Welcome to Episode 80 of the Charm City Bird Watch Podcast with Jake McDonnell and Nolan McGraw. Ian was unable to join us this week due to technical difficulties. We apologize for that!

The Charm City Bird Watch Podcast is brought to you by the Big Heads Media Podcast Network. Big Heads brings you several different podcasts ranging from sports, games, pop culture, comedy, and much more.

First up, Nolan and Jake revisit the Ravens 20-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers that was Baltimore’s franchise record eighth straight win (4:33 SoundCloud, 5:03 other). They’ll get into the Ravens facing some adversity for the first time in weeks, Harbaugh’s controversial in-game decisions and Justin Tucker coming through again.

As always, the guys share their nominations for Who’s Trending (21:19 SoundCloud, 21:49 other) and reveal some predictions for the Ravens Week 14 road test against the Buffalo Bills (27:27 SoundCloud, 27:57 other). It’s the perfect segue-way into our Weekly Ice Cream with the Enemy segment (34:52 SoundCloud, 35:22 other) with a second-time guest on the Charm City Bird Watch Podcast, JJ. It’s also the second week that a college friend of Jake’s has appeared on the program.

After JJ pays the ice cream tab, Nolan jumps back in to recap what was a solid weekend for Mark Turgeon”s Terps as the Maryland Men’s Basketball team won the Orlando Invitational (54:08 SoundCloud, 54:38 other). The CCCBW duo also call out the Orioles (1:05:33 SoundCloud, 1:04:03 other) for trading Jonathan Villar (Episode recorded hours before trade), shopping Dylan Bundy, and not making a respectable attempt to replace FanFest (see “Winter Warm-Up“).

As always, the end of the show ends with our weekly numbers segment where Jake quizzes Nolan to see if he can remember the best Baltimore Sports athletes who wore #80 (1:20:38 SoundCloud, 1:21:08 other).
