Getting the Band Back Together

If you happen to be near a radio tonight from around 10:30 until midnight, I humbly suggest you tune to WBAL (1090 AM) to hear me and the Unger brothers do some radio. Just like back in the Fighting Ungers days only much later at night and on a much stronger signal than ever before. […]

What the H? Sports Show is Actually Good.

Ed. note: this is the latest in a series of posts from new semi-regular contributor The Baltimore Chop. I’ve been watching Sports Show lately. That’s a surprising enough statement in its own right, but the thing that’s really kind of shocking is that the show is actually funny. Comedy Central’s latest attempt to mix jocks […]

Flanagan Reemerges. I Have Advice.

Mike Flanagan is an odd case. Even in baseball, a world filled with oddball lifers, his trajectory stands out. Try to name another guy who went from Hall of Fame Cy Young pitcher to coach to broadcaster to General Manager to “is he still with the team?” then back to broadcasting again. I could be […]

Radio Alert: Saturday 9(ish)-Noon

Quick note to mention that I’ll be on the radio Saturday morning with the Fighting Ungers from around 9 until noon. Expect a fair amount of Orioles spring training talk, along with the show’s usual dose of comedy and oddity. Hit up 1370 AM on your radio dial or go to fox1370.com to listen to […]

The Tiresome Hate of Everything

I came across a column last week that has to be shared. While not explicitly sports-related it is nonetheless entirely relevant. In Why are you so terribly disappointing?, San Francisco Chronicle writer Mark Morford barrels head-first into an issue that sometimes keeps me up at night. To wit: our wonderful and burgeoning New Media conversation […]

Anita Marks Out at 105.7

Somewhat surprising local media news: Anita Marks and 105.7 The Fan are parting ways. According to the article, the two sides couldn’t come to a contract agreement. She’ll now take a month off to review her options. I think it’s safe to say that most Baltimore sports fans won’t exactly be sad to see her […]

Orioles, Red Sox, Colts Band, Radio

The deeper we get into September, the harder it is to say anything about these games against the Red Sox. No point in getting all Don Quixote about how much I hate the fact that their fans invade Camden Yards — even I find it tough to muster that argument this late in the season. […]

Orioles in Chicago For Three

First thing’s first: tune the hell in to the Fighting Ungers radio program tomorrow morning from 9-12. I’ll be on, and I’ll even be sitting at the main mic. If you listened the last time I did that, you know it will be…interesting. 1370 AM or listen online here. *** The second half of the […]
