THIS WAS THE ONE that got rid of all the frustration." So said then-Baltimore Colt Leonard Lyles to Sports Illustrated following the team's 34-0 annihilation of the Cleveland Browns in the 1968 NFL championship game. His words come to mind in light of the most recent watershed moment in Baltimore football -- the Ravens' stunning 39-36 comeback victory over its former biannual nemesis, the two-time defending division champion Jacksonville Jaguars.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Orioles returned home early Friday morning alone in first place atop the American League East, a half-game in front of the New York Yankees. They open a six-game homestand against the Houston Astros and Detroit Tigers on Friday night. They don't know when Matt Wieters will be back behind the plate as he rests his sore throwing elbow. And while they're cautiously optimistic about slugging first baseman Chris Davis's recovery from a strained oblique, he still must take a few steps before he returns to the starting lineup.

Senators of both parties decided that marriage conveys sufficient penalties without including taxes among them. Cong Ehrlich looked for the root cause of crime and found the appointment of Democrats as U.S. attorneys. Pity Bill. Imagine coming back jet-fatigued after foxing with Putin, to find the gang lurking for you at Camp David. Ospreys are back in Baltimore Harbor. Some birds of prey never left.

It was exactly one year ago today that Lee Mazzilli was fired as Orioles manager. "It doesn't seem that long," he said. He's not sorry to be gone. Trust me. I couldn't get Sidney Ponson's attention before the pre-game stretch, and I'm not sure he would have talked to me anyway. A New York television reporter asked Ponson if he had any special feelings being back in Baltimore. "None. Zero," he said. "I'm just happy to be on a winning team." roch.kubatko@baltsun.com For more "Roch Around the Clock," go to baltimoresun.

Baltimore city, of course, is facing a similar fiasco, a whopping $54 million budget gap for next year. But, in stark contrast to Howard, when Mayor Schmoke gave employees the choice of enduring layoffs or giving up their scheduled pay increases, there were, really, no options. Members of the City Union of Baltimore reluctantly deferred the 6 percent raise the union had won in bargaining only a year ago. The bitterness of the disappointment among city workers was as palpable as the frustration.

They've been roaring back into suddenly-hotter-again areas in recent months. Now they're a lot more common here, too -- in a milder way than during the bubble years, but surprising nonetheless. Online real estate brokerage Redfin says nearly half of its Baltimore-area buyers' offers in the first three months of the year had competition. Some buyers are using escalation clauses again to try to avoid being outbid.
