Our Ravens/Chargers “Pats on the Ass”

Posted on 25 November 2012 by Glenn Clark

After every Baltimore Ravens victory, Ryan Chell and I take to the airwaves on “The Nasty Purple Postgame Show” on AM1570 WNST.net to offer “Pats on the Ass” to players who have done something to deserve the honor.

We give pats to two defensive players, two offensive players and one “Wild Card”-either another offensive or defensive player, a Special Teams player or a coach. We offer a “Pat on Both Cheeks” to someone who stands out, our version of a “Player of the Game.” Ryan and I select five different players/coaches each.

Here are our “Pats on the Ass” following the Ravens’ 16-13 win over San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium…

Okay…we only have a few days left…we NEED your help!

Posted on 14 November 2012 by Glenn Clark

We were in our weekly WNST.net staff meeting Tuesday when Drew Forrester looked up and said, “wait? Did you Thanksgiving was NEXT Thursday? That has to be inaccurate!”

I think we’ve all had a sinking feeling over the course of the last few weeks, as we’ve realized Thanksgiving is happening on the earliest possible date on the calendar-next Thursday, November 22nd.

It’s with that in mind that I’m making one last push for you guys to help us out before then.

The last few years, Drew Forrester and I (with the incredible help of Nestor Aparicio and the rest of the WNST Staff, as well as Enoch Office Equipment) have collected canned goods and other non-perishable food items to help make Thanksgiving and the entire holiday season brighter for the less fortunate in the Baltimore area.

You know what? I misspoke there.

YOU all have collected the cans, we’ve just tried to pitch in and help out all of you.

When I was part of “The Morning Reaction”, I used to try to explain it this way.

All of us are part of the WNST Community. As hosts, we’re just the part of the community that has microphones in front of us. Otherwise, we’re just part of the group. The community isn’t necessarily people who are fans of Drew, Nestor, Luke Jones, Catch The Buzz, Thyrl Nelson or myself; the community is made up of Baltimoreans who are sports fans.

We fall into that group. We’re Baltimore Ravens fans. We’re Baltimore Orioles fans. We’re Maryland Terrapins and Towson Tigers and Baltimore Blast and UMBC Retrievers and Morgan State Bears and Navy Midshipmen and Coppin State Eagles and Loyola Greyhounds and Calvert how the Calvert Hall Cardinals and Perry Hall Gators fans.

It’s a community I’m incredibly proud to call myself a part of. In fact, I have made it clear I was a part of the WNST community long before I ever worked at WNST. I was a part of the WNST community from the inception of the outlet. I was a part of the WNST community when I was working at the community of living in Arizona.

Some of the members of the WNST community are going to need our help to have a more meaningful holiday season.

I’ll never…EVER…forget when a listener and caller who is a REGULAR at WNST events approached me a few years ago and told me it meant a little bit more to them to be donating to our effort because it had only been a few years earlier that they found themselves at a shelter needing the donations of others not only to provide a holiday celebration, but just to get by.

Once again, that listener was in the studio at 1550 Hart Rd. in Towson last week making their annual donation to our efforts. It warmed my heart in a way I couldn’t possibly explain.

I don’t want to sound like I’m begging, but I’m absolutely begging.

We got off to a great start to our canned good drive thanks to some significant donations early in November. But as our deadline approaches next Tuesday, we NEED you guys to step up a bit.

We’ll be taking our food donations to the Canton Baptist Church food kitchen and the Bea Gaddy Thanksgiving Dinner again this year, but we have to make the donation next TUESDAY the 20th. We’re up against it.

So I’m making one more push.

We usually do an annual “hangout” night during the food drive. Unfortunately between our WNST.net live Ravens player shows, Hurricane Sandy, an election and a trip to Brooklyn, it was almost impossible for us to work out a date before the early Thanksgiving date.

Instead, I’m hoping you’ll come hang out with us this Thursday night. Bud Light Thursday Night Live presented by Freedmont Mortgage is at The Grill at Harryman House, 340 Main Street in Reisterstown. Our host is Ravens TE Dennis Pitta, his special guest is LB Dannell Ellerbe-who has been playing as well if not better than any Ravens defensive player recently.

If you come out Thursday night and bring me canned goods/other non-perishable food items, I will give you a “PRIORITY” spot at the front of the line to meet the guys. I’ll also throw in a pair of tickets to the Maryland/Towson women’s basketball game December 11th at the Towson Center. I know damn well you’ll be begging me for tickets to this game (I remember because you were doing the same thing the last time the Terrapins visited Towson) which will likely end up sold out. I have ten pairs of tickets, so the first ten of you to bring me canned goods Thursday night will get them.

Also, I’ll be hanging out after the show Thursday night in the Tavern Room at The Grill at Harryman House, checking out the Bills/Dolphins game, debating the merits of whether or not the Orioles should sign Jonny Gomes, doing vodka shots in honor of Alex Len, trying out quarterbacks who could play against Florida State next week and talking about some little football game in the Steel City Sunday night.

I’m hoping to convince Drew, Luke and Ryan to stick around as well and hang out after the show. It should be a good time.

We’ll do the same thing next Monday night at Hooters in Towson for Monday Night Live.

If you can’t get out to either show, we’d LOVE to have you stop by the station any day between now and Tuesday with your donations.

We need to get this done Baltimore. We owe this to those who need it this holiday season, have needed in the past and might need it in the future.

These are O’s fans. They’re Ravens fans and Terps fans. They need us. Like Bruce Springsteen would say, we need to take care of our own.

Hope to see you Thursday night.

-G

Pitta & Dickson talk Patriots, Flacco & teamwork at Thursday Night Live

Posted on 21 September 2012 by WNSTV

The WNST.net crew hosted the second in a series of Thursday Night Live radio shows last night with Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta at The Grill at Harryman House in Reisterstown. Hope you enjoy the show, which featured tons of football talk and an extended visit from Pitta’s mate Ed Dickson. Tons of laughs, tons of kids getting autographs and a great hour of conversation with a “two tight end set.”

Next week, we’ll do a special Tuesday night edition of Thursday Night Live at Buffalo Wild Wings in Bel Air with Dennis Pitta. The show will have a special 7:30 p.m. start time due to the Ravens’ short work week for the Thursday game vs. Cleveland.

A special thanks to all of our sponsors who make these shows possible including our title sponsor Freedmont Mortgage plus The Goldfather, ABC Rental and Raven Zone, who provide prizes and promotional consideration so that we can bring these awesome WNST live events to the community.

Hope you enjoy the show!

“The Five Plays That Determined The Game” – Ravens/Eagles

Posted on 18 September 2012 by Glenn Clark

Following every Baltimore Ravens game this season, Ryan Chell and I will take to the airwaves Tuesdays on “The Reality Check” on AM1570 WNST.net with a segment known as “The Five Plays That Determined The Game.”

It’s a simple concept. We’ll select five plays from each game that determined the outcome. These five plays will best represent why the Ravens won or lost each game.

This will be our final analysis of the previous game before switching gears towards the next game on the schedule.

Here are the five plays that determined the Ravens’ 24-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field…

(Note: not all pictures are always of actual play)

Glenn Clark’s Plays…

5. DeMeco Ryans intercepts Joe Flacco pass intended for Dennis Pitta (3rd quarter)

4. Jeremy Maclin 23 yard TD catch from Michael Vick (3rd quarter)

3. Jacoby Jones 25 yard TD catch from Joe Flacco nullified by offensive pass interference (4th quarter)

2. Joe Flacco pass intended for Ray Rice incomplete on 4th & 1 (4th quarter)

1. Joe Flacco pass to Dennis Pitta incomplete on 3rd & 1 (4th quarter)
