I am completely disappointed in Mayor Sheila Dixon. This woman has the nerve to continue with her smug attitude of entitlement and indifference - disgusting! No matter how much her supporters say the charges and prosecution against her were petty, Mayor Dixon is what she is: a petty thief. She has completely forgotten where she came from, but we in Baltimore are not fooled. I am tired of seeing her on television with these transparent publicity stunts. She needs to go away like Tiger Woods and let the city heal from this embarrassment.

The new fall network TV season begins this week, and one of the most highly touted dramas of the year is one of the biggest disappointments. So big is the failure of “Madam Secretary,” a new CBS drama starring Tea Leoni as Secretary of State Elizabeth Faulkner McCord, that it makes me angry. Usually I like TV shows that rattle my emotional cage, but not this one, which premieres at 8:30 p.m. Sunday. What maddens me about “Madam Secretary” is the lie it's selling about Washington and the people who work there.

Towson's 54-0 loss to West Virginia on Saturday night may have been stunning to Tigers fans, but it brought on a different feeling from coach Rob Ambrose. Ambrose, who had not been shut out since Nov. 6, 2010 when Delaware beat Towson, 48-0, was critical of his team's effort against the Mountaineers, saying, “We cleared up some of the fog of the fakers. We found out the guys who talk the talk that don't walk the walk. They won't see the field. We will play the guys that love football and love each other.” During his weekly conference call organized by the Colonial Athletic Association, Ambrose elaborated on that comment.

BATON ROUGE, La. -- If we need to get more people interested in nature, as a recent national report suggests, then maybe it's time we acknowledge a truth that few observers, even those of us who consider ourselves devoted naturalists, seem willing to admit: Nature is often very boring. What I mean to say is that nature can often be boring when measured against our long-standing human desire for compelling narrative and catchy endings - a cultural impulse that drives everything from books to movies to TV shows to video games.

ATLANTA - Want an indication of how much Maryland's offense is struggling right now? Ralph Friedgen said yesterday that he's never experienced a season like this in his coaching career. Sure, there have been struggles at various stops, but the Terps' current offensive mediocrity seems to have surpassed them all. "I'm really disappointed with the way we handled things, because it wasn't anything we haven't seen before," Friedgen said after Maryland's 7-3 loss to Georgia Tech on Thursday night.

Orioles owner Peter Angelos watched from his box on the club level as another expensive team came up one step short of the World Series, but there was none of the postgame rancor that accompanied last year's American League Championship Series loss to the rival New York Yankees."

COLLEGE PARK - One of Ralph Friedgen's recurring themes this year, through three weeks of practice and two weeks of games, has been patience. The word finds its way into most of his public comments these days, with Friedgen asking both the fans and media for it when assessing Maryland's young football team. He has also, on occasion, had to remind himself to be patient, something that doesn't come naturally to the 57-year-old coach, now in his fourth year as the Terps' head man. Saturday night's 45-22 win over Temple was one of those times, and it was easy to see the conflicting emotions in Friedgen's face after the game.

Don't bother asking the Ravens about redemption. They're not interested in framing the 2014 season that way. In fact, they'd just as soon not discuss last season - 8-8 record, no playoffs, lousy statistics for big-money players, off-field embarrassments - at all. “That is for you guys to talk about,” wide receiver Torrey Smith said, summing up the general outlook. “Last year was last year.” But with a team built largely around the same core of star players and decision-makers, the Ravens know questions loom.

Not sure what the over-under line was on the length of Ray Lewis's speech after the Ravens unveiled his statue on Thursday morning at M&T Bank Stadium, but no one was complaining after he talked for 31 minutes about his life, his family, his career and his teammates. Lewis has always been a great orator, so it was just a matter of striking the right balance between honoring his own legacy and honoring the other people who contributed to it. He did that well, recognizing important family members and pivotal figures in his career among the large group of invited guests that included the family of Johnny Unitas, olympian Michael Phelps and the mother of former Ravens quarterback Steve McNair.

By the middle of November, the Johns Hopkins football team had completed a perfect 10-0 regular season, captured a fifth straight Centennial Conference title and earned a third consecutive trip to the Division III playoffs. But all those good vibes evaporated in a 29-24 first-round loss to Wesley at Homewood Field, a game in which the Blue Jays surrendered the decisive 33-yard touchdown pass with 13 seconds left. Junior running back Brandon Cherry said he needed just a couple days to put the loss behind him. But the Parkville native and Boys' Latin graduate acknowledged that he watched the game several times to see what he could have done differently.

CHICAGO - A day after being demoted to the bullpen for the first time in his major league career, the disappointment in Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez's voice was unmistakable. When Jimenez signed a four-year, $50 million deal with the Orioles in February, he said he wanted to help the club get back to the World Series. And he said before Wednesday's game against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field that he will do everything he can to keep that goal. “It's a little bit disappointing, it's a little bit hard, but like I say, we're all here for the same thing, and that's hopefully getting us into the World Series,” Jimenez said.

It has been a difficult season for Orioles slugger Chris Davis, but the first baseman hit two milestones Friday night with one swing. With his sixth-inning solo shot, Davis picked up his 20th homer of the season and 150th of his career. He was asked Saturday about whether No. 150 meant something to him. “I think it's a good number. It's not real high. It's not low,” he said. “But I think it is just one of those things that you can look back at the body of work and really appreciate everything that has gone into it.” Davis hit a major league-best 53 homers last season but has struggled much of this year.

IRVINE, Calif. - As he moves forward with his comeback, Michael Phelps can't always measure his progress the way he used to: in victories. Take the unusual position he found himself in Saturday at the Phillips 66 National Championships. The night before, he had lost by a whisker in the 100-meter butterfly, the race he has focused on most since coming out of retirement in April. Yet he had secured a place on the U.S. team for the Pan Pacific Championships this month in Australia. Phelps hadn't fretted over making a national team since he was 15 and seeking a spot in the 2000 Olympics.

COLLEGE PARK - Nothing has been said. Deon Long has just seen the unmistakable looks of disgust Maryland coach Randy Edsall gives him whenever Long makes a mistake. The wide receiver said he was better and sharper Wednesday compared to the first two sessions of preseason practice for the Terrapins. But even he acknowledged that he has had a lackluster start to camp. Long uncharacteristically dropped passes during the first two practices. He jumped offsides twice Monday and Tuesday, which drew some of those looks from Edsall.
