A few weeks ago there was laughter around the NFL because the primetime game Thanksgiving Day featured two losing teams: the Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers. But now, there is a renewed excitement. Both teams have losing records at 5-6, but the winner moves closer to securing the sixth and final spot for the AFC playoffs, and stays within striking distance of the AFC North leading Cincinnati Bengals. For the loser of Thursday's game, the season practically ends. "Stipulations are high," Ravens tight end Ed Dickson said.

The new meter reader uniforms are here! Tomorrow afternoon, Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. shows off its duds au courant, with changes to reflect BGE's new logo and "new image." (Didn't know they had one.) This is OK by me, with two stipulations -- no Michael Jackson-style epaulets, and no gray caps when the team goes on the road. (By the way, BGE will donate its old meter reader uniforms to Christopher Place, the shelter for homeless men in Baltimore. Logos have been removed from the donated duds.

There have been plenty of times this season when it would have been easy to sum up another Orioles loss by looking at just one play or one statistic. But not Friday night, not when there was so much bad baseball to choose from, not when the Orioles all but gift-wrapped the Nationals their seventh straight win and presented it to them with a tidy bow. The Orioles' latest eyesore of a performance -- this one resulting in a 8-4 loss in front of an announced 35,562 at Nationals Park -- featured another critical error by third baseman Mark Reynolds, whose errant throw led to the Nationals' four-run fifth inning off rookie Zach Britton, who had seemingly been in complete control.

Big Brother 8 featured its classiest moment on Sunday night, when the contestants were required to strip naked for a luxury challenge. Most of the women weren't amused, but once they found out the prize -- a two-minute shopping spree for new clothes -- they all got over it, and their team won. Who needs principles when designer duds are at stake?

David Gerstman says crape myrtles in his Baltimore neighborhood usually blossom together. This year, "some ... seem to be in full bloom. Others have only had sporadic blooms. What could account for this strange behavior?" Vanishing bees? Drought? Alan Thomson, nursery manager at Valley View Farms in Cockeysville, blames winter damage. Crape myrtles are vulnerable this far north. After a mild start to our winter, overnight lows in late January and early February sank to the teens, even single digits, turning myrtle buds to duds.

Urban fashion is sometimes decried as too much of the former and not enough of the latter. But urbanwear is its own kind of fashion; it has its own look, feel and rules. And it's clear when urbanwear is being done right, and when it's all wrong. Austin Walton of East Baltimore shows us here that Seventh Avenue isn't the only place where fashionable duds are commonplace. In this case, we found city-chic style just off North Avenue.

Baltimore's an Edgar Allan Poe kind of town, never more so than in 2009, with the Poe House, a football team named for his most famous poem and a yearlong celebration honoring the macabre author's death. Naturally, Baltimore's repertory movie house would want to feature a Poe movie at some point, if only to bask in the reflected glow of this long-term love affair. Problem is, when it comes to movies based on Poe's stories, there's a curious dearth of material. There's certainly a dearth of good material.

Opening Day 2008 in Baltimore started so well. The persistent rain let up in time for the fans to give an enthusiastic welcome to the new-look Orioles, saving one of their loudest pre-game greetings for new center fielder Adam Jones, who described his reception and run down the orange carpet as bone-chilling. Then, three of the most prominent holdovers got the home team off to a promising start, with Kevin Millar smacking a first-inning double through the damp air, driving in Brian Roberts and Nick Markakis.

Few big-studio movies that are lavishly promoted and favorably reviewed arrive dead on arrival at the box office. But Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, Judd Apatow and Jake Kasdan's volcanically funny spoof of musical biopics like Coal Miner's Daughter failed to attract audiences from its first showings a week ago. Could it be that audiences just don't want to see wiseacre moviemakers lampoon Very Important Movies? From that delicious parody of airborne disaster pictures, Airplane!, to the abysmal Scary Movie spoofs of horror films, audiences have lined up to see stupid plot conventions shot down.

Carrie Underwood is a pretty girl with a pretty voice, singing pretty songs about, presumably, pretty people. And that makes the whole package -- including her new album, Carnival Ride, like the multiplatinum, award-winning smash before it (Some Hearts) -- all kind of nice, if predictable. Unlike her fellow American Idol winners, Underwood feels no need to break away from the hit-making fold. In fact, she embraces it. That means Carnival Ride goes down extraordinarily easy -- lots of lush, inspirational ballads that make the most of her gorgeous voice and a handful of rock-tinged up-tempo numbers about getting out of town or following your dreams, where she channels the Dixie Chicks, without all that, you know, messy political stuff.

It was one of those nights when the goal seemed to have a shield across it and, as a result, the Blast's most extensive homestand of the season was launched in inauspicious fashion at 1st Mariner Arena. The Blast outshot visiting Milwaukee, but the Wave received better production from its chances and scored a 7-2 Major Indoor Soccer League victory last night before 6,015. Coach Danny Kelly was incensed by his team's performance, which marked only its second loss in six games at the arena and was the sixth in the past seven games overall.
