This is Chapter 2 of The Peter Principles, a book chronicling the Baltimore Orioles ownership tenure of Peter G. Angelos. In the early days, getting rid of DeWitt and Lucchino was easy but winning proved to be much more difficult for King Peter.
Chronicling the history of the Peter Angelos era of Orioles baseball, local sports radio host, author and historian Nestor Aparicio presents "The Peter Principles," a book on the history of Baltimore baseball in the modern era. This is Chapter 1, an incredible tale of how King Peter found the throne of every local kid's dream.
Spending a March evening in State College waiting on Bruce Springsteen and watching Nittany Lions fans prepare for basketball March Madness, Nestor noticed the wrestling thing and asked the longtime basketball color voice of Happy Valley Dick Jerardi to explain "We Are" and talk Big 10 basketball, Bob Baffert and Kentucky Derby hopefuls.
“When you go into the lion’s den, you don’t tippy-toe in. You carry a spear! You go in screaming like a banshee and say, Where is the son of a bitch?” The legend and #PurpleReign lore of #RavensFlock win in Nashville and Ray Lewis > Eddie George. @NestorAparicio presents his 2001 SB35 epic tale.
The Marching Ravens leader John Ziemann joins Nestor to reminisce about old Memorial Stadium tales and the time Lou Grant took him around town to learn the magic of the Baltimore Colts marching band. Did you see "The Fanatics" or "The Fumbleheads" back in the 1990s?
