This week's guest is one like we've never had before on the show! We have an owner... of a FOOTBALL LEAGUE!

The guys are joined by the owner & director of league operations, of the American Arena League (AAL), AJ Roque! He jumps right into the Lounge and talks about it all!

When did the passion for football start? He talks about how many sports kept him busy, in high school, and which was his best. What went into his choice of the college he attended?

Conversation leads to Richey asking about what offenses translate into the arena game. The guys then ask about the differences between arena and full-field football. Is there REALLY a HUGE difference?

What led him, and his partner, to go into and buy the AAL? Immediately, what changes did they make? What was the reasoning for the league to take 2022 off?

What is the target athlete the AAL is looking for, to fill roster spots? Is it young ones? Grizzled veterans? What are the goals the league wants to accomplish?

There's talk about what is done "to relax," and the answer is a familiar one! What's AAL 2? Where does it hope to be, in the future?

There are TONS of conversation direction changes, and they are magnificent!

AJ talks about where in New Jersey he's at, and what allegiance he has in Major League Baseball... wanna guess who he roots for?! We don't know that you'll be able to guess!

AJ's passion for the game of football, and making sure the AAL succeeds is contagious! He wants to work for it to be successful, and is certainly on the right track! We had more to talk about, but our time was already running long... so you know what that means?! RETURN GUEST!

It's a great week with AJ Roque, owner/director of league operations, of the American Arena League! SO, sit back, relax & #grabalisten

**SPECIAL NOTE**
Our hangout was recorded to be streamed, simultaneously, on our Facebook page, as well as on ASAP Network, the day following the published date of the audio episode. With that being said, the audio quality was a little spotty, in places, because of connections not working 100% the right way. IT'S STILL AUDIBLE (except for one spot that needed to be cut out), and the content is fantastic, too!
