Mike Ashley: Terps need to toughen up, play meaner

Posted on 15 February 2016 by WNST Staff

Mike Ashley of the Terrapin Times joined Nestor to discuss the Terps loss to Wisconsin over the weekend.

While Ashley admits that “the student flash mob was executing better than the Terps” at one point in the first half, he believes that Terrapins fans need to tip their hat to the Badgers in this case..

“I think you have to give Wisconsin a lot of credit,” Ashley said. “That’s a team that’s won seven games in a row, have overcome losing Bo Ryan early in the year as their coach. I think they’ve really adapted.”

“I think it’s more a situation where you have to give Wisconsin credit than talk bad about the Terps at this point.”

As for the rest of the season as we inch closer to March, Ashley does believe that the Terrapins need to toughen up a bit if they’re going to reach all of their goals.

“One thing that I took away was the Diamond Stone incident before the half,” Ashley said. “There was a little bit of badass that this team might need to get to the next level. They have got to play with more of a chip on their shoulder when things get rough with them.”

“Sometimes they have to be able to flip that switch and play a little bit madder, a little bit meaner, and that to me is the missing component to these guys,” Ashley said. “They’ve got Final Four talent but we’ve seen them out-toughed in some key games this year.”

Bob Kravitz: Lots of inconsistency with Manning report

Posted on 15 February 2016 by WNST Staff

Bob Kravitz checked in with Nestor and gave his thoughts on the Peyton Manning story that has come out about his time at the University of Tennessee.

Kravitz had a couple issues with the way the information was released…

“The issue I had with it is that it was a facts of case document, the 74 page document which I’ve read twice now,” Kravitz said. “Which is by definition, a biased one sided document. I mean it’s supposed to be. That’s what she pays a lawyer for.”

“It is a one-sided document that is going to express the very worst in Peyton Manning or whoever happens to be being sued in this particular situation, and there was nothing from the Manning side, “Kravitz said. “There was no document, no facts of case, there was nothing from the judge. That was the issue that I had with it. There was no real effort made to try and balance the story. ”

Bob also is a bit skeptical as to the consistency of Jamie Naughright’s story.

“The story has changed some, and I don’t mean to be victim shaming here,” Kravitz said. “I’ve got two daughters and I understand what that’s all about, but there seems to be a lot of inconsistency and one-sidedness in this particular report.”

How will the Terps home loss to Wisconsin impact the rest of their season as they chase a Big 10 Championship?

Which route will the Ravens take in free agency? How much cap room do they have to potentially make some moves to upgrade the roster? Which of the Ravens own free agents will they prioritize as the offseason begins to heat up?

Spend Leap Day with WNST and Coach Barry Trotz!

Posted on 28 January 2016 by WNST Staff

The Washington Capitals are off to one of the best starts in their storied history, and we at WNST will be joined by head coach Barry Trotz as we Rock the Red at Buffalo Wild Wings Bel Air on Monday, February 29th at 730PM.

There’s something special about February 29th. It only comes around once every four years, and with the Capitals leaping towards the Stanley Cup this season, it’s only fitting that we spend this special evening with Coach Trotz and all you Caps fans out there!

We’ll talk to Coach Trotz about his second year in the district and how this team compares to all of the teams that he’s coached both in Nashville and Washington. Why should we believe that the Caps will finally move past the second round of the NHL playoffs? Coach Trotz will answer all of these questions plus many more! We’ll also have some very special Washington Capitals giveaway items for you to win.

Furthermore, There Goes My Hero Foundation will be on hand swabbing in an effort to add as many people as possible to the bone marrow transplant database. We’ve done some amazing work with them since March of 2014, raising thousands of dollars and swabbing thousands of people in our effort to save lives!

A big thanks to our good friend Carl Delmont and our presenting sponsor Freedmont Mortgage for their continued support of our mission here at WNST. We also appreciate the support of Joe Enoch, Rick Donovan, and the good folks at Enoch Office, as well as everyone involved with Planet Fitness, the official gym of WNST. Also, we’ve now had a several year partnership with our friends at Buffalo Wild Wings Bel Air, and somehow, the food just gets better and better!

We hope that you’ll rock your red and join us as we hang out with Coach Barry Trotz on this very special leap day. The puck drops at 730PM. Come hungry with an appetite for delicious food and a night of Caps fun!

Ted Talk: My chats with Marchibroda – a Baltimore football icon

Posted on 16 January 2016 by Nestor Aparicio

So many memories of Ted Marchibroda. They started with me on Bank Street in Dundalk taking the No. 22 bus to Memorial Stadium to see his Colts teams play in 1975-76-77. Then, watching as our team was gone as he led the K-Gun offense in Buffalo.

Then, of course, I got to know Ted Marchibroda when he was named the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens and had a press conference on February 15, 1996.

Marchibroda called my show that day and the audio is here and in the Buy A Toyota Audio Vault.

He also spent an entire evening with a group of fans at The Barn in May 1997. That chat is also here and will be presented on WNST.net & AM 1570 radio this week.

We join everyone associated with both the Colts and Ravens organizations in wishing Ted Marchibroda an eternity of peace and happiness in football heaven.

Ted Marchibroda passed away on January 16th, 2015, at the age of 84.

Marchibroda coached the Baltimore Colts from 1975 through 1979, the Indianapolis Colts from 1992 through 1995, and was hired to coach the newly relocated Baltimore Ravens in 1996. He coached in Baltimore for three years, and was considered by many Baltimore football fans as the perfect head coach to serve as a bridge as the team transitioned from Indianapolis to Baltimore. Known as an offensive innovator, Marchibroda is a highly respected figure in the game.

My first chat with Ted Marchibroda in February of 1996 before the Ravens had ever played a game in Baltimore – before they even had a name!

Hear us discuss Vinny Testaverde, Art Modell, expectations for the Ravens in year 1, and look ahead to the draft which ultimately produced Ray Lewis and Jon Ogden.

Listen here:

In May of 1997, Ted sat down with me once again after having coached the Ravens to a 4-12 record in their inaugural season in Baltimore.

Listen to Part 1 and Part 2 of their conversation here:

Brandon Stokley: Peyton Manning has three good games left in him

Brandon Stokley: Peyton Manning has three good games left in him

Posted on 12 January 2016 by WNST Staff

Brandon Stokley is one of Peyton Manning’s closest friends, and he joined Nestor to discuss #18 and the Broncos heading into their matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Brandon felt that the time off for Manning as he recovered from his injury may have benefitted him mentally as much as physically…

“He knows what kind of team they have, and he doesn’t have to win the football game anymore,” Stokley said. “That doesn’t have to be his mindset heading into the playoffs. You’ve got the best defense in the NFL. So if you need to throw the ball away or take a sack, that’s fine.”

Although Manning has established himself as one of the best quarterbacks of all time, the question of whether he has three good games left in him persists across the nation. What does Brandon think?

“That’s a very valid question, and I guess we all will see,” Stokley said. “I think he does. I really do. I think he’s going to come out and play great. I know the guy well, and there’s nobody that’s going to go out and fight and claw and compete like him. He’s going to be prepared and he’s going to lay it all on the line. I think he’s going to go out and have a great game and play well. Obviously I think they’ll win, and it’ll make for a great AFC Championship game.”

“It’ll make for a fun ride for him, to see him in possibly his last playoffs ever.”

Bob Kravitz: If Alabama beats Clemson, Nick Saban will go to New York Giants

Posted on 07 January 2016 by WNST Staff

Our Indianapolis pal Bob Kravitz joined us and gave his thoughts on the surprising extension given to Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, calling the Pagano/Grigson relationship “a marriage of convenience.”

Bob also talked about Sean Payton’s reported interest in the Colts job.

“How many opportunities do you get to work with a guy like Andrew Luck? This would have been a very, very attractive job offer, especially if he would have gotten complete control over personnel,” Kravitz said. “And that’s something that I believe he would have wanted.”

Furthermore, Kravitz made a bold prediction when it comes to Nick Saban potentially leaving Alabama.

“I believe that if Nick Saban wins this national title game against Clemson, I believe that Nick Saban will be going to the New York Giants.”

Bring your coats to Adams Jeep and meet Justin Forsett!

Posted on 12 December 2014 by WNST Staff

We’re right in the midst of our annual coat drive, this year benefitting the unbelievable mission of Goodwill Industries. Our next event in which YOU can bring your coats or other winter apparel to benefit our drive is this coming Tuesday, December 16th, at 7:30PM at Adams Jeep of Aberdeen. We’ll be hanging out with Ravens RB Justin Forsett. As you know, this is Justin’s first year in Baltimore and we can’t wait for him to experience the purple love that we know you’ll show him as the Ravens head down the most important stretch of the season.

Instead of charging to come to the show or for an autograph, all we’re asking you is to bring a coat in order to meet Justin and get his autograph. The folks at Adams Jeep have listed the event on eventbrite.com, and the “tickets” are limited as there is a very high demand. If you have been able to secure a ticket, simply bring your ticket along with at least one piece of winter clothing for Goodwill. (Note: We would love for you to bring more than one piece of winter clothing, but we can only guarantee one autograph per person, regardless of how many items you bring given the time restraint and the fact that we need to have Justin out of Adams Jeep in time for their game in Houston on Sunday, December 21st).

If you have not been able to secure a ticket, we would still love for you to come out and hang out at the show, help our cause, get swabbed courtesy of There Goes My Hero if you haven’t already, and PERHAPS there will be time at the end to say hello to Justin. We just can’t guarantee it as these events have been known to get a bit crazy given the passionate purple fans here in Baltimore, and we don’t want anyone to leave with a bad experience. This is a night of purple fun, holiday spirit and giving, and an overall celebration of what Ravens fans are all about! So we hope to see you out at Adams Jeep on Tuesday with coats in hand!

As always, thanks to our presenting sponsor Carl Delmont & Freedmont Mortgage for their continued support. Don’t make a 30 year mistake by choosing the wrong lender. Call Freedmont Mortgage! Also thanks to our good friends at Royal Farms or being a part of this event, as well as Enoch Office, Rugenix, and UMBC. Thanks to Goodwill for being such an awesome organization and partner of WNST and we can’t wait for another huge Goodwill truck to pull up to the WNST studios to pick up this year’s batch of clothing from our coat drive! And it goes without saying that if you need an awesome jeep and are looking for a car buying experience like none other, with a staff that makes YOU feel like part of THEIR family, you better check in with the people at Adams Jeep of Aberdeen. They can do things to your next jeep that you never even knew were possible. Trust us!

Last but certainly not least, as mentioned above, There Goes My Hero will be in the house once again adding people to the bone marrow registry. We’ve swabbed 100 new people over the past week at Greenmount Station & Buffalo Wild Wings Bel Air. Our goal is to match that number in one night on Tuesday night at Adams Jeep. Click here for more info on the swabbing process and requirements.

Thanks to all of you for continuing support everything we do in the community at WNST. If you all didn’t continue to show up and support our sponsors, events, and charity initiatives, we wouldn’t be here. We appreciate each and every one of you during this holiday season, and we can’t wait for you to join us in 2015. We’re dreaming big and we hope you’ll join us along the way!

Coach Trotz will be signing autographs and taking pictures with fans, but there will be a limit of one per person (time permitting).

As has become a WNST tradition, the great folks from There Goes My Hero will be in the house swabbing anyone who has not yet been added to the bone marrow transplant database. If you are between the ages of 18-55 and have not yet “swabbed,” please visit There Goes My Hero and learn more about how you can save a life by swabbing a Q-Tip inside your mouth for 30 seconds. Seriously! We’ve swabbed over a thousand people and have raised tens of thousands of dollars since we began our #JennStrong initiative this past spring. It’s our mission here at WNST to save as many lives as humanly possible, and we thank Coach Trotz for helping us work towards that goal!

As always, a special thanks to our friends at Freedmont Mortgage for presenting all of our live events here at WNST.
