So did the presence of former Baltimore Bullets and Knicks greats revisiting Baltimore Arena, where they waged one of the league's best rivalries in the 1960s and early 1970s.

Owner of three Silver Spring Mining Company restaurants, he plans to attend Tuesday night's National Hockey League preseason game, dubbed the Baltimore Hockey Classic, between the Capitals and Boston Bruins at the Baltimore Arena (7 p.m.)

Only people who know where to look would be able to pay respects to Norman Chaney, who is buried in an unmarked grave in Baltimore. But if fans of the chubby "Our Gang" star have their way, he'll soon have the headstone he's done so long without. Chaney, the son of a Baltimore electrical worker, won a national contest in 1929 to become "Chubby," the new "fat kid" in the popular film series, replacing the original Chubby, who had grown out of the role. But with his impossibly round face and impish charm, Chaney eclipsed his predecessor - becoming the fat kid people remembered.

In Washington, Elizabeth Warren has undergone some merciless grilling by members of Congress about the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau she is setting up. But in Baltimore, speaking at Rep. Elijah E. Cummings’ town hall meeting tonight, Warren received rock star treatment. In fact, she was called a “rock star” a few times and received two standing ovations in the overcrowded auditorium.
