Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has not endeared himself to many fans with his curious play-calling this season. According to one analyst, that dissatisfaction is being shared by people within the Ravens organization.

This week's episode of "The Walking Dead" was called "Secrets," but they could have also called it "Lying" because a bunch of characters tell a bunch of lies (or withhold information, which is a form of lying). Now, this should go without saying by this point, but if you haven't watched the episode yet, fair warning: There is about to be a Thanksgiving dinner of spoilers. Lori lies to Rick and everyone else about being pregnant and having a relationship with Shane. Rick lies about Hershel wanting everyone to get off his farm.

It was this past July, and Mark Sobel, a 51-year-old New Jersey orthopedic surgeon and former walk-on Maryland football player, was suffering through the unimaginably sad death of his 17-year-old son. Nearing the end of his life, Mark Sobel Jr. lay in Children's Hospital of Philadelphia with myocarditis, an infection of the heart.

"Our family has owned Brewers Island and the shoreside property for 25 years," said Gary Schoenemann, his hand on the rudder of the skiff.

There's a good chance your blues career is on the right track if, at 27, you can count Eric Clapton as a fan. Gary Clark Jr., the prodigious guitar player from Austin, Texas, even counts the six-string legend as a friend. Last June, Clapton picked Clark as the lone newcomer on his Crossroads Guitar Festival bill. His blazing performance in Chicago was the talk of the show and left many of the 20,000 in attendance wondering, "Who is this guy?" Listen to reviewers and they'll say Clark, who plays a sold-out show at the 8x10 on Friday, is the man capable of bringing blues back to the mainstream, thanks to his virtuosic ability and a genuine aura of cool that never appears manufactured.
