The Zone


8/5/2013 3:12 PM

 The Zone was back to normal today, well as normal as we like it anyways. Justin is back from vacation and today we name our 103.7 The Buzz Best Villain. In the final four it was The Joker from The Dark Knight versus Darth Vader and Hannibal Lector versus Buffalo Bill. Vader put up a good fight but not good enough to beat the posthumous Oscar winning performance by Heath Ledger. With Hannibal Lecter and Buffalo Bill both being from the same film and only one of them winning an Oscar it was all Lector in this fight. It came down to Ledger versus Hopkins. Both were Academy Award winning roles but the listeners picked their favorite and the winner of our 2013 Best Villain Bracket is… Heath Ledger as The Joker!

 Corliss Williamson is headed back to the NBA. He is leaving UCA after three seasons to be an assistant coach for the Sacramento Kings. Coach Big Nasty calls in to talk about his new job and the opportunity to be a coach in "The League".

 Amy Perry was on with us from Make-A-Wish. She was in to hang out and talk about the Handful of Hearts Texas Hold ‘em Tournament taking place on August 10th. For more information or to sign up click HERE or email Amy at APERRY@MIDSOUTH.WISH.ORG.

 We also spent some with Barrett Sallee today. Barrett is our college football expert from Bleacher Report and we delved into the latest and most serious controversy with Johnny football.  According to my man BS, it's no BS that Johnny is in T-R-O-U-B-L-E!
