Come Rock Your Red with Barry Trotz in Bel Air!

Posted on 21 November 2014 by WNST Staff

Attention Washington Capitals fans: This is your chance to ROCK YOUR RED! We at WNST, in conjunction with Comcast SportsNet, are pleased to announce a live appearance with Capitals head coach Barry Trotz on Wednesday, December 10th at Buffalo Wild Wings in Bel Air. The puck drops at 730pm! We’ll reminisce with Coach Trotz about his old days leading the Baltimore Skipjacks, and we’ll talk about his transition back to Washington D.C. as head coach of the Caps. Does he feel that the Caps are close to contending for a Stanley Cup? We’ll cover all of that and much more in a night of great food, fun, and puck talk at Buffalo Wild Wings in Bel Air!

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.

I once had a Donald Sterling “slip-up” of my own

Posted on 29 April 2014 by Drew Forrester

We’re back.

I’m back.

It feels so good.

After a weekend of web-related issues here at WNST.net and two days of Drew-n0t-having-a-computer, the Morning Dish has returned.

I have a brand new computer, which came with its own version of sticker-shock, so I should be good-to-go for the long haul.

I was guilty of my own Donald Sterling slip-up once — back in the early 1980’s.

A friend of mine somehow entangled himself with a girl who attended Old Mill High School.

He sheepishly said to me, “Do you mind if I’m dating a girl from Old Mill?  It won’t affect our friendship will it?”

I said, “No, not at all.  Just don’t bring her to any of the games at Glen Burnie and we’ll be fine.”

Speaking of the long haul and my new computer and all that stuff — I’m guessing Donald Sterling of the L.A. Clippers is no longer in it for the long haul.

There’s not much to say or write that hasn’t been said or written already.  I’ve listened six times to the audio clip of the conversation he had with his girlfriend that was tape recorded and shared across the country over the weekend and, honestly, I’m still not exactly sure what he was saying to her.  He sounded frustrated and confused, sort of like my late, great grandfather at the family picnic.

I don’t think highly of “her”, either, but in this case, his excuse for the whole thing can’t be “I have a maniac for a girlfriend.”  He said what he said.  Given the opportunity on several times to either correct her or say, “Wait, that’s not what I meant”, he couldn’t or didn’t do it.

Like I said, there’s nothing else to say about the whole thing, really.

Donald Sterling will be ushered out of the league in a fairly expeditious manner and the Clippers will probably be better off for it.


These NHL playoffs – even without the Washington Capitals – have been amazingly good.  The Kings were once down 3-0 in their series against the San Jose Sharks.  I wrote the words “once down” because they’ve now evened things up at 3-games-apiece after a Game 6 win in L.A.

The Chicago-St. Louis series was phenomenal.  The Blackhawks have somehow become my second favorite NHL franchise over the last few years.  Maybe it’s the jerseys.  It could go back to their win over the Flyers in the Stanley Cup a few years ago.  I don’t know why, but I just find myself watching them and rooting for them.

It’s probably the uniforms.


If not for that buffoon Nene getting tossed out of Game 3 in Washington, the Wizards might have swept the Bulls in four games.

That said, despite how well they’ve played to date, this thing is far from a done deal for the Wizards, even with their 3-games-to-1 lead.

Remember, they’re still the Wizards.

They’re the Orioles of the NBA East.

In other words, they’re not used to winning, so when the time comes for them to muscle up and push through, they’re not all that familiar with how to get it done.

I think they’ll figure out a way to get past Chicago now that they’re staked to a 3-1 lead…all I’m saying is don’t buy your second round playoff tickets yet.

Nothing lucky about it — the kid QB in Indy is a stud

Posted on 06 January 2014 by Drew Forrester

Musings from a sports-filled weekend —

A friend of mine sent me a text on Friday morning and asked me to give him the winner of the PGA Tour event in Hawaii.  After quizzing him on why he didn’t text me the day before (Thursday is the traditional start day for a pro tournament, but they’re playing this one Friday through Monday), I quickly shot him back the name of the winner:  “Take Jordan Spieth” I texted.

Lots of people over the last decade and a half have wondered when the next young gun would come along to challenge the likes of Tiger Woods.  A lot of names have surfaced, some have completely fizzled, some have made some money, but none – make that NONE – have come close to being as good as Woods.  College golf hotshots come and go like the breeze.  These guys – among others – were going to be the guy to challenge Woods: Luke Donald (has as many major titles as you, me and your neighbor’s cat), Troy Matteson (who?), Ryan Moore (nice hat), Jamie Lovemark (still looking for a win) and Rickie Fowler (sharp dresser, can’t win a big one).

But wait…because someone HAS showed up — and he WILL challenge Woods and all of those big wigs on the PGA Tour.

His name is Jordan Spieth.

Win or lose today in Hawaii (he’s tied for the lead through 54 holes), he’s the one “kid” that’s come along who has staying power.  He’s an all-world putter, which means he can win on any given week.  He drives it like a maniac and stripes his irons. Once he spends an off-season or two learning some short game wizardy like Woods and Phil Mickelson, he’ll be the guy everyone tries to beat well into the next decade.

He’ll finish with more career major titles than Mickelson.

Oh, and I’m opening up my own Fantasy Golf tips business.  It’s $2.75 for a “regular event” and $6.50 for a major.


There’s nothing else new to say about Towson football that hasn’t been said already, either on Twitter, Facebook or here, at WNST.net.

Rob Ambrose has turned Towson football into a championship program, despite getting beat in the FCS title game on Saturday, 35-7.  That’s it.  His first two years, they won three games total.  Saturday in Frisco, Texas, they played for the national championship.


They’ll be back…and they’ll win one of those championships.


Two takes from Saturday night’s Caps loss in Minnesota.

Those sweaters the Wild wore were freaking sharp.  I need one of those.  Holy cow.

Next — the Caps aren’t very good.  They need some offense. Big time.  They CREATE chances.  Chances galore.  But they can’t finish them off.

They’ll make the playoffs, but don’t be saving up your money for a cross country trip to Anaheim for the Stanley Cup Finals.  Ain’t happenin’, Caps fans.


By the way, Martin Erat of the Caps has one goal in 48 games over two seasons for the Caps.

One goal.

If I had played in 48 games, even now at the tender age of 50, I’d have two goals.


Florida State gets a visit from the Cleat of Reality tonight in the national championship game.

Auburn 34 – Florida State 28


Gotta tip your hat to Andrew Luck for what he pulled off on Saturday in Indianapolis.

The kid’s a freakin’ big-time player.

Let’s see what he does on Saturday in New England against the genius coach up there.
