The 22nd day of the Maryland Crab Cake Tour presented by The Maryland Lottery, Goodwill, Window Nation and the Restaurant Association of Maryland was spent in Eldersburg with an incredible local journey with old friends. Mike McKelvin and Dante Liberatore own a restaurant and brewing company and shared their Carroll County life with Nestor. And John Maroon stopped by for three decades of sports tales about Cal Ripken Jr. and walking the Great Wall of China and the streets of Beijing together. Lots of delicious 1823 beer here and a toast to the late, great Vince Bagli and Chris Thomas.
At the First Annual Nasty Nice Guy Awards in 1997 in Glen Burnie, two legends talked boxing, horse racing and kindness. The late great Clem Florio and Vince Bagli educate Nestor on Baltimore sports history. And Earnest Byner joins them.
Back in 1992 when Nestor Aparicio began doing his own radio show on WITH-AM 1230 and Baltimore didn't have an NFL team, he reached to then-Houston Oilers public relations man Chip Namias for a helping hand with the Love Ya Blue blood running through his young veins after leaving The Baltimore Sun. And here we are 30 years later telling the tales.
