It’s finally here! After a long off season and a grueling preseason / training camp, the Baltimore Ravens will be getting their 2019 campaign underway this weekend. To celebrate the return of football we gave our reactions to the Ravens final 53 man roster before turning our attention forward (2:25 SoundCloud, 2:55 other). All three of us gave our picks for offense and defense MVP as well as some record predictions (31:30 SoundCloud, 32:00 other).

In addition to our own week 1 preview we are happy to present a new segment called “Ice Cream With The Enemy.” Each week we will welcome on a guest who covers the Ravens upcoming opponent to discus the matchup and get some insight directly from the enemy (46:05 SoundCloud, 46:35 other). This week we kicked things off with Matthew Cannata from Phinsider Radio.

The Ravens may be commanding the most attention right now but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything going on in Birdland. The Orioles made a handful of September call-ups in the past few days including Mark Trumbo, who made his first major league appearance since suffering an injury last August (1:01:25 SoundCloud, 1:01:55 other).

As always, we end the program with the weekly numbers segment (1:15:15 SoundCloud, 1:15:45 other) where Jake quizzes Nolan and Ian to see if they can guess the names of the best Baltimore sports athletes who wore #67.
