It is truly ironic that my first blog on WNST.net begins with an Orioles reference. I had a good friend in college who came up with this theory on dating and relationships. He told me that relationships are like a rubberband: it is always the person that you want, who keeps their distance, that you feel the greatest pull to. I have kept my distance from the Orioles, but those passionate feelings always come up when I hear the Yankees are in town — and that the O’s are hanging in and winning. Then the old warm fuzzies come up that something could maybe happen again. SNAP OUT OF IT, right?!
If you don’t know me, I have been a listener and utility player, so to speak, for WNST for the last ten years. This past weekend, I was fortunate to have a front row seat at the AST Dew Tour. Thanks to Fox Sports Radio, WNST had VIP access and a booth in Festival Village. As a Baltimoron, it gave me great pride to see this tour have such an overwhelming success in the Dew Tour’s first Baltimore experience, with 55,000 fans coming through the ticket booth at M&T Bank to see some pretty spectacular athletes. The tour is schedule to include Baltimore for 2008 and 2009 and I think it will only get bigger.
We had a really nice contest going on at the Dew Tour booth – thanks again to Fox Sports Radio. I want to congratulate Marcel Jackson for winning a trip to the final leg of the AST Dew Tour in Orlando this October.
