Nationally, the highest-rated shows among young adults in April and May were “The Big Bang Theory” on CBS, “Modern Family” on ABC and “The Voice” on NBC. But in Baltimore, those viewers preferred a different show: Baltimore Orioles telecasts on MASN. When Jim Palmer and Gary Thorne can trump Blake Shelton and Sofia Vergara, maybe there really is “Orioles magic.” Since the Orioles started playing never-say-die comeback baseball the second half of last season, TV viewing has spiked.

Yikes! The advocacy group Demos reports that a two-income couple - earning a median income over their careers - spends an average of $154,794 during their working lives on 401(k) fees. Fees, Demos says, eats up nearly one-third of their investment returns. A higher income couple pays even more in fees: $277,969. 401(k) fees for too long have been shrouded in mystery.

For almost three centuries, Eunice Williams' story has been a tantalizing historical footnote.In 1703, 7-year-old Eunice, daughter of a prominent New England cleric, was abducted by marauding Indians. She, her family and scores of residents were captured in a bloody raid on Deerfield, Mass., and carried off into French Canada. "Massacre," the locals cried, mourning the 50 murdered.Over time, the captives returned -- some escaped, other were bartered away, some were released. But not Eunice.

WORLD GONE WRONGBob Dylan (Columbia 57590) In some ways, the most interesting thing about Bob Dylan's "World Gone Wrong" isn't the way he recasts folk classics like "Two Soldiers" and "Delia," but the way he describes the songs in his liner notes. After all, it's one thing to hear him stomp through the ragtime rhythms of "Stack-a-Lee," something else entirely to read that Stack "is not some egotistical degraded existentialist dionysian idiot," and that "the Authentic alternative lifestyle [is]

The Baltimore-based officers of the Cable Ship Resolute, who are working in the United Kingdom this winter, watched this year's Super Bowl at the Walkabout Pub in Bristol in southwest England. It was one of half a dozen venues in that city featuring Super Bowl parties. The place was packed and the locals were very much into the game. The room was pretty evenly split between Ravens and 49ers fans, with our table of 10 mostly from Baltimore. The game started at 11:30 p.m. local time and went until 3:30 a.m. but it was well worth it. It's great to see American football thriving over here, and it was even better to see the Ravens take the Lombardi trophy.

College football may be the sport of legendary institutions, but "NCAA Football 13" is all about individual stars. As we glimpse in the game's downloadable demo, the "Heisman Challenge" mode repackages the existing "Road to Glory" mode into a flagship addition to the game. By co-opting recent Heisman winners like Robert Griffin, III and legends like Desmond Howard "NCAA" is geared toward a single-player experience that follows the journey on the path to stardom. While there's certainly more to the game that what is available in the demo, the ability to play three games with six different teams allows a sneak peek at what awaits gridiron gamers next month.
