Glenn Clark Radio is a daily trip through the world of Baltimore sports. Glenn and Kyle Ottenheimer are discussing sports, not life and death matters. They approach it that way. Guests include some of the biggest newsmakers in the area and beyond.
It's Project GameDay's NFL Draft Special with your host Ken Zalis! Ke, Joe Serpico, and Paul Valle breakdown every pick of the draft, but especially the Ravens at no. 14! So sit back, crack your beverage of choice, and gear up for what's sure to be a wild night!
Drew Forrester (DrewsMorningDish.com) joined us in studio today-we had a slight hiccup but had much to discuss. Some old Super Bowl memories, the fight he and Paul Valle got into over Jordan Spieth, Would You Rather Wednesday (presented by Glory Days Grill) and much more. Near the bottom of Hour 1, Trey Mancini joined us to discuss some wonderful things he's done this offseason for healthcare workers plus why "normalcy" means something a little different for him, Cedric Mullins' own health battle and the changes to Camden Yards. And near the bottom of Hour 2, this week's "Simply The Bets" as Live! Casino Hotel Fanduel Sportsbook GM Bruce Bilek helped us with Super Bowl betting and VSiN's Aaron Oster gave us this week's "Five L's" of betting.
It's a #WouldYouRatherWednesday edition of GCR. Would you rather the Ravens make the AFC Championship Game and travel to Buffalo or make the AFC Championship Game and travel to New England? We discussed that and much more on today's show. In Hour 1, Drew Forrester (DrewsMorningDish.com) checked in to discuss the USMNT's draw with Jamaica last night in World Cup Qualifying plus some Ravens and more. Early in Hour 2, Brian Billick joined us to discuss how the Ravens can avoid being exploited by cover zero moving forward. At the bottom of Hour 2, we listened to Segment 1 of last night's Tyus Bowser Show with special guest Chuck Clark from Mother's North in Timonium. And we wrapped with quite the silly #FinishThis, which featured a remarkable gaffe from Paul Valle.
The Ravens won. Well really, they WON. I mean, holy crap, who saw that coming like that? We discussed it in depth today, the first day of the Paul Valle era here on GCR. At the bottom of Hour 1, we re-capped a fruitful week of Picks (at least for Glenn) and then dished out our #PatsOnTheAss for the Ravens' dominant performance against the Chargers. In Hour 2, we caught up with ESPN Radio's Ian Fitzsimmons after he worked the sidelines for the Baltimore/Los Angeles matchup and then our weekly chat with 105.7 The Fan's Jeremy Conn covered the Ravens' win, betting misfortune and the start of NBA season.
Glenn does ANYTHING...as long as Cal Ripken tells him to. We talked about it at the top of today's show. He's also struggling to get into this year's MLB Playoffs. He explained, then Paul Valle III (the host of "The Bataround") joined us to discuss that and the totality of the season for the Orioles. At the top of Hour 2, legendary former Steelers running back Rocky Bleier joined us to discuss the Ravens tying their 100 yard rushing game "record." How much did it mean to him? Does is bother him that the Ravens did what they did to match the record? After that, we played a little #WouldYouRatherWednesday-would you rather the Ravens trade a sixth round pick for Marlon Mack or a third round pick for James Robinson? And we wrapped the show by making a significant announcement about the future of the show.
On this Friday Glenn Clark Radio, Paul Valle and Kyle Ottenheimer talk Ravens, Orioles, and more. At 10:20, Baseball America executive editor JJ Cooper joins us to talk about the Orioles draft class and help us make sense of their bonus pool disbursement. At 11, Aberdeen Ironbirds outfielder and top Orioles prospect Hudson Haskin joins the show to talk about his recent promotion and overall solid performance throughout 2021. At 11:30, Baltimore Sun Ravens beat writer Jonas Shaffer discusses his outlook of the team entering training camp.
On this Monday Glenn Clark Radio, Ken Zalis and Kyle Ottenheimer discuss the Orioles and more. At 10:40, Sam Houston State head baseball coach Jay Sirianni calls in to discuss Orioles No. 5 overall pick Colton Cowser‘s ascent from a high school prospect with only one collegiate offer to an eventual top five pick in the MLB Draft. At 11:20, host of The Bat Around Paul Valle joins the show give his thoughts on the Cowser selection and what he hopes the Orioles do with their remaining bonus pool money.
We're back. Well, one of us is. Paul Valle III from "The Bataround" is in for Kyle today with much to discuss, including the Naomi Osaka situation, Maryland's heartbreaking loss to Virginia in the NCAA title game and, yeah, 14 straight losses. Yeesh. Are we getting closer to a point where even if we accept that this is a rebuild and the team isn't very good that Brandon Hyde's job should be at risk? We discussed that throughout the show. Early in Hour 2, former major leaguer Xavier Scruggs joined us to discuss that after he called the Orioles' loss for ESPN yesterday. At the bottom of Hour 2, 105.7 The Fan's Jeremy Conn checked in to discuss the Orioles, betting, Jackass and more.
Yes, the Orioles are bad. But they were going to be bad! That was kinda baked in to all of this. So what are we ACTUALLY disappointed by, exactly? We spent a lot of today's show talking about that. Late in Hour 1, former Falcons QB turned podcaster (and SEC Network analyst) D.J. Shockley joined us to discuss why he thinks the Baltimore Ravens are such a unique fit for Julio Jones and make so much sense for a trade. Early in Hour 2, we caught back up with PressBox's chief grand poobah Stan "The Fan" Charles to discuss the Orioles' situation and the futures of Trey Mancini and John Means. And our pal Paul Valle III-the host of "The Bataround" checked in later in Hour 2 to discuss the Orioles' plight as well.
Our buddy Paul Valle from "The Bataround" has joined us in studio at the start of today's show to discuss the Orioles, where they are within the rebound, tanking and more. At the bottom of Hour 1, Washington Post columnist/author John Feinstein joined us for a lengthy chat about Mark Turgeon-why he does not believe Maryland should fire him but isn't sure they should commit to a long-term extension yet either. Early in Hour 2, our friend Ross Grimsley checked in to discuss why he's so opposed to "tanking" in baseball. Then-if you were wealthy, what types of people would you hire to work for you? Michael Jordan has an interesting figure on staff. At the bottom of Hour 2, UMBC soccer coach Pete Caringi checked in after getting his 300th career win earlier this week. Plus, Russ to Chicago? Have analytics ruined fast breaks? Vaccines and more...
Obviously a huge day...it's #WouldYouRatherWednesday. Was there something else? Would you rather a rich relative bet your inheritance on the Ravens making a deeper run in the playoffs or on the Steelers making a deeper run in the playoffs? The Ravens did nothing at the deadline but that was probably to be expected after the Yannick Ngakoue deal. "The Bataround" host Paul Valle III joined us for today's show in studio. Early in Hour 2, Gambling.com's Bill Ordine checked in to discuss the impact of Maryland voters approving sports betting-when will we actually see legal sports betting in the state? And late in Hour 2, Maryland running back Jake Funk (Damascus) joined us after going off for 200 yards in their win over Minnesota Friday night.
Our friend Paul Valle-the new host of "The Bataround" Saturday mornings on PressBox Radio-was in for Kyle today to talk about ANOTHER Orioles' loss to the Yankees, speaking of which-it's been so long since the Orioles beat the Yankees that the last time they did, I was __________. We also discussed more bad news for MLB on the COVID front regarding the Cardinals. Midway through Hour 1, Drew Forrester (DrewsMorningDish.com) checked in for this week's Andrew Stetka Quiz-trying to add to his three quiz lead. In Hour 2 we discussed the absurd concept that sports reporters are "rooting" for coronavirus to cancel sports and we wrapped the show by continuing to remember the life of Mo Gaba with former Orioles manager Buck Showalter.
