Gosh knows, there's been enough Elvis on TV this week to keep all but the most rabid fans happy. But if you've managed to avoid the deluge so far, or if you're trying to decide which is the best program to watch today, set your dials to MPT.The documentary "Elvis '56" (8 p.m.-9: 30 p.m., Channels 22 and 67) captures the King at his undisputed best, at the beginning. Elvis in 1956 was practically an unstoppable force: At 21, he had his first No. 1 hit ("Heartbreak Hotel") and his next four ("I Want You, I Need You, I Love You," "Don't Be Cruel," "Hound Dog" and "Love Me Tender")

On the Carolina Panthers' first play from the line of scrimmage, Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs blew by left tackle Byron Bell and wrapped up quarterback Cam Newton like a bundle of hay. Suggs didn't get the sack, but Newton's pass was hurried and fell incomplete. For the rest of the game Suggs was either in Newton's face or in his head. So was fellow outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil and defensive end-outside linebacker turned nose guard Pernell McPhee. For the first time all season, the Ravens kept consistent pressure on a quarterback as Newton left M&T Bank Stadium grimacing and with a limp.

When someone, somehow, made off with the giant Elvis that stood — in full pelvis-shaking glory — atop a Pulaski Highway diner, Scunny McCusker felt a pang of sympathy in his gut, where a peanut butter and banana sandwich might ordinarily be. As owner of the long-Elvis'ed Nacho Mama's in Canton Square, he knows that owning an Elvis statue in this town isn't easy. Consider what his has been through. Someone ripped off one arm, then someone else the other, leaving it an altogether armless "Elvis de Milo."

Former Pro Bowl outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil is hoping to crank up the Ravens' languishing pass rush. Through three games, the Ravens have recorded just three sacks with two of them registered by Dumervil during a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens (2-1) are tied for 27th in the NFL in sacks. Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs has zero sacks this season and just one sack in his past 11 games, the last one coming last December when he tagged down New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

DAVID Halberstam's new book about the 1950s -- titled "Th Fifties," believe it or not -- makes them feel heavier with significance than they felt to me while they were still in progress. This shows once again how hard it is to see the forest when you spend 10 years up to your eyeballs in trees.From his commanding vantage high upon a peak in the faraway 1990s, Mr. Halberstam can see, for instance, that Elvis Presley was one of the most important phenomena of the 1950s, in a class with the invention of the hydrogen bomb.

Over the past five years or so, I've attended a lot of weddings (including my own). It's so much fun to see how each bride and groom make the day unique. There were those who mixed colored sand in a keepsake jar, shared handwritten vows promising fidelity, laughter and even ChapStick, and those who set up an informal photo booth at their reception. One bride and groom departed their reception by boat; another couple borrowed lines from “The Princess Bride” and opted for instrumental Beatles songs for their procession.

When Elvis Presley died in 1977, he left behind a legacy on film. Though often uninspired and formulaic, his movies were fun, fluffy bursts of brain candy that continue to entertain generation after generation. Here is a list of his feature films:"Love Me Tender" (1956): Two brothers fight for the love of the same girl during the Civil War. Elvis' first (and probably most touching) film."Jailhouse Rock" (1957): While in jail for manslaughter, a teen-ager learns to play the guitar. After he's released, he develops into a top recording star.

Elvis has left the building. More specifically, a 7-foot-tall statue of the king appears to have been stolen from atop the Happy Day Diner in Rosedale, where he'd stood for nearly a decade. Customers alerted owners Maria and Dimitrios Pigiaditis to the missing statue Sunday morning, and they filed a report with the Baltimore County Police. Elvis was bolted to the roof, and the thieves apparently broke him off, leaving behind part of his feet. The couple reviewed surveillance tapes, which they have turned over to police, and saw a white van pull up overnight Wednesday, when they think the theft occurred.

I SEE where the U.S. Postal Service plans to issue a stamp honoring Elvis Presley, which is a very hip move, although not one free of controversy.Some people objected to the idea because they were put off by The King's lifestyle, particularly in his later years when he apparently sat around Graceland swallowing fistfuls of pills and ripping through pack after pack of Twinkies.Me, I have nothing but fond memories of Elvis, especially since one of his songs inspired me to kiss a girl for the very first time.

THE LONG national nightmare is over: Zachary Taylor died of natural causes and NOT as the result of someone slipping him an arsenic cocktail or dropping a piano on his head from 12 stories up or whatever it was that that writer was hinting at.Certainly the news out of Louisville has done much to calm the American psyche.Was it me or did it seem that everywhere you went in recent weeks, people were huddled around TV sets and radios, clamoring for the latest info on the exhumation of the 12th president of the United States?

Veteran strong-side linebacker Elvis Dumervil arrived at his second training camp with the Ravens last week bigger than he did the previous year, but said Thursday that he's adapting to his added bulk well thus far. “It was a little adjustment, but I think I'm on the right track, so I feel good about it,” Dumervil said Thursday. “[I'm] just trying to maximize every opportunity in practice, in training camp, so by Week 1, we'll be hitting and ready to roll.” Dumervil said he added weight - he's now listed at 253 pounds - for physical and mental reasons.

Tonight is partner switch night and Julianne Hough is a guest judge. Maybe she'll snark on Mark Ballas some more. I loved that. The opening number has the pros dancing while the stars make their entrances one-by-one, without partners. Drew is in a gold lamé suit and I approve wholeheartedly. It's very reminiscent of what Elvis Presley wore on the cover of "50,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong. " We'll find out later if that's intentional. Julianne is wearing a weird top/dress that has a boob window.

As the Ravens started their final full-scale practice before Sunday's showdown against the New England Patriots at M&T Bank Stadium, quarterback Joe Flacco and running back Ray Rice were both on the field. Rice (thigh) did not practice Wednesday, and he was a limited participant yesterday. Flacco, who is dealing with a low-grade sprain in his left knee, has been limited the past two days. Both were listed as questionable on the injury report, though they are expected to play.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco made it through the final full practice of the week without further injuring his sprained left knee. Flacco, who practiced on a limited basis all week while wearing a brace on his left knee, was listed as questionable on the injury report but on Sunday is expected to make his 108th consecutive start. "He looked good," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said. "I don't know if it was a progression. He looked pretty much the same all week and got through all the practices and took his reps and did well.

Strong-side linebacker Elvis Dumervil was the lone Raven not practicing today as the team continued its preparations for Monday night's game against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. Dumervil has not practiced since hurting his left ankle in the Ravens' Thanksgiving night victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, Dumervil said that he is aiming to return to the practice field on Friday. "I'm going to try and go out tomorrow," he said. "I'm going to try and go out with the guys, get some work in. We've got a good team in Detroit so I have to make sure I'm ready.

In what might fully qualify as one of those "only in Baltimore moments," an Elvis tribute artist named Jim Parsley - white jumpsuit and red scarf, fabulously coiffed black hair with 1970s sideburns - performed songs of the King on Saturday night on the big stage in Lithuanian Hall, backed up by a blues band and three belly dancers. Elvis and belly dancers, and the belly dancers trying to keep up with "Suspicious Minds" - a memorable tableau, with a whole lot of shaking going on, and unlikely to be found in any other American city.

Pieces of column too short to use . . .All right, already. I got the message: People hate organ music at ballparks. Some 1,439 readers -- one of the biggest responses ever -- called The Evening Sun's "It's Your Call" line the other night to vote on the question raised in Wednesday's column: Would live organ music at Oriole Park help or hinder your enjoyment of the game? And 848 respondents said it would help them -- NOT!! Five hundred and ninety-three much smarter people agreed with me that organ music suited the new old-fashioned ballpark perfectly.

When the Ravens signed Elvis Dumervil in the offseason, the expectation was that he and fellow outside linebacker Terrell Suggs would team up to become one of the best pass-rushing tandems in the league. Considering that Suggs was coming off an injury-marred 2012 season in which he had just two sacks and also that Dumervil was being dropped into a new defensive system, those immediate expectations may have seemed a little lofty. But after watching them harass quarterbacks throughout training camp and into the preseason, it was clear to most that the Ravens had something special at the outside linebacker position.

After fielding a few questions about whether Terrell Suggs is playing better than he ever has and another about the effect that Elvis Dumervil has had on his pass rush, defensive coordinator Dean Pees wanted to make sure Baltimore media and Ravens fans knew about the dirty work being done by Courtney Upshaw. The second-year strong-side linebacker has made just 10 tackles in five games and recorded his first sack of the season last weekend against the Miami Dolphins. But Pees said Upshaw “does a lot of little things behind the scenes,” like picking offensive linemen to free up his teammates to sack the quarterback.
