Baltimore beach volleyball is a highly visible contrast to the many negatives often associated with Baltimore ( "How to save Baltimore's beach volleyball," Aug. 6). In fact, an investment banker who is an avid player told me it was the main reason he chose Baltimore to live and work. It is not only a place to play and unwind after a hard day's or week's work, it is an inviting social setting to network with real live, lively people. I actually discovered the Inner Harbor myself when my daughter played and ended up moving to Key Highway.

It is an event within an event, the first stop on the new National Volleyball League's six-city tour. Marking the third time professional beach volleyball has come to the Preakness, tournament director Jimmy Mason said that the atmosphere at Pimlico is perfect for beach volleyball, which got its start in Baltimore when the sport's Olympic Trials were held downtown. The fans who attended Saturday's event are much like many of the horse racing fans were come to one race a year, the Preakness.

Regarding commentator Gary K. Katz's recent piece on Baltimore Beach, as a college student and future engineer I have just begun to consider what I plan on doing after I graduate from the University of Maryland ( "Don't pave paradise," July 29). Factors to consider are, of course, job opportunities, living opportunities and social opportunities. With these three in mind, the area of Federal Hill has always appealed to me as having great potential for an educated 20-something.

One of the many competitions taking place in the Infield at Pimlico today -- along with the bikini contest, a 64-team cornhole tournament and some kind of competitive eating event you couldn't pay me to watch -- is the National Volleyball League’s inaugural event. It was created after the AVP tour ran out of money, I'm told. The 16-team double-elimination tournament, the first of the new beach volleyball tour’s six-stop season, started at Baltimore’s Rash Field on Friday and is wrapping up at the Preakness as I type this blog post.

Alas, Kegasus will not be the most athletic, um, sentient being in the infield at Preakness. Olympic Gold medalists Phil Dalhausser and Todd Rogers will compete in a National Volleyball League (yes, that's a thing) event on May 18-19. The pair will be making their domestic debut in advance of the London Games. Dalhausser, who's nickname "The Thin Beast" must be among the best in sports, will be recognizable to many sports fans. One, he's a thin beast. Two, he's got a bald dome that really sticks with you. Summer Olympic contenders Jen Kessy and April Ross will also compete on Preakness weekend, in what might be, according to a release, the only domestic appearance by American teams prior to the competition in London.  America's best known beach duo -- Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh -- has reunited but is not scheduled to appear in Baltimore.

The eventThe U.S. Olympic beach volleyball trials begin today at the Inner Harbor, with preliminary sessions today and tomorrow and Olympic qualifying matches this weekend. No matches are scheduled for Thursday, which will serve as a rain makeup day if either of the first two sessions is postponed or interrupted by inclement weather. But matches will be stopped only if the weather is severe (heavy rain or lightning), so fans should bring umbrellas if there is a chance of light or moderate showers.

Two years ago I moved to Baltimore, where the roads are littered with pot holes (and litter) - I should know because I've had to circle them to find parking. Two of my housemates have had their cars broken into, my high taxes make my escrow payments exceed my mortgage, and a train bellows its horn in my neighborhood at all hours of the night. So it surprises me that in my first public request of this city, I am simply asking for it's leaders to do nothing at all. I am a 33-year-old professional, and I am a demographic that every city fights to have.

Kevin Cowherd Ravens 20, Chargers 13 Maybe it's the sunshine. Maybe it's the palm trees. Something comes over the Ravens on these West Coast trips. The Jekyl and Hyde Chargers have lost five of their last six, but still have a shot at the playoffs. This one will be close. And ugly. Edward Lee Chargers 28, Ravens 17 The Chargers may be reeling, but historically, they have feasted on the Ravens in San Diego. Quarterback Philip Rivers is no Byron Leftwich, and he will take advantage of the Ravens' re-tooled secondary to find tight end Antonio Gates and wide receiver Malcom Floyd for big plays.

The makeshift beach is in and the U.S. Olympic beach volleyball trials begin today at a temporary 4,500-seat arena built for the occasion near HarborView. Now, it's just a matter of filling all those seats and enjoying Baltimore's Olympic moment in the sun.Ticket sales have not been brisk, but organizers remain confident that the trials will be both a financial success and an impressive civic event. Though only about 4,000 of the 19,000 available tickets have been sold for the five-day qualifying tournament, they point to past beach volleyball events as proof that it appeals largely to a walk-up crowd.

While the city reviews proposals to invigorate the Inner Harbor, the Greater Baltimore Committee unveiled a vision of its own, highlighted by a pedestrian bridge that would link the north and south shores, allowing visitors for the first time to walk a complete circle around the downtown waterfront. Leaders of the business group also proposed light and water shows for the harbor, and three different ideas for turning Rash Field on the south shore into a world-class park. The bridge would be built high enough above the water that most sailboats and water taxis could travel underneath.
