Like all Baltimore sports fans, we've waited a lifetime to host an AFC Championship Game. Sunday evening stands as one of the greatest nights in the history of local sports. Dennis Koulatsos and Nestor discuss the magic and history of hosting the biggest game – or event – possible in the stadium we built three decades ago for nights just like this one.
It took Baltimore nearly 53 years to earn the hosting privilege of the biggest football game that is not the Super Bowl. Bill Cole joins Nestor in celebrating the civic victory of the Ravens hosting the AFC Championship Game for the first time in their 28-year history in the Charm City.
As the All Star break prepares Orioles fans for an exciting second half of pennant race baseball, Nestor tells Dennis Koulatsos that seeing happy Reds fans in Baltimore and the excitement around Elly De La Cruz in Cincinnati this month is a sign of hope for Orioles fans packing Camden Yards again sometime soon.
Peter Angelos never cared for Hall of Fame broadcaster Jon Miller. Angelos thought Miller was too critical of the Orioles. But mostly, his old world sensibilities didn’t like the style of Jon Miller as the voice of his baseball franchise.
Our Chief Digital Officer Mike Rosenfeld offered Nestor a chance to be a suite life guy for the recent Journey and Toto concert at CFG Bank Arena and wanted his feedback. Comedy and music and Danny DeVito and PacMan and free booze and why Edie Brown needs a room named after her at the former Baltimore Civic Center.
As the NFL Combine gathers in Indianapolis, Luke Jones and Nestor discuss the Ravens' decisions on the franchise tag for Justin Madubuike and where to go in April for offensive linemen and more depth across the roster as the inevitable offseason attrition continues.
Our resident Super Bowl XXXV champion and hot yoga devotee Femi Ayandabejo joins Nestor for a spirited debate about mental fitness, personal strength and Ravens football and the importance of giving back on Crab Cake Row: A Cup Of Soup Or Bowl from Faidley's for the Maryland Food Bank.
We began the second day of our "A Cup Of Soup Or Bowl Week" from Costas Inn with a large donation from our CC&A pal Steve Taormino, who partners with Vehicles For Change, a local organization with national ties that helps folks with transportation and transforms lives.
