In some ways, the Browns were asking for this when they went with such a young roster. By this, I mean losing. By this, I mean agitation. By this, I mean asking a beaten-down, impatient fan base to just wait because going young is the best way to build a team. It is the wisest road, assuming the young players have talent. For the full story, go to
There are classical musicians, rock musicians, pop musicians, jazz musicians -- and then there is Elvis Costello, a genre unto himself. For the better part of three decades, the British-born, severely bespectacled Costello has been a remarkable source of interesting, sophisticated, surprising music and music-making, earning a broad fan base with his skills as a singer/songwriter and guitarist. BSO and ELVIS COSTELLO 8 tonight at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Remaining tickets are $34 to $90. Call 410-783-8000 or visit baltimoresymphony.

At a time of amped-up competitions like cage matches and extreme obstacle-course races, there's something downright retro about a good old-fashioned arm-wrestle. A couple of combatants, usually at a bar, usually egged on by onlookers, plant their elbows, grasp hands and try to force each other's arms down. What could be simpler, sweatier and thus more suited to that summer's-end tradition, the Maryland State Fair? "It's mano a mano," said Steve Simons, who for the past five years has hosted an arm-wrestling tournament at the fair, which began Friday.

ESPN personality, Terps athletics supporter and noted fan base evaluator Scott Van Pelt was in College Park on Saturday for Maryland's 27-26 win over Virginia . He was happy with the result, of course. He was not happy with the small swath of students who saw it. Starting at the 35:30 mark of Monday's “SVP and Russillo” broadcast, you can hear his rant on what it means to be a fan, and why Saturday's 41,077 attendance figure was such a disappointment. Or you can read the transcript below: Van Pelt: I'm probably going to get in trouble back in College Park for this one, but some things need to be said.

It might be the most difficult question that an NFL general manager has to answer, and though the day might not be here yet, the day is fast approaching when Ozzie Newsome and the Ravens will have to answer it, consequences be damned. When do decide to draft Ray Lewis' successor? Making the transition away from away from an aging Hall of Famer who has also been the face of your franchise for more than a decade is a prickly endeavor, and history has shown it can divide the fanbase as well as the locker room.

— Until recently, Paul Reed Smith Guitars sold only American-made instruments for more than $2,000 and Korean-made guitars retailing for about $700. To fill the gap — and with something U.S.-made, no less — the Eastern Shore company needed a design that could go from wood to instrument in dramatically less time. Guitars in its core, high-end line take about 20 hours to manufacture. Finding efficiencies is tricky enough when you mass-produce widgets. Imagine the challenge for a company whose niche is high-quality guitars — instruments that have to look and sound good enough to tempt buyers away from the better-known Fender and Gibson brands.
