In my efforts to find the best possible candidates for our Baltimore Sports Media Superstar competition, presented by Hooters, I’ve been rummaging through many of my oldest memories of being young and hungry and determined to make my dream of being involved in sports journalism a reality.

As many of you know, I worked as a sports writer and agate clerk at The Baltimore Evening Sun from 1986 through 1992. In my second year on Calvert Street, WJZ-TV 13 held an open competition to become the weekend sports anchor. My experience at the newspaper helped me “get a read” — as you’ll read my humorous take on below. This was from the fall of 1988 and I was encouraged by my girlfriend to send a postcard in and most of the rest is in the story below.

If you’re interested in becoming a Baltimore Sports Media Superstar, please read all of the details here. WNST is hosting all candidates during July and doing on-air tryouts with a $1,000 prize and a weekend show at WNST.net & AM 1570.

In the meantime, enjoy what my boss Jack Gibbons published as my editor when he asked me to write about my experience back in November 1988.

I had just turned 20 years old.

One day, I’m going to bust out the videotape and get it to the WNSTV channel on YouTube.

But for now, enjoy some tales from the Nasty crypt…
