The Zone

We never know exactly what to expect when Big Joe Kleine is in studio, but we always know it will be entertaining. As you can see from the action photo above, Joe is a beast on the court and is nothing less in THE ZONE.

With the recent news about Dennis Rodman apprantly being the USA's unofficial ambassador to North Korea, Joe shares some information on what his impression of Rodman was after his time playing in the NBA with him. 

We also talk with Joe about this past weeks game against Arkansas State and the upcoming game this Saturday in the first round of the Sun Belt Conference from Hot Springs against the four seed FIU.  The two teams split today. Joe also dropped the bomb on us today that he was 1-0 in his Jr. High wrestling career.  Thank God he did NOT wear a singlet in his match and his one and only go to move was the cradle.  

Rickey Williams and Ben Faires spent some time with us and we talked about Life Champs. Life Champs is a non-profit youth sports organization that uses the platform of sports to build champions for life. 

We also have Jeff "Money" Taylor's Oaklawn picks for today. Here they are all typed out for you.

Race 1 #5 True Inspiration

Race 2 #2 Meafare's Reward

Feature Race 8 #4 Apropos

Longshot race 5 #1 Bored to Death

From Catholic High, Wrestling Coach Paul Mammarelli stops in. He is on to talk about a Hall of Fame banquest and Tournament of Champions. 

Coming up Friday, we are live at Summit Arean in Hot Springs for the Sun Belt Confrence. Lots of guests lined up including Steve Shields and Robert Dallimore from UALR and Brian Boyer and John Brady from ASU. We will also talk with Robbie Neiswanger and Phil Elson will be sitting in with us. All that and more coming up tomorrow in THE ZONE from 10 to 1!
