One thing for sure: Nestor doesn’t have a “Koch Problem”

November 02, 2009 | Drew Forrester

Holy beatdown, Batman. 

Who got their rear-end handed to them more — Denise Koch?  Or the Broncos on Sunday?


Looking more and more like “the little train that could”, Nasty smashed Denise Koch in The Sun’s Celebrity Smackdown competition, sending her back to TV Hill with a 78%-22% whuppin’.

Don’t look now, but that guy from the station that no one listens to is suddenly in The Elite Eight.  

I laughed so hard this week as I saw the results on a daily basis that I needed some of Ethan’s diapers.  

Do you smell that?  I do.  Smells A LOT like George Mason in the ’06 NCAA Tournament, doesn’t it?  Yep, sure does.

Next up is the Elite Eight match-up against an even more unlikely opponent — Marin Alsop, the woman who does something with the Baltimore Symphony.  Oh, she runs the Symphony, you say?  OK.  I believe you. 

Alsop just pounded Brooks Robinson in their Sweet 16 battle.  I know, I know, I’m with you:  there’s no way someone from the Symphony is a bigger celebrity in Baltimore than Brooks Freakin’ Robinson.  I can’t explain the voting in this thing.  She won, that’s all I know.

Aparicio, meanwhile, has handled as many women in the last two weeks (2) as Oakland Raiders coach Tom Cable. Remember, figure skater Kimmie Meissner was hammered by Nestor in round #2, setting the stage for the Denise Koch dismissal in the Sweet 16.  

If Aparicio happens to slice and dice his way through the entire field to win “Baltimore’s Biggest Celebrity”, we’re going to put him up against Barack Obama in a contest for “America’s Greatest Man”.  

After that, if he gets past Obama – as expected – we might just see if Nelson Mandela wants to go toe-to-toe with Aparicio for the title of “World Peace Leader”.  

I hope Denise Koch doesn’t take this too personally.

After all, Aparicio can be a tough opponent.

Just ask the baseball team in town.
