The Ravens came to Miami on Sept. 17, 2000, for the first time in their five-year existence and the fans from Baltimore were out in force. It was the first time a Baltimore football franchise had played in South Florida since Dan Marino’s rookie season. A lot had changed from that day in 1983.
Our trio of lifer baseball fans who have opined publicly for three decades discuss the Orioles, Major League Baseball and how to get the good people of Baltimore back to Camden Yards. Allen McCallum joined Don Mohler and Nestor Aparicio at El Guapo on the Maryland Crab Cake Tour presented by The Maryland Lottery less than an hour after the MLB lockout ended. This one was raw.
As the the torrid 2019 Baltimore Ravens were headed into the playoffs, Nestor reached to legendary defensive tackle Tony Siragusa to inquire about how he'd try to wrap up the fleet Lamar Jackson. As usual, part comedy and part science ensued with The Goose.
While the 2000 Baltimore Ravens will always receive credit from fans and foes alike for being the team that allowed the fewest points in NFL history – and punctuated that task with a defensive unit shutout in Super Bowl XXXV – only four men can properly put into perspective the pain, the growth and the joy of a group that ultimately captured greatness.
When David Modell died in early 2017, Nestor reached to many of the Super Bowl XXXV heroes and early Ravens players to discuss the Modell family and coming to Baltimore to built a legacy. Tony Siragusa discussed a magical time in sports history in our city and left poignant words behind. We mourn his death here at WNST Baltimore Positive.
We're used to being at the games. Or having friends over. Or being at an awesome place like Franco's in Catonsville. But what happens when tacos win and wings lose? Anyone else as superstitious about Ravens game day food spreads?
The Maryland Crab Cake Tour has brought together friends, sponsors and community members in a fun way. This time at Nacho Mama's in Towson, Dr. Steve Elliott of Elliott Chiropractic Life Center on Joppa Road joins Nestor for food, folks and fundamental education on his vocation of helping folks heal.
In search of the perfect Maryland crab cake, serendipity struck again as Heather Mizeur recommended 98 Cannon on the Chester River where she lives and Nestor's longtime pal Chris Golder happened to be the one running it. The lore and allure of the good life in Chestertown on the Eastern Shore.
Before Max's Taphouse was pouring your favorite craft beers, it was jamming out as popular music venue Max’s on Broadway. Rock and rolling into Fells Point music history with Max's owners Ron and Gail Furman.
It's been a while since Caps historian Ed Frankovic dropped by to talk hockey and playoffs with Nestor. As the Islanders play into June, this one got spicy three years after a Stanley Cup parade in D.C. and the Leonsis lies about bringing the chalice to Baltimore.
The football talk and Super Bowl XXXV win and haka dance at The Barn are all vivid memories from the era of the first purple miracle but we had some good times just singing Christmas songs and laughing...
When the Frank Zappa Experience came to the Modell, it gave Nestor a chance to ask Ahmet Zappa everything he always wanted to know about the bust at the Highlandtown Library. Plus, what's a hologram concert?
Nestor was writing about the lads from Philadelphia back when they were opening for Bon Jovi and shaking all night. Yes, that is his 1986 autographed Circus Magazine. This was a retrospective chat about all of the bombast of the hairspray era and surviving and thriving in Nashville.
