington, he’ll start stealing those Pac-12 recruits from USC, UCLA and Oregon.
  3. Might have to start watching the 2014 World Cup, if not, I should start playing FIFA.
  4. Maybe Jay-Z is a smart guy after all. Kudos to him netting former New York Yankees 2nd baseman Robinson Cano a $240 million deal with the Seattle Mariners. Maybe Cano might humble himself after all in a new uniform. Then again, it’s Robinson Cano. Shoutout to Stephen A. Smith for calling out the Yankees on First Take. (NOTE: I rarely watch that show)
  5. Watched Bulls/Heat last night…I guess it’s one of those times the Heat plays like crapola before turning it up in the month of April.
  6. I really want Mizzou to win the SEC Championship just to see how screwy the BCS gang will be towards them.
  7. Curtis Granderson got $60 million from the New York Mets…Hey Mets management, how did that deal with Jason Bay work out? Curt, make your money! If you screw the Mets, I love every minute of it.
  8. Gary Kubiak getting fired from the Houston Texans was understandable, but don’t fire the man when he just got off a stroke. I don’t care how big or how small it was. Damn. I guess 11 straight losses made sure he got that ax quick.
  9. To the gamer who cussed during the middle of a game on NBA 2K14…do that again, it was hilarious.
  10. I want to see how the Downtown Athletic Club treats Jameis Winston now that he is not charged…My race card is ready to pulled if he doesn’t win the Heisman. He’s the favorite. Johnny Manziel and A.J. McCarron can both go to hell.
  11. I actually miss Lovie Smith. It’s time for him to get back in the saddle as head coach for a team…maybe the Houston Texans come to mind. I don’t know.
  12. I would actually laugh if the Miami Heat trade Dwyane Wade.
  13. What was the point of the Indianapolis Colts getting Trent Richardson? I’ll leave that for YOU to answer.
  14. DeMarcus Cousins should have no reason saying anything about anybody. You play for the Sacramento Kings dude, the Kings.
  15. What happened to the St. Louis Blues? Please EA, be correct on this prediction.
  16. So…is Kobe coming back?

That will wrap up this rant for today. More to come. Make sure you tune in to “Beyond The Ropes” on Youtube, comes on every Monday night after Raw. It’s LIVE and you can chat with the crew.

N The Zone TV is coming soon. You don’t want to miss that either.

A Few Questions…with Sarah Estopare

Posted in Football, Special, Sports with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 27, 2012 by ALNTheZone

IT’S TIME FOR ANOTHER EDITION OF “A Few Questions…” and on this edition, I want to introduce a young woman, born and raised in St. Louis, gearing up to become one of the first quarterbacks for the brand new expansion St. Louis Saints of the Lingerie Football League. She is Sarah Estopare (ES-TOE-PAR-AY).

A-TRAIN: How are you doing today?

SARAH: I’m doing great!

A-TRAIN: How long have you been a football fan?

SARAH: For as long as I can remember – Watching the Sunday games with my dad and little brother and learning from them are always some of my favorite memories!

A-TRAIN: Very interesting. How did you learn of the Lingerie Football League?

SARAH: I saw the first game I ever watched on MTV2 and thought to myself, “I need to be doing that.”

A-TRAIN: Is that so…well, stated that you are a QB, what have you learned so far playing the position?

SARAH: I’ve learned that you’re the leader out there and you control the momentum of the game. It’s one of the coolest, yet challenging positions I’ve ever played. 

A-TRAIN: You think you got a better arm than (St. Louis Rams QB) Sam Bradford?

SARAH: Haha, not sure about that, but I can hold my own!and I love it!

A-TRAIN: How will you feel when you walk out on the field for the very first game?

SARAH: I think I’ll feel everything that I’ve been working for, hardwork, dedication, pain all coming together at once and it will be one of the coolest feelings ever. It’ll give me goosebumps!

A-TRAIN: How about when you know that you will be on TV?

SARAH: That’s just a bonus! I’ll take it!

A-TRAIN: What is your goal with the League?

SARAH: To win games and head to that All Star Game to rep my state!

A-TRAIN: Alright, so the important question is…NFL or LFL?

SARAH: I’ll be honest with you – NFL. I like watching the pro QB’s do their thing.

A-TRAIN: Wow! Any other sports you like?

SARAH: BASEBALL!!!

A-TRAIN: Is this what you watch the most?

SARAH: Baseball is a huge passion of mine.

A-TRAIN: Are you single?

SARAH: I am single at the moment.

A-TRAIN: I’ll leave that alone. (Looks away) So, do you like your hometown teams?

SARAH: I love my hometown teams – Cards, Blues and Rams…but I love the New York Yankees – so much history and culture behind the team!

A-TRAIN: YANKEES???  I think I want to vomit. Just kidding. But are your favorite athletes?

SARAH: I got a few: Derek Jeter, Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson, Tom Brady, David Freese, Ray Lewis, and Kobe Bryant.

A-TRAIN: Top 5 artists that you are listening to?

SARAH: Tough question, as I love my music! Huge country fan… Lady Antebellum, Kenny Chesney, when I’m not listening to country..Al Green, Mariah Carey and Chicago.

A-TRAIN: Interesting choices. Top 5 TV shows you watch?

SARAH: I’m mainly watching sports, ESPN, but I’ll still watch the old sitcoms like Friends, which is my favorite show, as far as reality tv goes, I like Khloe and Lamar.

(A-TRAIN screams in terror)

A-TRAIN: Ok, any shoutouts that you want to give out?

SARAH: A tremendous shoutout to my amazing family – Mom, Dad, Maggie and Tommy you guys are the greatest. My grandparents, my best friend Falon and all of my guy friends out there!

A-TRAIN: I know you’re doing social media…where can they follow you?

SARAH: @SarahEstopare on Twitter and Sarah Estopare LFL Facebook page.

A-TRAIN: Thanks for taking some time out for this interview.

SARAH: Thanks so much for doing this!

A-TRAIN: You bet. I wish nothing but the best of luck to you and your brand new team.

SARAH: I appreciate that!

A-TRAIN: I will be watching you on TV, without a doubt. Low key, I like the LFL! And that was Sarah Estopare, QB of the St. Louis Saints you can catch her next season, and if you miss the games, you can watch them on MTV2, more to come!
