When Long moved back to Baltimore he started on a new career path. He became of fan of a local sports talk station and was a regular caller known as “Rob from Woodlawn”
which eventually led to an opportunity as a part-time producer in radio in 2003.

The Baltimore Ravens just finished a season that none of us saw coming. Not only did they not make the play-offs, fans saw, for the first time since 2008, a team line-up without quarterback Joe Flacco.
When Britton took over as the closer for the team there was talk that he still wanted to be a starter but maybe we’re witnessing the makings of one of the game’s top finishers.
About a month ago, as you walked through the Baltimore Orioles clubhouse, it just seemed that something wasn’t right. No, there wasn’t descension or anything but something was “off” a little.
There’s an old saying in sports that “Good teams find ways to win and bad teams find ways to lose.”
The Baltimore Orioles are regarded as one of, if not the best defensive teams in Major League Baseball. At least that was the case before the 2015 season.
Rob was impressed not only with Ed’s play on the field but the person he was off it.
Today, I’m torn. I still remember the guy who impressed me with his raw athletic skills but I’m hearing the doubters in my head about his weaknesses.
This is unprecedented. Never before in Major League Baseball history has they been a game when the fans were shut out.
Opening Day is Rob’s favorite time of the year. It’s Christmas and New Years rolled into one.
The excitement of Opening Day began for me way back in my childhood. Since then, it’s had a holiday feel for me.
If you watched the Maryland Terps lose to the West Virginia Mountaineers on Sunday night you clearly noticed the glaring weakness for Mark Turgeon’s team.
It never fails. March Madness is the best time of the year to be wrong.
