Hopefully, the Ravens packed some long johns.  It may be unseasonably mild in Baltimore today, but Ravens are facing frigid temperatures and the possibility of light snow when the team goes head-to-head against the Broncos in Denver this afternoon. According to the National Weather Service, a push of arctic air is chilling the mountain region with highs only reaching between 18 to 23 degrees today. As of this morning, the temperature is well below freezing at just 1 degrees in Denver.

NEW YORK - Orioles manager Buck Showalter likes to talk about how the Orioles are a loose group that never takes itself too seriously. Case in point: the eighth inning Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy finally homered, his first of the year after hitting 25 in 2013. It snapped a streak of 339 homerless at-bats for Hardy. As he was trotting around the bases, he noticed his teammates weren't moving. They weren't going to come and greet him. He would be getting the silent treatment, something the Orioles do on occasion to mess with a teammate.

The season finale kicks off with Gretchen and Slade arriving fashionably late to Vicki's Winter Wonderland Party. They act like everything is fine and dandy with the group until Slade gives a backhanded compliment to Lydia. Soon after her entrance, Gretchen confronts Ryan about him not allowing Brooks over Vicki's place. She questions why he has any right or say as to who Vicki can or can't have over her own house. Soon after, Lydia's pot-head mother arrives to the party. Sorry Judy, but there is no "green" at this white party.

CARELESS communicators rejoice! Someone has developed an Internet-wide e-mail program that allows senders to retract their messages, whether the receiver has already read them or not. Quick, pull back that white-hot spew you sent to your best friend yesterday. Stop Mom from saving all those collegiate money-whine messages, so your kids will never find them 20 years from now. Pull back that revealing photo you sent to a potential love interest who turned into a dud. Bigstring.com (which charges a fee)

MEASURING THE differences between men and women is, at best, an inexact science. Some make interplanetary comparisons. But Mars (men) and Venus (women) are only 100 million miles apart - give or take a cold shoulder - and that's far too short a distance. Better to explore that quintessentially American social laboratory known as ... the parking lot. As any good automaker knows - and probably General Motors, too - car tastes vary. But that's putting it kindly. A recent survey performed for NOP World, an international marketing research firm, shows just how different they are. The highest-rated car among men?

Speed skating gold medalist Shani Davis has every right to be grumpy. He got the Hank Aaron treatment last week, though in the modern age the racial epithets come via anonymous e-mail rather than from the bleachers or the post office. Davis has a right to think that there are lots of crummy people out there. He also has a right to be a little defensive after all the criticism he received in the media and from his teammates for skipping a team event to concentrate on the individual one that he dominated to become the first African-American man to win a gold medal at the Winter Olympics.

It's time to swing into holiday party mode. But before you RSVP for that black-tie bash, you may want to rethink the trusty little black dress with the scoop neckline that kept your dance card full for the past few years. The latest entrance-maker has a different slant.Fashion designers have fallen back on their geometry. They've broken up the body line by skewing symmetry with clean cutouts and sharp angles. Just by redirecting a shoulder line, the look of the moment shifts to another dimension.

Before yesterday, area NHL fans might have been singing a sad tune about the lack of games on local television. In fact, it could have gone like this (with apologies to The Who's "Baba O'Riley"):Out here on the dial,you could search for a while,and never find a little hockey.It may not have been right,and not seemed too bright.As a matter of fact, it was downright schlocky.Hockey wasteland, it's only hockey wasteland.Those days are over, though. Home Team Sports yesterday reached an agreement with SportsChannel America to carry SCA's NHL package.

WHEN Gov. Bill Clinton was campaigning in Maryland early last month, the Democratic presidential nominee placed two phone calls to Gov. William Donald Schaefer. The calls were never accepted or returned.When Mr. Schaefer sponsored a fundraiser for the Maryland Democratic Party's coordinated campaign last week, he addressed the importance of electing a strong congressional TC delegation he can work with, but he never mentioned Mr. Clinton or Al Gore.And at a recent news conference, Mr. Schaefer declined to express a preference for president except to say that H. Ross Perot ought to go fly a kite (or whatever Texas billionaires do)

Adele, the much buzzed-about British pop-soul singer, wasn't even old enough to buy her favorite lager in an American bar when 19, her debut album, became a hit last year in the United States. Named for her age at the time, the CD was a much bigger smash in her native England, where it topped the charts and quickly went platinum. Critical acclaim for her elastic, strikingly mature vocals has abounded on both sides of the pond. Next month, the 20-year-old artist born Adele Laurie Blue Adkins will compete for four Grammys, including nods for best new artist and song of the year.

Now that temperatures - and gas prices - are falling, you might be tempted to exile your bike to the basement or garage until warmer days return. But there's no need. With the right equipment and care, you can continue commuting on two wheels or hitting the trails on weekends. The key, bike enthusiasts say, is the proper clothing - and layering. Start with your head. Penny Trouttner, owner of Light Street Cycles in Federal Hill, recommends a skull cap or a balaclava, a head covering that also protects your neck and fits easily under a helmet.

The first thing you need to know about recent energy-market gyrations and winter heating costs is to say "no thanks" to BGE Home's fixed-price natural gas offer of $1.599 per therm. You wouldn't pay $5 a gallon for gasoline. Don't pay $1.599 a therm for natural gas. Energy of all kinds has gotten much cheaper in the past two months. Prices have a good shot at falling further. Whether you heat with gas, oil or electricity, make sure any purchases from independent marketers reflect the price declines since the beginning of July.

So this has certainly been a cheery winter around here with the economy in the tank, tax hikes, BGE rate increases, gas prices soaring and the price of a gallon of milk costing more than a cow. I see there was a big boat show in town over the weekend. How many people showed up for that, 15? And 10 of those were probably on the cleaning staff. Who can afford a boat these days? I bet the place was so quiet they started vacuuming and putting away the chairs an hour after the show opened.

Tuesday, the Oscar speculation begins in earnest. That's because the most popular Oscar bellwether, the Golden Globes, are being handed out Monday. Though the two award shows don't always agree -- Brokeback Mountain and Walk the Line won Globes last year, while Crash won the Oscar -- their outcomes tend to reflect each other more often than not. Whoever and whatever walks away with a Globe on Monday night will almost automatically become the Oscar favorite. Certainly, some Globe predictions are in order, and we'll get to that momentarily.

WASHINGTON -- The problem with gloves, Congressman Cipher is thinking to himself, is all the things you can't do while you're wearing them.You can't sign letters to your constituents. You can't type notes to your staff. You can't even button your cardigan -- you have to take off your gloves to button your cardigan! How crazy is that?"Crazy," Congressman Cipher mutters, and watches his breath vaporize around him. But then, the whole thing is crazy. It's not as if he did anything wrong.This is Congressman Wally T. (Flip)

TURIN, Italy -- Slovenian snowboarder Rok Flander was heading out to a hockey game with his teammates last night, but only because he couldn't get tickets to figure skating. "I like figure skating a lot," he said. "It's a nice sport. They have beautiful, nice girls." His buddies chuckled. Snowboarders. In fact, the buzz - or lack of it - inside the athletes' village mirrors the attitude back home as evidenced by TV ratings, which peaked during the Nancy Kerrigan-Tonya Harding saga but have steadily lost their muscle.
