Girl Chat Sports – Episodes 44 through 47

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!!

The ladies take a look back at all the guests that have made 2017 a great year for Girl Chat Sports and all the new connections, friends and network of fabulous people!!! We hope to have each and everyone of you back again soon!!! Melissa is about to burst, the NFL regular season schedule is released Thursday at 5pm PST, and she is ready to start those plans for 2017-18 seasons games!! Steph gives us a NHL breakdown…as who would have guessed, its also playoff time for Hockey too!! Time to start learning and brushing up on the stick & puck so the ladies are ready for the Golden Knights here in Vegas this fall. Raiders are set for Las Vegas, and we discuss more updates on the Black and Silver and their new acquire, Mr. Bestmode himself…looks like Melissa may have one black and silver item in her closet…maybe… Some sad news in sports regarding Chyna Thomas, Isaiah’s Thomas sister, and how that may play a role in the Celtics 0-2 deficit to the Chicago Bulls. The ladies speak NBA Playoffs as well, some great performances and some memorable bloopers. Also we talk Aaron Hernandez…and how things change in a matter of days. Also, in Ugly news the Patriots had their visit to the white house, and wouldn’t you know those in attendance went down about 50% since their trip in 2015…hmmmm…wonder why…and the good news, Ms. Serena Williams and finance are expecting…get Melissa’s take on the “leaked picture” announcing her bundle of joy.

The Ladies of N The Zone Volume 2 PART 1 01-01-17

Welcome, Phil Allen!

Posted in Special, Sports with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 25, 2016 by MtAiryPhil

cb9f3ea3-fbfe-43ef-840a-ef2d53cb8474The A-Train here. I am very excited because we have added another contributor to the N The Zone family. We are continuing to grow and ready to take on the “City to City, State to State, Worldwide” theme as it’s said on our podcast.

So folks, I present to you Phil Allen! Allen, aka @MtAiryPhil is a long suffering Philadelphia sports junkie, journalist and broadcaster who spent nearly a decade as the Eagles postgame show host, and ESPN RADIO Philly weekend studio host. He is also a special contributor at 900AM WURD and was featured in E-A-G-L-E-S The Movie!

But enough about that, I’ll let him do the talking for sure.  Take it, Phil.

PHIL ALLEN:

Excited? Yup! Intimidated? Little bit. I mean, it’s the A-Train, Arlington Lane and a brother aptly named the “Legend Killer” Palmer Alexander, whom I watched hold the St. Louis Rams front office, the City Council, and pretty much all of Missouri’s feet to the fire as the process that culminated in the Rams exodus to LA played itself out. Finally, it’s in N The Zone Radio/Podcast and as a listener, I can hear the coals roasting (along with some guests) on the fire. Let’s keep it 100, I can’t wait. I’m honored to contribute to N The Zone.

So what do I bring? I don’t know. The pain of a lifetime waiting for a Super Bowl Champion? 42 years without a Stanley Cup Title? Season tickets to an NBA team currently 9-62 that is 33 years removed from it’s last parade?

Here’s what I know for sure. We will create broadcasts that are memorable, informative, and I believe, have the air of a world heavyweight title match in the moments when the ring is empty, and the combatants stand poised in the entryway, awaiting music, pyrotechnics, and the dulcet tones of Michael Buffer.

The Sound of Philadelphia meets the Blues of St. Louis…the East Coast rat race merged with the Midwestern drawl and the history shared by Eagles-Cardinals long time rivalry, the recent detonation of Phillies baseball dreams by the DeScalsos’, Ecksteins’, Schumakers’ plus a heaping dose of Chris Carpenter.

I could go on. I won’t.
