Gerry Sandusky has never met Jerry Sandusky. There is no relation. The sports director for WBAL and the radio voice of the Ravens has only been in State College, Pa., once in his life, and that was 24 years ago. But after the sex abuse scandal at Penn State involving former defensive coordinator, Jerry Sandusky, became a major national news story this past weekend, Gerry Sandusky watched fans and colleagues steer clear of him before Sunday night's...

Gerry Sandusky takes you to the third floor of his northern Baltimore County home and points to a book shelf. "There it is," he says. Huh? That's where he keeps his Ravens Super Bowl ring? Where's the glass display case with the spotlight shining on it? And the velvet ropes to keep the riff-raff at arm's length? And maybe a glowering security goon standing by so no one tries any funny business? I have made this trip to see what Sandusky, the long-time WBAL-TV sports director and Ravens broadcaster, plans to do with his Super Bowl ring.

Michael Phelps has held a lot of titles. Olympic swimming champion. Philanthropist. Subway spokesman. Add a new one to the list: social media expert. The swimmer took over the official Ravens twitter account during last week's snowy last-minute victory over the Vikings, a social media stunt that, of course, spawned its own hash tag: #MPTakeover. His excitement was palpable. "THERE IT IS!!!!! Are you serious!?!?! 4TDs in 1:30!! Snowballs at M&T. Best game EVER for those who stayed!

John Sandusky's legacy included five Hall of Fame linemen, the NFL's best pass protection of the 1980s, and, perhaps surprisingly, a resonant singing voice. Don Shula, beneficiary of Sandusky's football contributions in Baltimore and Miami, yesterday remembered the voice as well as the coach. "He was part Irish, part Polish," the former Miami Dolphins and Colts coach said of Sandusky. "But the Irish part, he had that great Irish voice and he sang those great Irish songs like `Danny Boy.' Invariably when we went out together as a staff, John would burst out in song.

WBAL-TV is standing behind its Wednesday-night report by sportscaster Gerry Sandusky linking the suicide of former Baltimore Orioles pitcher and executive Mike Flanagan to him being "despondent" over being perceived as having failed the team and fans during his time in the O's front office. But police investigators Thursday unequivocally attributed Flanagan's action to "financial difficulties. " That attribution, police said, is based on an interview with Flanagan's widow, Alex.

If viewers to WBAL's 6 p.m. news were confused, they had the right to be. Outside of a graphic that appeared onscreen during the sports portion of the news, the only mention of Michael Phelps' failure to win a medal in his first event Saturday came in a graphic shown onscreen during Gerry Sandusky's sports portion of the show. And Sandusky warned viewers to look away before the news of Phelps' fourth-place finish was shown on the screen if they didn't want to know. Sandusky never verbally reported the results, according to WBAL General Manager Dan Joerres.
