Please allow this Snow-Belt-raised gal to respond to the article "Winter-tested cities amused by our plight" (Feb. 11): I have seen, and shoveled, lots and lots and lots of snow in my life. But I have never seen anything like this. With all due respect to my brethren still dwelling in northern climes, they're full of, um, stuffing. Buffalo, Syracuse, Erie, Chicago, the Twin Cities -- sure, they get a lot of snow. But comparisons between full-season totals and one-two-storm totals are the proverbial apples and oranges.

Men's college lacrosse MAAC bids to host D-I quarterfinals in Buffalo The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference submitted a bid to host the NCAA Division I men's lacrosse quarterfinals at Ralph Wilson Stadium, home to the NFL's Buffalo Bills, sometime between 2015 and 2018, according to Buffalo Business First. The quarterfinals have never been held in the Buffalo-Niagara region. The area would seem to fit with the NCAA's vision to expand the game geographically: Last season, two quarterfinals were played at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, the first-ever quarterfinal site not on the East Coast.

Desperate times apparently call for harsh measures inside the Pittsburgh Steelers' locker room, a once-vibrant place where fun and games not involving football have now been outlawed. With his team winless through four games and in last place in the AFC North, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin took the unusual step of banning pool, table tennis and shuffleboard at work. Previously, only veteran players were allowed to play. Earlier this season, older players said the games were off-limits to rookies until they first earned their stripes on the field.

Samuel Rosado is the sort of cabdriver who takes pride in his work. And that's putting it mildly. When the streets are filled with snow and the air with howling wind, that's when Rosado displays his mettle. Last weekend, he worked right through the storm, he said, and in three days made $1,000. "These roads are really bad," he said Wednesday, in the middle of the second snowstorm in less than a week, as he waited for a fare outside Baltimore's Penn Station. "But since I'm from Buffalo [N.Y.

I think our league has gained a lot of credibility for salvaging things."

JUST TWO days into the new year, the first jittery stirrings of the weather wimps could be heard throughout Baltimore yesterday. Via the usual caffeinated TV weathermen and their Insta-Weather and StormTracker and Doppler radar toys, Baltimoreans learned that a winter storm was headed for much of the Eastern Seaboard. The bulk of the storm's sleet and snow was expected to remain to our south. But there was a chance - oh, the horror! - that light snow and flurries could hit our region today, guaranteeing that in thousands of homes and offices, people would spend much of the day by their windows, shooting nervous glances at the sky and waiting for the first flakes of White Death to appear.

They held a post-game party at the UMBC Fieldhouse last night and, judging by the University of Maryland Baltimore County's performance late in its game against Buffalo, the Retrievers did not want to be late.How else to explain a second half in which the Retrievers had a 17-point lead with 12 minutes left, only to struggle to an 87-84 win before 1,277?In winning, the Retrievers avoided tying a school record for consecutive home losses, ending a five-game home losing streak. UMBC also moved into second place in the East Coast Conference, a game behind Rider (10-7, 5-0)

A collection of what other media outlets are saying as the Ravens prepare for Sunday's game on the road against the Miami Dolphins. * NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal raves about the Ravens' acquisition of left tackle Eugene Monroe . The city of Baltimore was hoping general manager Ozzie Newsome could work his magic and make a trade for a wide receiver who would save the sagging Ravens offense. He did much better. * CBS Sports' Pete Prisco believes a change of scenery will help Monroe . During the summer, I made Eugene Monroe the left tackle on my All-Prisco team, but he hasn't played up to that level so far this season.

Ask those who know Archbishop Spalding quarterback Zach Abey for one adjective to describe him and "tough" will be the most common response. A talented, durable two-way football player, Abey is also a champion wrestler and a rugby player. At 6 feet 2, 205 pounds, he can take a pounding and keep on going. When coach Kyle Schmitt took over the Cavaliers program last summer, he said: "Everything goes through Zach. " The No. 13 Cavaliers are 4-1 overall and 1-0 in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference after Abey ran for three touchdowns in Friday's 21-10 win over Loyola.

Each week, Baltimore Sun reporters Aaron Wilson and Matt Vensel look back at the Ravens' previous game and that of their next opponent. Bills 23, Ravens 20 Strategy: A largely ineffective pass-first game plan was scuttled by a career-high five interceptions from Joe Flacco. The primary idea was to exploit an injury-riddled secondary, but cornerback Aaron Williams and middle linebacker Kiko Alonso rose to the occasion and alertly picked off two passes apiece. The focus was throwing outside, including a dozen targets for Torrey Smith (Maryland)

Ravens coach John Harbaugh wasn't willing to second guess the decision Sunday to abandon the run game nor was he in the mood to protect some of the team's under-performing players. Given ample time to digest Sunday's mistake-filled 23-20 road loss to the Buffalo Bills, a candid Harbaugh called the offensive line "disappointing," challenged drops-prone tight end Ed Dickson to "go catch the ball," and defended the play-calling. Quarterback Joe Flacco dropped back to pass on 31 straight plays at one point and the Ravens' ran the ball a franchise-low nine times, including only twice in the second half, for just 24 yards.

After sitting out last week's win over the Houston Texans with a hip injury, the first game he had missed since his rookie season, running back Ray Rice was listed as questionable heading into Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Not only did Rice play, he received a heavy workload in the 23-20 loss . Rice played 43 of the team's 63 offensive snaps, though he was mostly just there for show -- well, pass blocking if you want to get technical. Rice received just five carries as the Ravens abandoned the running game at halftime, and he was targeted just once as a receiver on the 50 passes that Joe Flacco tossed.

Whichever direction Buffalo Bills running backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller chose on Sunday, they left behind a trail of cleat marks and fallen defenders as they mercilessly pounded the football against the Ravens' traditionally stout defense. During a 23-20 loss to the Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium, the Ravens allowed 203 rushing yards as Buffalo set an opponent franchise record with 55 rushing attempts. The yardage is the fifth-most allowed by the Ravens in franchise history. "That sounds ugly," defensive lineman Chris Canty said.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- A warming trend made Buffalo seem almost balmy yesterday. Thankful as residents here are, that change in weather might dilute the Bills' home-field advantage for today's AFC championship game against the Kansas City Chiefs.Game time temperature at Rich Stadium is expected to be in the low 30s, with 10- to 15-mph winds. Snow flurries are predicted, but they're expected to end before kickoff.That forecast is about 30 degrees warmer than for last week's playoff game here, when the Bills froze out the Los Angeles Raiders, 29-23, in the coldest game in club history.

While the Baltimore Ravens and the Buffalo Bills prepare for their Sunday matchup, the two franchises don't seem to have much in common. Buffalo has gone through six general managers since 2000 and hasn't made the playoffs during that time. Meanwhile, Baltimore has been the model of consistency, with nine playoff appearances and two Super Bowl championships. The two cities do share one unflattering trait, though. Baltimore and Buffalo rank as the only metropolitan areas with a National Football League franchise that don't also have a Fortune 500 company within their boundaries, according to a release from Maryland Business for Responsive Government.

A roundup of NFL experts' picks for Sunday's game between the Ravens and Buffalo Bills. * CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco predicts a 21-14 victory for the Ravens . The Ravens have really impressed on defense the past two weeks. That will challenge EJ Manuel, who has struggled some and did so last week against the Jets. Baltimore hasn't exactly lit it up on offense -- ranking 30th in the league -- but this is a game where the defense will set them up. Ravens find a way.   * ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio and Michael David Smith both believe the Ravens will win . MDS's take: I picked against the Ravens last week and got it wrong.
