Let's begin with this truth: few events in recent Baltimore sports history packed the emotional wallop of Ray Lewis' farewell game at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday. From the moment No. 52 emerged from the tunnel during pre-game instructions and danced his crazy dance for the last time, to the end of his exhilarating victory lap around the field, the charged atmosphere was unlike any other game the Ravens have ever played. And in their 24-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts, the Ravens fed off that energy in various ways.

Frank Fried was born a few months before the Orioles won their last World Series, so the 31-year-old mechanical engineer's memories of his favorite baseball team are mostly painful. Like many fans, Fried believes that the drought will end this month, a result that would not only thrill the city but also boost the local economy. A partial season-ticket holder, Fried will be at Camden Yards for Thursday's Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Detroit Tigers, as he was nearly three dozen times during a regular season when the Orioles were one of the best teams in baseball.

CHICAGO -- As the Orioles' second baseman from 1966 to 1972, Davey Johnson took it upon himself to enliven the infield. Now, more than two decades later, he feels compelled to push the same emotional buttons as the Orioles' manager.Johnson last night raised concerns voiced by his predecessors, Phil Regan and Johnny Oates. He described the Orioles as "more veteran, less emotional," but quickly added that it's difficult to act excited when you're getting trounced."I'm not saying you've got to have that [emotion]

Now Andrew Stephenson can go to the Ravens game Thursday night. So there's that. But after video surfaced this week of running back Ray Rice punching his fiancee unconscious, the Baltimore lawyer says, cheering the home team at M&T Bank Stadium isn't going to be the same - and probably won't be for a while. "We'll all be there, feeling a bit ashamed," said Stephenson, 39, who earlier this week appeared to be willing to forgo his share of season tickets, which his firm has held since 1996.

There was, it turned out, no way to prepare for the night when the deal came down.Is that incredible? We had 14 years to prepare for the moment when Cal Ripken finally caught Lou Gehrig -- 14 years to wonder what it would look like, what it would feel like, how it would resonate in our hearts -- and still there was no way to prepare for what happened last night at Camden Yards.No way to prepare for the sight of that number hanging there on the warehouse wall.No way to prepare for the Orioles, as if on cue from the beaming baseball gods, hitting as many home runs as they have ever hit in a game in Baltimore, marking the night in truly celestial fashion.

In an emotional response to the Los Angeles riots, Californians are rushing to gun stores. State law makes them wait 15 days before completing weapons purchases, so buyers have even made a run on World War II rifles, for which there is no waiting period. L.A. gun shops have reported 50-percent, even 100-percent sales increases. People in other states are also rushing to buy guns. (There's no telling how bad it is here. Maryland State Police figures for April and May gun-permit applications won't be available before June.

What Bill Gildea does in his new book is turn his heart inside out. It's right there, 311 pages worth, an elegantly written text with touching sensitivity and profound emotion -- as much a story of family as one about football, the city of Baltimore and a team that was presumed, erroneously as it turned out, to be a public trust.It's a keen writing effort that does far more than document the records and achievements of a litany of past heroes, men with names such as Unitas, Donovan, Mutscheller, Lipscomb, Moore, Berry, Parker and Marchetti.

It was in December, when Coppin State got off to a 1-4 start, that coach Fang Mitchell began to question the makeup of his team."What we lack now is a vocal leader, and we'll need somebody to do that before the year is out," Mitchell said then. "Somebody will come along."Mitchell's hope was wishful thinking after the Eagles, who won the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference regular-season title for the second season in a row, were bounced in the semifinals of the conference tournament and in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament.

The triumph of Dan Jansen is one of the most emotional Olympic stories in recent memory. This was practically a goof-proof story for CBS.Not that the network didn't try.OK, I can accept the waiting until after 10 p.m. to start. And Charles Kuralt's short piece was a nice setup.Then came the competition, and in relatively short order came Jansen. He set a world record in the 1,000-meter speed skating. At that moment, he wasn't assured of a medal, but it was an emotional moment for him and his family entourage, especially his wife.

Few players can torment a fan base like quarterback Joe Flacco. Sunday afternoons in Baltimore during the NFL season have become an elevator ride of emotions with No. 5. We cheer him. We boo him. We love him. We hate him. Sometimes he has the arm strength of Vinny Testaverde and other times he has the brain of Kyle Boller. The suggestion here is for Ravens fans to sit back, fasten their seat belts and get the cat out of the room so you don't kick it. And, just enjoy the ride because no one knows where it's going to end. Despite playing a poor first half Sunday in the season opening loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, Flacco almost rallied the Ravens from a 15-point first half deficit by throwing for 271 yards in the second half including an 80-yard touchdown pass to receiver Steve Smith with 5 minutes and 46 seconds left in the game.

A few months after Maryland men's basketball star Len Bias died from a cocaine overdose in June 1986, and a few days after Dunbar High coach Bob Wade was named to replace Lefty Driesell as coach, a reporter called Gary Williams to ask whether he would have considered taking the job. "It would have been hard, but I would have had to do it - Maryland's my school," said Williams, who was entering his ninth year as a Division I head coach and had...

Nutritionists from the University of Maryland Medical System regularly contribute a guest post to the Sun's Picture of Health blog (baltimoresun.com/pictureofhealth). The latest post is from dietetic intern Janelle Schleicher. Emotional eating is when we use food as a way to cope with our feelings or if we eat in response to a feeling that we have, as opposed to in response to hunger. But not all emotional eating is created equal. It is something that each person encounters on a daily basis, and it is not always a negative thing.

The 30-year-old native Baltimorean has two bachelor's degrees - in French and psychology - and an M.A. and Ph.D. in cognitive science, all from the Johns Hopkins University, where she recently did a stint as a postdoctoral fellow researching "the cognitive neuroscience of artistic creativity. " "The joke among my friends is that I'm such a nerd that I will get another Ph.D. so I can put 'Ph.D.²' after my name," said Lopez-Gonzalez, who currently does consulting work in the field of data visualization.

Derek Woodward can remember how local sports fans reacted to the 1994 World Cup, the first and only time the quadrennial soccer event was held in the United States. Despite games being played as nearby as Washington's RFK Stadium, few casual fans knew what was going on. But Woodward, a teacher and girls soccer coach at Kenwood High in Baltimore County, has seen local interest in the World Cup grow dramatically over the past 20 years. When Woodward organized a watch party at the Gunpowder Lodge in Perry Hall for the U.S. team's tournament opener in 2010, nearly 500 people showed up.

In ill health during the last years of his life, author William Manchester lamented his lost capacity to do what had once struck him as effort-less. Manchester, who died yesterday at 82, once said writing used to be as easy as breathing for him. Maybe he breathed better than most human beings, too. His writing wits muscular and lyrical, vMd in its imagery and often wrenching in its emotional import. From 1947 to 1954, he was a staff writer at The Evening Sun and The Sun. He left newspapering behind - eventually he would gain renown for his books, including classic biographies of Winston Churchill and Douglas MacArthur - but Man-chester remained a prodigious reporter, indefatigable researcher and penetrating observer.

In the eighth inning, Detroit Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler hit a two-run homer off Orioles right-hander Bud Norris. Kinsler admired his shot for a moment - it got out in a hurry - and ran around the bases. It wasn't the fastest run, but it certainly wasn't the slowest. One web site had it clocked at 24 seconds. Two pitches later, 38-year-old outfielder Torii Hunter took a 94-mph fastball in the ribs from Norris. Hunter and Norris yelled at each other, benches and bullpens cleared and home plate umpire James Hoye ejected Norris.

When Rosie Napravnik ventures to Pimlico Race Course to ride Bayern in Saturday's 139th running of the Preakness, the 26-year-old riding star can expect an emotional homecoming. A familiar face will not be there to greet her. Trainer Dickie Small, who gave her a leg up on her very first winner, died April 4. "There'll be a void at Pimlico," said Napravnik, who guided the Small-trained Ringofdiamonds to victory at Pimlico in her first career ride on June 9, 2005. "When I ride in big races and do well, he's one of the first people I think of. I know how proud of me he would be. " Small's presence will be missed next weekend, but Napravnik can expect a lot of support from family and friends at Pimlico as she attempts to realize a schoolgirl's dream of someday winning the Preakness, as well as the Kentucky Derby.
