WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 11: The legacy of “The Nasty Nice Guy Awards” two decades later

Back in 1996, Nestor was working with the Ed Block Courage Awards to raise money and awareness and dreamed up a Baltimore banquet that would bring together all of the local professional sports teams to honor the good people who play the games. The Nasty Nice Guy Awards hosted exclusively at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie lasted eight years and raised over $150,000 for local charities. The late, great Bobby Nyk played the tunes and we partied for a purpose with a lot of very recognizable faces. Elrod Hendricks represented the Baltimore Orioles every year so you know it was the place to be! Ask anyone who attended these incredible nights about their pictures with Cal Ripken, Ray Lewis, Art Donovan, Mike Flanagan, Jon Ogden, Gov. William Donald Schaefer, Brian Billick, Fang Mitchell and so many others.

Dear John and Louis Angelos: Are you a Rocky – or a Bullwinkle?

The sons of Peter Angelos got a "Dear Orioles" letter from Nestor back in July 2018 encouraging them to step forward and run a legitimate local baseball franchise. Now in the aftermath of the Kevin Brown suspension fiasco at MASN, any sensible fan would realize what we're up against as a community with a born-on-third and thinks he hit a triple Fredo with a penchant for punishment like his old man.
