Stan The Fan Says Legacy Of Chris Davis And Family "Unassailable" In Baltimore

November 6, 2019
PressBox's chief grand poobah Stan "The Fan" Charles joined Glenn Clark Radio in studio Wednesday for another round of "Five Words Or Less."

The sports figures discussed this week were: 
-"Last Friday, he suggested on his Fox Sports 1 show that because of the the Ravens' tough and the Browns' softer schedules that Cleveland would overtake Baltimore atop the division within a month. As stupid as it was, something weird happened yesterday when he actually went on his same show and APOLOGIZED for the take, calling it his quote 'worst football take ever,' unquote," outspoken bloviator Colin Cowherd-G
-"We've been waiting for the right time to finally get around to using his name during Five Words or Less and beating the Seahawks and Patriots in back to back games seems to be the appropriate time. He's very much in the thick of the MVP conversation for his performance this season and has the Ravens primed to potentially have one of their best years ever," second year quarterback Lamar Jackson-S
-"After a report earlier in the week suggested that the league was exploring the possibility of the team moving to London and they were at least willing to listen, he came out yesterday and emphatically denied it-calling the report 'total effing BS.' I didn't say 'quote' because technically that's not actually what he said," Chargers owner Dean Spanos-G
-"A beloved figure in DC as a Nationals-lifer who helped them win the World Series, a number of Nats fans have been rather critical of him this week because while Kurt Suzuki's actions were more bizarre, he went out of his way to praise Donald Trump in comments at the White House-saying to the President quote 'we'd also like to thank you for keeping everyone here safe in our country and continuing to make America the greatest country to live in the world,' unquote," first baseman Ryan Zimmerman-S
-"The Ravens announced yesterday that they had signed veteran returner De'Anthony Thomas. And while it was Maurice Canady who was cut to make room for him, some fans couldn't help but wonder if it might have something to do with this man's fumble in the win over the Patriots, which allowed New England to get back into the game," Gilman alum Cyrus Jones-G
-"Admittedly, we're cheating a bit here as we had already used his name once this year so we're going to use his wife's name this time-but we're really talking about him. She and her husband Chris Davis announced this week a three million dollar donation to the University of Maryland Children's Hospital, which is obviously an incredible gesture. Orioles fans have felt conflicted because they recognize what a gesture it is, but know that they're said bad things about him and have booed him for his play on the field. Remember, we're really asking about HIM," but Jill Davis-S
-"Apparently his struggles against the Texans were enough to lose his job, as the Jaguars benched him in favor of veteran Nick Foles coming out of the bye," rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew-G
-"After just a three win season last year, he's guided his team to a 7-1 start this season, getting them to number 25 in both the AP and Coaches' polls a week ahead of their showdown at Notre Dame after their bye," Navy football coach Ken Niumatalolo-S
-"He was fired last week, setting in motion a chain of events that ultimately lead to every single contributor to Deadspin choosing to quit in response to their parent company's new 'stick to sports' edict-seemingly killing the once beloved site," former deputy editor Barry Petchesky-G
-"The Baseball Hall of Fame Modern Era Ballot was made public this week and includes former players Dwight Evans, Steve Garvey, Tommy John, Don Mattingly, Thurman Monson, Dale Murphy, Dave Parker, Ted Simmons and Lou Whitaker and perhaps most importantly this man who gets another shot at induction to Cooperstown," late former MLBPA executive director Marvin Miller-S
