Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

October 30, 2007 | Glenn Clark

So we’re a week away from Monday Night Football, and I have a question. What’s your favorite Monday Night memory in Ravens’ history? There was the final game in 2001-2002 when they clinched a playoff spot with an UGLY win over Minnesota. There was OF COURSE the Fightin’ Redmans victory over the Broncos with Todd Heap’s catch and Mac’s return. But, it HAS to be the win at Nashville when they left the Titans on the 1, right? I’m sticking with that one. Let’s see what everyone has to say…

SOME QUICK THOUGHTS:
-I can’t put my jealousy of Nestor Aparicio into words right now. What he’s doing is the definition of special, even for a man who’s been able to do a lot of special things. I was chatting with Frank Robinson in the dugout at Chase Field during the NLCS, and I couldn’t help but call my dad later to tell him that I realized then exactly why it was worth it for me to move to Arizona just to stay in this business. But to have the chance to follow the Iron Man around Asia as he attempts to teach the great game of baseball…….that’s SPECIAL.
-It is good that the Ravens will be healthy for MNF, but let’s see how Steve McNair is throwing the ball in practice. Note to Casey W, Jamison H, Matt Palmer, etc-I want to know just exactly what percentage of McNair’s passes sail over the heads of the receivers. Let’s see if there are still groin injury effects on display.
-I’m actually excited that the BC game will be in primetime. I have a funny feeling that the Terps might actually have it together that night.
-The Terps women should be playing to have fun this season, but they didn’t win ANY big games last year, and they need to prove that they can win them when they count. This team SHOULD be favored to another “Natty”, but this time they need to win it with talent, not by catching lightning in a bottle.
Talk to you tomorrow.
