You might think it is impossible to talk to someone in the sports field as big as Stephen A. Smith. You would be wrong. On January, 30th, I got the chance to talk to him live on his show called “The Stephen A. Smith Show.” Earlier in the day, I saw him tweet a message on Twitter (X) that said he was in the studio and he was taking calls in, so I decided I would give it a shot. I had no intentions of actually having the chance to talk to him but I decided to try anyway. His tweet had the number so I tried to call in and everytime I tried to call, the call would drop and say “Call Failed.” Then at one point, the phone started ringing and I panicked, but the panic ended quickly because the call dropped. So I was back to spamming the call button in hopes it would ring again. Finally, after 101 phone attempts, it started to ring... and ring... I thought maybe the call would drop again. All of a sudden, I heard a voice, it was the producer of the show.
He asked me, “name, where are you from, and what’s your question.” I answered his questions and then he told me that if I stayed on the phone I would have the chance to talk to him. At that point, I started shaking and was very nervous. I waited on the phone for about 40 minutes until I was able to ask my question to him but I got to listen to his show over the phone which I found pretty cool. I wish I had the chance to ask him a different question because I did not feel confident in my question and I panicked and felt rushed when I had to give my question. My question I would have asked him was if the Dallas Cowboys should move on from Dak Prescott because he is passionate when talking about the Cowboys.
