This is Chapter 7 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 prepare for NFL season.
Nestor Aparicio tells Dennis Koulatsos about his aborted Jacksonville trip to cover the Ravens and Jaguars as a media professional and what is wrong about how franchises treat their communities. This one is spicy.
Lamar Jackson has a bad hip and many injuries questions remain for Sunday. Our WNST Baltimore Positive insider Luke Jones previews the gimpy Ravens trip to Jacksonville for a Thanksgiving weekend game with Trevor Lawrence and the improving Jaguars.
Sure, we love soccer but the "bring your business to Qatar" ads on Fox television during the World Cup games aren't convincing Bill Cole and Nestor that this is anything other than the bags of billions of corrupt dollars that it so apparently appears to be this month. The blotter on Blatter and the FIFA criminals has now produced a tournament in the middle of winter in a liar's lair.
In a wide-ranging chat about life in the big leagues, Mike Bordick is joined by Adam and Frank Kolarek in telling Nestor about the impact new rules and a pitch clock are about to have on the game of baseball and how we view the game will change in 2023.
