In what is generally considered a meaningless exercise, Steve McNair will experience something he has never faced in his decorated 12-year career. Tonight's preseason opener against the New York Giants at M&T Bank Stadium marks the first time McNair will play for a franchise other than Houston/Tennessee, as the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback makes his first - albeit brief - appearance for the Ravens. Preseason: Giants@Ravens Tonight, 8, Ch. 45, 97.9 FM

It is a line I have used to open speeches on the lecture circuit for years, and it never fails to get a laugh: "I'm happy to be here tonight from Washington, D.C., where the only politicians with convictions are in prison. "   That's only partially true. Democrats have convictions. They know what to do with power when they get it and how to isolate, even punish, any member of their party who dares to take a different position on an issue. Republicans seem to constantly react to the policies of Democrats or slam each other instead of making a case for the superiority of their ideas.

Even people whose visions of the holiday season owe more to Norman Mailer than to Norman Rockwell will admit - albeit grudgingly - to an iota of pleasurable anticipation as the holidays approach. Kitchen counters dusted with flour from baking, the snapping fresh scent of pine, the tang of wintry air on one's face: The images might be hackneyed but are evocative nonetheless. For those who continue to look for and/or work toward a little Currier and Ives (or an updated version thereof), we offer a few props to help set the stage for a memorable holiday season.

After seeing two unrelated stories in The Sun, I think I've discovered a way to use one problem to solve another. You ran a big article about the trouble police are having dealing with the Black Guerrilla Family ( on the same day you also ran a piece noting that the FAA has cleared the way for domestic use of unmanned drones ("FAA plan paves the way for drone use in U.S. by 2015," Nov. 8). So why not use the drones to clean up the BGF problem? Police say they have trouble building cases against BGF members because of witness intimidation and a strong culture of non-cooperation with police.

Westminster's Christmas tree was upright again yesterday - albeit a couple of feet shorter and with a decidedly nondecorative rope added. The 25-foot tree snapped at its base when high winds passed through town between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. Wednesday, said Thomas B. Beyard, Westminster's director of planning and public works. The tree toppled onto its side, despite its trunk being inserted into a sleeve in the ground at the small park on Locust Lane at East Main Street. "It's probably 23 feet now," Beyard said.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- When the calendar changed less than two weeks ago, so did the Maryland men's basketball team, and last night the Terps took yet another step toward proving they're peaking in March. Maryland continued to play some of its best basketball of the season - albeit against a struggling Georgia Tech team it had already beaten twice - with an 82-64 statement win in the first round of the ACC tournament at the Greensboro Coliseum. More inside ACC and Big East tournaments dance to different tunes.

As the wins kept mounting for Maryland during the past month, so did the injuries - albeit quietly - but the effects were visible in Saturday's 38-16 loss at Boston College. At least five players - including four starters - remain questionable heading into the most critical game of the season, against No. 20 Wake Forest on Saturday. Coach Ralph Friedgen yesterday said he's hoping he'll have offensive linemen Donnie Woods and Jared Gaither, who "have to continue to pass some tests."

In the wake of the stock market's latest frightening - albeit temporary - nose dive, now might be a good time to reflect on the true meaning of stocks. The following definitions, all listed by either Webster's or American Heritage dictionary, may help provide some insight: 1. A device consisting of a heavy timber frame with holes for confining the ankles and wrists, formerly used for punishment. 2. The broth in which meat, fish, bones or vegetables are simmered for a long period, used as a base in preparing soup, gravy or sauces.

It could not have been a more memorable proposal. A man took his girlfriend hiking Sunday afternoon on the gorgeous - albeit rocky and rough - Billy Goat Trail near Great Falls in Montgomery County. At some point, he popped the question. She said yes. As they continued their walk, the woman apparently slipped, fell down a rock face and was injured. Unable to easily reach her any other way, emergency responders had to use a U.S. Park Police helicopter to pluck her off the path. Authorities said the woman, who briefly lost consciousness, suffered bumps and bruises and injuries to her head and chest, but her injuries were not life-threatening.

It was raining Friday morning in Indianapolis, and open practices at the RCA Dome for the four teams at the men's Final Four were to begin in a little more than an hour. George Mason was to be first, and it's probably not an accident that it was going earliest, since it would be a shock to see any of the other teams get anywhere close to the overall media attention this weekend that George Mason will. It's also a strong possibility that there are more media following coach Jim Larranaga, the players and school officials this weekend than actual, real George Mason fans.

Let's start with this: Don't expect the Ravens to put up 60 points Sunday. Don't expect Joe Flacco to take endless shots downfield to Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones. Don't expect Anquan Boldin to suddenly run wild in the middle of the field off a lot of intricate rub routes. Don't expect a lot of razzle-dazzle plays involving Ray Rice. Or for the Ravens to march down up and down the field in the no-huddle offense as if they had they invented it. Bottom line? Don't expect this team to suddenly morph into The Greatest Show on Synthetic Fiber Turf.

Hours after his former Ravens teammates said they would welcome his return, wide receiver Derrick Mason shocked them by announcing he would sign with the New York Jets. Mason, 37, is the Ravens' all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards. The Ravens released him prior to camp to create $4.5 million in salary-cap room. "After a lot of very thoughtful and careful consideration, conversations with my family and prayer, I have decided to sign with the New York Jets," Mason said in a statement.

One contender for autumn box-office honors might break away from the field. With "Secretariat" (opening nationwide in October), director Randall Wallace has crafted a stirring, fact-inspired fable about the 1973 Triple Crown winner who was the greatest champ in horse-racing history. But Baltimore racing fans swept up in Secretariat's come-from-behind victory at the Kentucky Derby will get a surprise as Wallace guides the story into the Preakness. The director makes his most daring and unexpected move when the action shifts to Northwest Baltimore's Pimlico Race Course . Rather than lavish the same attention on re-creating Old Hilltop that he did on Churchill Downs, he shows the middle jewel of the Triple Crown entirely on television, as Secretariat owner Penny Chenery Tweedy's husband and four children follow the broadcast in their family room in Denver.

Losers of nine of their past 11, the Orioles were hoping to right the ship when they got home Wednesday from a difficult road trip. They didn't know they'd actually need an ark by the end of Wednesday night. Surviving three rain delays of two hours and 49 minutes, the Orioles beat the Minnesota Twins, 4-1, in a game that was finally, mercifully called with two outs and one Twin on in the top of the sixth. The game was delayed 42 minutes before the first pitch, 40 more minutes with one out in the bottom of the second and then again for an hour and 27 minutes with two strikes thrown in the top of the fourth and the Orioles leading 3-1. If it had ended then - which looked like a distinct possibility - the game would be postponed and started again Thursday afternoon with none of the statistics counting.

He might coach for the Washington Redskins, but not everything in Earnest Byner's home is bathed in burgundy and gold. A vase on the mantel commemorates Byner's induction into the Ravens' Ring of Honor. A leather jacket in his closet bears the Ravens crest. "It's all part of who I am," said Byner, who spent eight years in Baltimore as a player and executive before joining the Redskins in 2004 as an assistant coach. One of the NFL's premier running backs, Byner was near the end of his 14-season career when he played for the fledgling Ravens in 1996.

If you're able to ignore the baseball standings, it was about the best night you could imagine at the ballpark. Giant numbers were hanging on the warehouse again. Rabid fans filled the seats at Oriole Park again. The Orioles won a game again. And for a beleaguered and frustrated fan base, for three hours, there was something worth cheering again. More than 42,000 fans time-traveled, and it didn't really matter what year you chose because the memories were all worth savoring. The living, breathing timeline of better days was seated in folding chairs right there in the infield before last night's Orioles game.

At a time of the year when daylight becomes a rumor around 5 p.m. and the weather, this week notwithstanding, begs for warmer coats and extra layers of blankets on the bed, Franklin football coach Anthony Burgos really wanted to be outdoors this week. Burgos' desire to get out in the darkened chill was more symbolic than actual. To be out leading practice at this time of the year would mean the Indians would have won a couple of playoff games with another pending. "One of the things I said early in the season was, `I want to make sure that we practice Thanksgiving morning.
