Today, Goob joined Thyrl Nelson for a great interview about his winning the 2010 Ultimate Displaced Fan contest from DirecTV.  Thryl really gave Goob (and by extention, The Nest) some great air time, so please take the time to listen to both segments below (total about 13 minutes). Goob with Thyrl Nelson, Part 1 Goob [...]

Sure, we’re just six days away from Super Bowl XLV, but seeing as how “the team that shall not be named” is participating, we have much bigger priorities around here this week. First off, on Satuday our own Goob Theoharris is taking part in the DirecTV Celebrity Beach Bowl. He’ll need to be in top [...]

My buddy Glenn Clark of WNST posted this dramatic reenactment of the Steelers’ 3rd-and-19 conversion that led directly to their win over the Ravens in the Divisional round of this year’s NFL playoffs. Because we have to laugh, or else we’ll cry.

Once again – unfortunately a few weeks earlier than we would have preferred – it’s Draft Season here at the Nest. First, our usual disclaimer: Admittedly, we take a very unscientific approach to our mock drafts. I’m the first to admit that the true draft geeks amongst you, dear readers, would probably be better served [...]

Over the weekend, the Ravens agreed to terms with kicker Billy Cundiff for a new contract, the value of which is reported to be 5 years and $15 million. Cundiff, who tied the modern NFL record with 40 touchbacks, will be planting kickoffs into the end zone for years to come. Let’s hope that 2010 [...]

Yesterday evening, Goob was on WBAL 1090 in Baltimore with Shari Elliker, for the first of what will be MANY radio spots discussing his DirecTV Ultimate Displaced Fan victory. Listen in with the link below: Goob on WBAL

Last month, we posted Goob’s entry into DirecTV’s “Ultimate Displaced Fan” Contest, and begged for your votes. Well, apparently you guys came through, because out of the more than 3000 entries into the contest, Goob’s was chosen from among the finalists as the GRAND PRIZE WINNER! That’s right, our very own Goob Theoharris is DirecTV’s [...]

After the Ravens’ lack of offensive weapons were again woefully exposed in the Playoffs in a 20-3 loss in Indianapolis in January 2010, Ozzie Newsome had seen enough. He went out and traded with the Arizona Cardinals to acquire wide receiver Anquan Boldin. Boldin was expected to be the missing piece to the Ravens’ passing [...]

In a somewhat surprising – but nonetheless very welcome – move, Ravens’ defensive coordinator Greg Mattison decided this evening to leave Baltimore to join the Michigan Wolverines to take the same position. While I believe Mattison was the recipient of some slightly unfair criticism during his two years as mastermind of the Ravens’ defense – [...]

And it’s not, as many Ravens fans will argue, because he is “too conservative.” As a matter of fact, the Pittsburgh Steelers have came out and said that the reason they were able to so easily and effectively harass Joe Flacco and the Ravens’ offense in the second half Saturday was because they knew all [...]
