Baltimore Ravens

Standing in front of his locker late Thursday night, running back Bernard Pierce smiled when reminded how the Ravens struggled mightily to run the football last season. Pierce was typically grouchy after games last year, a man of few words and even fewer explanations for why the Ravens rushed for the fewest yards in franchise history. Pierce was in a much different mood at M&T Bank Stadium after the Ravens' 23-3 victory over the San Francisco 49ers to open the preseason. For at least this game, the Ravens' revamped running game was transformed into a dominant outfit as they rushed for 237 yards and a touchdown on 48 carries to average 4.9 yards per rush.

Rather than running constant articles about the Baltimore Ravens and their - um - misadventures ("Ray Rice apologizes to wife and all domestic violence victims in first comments since suspension," July 31), why not file a feel-good story on how many Orioles fans are in attendance at games as far away as California?

Three U.S. Senators sent letters to the Baltimore Ravens and the National Football League on Thursday criticizing what they called "plainly inadequate" punishment for star running back Ray Rice. Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy of Connecticut, and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin - all Democrats - implored the league and the Ravens to revisit their sanctions against Rice, who was charged with felony aggravated assault after police said he knocked his then-fiancee unconscious at an Atlantic City, N.J., casino in February.

Yesterday, in the wake of the second murder of a transgender woman in Baltimore in the last two months , Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts held a press conference to convey a commitment to solving the crime and improving police relations with the transgender community. Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard Reggie Bullock also started tweeting about 26-year-old Mia Henderson's death, saying she was his "brother," and the case -- which city police had clearly sought to shine a spotlight on -- became the subject of international news.

Joshua Cain felt miserable as his Engine 58 crew gathered in the kitchen of their Annapolis Road firehouse after a brutal blaze that ripped through several rowhouses and took hours to control. Only two months into the job as a Baltimore firefighter, he had found a dog that looked just like his childhood Belgian shepherd-poodle badly burned and not moving inside one of the ravaged homes. Cain and his colleagues sat around the kitchen table, telling stories of their own dogs. The camaraderie made him feel "like part of the team," Cain said.

The recipe is familiar, but with a fresh twist. Mix the salty, crunchy goodness of traditional munchies with the spicy kick reminiscent of Maryland's steamed crabs - and add the power of several professional Baltimore athletes for good measure - and you've got a new line of snacks with hometown flavor. Crab-inspired cheese curls, buttery popcorn and sunflower seeds are some of the product offerings from Home Team Snacks, headquartered in Carroll County. Launched in 2012, the company is the brainchild of Marc Heyman and Jeff Hinton, 49-year-old Baltimore-area natives who grew up in Mount Washington and Catonsville, respectively.

The recent three-day 2014 NCAA Men's Lacrosse championship event at M&T Stadium drew the lowest attendance yet - 78,234 - since Baltimore introduced it to NFL stadiums in 2003. And the Baltimore Ravens, the main stadium tenant, did not submit a bid to host the event in 2015 through 2018 in part because of potential parking lot conflicts during simultaneous Orioles games. How does this happen with a sporting event and geographic region, that seem to be so right for one another? With the sport's national governing body, US Lacrosse, here, along with the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame,  there is little doubt about the depth of both participation and support for the sport locally, and within 100 miles from Baltimore.

Inside linebacker C.J. Mosley had some tough classes at the University of Alabama, but nothing as hard as learning about playing in the National Football League. Mosley has been on a crash course since the Ravens drafted him in the first-round (17th overall) of the NFL draft a few weeks ago. It is eat and sleep football all day, every day. Mosley, though, is finally getting settled. "The biggest adjustment is adjusting to football all day," Mosley said. "You're here at 6 in the morning.
