Jerry and Jason open the show discussing the latest Ravens’ draft possibilities (3:10), and debate Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones’ latest run-in with the media (10:15). The guys then move on to talk about the week’s Orioles-related news before being joined by the Iron Man himself, Cal Ripken Jr. (31:00). Cal discusses 25 years of Camden Yards, the current state of the O’s, and even the resting of NBA players. Also in this episode: Jerry completes(!) his homework for the week, Jason’s married guy rant, and more!
Jason and Jerry digest the first week of Orioles action before talking Ravens’ draft plans ahead of the upcoming draft. Could the Ravens be setting up a smokescreen by specifically naming WR’s Mike Williams and John Ross? Jason La Canfora thinks the Ravens could find a different 1st Round pass-catcher. Homework, Married Guy Rant, and much more! Crack a couple Natty Boh’s hon and enjoy this abbreviated edition of Bmore Opinionated.
Camden Yards got one hell of a celebration for turning 25 this year and opening day was as exciting as any O’s fan could have asked for. Senior VP of Planning and Development for the LA Dodgers, Janet Marie Smith, was one of the minds behind the design and construction of our beloved ball park so the guys call her up to get the best history lesson of the stadium available.
Baseball is on Bmore’s mind so the guys play GM\Manager. They even put a wager on a certain roster move that begins being paid out during this episode. Follow @bmoshowpod to find out what the deal is. Jason brings the latest from the NFL owner’s meetings, including a little hangout with Coach Harbs, and the guys call up Will Likely to talk about the draft.
You never get a better perspective on a team’s locker room than from a guy who just left it. The All Pro fullback, Kyle HugeCheck, gives you his take on what it’s like being a Raven. Plus O’s, Terps, and you know.
The newest Raven, Tony Jefferson, was in town for a press conference and got a little more than he bargained for with the semi snow storm… We’re going to go ahead and blame that storm for stealing some of the quality of the conversation but you still get to know the safety better before he dons the purple and black. The main attraction this week: Coleman finally completed his Orioles related homework.
Free agency is moving fast so the guys needed to get Bmore their update at the right time. Who has all the latest news and rumors? Bmoreopinionated’s own, JLC.
The O’s are actually playing games… kind of… So Jerry trekked to Sarasota to catch up with the team, including Jason’s favorite member of the organization. The Florida trip also hooked the podcast up with an Oriole legend with some unbelievable stories about his time with the club, Don Stanhouse.
The guys have been talking about this ever since their trip to the Warehouse… John Angelos makes his second appearance and he delivers his unique perspective on his team, the world of baseball, and well…the world. The Executive Vice President of the Orioles is always very generous with his time on the pod, so the guys get all of the usual business out of the way first then dive deep with John.
The former All Star shooting guard for the Baltimore Bullets and current Wizards broadcaster breaks down the Wiz’s season like few can. He also gets historical about the days of the franchise being in Baltimore and his life in the city. The guys would never leave out Bmore’s two true organizations, and really focus on their offseason.
