He regularly interviews world-famous celebrities and rock stars and banters with a widespread listening audience, but his most popular calling card is being the largely undefeatable star of the show's pop-culture trivia game "Smarter Than Reagan. " While many DJs enjoy the faceless public anonymity of radio, Warfield is known for participating in a number of regional charity events while also finding time to teach at his alma mater, Loyola University Maryland.

Tom Rowe, like many in Baltimore, woke up conflicted on Friday. When he opened his closet but got no answers, he took to Twitter. "Purple or orange?" he typed. "I'm torn. " With the Ravens kicking off their season Monday and the Orioles on a jaw-dropping winning streak that many believe could lead to postseason competition, Baltimore's fans find themselves in the happiest of conundrums, torn between the tradition that is Purple Friday and the sudden chance - pushed this week by the city's mayor - to give Orange Friday a whirl.

Managers at the Pratt Street Alehouse tend to keep their expectations low for Labor Day weekend, typically a sleepy affair in the city. But not this year. Because the pub's outdoor dining patio sits just a few feet from Pratt Street, where open-wheeled racecars will speed past on their way around a 2-mile circuit in the inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix, managers are preparing for a full house — the kind of numbers generated by Opening Day for the Orioles or a Ravens-Steelers football game.
