Burgers, fries, nachos, pizza. Camden Yards is still offering lots of tasty - but high calorie and fatty -- foods to please visitors, according to Alison Massey, a dietitian at Mercy Medical Center , who took stock on Opening Day. But she said careful eaters can get away without doing too much damage. “I had a turkey burger, which is probably the best among the meat choices,” she said. “I saw sunflower seeds and peanuts, and they're good too because they contain protein.

On Twitter, @paddynotpatty points out, "It's that time of year again. " Indeed it is, when the mock-Irish and faux-Irish will chatter cheerfully about "St. Patty's Day. " Patty is a woman's nickname, diminutive of Patricia, a flat cake of chopped meat, a meat pie, or a peppermint candy. The diminutive of Padraic (Irish) or Patrick (English) is Paddy . Get it right and reward yourself with a Guinness.

As I write this, I could swear I hear celebrity TV chef Gordon Ramsay's voice bellowing down 36th Street from Café Hon, 1002 W. 36th St. The host of Fox's "Kitchen Nightmares" is in town with a crew to give the longstanding Hampden eatery a going over for an upcoming episode. I admit, I generally don't watch the show. My tastes run more toward "Top Chef" and "No Reservations," but I am looking forward to this installment airing. Mostly, I'm curious if Café Hon owner Denise Whiting will be the first subject of the show to make the host break down instead of vice versa.

TCU can't get to the Big East fast enough. The Horned Frogs leave the Mountain West next season, which is looking good after their 50-48 loss to Baylor on Friday. If they were in the Big East this season, they'd still have a shot at a BCS bowl. The Big East should reconsider Villanova as a potential member. The FCS Wildcats have been mentioned as a possible addition, but after their 42-7 loss to Temple on Thursday, maybe Big East officials should rethink that. Don't mess with success.
