During the 2001 Westminster training camp of the inaugural HBO season of "Hard Knocks," Tony Siragusa and Nestor made some space at the Best Western and talked about what happens after you win the Super Bowl. We will miss The Goose.
The death of Tony Siragusa has us discussing every aspect of the Purple Reign magic surrounding Super Bowl XXXV and the greatest defense in the history of the game. Safety Kim Herring was drafted into a Baltimore Ravens uniform in 1997 and knew nothing about the franchise. Let him tell you about "the man of the people" – The Goose.
“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 minute Tony Siragusa landed on Rich Gannon, it was all over for the Oakland Raiders in the AFC Championship Game. Let @NestorAparicio take you back to The Black Hole and experience the day the Ravens went to their first Super Bowl.
On the fifth day of his 30-day, 30-crab cake journey in 2021, Nestor spent the morning at the J.M. Clayton crab picking facility in downtown Cambridge and rolled north to Chestertown to spend the afternoon discussing D.C. politics with Heather Mizeur.
"Better to have a few rats than to be one," wrote Baltimore Sun voice Peter Jensen, when our city was being attacked by the President of The United States. Now that Joe Biden has taken the wheel, we discuss Charm City rodents, the future of journalism and every challenge of the virus and vaccine.
Bringing influential Baltimoreans who live elsewhere "home" for three days of education to take back to the world about the current charms of Charm City. That is what Baltimore Homecoming is all about...
In our fourth round of sitdowns with local Baltimore Positive leaders in the community, Damian O'Doherty joins his fellow west sider Don Mohler and Dundalk's Nestor Aparicio to discuss how the areas surrounding the city will be necessary for the re-invention of our downtown and beyond.
Civil rights historian Michael Long has compiled these essays of Jackie Robinson, a complicated man who navigated an even more complicated world that both celebrated and despised him. Great stuff on his relationship with Richard Nixon in this one.
Bottom line: some of Nestor's favorite songs were written by this guy. Yours, too! If you love music – Kiss, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Michael Bolton, Kelly Clarkson, Ricky Martin, Alice Cooper – this is the man behind the words.
Longtime music promoter and band manager Dave Geller joins Nestor for a trip down local memory lane for concerts over three decades and what lies ahead for the festival world after the tragedy in Houston.
In the spring of 1994, Meat Loaf made a cameo as a ballpark guest from Oriole Park at Camden Yards on "The Budweiser Sports Forum" on WWLG-AM 1360. We'll find some more visits from the late, great baseball lover Marvin Aday over the years but this was the first chat, which includes co-host Mark Mussina, the brother of Hall of Famer Mike.
Longtime NFL insider Clark Judge goes from "Ghost To the Post" and Bert Jones birthday to Al Davis and Art Modell and Bob Irsay and John Elway how in the world the Oakland Raiders ever wound up in Las Vegas. What would Pete Rozelle make of this?
We lost the legendary Tommy Lasorda on Friday. Back in 2002, the Dodgers Hall of Famer joined Nestor here in Baltimore to talk about the changing state of baseball after chicks dug the long ball and the sport was drowning in PEDs.
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.
Nestor joined Dennis for a Super Bowl XLV preview and a chance to reflect on missing this one for the first time. And the first time he ever dreamed of going to one "Big Game" with his Pop and the lights went out...
