Former two-sport standout and current NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders, in town for Thursday night's Ravens home game against Cleveland, stopped by Oriole Park at Camden Yards to take batting practice with the Orioles. Some players got a kick out of it -- left-hander Troy Patton asked Sanders for his autograph -- and Orioles manager Buck Showalter, who was Sanders' manager with the Double-A Albany-Colonie Yankees in 1989, reminisced about Sanders' athletic ability, saying that watching Sanders leg out a triple is "still one of the prettiest things I've ever seen.

Before day two of the first annual NFL Pro Bowl Draft began tonight, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker took to his Twitter account to campaign for one of the game's captains, Deion Sanders, to take him with his first selection. Tucker had to wait a little longer than that, but he was ultimately drafted by Sanders' team, which will oppose fellow Hall of Famer Jerry Rice's squad Sunday night at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii. Tucker joins his other two Pro Bowl teammates - guard Marshal Yanda and rush linebacker Terrell Suggs - on Sanders' team, which is being captained by Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.

I wasn't there for the 7 a.m. start, but I've seen almost all of the NFL Network's Super Bowl Sunday pre-game coverage. And as of 1 p.m. (EST), I am here to tell you it is outstanding. Warren Sapp, elected into the Hall of Fame Saturday, brought even more energy and joy than usual to the telecast. He was inspired. Michael Irvin was stoked to Super Bowl level, and Steve Mariucci was better than he has ever been. Deion Sanders: superb. Melissa Stark: through the roof in poise, knowledge and the 10,000 skills a show host needs to make a TV conversation seem like the easiest and most natural thing in the world.

Flanked by two teammates with Louisiana ties - Ed Reed and Alan Ricard - Ravens cornerback Deion Sanders challenged his professional sports colleagues to donate $1,000 to help with the relief effort from the wreckage caused by Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. Sanders asked each team from the NFL, NBA, Major League Baseball and the NHL to elect a captain to serve as the point man in collecting the money. Sanders said he will oversee the project, and his goal is to give at least $1.5 million from the NFL players alone to the Red Cross.

The best way to judge how important a dangerous return specialist is for the Ravens is to take a little history lesson. In the eight seasons since the franchise arrived from Cleveland, the Ravens have had eight punt returns for touchdowns (including two in a game twice) and gone 5-1 in those games. The change to shifty rookie B.J. Sams and the arrival of Deion Sanders, who has some of the most spectacular returns in NFL history, could help revive a position that has kept the Ravens on edge the past couple seasons.

For quarterback Mark Rypien, the decision to walk away from the game he loved was an easy call. And three years later, after dealing with a family tragedy that had consumed him in his time away from pro football, the idea of returning to the playing field at the ripe age of 38 grabbed him and refused to let go. Rypien, who already had won a championship ring and a Super Bowl Most Valuable Player award with the Washington Redskins 10 years earlier in...

This brash young cabernet is a bit raw and unpolished, but it's a lot of fun in its bumptious way. It's not very complex and it needs some time in the glass to tone down, but it has a kind of in-your-face swagger that's fun, though hardly classic. (A wine for Deion Sanders fans?) What makes it work is the flavor -- lots of blackcurrant and cedar. Give it two or three years and it could acquire class.

DEION SANDERS' INTERCEPTION, TD Score: Tied 3-3PLAY Quarter: First Situation: Bills' ball, third-and-nine at the Ravens' 45 Play: Bills quarterback Drew Bledsoe (11) is in the shotgun, flanked by running backs Willis McGahee (21) and Travis Henry (20). Bledsoe rolls to his right and fakes the pitch to Henry. Hoping the defense has bought the fake, Bledsoe turns around and throws a screen pass to McGahee on his left. The high throw goes through McGahee's hands and is deflected into the air by safety Chad Williams (49)

Sunday's 23-20 loss to the New England Patriots in Sunday's AFC championship game cost the Ravens a trip to Super Bowl XLVI, but a pair of individual performances earned some praise from NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders. The former cornerback who played for the Ravens, Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers was very complimentary of quarterback Joe Flacco's showing, which included 306 passing yards and two touchdowns. “Joe Flacco really outplayed [New England's]

Every team in the NFL covets speed. Al Davis can't get enough of it. Wide receivers have to have it. Defensive backs' job security depends on it. The best teams all have it in generous supply. The teams that don't, all draft high. The Ravens, who have their share, are always trying to procure more. This offseason, they signed free agent Domonique Foxworth, one of the fastest cornerbacks in the league, to join Fabian Washington, who once ran the 40-yard dash in 4.29 seconds, in the secondary.

Hordes of unruly celebrity worshippers have never been a problem at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. No swooning teens, no throngs of paparazzi. In fact, it's pretty safe to say the threat to public order posed by celebrities traveling through the airport is probably next to nothing. Finally, we know why. Turns out the Maryland Transportation Authority Police are on top of that action. A half-dozen officers have been trained to provide an armed escort to celebrities and other dignitaries as a free service to assist their travels.

It's more than midway through January and I think we've all finally recovered from year-in-review features plastered throughout the media. We're all forward-thinkers, right, so it's time we start to look ahead. Goodbye 2005, hello 2006. Lucky for you, I've seen the script and can provide you this sneak preview of just what they'll be saying. ... Feb. 1: "I've sincerely enjoyed my time with the Ravens' organization, but it's time for me to pursue other endeavors. The Olympics are later this month and I have a curling dream to fulfill."

In a twisted way, Ravens coach Brian Billick is viewing the predicament his team is in - and the overwhelming league history that dictates this season will be nothing special - an unexpected, but not wholly dreaded, challenge. Since 1990, only 17 of the 121 teams that have lost their first two games have made the playoffs, or roughly 14 percent. Granted, the Ravens, with three former Defensive Player of the Year award winners (Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Deion Sanders) and a former 2,000-yard rusher in Jamal Lewis, figure to be more talented than the vast majority of those teams, but that has not been evident on the field yet, especially in Sunday's 25-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Dallas (0-2) at Washington (1-1) Time: 9 tonight, chs. 2, 7. Line: Redskins by 10. Vs. spread: Cowboys 1-1; Redskins 0-2. Series: Cowboys lead 45-31-2. Last meeting: Cowboys won, 38-20, on Oct. 24, 1999, at Dallas. Outlook: Dallas is in crisis, and Washington might be approaching one. Bored viewers can keep score on whether ABC has more shots of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones or Redskins owner Dan Snyder. One of Snyder's millionaires, Deion Sanders, got burned badly last Sunday in Detroit; another, Michael Westbrook is out for the season with a knee injury.
