With summer vacation about to commence in the NFL, we'll take a deep dive on the AFC North competition this month. First up, Will Graves of the Associated Press in Pittsburgh talks Steelers and state of Pirates baseball in The Burgh with Nestor as Mike Tomlin preps 'yins for his 17th season in black and gold.
This is Chapter 20 of "Purple Reign 2: Faith, Family & Football – A Baltimore Love Story." Author and radio host and entrepreneur Nestor Aparicio is releasing the 2013 book chapter by chapter daily to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Ravens Super Bowl win in New Orleans.
As colleagues at Sporting News Radio two decades ago, Dan Pompei joined Nestor almost daily to discuss the NFL. Now covering the league for The Athletic, Pompei charts the progress of Lamar Jackson and the first-place Ravens as the schedule gets thicker.
“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.
Fresh off the field in Owings Mills, our Baltimore Positive sports insider Luke Jones gets you ready for a wet TV weekend of Orioles baseball and the Colts return to Baltimore on The Dennis Koulatsos Show, heard on WNST-AM 1570 on Thursday (3-to-5 p.m.) and again on Sunday morning before the Ravens game.
Hollywood Casino Perryville sportsbook manager Christian Horton makes sure that Nestor isn't getting too cocky with his NFL picks heading into Week 3. Imagine his record if he didn't pick against the Ravens in Cincinnati?
