Purple Reign 2: Chapter 21 “For Baltimore, a second Pa-RAY-ed”

This is Chapter 21 and final of "Purple Reign 2: Faith, Family & Football – A Baltimore Love Story." Nestor Aparicio has released the 2013 book here over recent weeks to prepare #RavensFlock for NFL season. This is the biggest parade in the history of Baltimore.

Maryland Crab Cake (and Brewery) Tour Day 1: Conrad’s Seafood Market in Towson and Red Brick Station in White Marsh

The first day of the Maryland Crab Cake Tour presented by The Maryland Lottery, Goodwill, Window Nation and the Restaurant Association of Maryland was a busy local Towson and White Marsh day. Dr. Steve Elliott from Elliott Chiropractic and Gregg Landry of Towson Transfer have been friends with Nestor for three decades and shared the local business and community love to kick off 31 crab cakes and 31 breweries in 31 days to celebrate 31 years on Baltimore airwaves and to promote local business and Restaurant Week all over the state from September 16th through 25th.

Purple Reign 1: Chapter 16 “Everyone Loves a Parade

I hate parades. I don’t watch them on television. I don’t attend them. I don’t even understand the point of them. Prior to Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2001, I had been to one parade in my life, and I didn’t like it.

Purple Reign 1: Chapter 15 “Festivus Maximus”

The news reports came fast and furious on the Monday before the Super Bowl. Just a day into the biggest week of my life, and the reporters couldn’t wait to track me down with the latest news. One of the Ravens’ team buses, leaving a downtown pep rally for BWI Airport and a charter flight to Tampa, had been involved in an accident, hitting a police cruiser.

Purple Reign 1: Chapter 14 “Painting The Black Hole Purple”

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.

Purple Reign 1: Chapter 13 “Anthony Who? – The Music City Mugging”

“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.

Purple Reign 1: Chapter 12 “A Festivus For the Rest of us”

The loss of John Steadman. The epic appearance at The Barn with Trent Dilfer. And the win over the Denver Broncos that took the upstart Baltimore Ravens to Nashville seeking revenge.

Purple Reign 1: Chapter 11 “Nevermore (To Lose) – The Miracle Begins”

“Next time we play the Tennessee Titans, we’ll kick their ass.” Sam Adams at The Barn in Oct. 2000 to @NestorAparicio during Ravens Super Bowl XXXV run. And then January happened! Remember the Titans? We do... #RavensFlock

Purple Reign 1: Chapter 10 “Moving To The Dark Side”

Two things were pretty obvious to everyone who watched the 2000 Baltimore Ravens during the first half of the season. When they passed the ball, they made mistakes and were ineffective. But each time they tried to run the football with any consistency, they succeeded.

Purple Reign 1: Chapter 9 “‘O’ as in Offensive – The Dust Bowl Comes East”

The Ravens came to Miami on Sept. 17, 2000, for the first time in their five-year existence and the fans from Baltimore were out in force. It was the first time a Baltimore football franchise had played in South Florida since Dan Marino’s rookie season. A lot had changed from that day in 1983.
