As the the torrid 2019 Baltimore Ravens were headed into the playoffs, Nestor reached to legendary defensive tackle Tony Siragusa to inquire about how he'd try to wrap up the fleet Lamar Jackson. As usual, part comedy and part science ensued with The Goose.
When David Modell died in early 2017, Nestor reached to many of the Super Bowl XXXV heroes and early Ravens players to discuss the Modell family and coming to Baltimore to built a legacy. Tony Siragusa discussed a magical time in sports history in our city and left poignant words behind. We mourn his death here at WNST Baltimore Positive.
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.
It has been said that you need to crawl before you can walk. For the 2000 Baltimore Ravens, much of that crawling was done during the end of the 1999 season. Before Shannon Sharpe came to play. While Trent Dilfer was still sitting on the bench in Tampa Bay, waiting for redemption. While Jamal Lewis and Travis Taylor were still attending college classes and hoping to become first-round draft picks in the NFL.
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.

As the tour unfolds, Don Mohler wants to know what's going on with masks and mandates and public obedience of laws and orders and common sense in The Free State. This week's version of The Recon is a lot of crab cake and some real tales of wi-fi from the road.
This picture was taken in 1989 backstage at Hammerjacks. Locally born and bred drummer Steve Gorman (on right in Orioles orinthologically correct hat) will take over the story from there in the aftermath of his best-selling book on the history of the notoriously infamous Black Crowes and life with The Brothers Robinson.
Legendary Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy joins Nestor to tell the parquet magic story of his hometown, Larry Bird, Bill Walton and building the NBA in Boston Celtics green in his new book: Wish It Lasted Forever
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.
Ever since he saw them at the Baltimore Civic Center in February 1980, former music critic Nestor Aparicio has been chasing Styx around the country. JY has been a recurring character on his radio show for three decades. This one was a "mirror, mirror on the wall" segment...
After 16 years with the Baltimore Ravens, punter Sam Koch retired from the NFL this week. Luke Jones and Nestor sat down for their final "Ravens Live Show" ever with No. 4 and talked about his life in the land of Big Red.
The first time Nestor Aparicio did a sports radio show was on December 13, 1991.

This one is personal...
It's been a while since Caps historian Ed Frankovic dropped by to talk hockey and playoffs with Nestor. As the Islanders play into June, this one got spicy three years after a Stanley Cup parade in D.C. and the Leonsis lies about bringing the chalice to Baltimore.
