Conflict and tension between authority figures and superstars are by no means new concepts in the world of professional wrestling. The most obvious example comes in the form of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's crusade against WWE CEO Vince McMahon. That duo battled on the microphone, in the boardroom and in the ring. Many have debated whether the ongoing CM Punk vs. John Laurinaitis issues can reach the fever pitch of McMahon-Austin. But really, these overly analytical fans need to let the past be the past and let this feud blossom into its own. Not helping matters any is the clustered nature of the feud to begin with.

By the time Jen Staab and Sam Hruz played in The Game for the first time, they knew all about the basketball rivalry between the Institute of Notre Dame and Mercy. They grew up hearing about the competition, the tradition and the school spirit surrounding what is as much an event as a basketball game, because their mothers also played in The Game, which will tip off for the 46th time Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Towson Center. "We talk about it all the time," said Hruz, a Mercy junior.

Throughout the season, it seemed as if Terrell Suggs was making a conscious effort to keep Tom Brady's name out of his mouth. While spouting out sound bites on other NFL quarterbacks, such as Ben Roethlisberger and Tim Tebow, on the Ravens' long road to the AFC championship game, the linebacker randomly tossed in vague references to his longtime nemesis from New England. Suggs once mentioned "the pretty boy from up north," and earlier this month, he commented about "the nephew of God," a nod to a recent "Saturday Night Live" skit where Jesus confronts Tebow about having to bail him out in games.

Steven "J.R. " Blackwell, the leader of an East Baltimore drug conspiracy linked to a yearlong street warwith rivals, was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison Friday as part of a guilty plea he struck with prosecutors last fall. Though he was not charged with any acts of violence, authorities believe Blackwell's organization is tied to a wave of shootings touched off by the abduction in April 2008 of his then-teenage brothers. But Blackwell, 27, still faced up to life in prison after being charged with overseeing a multimillion-dollar heroin conspiracy and laundering the proceeds through gambling winnings in Las Vegas and state lottery tickets.

Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs has taken several subtle digs at New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady throughout the season, but he has been on his best behavior this week. In a news conference with the media in Owings Mills today, Suggs said that he has moved on from any perceived fued with Brady. "I guess the genesis of that was the incident in '09, when I almost hit him below the waist," Suggs said. "That's when it all started, but you grow and mature. As you all can clearly see, I'm not the same guy that I was in '09. I'm definitely 20 pounds lighter.

Now that Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch are out of probationary prison, it's Game On again. Although Busch wants to move forward and symbolically sign some kind of truce and drive nice, Harvick is ready to rumble again. "He knows he has one coming," Harvick said after finishing fifth at Pocono on Sunday, only two spots behind Busch. The two got tangled up briefly when Harvick forced Busch down the track early in the race. "I just wanted him to think about it," Harvick said.

I apologize for not blogging about Orioles prospect Dylan Bundy yet today, but I was out at a local MMA gym shooting this week’s Right Back @ You segment, which should be up on the blog sometime tonight. But I’m back, and ready to pass along a few new nuggets on the Orioles’ first-round pick in the 2011 draft. First things first, Bundy’s comment about how he would handle Bryce Harper -- which became national news after I blogged yesterday about his interview on 105.7 The Fan -- got around to the Harper clan, and we now have a full-fledged Bundy-Harper rivalry in the Beltway region.

Debbie Yow and Gary Williams are like that couple that called it quits years ago, but whenever you run into them, you still get the sense they'd like to stab each other in the eyeballs. Wow, is this a feud for the ages or what? Yow, of course, is the former Maryland athletic director who used to get along with Williams, the current Terps basketball coach, the way the Bloods get along with the Crips. But when Yow took over as the AD at North Carolina State last year, you thought maybe that was the end of the sniping between the two. Of course, by now we know it wasn't.

Minnesota anesthesiologist Mark A. Warner freely admits he doesn't know who represents Eastern Maryland in Congress. But he knows who he wants for the job: Andy Harris, the Republican challenger to Frank Kratovil, the district's Democratic incumbent. In his second run at the seat he missed narrowly two years ago, Harris has worked hard to raise money from fellow doctors around the country. Anesthesiologists from at least 39 states and the District of Columbia have responded by pumping more than $250,000 into his campaign, according to Federal Election Commission records, making them far and away the largest single interest fueling Maryland's most competitive House race.
