Happy Birthday, Beltway. You started as a detour. You evolved into Main Street.Without so much as a fanfare, the Baltimore Beltway turned 30 years old last week. No cake, candles, balloons or mid-life crisis for this 52-mile ring of concrete, steel and asphalt -- just the usual thankless workday, getting hundreds of thousands of cars and trucks from one point to another.The circular highway was initially conceived as an ideal way for East Coast interstate traffic to bypass the busy streets of Baltimore, particularly if the city became ground-zero in a nuclear attack -- a serious consideration when Congress adopted its national interstate and defense highway program in the mid-1950s.

No one wants to pull the plug on the Baltimore Beltway Classic, but no one seems willing to take measures necessary to keep it alive, either.The fourth Beltway Classic -- and apparently the last in this format -- will be held this weekend at UMBC. On Friday, Loyola and Mount St. Mary's meet at 6 p.m., and two-time champion Towson State plays UMBC at 8. On Saturday, the consolation game is at 6, the championship at 8.UMBC is the last of the four to be host to the tournament, and athletic directors from the participating schools have yet to make a final decision on its future.
