Drew Forrester and I are big Ra Ra Riot fans. For good reason.

I’ll be at ZBB Saturday night. I hope he does this again.

The smartest thing the Stones have EVER done is (apparently) hire Gary Clark Jr. to join the band. He’s the best. Ever.

I haven’t begged for FATT tickets yet, but I will. They’re the other best. Ever.

9. Daniel Tosh (Friday 7pm & 9:30pm Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric); Seth Meyers (Friday 8pm Warner Theatre); Carlos Mencia (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); Monsters University” and “World War Z” out in theaters (Friday); Baltimore Dragon Boat Challenge (Saturday 8am Tide Point Marina)

After hanging out with Jay Pharoah last week, I sorta feel like part of the SNL family. Oh wait, did you not hear? I hung out with Jay Pharoah last week…

And Seth Meyers is hilarious. Hilarious.

Jacoby Jones finishes in third place on DWTS

Posted on 21 May 2013 by WNST Staff

Baltimore Ravens WR/KR Jacoby performed his final dance on Season 16 of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars” Tuesday night in Los Angeles. He scored a perfect 30 out of 30 for his salsa, but it wasn’t enough to bring home the Mirrorball Trophy.

Jones and partner Karina Smirnoff finished in third place despite an exceptional group of final dances in Week 10.

Jones performed a “Jive” in finale week…

He performed as part of a “Cha-Cha-Cha” relay…

And Jones also performed a “Super-sized freestyle” with elements of the “Seven Nation Army” chant included…

Country singer Kellie Pickler won the season, Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman finished in second place. Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman was eliminated before Jones, finishing in 4th place.

Jones is expected to return to Charm City for Ravens Organized Team Activities (OTA’s) Thursday.

Jacoby Jones gets big scores, advances to finals of DWTS

Posted on 14 May 2013 by WNST Staff

After a weekend hospital scare for partner Karina Smirnoff, Baltimore Ravens WR/KR Jacoby Jones put together his best overall week of the season on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars”. First up was the Argentine Tango, which earned the Super Bowl XLVII hero his first ever perfect score of 30/30.

Later in the show ABC aired interview pieces with many people from Jones’ life, including Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, WR Torrey Smith and former Ravens LB Ray Lewis. He then performed the Lindy Hop, bringing in a score of 29/30 from the judges.

On Tuesday night’s show Jones found out he had advanced to next week’s finals as soap star Ingo Rademacher was eliminated. Also advancing to the finals are Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman, county singer Kellie Pickler and Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman.

Jacoby Jones advances through Week 8 of DWTS

Posted on 08 May 2013 by WNST Staff

Baltimore Ravens WR/KR Jacoby Jones and partner Karina Smirnoff avoided elimination again Tuesday night during Week 8 of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars.” The duo had received a 27/30 for their performance of the Viennese Waltz on Monday night’s show…

Later on Monday night’s show, the pair was joined by fellow pro dancer Cheryl Burke for a paso doble that received a score of 25/30 from the judges (we’re assuming it wasn’t scored higher because Jones was wearing Pittsburgh Steelers colors while making the moves)…

Joining Jacoby (and his ever increasingly popular mother) in the audience Monday night in Los Angeles was Leigh Anne Tuohy, adoptive mother of Ravens OT Michael Oher. (Picture courtesy of Baltimore Media Blog.)

Jacoby Jones survives after strong DWTS Week 7 Salsa

Posted on 30 April 2013 by WNST Staff

Jacoby Jones and partner Karina Smirnoff were in jeopardy of being eliminated but ultimately proved to be safe on Week 7 of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars.” The Baltimore Ravens WR/KR received high marks for his performance of the salsa…

Jacoby also participated in a “dance-off” against 16-year-old Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman…

It’s probably fair to suggest at this point that Jacoby’s mother (Emily London-Jones) is the true breakout star of the show.
