Denver-Baltimore Sports Talk Radio War Rages On Hours Before Kickoff
WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Last week a radio war erupted across rivaling sports cities’ airwaves over some oddly placed promotional banners promoting the Ravens-Broncos season-opening matchup in Denver.
This media feud was spurred on not only from a large Joe Flacco banner cascading from the Broncos’ Sports Authority Field, but also smaller, corresponding banners being hung from light poles around town in the city of Denver.
That led Denver sports personality Vic Lombardi taking to the streets to deface the marketing material, which led to this, an all-out radio war spread across frequencies in both cities, between Lombardi and WNST’s Glenn Clark in Baltimore.
With the two teams finally kicking off the 2013 NFL season Thursday night, and because Washingtonians possess such a strong affinity towards their neighbors to their north, here’s Lombardi saying Clark “doesn’t look like much of an athlete,” and he could handle him on a football field.
Lombardi joined 106.7 The Fan’s Lavar & Dukes on Thursday, and delivered the knockout blow.
“If you and [Clark] from Baltimore met on the fifty-yard line before the real game started, who would win,” Lavar Arrington asked Lombardi on Thursday.
“Oh man, I don’t think that guy looks like much of an athlete,” Lombardi said. “I don’t think that’s a problem, bro. At least I play sports recreationally. I’m good. I’m good there. Not a problem. Not an issue.”
Enjoy the rain delay.
