Big Game

February 12, 2013
On behalf of the people of New Orleans, we want to thank you for allowing us to host your fans for Super Bowl XLVII. It was a great week and a great game between two great teams. And as we all experienced, no one does drama like New Orleans. Your fans are a real class act, and it was a joy to have them in our city, which we affectionately refer to as NOLA. Our lives in politics and media have allowed us to experience some pretty important and exciting events, but nothing has given us more pride than welcoming you to our city and representing New Orleans for this year's big game.

This one was ugly, an 80-69 beatdown at the hands of Virginia that made that patch of gray in Mark Turgeon's hair practically double in size. A few more losses like this and he'll need the Just for Men even more than I do. The big question for Maryland on Sunday was this: where was Alex Len? The big sophomore center finished with nine points, but four came in the last 1:18 when Comcast Center was emptying and the cleaning crew was getting the mops and brooms ready. OK, Len finished with seven boards and blocked a few shots.

Minutes before Monday's flight to New Orleans, Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco was seen with his favorite treat: Haribo Gold-Bears. The original gummi bears are Flacco's go-to choice while prepping for the big game. Known for his sweet tooth, Flacco's favorite flavor is Pineapple. This has been a 4-minute Ravens-related post.

Having the Ravens in the post-season has been great for bars and taverns but not always for restaurants. The Jan. 16 divisional game against Denver, for instance, took a bite out of Saturday-night profits when it went into overtime. A Sunday night playoff game, like last week's conference championship, doesn't hurt as much. Restaurant business is traditionally slower on Sunday night, and there are places like Peter's Inn and Henninger's , both in Fells Point, that close every Sunday night.

You could feel the love from the opening kickoff. Even as Jacoby Jones took a knee in the end zone, things were getting chippy. Forearms were flying, shoves were traded and the Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers were exchanging the usual pleasantries that go along with the most heated rivalry in the NFL. But in the end, it was the Steelers who were the tougher team Sunday, tough enough to steal a 23-20 win at M&T Bank Stadium, where the Ravens had...

A largely untested Maryland team opened a promising basketball season Friday night hoping to deliver a performance worthy of its big moment - a chance to knock off defending national champion Kentucky in front of a sellout crowd at the stylish, new $1 billion Barclays Center. Even coach Mark Turgeon had to wonder: Could the Terps - who didn't make the postseason last year - manage to play big enough so early in the season to match their imposing surroundings? Turgeon's concerns seemed merited as the Terps looked skittish early.

Football teams are notorious for adhering to routines, and under coach Randy Edsall, Maryland is no different. He doesn't want his players treating one game much differently than the next. Like a golf swing endlessly repeated, Edsall wants their preparation for each contest to be precise. Maryland's insistence on sameness helps explain why Terps players were offering few indications that Saturday's meeting with North Carolina State presented an opportunity for perhaps their most significant victory since Edsall's arrival in early 2011.

Hundreds of computers, monitors, pieces of office furniture and digital design tools were auctioned Tuesday in Timonium to raise money for creditors of defunct Big Huge Games and its Rhode Island parent company, 38 Studios LLC. Traces of a one-time creative environment remained on the fifth floor of a Timonium office building as people bid on hundreds of video games, game consoles, pingpong and pool tables, and stereo and audio equipment. "This was a great place to work," quipped Matt Greenberg, a Baltimore County resident who was looking to buy furniture.
