As we here at B-more Opinionated get ready for the Ravens' big game in London, we've been listening to British Invasion music, watching Monty Python, catching up on some Premier League... and talking to the highest authorities of NFL's International efforts!
We're joined by Mark Waller, Executive Vice President of NFL International, to discuss the Ravens' contingent of fans in the U.K., the NFL's increasing efforts in Europe, England's reception of the sport, and even her majesty The Queen's take on the game.
Jason and Jerry also talk the Ravens' impressive 2-0 start, the O's not-so-impressive performance, and more!
As always we have Jerry's (pawned off) homework, Jason's Angry Married Guy Rant (a redux), and our picks of the week. Don't miss it!
We are officially back in the swing of things with football season in full effect!
Jason La Canfora and Jerry Coleman give a full postmortem on the Ravens impressive 20-0 shutout in Cincinnati, talking dominating defense and a cautious Joe Flacco. Then, we look ahead for the team's Week 2 home opener against the Browns.
Meanwhile, Orioles baseball is still drudging along and Jason has another loud and clear message for our beloved directionless birds.
DJ Durkin then joins the show to talk the University of Maryland's phenomenal start to the season, recruiting, and more!
As always we have Jerry's homework, Jason's married guy rant, and more!
Muggsy Bogues joins the pod ahead of ESPN's 30 for 30 special, "The Boys of Baltimore." The diminutive giant of Baltimore basketball talks the unprecedented and one-in-a-million story of the 1981-1983 Dunbar High School team that would not be stopped.
We also talk an encouraging week at Camden Yards ahead of the O's trip out west, the Ravens' growing infirmary, and catch up with journeyman Tight End Phillip Supernaw whose life was a revolving door at The Castle in Owings Mills before finding his footing with the Tennesee Titans.
Plus we have our Minor Leaguers of the Week, Jerry's homework, Jason's married guy rant, and more!
With the news of the NFL rolling back punishment for excessive celebrations after touchdowns, we at the BMO Show felt it was only appropriate that we brought on one of the biggest experts on the NFL's hypocrisy: Chad Johnson.
Ochocinco goes into detail with Jason and Jerry about his unique relationships with Roger Goodell, Marvin Lewis, and other memories from his playing days against the Ravens.
We also check in on the sputtering Orioles as Baltimore looks to recover from a bad case of Ubaldo.
As always, we also get into Jerry's homework assignment, Jason's married guy rant and Minor Leaguer of the week, plus much more!
On the other side of the 2017 NFL Draft, Jerry and Jason are back to discuss everything about the Ravens' selections. The guys spar over the Ravens mentality and their decision to forego offensive weapons in the draft (3:00) before we welcome in the team's Assistant General Manager, Eric DeCosta (14:00). Eric and Jason go pick by pick for the birds, and discuss some of the tough decisions the team faced throughout the draft including O.J. Howard, Ryan Anderson, and others! Plus get the lowdown on how the team sought after Marlon Humphrey, Tim Williams, and the rest of the 2016 draft class.
We're also talking Orioles, Adam Jones and the indefensible Red Sox fans (38:00); Jason's married guy rant, Coleman's homework... And last but certainly not least, learn the degrees of separation between Uncle Jerry and supermodel legend Elle Macpherson (I guarantee it's less than you think). It's a packed show on this week's episode of BMore Opinionated!
Jason and Jerry are back to discuss a big week in Baltimore sports. First, we gear up for this week's NFL Draft -- going over every possible Ravens option in the first rounds one more time, and then cover the rest of the division's draft forecast.
The guys also touch on Manny Machado's dust up with Dustin Pedroia and the Red Sox, another week in O's action, plus Jason's latest trip down to the farm to check in on a rehabbing Chris Tillman.
And saving the best for last, the one and only Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports joins the show to talk Orioles' front office, the looming Manny decision, dealing with O's fans, and if the birds' bubble may be bursting.
Tune in for much more including Jerry's homework, Jason's married guy rant, and a check-in on our old friend Jhon Peluffo! Don't miss it.
