Glenn’s Drew’s Morning Dish: We’re off to a great start. Keep it up.

Posted on 15 August 2014 by Glenn Clark

Glenn’s Drew’s Morning Dish is brought to you by Koons Baltimore Ford BECAUSE I SAY IT IS.

We had an awesome Thursday on “The D&L Window Tinting Morning Reaction” with our Adam Jones Appreciation Day events. The highlight of Thursday was (unquestionably) this moment, when Justin from Owings Mills’ two year old Desmond came in studio at 1550 Hart Rd. to pie me after his parents donated $50 to the ALS Association as part of our modified #IceBucketChallenge.

It was awesome all around. Desmond is a huge Adam Jones fan-while I’m a huge fan of both doing good for the community AND pie. We call that a “double win”, or maybe even-this might sound crazy-a “win win” if you might.

But we were just getting started. We want to raise much more money Friday (and throughout the next week) for the Brigance Brigade-in honor of Baltimore’s favorite son O.J. Brigance and his continued fight against ALS.

Our guy Steve from Dundalk has already committed to coming by the studio Friday morning to donate at least $50 in order to pie Morning Show regular Luke Jones. That’s awesome. Our pal Simon Habtemariam is going to stop by and let me pie him because I’m going to make a cash donation myself. That’s awesome as well. Dan from Overlea is in for $50 himself and he doesn’t want to pie anyone. He just wants me to piss off Drew Forrester by replacing “Fridays With The Boss” with “Fridays With The Fab Four”. Done. And awesome for sure.

But I’m willing to get pied again if you’re willing to pony up the dough…and the filling.

If anyone else wants to stop by 1550 Hart Rd. in Towson between 6-10am, I’ll let them hit me with the pie of their choice. (The chocolate meringue Desmond went with Thursday was actually quite tasty.) You have to make a donation of AT LEAST $50 (checks made out to “Brigance Brigade” this time) to plant the confection on my face. It’s the perfect combination of showing off your Orioles support (via the pie), your Ravens support (by donating to the Brigance Brigade) and just doing good for those who need it. It seems to me like it’s even more beneficial than just dumping a cold bucket of water on your head on a summer day.

But wait-there’s more!

You might be familiar with our resident “rock star”, Zack Merrick from the band All Time Low. He’s been a part of our last few coat drives at WNST and as a Baltimore County resident himself, he’s ALWAYS been the guy to step up to the plate and ask me what he can do. There are few people who love our community and want to help more than Zack.

So Zack (who also happens to be a pretty big O’s fan) has offered to get pied as many as TWENTY times in the next week to help raise up to a thousand dollars for the Brigance Brigade.

Whoa.

Here’s the scoop. We’re looking for $500 worth of donations from All Time Low fans who want to deliver a pie to this good-looking face.

So…either one All Time Low fan can donate $500 to pie Zack, two can donate $250, five can donate $100, ten can donate $50 or TWENTY can donate $25. That’s the minimum donation to plant a pie in Zach’s face. We’re going to do the Pie Throw next Friday afternoon, so keep your schedule clear after 3pm to be in Towson for the event (I’m thinking 3:14 because, you know, pie).

Zack is going to match the total donated up to $500. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that means that if YOU ALL commit to donating $500 and he matches it-that’s a $1,000 donation to the Brigance Brigade and their fight against ALS-which is ABSOLUTELY more helpful than ice.

So let’s get to it, Charm City. Make your commitment. Either stop by with your pie on Friday morning to hit me in the face or let us know (via glenn@wnst.net) that you’re in for next Friday afternoon and let us know how much you’ll be donating to slap Zach with a pie.

Life is pretty damn good in Baltimore right now. Let’s keep making it better for everyone.

It’s approaching “last call” for coats, so let’s have a holiday open house!

It’s approaching “last call” for coats, so let’s have a holiday open house!

Posted on 20 December 2013 by Glenn Clark

I can’t thank everyone enough for coming out last night to Buffalo Wild Wings White Marsh with coats to donate for our annual WNST.net holiday coat drive. We have THOUSANDS of coats here at The Zone Superstore Studios, but when it comes to charity-we will have to admit we’re greedy.

We need more and we only have until 10am Monday to collect them.

So here’s my final hurrah. We’ve gathered all of the stuff we have left over from our various giveaways and events in recent weeks (and actually added some new stuff in as well!) and we’re giving you one final chance to trade us winter gear for it to help the great people at Helping Up Mission and Goodwill of Maryland.

There’s a lot of stuff on our swag table. Let me give you a rundown.

Five coats (or jackets/sweaters/hats/pairs of gloves/snow boots/ski pants/etc.) will get you one of the following:
-A “Crush 19″ t-shirt
-A “Free The Birds” t-shirt
-A copy of “100 Things Ravens Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die” by Jason Butt
-An autographed football from Ravens LB Jameel McClain (a couple are also signed by LS Morgan Cox)
-A pair of tickets to see “Badfish: A Tribute to Sublime” at Rams Head Live January 4
-A pair of tickets to see “Masters of Illusion” at The Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric February 11

Ten coats will get you a copy of Gary S. Williams’ book “The Art of Retirement” autographed by Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott.

The first person to bring 25 or more will get a copy of “Jonathan Ogden: Baltimore’s First Raven” autographed by the Hall of Fame former Raven himself!

All giveaways are while supplies last.

And everyone who brings by even ONE coat will be registered to win a pair of tickets to WWE Monday Night Raw January 6th at Baltimore Arena.

And this is the part that will probably be most interesting to more than a few of you. For a second straight year, my buddy Zack Merrick from the band All Time Low is graciously offering to come by and co-host this afternoon from 3-6pm. He’s willing to meet and greet/take pictures with/sign autographs for anyone who brings by at least FIVE winter weather gear items.

Here’s Zack from last season quizzing Ravens TE Dennis Pitta during one of our weekly player shows.

This is what Zack helped us raise a year ago…

So today’s the day. It all goes down this afternoon at The Zone Superstore Studios…1550 Hart Rd. in Towson. If you have any questions, email me glenn@wnst.net or call our office 410-821-9678. You can start coming by IMMEDIATELY and Zack will be here at 3pm.

As with every good Open House, we’ll have some great guests calling in on “The Reality Check”, including Dennis Pitta, Ravens DL Chris Canty, Maryland football coach Randy Edsall, former Raven Mike Flynn and “Nasty” Nestor Aparicio will make his weekly football picks with us.

Happy Holidays

We’re winding down our coat drive, but I’ve got one more offer for donations

We’re winding down our coat drive, but I’ve got one more offer for donations

Posted on 14 December 2012 by Glenn Clark

We had an excellent time Tuesday night at Buffalo Wild Wings in White Marsh for our annual WNST.net coat drive. Thanks to all of you who came out with coats, jackets, hats, gloves, blankets, scarves and more. The end of the night tally was excellent…

Thanks also to those of you have brought coats out to one of our “Thursday Night Live” shows with Dennis Pitta the last couple of weeks, and thanks to those of you who have stopped by The Zone Superstore studios in Towson this week with your coats as well.

We’re coming down to the nitty gritty as far as collecting coats goes this year. We’ll be making our annual donation on behalf of the WNST.net community to Helping Up Mission Tuesday.

But we’ve got one more big to-do left to get you to step up and bring us some coats!

I want to introduce you to my new friend Zack Merrick. He’s the good looking guy sitting between Dennis Pitta and I at McFaul’s IronHorse Tavern last Thursday…

Zack is a Towson High School graduate, big fan of the Baltimore Ravens and Baltimore Orioles and has a neat job touring the world as part of a little band called “All Time Low”. Here the boys are playing “For Baltimore” recently at the MLB Fan Cave in New York…

They look like they’re having fun. They’re also a REALLY big deal. If you’re saying to yourself “I’m not sure I’m familiar with All Time Low”, you might want to ask your kids. They have about a half a million Twitter followers and you couldn’t have sold an internal organ to get a ticket to one of their two recent Charm City shows.

Like I said, big deal.

So with everybody kinda bummed about the Ravens’ recent slide, Zack and I decided it would be a good idea to throw a Purple Friday Pep Rally Friday on “The Reality Check”. He’s going to join me in studio from 3-6pm, he’ll be taking over as GM of my team during “Your Picks Are Nasty”, we’ll be chatting with Ravens TE Ed Dickson and we MIGHT even bring back “The Airing of the Grievances” this week to celebrate Festivus.

But the much more important part is the part where Zack has offered to help to raise coats.

Zack has offered to sign autographs/pose for pictures with anyone who brings in ten or more coats (and other warm gear) to the Zone Superstore Studios Friday afternoon between 3 and 6pm. THIS WOULD MAKE A GREAT HOLIDAY GIFT FOR SOMEONE YOU KNOW-YOU JUST DON’T REALIZE THAT AT THE MOMENT.

It’s as simple as that. You get ten coats. Raid your closet. Raid your kids’ closets. Raid your neighbors’ closets. Raid the thrift store down the street. Wherever they are, get the coats together.

Once you do, e-mail me (glenn@wnst.net) to let me know when you’re coming. THEN, head to 1550 Hart Rd. here in Towson Friday afternoon to meet Zack.

And if for some reason meeting Zack Merrick isn’t really your thing, I have tickets for the Coppin State-Towson game next Wednesday at Towson Center AND I still have a few copies of “The Bourne Legacy” on Blu-Ray as well.

Anything I’m forgetting? Let me know.

See you Friday afternoon. Go Ravens!

-G
