At Glory Days Grille in Pasadena, the crowd erupted in cheers and chants as the Ravens kicked off with four seconds remaining in Super Bowl XLVII and the clock wound down to give Baltimore its second NFL championship. "I told him, I was worried when it was 28-13," said Ginger Szydlowski, motioning to her partner at the bar. Al Szydlowski laughed. "I was never worried," he said. That may have been a slight exaggeration. Throughout the evening, the bar and restaurant went from jubilant to solemn, to people on the edge of their seats to leaping out of their chairs.

With 23 Orioles greats gathered Friday at Camden Yards for the franchise's 60th-anniversary celebration, there were plenty of stories told about the glory days. But there was also a sense that maybe, finally, more magical Orioles moments are coming. "I've seen the caliber of players on all the other teams. No reason we can't win this division," Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson said of the 2014 Orioles. "After that, it's a little pot luck. That's all. You got to play well. You are going to face better pitching.

Most centennial celebrations take place without the honoree. But Italian-born soprano Licia Albanese is still with us, so it's even sweeter to take note of her birthday as she reaches the age of 100 today, July 22. She enjoyed a great opera career, loved for the sweetness of her tone and her intense commitment to a role. Licia Albanese is one of those distinctive singers who could justifiably sum up her glory days by paraphrasing Norma Desmond: "We had voices!" Note: This clip from a live recording of "Tosca" gets weird at the end. Not sure if the soprano wanted to rush the climactic phrase of "Vissi d'arte" or if the recording just has a nasty edit, but no matter.

Former New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani now leads Arizona Sen. John McCain in the race for the Republican nomination. Given conservatives' wariness toward Mr. Giuliani - who is twice divorced and supports both reproductive and gay rights - it's surprising to find "America's mayor" as the GOP front-runner. Here's my theory for why Mr. Giuliani is ascendant: It's not so much because he triggers memories of the horrific day in the fall of 2001 when the terrorists attacked, but that he reminds Republicans of the fall of 2002.

John Mackey will span two eras of Baltimore football this month.In Canton, Ohio, today, he will likely become the last player from the Baltimore Colts' glory days to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.The prototype of the modern tight end, Mackey played with the Colts from 1963-71, capping the storied 1958-71 era in which the Colts won three championships and fueled the modern pro football boom. The era ended after Bob Irsay bought the team in 1972.Mackey will take his place with Colt Hall of Famers from that era such as Raymond Berry, Art Donovan, Gino Marchetti, Lenny Moore, Jim Parker, Johnny Unitas and coach Weeb Ewbank.

The season is upon us when the question, "Hot enough for ya?" becomes a conversation starter. Usually around Fathers Day, though sometimes earlier and, more rarely, a little later, the sun interacts with the shallow water of the upper Chesapeake Bay in such a way that the second part of the conversation can easily be, "It's not the heat. It's the humidity. " It is fair to say Harford County had plenty of both last week, and this week promises more of the same. Unofficial time and temperature signs were flashing heat levels in excess of 100 degrees, and it wasn't the kind of dry 100 degrees people talk about after they've traveled to Las Vegas or the Grand Canyon.

There's more to sport than winning. There are life lessons. There's the camaraderie. There's the fun of it all. But there's also the thrill of victory, and it's a thrill known many times this season by the girls on the Aberdeen High School basketball team, most recently over the weekend when they won the Maryland Class 3A state high school championship game. The Eagles had a spectacular season, defeating just about every opponent they faced. Their only defeat came at the hands of Riverdale Baptist, a team ranked sixth in the nation by USA Today . Even in the team's one loss there was consolation to be found as forward TK Fowlkes told the Baltimore Sun : "It's a great learning experience.

As an individual who has seen Penn State football coaches come and go, I can say Joe Paterno was an anomaly, failing to retire after his 70th birthday in contrast to both Bob Higgins and Rip Engle, incidentally Mr. Paterno's coach and mentor. At his age, when the problem occurred, namely 75, the job of coaching a now perennial contender was overwhelming, and each year he worried that even as a legend at Penn State, his team would not live up to the expectations of both the student body and alumni.

Columnist Ron Smith states that our economic collapse is inevitable ("When will collapse come?" Sept. 16). As a tea party guy, I hold out hope that there will come a day when voters put enough pressure on our politicians that they see the light and we start paying down our debt to avoid that collapse. But seeing as how Senate Leader Harry Reid just inserted federal funding to create more bike paths into one of the bills going through Congress, I can see why Mr. Smith would conclude that our politicians don't get the gravity of the situation with regard to the debt.

Anyone who follows the Baltimore Orioles can see they are playing about the way they have for over a decade. They seemingly still can't beat the top-tier teams in their division, their starting pitching has been faltering and so far their bullpen has had some forgettable moments. Same old story, different year. Talented ball players with stellar major-league resumes were purchased in the off-season to turn the team's fortunes around, but unfortunately those players have not been performing up to expectations.

BOSTON -- On a bright Friday morning, Ray Flynn shows up at the hiring hall of the International Longshoremen's Association to pick up the union's endorsement.It was voted a couple of weeks ago, but it is necessary to have a press conference to announce it. As it happens, the only press on hand is one out-of-town reporter but, what the hell, in politics you go through the drill. So William McNamara, vice president of the ILA, says the union "will never forget what he did as mayor of Boston for the working people of the city of Boston."

MINNEAPOLIS -- Future Hall of Famer Cal Ripken couldn't hold off until he got home. He collected three singles last night at the Metrodome to become the 23rd player in baseball history to amass 3,000 hits, reaching what figures to be the last major milestone of his amazing career. Ripken lined a base hit to center field off Minnesota Twins reliever Hector Carrasco in the seventh inning to cap his first multi-hit game of the season and add another page to the fairy-tale life of Baltimore's home-grown baseball hero.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III went too far when he fired Officer Salvatore Rivieri ( "Judge upholds firing of officer in harbor skateboard incident," March 1). I was a business owner in South Baltimore and got to know Officer Rivieri personally. He treated his badge with respect and dignity, and only wanted the public to do the same. The young man in the video and his parents should be proud that the city had someone on the force who cared about the wellbeing of the youths.

Christopher and Jonathan Cook are too young to remember the glory days of local liquor, when the unmistakable perfume of Maryland rye wafted over parts of Baltimore, when the sturdy spirit enjoyed status as the real man's drink of the Chesapeake. Even so, the brothers, who grew up on the Eastern Shore, are the best hope of reviving Maryland's lost tradition. The Cooks are poised to become the state's first distillers in nearly 40 years, as they blend and bottle a recipe for a premium wheat vodka they're calling Sloop Betty.
