The Nest is now on Twitter.  Better late than never. https://twitter.com/BMoreBirdsNest

In the words of the immortal Rex Barney, “Give that fan, a contract.” The Ravens front office treated Michael Oher yesterday as if he had just deftly snagged a foul ball back at Memorial Stadium, inking him to a fresh 5-year deal. With that, the Ravens have now signed all of their rookies. The 6’4″ [...]

The cavalry is coming, here, O’s fans. We’ve been reciting this mantra to ourselves for nearly 2 years now (sometimes creepily repeating it over and over with our knees tucked to our chests, rocking back and forth, while Rich Hill does his best Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn impressions – what, that’s just me?  Liars), and [...]

Want to see the Ravens take on the Washington Redskins on August 13?  B’More Birds’ Nest, along with sponsor Ravens’ Roost 65 are happy to give you the chance! We’ll be holding a raffle on Sunday, August 9, for 2 tickets to the game.  To get your raffle tickets, and chance to win, send an [...]

The O’s got ya down again this summer, hon? Well, fear not, B’More.  Ravens’ training camp is but a few short days away, and Ray-Ray, Eddie, Sizzle, and Pain Train McClain are ready to help us avert our eyes from the painful sight that is the orange and black. In case you needed a primer [...]

(Yes, I know the Ravens can’t “work out” those guys, since they are already on rosters.  Shut up.) With Derrick Mason still “unofficially” (as far as we know, he still hasn’t filed papers with the league) retired, the Ravens are scrambling to bolster their receiving corps.  They announced that they will hold another WR tryout [...]

From Pro Football Talk: In a complaint that reads like the rape allegations made several years ago against NBA star Kobe Bryant, Harrah’s employee Andrea McNulty alleges sexual assault against Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in a lawsuit filed last week in Washoe County, Nevada. In the civil suit, which Cornwell confirms was served on Roethlisberger [...]

Some good news after the other day’s terrible (but still suspicious) news of Derrick Mason’s retirement.  Via my WNST text message: Ravens and Terrell Suggs agree to a 6-yr, $63M contract per many web reports.  I’ve yet to locate said “web reports,” but I promise to get right on that and report back. Update:  Hell, [...]

Crap. Derrick Mason just announced his retirement from the NFL. My expectations for 2009 just took a pretty significant hit.  And my anti-Brandon Marshall-ness may be in the process of doing a 180. More to come, but I need to go grieve for a while…

I’m guessing your Independence Day weekend was very similar to mine in more than one way, Nestgoers. Like me, you probably watched Joey Chestnut defend his World Hot Dog Eating title against former Champ Kobayashi, and a host of others.  Like me, it probably made you want a hot dog.  Or, like my girlfriend, perhaps [...]
