John Leopold just won't go away quietly. Over a year after he was convicted of misconduct and resigned in disgrace as Anne Arundel County executive, Leopold is still in court trying to get his conviction overturned in time for February 25th. Why then? Because that's the deadline for candidates to file to run for office in Maryland this year. Leopold's near desperate Hail Mary to get his conviction overturned has more to do with his inability to run for office than it does with his disagreement with the conviction or any public embarrassment that he was outed for his boorish behavior.

IRVINE, Calif. - Though he has swum four meets since his return to competition, Michael Phelps will gain a truer gauge of his form this week at U.S. Nationals. The event, which begins Wednesday and runs through Sunday, will bring together the nation's best swimmers as they vie for spots in the 2015 FINA World Championships in Kazan, Russia. Analysts will have their eyes on Phelps, not only to see how he fares against world-class competition but to glean a hint of which events he hopes to swim at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

A century ago in spring training, a rawboned Orioles rookie stepped to the plate, swung from the heels and hit a fastball deep to right field. The ball landed in a rut in a cornfield, more than 400 feet from home plate. In Fayetteville, N.C., a historic marker notes the spot where George Herman Ruth, 19, hit his first professional home run in his first outing as an Oriole in 1914. He wasn't yet The Babe - teammates would pin that nickname on him within the month - but he surely was Baltimore's own. That Ruth began his career with his hometown team surprises many, sports historian Mark Millikin said.

2012 Leth Gruner Veltliner From: Wagram, Austria Price: $19 Serve with: Roasted poultry, salmon with cream sauce This is an especially rich, creamy version of this classic Austrian white wine variety. It's basically dry but with a hint of sweetness. Its lush texture is reminiscent of a top-flight Alsace pinot gris, but at a more affordable price. This wine is bursting with flavors of honey, peach, pears, orange, lime and mulling spices. It's a very impressive wine from a producer I haven't seen before.

IN AN ERA of rising ticket prices, player salaries streaking past Hale-Bopp and revolving-door rosters, it's easy for fans to feel that they're not valued customers of professional sport, just replaceable props in the stands. But Tuesday's decision by the Baltimore Orioles to postpone the 1997 opener until today due to frigid, gusting winds was a gesture in a brighter vein. No doubt the 24-hour postponement inconvenienced some and disappointed others who planned to attend, but now can't make it to the ballpark.

When Terrell Suggs spoke at last year's mandatory minicamp, his voice barely rose above a whisper. His first in-depth interview since the Super Bowl season was absent of colorful sound bites and shtick, a major departure from Suggs' normal fun-loving and quick-quipping persona. Whether it was intentional or not, the message was sent and it would be reinforced throughout the 2014 season. Suggs, who had become the undisputed defensive leader with Ray Lewis retired and Ed Reed playing elsewhere, was taking his new responsibilities seriously.

I can't imagine that Ravens officials were too thrilled when they learned Thursday morning that inside linebacker D'Qwell Jackson , who was cut last week by the Cleveland Browns, was given a four-year, $22 million deal by the Indianapolis Colts that included $11 million in guaranteed money.  As I wrote earlier in the week, Jackson (Maryland) was going to be an interesting gauge for the market for Ravens middle linebacker Daryl Smith . It's not an exact comparison, because Jackson is about a year younger and a different player in a lot of ways.

COLLEGE PARK -   There's an innocence about Maryland freshman basketball player Damonte Dodd. Everything seems new and promising to the 6-foot-10, 250-pound center, without boundaries or baggage or bravado. Put Dodd into the cauldron of blue-faced students and blue-chip talent that is Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium, and he reacts as if he's back on the Eastern Shore, just playing ball. “He acted like he was at the park, not playing on national TV against Duke,” Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said a couple of days after Dodd helped the Terps nearly beat the then-No.

Netflix picked up the promotional tempo for the Feb. 14 debut of Season 2 of "House of Cards" with the release of another trailer last week. This one is worth it for Francis Underwood's assessment of what appears to be his swearing-in as vice president of the United States. "Democracy is so overrated," he says, noting that not a single vote was cast in his favor. If Underwood does officially assume the vice presidency in Season 2, we'll have two American vice presidents created on the soundstages of Baltimore: Underwood and Selina Meyer (HBO's "Veep")

PEOPLE OFTEN ASK me: When are you going to write an opera about Parris Glendening? To which I respond: Like, never. Let's face it, he's not exactly Scarpia. There's an element of Don Giovanni there but an equal amount of Don Knotts. The governor of Maryland just doesn't give much in the way of operatic inspiration: He split up with his wife. He reportedly hooked up with a younger woman on his staff. But ol' Parris couldn't even do that with drama; a potential five-course feast of scandal never got beyond a dull, little dinner for two at Cracker Barrel.

Just as its offer to buy its rival was rejected, Jos A. Bank Clothiers Inc. spurned a $1.2 billion turn-table acquisition bid by Men's Wearhouse Inc. on Monday, but most observers still believe a merger is inevitable. Responding to Men's Wearhouse's Nov. 26 bid, Bank, which is headquartered in Hampstead, announced that its board determined the proposed $55 per share price "significantly" undervalued the chain and was not in the best interest of shareholders. The retailer, which runs 629 stores in 44 states, also repeated earlier statements that it continues to eye potential acquisitions of its own. "Our board undertook a thorough review and determined that the per share consideration in the proposal made to us by Men's Wearhouse was simply not in the best interest of our shareholders," Robert N. Wildrick, Bank's chairman, said in a statement.

Thank you for publishing the article in the June 6 Columbia Flier telling of 11 young Maryland spellers, one of whom is from Columbia, who made it to the national level of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Mitsuki Ota is a seventh-grade student and your headline and article should have congratulated him on his remarkable achievement. You instead published material that focused on his "defeat. " The bold headline above the young boy's photo screams, "Local speller falls short. " Reaching the national level of this competition is an accomplishment.
