When we started this site, the scary world of blogging was just too intimidating to jump into headfirst, so I wanted to keep a bit of anonymity to my posts. Well, with Andy Ratner’s feature on BMoreBirdsNest.com in today’s Baltimore Sun, all anonymity has been tossed to the wayside. When Andy first approached me for an interview (with photos!?), I was a bit hesitant for that reason alone, but decided it was too cool to pass up.
And so, you now can all see who I (NestMinder) be.
This is the NestMinder. I was born in B’More, then grew up in, and currently live in, this fine town. I attended this institution. I’ve been told many a time that I look like this guy. Along with my fierce love for the Ravens and my constantly strained relationship with the Orioles, I am also a huge fan of this, this place, and these guys, and I am a Dad to one of these.
I don’t do all this shiz alone though. Nick-a-What!?, as he has been known, takes care of the technical aspects of the Nest, including that ever-changing banner you see up there, the Photoshop wizardry, and makin sure the search engines can find us. I’ll let him tell you a bit more about himself.
As I, Nick-A-What!?, take the reins here, I feel that I should tell you that I am every bit the sports nut as Nestminder… juuuussst without the dramatic punching the hole in the wall thing. I have been known to throw a cat or two though. I grew up here and moved to Columbia, MD after graduating from the very same fine University as Nestminder. I used to be in a band with the lead singer of this band (before they started touring the world..whoops) when we lived in Fells Point. I’m also a huge fan of this, this and this.
So, that’s us. Thanks for reading!
