There are many obstacles along the path to becoming a ninja warrior. One must dash up the steps, slanted at 50 degrees, to reach the platform above, or perhaps run along the 14-foot curved wall - all without falling into the pool of water below. "If your foot skims the water, you're done," said 30-year-old Tony Torres. Torres, will be one of hundreds trying to land a spot on the TV show "American Ninja Warrior," which holds tryouts Friday and Saturday at Rash Field in the Inner Harbor.

At the Towson University football team's home opener late last month, the loudest cheers arguably came for the smallest athlete on the field. With the current Towson gymnastics team by her side, 24-year-old alumna Kacy Catanzaro stood in the endzone and waved to the roughly 8,000 fans in attendance. "Let's go, Kacy! Let's go, Kacy!" the student section began to chant as Catanzaro — dressed in a black top, denim shorts and boots pulled up to her knees — flashed her megawatt smile.

She stands just five-feet tall and weighs less than some pumpkins, but that didn't stop Kacy Catanzaro from dominating last night's episode of "American Ninja Warrior. " A Towson University grad, Catanzaro became the first woman to complete one of the final obstacle courses and advance to the show's ultimate challenge, Mt. Midoriyama. Catanzaro, who is apparently 95 percent muscle and 5 percent beaming smile, used skills she honed on Towson's gymnastics team to tackle obstacles such as the salmon climb, the swinging frames, the spider climb, and other feats rarely seen outside of a Spider-Man film.

For many "American Ninja Warrior" competitors, the warped wall is an insurmountable challenge. But Kacy Catanzaro is not one of those warriors. On Monday's episode of NBC's reality extreme challenge show, Catanzaro, a former Towson University gymnast, became the first female in the show's history to scale the warped wall, moving on to the next round of competition. Catanzaro, who also competed on the show last year, repeatedly jumped up and down in sheer elation after she got to the top of the wall during the qualifying round.  The Towson community was quick to tweet its support.

On a hot day in May in a patch of grass near power lines in Odenton, Jared Conover and Ryan Smith are hard at work building a wooden frame that will soon be used in their new obstacle course. Insects buzz and a neighbor's chickens squawk in a nearby pen as the two men picture the frantic, grueling scene when the obstacles they're hammering, drilling and screwing together in this rural setting are put to use. "This one is a rope and chain traverse. This will be up 10 feet in the air, with cross beams and ropes hanging," Smith says.

The following takes place between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m. The president is dead. Blown to bits by a US drone strike … by an anti-drone activist/terrorist. As the U.S. and UK officials watch on TV, we cut over to CIA London Station where Agent Morgan confirms Heller's planned surrender to Al-Harazzi so she would destroy the rest of the drones in her control. Cut to camp Al-Harazzi who celebrates their win over the murderous, drone-using Americans … whose President she just killed with a drone strike …. only to find out the video feed used for visual confirmation is on a loop, like the camera footage in Keanu Reaves uses to trick Dennis Hopper in “Speed.” And bad guys HATE bait and switch gimmicks when it comes to a hostage situation.
