FOOTBALL IS BACK and the ladies are BEYOND excited to talk football with guest Erika Fernandez @CurlsandSports
Erika is all things New York sports and we hear how this woman has already started making name for herself in the sports world as CurlsAndSports. Reporting for Black Sports Online and 1340am Fox Sports, Erika has been able to interview some amazingly athletes like Simone Biles, Jimmy Butler, Demarcus Ware, Aaron Gordon, Jalen Rose, He Hate Me and Carmelo Anthony! Living life in NYC comes with it’s struggles as a “former” Knicks fan, a life long baseball fan for the Mets…but this lovely lady will cheer for all NY teams when it comes down to the line. NY against everybody!!! Her YouTube channel/videos also have a great following and her take on the Crying Jordan meme is hilarious …find out on this episode who gets that award.
And without further ado, hosts Melissa and Steph FINALLY get to jump right into the 2017-18 NFL Season. With Training camp having just kicked up, the Hall of Fame Game wrapping up with Steph’s Cowboys winning in “Patriot Fashion” and both the Cowboy and Seahawks getting a member inducted into the class of 2017 HOF…it proves to be an exciting episode recapping the last couple weeks. Melissa ACTUALLY gives some props to a couple members of the Cowboys team too (don’t worry, Hell hasn’t frozen over just yet). The ladies also discuss Steph’s recent travels to Atlanta and the memorizing Mercedes Benz Stadium and Melissa’s upcoming “Sports Trip” back home to Seattle to see the Seahawks vs. Vikings preseason game, Big 3 playoffs and her first ever LIVE Soccer game with MLS raining champs, Seattle Sounders.

This episode is packed with ladies talking sports, and how could you not love that? The ladies Steph and Melissa are joined by Blythe Brumleve, found of GuysGirl. We learn how young Blythe had a favorite 4-letter word (rhymes with bit) were the start of something special…her LOVE for sports. A long time Jacksonville Jaguars football fan, Blythe explains wanting a clothing line for female fans, and how that turned into a blog, into a gig at the radio station, talking pre-game for the Jacksonville Jaguars and helping ignite the community of women who know sports, talk sports, and want to learn and thrive in sports based media. A true inspiration to the ladies of Girlchatsports!
The ladies also address the “unlucky” Lucky Whitehead, and the “needs to sit his but down” Ezekiel Elliot, what Dallas Cowboy actually is given credit by Melissa (yes it was painful for her to admit). Also NBA, guess who is living it up “working” out in Vegas…and wondering if the pool at Drais counts as “workout”. Las Vegas adds another sports team to the City of Sin, coming 2018. And the ladies share a few Oooooh and Ahhhhhh moments.

The Ladies are CELEBRATING their 50th Episode!!! Such an amazing time through all of the podcasts with some great guests. Today, why not celebrate it with the one and only, Palmer Alexander, @thelegendkil, from N The Zone Show and N The Zone Network. Palmer lays down what’s going on with N The Zone, the upcoming projects, some of the other shows on the network and does what he does best…talk sports smack with the ladies! lol There is never a loss for words when chatting it up with Palmer, and always plenty of laughs. We get his take on the NBA, Summer League, MLB and NFL, and of course comfort him with the still all too recent loss of the St. Louis Rams.
Steph and Melissa LITERALLY are counting the days down tell football is back…preseason, practices, the show Hard Knocks…ANYTHING football they are eager anticipating. Until then Melissa has a break down of the MLB Home Run Derby and All-Star game, the ladies finally agree on both liking Aaron Judge and the excitement he brings to the game. Steph gives her “Laker Love” segment along with some updates and overview of NBA Summer League so far here in Las Vegas.
Over all this is a great fun episode, celebrating the big 5-0! And you’ll get to hear how Melissa crush on Kendall Gill started…and some slightly stalker-ish tactics as a young girl LOL!

The ladies of Girlchatsports had the pleasure of speaking with the Co-Founders of Minorities In Sports Business Network ( @MiSportsBiz ), Shaina Wiel and Candice Haynes. The ladies provided a history of MiS, how it started, its purpose and its members. Their mission is to provide and be the premier space for resources, connections, and collaborations that heighten the success of minorities in the Sports Industry. You can catch these ladies and many of their members at events all over the country like Nascar, All-Star Weekend, Final Four, Big3, numerous other professional sporting events...while also speaking at engagements and providing mentor and fellowship to community members. These women and their members provide a great community of support for other Minorities in Sports while providing a great place to share contacts, work on connections and provide the necessary tools to encourage success in all of its members.
Now getting to that topic of Sports, Candice shares her 29yr relationship gone bad with the NY Knicks, and her take on Phil Jackson and the Knicks parting ways. Steph and Melissa, having been at the Big3 draft, were anxious to hear from Shaina on being live at the inaugural Big3 game this past weekend in NY...however the group quickly discussed the poor set up and execution of how the games were televised, recorded and marketed.
Melissa, of course, gives her usual wit and humor/one liners during the sports review at the start of the podcast and the ladies enjoy a quick "Vegas Sports" update...boy has Las Vegas come a long way in having sports news to report! And boy how about those moves in the NBA, between the draft, free agency and trades...this is definitely going to be an interesting off season.

In this Episode the ladies take small break from guests and have the show to themselves. 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 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.

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!!!
