Blast kick off program to benefit PH shooting victim Saturday

Posted on 12 October 2012 by WNST Staff

Baltimore – The Baltimore Blast will host a soccer festival tomorrow at Honeygo Regional Park as part of the team’s “Goals for Daniel” program.   The program, initiated last month in conjunction with the Borowy family, will raise money for medical costs for Daniel Borowy, the 17-year-old victim of the Perry Hall High School shooting.  Daniel, who underwent three surgeries after the shooting, will attend the event along with his family from 2:30-4 p.m.

The soccer festival will take place tomorrow from 2-6 p.m. at Honeygo Regional Park.  Soccer players, students and members of the Perry Hall community and the surrounding areas will raise money for their participation in small-sided 6 vs. 6 soccer games. All proceeds from the soccer marathon will go directly to the Borowy family.  The soccer marathon will also feature a small-sided game between Blast players and participants from the Allied Sports Program at 4 p.m.

A 17-year-old special-needs student at Perry Hall Senior High School, Daniel has a love of sports including soccer, basketball, baseball, softball, bowling, swimming, horseback riding, tennis, gymnastics, hiking and climbing.  He has been an active participant in the Allied Sports Program through PHHS, Harford County’s Discovery League for individuals with disabilities, the Parkville Recreation Conquerors Program and Kingsville Recreation. Daniel also loves to dance, especially to the music of his favorite singer, Lady Gaga.

In addition to the soccer festival, the Blast will also host Goals for Daniel night at 1st Mariner Arena on November 3.  Students from all over Baltimore County will be invited to attend the Blast’s opening night game and the team will donate a portion of ticket sales to Borowy’s family.

Additionally, the Blast players will continue to visit local Elementary, Middle and High Schools, urging students to learn from this incident and others like it.  The Blast diversity and respect school program, which highlights the diversity among the Blast teammates, features a soccer volleyball game between Blast players and school teachers along with the message that people who come from different backgrounds with vastly diverse experiences and beliefs can successfully work together as a team to reach a common goal.  Additional information on the Blast School Program is available at www.baltimoreblast.com.

“The Blast is happy to be able to help Daniel and his family,” said Blast President and General Manager Kevin Healey.  “We always are looking for ways to make a positive impact on our community.  This event will be a fun way to help Daniel and raise money for his medical bills.  We encourage everyone to participate.”

The soccer marathon teams will be broken into travel, rec and just for fun levels of play and each player must raise a minimum of $20 in order to participate.  Teams and groups who want to participate in the Goals for Daniel soccer marathon should fill out the entry form available on www.baltimoreblast.com or call Mike Conway at 410-558-4292.

Blast to honor Perry Hall shooting victim Borowy

Posted on 24 September 2012 by WNST Staff

“GOALS FOR DANIEL” PROGRAM WILL RAISE MONEY FOR PERRY HALL RESIDENT DANIEL BOROWY 

Baltimore – The Baltimore Blast announced today that the team has partnered with the family of Daniel Borowy to create the “Goals for Daniel” program to raise money for medical costs for Daniel Borowy, the 17-year-old victim of the Perry Hall High School shooting that took place on August 24.  Borowy, who underwent three surgeries after the shooting, has recently returned home to continue his recovery.

Goals for Daniel will kick off on October 13 with a soccer marathon at Honeygo Regional Park from 2-6 p.m.  Soccer players, students and members of the Perry Hall community and the surrounding areas will raise money for their participation in small-sided 6 vs. 6 soccer games. All proceeds from the soccer marathon will go directly to the Borowy family.  The soccer marathon will also feature a small-sided game between Blast players and participants from the Allied Sports Program.

Daniel, a 17-year-old special-needs student at Perry Hall Senior High School, has a love of sports including soccer, basketball, baseball, softball, bowling, swimming, horseback riding, tennis, gymnastics, hiking and climbing.  He has been an active participant in the Allied Sports Program through PHHS, Harford County’s Discovery League for individuals with disabilities, the Parkville Recreation Conquerors Program and Kingsville Recreation. Daniel also loves to dance, especially to the music of his favorite singer, Lady Gaga.

“I am really excited that this event will not only raise funds for Daniel’s medical expenses but also raise awareness of the need to kick bullying and violence out of our schools,” said Carissa Smith, a close friend of Daniel’s sister who approached the Blast with the idea for a fundraising partnership.  “We all need to respect and be patient with each other’s differences.  Thanks to his athletic interests, he is strong enough to get through this. If you have ever met him you know that he would never hurt anyone. He didn’t deserve this at all. I hope to see him a month from now, singing in the car, turning the music up too loud, and doing everything he can do to make me laugh.”

In addition to the soccer marathon, the Blast will also host Goals for Daniel night at 1st Mariner Arena on November 3.  Students from all over Baltimore County will be invited to attend the Blast’s opening night game and the team will donate a portion of ticket sales to Borowy’s family.

Come say hi to Joe Flacco LIVE at Bateman’s Perry Hall tonight

Posted on 02 April 2012 by WNST Staff

We haven’t heard or seen much of the very low-key Joe Flacco since the abrupt end of the Baltimore Ravens’ season but tonight the starting quarterback will join the WNST.net crew for a conversation and a wrap-up of the 2011 season and the Fu Five Fighters For Flacco, which raised nearly $10,000 for the Living Classrooms Foundation.

The radio show will be hosted by Glenn Clark, Drew Forrester, Luke Jones and Nestor Aparicio and will begin at 7 p.m. at Bill Bateman’s at 9629 Bel Air Road in Perry Hall.

Because of the large crowds we’re expecting here are some guidelines and what to expect if you are planning to attend:

We will be selling autograph tickets for $25 each to the first 100 people starting at 5 p.m. All of the money will go to the Living Classrooms Foundation. Flacco will not be available to meet or take photographs beyond the 100 purchasers.

One lucky winner at the end of the show will be invited to join the private dinner with Flacco at the conclusion of the radio show at 8 p.m.

– ONLY ONE autographed item only for the ticket holders and no pictures (there’s simply not enough time to accommodate 100 pictures in addition to the autographs.

– Show starts at 7 and dinner starts at 8.

We hope to see you tonight at Bateman’s in Perry Hall with Joe Flacco!

Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 13 December 2011 by WNST Staff

Honorable Mention: High School Basketball-Bel Air @ Perry Hall (Wednesday 6:30pm), St. Frances @ John Carroll (Wednesday 7pm); Mixed Martial Arts: Strikeforce-Gilbert Melendez vs. Jorge Masvidal (Saturday 10pm from San Diego live on Showtime)

10. Lyle Lovett and His Acoustic Group (Thursday 7pm Rams Head Live); Bret Michaels (Wednesday 7pm & 10pm Rams Head on Stage); Pietasters (Friday 8pm 9:30 Club), Virginia Coalition (Saturday 8pm 9:30 Club); Devo (Thursday 8pm State Theatre), Phil Vassar (Sunday 8pm State Theatre); Chris Isaak (Monday 7:30pm Birchmere); Anthony Hamilton “Back to Love” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

I am not a Lyle Lovett fan, but I am a human being. Because I am a human being, I am ABSOLUTELY a fan of this tune. One of the happiest days in my life may have been the day I walked off a hangover into the DC Farmers’ Market and saw a folk band playing the song. If it hadn’t been in DC it would have been the HAPPIEST…

Is there any chance I could go see Bret Michaels and skip everything besides this?

I saw the Pietasters most recently at Artscape this summer. They were fantastic. They always are.

Virginia Coalition is ABSOLUTELY the best band you’re not listening to. Unless you’re not listening to U2. There aren’t people that don’t listen to U2, are there?

9. Glenn Clark’s Christmas Party (Saturday 8pm undisclosed location in Monkton); “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” & “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol out in theaters (Friday); Christian Finnegan (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv)

This is how last year’s Christmas party ended…

That’s my girlfriend cleaning up vomit. The vomit happened to be on the ceiling. It is what it is.

Oh…and last year’s party also involved the following….


Ours were of course much manlier than this, but you get the point. This is not to be missed…like…say…ever.

Caps win tonight establishes them as a serious Cup threat

Posted on 04 May 2009 by Nestor Aparicio

Part of the pain of being a lifelong fan of the Washington Capitals has been the “tease” factor and the dalliances with greatness. It’s a franchise that has had a long history of tragic, Game 7 losses in April and early May.

Tonight, with a rabid crowd and the greatest player on the planet registering a hat trick and a kid in goal who is playing electrifyingly exciting between the pipes, this team seems on the verge of doing some special things this May.

Despite a few retaliation penalties in the early going before righting their ship, the Caps played the part of a gritty, determined team — the kind that holds serve in their own rink and now must go to Pittsburgh with a chance to exterminate the Penguins in the Igloo on Wednesday and Friday.

No doubt the folks at the Verizon Center tonight will be telling people for years about the night that Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby both scored three goals and the Caps won 4-3 in the most exciting local sporting event of 2009. The building sounded like the roof was about to explode.

I went to the game on Saturday, which was a great event. But, tonight, I’m embarrassed that I missed out on the fun in person. That said, it was a pretty wild night just watching on TV. (I even got to watch the Orioles beat the Rays in between periods and the hockey game ended in the 8th inning, right on cue)

Sure, there’s a ton of hockey left to be played but these are the kinds of games and momentum builders that win championships. Simeon Varlamov clearly is unfazed — if not inspired — by the pressure of a sold out, singing crowd and the constant attack of the Penguins offense. And all of this comes after being woefully down 3-1 in the New York Rangers series and finding a way to come back and win.

The Caps are onto something good. It’s not a bad time to get on the bandwagon. There’s a lot of fun to be had watching the Caps this spring.

Hope to see you at Silver Spring Mining Company in Perry Hall on Wednesday night rocking your red. We promise $2 Michelob Ultras and plenty of noise in the room.

There’s nothing better than Stanley Cup hockey.

Nothing.

“Rock The Red” with WNST and Caps at Silver Spring Mining Company Monday night

Posted on 18 April 2009 by Nestor Aparicio

We attempted to put together some “Puck Bus” activities for the Capitals playoff games this past week but we just couldn’t acquire the tickets to pull it off. So, instead, we’re offering all Baltimore-area Caps fans a chance to come out and “Rock The Red” in unity on Monday at Silver Spring Mining Company in Perry Hall for Game 3.

Hopefully, a Caps victory today will tie the series and Alex Ovechkin and company will be going for a series lead on Monday.

We will also be having a group outing on Wednesday night at the Hunt Valley location of Silver Spring Mining Company for Game 4.

We will have Michelob Ultra specials for both events and hope you wear your red and come out and enjoy watching the Stanley Cup playoffs with other “Puckheads” as we “Rock The Red.”

As you may know, Silver Spring Mining Company is owned by former NHLer and Baltimore Skipjack, Gary Rissling, who still loves the sport and has made a life in Baltimore after his days playing in the AHL during the mid-1980’s.

Let’s make Silver Spring Mining Company a REAL hockey bar on Monday night in Perry Hall and Wednesday night in Hunt Valley.

Hope to see you there!
