Having a blast at Camden Yards with friends

Beating the Yankees is always a rare and beautiful sight for any Orioles fan to witness and behold. But, as Nestor Aparicio explained to Luke Jones, it's more fun whilst sitting over the New York dugout heckling Juan Soto, Aaron Judge and Anthony Rizzo every time they fail in another Orioles Magic beat down of the Bronx Bombers at Camden Yards with friends.

Search no further for better words of wisdom for David Rubenstein and “Next Chapter” of Orioles baseball in Baltimore

If you want to know the real history of Baltimore baseball, you ask the folks who authored the story of Orioles Magic. Charles Steinberg comes back to Baltimore to hail Larry Lucchino and the real heroes of Camden Yards and saving the Orioles – and offers his best wisdom and native advice to new owner David Rubenstein from his Worcester Woo Sox seat at Polar Park.

How will the “next chapter” of Orioles ownership communicate with traumatized Baltimore fan base?

It's been 18 years since local communication and public relations guru Greg Abel created the "We're Not Gonna Take It" video after Nestor Aparicio led "Free The Birds" to communicate some uncomfortable truths to Peter Angelos.

Debunking the local media myth: Peter Angelos did not “save” the Orioles for Baltimore

Many people reached to Nestor Aparicio in the aftermath of the death of Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos looking for some kind of pronouncement. After watching the media reports in Baltimore with various inaccuracies about the billionaire lawyer's real accomplishments, Luke Jones joined him to react and opine and to set the legacy straight for local citizens who have been fed various levels of myth, poppycock and fake history.

Where is Steve Biscotti hiding? And why…

With our crew in Florida for Orioles spring training and a new beginning for the baseball franchise, Luke Jones and Nestor wonder aloud where and why the Ravens' owner might be seeking quiet shelter while the rest of his billionaire partners convene at the NFL Owners Meetings in Orlando this week to count their money. (We'll be there, too! Like we always are...)
