Hope you’ll join me for US/Ghana Monday night at Buffalo Wild Wings Bel Air!

Posted on 15 June 2014 by Glenn Clark

I swear to everything holy I mean this…I don’t know if I remember a better first four days to start a World Cup in my life.

There was Mario Balotelli’s splendor in Italy’s win over England, Switzerland’s stunning extra time goal to top Ecuador, The Netherlands’ improbable blowout win over defending champion Spain, Lionel Messi’s “Messi-ac” goal vs. Bosnia, Costa Rica’s amazing upset of Uruguay and even Brazil’s floptastic Cup-opening comeback win over Croatia.

It’s been an excellent four days of football to start things in Brazil.

Team USA finally gets into the action Monday night with the first Cup match of the Jurgen Klinsmann/post-Landon Donovan era. The German-born coach has practically declared the Yanks’ first group stage match against Ghana as “must win” due to the difficulty that lies ahead with Portugal and his home country in the next two group stage matches.

Just how important is this first match? Here’s how Klinsmann described it to ESPN.com before departing for South America.

We basically start with a World Cup final against Ghana. We need badly these three points. If we get three points against Ghana, I think then that the confidence will rise, the guys will be pumped up, and they will be ready for Portugal and give them a real fight.

So…big game, huh?

As a patriot myself, I’m taking my responsibility to support my country quite seriously. It’s with that in mind that myself and my pal Carl Delmont (our buddy from Freedmont Mortgage-the official sponsor of our World Cup coverage here at WNST.net) will be heading up to Harford County Monday night for the match.

We’ll be at Buffalo Wild Wings in Bel Air-one of our favorite area hangouts. I’ll be arriving between 5 and 6 to get ready for the match. If you’re looking for me, I’ll be the guy draped in an American flag and with Red, White and Blue hair.

My hair colors don’t run, folks.

If you’re a patriot yourself, you need to be there. If you believe, if you believe that, if you believe that we, if you believe that we will, if you believe that we will win, if you believe that we will win, if you believe that we will win-you need to be there.

Also, if you think I won’t be echoing said chant TIME AND TIME AGAIN tomorrow night, you’re wrong.

There are going to be great specials during tomorrow night’s match. Tall Buds are just $3.65 and Natty Bohs are only $2.75. I mean, what’s more American than cheap beer?

I’ll probably put down roughly five or six hundred boneless Asian Zing wings while I’m there. This is your reminder to purchase some of them for me. Thanks in advance. I’ll also grab a bunch of other giveaways to bring with me for anyone who shows me their own levels of patriotism during the course of the match.

Monday night. 6pm. Buffalo Wild Wings Bel Air (5 Bel Air South Parkway in the Festival at Bel Air). Tell Rob Thorpe the Yankees suck when you see him there. Duke too.

Cheap beer. Wings. Team USA. It’s like Lee Greenwood riding a bald eagle in a 4th of July parade.

See you at BWW.

Before we started yelling about Joe Flacco it was already the best day ever

Before we started yelling about Joe Flacco it was already the best day ever

Posted on 26 November 2013 by Glenn Clark

You guys never cease to amaze me. Never.

We had a “spirited” afternoon on “The Reality Check” today, discussing Joe Flacco’s comments regarding The Wildcat offense and plays where he lines up at wide receiver.

But well before that, I had the pleasure of visiting SARC in Bel Air to drop off all of the canned goods you guys so kindly donated to the great charity. There were roughly 2,500 canned goods total, enough to essentially fill the conference room at SARC. Pictured below are members of the staff at SARC, our friend Rick Donovan from Enoch Office Equipment (who so kindly donated his time today to help us take the cans to Harford County) and only a SMALL part of the donation you all made.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your generosity. I am always so humbled by all of you who care so much not only about local sports but about our local community. As Drew Forrester and I often say, we are not WNST-we’re just the goofs with the microphones in front of us. All of you make up WNST and we couldn’t be more grateful that you all care so much about making this happen every year.

Thanks to the entire WNST staff. Drew, Luke Jones, Nestor Aparicio, Drew Forrester, Ryan Chell, Thyrl Nelson, Peter DiLutis, Paul Kopelke, Ashley Bishoff, Brett Dickinson, Barry Kamen, Jeff Kryglik and our many interns for helping to get the word out, collect, organize, lift and transport cans. Thanks to our wonderful partners Enoch Office Equipment, Navy football, David’s 1st & 10, Greenmount Station and Buffalo Wild Wings (Owings Mills, White Marsh and Bel Air) for partnering with us or allowing us to collect cans at their establishments.

A major thank you also goes out to UFC light heavyweight champ Jon “Bones” Jones for donating his time to help us collect cans, as well as Baltimore Ravens OT Eugene Monroe and WR Marlon Brown. Also to 24×7 Booking, The Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric, the Baltimore Arena and many more for providing us incentives to help collect cans.

We’re not done. After Thanksgiving, Drew & I will announce plans for our annual coat drive-where we’ll take care of another great area charity-The Helping Up Mission downtown.

As I close, I received this letter tonight from the Executive Director of SARC. It was equally humbling. I cannot tell you how much each and every one of you mean to us. Thank you again.

Dear WNST Listeners:

We here at SARC are overwhelmed with gratitude due to your generosity. The incredible amount of items you donated to the food pantry through the WNST Radio Station food drive this fall is just amazing! Because of you, many SARC clients and their families will be able to celebrate the holidays in a safe and loving place, no longer scared of the violence that has touched their lives.

SARC is Harford County’s resource that brings hope to victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse and stalking. Your willingness to help members of the community weather the crises in their lives makes all the difference for these families. Because of caring donors such as you, SARC has been able to provide 107 children, just this year, with a place to live and feel safe. Your donation will allow the staff and volunteers here at SARC to continue providing support to other families as well.

Moving forward, we would love to keep you involved with SARC’s mission to create a society free from abuse and fear by inviting you to participate in the 5th Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event scheduled for April, 2014. WNST listeners can register to walk a mile in high heeled shoes through the streets of downtown Bel Air, or support a walker who is stepping up to address the issue of sexual assault. When good people take a public stand against violence, they give their peers permission to do the same. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes ® raises money for SARC, supporting violence prevention initiatives and services to clients.

Allow us to keep you in the loop with Facebook and Linkedin postings (search SARCharfordcounty.) You can visit SARC’s website, www.sarc-maryland.org, e-mail us or call us at 410-836-8431 for more information.

Again, THANK YOU! From all of us here at SARC, have a happy, healthy and safe holiday season.

Warm Regards,

Luisa Caiazzo-Nutter
Executive Director
