Also, national Pecan Pie Day is coming up this Saturday. So here’s this. (Oddly enough, if you’re like me this isn’t safe for work either. I’ll be staying at this desk for a bit.)

Remember back when we could pretend like we didn’t know how good Bruno Mars was?

Smallpools is responsible for one of the more notable songs of the last couple years.

Support our boys from All Time Low. They’re good boys.

UMBC’s Brown named Under Armour Athletics Director of the Year

Posted on 10 June 2013 by WNST Staff

Orlando, Fla.– UMBC Director of Athletics Dr. Charles Brown has been named a 2012-13 Division I-AAA Under Armour Athletics Director of the Year (ADOY) Award recipient by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA).

Dr. Brown will be honored at the 2013 NACDA & Affiliates Convention Week, June 10-15 at the World Center Marriott Resort in Orlando, Fla.  The ADOY award winners will be honored at the James J. Corbett Awards Luncheon on Saturday, June 15.

The Under Armour AD of the Year Award program was created to honor intercollegiate directors of athletics for their commitment and administrative excellence within a campus and/or college community environment. The award spans seven divisions (NCAA FBS, FCS, Division I-AAA, II, III, NAIA/Other Four-Year Institutions and Junior/Community Colleges) and annually honors 28 athletics directors (four from each division). AD of the Year Award recipients will receive their awards at the annual NACDA Convention.

After completing a 24-year tenure at UMBC, Dr. Charles Brown will retire as director of athletics at the end of the month.

Over the past 15 years, UMBC teams have won 46 conference championships and made 29 appearances in NCAA Championship competition. From 1998-2003, UMBC was named the top overall program in the Northeast Conference, and it has consistently ranked as a top-four program in the America East Conference, since joining in 2003. Under his leadership, the Retriever Activities Center was redeveloped and the outdoor aquatic complex, Retriever Soccer Park and a national-class track and field complex were constructed.

Brown has also worked tirelessly to promote healthfulness and spirit throughout the UMBC community, helping to create the UMBC Alma Mater and encouraging activity in the local community, being recognized by the NCAA for its commitment to service. While growing the Retriever program, Brown has also worked to raise UMBC’s profile regionally and nationally, serving two terms as president of the Maryland Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics and one term on the NCAA Division I Championships/Competition Cabinet.

Brown will join UMBC’s Division of Professional Studies, where he will work with others to explore the feasibility of an undergraduate concentration or track in Sports Management.

NACDA, now in its 48th year, is the professional and educational association for more than 6,500 college athletics administrators at more than 1,600 institutions throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. More than 2,200 athletics administrators annually attend the NACDA Convention. Additionally, NACDA administers 13 professional associations, including six for the separate business units that report directly to the athletics directors.

In 2007, Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank, a Maryland native, purchased the 530-acre farm implementing a long-term restoration plan with the mission to breed, raise and race Thoroughbreds at the sport’s highest level, while preserving its storied and rich tradition.

Dude I’ve probably watched the video of Emmylou Harris playing “Long Black Veil” with Dave Matthews SIX MILLION TIMES in my life….

Bob Schneider does a song called “Honeypot” that as far as I’m concerned is just the bees knees…

Jane’s Addiction taught me so much about prostitution when I was a young man…

If you’re into Trombone Shorty you’re just likely not into anything human beings should possibly enjoy…

Baltimore County Restaurant Week (Thursday-Sunday throughout Baltimore County); Baltimore Improv Festival (Thursday-Sunday Creative Alliance); Wayans Brothers (Tuesday & Wednesday Baltimore Comedy Factory); Godfrey (Thursday-Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory); “The Expendables 2″ in theaters (Friday); Shark Week (Tuesday-Thursday Discovery Channel)

A recommendation. Go to Jimmy’s Famous Seafood during Restaurant Week. Order the Kung Pao Shrimp Tacos. Don’t bother wearing pants.

And since it’s Shark Week, here’s Tracy Morgan…

Here’s a look at Maryland hoops PRIDE uniforms

Here’s a look at Maryland hoops PRIDE uniforms

Posted on 20 June 2012 by Glenn Clark

From ESPN.com’s Paul Lukas (you may be aware of his “Uni Watch” column) comes this treat on Twitter this morning.

Here is what Lukas has described as a “legit developmental rendering” of the new Maryland basketball “PRIDE” uniforms from Under Armour.

In a recent interview on “The Reality Check”, Terrapins basketball coach Mark Turgeon had hinted the unis wouldn’t be quite as wild as the Terps’ football PRIDE unis. If these end up being what the Terps wear to the Comcast Center floor (they won’t be primary uniforms), he’ll be right.

Here’s a statement from the University…

“The Pride design has become a central part of the identity of Maryland Athletics and it presents a tremendous opportunity to be incorporated into our basketball program. However, the designs being circulated today on the internet are only draft renderings. Maryland Athletics and Under Armour will make sure our fans know when we launch Pride for Maryland Basketball.” 

Thoughts?

Honorable Mention: WNBA-Indiana Fever @ Washington Mystics (Friday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet); Tennis: ATP Garry Weber Open (Tuesday-Saturday 1pm from Halle, GER on Tennis Channel)

10. Bonnie Raitt (Sunday 6pm Pier Six Pavilion); Beach Boys (Friday 6:30pm Merriweather Post Pavilion); Neil Diamond (Thursday 8pm Verizon Center); Dave Matthews Band/Gary Clark Jr. (Saturday 7pm Jiffy Lube Live); Martina McBride (Wednesday 8pm Wolf Trap); Reel Big Fish (Friday 8pm Power Plant Live); Of Montreal (Thursday 8pm Recher Theatre); Lindsey Buckingham (Thursday 9pm Baltimore Soundstage), Lisa Marie Presley (Friday 8:30pm Baltimore Soundstage); Kelly Bell Band/Cris Jacobs (Saturday 7pm 8×10 Club); Robert Cray Band (Thursday 8pm Rams Head on Stage); Grouplove (Wednesday 7pm 9:30 Club); The Cult (Tuesday 8pm Fillmore Silver Spring); Bouncing Souls (Tuesday 7:30pm Black Cat DC); Ziggy Marley (Wednesday 8pm Howard Theatre), Little Richard (Saturday 8pm Howard Theatre); Keane (Thursday 8pm Strathmore); Rush “Clockwork Angels” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

I’ve already established that “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” is the greatest Beach Boys song of all time. Now I point out that I’m an absolute hack because I also enjoy this clip from Full House…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOZ5dEiZYCo

A lot of people know I’m a significant Dave Matthews fan. But do you know that I’ve proclaimed my all time favorite Dave Matthews tune to be THIS?…

And if you go see DMB don’t stay in the parking lot too long. Gary Clark Jr. is freaking AMAZING. You may remember him from a collaboration he had with Ray Lewis a few weeks back at the NFL Draft…

Wait…The Cult? Isn’t that the band that does the song from that commercial in that Super Bowl?

9. Star-Spangled Sailabration (Wednesday-Monday Inner Harbor, Fells Point, Locust Point); Rock of Ages” and “That’s My Boy” out in theaters (Friday); Gilbert Gottfried (Saturday Magooby’s Joke House); Richard Lewis (Thursday-Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory); Gary Valentine (Thursday-Saturday DC Improv)

Ryan Chell and I are going to see That’s My Boy Tuesday night. It will probably make six billion dollars and everyone involved will get new cars. It used to piss me off because I don’t really find Adam Sandler’s shtick to be funny anymore, but there are a couple issues involved. One-Adam Sandler sat down with us at the Super Bowl and was really nice. He even opened up about my idol Chris Farley, which is something I found out later he really never does…

Two-over the past few months I’ve developed a unique friendship with Happy Madison star Peter Dante, who might be the best human being on the face of the planet. He’s the guy on the right below…

So now I hope the movie is funny and they make a billion dollars. Damn you, nice guys.
