Under Armour also has distribution centers in Baltimore and Rialto, Calif. The Tennessee warehouse will employ 1,500 workers over the next five years. The company operates two Under Armour Factory House retail stores in the state, in Nashville and Sevierville.

Michael Phelps was arrested early Tuesday in Baltimore, charged for the second time in 10 years with drunken driving. The charge comes five months after the record-setting Olympian's return to competition. Phelps, 29, was stopped for speeding just outside the Fort McHenry Tunnel about 1:40 a.m. Tuesday, Maryland Transportation Authority Police said. He was clocked going 84 mph in a 45-mph zone in his 2014 Land Rover and subsequently failed a standard field sobriety test, police said.

By all accounts, it was a great weekend for Baltimore sports. The inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix had a nice turnout, and one writer is already hyping Baltimore as the “Long Beach of the East,” which I guess is a good thing. The Ravens signed five-time Pro Bowl center Andre Gurode . The Randy Edsall era at Maryland got off to a solid start against Miami on Monday night. And the Orioles... well, at least there were other things to tune in for this weekend. If you celebrated Labor Day by watching the Orioles, you were treated to Brian Matusz allowing five runs against the Yankees as he failed to escape the second inning in a frustrating 11-10 loss . That wasn't pretty, but was it the ugliest moment from a beautiful Baltimore sports weekend overall?

Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic is launching a new website covering Baltimore-area sports, promising "extensive coverage" of the Ravens, Orioles and the University of Maryland Terrapins. The site — CSNbaltimore.com — is scheduled to go live next Tuesday, the company said Thursday. Comcast launched a similar site one year ago for Washington, D.C., CSNwashington.com. Comcast said the Baltimore site will have breaking news, feature pieces, game coverage and blogs, with stories about high school sports as well as college and professional teams.

Every Monday, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will rank the most significant athletes and events in Baltimore sports that week based on accomplishments on and off the field.

Judging by the comments on David Zurawik’s posts about Mark Viviano leaving 105.7 The Fan , sports fans in Baltimore are almost as passionate about the broadcasters who cover their hometown teams as they are about the actual teams themselves. Every Baltimore broadcaster who has been in front of the camera or behind the microphone has had his or her fair share of loyal supporters -- yes, even Anita Marks. It seems as though many of you were fond of Viviano, who left his morning show at The Fan after more than six years because he needed a break from working two jobs (he is still the sports director at WJZ)

I wrote a little about this before. But now I want your opinion. So come sit down by the bar, grab a Boh and give me your two cents (no, that's not the suggested tip). The Ravens play in the AFC title game Sunday. One upset win over the New England Patriots and Ray Lewis and company are back in the Super Bowl for the first time since 2000-01. Meanwhile, the Orioles host FanFest on Saturday and record crowds would not be a surprise. The club, after all, made the playoffs for the first time in 15 years.

Just seven days ago, Baltimore's sports fans, the faithful clad in orange and purple, were brimming with optimism. The Ravens were set to open what they hoped would be a bounce-back season with star running back Ray Rice due to return at the end of the week from a two-game suspension for a domestic violence incident - a penalty roundly criticized as too light. The Orioles, meanwhile, were rolling toward a division title, leading their nearest rivals by a margin they hadn't enjoyed in decades.

Edgar Allan Poe once wrote that those who dream during the day "are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. " So it seems entirely fitting that Baltimore can spend the first Purple Friday - or dare we say, Orange-Purple Friday - of September daydreaming of a Ravens-Orioles championship season. Technically, the Ravens can't win a championship in 2014, as that feat was accomplished by some team out of Seattle last winter (coincidentally, a fellow member of the bird family)

Under Armour acted swiftly to move beyond the controversy over whether the brand's high-tech skinsuits were responsible for U.S. speedskaters' lackluster run at the Sochi Olympics. The Baltimore sports apparel maker renewed its sponsorship of US Speedskating through two more Winter Olympics in a deal announced Friday. "We want to make a big statement of coming back and saying we're going to put an eight-year commitment for two more Olympics to have athletes wearing and competing in Under Armour and hopefully winning lots and lots of medals," Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank told CNN on Friday.

When they race this month at the Olympics, U.S. speedskaters will suit up in skin-tight, high-tech uniforms that research shows could make a measurable difference in their speed. In a quest to create the world's fastest suit for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, two iconic Maryland companies, Under Armour and Lockheed Martin, created a unique collaboration. Already a supplier for the team, Baltimore's hometown sports apparel brand turned to the Bethesda-based defense and aerospace giant to help it fashion the most aerodynamic suit possible, using computer modeling based on filming the athletes and hundreds of hours of wind tunnel testing.

Under Armour's house just got a lot bigger. The Baltimore-based sports apparel company announced Tuesday that it has signed the University of Notre Dame, one of the nation's most popular college football programs, to a 10-year exclusive deal to design and supply clothing, footwear and equipment for all of the school's men's and women's varsity teams. The deal, which Notre Dame called the largest ever in college football, comes a day after Under Armour's headquarters in Locust Point was decorated with banners welcoming Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel to its house.

In this week's edition of Blogger on Blogger, I reached out to Baltimore Sports and Life blogger Daniel Bryden, who does a great job breaking down the Ravens , to wrap up the season. I would recommend you follow Dan on Twitter . MV: The running game was the team's biggest issue this season with much of the ire being directed at run game coordinator Juan Castillo. The Ravens have been using zone blocking for years, though. How did Castillo tweak the scheme and why was the running game such a massive?
