It was the feel-good story of the Ravens' victory over the New York Jets — other than the victory itself, of course. Rookie tight end Ed Dickson found out just hours before the game that he was about to become a father a little earlier than expected, which left him with quite a decision to make about his NFL debut on "Monday Night Football. " Should I stay or should I go? The correct answer might seem obvious to some — family first, football second — but the question was not that simple, especially for a young player who had yet to play a down at the professional level.

Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph picked up his first career major League hit in the bottom of the fourth inning Tuesday night when he lined a fastball from Detroit Tigers left-hander Drew Smyly on an 0-1 count to center field. “It was good, but it doesn't matter because we lost,” Joseph said after the game. “Personal achievements don't mean crap to me right now. I'm just trying to win games for the Orioles.” When he reached first base, the crowd at Camden Yards recognized the milestone with a standing ovation.

By a strike to the jaw or by a submission on the ground, in 25 seconds or 25 minutes, Jon "Bones" Jones was going to win Saturday night. That was the consensus reached as UFC 172 neared, and it was not an unfair one. He is the best pound-for-pound fighter in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and the allure of his fights, for as one-sided and almost unfair as they are, now seems to be in what he will say before or after them. His results have otherwise spoken for themselves. That was the case last week, when UFC's poster boy, fighting out of Endicott, N.Y., spoke of having a hometown advantage in his light-heavyweight title bout against Glover Teixeira inside Baltimore Arena.

It was a big night at the American Heart Association's Heart Ball. Big place, big turnout, big hearts. The party was held inside the Warehouse, next to the Rusty Scupper on Key Highway, where 715 guests gathered to raise more than $230,000 in the battle against coronary disease. It also was a celebration of Baltimore. The building brimmed with bits of Charm City history and projections of cityscapes shimmered on the brick walls. Mingling among the memorabilia: William Donald Schaefer, event chair; Chuck Knudsen, logistics committee chair; Donald Kirson, sales committee chair; Bud Russell and John Sandblower, event committee members; Grant Cole, board chair of AHA Mid-Atlantic Affiliate Maryland Council; Neil M. Meltzer, board chair-elect; Jay Weinstein, Jackie Gaines, Larry Frank and Sheldon S. Satisky, board members; Bob Kirkpatrick, executive vice president of the AHA Mid-Atlantic Affiliate; Dr. Ligia Peralta, assistant professor of pediatrics, University of Maryland; Rich Galen, vice president of the Rouse Co.; Jerry Edwards, president of Chef's Expressions; and Dr. Sandy Quartner, obstetrician-gynecologist at GBMC.

Some things never change. On a night the Blast paid tribute to its 1983-84 Major Indoor Soccer League championship team, an old nemesis also was back in town to put a damper on the otherwise memorable occasion. Remember the San Diego Sockers, the team that got the better of the Blast in four championship series back in those '80s? Making its first trip to Baltimore in more than a decade, the Sockers took control early and stayed on top of things the rest of the way for a much-too-easy, 20-11 win over the Blast last night at 1st Mariner Arena.

My daughter was in a play this past weekend. She'd worked really hard on her lines, and my husband I were very excited to see the production but were trying to act somewhat cool so as to not make her extra nervous. The big night came. The costume was on. The congratulatory flowers were purchased. The house lights went down. The tension built. And then? It was iPads as far as the eye could see. Now let me tell you, it's hard to watch a show when so many people in front of you are holding up iPads, which display what they are filming, so it's like sitting in the dark and looking out at a sea of brighly flickering televisions that people are hoisting above their heads.

Despite not making the playoffs this season, the Orioles can say they got the best of the American League East champion Boston Red Sox. The Orioles' 6-5 comeback win over Boston clinched a season-series win over the Red Sox, 10-8, making them the only AL East team to have a winning record against Boston this season. They also clinched their first back-to-back season-series wins over the Red Sox since the 1991-1992 seasons. The Red Sox will still have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, while the Orioles still will empty their lockers after Sunday afternoon's regular-season finale and part ways for the offseason.

This year's Extreme Rules pay-per-view event left us with some unanswered questions but also some new beginnings. In the main event (a rare moment in WWE history where all wrestlers in a final match on PPV weren't on a full-time WWE schedule), Brock Lesnar defeated Triple H in a cage match. Lesnar went up 2-1 on "The Game" and is likely poised for another future match in WWE (not against Triple H), perhaps at Summerslam or Wrestlemania 30. Questions coming out of this match are: will Triple H wrestle again?

BOSTON - Over the past two nights, the Orioles recaptured those late-inning heroics of last season at Fenway Park. One night after a five-run ninth-inning rally led them to victory, the Orioles came from behind against the Red Sox again Thursday, winning 3-2 in a game that played out much like so many of last year's close wins. This victory sealed the Orioles' fifth straight series win at Fenway Park, a streak that dates back to July 7-10, 2011. “It means a lot,” said Orioles center fielder Adam Jones, who drove in two runs, including the game-winner in the seventh.

If you can handle another six hours of baseball today - and you have access to more than just the local baseball broadcast - you have the option of watching a pretty amazing split doubleheader tonight. The Tampa Bay Rays need to right themselves now. They open a huge series at Yankee Stadium tonight with David Price facing Yankees ace CC Sabathia in the opener. Price is a leading Cy Young candidate with his 17-5 record and 2.54 ERA. Sabathia has not put up his usual gaudy numbers, but he is still one of the top starters in the majors.

"I love Big Tracks, Little Tracks by Millicent Selsam. It lets you know how to find animals that are hiding. It tells you what their tracks look like. It asks questions. I love this book because I like tracks! You have to read it! I learned that you can be a detective." -- Brady Collins Charles Carroll Elementary "My book review is on Cat's Big Night / Dog Behind Bars by Nancy Krulik. The book is about Dog being sent to jail because he was making too much noise. I like the book because you can flip it over and find a story about a cat."

He bleached it to play bully journalist Walter Winchell for an HBO movie, and it stuck.It's more than just a hair thing. He is finally shaking the grim, bad-guy roles that have stalked him since he did his first, blink-and-you-missed-it walk-on in "Prizzi's Honor" (1985).After winning acclaim as the younger brother/owner of a failing restaurant in the melancholic comedy "Big Night" (1996)

The ball from his first major league hit sat in his locker, and Orioles rookie outfielder Xavier Avery promised he'd give it a good home. “Put it in my trophy room at home, back in Atlanta,” Avery said. “I'm going to hold on to it, and I'm never going to lose it.” And the memories of a night of firsts will also last forever. In the Orioles' 8-5 loss to the Yankees, Avery tallied his first hit - a leadoff double in the first inning - and drove in this first run with a fifth-inning triple that scored Robert Andino.
