Young professional Morgan Bukszar describes her style as "classy, but comfortable." The 25-year-old Catonsville resident likes to look her best, whether she's out around town - like when we "Glimpsed" her at Believe In Tomorrow Children's Foundation's Benefit and Auction at M&T Bank Stadium - or working as continuing education coordinator for the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy. The look: Lipstick-red faux wrap cotton jersey top. Black and white cotton blend knit Trulli pencil skirt.

The Ravens last season were demolished in Denver, bumbled through their afternoon in Buffalo, and caved in close losses at Cleveland, Chicago and Cincinnati. A team that had relished going on the road and winning in coach John Harbaugh's first five seasons became a mistake-prone, defensively challenged shell of itself whenever it ventured away from M&T Bank Stadium in 2013. The current Ravens are a far different team, players have said repeatedly in recent weeks. They can prove that and distance themselves from recent road woes by going to Cleveland and beating the rejuvenated Browns on Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium.

A booming crack and a cloud of smoke from a small metallic device caused hundreds to scream, clutch their bodies and quickly head to the exits of M&T Bank Stadium yesterday. Soon, the parking lots outside the stadium were filled with flashing lights from firetrucks as emergency response workers tended to hundreds of disaster drill participants portraying ailing sports fans. The three-hour exercise, "Operation Purple Haze," gave 300 local first-response providers an opportunity to prepare for a terrorist attack involving a simulated nuclear weapon.

COLLEGE PARK  -   The Maryland football team puts together a preliminary scouting report of each opponent on its schedule during the summer, scanning through last season's film to get an early feel for what a team might look like this season. For West Virginia, the tape would have shown a mediocre team that finished 4-8 and had problems on offense and defense. A year later, the Mountaineers are much better, as Terps coach Randy Edsall and his staff saw Sunday when they began reviewing West Virginia's early-season tape.

Jack Kidwell watches his six-man crew lay the strips of sod that will cover the field for M&T Bank Stadium's first soccer game next week with the peaceful air of a farmer who knows his land has been well-tilled. "I've been doing this for 50 years," says Kidwell, 76, a native of tiny Boydton, Va., in a drawl as gentle as a Tidewater breeze. "You learn a few things in that time. One of them is it takes time to do this and do it right." Kidwell is founder, president and co-owner of Duraturf Service Corp.

The bad news for Karen Williams was that she had to miss soccer practice. The good news was that she still got her kicks in. The Forest Hill resident skipped out on her coed indoor soccer team to challenge Ravens guard Jason Brown in a little punting contest at M&T Bank Stadium last night. Williams and Brown stood at the 15-yard line and tried to boot the football between the uprights. Williams 1, Brown 0. "This is my first time coming to the stadium and being on the field," Williams said.

The doors at Slainte, an Irish pub in Fells Point, will open early today, and by midafternoon the place should be packed with soccer fans, many of them headed for M&T Bank Stadium. Bill Irvin, director of operations at the pub and restaurant, knows what's in store - he's witnessed similar scenes for televised broadcasts of top international soccer matches many times before. Baltimore, on the other hand, might be in for something much different from anything it has ever seen as two of the world's elite soccer clubs, Chelsea FC and AC Milan, square off at 8 p.m. before a flag-waving, anthem-chanting sellout crowd of more than 71,000 at a venue typically reserved for American football.

Where will you be at 4:15 p.m. today? For those not fortunate enough to have tickets to M&T Bank Stadium, the destination of choice is in front of a television set. With a victory today over the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Baltimore Ravens can clinch a spot in the NFL playoffs. This is big. This is really big. Not because the Ravens are favored to march through the playoffs and make another trip to the Super Bowl. They are not, although anything is possible. But rather because the Ravens' ascendancy this season has been so unexpected and so joyful to witness.

The Ravens placed starting guard Marshal Yanda and backup linebacker Tavares Gooden on injured reserve yesterday. Yanda, who injured his knee in the final two minutes of Sunday's 31-3 loss at Indianapolis, is expected to have surgery soon. Gooden, a rookie third-round pick, had played in four games this season. To replace those players, the Ravens signed tight end Edgar Jones and wide receiver Ernie Wheelwright from the practice squad. Two rookies - defensive back Derrick Roberson (Rutgers)

For most of Ray Lewis' 17-year NFL career, his face - eyes burning, mouth bellowing exhortations - was the face of the Ravens. Johnny Unitas' flinty gaze and stooped shoulders had symbolized pro football for earlier generations of Baltimore fans, and Lewis followed in the great quarterback's footsteps, becoming an icon for the new era of purple and black ardor. The Ravens made that association official Thursday morning, unveiling a bronze statue of the retired linebacker only a few feet from the statue of Unitas that greets visitors outside M&T Bank Stadium.

When fans head through the main entrance at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday for the Ravens' regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals, they'll be greeted by a familiar sight. Ray Lewis starred for 17 seasons with the Ravens. Now he'll be immortalized next to another Baltimore sporting icon. The Ravens announced Wednesday that the statue of the middle linebacker will be unveiled Thursday at a ceremony scheduled for 11 a.m. in Unitas Plaza. Sculpted by Frederick Kail, the statue will be erected to the right of one depicting legendary Baltimore Colts quarterback Johnny Unitas outside the north entrance of the stadium.

About eight months ago, the Ravens trudged off the field at Paul Brown Stadium, a 34-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals bringing an end to their season and their streak of five consecutive playoff appearances. Ravens coach John Harbaugh and his players have grown tired of hearing about the disappointing 2013 campaign. The 2014 Ravens are a completely different team, they say. The coaching staff has been overhauled. Some veterans moved on, and rookies and second-year players were elevated into starting roles.

It was only one drive, lasting 10 plays and just under five minutes. But it was just what quarterback Joe Flacco and the first-team offense needed to kick off the preseason and the Gary Kubiak era. Flacco drove the offense down the field for a touchdown in his only series and spent the rest of the night on the sideline watching the Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers, 23-3, in front of an announced 70,529 at M&T Bank Stadium. “It was nice,” Flacco said. “It felt good to get out here in a game-type situation and feel the nerves of a real game.

The Ravens' joint practice with the San Francisco 49ers scheduled for Friday at M&T Bank Stadium has been canceled, the team announced Saturday, citing rules in the NFL's collective bargaining agreement with its players. The CBA limits the number of consecutive days a team can practice or take part in football activities during training camp. The decision to call off Friday's event stems from the 49ers' practice and travel schedule leading up to Thursday's first preseason game at 7:30 p.m. "The CBA, the way their schedule sets up, they're not going to be able to do it," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.

"Come during the season, when we have six tables out. " Purple-clad fans swarmed to M&T Bank Stadium to spend a warm summer evening watching their favorite players run drills and sign autographs during the first of the team's three open practices.

The Central Maryland Football and Cheer League's recreational football season ended on a positive note for Howard County teams this past weekend, with the locals winning seven championships - including six captured in games at M&T Bank Stadium. Mike Milani, the community sports supervisor for the Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks and the football league's president, said that eight age groups played championship games Saturday on the Baltimore Ravens' home field. "It's a win-win situation for everybody," Milani said.

One reason the Ravens have the NFL's best regular-season home record since 2000 is the noise created by their fans. Another factor is an unspoken rule: No one runs on the Ravens on their home field. Teams have to become one-dimensional on offense at M&T Bank Stadium because they can't expect to establish a ground game. The Ravens haven't allowed a 100-yard rusher in their past 12 home games. The Houston Texans' Domanick Davis was the last to do so when he gained 155 yards Dec. 4, 2005.

At first glance, it's probably hard to see Rahshaun Smith and say he's an underdog. He stands 6 feet 3, weighs 230 pounds and has a deep, booming voice. His nickname is Shaq - and it was given to him at age 12. On the football field, Smith exhibits a rare combination of speed and athleticism that reminds scouts of Jadeveon Clowney and Da'Shawn Hand. Smith's time in the 40-yard dash has been listed anywhere from 4.5 to 4.7 seconds. The defensive lineman has been rated as one of the top prospects for the 2016 recruiting class.
