Jay Washington caught up with fitness instructor Sara Soto and nutritionist Chef Fredo Outlaw as they talked about the P.O.W.E.R.H.A.R.D event happening Saturday and Sunday June 8th & 9th at Montrose Harbor in Chicago, IL which also features UFC star Shonie Carter. They spoke or the different programs that are offered and also Chef Fredo spoke on the importance of understanding nutrition in the food in which we eat on a daily basis.
Jay Washington got the opportunity to sit down and chop it up with member’s of the Chicago Force Women’s Tackle (yup full tackle FULL EQUIPMENT) football team. Jay was joined in the studio by quarterback Sami Grisafe, Lineman (offensive & defensive) Taz Brooks, & DB/special teams Timesha Wharton.
Jay got to learn about each of the woman as far as their personas off the field, day jobs, love of the game and how they came to be a member of the Chicago Force. We even get to hear some of the veteran/rookie initiations that go on in professional sports.
Ok Boys & Girls, raise your hands if you’ve heard of the expression “You got about as much chance as a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest”
Now imagine a bunch of one-legged individuals in a ready-to-rumble type of melee. Yeah that actually happened and its was a charity event.
Details are light but a stunning video of a rumble between what is reported to be teams from Belgium and the Netherlands surfaced on YouTube Monday. The match is believed to have taken place in Antwerp, Belgium.
What you can tell from the video is that a player in an orange jersey hits the ground at about the 19 second mark. The player on the ground grabs the single leg of No. 8 in black and takes him down.
Then the chaos begins. After some more shouting between players, able-bodied spectators join the fracas, one even comes in with a flying kick from behind, knocking a man to the ground.
The video jumps to cooler heads prevailing. There are no reports of any injuries.
Jay Washington & J.R. Bang got the opportunity to sit and talk with Fayth Caruso Pilates instructor at Sixpax Core Studios located in the South Loop of Chicago. Fayth talked about the difference between Yoga and Pilates, how the core of the body is by far the most important part to work on.
Fayth stuck around to hear the IGNORANT NEWS of the day and may have even convinced Jay & J.R. to go take up a pilates course (Stay Tuned For the Video)
Anybody who is a baseball enthusiast or a fan know who the legendary Mickey Mantle is. The former New York Centerfielder is known as the greatest switch-hitter (he can hit the ball from the right or left side-get your mind out the gutter) in history, has the most home runs ever in a World Series (18), career leader in walk-off home runs (13) just to name a few. A you can also add (in a Samuel L Jackson voice) “THE “MUTHA F**KIN MAN” to that list after you check this out.
In something that solidifies not just how great of a player he was, but dammit how smoothed out and pimp-tight he is a letter was released written by Mickey Mantle depicting his most outstanding experience at Yankee Stadium. This was in response to a request from then-Vice-President of the New York Yankees, Bob Fishel, and asked to contribute to the Yankee Stadium’s forthcoming 50th anniversary celebrations. You know that expression taken from that great bible verse “Ask and you shall receive” well check out the letter sent by Fishel and then check out the response from Mantle.
Maybe you didn’t read that like you thought you did so just in case HERE IS THE TRANSCRIPT (in clear type)
New York Yankees Inc.
As you probably know, 1973 marks the 50th anniversary of Yankees Stadium and we are going to have a season-long Golden Anniversary celebration. We hope to mark the occasion on our Old Timers Day, Saturday, August 11, as well as on individual dates during the season.
We thought it would be interesting to learn from you what you consider your outstanding event at Yankee Stadium. In many cases the answer is obvious, but because we are writing a large number of your former team mates, we are asking you to answer this question for us.
1973 will be the final season at Yankee Stadium as we know it. We will be located at Shea in 1974 and ’75 while Yankee Stadium is completely rebuilt to reopen in 1976.
Thanks for your cooperation. We are looking forward to seeing you in 1973 and wish you a happy holiday season.
Very truly yours,
(Signed, ‘Bob Fishel’)
December 14, 1972/m
I consider the following my outstanding experience at Yankee Stadium:
— I got a blow-job under the right field Bleachers, by the Yankee Bull pen.
This event occurred on or about: (Give as much detail as you can)
— It was about the third or fourth inning. I had a pulled groin and couldn’t fuck at the time. She was a very nice girl and asked me what to do with the cum after I came in her mouth. I said don’t ask me, I’m no cock-sucker.
Signed: Mickey Mantle, The All-American Boy
Got serviced, while servicing your team could you imagine this happening today. A-Rod grabbing a drunk chick sitting by first base telling her “You wanna play with this A-Rod in the C-hole, during the 7th inning stretch”, or in Football Brandon Marshall calling time out and snatching a chick at the 50-yd line asking her “would you like to play Wide Receiver” or even Steph Curry at halftime telling a fan as he is going in the tunnel “Hey Shorty you wanna come cross the Golden Gate bridge”.
All I’m saying I believe all of these athletes would be either LEGENDARY or drained if this happened in every sport. But nonetheless it makes you realize why baseball is called “America’s Past-time” because i know thats one way I for damn sure would love to kill time.

Jay Washington had the opportunity to get CHAMPIONS in the studio. By Champions the 2012 GFL (Gridiron Football League) Champions the Chicago Chaos. In the studio was the Vice President/Director of Marketing Rick Szemore as well as players Cornerback/Safety Louis Stallworth and Running Back Jesse Daniel (who showed up late).
They spoke on recruitment process, difference between their league, arena and indoor football. Motivation to play as well as expectations for the upcoming season.
Jay Washington was joined in studio by Adam Knoll and via phone with Rick Starosta of the Gridiron Football League. They spoke about the upcoming tournament that they are holding in Kenosha, Wisconsin at Mahone Stadium on Saturday April 20th.
They spoke on how long the league has been in existence, the difference in rules as comparison to arena football and how the tournament itself is different from the traditional tournament and what can be expected.
This has recently become a day in age where there is seemingly less and less for Chicagoland youth to be involved in to avoid being caught in the madness that lies present within Chicago streets. Many on a worldwide stage have heard of the violence that plagues Chicago’s youth on a daily basis so it is truly refreshing to find individuals with a genuine concern to find alternate solutions instead of the same dead end that many children feel that they are destined to be involved in.
Jeff Hunt and John Singleton have come together to form the J.J.Y.A youth pro camp, which meshes both football as well as track & field events. Along with the two men Jay was able to speak with Formed Chicago Bear Tight End Desmond Clark, who talks why he got involved with the cause and how violence has affected him as well.
We talk about how track & field is used more in football then people tend to give credit for.
The J.J.Y.A Football And Track & Field All-Star youth Pro Camp is happening Sunday April 7th at North Central College in Naperville,IL
With almost three decades within the stand up comedy game and still going strong it was an honor to talk to a comedian the caliber of Dom Irrera. From having gotten his first big break back in 1989 to being a consistent working comedian today and appealing to any and all types of crowds, Dom has seemingly found the key to longevity in the business.
Dom and Jay Washington talk about his appeal to the college comedy demographic and then the conversation goes into great deal about sports. Dom who is an avid sports fan talks with Jay about the Rutgers incident, Brittney Griner, Brian Urlacher and even the new long-standing debate of Lebron vs Michael Jordan.
Dom Irrera is appearing this week at the Laugh Factory Chicago for 5 shows Thursday-Saturday 3175 N Broadway in Chicago,Il.
