Give a spit and prep for Stanley Cup playoffs with Caps head coach Barry Trotz at Michael’s Cafe Timonium March 29

Posted on 17 March 2018 by Nestor Aparicio

All Washington Caps fans are welcome to join us on Thursday, March 29th at Michael’s Café in Timonium as we welcome former Baltimore Skipjacks head coach Barry Trotz back to Baltimore County. We’ll be chatting at length about the Stanley Cup playoffs and the Capitals quest to win the goblet as we swab for There Goes My Hero and the bone marrow registry.

Along with our WNST.net Caps historian and blogger Ed Frankovic, I will be bringing out the tough questions for Coach Trotz and doing some hockey history with one of my favorite people.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and every year the stories of the old days in Baltimore grow taller.

And, yes, pictures like this exist.

I would encourage anyone who has followed our #JennStrong leukemia journey over the past four years to come out and take a few minutes to learn about how we’re trying to save more lives by getting more young people onto the DKMS bone marrow registry to assist blood cancer patients around the world.

As always we appreciate the sponsorship of Freedmont Mortgage, Cole Roofing, the Maryland Jockey Club and the many partners we’ve had over the years for There Goes My Hero. And we’re really looking forward to having some crab cakes and beer after the Orioles beat the Minnesota Twins on Opening Day. If you’re going to Camden Yards, drop by and see us afterward and meet Coach Trotz.

Rock your red and join us at Michael’s Café in Timonium and help us celebrate their 34th year serving those tasty crab cakes. Join us for a cup of that famous “split level” soup and a prime aged steak and a glass of wine on Thursday, March 29th.

And #GiveASpit and #PuckLeukemia.

Flacco Partners With Baltimore Humane Society

Posted on 09 January 2012 by WNST Staff

Baltimore Humane Society Shows Ravens Spirit with Flacco Giveaway and Campaign

Organization to give away Flacco autographed merchandise
as part of organization’s awareness campaign

Jan. 09, 2012-Reisterstown, MD — The Baltimore Humane Society has a new signal caller.

The non-profit group announced today a new animal rescue campaign featuring Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. The focus of the campaign is to encourage Marylanders to team up with the Baltimore Humane Society to adopt, volunteer or donate to the area’s only no-kill shelter.

To encourage the public to engage with Bmore Humane™ and to generate excitement for the Flacco campaign, the organization is giving away eight autographed prizes — a football, jersey, photographs, Ravens dog water dishes, Ravens dog t-shirts and dog toys signed by the quarterback. People can either enter the contest on the organization’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/bmorehumane) or visit the shelter. An official NFL football and authentic NFL Raven Jersey will be raffled off to people visiting the shelter and the remaining prizes will be given to Facebook fans. The shelter is also asking people to share pictures of their pets in the Ravens spirit by emailing ravens-spirit@bmorehumane.org. Select photos will be shared on the Bmore Humane Facebook page.

Flacco presented the shelter a $9000 check several months ago which helps the facility maintain the area’s only no-kill animal shelter.  At that time he said, “I grew up with a deaf white boxer who became a member of our family. When you come here and see animals put in these situations you feel for them and it’s tough not to get involved.”

The campaign includes a billboard on the Jones-Falls Expressway featuring Flacco holding an adoptable Baltimore Humane Society puppy. The board faces north at Druid Park Lake Drive/28th Street. Boards are also located in Lutherville-Timonium, Owings Mills and Reisterstown.

The Baltimore Humane Society (BHS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to the mission of protecting, saving, and caring for unwanted and homeless animals.

The campaign was created to address the myths that exist in the community surrounding BHS’ association with other animal welfare groups. There is a misconception that the organization is supported by money from local government or private sources such as the Humane Society of the United States.

By having Flacco as the face of the organization, the Baltimore Humane Society hopes that the community will understand it is a private local shelter that is not associated with the Maryland SPCA, the Baltimore Area Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS), or Baltimore County Animal Control. One of the major differences between BHS and the other area animal shelters is that BHS is a proud no-kill shelter that relies totally on private donations for funding.

About The Baltimore Humane Society:

The Baltimore Humane Society was founded in 1927 by Mrs. Elsie Seeger Barton.  As a privately funded non-profit organization, we receive no funding from the county, city, or federal governments, and we are not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States or any other animal welfare organization. To support animal care operations, BHS depends on the income from fundraising events, and donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations in order to continue its day-to-day operations and properly care for the animals at the shelter. In addition to the care of dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals it also offers low cost veterinary care to the public and a pet cemetery with grief support services.

What did Flacco REALLY Tell WNST at Monday Night Live?

Posted on 17 December 2011 by WNST Staff

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco’s appearance on “Monday Night Live” with teammate Brendon Ayanbadejo, Glenn Clark, Nestor Aparicio and Luke Jones has been of great interest around the country. The interview has appeared at ESPN, NFL Network, NFL.com, SI, NBC Sports, CBS Sports, Comcast SportsNet and countless other places around the internet and other forms of multi-media.

Heck, even a certain FM sports talk station in Charm City referenced the interview on-air and online, although they wouldn’t mention where it came from.

The opinions of Flacco’s comments have varied from analyst to analyst, fan to fan and even from WNST contributor to WNST contributor.

So here is the transcription of some of Flacco’s more interesting answers from Monday’s show at Hightopps Backstage Grille in Timonium. You can hear the segment in question here.

(Thanks to our friends at SportsRadioInterviews.com…)

On fans reacting and sometimes overacting to wins and losses:

“Yeah it’s pretty hilarious. I mean everyone reacts week to week and I mean most people really have no idea what really went on in the game and how everybody played and what was supposed to be happening. I can look at an NFL game and say ‘hey this is what I thought should have happened’ but I can be way off base because I don’t know what they game planned for the week and things like that. It’s funny to see all these things. I mean look at Tim Tebow. I like Tim, but you have a tendency to want to, I don’t want to see Tim do bad, but look what happens after he wins a football game. If you watched Sportscenter today it was Tim Tebow then something else, Tim Tebow then something else, and Tim Tebow then something else. When we beat the Steelers were we on TV? No. I couldn’t even find a Baltimore Ravens highlight. I think that’s kinda the way it is around Baltimore. We don’t always get our respect but you gotta deal with it and go out there every week and just win football games.”

On the idea that there are hurdles that he needs to get past to gain peoples respect:

“It’s pretty funny. It really means nothing at the end of the day. We beat the Steelers. Just because Ben wasn’t playing doesn’t mean anything. All those games are just as important. To be honest with you, in the regular season since I’ve been here we’re .500 against those guys and if you were to ask people they would probably say we have just one win against them. It’s funny to hear that kind of thing. It just kinda goes with the territory. You just have to continue to take it, deal with it, and not really worry about it. As far as winning the big one we’ve won a lot of big games around here. The other thing is quarterbacks are not the only guy on the team to win football games. When we do win football games I don’t seem to think that a lot of people say ‘hey Joe Flacco won that football game.’ When we lose the football game that might be the case but obviously that’s not all reality. As a quarterback it’s your job to go in there and realize that and be the guy that goes out there and plays the same way every week and puts your team in position to win football games. That’s what I’ve been doing I think and that’s why we’re 10-3.”

Whether or not he pays attention to other QB’s around the league and what they are doing:

“I don’t necessarily pay attention and every week look at that and see that. I guess every now and then you do and just see kinda what they’re doing but I don’t watch the TV shows a lot. Like I said every now and then you see it and you hear it. You just do. You can’t help yourself a little bit.”

Whether or not he heard the criticism before the season started about him being the reason the Ravens didn’t have a better season:

“Last year we were a 12-4 football team. I mean we didn’t win the division because Pittsburgh had a tiebreaker and we won a playoff game. Yeah it’s not what everybody wants to hear and we didn’t win the Super Bowl but it was a pretty good year by our football team and I had a pretty good football season myself. You go home and all you want to do is not be criticized and it does seem like that. And hey my standpoint is I just think we’re disrespected as an organization when it comes to the media. We’re not a very big market, the bottom line is we don’t need a lot of help because we have a great fan-base every week and we win football games. We’re not a losing football team that needs to be out there in the media and be talked up like we are all-world. We are. We go out there and play and win football games. People usually look for a reason to put us down and where does that go to? It goes to the quarterback because we have a good defense. Teams want to see us run the ball and they want to see our defense win games. When we don’t do that and don’t win a football game where does the blame fall? Onto the quarterback. What are you gonna do? You’re the quarterback. You’re one of 32 guys that has the position that you have and it’s really not even that much because not everybody plays every week. Hey that’s why most of these guys, including myself get paid the way we do because we’re the guys that have to deal with it at the end of the day. When we don’t win they’re going to put it on us and that’s the bottom line.”

Whether or not he feels like his role in the offense has continued to evolve:

“The biggest thing for me is just the fact that when you come in as a rookie you don’t know a lot of guys, you’re a little bit uncomfortable, and you’re put in the starting spot and you’re just trying to play well. As you’re around a team, as you’re around guys you become more and more comfortable in your own skin and you become more and more comfortable to voice your opinion. Now we have a lot of young guys on the team so you have to do that. Before we were a pretty veteran offense and a pretty veteran team and a lot of those guys have developed those skills ten plus years in the NFL. It’s not my job to come in here and tell them to change something or something like that but it is my job to kinda get these young guys up to speed and mold them into the kind of player that I want them to be and they want to be. I think I’m able to be more comfortable in my own skin and voice my opinion a little bit more.”

Here’s the video…

Here are the Details on our “Coats & Cans in Memory of Fergy” Charity Drive

Posted on 31 October 2011 by WNST Staff

From Monday, October 31 through Friday, November 18, WNST.net will collect canned goods and non-perishable food items at the AM1570 WNST studios (1550 Hart Rd. Towson, MD 21286).  Those items will be collected during normal business hours (6am-6pm).

We will also collect at all scheduled WNST events, including “Monday Night Live” with Baltimore Ravens LB Brendon Ayanbadejo at Hightopps in Timonium, our Miller Lite Towson pep rallies at the Greene Turtle and other events specific to the drive that we will announce in the future.

We will give those items to the Canton Baptist Church for their distribution to Baltimore’s homeless and we’ll also give some of the donated food to the Bea Gaddy Thanksgiving Day dinner.

Last year we donated 2,400 cans to the Canton Baptist Church.  This year we’d like to do 5,000 cans. For counting purposes, we count EVERYTHING, meaning if someone drops off oatmeal or some other “non-can” item, we count that as a can.

In addition, we’re going to ask that members of the WNST commuinty who can’t contribute food (or even if they can) to donate a penny per-can to a scholarship fund that has been set up for Fergy (in White Marsh)’s children.

Listeners/readers can make their checks out to:

The Cameron and Adrianna Commodari Scholarship Fund and send them to Drew Forrester’s attention at the radio station. We will announce the amount of cans raised on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. We ask that WNST community members donate UP TO 5,000 cans-so donations will not exceed $50 no matter how many cans are collected.Fergy’s brother Marshall will come to the studio sometime in December and do a few minutes on the air and we’ll present him with the money. We obviously won’t collect any of the money until after the canned food drive is over on November 18 and we see how many cans we did.

If you don’t have the important information on Fergy (Fernando Commodari), you should know that he was a longtime listener of the station and an active supporter and contributor to any and all of our charitable endeavors.  He brought 100 cans of food to the Fullerton Pub last December when Drew & Glenn Clark did the first canned food drive.  Anytime we did some sort of fund-raiser, he always contributed. He was killed in a car accident this past July.

Once the canned food drive is over, we’ll start with the coats and winter apparel drive.  We’ll take coats, sweaters, sweatshirts, hats, gloves, etc.  All of those items will be donated to Helping Up Mission downtown.  The coat/apparel drive will run from Monday, November 21 through Friday, December 16.  We will drop off those items on Tuesday, December 20 at the Helping Up Mission downtown.

Please help us make the most out of these three worthwhile charity drives. As you know, we pride ourselves at WNST for being a community of contributors, sponsors, listeners, readers, Twitter followers, Facebook friends, etc. The one thing we have in common is that we all care DEEPLY about this area. We’re grateful for the opportunity to try to do further good.
