I am so angry right now, I should get a two-game suspension. The National Football League and the Baltimore Ravens have sacrificed running back Ray Rice on the altar of their public image. His firing was cynical and expedient and has absolutely nothing to do with domestic abuse. As soon as video from inside the casino elevator was made public - confirming what we already knew from the police report, that Rice hit his then-fiancee hard enough to knock her unconscious - the team terminated his contract.

Sean Haire, known as Sean O'Haire in WCW and WWE, reportedly died Monday at age 43. Haire debuted in WCW in 2000, and he was immediately pushed as a future star. He was paired with the Natural Born Thrillers, a group of young, physically gifted wrestlers, and in the year before WCW folded, he won the tag team titles three times. Haire quickly gained attention from fans for both his strength and athleticism. For a wrestler who was billed at 6 feet 6 and 270 pounds, he could move like a cruiserweight, and hit what might be the best-looking Swanton Bomb in the history of the business.

In an emotional message, the wife of former Ravens running back Ray Rice broke her silence Tuesday morning, one day after Rice's contract was terminated and he was indefinitely suspended by the NFL. Those events followed a graphic video surfacing in which Rice punched his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, whom he later married and now has his last name. The couple has been in counseling since the incident in February, which occurred at Revel Casino, which has since closed, in Atlantic City, N.J. The Baltimore Sun has verified that the following unabridged message from her official Instagram account is from Janay Rice and was intended to be released publicly: "I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend," Janay Rice wrote.

The tall ships - old showboats that they are - danced into Baltimore looking regal and festooned, the stateliest of guests at an affair expected to bring President Barack Obama to Baltimore. "It's a ballet, with a couple hard-rock pieces in the middle," said Mike McGeady, president of Sail Baltimore, of the intense maritime choreography used to welcome dozens of Star-Spangled Spectacular ships into the waters around Baltimore on Wednesday without disrupting commercial port trade.

A winter forecast map that is going viral and suggests above-normal snowfall for most of the country -- and "well above-normal" snow for the mid-Atlantic and New England -- comes from a satire website. The story has been shared widely across social media, carrying the headline "Meteorologists Predict Record-Shattering Snowfall Coming Soon. " The accompanying map forecasts an unusually snowy winter for about two-thirds of the country, and a corridor of even heavier snow from Virginia to Maine.

The Baltimore Ravens said Tuesday that the team gave up its investigation into the Ray Rice assault incident after just a few weeks, while the National Football League explained its own fruitless efforts to obtain the surveillance video of the player punching his then-fiancee. Both organizations faced mounting criticism after release of the video by celebrity news website TMZ prompted both to impose stiffer penalties against Rice on Monday. The 27-year-old running back was set to rejoin the team following a two-game suspension, but was instead cut from the roster and suspended indefinitely from the league.

For six straight hours for four straight afternoons during one of the largest ship-hosting events in Baltimore history, all water traffic within a large rectangle in the middle of the harbor is being completely restricted by a cadre of law enforcement agencies. No tall ships, no personal watercraft, no dinghys. Period. Only the icebreaker A.V. Sandusky of the Maryland Natural Resources Police and the Coast Guard cutter James Rankin are allowed in the so-called box, and even they are not allowed to move.

  Ravens running back Ray Rice has been accepted into a diversionary program that could allow him to clear his record of charges that he knocked his then-fiancee unconscious in a New Jersey casino, but he could still face discipline from the NFL.   Rice, 27, earlier this month pleaded not guilty to one count of third-degree aggravated assault and instead sought entry into a pre-trial intervention program for first-time offenders....

Calling the Ray Rice video that broke Monday on TMZ "one of the biggest stories" it has ever done in terms of traffic, a website executive said today there are more revelations to come. "The stuff that's out there has kind of opened the door to a whole bunch of other story points such as what's going on with the NFL," Evan Rosenblum, executive producer for TMZ and TMZ Sports, said in a telephone interview.
