The Peter Principles (Ch. 4) – The Dumb Dumb error begins in Baltimore

The Ballad of Davey Johnson begins in Baltimore in 1996. All he ever did was win baseball games. He and Peter Angelos never agreed on much. And then he was gone. Here's the whole story through the eyes of the journalists who covered it.

The Peter Principles (Ch. 3): Giving Peter The Ball, Scabs and The Angelos NFL Franchise in Baltimore

Peter Angelos did everything in his power to give Baltimore the NFL ball in 1994. Here's the whole story...and the 2131 Cal Ripken night when Orioles fans booed him off the dais and he was never to be seen in front of Baltimore fans ever again.

The Peter Principles (Ch. 2): The error of tyranny at Camden Yards

This is Chapter 2 of The Peter Principles, a book chronicling the Baltimore Orioles ownership tenure of Peter G. Angelos. In the early days, getting rid of DeWitt and Lucchino was easy but winning proved to be much more difficult for King Peter.

Dear Steve Bisciotti: Ask Chad Steele what he thinks I said about Sage so I can tell Ravens fans why I was really exterminated

“What did do you do wrong, Nestor?” “Why would the Ravens throw you out?” “Why are you the only one in the local media whom they’ve thrown out?” “Why have they treated you this way?” “WHAT DID YOU DO WRONG!?!” I am fed up with these questions from Baltimore sports fans so I wrote to the owner because these questions are his to answer. Letters to John Harbaugh and Eric DeCosta are also coming soon.

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...

Chronicling the history of the Peter Angelos era of Orioles baseball, local sports radio host, author and historian Nestor Aparicio presents "The Peter Principles," a book on the history of Baltimore baseball in the modern era.

WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 1: The New Orleans Super Bowl 2:52 march in February that you’ll never forget

If you were in New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII on February 3, 2013, you were probably down at the river meeting us the greatest purple march in the history of the Baltimore Ravens fan base. Thousands of you met us at the Natchez down at the Mississippi River to march 17 blocks at 2:52 to watch Joe Flacco throw and the lights go out at the Superdome. Where were you in the parade of purple on Poydras?

WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 2: The powerful message of Free The Birds to awful Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos

We did our best and this remains the pride of all of the work of Nestor Aparicio: exposing the truth about the awfulness of the Orioles ownership stewardship of the Baltimore Orioles over three decades. The "FREE THE BIRDS" rally was held on September 21, 2006. It was 18 years ago and the team has posted just four winning seasons since then. Peter Angelos heard the voices of the Baltimore baseball fans that day. So did most of America...
