Steve Bisciotti was still a minority owner of the Baltimore Ravens when planning began for the team's new training facility in Owings Mills. After his staff canvassed other National Football League teams about what they liked, or might do differently, in their headquarters, he turned the team's wish list over to an architect. He wasn't pleased with the results. "He said it looked like his junior high," said Kevin Byrne, the Ravens' senior vice president for public relations. "He said he wanted something warm, welcoming and something that looked like it had been here for 100 years.

If left offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie was holding out of team conditioning sessions and multiple off season mini-camps, there would be major concern because he might report to training camp as bloated as an inflatable doll. But I have no concern about running back Ray Rice missing voluntary conditioning, which started Monday. I have more concerns about Jah Reid being flexible enough to play left guard, and ancient center Matt Birk lasting another season. I am more worried about outside linebacker Paul Kruger being able to hold the edge on running plays and whether Sergio Kindle can develop into a top pass rusher.

Nearly 30 years after the wreckers leveled Lexington Street's Valencia Theatre, this rococo plaster castle is getting some belated professional recognition.The Valencia was the work of John Eberson, a flamboyant architect who specialized in fantastic theaters. Eberson (1875-1954), born in Bukovina (now the U.S.S.R.), got his training in Dresden and Vienna. His specialty was the "atmospheric" theater -- essentially a large auditorium wherein the walls were built out to resemble castle battlements, Castillian patios and Turkish gardens, with a strong -- of Sunset Boulevard.

"The Castle" wants to be one of those engaging comedies you can't help but like, a quirky tale about some quirky people who do silly things, yet somehow manage to seem more genuinely human than the rest of us. You know, kind of like "The Full Monty" or "Waking Ned Devine."Trouble is, "The Castle" makes more fun of its characters than it has fun with them; rather than mix equal parts humor and humanity, this Australian import mocks its characters so broadly that it's more parody than comedy.

Castello's is one strange little restaurant. First of all, it is a castle -- a Perma-Stone castle, set on the edge of Potee Street, surrounded by an asphalt parking lot instead of a moat. But it does have a drawbridge.Inside is warm and cozy and not at all castle-like, except for the fire heating one side of the room. And, of course, the fountain. The dining room is decked out in faux brick and faux stained glass, with a red plastic rose at each table. But the butter-yellow tablecloths with soft blue napkins are fetching, and all in all it's a very cheerful room.

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said it's the best sea bass he's ever had, and health-conscious Ray Rice, who's always looking for clean and lean sources of protein, loves it, too. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh recommends the cranberry chicken, and defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano "basically likes anything Italian," says Tenille Moore, director of food service for Baltimore Ravens....

Caught somewhere between courtroom acrimony and a forced truce in the NFL's labor dispute, Ravens wide receiver Derrick Mason celebrated the players' legal victory with a workout and a word of caution Tuesday. "We're still kind of in limbo because the owners want to appeal," the veteran wide receiver said. "Before we bring out the trumpets and the banners, we've got to see what the 8th Circuit Court will have to say. We're confident, but we still understand it can change in the blink of an eye. " The NFL players' trade association, formerly the NFL Players Association, scored a major triumph in Minnesota on Monday when U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson lifted the six-week NFL lockout of its workforce.

Gerry Bailey calls the 13-room Dundalk home her castle. The casual observer might view it as an enchanting woodland home from the yellowed pages of a Victorian children's book, complete with a turret. With the help of her daughter Amy, a real estate agent, she found a home that fit her requirements for a spacious kitchen. "I am a cook; I needed a large kitchen," explained Bailey, who runs her own business, Wonder Woman, which, among other feats of service to the public, gives cooking lessons.

Last week, President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama went to Copenhagen to make a pitch for Chicago's 2016 Olympic bid. The capital of Denmark has never been host to an Olympics, but Nordic neighbors Norway and Sweden have welcomed the world's athletes. This cosmopolitan city's appeal extends beyond the sporting type. Here are five things to do: 1 See the Little Mermaid. : If you're expecting to see Denmark's Statue of Liberty, keep in mind that this is a small country. Appropriately, Den Lille Havfrue, as she's known in Danish, is a small statue, slightly less than life-size, that pays homage to the character created by Hans Christian Andersen.

As visitors take to the cobblestone paths of this town, they are walking along the steps of history. When Vilnius was being built there was an entry fee of one stone per visitor. The collection was used to create the town's walls and roads. Today, entry to the town and many of its historic sites is free. This year Lithuania celebrates its millennium anniversary, and Vilnius styles itself as the European Capital of the World, with its vision to create a city that is open to new ideas and culture.
