The Maryland Crab Cake Tour has taken the backroads to lovely places all over The Free State. The stop on the Chester River with an old pal and chef gave us some education on backfin and jumbo lump techniques on the Shore.
When Nestor's childhood pal and lifer restaurateur Brian Eder bought a new place at the corner of Highland and Foster, we knew this view would kick off the local portion of the Maryland Crab Cake Tour.
It got a little emotional as Nestor told some Scunny tales from Canton and some Nacho Mama's memories while later admitting he really needed a Natty Boh to wash it down. We'll save that one for Mama's On The Half Shell in Canton later on the Maryland Crab Cake Tour.
Our Chief Digital Officer Mike Rosenfeld of Web Connection was a little sore and tired getting to the segment because he was playing "pickleball." After three people mentioned the same game on the same day, Nestor thought it was time to investigate this middle-age crisis in America.
When the legendary Baltimore Orioles outfielder died in 2019, it was hard to find this clip but it made us smile when we did. And this 1992 picture is only one he could find from when the Hall of Famer umpired the "Broadcast vs. Print Media Baseball Game" at Camden Yards.
While watching the Orioles play the Mets in Queens and hearing Cakes on the MASN call, Nestor reached to venerable New York Daily News baseball insider Bill Madden to tell some tales from the 1969 crypt. Oh, and there was the time at Cross Keys on the Yankees beat when he witnessed the Billy Martin-Ed Whitson bar brawl.
He arrived with Kordell Stewart, refused to sign autographs and had an awesome mink coat. But as you will hear, Prime sat center stage and answered every question from every Ravens fan when he was no longer in the "prime" of his legendary career.
