We call them wise conversation. So try to do this with Andy, when he opened last year and the place was such a sensation here, right like you’re a kid from Perry Hall. Nick, right. I mean, Nick runs the honeycomb atone which one you because there’s some confusion as to which one is which?

Nick Fischer  01:17

I mean, well, you have the Perry Hall original one. And that’s the one rate on seven courts in East Java. And that was there

Nestor Aparicio  01:25

that’s the one I knew about what I didn’t even know how to pronounce wise. Yes, some people still call the Weasleys right.

Nick Fischer  01:30

Wise, eat better spend less. That’s why eat right eat right. So the one that I run though is the honey go one. Right on honey go Boulevard. Bellaire Road

Nestor Aparicio  01:41

intersection, but it was 20 years ago when I

Nick Fischer  01:43

lived out here right cornfield right corner. It was a cornfield. And 18 years ago, 20 years ago, before the Manhattan grill and laboratories. They had all that and there was a White House right there. And that’s the one that I run so called Honey, go call it Perry Hall. I call it shopping

Nestor Aparicio  02:00

your store and it really offends you. It bothers you because I shop and all the other whatever. You’re just a little further away from where I live that it’s not. When I leave here today I said to my wife, I said do you need me to pick anything up? Because we’re getting toward the weekend? It’s playoffs, all that madness. And I’m like, do we need milk and anything? She Yes, stop wise. I’m like, okay. No excuse to not come into your store today. New Forge to forge the honey. Don’t get me down there for the Halloween thing and sell me on the family farm movie, Candy night and all that stuff. That Nico good. It did. It is good turnout. It is good seeing you. Huh? Definitely three or four months.

Nick Fischer  02:42

Yeah, October, October, but no, it did. It turned out good. I mean, you get the whole community involved. They they love it the toll the whole shopping center. They’re all involved in it. You know, it’s a it’s a really good we’ll do a couple movies a couple of times a year, the shopping center does it and they just happen to do it in our parking lot. And the community loves it. There’s

Nestor Aparicio  03:00

an interesting community there and Ally was because I sort of made fun of so it was a swamp you’re like it’s a cornfield. It was a place people didn’t live 20 years. I lived in Perry Hall for 15 years. Right. I came with Barry Ohio, we talked about that. Right? So I mean, I lived where the black Mussolini’s is, like on the backside of where that would be. Spring house. I live the second time over by King Avenue in the Bumi temple right over by like where the duck farm was right? Yep. So I live twice. I laid an apartment I had a house so I’m talking to turn of the century, the wise market and seven quarts was like that was the I shopped there a lot because it was the closest supermarket in my house at the time, right? So and I still I pronounced waste the whole time or Yeah, I probably did. This is 9095 96 when we had the big snowstorm I see everybody sharing the blizzard. I live there. Yeah, that’s right. So I will just say for like all of this area, I didn’t know whether I lived in Nottingham Whitemarsh Perry Hall Fullerton. There’s a whole I don’t know where the lines of demarcation it

Nick Fischer  04:05

is it is interesting because it’s it is Perry Hall, but it’s also Nottingham I mean back in the day it was Perry Hall and then it was German town at one point what you think a German town German town and it was in like 1880 or 1860s at so much. But like well you got Nottingham so forge road which is right here. You got new Forge and you got Forge. Okay. Right down here on Route seven Philadelphia road you got Gunpowder Falls, right?

Nestor Aparicio  04:32

So you’ve seen all this change during your lifetime?

Nick Fischer  04:34

I have so 1750s The gunpowder was a lot higher. Okay, because they didn’t have the little dam in at Loch Raven reservoir off the water right and they lowered the level they used to bring ships up here tall ships. There is a ferry that ran from in the 1750s right here. It’s called the long calm and knots were a lot 70 right these Nottingham forge road. They had the Nottingham forge I was right down here. And the gunpowder furnace and they built it was metal. I like iron products and battleship parts from 1750 to 1850 into a flood took it out.

Nestor Aparicio  05:16

Right here a mile from here a mile and Eric down there. Wow,

Nick Fischer  05:19

that’s why that’s forge road. Well New Forge, but the original Forge, Nottingham Forge, and then you got the area Nottingham and you got Perry Hall. It was German town at one point and then that was absorbed into Perry Hall. And it’s changed.

Nestor Aparicio  05:32

You grew up behind where Conrad’s is which wabbit called Perry in, right?

Nick Fischer  05:36

I actually grew up on seven courts. Oh, I was on seven courts. And then when I bought my house 12 years ago, I bought a house. Yeah, I moved to the northern end of Fairfax. I

Nestor Aparicio  05:47

knew you live really close to Conrad, because you didn’t show me like a year ago there. And that was my corner. But yeah, I didn’t know that you grew up there not because there’s pretty far out in the 80s At least, I mean, I have kids that lived in Perry Hall, were all of this area. I mean, I saw White Marsh mall, become a mall in 1981, you know, I remember was a real watch, right? So seeing all of these changes up here, the area where your store is, is most interesting to me. Because I am of the age where I watch that go from nothing from to a community, literally when you say you’re having family events and things in the parking lot and people coming together, I’m thinking how many people live within a walk a mile they can walk because of the way the houses were built there, and the density of population there and the beautiful park that was built and the fact that the road was always closed down, down by the mall. Where Qasem is is it’s close for the whole time. Period, 15 years, the minute I left like 2000 to 2003 that’s what that’s what it opened. Alright,

Nick Fischer  06:48

so it would just turn, you would just turn. I didn’t know

Nestor Aparicio  06:51

that hill was something of a horror movie like they don’t there’s a sign that says Road closed. And you know, people in government said Amen. They’re gonna build a whole community over there. There’s funding. I don’t know anything about any of that. Right. Next thing I know roads are in there’s a beautiful park. And I’m thinking why don’t we Perry Hall was beautiful up here. They call it honey go down, right?

Nick Fischer  07:10

Yep. Honey, go run. I mean, I remember when that road road wasn’t even there. And you’re talking the 90s. Right? Because you would you would leave the mall, you would go straight. And then you had to turn left on Ebenezer, who just you just went left there was it was just

Nestor Aparicio  07:25

high school, you’re gonna go to high school, you will go to Outback Steakhouse, right? That’s where

Nick Fischer  07:29

you’re going. And then they cut that through and like they started building I guess, cutting that route in 2000 2001. Right. And like you said it was just closed. And then all of a sudden, 2003 2004 boom, it’s open. There’s a whole community their

Nestor Aparicio  07:42

right foot, three popped up. And then the backside of the Ghost Road down where Michaels is on the way to to Martin’s. I mean, that road had years of jealous, erode and nothing else. And right now we see these communities pop up, but your community where you’re wise is I mean, I just literally remember people moving into that community. I remember the restaurants that were there. Yeah, I just remember everything about

Nick Fischer  08:05

even like where the library is at not too long ago, really. I mean, like, what 15 years ago, they moved the Perry Hall library it was on belay road. And now it’s right there across from one of the parks right there. Right before right before we get to like,

Nestor Aparicio  08:20

if I had David Marks, cornfield or fat Johnny o here today, we would just talk about the evolution of all because you talk about whatever political thing that made the dam happen change the waterway in gunpowder and I’m knocking my monitoring over thank God there’s nothing to drink and that’s why I keep my drink smart. While Nick is here from wise marks Nick Fisher we were at with love from Baltimore. We’re at GNA I tried to get the show here last year I’ve never had his crabcake by the way,

Nick Fischer  08:48

no had a million hotdogs I haven’t I’ve actually I haven’t eaten here. They moved here we’re

Nestor Aparicio  08:53

gonna change things right now that he’s gonna tell you that his restaurant when he’s gonna come on through Andy is gonna come on 330 And part of the story here is this. Much like my company, right? Like my little Baltimore company is like a barn raising for Baltimore. I’ve been here an hour and a half. I’ve had eight people come up, go Wait, he pulled my hair. The worst of my wife wanted to take a picture of you witnessed this out front. So but this is the most local of local establishments and I’ll tell you why. Because Andy in 19 I was born in 68. My dad and I probably started taking the bus to Memorial Stadium as I remember it in 7475 76. So colts games in that era. So you’re talking per Jones Orioles games today. Are you talking li Mei can singleton out Bumbry Palmer, you know all of that. The GNA was on the block where you had to transfer the bus Okay, so I lived in Colgate eastpoint mall you take the 23 up Eastern Avenue and you get off the bus a golden berths which I think now is like a wall. Walgreens right when you first pull an island down and you Would you would walk a block over to Bank Street behind Epstein’s and you would get on the number 22 bus transfer and the 22 bus would take you right to Memorial Stadium. Okay, so my whole childhood all during the 70s A lot of the 80s this is the way all of us all the neighborhood kids, my dad always had a ball cap on Ken Kim knows this right? So we would transfer and when you would transfer and this is my dad that worked at the point. This is in the 70s Reggie Jackson’s playing for the Orioles. 179 Orioles, and my dad we I was 10 years old the summer 79, right. We get up to Highland town we’d have to transfer and my dad is Hey, hey, hey, not paying ballpark prices, the hotdogs are 50 cents at the ballpark. They’re 15 cents over 2020 cents over GNA we get string hotdogs. So you can be a little chunky monkey like I was when I you know because I ate too much. So I was like a catcher like engelberg and badgers bears. So my dad would all we would always go off to GNA. And it was always in the window. And they had to hotdogs in the window. And they had to hamburgers in the little silver, that and the onions. And it was always in the window and the GNA was in the neon light. And globs was next door in shock. It’s an ex dines and like the GAO that tends bar at CHI Costas, her family’s jaegers music from Island 10. So this is a highland town institution. It GNA behind town. 100 years, I don’t know ask Andy a million as long as I’ve been around. And last year, Andy decided to move his business out here and sold the business in the city. I mean, I’ll get hotdogs in Andy’s arm the last 20 years. Brian Billick spent in the place I’ve had paint my mom at pancakes with Andy in Highland town. She moved down here and the place was so popular when it opened. I mean, televisions were out here radios out here. Celebrities out here and he’s out here. And he his son and my wife have had a similar challenge in life with cancer and battling and Johns Hopkins. So we’re more connected. And I couldn’t get out here to do the show. Because I had to find a time when there’s like space. There was right to get in when I came in. Yeah. When I came in at 1215. I couldn’t get this table. I think we all get a seat in the bar. Yeah. So I know how crowded it is. So it’s taken a long time. So I really want to honor the neighborhood. You’re in the neighborhood his car. He knew you. Yeah, he came over. So yeah, you’re from my wise markets. So I mean, that’s the kind of community vibe that I think all the wise stores try to do that every business wants to be local and wants to feel local. You want to have that vibe. But moving the business out here. It’s it’s been it’s been great. We’re gonna describe it. He will tell you this goes back to the original story about what you need to get here. He would say that his place was the first place in Baltimore to serve fresh cut french fries, with gravy. gravy on French fries was not. I mean, you see in some shops. When I grew up in and have tacos in Baltimore, it’s hard for a kid your age to understand but, but like when I was a kid, there was taco and that was it. There was no tacos. Yeah, we didn’t even know what a taco was like, you know, we thought it was the thing at Taco Bell. Taco right there. But I would just say for French fries and gravy. He will tell you that 100 years ago, his grandfather, that curry is one of the first ones to do this. Wow.

Nick Fischer  13:27

That’s no that that is interesting.

Nestor Aparicio  13:30

We always try to teach me No. Gravy is more important than his program than that.

Nick Fischer  13:36

I’m surprised I honestly don’t know that. I’m surprised. I don’t know that.

Nestor Aparicio  13:39

I want to brag on wise mark. It’s because I haven’t had Jamie on. I had Christine on and here’s the problem. And I told Christina this and I told Hannah right. And Hannah loves you because she’s like you’re making me the bad guy. I said when I have a handle on we talked about eating all the food and we talked for the holidays and in tailgating and special platters and when I’m Christina and we talk about Alright, yay, too much of that dirt. So I definitely do Christmas night. The guy that saved my wife’s life was in from Germany. So my wife brought desserts. From New Hampshire. He brought desserts from German beer from Germany. I brought desserts from wise markets. Pennsylvania Dutch my favorite Chelsea’s bakehouse. I got him special mousse. I had eggnog ice cream I had

Nestor Aparicio  14:59

Have you want to share with you an excuse? No, no, no. This is because this is not even me trying to promote wise markets, but I’m going to promote wise markets. The reason I cannot come and get any more ice cream from him is because the freezer is full fifth. And here’s why it’s full because of your app. And I don’t know how many points I have right now I’m going to open my app up and prove to you because I got embarrassed last year Hannah wanted me to open the app and I didn’t know the password right. So I know you had trouble two other times. Session expired. I gotta remember my password now.

Nick Fischer  15:36

And I you know, I love that coconut water. And they have that at Towson. So I went in there and I bought like, no kid like 18 Coconut waters to add six to yourself because they did that take you up to the 400 I had some I bought a Pantone a I bought some stuff to try to get me to 400 so I could get the ham. So I went in and I put the ham off a couple days and went and of course I forgot things and went back in. Found some extra eggnog because it was extra eggnog going on that so I picked that up. And I came home and I had I had a ham 14 by a giant hand 14 pan. It’s just two of us. Right? So we made the ham and this is the tradition. My wife goes back to why’s she picks up the butter beans, lima beans. And then she picks up split peas. And then she picks up the onions, the Holy Trinity onions, the garlic and the and the onions, garlic and carrots. And she gets that thing going and she’s got this giant pot and she made she used the bone for the split pea. She mints the ham up into the bean soup. She made a giant vat of Split Pea. She had to go back out and buy little plastic containers to contain them. We have a little sucker of the air sucker thing that you buy with the bags and she dates him. I looked in the freezer when I came in with the eggnog and she’s she yelled at me mister she was it was like having my mother honestly. She’s like no ice cream. No way. We were already room. And I’m like, if they have eggnog I’m getting right. He didn’t have it. Because I was in. I was in the Comedy Store. They didn’t have it. So the other night I went in alone without her. We had a mouse and I had to get a mouse trap. And I got a mousetrap it was

Nick Fischer  18:02

and then you’re like let me just go past the ice cream aisle.

Nestor Aparicio  18:06

Last eggnog that I thought until I the only go store. So I came home and had the eggnog and I swear open the freezer. And she was right. There’s no room. There’s been soup stack six bags, and there’s six bags of split pea and here’s the rub and cans here and my kid doesn’t listen. My kid listens to the show. He’s gonna hear this. Last year we gave because we moved this time last year we had to clean the freezer and we gave my son and his wife two bags of split pea and two bags of bean. And they she says is the best split pea. She’s my wife split pea soups crazy. She won’t they want more of it. And I’m like, Here you go. We didn’t make enough this year. We we don’t have enough. Sorry. You know, but now we have the ice cream.

Nick Fischer  18:50

You’re like well hold up man.

Nestor Aparicio  18:53

My son, you know, but I love him but I don’t want to give him my split pea soup. Because I it’s my stash. You know,

Nick Fischer  19:00

don’t give him any one he lit here’s this you can bet he’s probably gonna so this

Nestor Aparicio  19:04

is what I’m saying here about wise markets. Is that like I got this ham I saved up for points. I even remember my password. You saw me come up with it on the fly, right? I’ve only got 67 points. But I love the holidays man. Holidays are the best and the leftovers are the best for me. And I’ve been eating I finally got rid of the pan atony I finally got rid of the Tate’s cinnamon sugar cookies that I picked up with a special foil bag. I’m a I’m a sucker for holiday desserts. So I put on I put on about eight or nine pounds. So I’m trying to get better and now I came in here and I ordered two sliders. And he brought me three sliders. What’s going on why you guys are doing so? We had heart yet? I rounded up for something the other day?

Nick Fischer  19:46

Well, it’s so yeah, it’s the American Heart Association round up. So we’re doing that we’re actually see $60 And you’re right, you didn’t round it up because we’re doing that for two months. So we’re doing that for all the January and all of February. So while you can just round up at self checkout, and then starting on February 1, if you go through a regular lane, you’ll actually be able to do $1 donation. $3 donation $5 donation. Nice. So that will start on February. So yeah, we’re doing American Heart Association, which, I mean, it’s it’s a great question. It was

Nestor Aparicio  20:20

the other way when I got the egg note, I literally was just flipping through the pad and I always round off I just always hit the green it was it was 91 cents like I was when it’s like six cents. I feel like a heel right, like I have to add $1 So I had it on. So I round it up and I I was just in a hurry. You know, I was like we had a mouse i The mousetraps peanut butter. Apparently we haven’t caught the damn thing. My wife who’s a slow wife comes upstairs and says, We have a big problem. And I’m like, alright, we solve cancer twice. We’ll figure this out. You know? She’s like, holds a picture off of the mouse. I’m like Yeah, time to take a picture of it. I’m like, what? We haven’t seen it since so I don’t know. I mean, I don’t I said to her for more for the picture. I wouldn’t believe it just gone. Why is Marcus has everything? Like really? I mean, I thought I would have to go to you know, one of the big depot places or wait like I just didn’t give you you don’t think but you as the manager people would be shocked at what you stock really? You would?

Nick Fischer  21:24

Yeah, I mean, I mean you can get air filters for your house. You wouldn’t even think that what you need air filters for your house. What I’ll right next to the mousetraps I didn’t see

Nestor Aparicio  21:33

him I wasn’t looking for her.

Nick Fischer  21:35

But they’re they’re really they’re there. I mean, you can get honestly anything. We probably have some form of it. Do you stock a pizza Johnson squares pizzas in your zip? Yep, gone both rain and rain. Oh, man. This is what I was talking

Nestor Aparicio  21:49

to Jamie last week from wise markets. And he said of all the things that are beautiful about wise, Sunbury, Pennsylvania, you got a lot of local people buy in Mars, like you know, you come from that background as well. I talked about GNA being Highland town to all of this, the local part of local stuff and like that special sandwich to the belt garden sandwich. And I see even more like the walk and foot the the burger cookies, the what there’s another brand of cookies that I’ve never really had. That’s a local brand. autobahn, autobahn. That’s when I met Audubon Irvine

They’re pizza John’s there. They’re local, or I’ve never had the burger cookie people on but I know you stalk them a lot of you know, places stalk them. And I just think that that’s that’s local support local. That’s that’s the best part of all of this. Yeah, it is. I see that a lot like with your desserts and stuff, too. But why is deserts have like a southern Pennsylvania, you have a lot of really cool regional kinds of things that I see the label and I see it came from a farm an hour from here, right, right. Yep. And I know your produce is like that.

Nick Fischer  23:15

Perfect day would be a day like 50 degree a nice day. Today nice day, but in winter

Nick Fischer  27:15

didn’t like if I was off today, I would probably be out right now hiking around looking for something.

Nestor Aparicio  27:22

My wife would like your every time I mentioned my your hobby to my wife, my wife. She goes out in the woods and she finds she rummages for stuff. I mean, she she looks for it. When she’s out there. She’s looking for animals and birds and whatnot. But she will always come across stuff.

Nick Fischer  27:38

I mean, I’ve I’ve walked sometimes just off a trail, you’re 20 foot off of a normal trail that everyone else takes will go off of the trail. I have found a beer bottle that’s been sitting there for 120 years. Sitting right there.

Nestor Aparicio  27:52

Well, who would pick it up? I mean,

Nick Fischer  27:56

they don’t go nobody goes. Nobody goes Australe. Right, right. I

Nestor Aparicio  27:58

mean, if they pick it up, they’re gonna put it in their satchel, typically take it over as a souvenir, whatever may be right, but they’re not out there looking to Carnac thing. No, they’re not quite as crazy a deer one day. Yeah. But it’s just crazy of

Nick Fischer  28:11

what you can find in just a normal spot. That nobody you wouldn’t think to go to now. But back then, like fire roads. You know, if you go out to like the reservoir, Loch Raven reservoir and hiking around the fire roads, they’re not fire roads. They were never fire roads. They’re fire roads now because it just happened to be a road that somebody took to get to their house. And then the city bought it and they bought the reservoir, they bought all the land. And now it’s just a fire road in case. You know, emergency vehicles need to get back there for somebody that might hurt themselves hiking, or if there actually is a fire. But that was an actual road to somebody’s house. They didn’t that was not a fire road. It was a built to be there. No, it was not built for a fire road. So people used to travel that all the time. And then I’ll go out looking for it.

Nestor Aparicio  28:57

All right, man. Well, anybody wants to is there a society that does this, like a group of people,

Nick Fischer  29:01

they actually we have a group of friends that I’ll go out with, but there is like a bought at Baltimore bottle club. I’m not part of it. My friends are. But yeah, there is a group of people who will get together and you can talk about that. I think it’s

Nestor Aparicio  29:12

cool. And you know, again, I talked about the literally within the last five days since I contacted you this radioactive, but I’ll send it over to you. And

Nick Fischer  29:20

you have to send that to me. So I can look at it because I don’t know what that is. But it sounds interesting. And we’ve got to find we may have found it before. I just don’t know. All right. Well,

Nestor Aparicio  29:31

dare I say the great Tony della Rose is going to be joining me at some point here. before it’s all over with also Mike Chu former WJC, who is a storyteller extraordinaire is going to come by and teach me some things and catch up and he’s a huge Ravens fan as well. He and I used to run each other on ravens road trips, and anything else going on.

Nick Fischer  29:49

Yeah, I mean, so we got you know, we obviously we got the big game coming up. And we’re the obviously you want to be the tailgating headquarters for it so you can get your party planners We’re going to have all that ready to go and then one of the really cool holidays which you know why is does it best they do is Valentine’s I know this strawberries you John know it. I know this, that’s where I’m going with it. So from February 12 to February 14, you will be able to get your long stem chocolate dip, strawberries and these strawberries are beautiful. I mean they’ll fit your ship. Fresh tips, you can place your order my wife, I mean, or you can get white chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate dark chocolates, the best darn I have a dark, dark chocolate

Nestor Aparicio  30:33

I like white chocolate, but I’m a dark eyed dark jock. I’m all I’m not empty milk chocolate, I just will never pick it

Nick Fischer  30:39

in if dark is dark available. I’m getting dark we’ll never get and actually did a DNA test. You know, DNA tests you can do? Yeah, 20 government government’s got my DNA now. But they said I have a gene that prefers dark chocolate. Well, there’s actually a gene that you can have that prefers dark chocolate. And it’s funny because I love dark chocolate. So just little fun. Just a little, just a little fun. You might want to but you know, I mean Valentine’s back to it. I mean, in our in our meat department seafood, you will be able to get that you can get your job. You can get the tomahawks you’ll be able to get lobster tails, surf and turf. We’ll have the meal for two in the nice hearts and everything. cut fruit. I mean, it’s just

Nestor Aparicio  31:24

it don’t give her battle chocolate. Don’t give him Yeah, I’m just thinking more. I’m thinking about my strategy on this. You know, my wife gave them to me last year, she gave them to herself first because I saw the package. I was at the Super Bowl there that week and you guys didn’t like on the Friday. This was like maybe the 12 last year you guys didn’t like the night tents left. She came out and participated in my in my absence. And she’s very pleased with herself. You know? Who doesn’t love strawberries

Nick Fischer  31:53

dipped in? Well, it’s gonna be it’s gonna be the same thing this year too. Because

Nestor Aparicio  31:57

I’m in 12 and then 14 I’m not going to the Super Bowl this year, the National Football League. It’s breaking news. This made they’ve made sure they’ve told me I’m not I’m not allowed to come there. Let my kind in

Nick Fischer  32:11

28 years sorry to hear that.

Nestor Aparicio  32:15

I’m displeased to say the least. But the good news is I get strawberries

Nick Fischer  32:18

that’s you will get strawberries and then any point you got left over. But honestly the one the one good thing with coins

Nestor Aparicio  32:25

I can use points for strawberries.

Nick Fischer  32:27

No no not with strawberries. But like just I’m saying at the end of the month when when you have your points because I was going back to where you said you had 67 points. One of like the best thing that you can use 100 points for right now is 18 Count eggs. Dollar and 49 $1.49 for an eight discount if you use 100 points dollar 49 All right so yeah, there’s no points for Valentine’s but you’re accumulating points right now till the 28th All right, I think we’re I’m pretty sure it’s from January 1 to the 28th points are accumulating and are somewhere in that time. And you can use those points for again your gas you know gas going down a little bit. So thanks that’s nice you can get a gallon of milk for $1.79 with 100 points but the real big one is the eggs. If I’m going to I’m going to use mine for some eggs is $1.49 for 18 Count eggs you cannot beat that

Nestor Aparicio  33:29

yeah eggs and you guys get beaten up at the market right when prices go up. It’s like getting the guests they should beat them get like we’ve been an inflation situation I mean all of our a couple years ago is tomatoes remember this right let me tomatoes went up the eggs thing that they do you understand it?

Nick Fischer  33:45

Yeah, I mean what’s its, I mean it always goes it goes back to those events that have happened. And then the avian flu it all stems back to that Sure. And then obviously the farmers and etc down the line, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. So it eventually will you’ll will get out of the deal. You gotta do its point get the points the points are

Nestor Aparicio  34:06

67 points by the time I get a gallon of milk and I come in there and you sell me eggnog peppermint ice cream and all that good stuff

Nick Fischer  34:13

Right Now in Baltimore

Right Now in Baltimore

After 26 faithful purple seasons, the Ravens have bullied me out of my seats and denied my media access

This is my story. This is the truth. And it must be told. In its entirety because it's so outrageous as to be almost unbelievable. Covering the Ravens is all I’ve ever done professionally since the team arrived in Baltimore in 1996, and this is how I feed my family and pay my bills as a small local business and AM 1570 radio operator and entrepreneur.

#ColumnNes Regarding Lamar Jackson, the lack of maturity is a bigger issue than an ugly tweet

If Lamar Jackson regrets the statement to the fellow in Pennsylvania, he should’ve offered an apology to him. If he regrets the world seeing his ugly words, Jackson has a platform with a million followers and could’ve offered an apology. If it was truly “out of character,” then show your character and admit a mistake and move on.

Why did Chad Steele take my press credentials after 26 years of covering the Baltimore Ravens?

This is my story in my own words. Listen and learn about how the NFL treats the local media and avoids the tough questions and intimidates local media who have traveled and reported on Baltimore football since before Art Modell brought the Ravens here in 1995. What happened is wrong and here's why...
