2013 began with a very unique occurrence in the world of pro wrestling. On Jan. 6 in Toronto, Ring of Honor and Dragon Gate USA, two very well-respected outfits among professional wrestling fans, saw both their champions in the same ring, facing off against each other. It wasn't exactly as expected. The match that was promoted by independent wrestling outfit Smash Wrestling was to be a 1-on-1 non-title encounter between Kevin Steen (ROH champ) and Johnny Gargano (DGUSA champ)

I remember back in October 1979 when a popular morning disc jockey in Baltimore was crowing after the Orioles were up three games to one in the World Series against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He dedicated the Eagles' “Heartache Tonight,” to Pittsburgh Pirates fans on the morning of Game 5. We all know how that worked out. So I'm not here to be a premature bartender. If you believe in jinxes, just nod politely and move to the end of the bar and I'll talk to everyone else.

Calvert Hall's football team is fully recovered from an injury-riddled 2013 season. The Cardinals proved as much in Friday night's 35-24 win over No. 3 Franklin, the defending state Class 3A champion that returned 18 starters. After Calvert Hall won last year's inaugural meeting between the schools, 24-14, the Indians were determined to take their first win over a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference team, but the Cardinals scored 15 points in the final 6:55 - a safety and rushing touchdowns by Tim Smith and Kevin Thomas - to put the game away.

Few of the reporters could resist the boxing metaphors. Mike Tyson, conqueror of so many men, had been brought down by a teen-age woman. Iron Mike, who had fought his way to the heavyweight championship, lost the biggest decision of his life, 12-0, to a beauty queen.Even after the Indianapolis jury had labeled these two clearly as The Rapist and The Victim, there was an undertone to this story that would forever describe them in another way. The Champ and the Woman Who Brought Him Down.It has been that sort of year.

Score one for The Next Great Champ. A Los Angeles judge cleared the way for Fox TV's new boxing reality series to debut Sept. 7, refusing to grant a preliminary injunction sought by Mark Burnett and Jeffrey Katzenberg, producers of a rival NBC series, The Contender. Burnett and Katzenberg, whose series is scheduled to premiere in November, sought the injunction on the grounds that Fox had violated California boxing regulations in its rush to get Champ on-air before their show. While that was the core of their court case, the real fight was over the claim by producers and NBC that Fox stole the idea for its boxing series from them.

As usual, the Super Bowl champions suffered a drain of talent in the offseason. But that won't stop the Seattle Seahawks from winning a second straight NFL title. Repeating as champion is difficult, so much in fact that the last team to do it was the New England Patriots after the 2003 and 2004 seasons. The Seahawks also lost two offensive starters in free agency, and they cut two on defense to alleviate salary cap concerns. But Seattle is still loaded, especially on defense, which should carry it to the Super Bowl where the Seahawks will defeat either the Denver Broncos or the Patriots from the AFC. The Seahawks have allowed the fewest points in the league the past two seasons.

Throughout the week leading up to the Kentucky Derby, California Chrome's co-owner predicted victory to anyone who'd listen, saying he felt it from his gut and his heart. Coburn, wearing his trademark cowboy hat, sang the same confident tune Wednesday after his champion drew the No. 3 post position for Saturday's Preakness Stakes . His strong belief was echoed in the morning line set by Pimlico handicapper Keith Feustle, which has California Chrome as a massive 3-5 favorite. “I'm great with No. 3,” Coburn said after the evening draw, held on the infield at Pimlico Race Course.

Adversity hit the Chesapeake Bayhawks early during the team's season opener Sunday against the Boston Cannons. And it struck in the worst possible spot. Minutes into the game, Bayhawks goalie Kip Turner (Severn) took a shot to the groin, better described by Turner as "the place you don't want to get hit," and had to leave the game. By the time it ended, the rest of the Bayhawks had taken a beating of their own. Chesapeake was shredded by Cannons midfielder Kevin Buchanan (Calvert Hall)

Goucher's five-year reign as the Landmark Conference regular-season men's lacrosse champion came to an end when the Gophers fell to visiting Scranton, 8-7, at Gopher Stadium in Towson on Saturday. The loss was doubly damaging for Goucher (6-7 overall, 4-2 Landmark), which went from potentially being the top seed in the conference tournament to finishing as the No. 3 seed. Susquehanna (9-7, 5-1) — which claimed last year's tournament crown and edged Catholic, 7-6, in overtime Saturday — captured the regular-season title for the first time in school history and will have home-field advantage in the tourney.

There are several reasons that, according to at least one assessment, 2013 timber champion Foyle has been installed as the favorite heading into the 118th running of the Maryland Hunt Cup on Saturday in Glyndon. Gates open at 11 a.m. for a 4 pm. post time for the $75,000 steeplechase race, which will run on what is generally regarded as one of the most daunting courses in the sport. For one thing, Foyle will have a new mount. Highly regarded British amateur rider Sam Waley-Cohen replaces James Slater, who guided the Merriefield Farm 9-year-old to a photo finish in the $30,000 Grand National last weekend in Butler, losing by a nose to Spencer Road.
