There was Ray Rice going untouched for a 7-yard touchdown run. Torrey Smith sprinting free behind the Oakland Raiders' defense and connecting with Joe Flacco for a 47-yard score. And punter/holder Sam Koch encountering very little resistance during his 7-yard touchdown scamper on a fake field goal. And just when it seemed like it couldn't get any worse for the hapless and defenseless Oakland Raiders, the Ravens' Jacoby Jones took a kickoff 5 yards deep in the end zone and both he - and his lead blocker Anthony Allen - sprinted down the right sideline with nary an opposing player in sight.

It's early in the season, and usually there are questions about the offense, but my how times have changed. There are no concerns about Joe Flacco or the pass vs. run ratio. No one is second-guessing Cam Cameron's play calling or challenging the Ravens' effectiveness inside the red zone. The bad buzz is about the Ravens' defense, especially against the run. The Ravens allowed Cincinnati to rush for 127 yards in the season opener and that would not be a big deal in most cities except during the last decade few teams have rushed for more than 100 yards against the Ravens.

National Crime Prevention Month sneaked up on me. We were halfway through October before I knew it was the month that, according to the nation's locksmiths, I should be making my home a tougher target for burglars.The news caught me with my defenses down. The lock on the gate on our backyard fence was out of service. When it stopped working I had carried it down to my neighborhood locksmith, who looked at it and decided that it was time to retire the old lock from service.I bought a new lock and the locksmith "rekeyed" it so that the keys that opened the old lock would work on the new lock.

The Ravens moved from the second tier of possible playoff contenders into the top group yesterday with a 27-0 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. This wasn't just a victory, but a total beat down, easily the Ravens' best game of the season. Move over, Indianapolis Colts, San Diego Chargers and New England Patriots. It wasn't just the margin of victory that made this win so significant, but also that the Ravens are showing signs of developing into a quality team. The Steelers aren't the Tennessee Titans or Atlanta Falcons, but the defending Super Bowl champions who faced possible playoff elimination if they lost yesterday.

Top-ranked Notre Dame Prep maintained its superiority with some opportunistic scoring over the past few weeks, but the host Blazers put a complete game together yesterday in beating their toughest opponent to date. Beth Koloup and Caitlyn McFadden provided early goals, Kayce Blandford controlled much of the middle and the defense did the rest to get past No. 3 John Carroll, 2-0, in Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference soccer. "I would consider this the biggest win of all," said Koloup, "because John Carroll is No. 3 and we just proved that we are No. 1. This is the best we've ever played.

WASHINGTON - The advancing of years are, in theory, supposed to mellow a person, smooth out his rough edges and give him a different and maybe kinder perspective on life. If that's the case, Bill Laimbeer apparently didn't get the memo. Laimbeer, the former Detroit Pistons "Bad Boy" turned coach of the Detroit Shock of the WNBA, is no more mellow, no less rough and certainly no kinder than he ever was. And if you listen to some of his coaching competitors around the league, he is no less arrogant than he used to be. The difference is the Shock can back up his cockiness, having clinched the best record in the Eastern Conference heading into next week's playoffs, with the possibility of having the best record in the league.

DETROIT - General Motors Corp., the biggest automaker, said yesterday that it plans to start using V-8 engines for large pickup trucks and sport-utility vehicles in 2004 that save fuel by using only half the cylinders during normal driving. The engines will boost the vehicles' fuel economy 8 percent based on U.S. regulators' test methods and as much as 25 percent in some actual driving conditions, General Motors said in a statement. The automaker plans to increase production from 150,000 in 2004 to almost 1.5 million in 2007.

A while back I decided to investigate life in the high speed lane -- to drive the PC equivalent of a nitromethane-fueled dragster.It feels wonderful. And with the prices falling as fast as horsepower is increasing, you can do it without mortgaging the house and kids.The machine I tried out was a Packard Bell Pentium 90 multimedia outfit, which packs a lot of punch for a price in the $2,500 to $3,000 range.The machine uses Intel's fastest microprocessor, and that's why I held off writing this review, even though I like the computer.

North Carroll's baseball team is riding a wave. Undefeated at 4-0, including extra-inning wins over Frederick (8-6) and Catonsville (3-2), a 2-1 thriller over South Carroll and a 10-3 trouncing of Thomas Johnson, the Panthers are getting the right blend of pitching, hitting and defense. The defense is making all the simple plays, and the pitching is avoiding big innings. "I can't say enough about the pitching," Panthers coach Denny Snyder said. Sean Hampt outdueled South Carroll ace Bo Sauter, going seven innings and striking out 13 while allowing one run. Chris Painter pitched 4 2/3 innings against Catonsville and was picked up by Ryan Myers, who finished off the Comets with 3 1/3 shutout innings to earn the win. Painter then went seven innings against Thomas Johnson, allowing seven hits and one earned run. Wednesday, Ryan Myers pitched 4 2/3 more innings of shutout relief, allowing three hits to earn the win over Frederick.
