Allegany Radio Corporation Sports The beautiful thing about Fred McMillan was, is and always will be his insistence upon seeing the beautiful thing in you.

MIKE BURKE Allegany Radio Corporation Sports The Baltimore Ravens were pretty beat up before their first game, a gruesome 33-27 overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, was even played on Monday night, given the 11 players who were on the injured reserve, including the top three running backs on the roster, as well as […]

MIKE BURKE Allegany Radio Corporation Sports Sitting in the kitchen here drinking beer, eating Ledo pizza and watching the first #NFLTheTVShow presentation for the coming season. Ah, the glamorous life of the sports writer … I haven’t believed the NFL since I was in the fourth grade when the New York Jets won Super Bowl […]

MIKE BURKE Allegany Radio Corporation Sports It felt like the old days when college football was played almost exclusively on sunny Saturday afternoons in front of large enthusiastic crowds just happy to be there to root on their school or their favorite team.

MIKE BURKE Allegany Radio Corporation Sports If you’re a Maryland fan, it’s West Virginia week.

An article I had written about Fort Hill High School’s Ty Johnson receiving an offer to play football for the University of Maryland had appeared in that morning’s Cumberland Times-News.

MIKE BURKE Allegany Radio Corporation Sports It’s the greatest two weeks of the sports year – easily. It’s the U.S. Open, stupid. That’s what I did all day Monday, and that’s what I will do all day, every day for the next two weeks. Baseball gets a break – a much needed break, given the […]

MIKE BURKE Allegany Radio Corporation Sports Break up the Birds, right? You can’t stop the Baltimore Orioles. You can only hope to contain them. ‘Dem ‘O’s, hon, won their second straight game on Thursday, beating the Los Angeles Angels, 13-1, on a hot, steamy Chesapeake Bay afternoon in front of a sparse, but comfortable New […]

Baltimore professional sports has long been known for streaks – both good and bad.

It’s never been a secret that I have no personal rooting interest, not to mention any kind of interest, in the fortunes of the Washington Nationals. While it is appropriate for our nation’s capital to have a Major League baseball team, it is just as appropriate and fair to remember there were two very legitimate […]
