Top 10 Baseball Distactions

Posted on 17 February 2014 by Glenn Clark

Honorable Mention: Boxing-Angelo Santana vs. Hank Lundy (Friday 10:45pm from Cleveland live on Showtime); Golf: WGC Accenture Match Play Championship (Wednesday 12pm Thursday & Friday 2pm live on Golf Channel Saturday & Sunday 12pm live on Golf Channel 2pm live on CBS), Honda LPGA Thailand (Thursday & Friday 9am Saturday 2pm Sunday 1:30pm from Chonburi, Thailand on Golf Channel); Tennis: ATP Tour Delray Beach Open (Tuesday-Thursday 12:30pm Friday 6:30pm Saturday 8:30pm from Delray Beach, FL live on Tennis Channel); Women’s College Basketball: Florida State @ Maryland (Thursday 8:30pm from Comcast Center live on Comcast SportsNet), Maryland @ Georgia Tech (Sunday 4pm from Atlanta live on ESPN2); MISL: Pennsylvania Roar @ Baltimore Blast (Friday 7:05pm from Baltimore Arena live on YouTube), Syracuse Silver Knights @ Baltimore Blast (Saturday 6:05pm from Baltimore Arena live on YouTube), Baltimore Blast @ Rochester Lancers (Sunday 3pm from Rochester, NY live on YouTube)

10. Baltimore Winter Restaurant Week (Tuesday-Sunday throughout Charm City); Christian Finnegan (Friday & Saturday Magooby’s Joke House); Sebastian Maniscalco (Friday-Sunday DC Improv); 3 Days to Kill” and “Pompeii” out in theaters (Friday)

Christian Finnegan is GREAT. You may remember him as Chad from “The Mad Real World” on Chappelle’s Show…

He’s skinny now. He’s still funny.

9. Kings of Leon/Gary Clark Jr. (Friday 8pm Verizon Center), Justin Timberlake (Monday 8pm Verizon Center); Lady Antebellum (Friday 7pm Patriot Center); The Bridge (Saturday 8pm Baltimore Soundstage); Joe Nichols (Friday 9pm Fillmore Silver Spring), Young The Giant (Sunday 8pm Fillmore Silver Spring); Black Joe Lewis (Tuesday 7pm 9:30 Club), G. Love & Special Sauce (Thursday 7pm 9:30 Club); Bob Weir & Ratdog (Tuesday 6:30pm Lincoln Theatre); Josh Turner (Friday 8pm Strathmore); Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons (Saturday 8pm France-Merrick Performing Arts Center); Tim Reynolds and TR3 (Saturday 8:30pm The Hamilton); Lake Street Dive “Bad Self Portraits” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

Every time you forget how freaking great KOL are they do something to quickly remind you.

You could never forget how freaking great GCJ is. NEVER.

I dare you to name five things better than Justin Timberlake’s Pusher Love Girl.

Cris Jacobs is a great Baltimorean.

Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 13 January 2014 by Glenn Clark

Honorable Mention: Women’s College Basketball-Syracuse @ Maryland (Thursday 8:30pm from Comcast Center live on Comcast SportsNet), Georgia Tech @ Maryland (Sunday 2pm Comcast Center); Boxing: Jean Pascal vs. Lucian Bute (Saturday 10:15pm from Montreal live on HBO), Ivan Redkach vs. Tony Luis (Friday 10pm from Memphis live on Showtime); MISL: St. Louis Ambush @ Baltimore Blast (Friday 7:35pm from Baltimore Arena live on YouTube), Baltimore Blast @ Syracuse Silver Stars (Sunday 1pm from Syracuse, NY live on YouTube)

10. Paul Mooney (Saturday 7:30pm Howard Theatre)l Iliza Shlesinger (Thursday-Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory); Doug Stanhope (Thursday 8pm Magooby’s Joke House); Todd Glass (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); Baltimore County Restaurant Week (Tuesday-Sunday throughout Baltimore County); Enough Said“, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler“, “Riddick” and “Carrie” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit“, “The Nut Joband “Ride Along” out in theaters (Friday)

Iliza Schlesinger is both humorous and not safe for work.

I have no interest in seeing Jack Ryan, but I could use some more Keira Knightley in my life.

9. Jay-Z (Thursday 8pm Verizon Center); Stone Sour/Pop Evil (Friday 8pm Rams Head Live); Rusted Root (Monday 7:30pm Rams Head on Stage); Big Daddy Kane (Friday 9pm Howard Theatre); Charles Bradley (Thursday 7pm 9:30 Club), Big Head Todd and The Monsters (Saturday 7pm 9:30 Club); Gipsy Kings (Monday 7:30pm Birchmere); Dangermuffin (Friday 8pm Gypsy Sally’s); Bruce Springsteen “High Hopes”Switchfoot “Fading West” and Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings “Give The People What They Want” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

I’ve seen Jay-Z a few times, probably won’t make down to DC Thursday night. But if he ever toured with The Roots there would not be a price I wouldn’t pay.

Charles Bradley > Charles Barkley > Matt Barkley > My elementary school friend Matt Besche. Actually, strike that. Matt Besche is WAY better than Matt Barkley.

Drew Forrester said the new Springsteen record isn’t a home run. Fair enough. I really like this tune though.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings are example number 6,789,403 why Brooklyn is now the capital of the music world.

Posted on 03 December 2013 by Glenn Clark

Honorable Mention: Women’s College Basketball-Big Ten/ACC Challenge: Ohio State @ Maryland (Wednesday 7pm Comcast Center), Siena @ Maryland (Monday 7pm Comcast Center); NBA: Milwaukee Bucks @ Washington Wizards (Friday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet), Denver Nuggets @ Washington Wizards (Monday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet/NBA TV); Boxing: Zab Judah vs. Paulie Malignaggi (Saturday 8pm from Brooklyn live on Showtime); Auto Racing: NASCAR Awards Banquet (Friday 9pm from Las Vegas live on Fox Sports 2)

I don’t care what face you’re making, it doesn’t change how much I secretly love TSO.

I don’t know if I’ll make it to Soundstage Sunday night, but you should sing along with this tune for me.

I believe by law Carbon Leaf is not allowed to go more than a month without playing around here.

I’ll be the Muse record doesn’t suck.

9. Jeff Dunham (Thursday 7pm Patriot Center); Donnell Rawlings (Thursday-Saturday Magooby’s Joke House); The Wolverine” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); Irving Berlin’s White Christmas (Tuesday-Sunday France-Merrick Performing Arts Center at The Hippodrome); Parade of Lighted Boats (Saturday 6pm Fells Point/Inner Harbor); “A Monumental Occasion” (Thursday 5pm Mount Vernon Place)

I don’t really have a lot to say about any of this. Sorry. I didn’t really have time to study if we’re being fair.

Instead, courtesy of The Robb Report, for Christmas this year I’d like you to buy me a backyard stadium for $30 million. For reals.

I would also settle for this $83 million sky yacht.

10. Avenged Sevenfold/Deftones (Tuesday 7:30pm Baltimore Arena); Zac Brown Band (Sunday 6:30pm Jiffy Lube Live); The Wallflowers (Friday 8pm Wolf Trap); Motion City Soundtrack (Wednesday 7pm Rams Head Live); Sick Puppies (Saturday 8pm Baltimore Soundstage); Eddie Money (Thursday 8pm Rams Head on Stage); Lee Brice (Friday 8pm Fillmore Silver Spring), Atlas Genius (Sunday 8pm Fillmore Silver Spring); Mint Condition (Sunday & Monday 8pm Howard Theatre); AFI (Tuesday 6pm 9:30 Club), Soul Asylum/Fountains of Wayne (Wednesday 7pm 9:30 Club), Ra Ra Riot (Friday 8pm 9:30 Club), They Might Be Giants (Saturday 8pm 9:30 Club); Buddy Guy (Tuesday 7:30pm Birchmere), The Gourds (Friday 7:30pm Birchmere); NEEDTOBREATHE (Wednesday 6:30pm U Street Music Hall); Doobie Brothers (Saturday 8:30pm Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric); Hanni El Khatib (Sunday 8pm Rock N Roll Hotel); Tim Reynolds (Monday 7:30pm The Hamilton); Janelle Monae (Monday 7pm Lincoln Theatre); Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington “High Rise”, Cage The Elephant “Melophobia”, Alter Bridge “Fortress”, Korn “Paradigm Shift” and Panic! at the Disco “Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

If someone wants to offer me a late invite to see ZBB Sunday night, the answer will not be “no”.

Oh man, I totally feel like Forrester should have asked me to go see Ra Ra Riot Friday night by now. I get stoked.

I assume that like me, the rest of you put this Doobie Brothers video on at least once a month while sipping a ginger ale on a coach in your tank top and boxers. Right?

Chester Bennington is not Scott Weiland. I want this thing to be okay, but we all know it isn’t.

9. United States Sailboat Show (Thursday-Sunday Annapolis City Dock); The Gathering: Food Truck Rally (Friday 5pm Baltimore Museum of Industry); Maryland Renaissance Festival (Saturday & Sunday RennFest Fairgrounds); Robert Kelly (Friday & Saturday Magooby’s Joke House); Captain Phillips” and “Machete Kills” out in theaters (Friday); The Hangover Part III“, “After Earth” and “The Purge” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday)

Sofia Vergara. Boob guns. Danny Trejo. America.

Also, I have no doubt that Captain Phillips is amazing. But there is no way it is greater than this Tom Hanks classic, or as we all know it-the greatest motion picture of all time. (Minor NSFW language.)

By the way, Brian Baldinger was great in “Catch Me If You Can”.

Posted on 20 July 2013 by WNST Staff

CONCACAF GOLD CUP QUARTERFINALS IN BALTIMORE SOLD OUT

Record crowd expected for doubleheader featuring USA-El Salvador and Costa Rica-Honduras

MIAMI (Friday, July 19, 2013) – The Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) announced today that the 2013 Gold Cup Quarterfinals featuring USA vs. El Salvador and Costa Rica vs. Honduras on Sunday, July 21, will be played before a sold out crowd of more than 71,000 fans at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

“The support of fans in every Gold Cup venue has been incredible,” said CONCACAF President, Jeffrey Webb.  “I am extremely happy with the news from Baltimore that Sunday’s Quarterfinal doubleheader at M&T Bank Stadium is sold out.  It will be a tremendous day for soccer, CONCACAF, the Gold Cup and the city of Baltimore.

“Once again, people will be united through our great sport.”

The Baltimore doubleheader will be the third largest CONCACAF Gold Cup Quarterfinal attendance in the tournament’s history. M&T Bank Stadium joins Cowboys Stadium (85,000 on July 19, 2009 at Arlington, Texas) and New Meadowlands Stadium (78,807 on June 28, 2011 at East Rutherford, New Jersey.

“It’s incredible to see the sustained excitement that international soccer has generated in Baltimore,” stated Roy Sommerhof, the Ravens’ vice president of stadium operations. “Fans in this region are tremendously passionate, and we’re delighted to feature a world class competition like the Gold Cup at M&T Bank Stadium.”

Kickoff for USA-El Salvador is set for 4 p.m. ET live on FOX and Univision, followed by Costa Rica-Honduras at 7 p.m. ET, live on FOX Soccer Channel and Univision. The winners of Sunday’s matches advance to the semifinals at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Wednesday, July 24. The 2013 Gold Cup final, which will crown the best of the confederation, as well as secure a play-in spot to the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, will be played Sunday, July 28 at Chicago’s Soldier Field.

No Brian Wilson for the Beach Boys this summer. What a summer it was last year…

I still enjoy fun. Go ahead, judge away.

Wait. Lacey isn’t the singer from Flyleaf anymore? Just quit. Her voice was THE BEST.

I enjoyed rootsy Robert Randolph, but I have quite the fondness for rock and roll Robert Randolph. Happy that one is back.

9. Artscape (Friday-Sunday Mount Royal); “The Gathering” (Friday 5pm Du Burns Arena); Turbo (Wednesday) and Red 2 (Friday) out in theaters

If Robert McClintock has a table at Artscape again, there isn’t a price I wouldn’t pay for this particular piece…

The Used/Reel Big Fish (Wednesday 11am Merriweather Post Pavilion), Belle and Sebastian (Friday 6:30pm Merriweather Post Pavilion), Phish (Saturday & Sunday 5:30pm Merriweather Post Pavilion), Barenaked Ladies/Ben Folds Five/Guster (Monday 5:30pm Merriweather Post Pavilion); Train/Michael Franti & Spearhead (Friday 7pm Jiffy Lube Live), Lynyrd Skynyrd/Bad Company (Sunday 7pm Jiffy Lube Live); Los Lobos/Los Lonely Boys (Tuesday 8pm Wolf Trap), She & Him (Thursday 8pm Wolf Trap), Boz Scaggs/Michael McDonald (Monday 8pm Wolf Trap); Sister Hazel (Thursday 8pm Rams Head on Stage); The Specials (Friday 8pm Fillmore Silver Spring); Chris Isaak (Monday 7:30pm Birchmere); Paul McCartney (Friday 8pm Nationals Park)

Here’s Ben Folds playing “Army”. I enjoy this.

I’ve noticed a few more “dispensaries” popping up around town. In what I’m sure is an unrelated story, Phish is coming!

I have kickball Thursday night. But I’d give anything to be able to skip and go see Sister Hazel instead…

The bad news for you if you’re going to see Macca Friday night in DC is that I don’t THINK The Boss will be there with him…

9. Keenen Ivory Wayans (Thursday-Sunday Baltimore Comedy Factory); John Witherspoon (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); The Gathering: Food Truck Rally (Friday 5pm Keswick Castle); Caribbean Carnival Festival (Saturday & Sunday Lake Clifton Park); Annapolis Irish Festival (Friday & Saturday Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds); Spring Breakers” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); Grown Ups 2” and “Pacific Rim” out in theaters (Friday)

Is there any chance that KIW could put together a complete In Living Color reunion this weekend?

The release of “Spring Breakers” probably means this is my last chance to post this picture…

Shinedown is that band you’ve always liked but never fully admitted to it…

I could listen to Wale’s first full record on repeat for like a week straight.

Imagine Dragons not only does one of your favorite songs but also MY favorite song from Madden 13…

I will sign up for ANY amount of more Robert Randolph.

9. Joel McHale (Sunday 7:30pm Towson Center); Eddie Griffin (Friday & Saturday Magooby’s Joke House); “Argo” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); “Snitch” out in theaters (Friday); Baltimore Winter Wine Celebration (Friday-Monday); “The Gathering” (Saturday 3pm The Castle at Keswick Hampden)

Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 18 December 2012 by Glenn Clark

Honorable Mention: Boxing-Tomasz Adamek vs. Steve Cunningham (Saturday 4pm from Bethlehem, PA live on NBC); MISL Soccer: Baltimore Blast @ Chicago Soul (Friday 8:30pm from Hoffman Estates, IL live on MISLtv.com), Baltimore Blast @ Milwaukee Wave (Saturday 7pm from Milwaukee live on MISLtv.com)

10. Dave Matthews Band/Lumineers (Tuesday 7:30pm 1st Mariner Arena); The Killers (Tuesday 7:30pm Patriot Center); Mike Ruocco (Sunday 7pm Recher Theatre); Grace Potter (Tuesday 7pm Baltimore Soundstage); Carbon Leaf (Tuesday & Wednesday 8pm Rams Head on Stage), Los Lobos (Thursday 6:30pm & 9:30pm Rams Head on Stage); Grouplove (Tuesday & Wednesday 7pm 9:30 Club), Virginia Coalition (Saturday 8pm 9:30 Club); Chatham County Line (Wednesday 7:30pm Birchmere)

Still can’t believe Dave Matthews is playing Charm City. First time since 1994. Going to be an exceptional evening.

And they brought Lumineers? Outstanding.

I remember the summer after “Hot Fuss” was released I saw The Killers at Merriweather Post Pavilion. The place was a mobscene. It was a fine damn night. This is one of the greatest rock and roll songs of the 21st century…

I beat Andrew Poliakoff from VACO in “Everybody Beats Glenn”, but I lost a bet to him on the Ravens game and had to Tweet out “HTTR” which was the most painful thing EVER.

9. Paul Mooney (Thursday 8pm Howard Theatre); This is 40” & “Jack Reacher” out in theaters (Friday); Glenn Clark’s annual holiday party (Friday “In The Corn”)

Once again I’ve partnered with ABC Rental Rosedale for my own Christmas Party. I DEFINITELY picked up one of these…

But I could definitely still use a few of these before the party…

And I REALLY want to serve THESE…
