You spent three hours last Sunday screaming at the TV, watching penalty flags flutter to the turf like dead canaries and cripple the Ravens in that ugly 23-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. And you don't want to go through that again this weekend when they face the Oakland Raiders with a playoff berth on the line, because you'll end up pulling your hair out. Well, guess what? The Ravens don't want to go through it again, either.

Even after their unsightly 27-14 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Monday night, the Ravens still have a shot at the playoffs because they don't face a team with a winning record the rest of the way. The Ravens' biggest opponent over the final four weeks of the regular season might be themselves - or the officials, depending on your perspective. Penalties have dogged the Ravens throughout the season and have cost them a chance to keep pace in the AFC wild-card race. The Ravens' 12 penalties at Lambeau Field were the most in the 31-game John Harbaugh era. Their five pass-interference penalties (four of which were on the defense)

Shame on the Catonsville Times for essentially running a story for the i9 flag football league ("New flag football league puts the fun in fundamentals," Sept. 21). Make no mistake, i9 is a for-profit business. The Times was misguided to devote a full page advertisement to this organization. Catonsville already has dozens of sports programs, offered to the children of the community under the Baltimore County Parks and Recreation umbrella. These are run 100 percent by volunteers, who are completely focused on the children - not turning a profit.

On the surface, Matt Hauser was an Army fan, wearing a black-and-camouflage jersey and rooting for the home team at the annual Army-Navy flag football matchup at Fort Meade. But like many Marylanders, he has deep respect for Navy, too. Lifting his Army jersey, he revealed a blue Navy jersey underneath. Even in flag football, Army-Navy is "a nice rivalry," said Hauser, a Severn insurance agent who helped organize a tailgate party for Thursday's game. But there's more to it, he said.

For years, they've gathered every weekend on a grassy field in Dundalk to play tackle football. A gang of spirited, blue-collar twentysomethings, they shake hands, choose sides and, for three hours, wale the tar out of each other. So, when they heard about the first Baltimore Flag Football Festival on Saturday — an all-day, round-robin tournament at Pimlico Race Course promising $1,200 to the winner — the crew from Dundalk signed on. After all, how hard could the flag game be, once you're used to playing tackle?

At first glance, Orioles reliever Darren O'Day is just another fortunate jock who played top-shelf college baseball, married the beautiful blond, cruised to the majors and is now a millionaire. Yawn. Get to know O'Day, though, and the clichés spin away like the submariner's slider to a befuddled batter. That blessed right arm? He swings it around to the plate at about knee-level, prompting ribbing from teammates that he's a glorified softball pitcher. Throughout his career, his fastball has averaged just 86 mph. That collegiate baseball career?

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - One cell phone call to Brady Anderson is interrupted because he's running with the track athletes at the University of California-Irvine. Another time, he cuts the conversation short to lift weights, promising to reserve a few minutes later in the day. Nighttime hours are spent feeding his 7-month-old daughter, Brianna, and putting her to bed. And the weekends aren't always good because he's competing in a flag football league. Perhaps the Orioles' second-most popular player behind Cal Ripken during his 14 years in Baltimore, Anderson has been retired from baseball since the San Diego Padres released him from their Triple-A affiliate in Portland, Ore., in 2003.
