A regional Pennsylvania bank submitted the highest bid at the auction for Baltimore's 1st Mariner Bank in a deal that must still be approved by a federal bankruptcy court judge and banking regulators. National Penn Bank offered $19.1 million for 1st Mariner at Thursday's auction, topping a competing bid from a group with local ties led by New York-based Priam Capital LLC, according to a filing in the bankruptcy of bank parent First Mariner Bancorp. A hearing is scheduled for Monday in Baltimore's U.S. Bankruptcy Court for a judge to rule on the outcome of the auction after hearing any potential objections from creditors of First Mariner.

Several receiving options remain available on the free-agent market and one big name, the Carolina Panthers' Steve Smith, could become available soon. There are a number of veteran offensive linemen who are still unsigned, while the market at safety and middle linebacker - two positions of need for the Ravens - continues to thin out. However, in Day 2 of free agency, the Ravens focused on taking care of their own. After officially signing Eugene Monroe and declaring him their left tackle “for many years to come,” the Ravens struck a four-year deal with Jacoby Jones, keeping one of the heroes of the team's run to the Super Bowl XLVII title in the organization.

If you're a book-lover and football-lover (there really are a few of us out there), you've gotta love Stevie Baggs of the Baltimore Ravens. The Bethune-Cookman University grad is nicknamed "Shakespeare," because he's known for making plays. For the uninitiated, that means he does some eye-opening work on the field. A little bit of football humor, but not bad for a sport known more for head-banging than than for the bon mot. It's fitting that Baggs plays for the Ravens, which has its own rich literary heritage.

Rapper, producer and actor Dr. Dre knows who he likes in the Super Bowl: Ravens to take it all. He tells TMZ that he's with the team that has Ray Lewis on it. "It's a good looking Super Bowl, isn't it?" a TMZ reporter asks Dr. Dre. "Absolutely," Dr. Dre says. "I'm excited for Ray Lewis, man," he continues. "He's a good guy and I'm a fan of his. I'm wishing the best for him. " Not a bad endorsement from a California guy, who -- at least logistically speaking -- would seem inclined to go with San Francisco.

Baltimore Sun staff members weigh in on the Ravens' decision to fire offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and replace him with Jim Caldwell. Jeff Zrebiec, Ravens reporter: As much heat as Cameron has gotten over the past couple of years, today's news is still surprising. The Ravens don't usually make drastic moves like this especially at this stage of the season. But it's clear that the frustration by the team's key offensive players was mounting. Ray Rice was furious after Sunday's loss to the Washington Redskins.

THE PRESIDENT:  Hello, everybody!  Welcome to the White House.  (Applause.)  And welcome to the Super Bowl Champion -- world champion -- Baltimore Ravens.  (Applause.)  Everybody can have a seat.  That's why we set up chairs.  (Laughter.)        Now, I suspect that these guys are wondering, what kind of introduction is that?  No smoke machine.  (Laughter.)  No fire cannons.  Obama didn't even tear up chunks of turf and rub them on his suit.  (Laughter.)  That reminds me, by the way -- please don't do that on the South Lawn.  (Laughter.)

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was trending on Twitter Wednesday afternoon for all the wrong reasons. In an eight-hour period, Rice's image suffered severe damage -- the kind from which it might never recover. It was the result of two devastating media developments. It started with TMZ releasing video from an Atlantic City casino early in the day, and was followed by publication of a summons saying that Rice hit his fiancee with his hand "rendering her unconscious" at the casino Saturday night.

Ballet Theatre of Maryland is starting its 2014 season in history-making fashion, offering its first full-length production of "Swan Lake" in three performances over the Feb. 21-23 weekend at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts. Artistic director Dianna Cuatto is relishing the challenge after twice offering a shortened version. She calls "Swan Lake" "perhaps Tchaikovsky's finest ballet score" and "the last great romantic ballet from the golden era. " The masterwork is considered more symphonic than other ballets of the era and a romantic work overflowing with beautiful melodies.

To understand the wide chasm between the Ravens and the Cleveland Browns -- two teams at opposite ends of the NFL's hierarchy -- you need only to look at how the organizations conduct their business. Sure, talent evaluation, player development and fiscal responsibility are all factors in Baltimore's success. But so is stability, something the Browns have lacked ever since the NFL put a team back in Cleveland. The Browns restructured their chain of command once again on Tuesday, stunningly parting ways with CEO Joe Banner and general manager Mike Lombardi, whom owner Jimmy Haslam installed just 13 months ago. Ray Farmer was promoted to general manger and Alec Scheiner is the new team president.

It took me a little longer to get back to this than I expected (if it makes you feel better, imagine my hyperdrive motivator was damaged ), but after so many of you spent time this week reading about the  Star Wars-themed redesign of NFL team helmets , I had to share my recent e-mail exchange with John Raya, the project's mastermind. Raya, an artist in Mexico, said he had the idea for his project after studying fans of the Oakland Raiders. "I saw fans of the Raiders, those who attend every game, and saw that among them there is a character dressed as Darth Vader ," Raya wrote this week.

Rarely is a team, or its city, connected to one seminal moment in the way the Baltimore Colts are connected in so many minds with the 1958 NFL Championship game at the New York Giants, known as the "Greatest Game Ever Played. " On the cusp of Super Bowl XLVIII , which is back in the New York metro area at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey, one Campus Hills resident would like to see his Towson neighborhood memorialized as the community where several Colts greats from that era called home.

Among the crowd of some 200,000 people who attended the Baltimore Ravens' triumphant parade and celebration in Baltimore on Tuesday were more than a few parents who had to make a choice between letting their children attend and keeping a day of school. One of those was Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz - who attended the festivities at City Hall with his two sons, ages 9 and 11. “I got them back [to school] for the rest of the day,” said Kamenetz, whose boys attend Gilman.
