As tens of thousands of Baltimore sports fans packed downtown to watch country music star Keith Urban kick off the NFL season and the Orioles' win at home, some of the lingering exasperation that the Ravens were playing out of town faded away. "It was frustrating that the Orioles couldn't move their game," said Kevin Williams, who was celebrating his 53rd birthday at the harbor with friends. "But this is the next best thing. And it's free, you know. " Over at Camden Yards, some Orioles fans were ducking out early to catch the Ravens on TV. But manager Buck Showalter didn't seem to mind.

Let's get the bad news out of the way first: Rich Lafleur, a 20-year-old construction and landscaping worker from Clarksville, choked at the mic in the Hollywood Week episode of American Idol that aired last night.

The scenario was awkward before the first note was played. A long-debated scheduling conflict put the Super Bowl -champion Ravens nearly 1,700 miles away from Baltimore on Thursday night - in Denver - for the team's first game of the regular season. Although the Ravens earned the right to open their season at home, all Baltimore got was a Keith Urban concert. Not that the more than 40,000 in attendance minded. A sea of purple and black flooded the area next to the Maryland Science Center at the Inner Harbor, waiting for the country star and "American Idol" judge to hit the stage floating on the water.

Keith Urban's new album, "Get Closer," had an inauspicious start. The guitars he had long used — some for 20 years — and that he counted as a key component of each recording session, as vital as some of his musicians, were all under water. In May of last year, Nashville was flooded, and Urban's guitars were one of the smaller casualties of the disaster. He thought he wouldn't recover. "It's a strange feeling having these guitars — you feel like the caretaker, and the flood was completely unexpected," he said.

If Baltimore fans find it odd that the NFL has programmed a free concert in Baltimore while the Super Bowl champion Ravens play their season opener halfway across the country, performer Keith Urban finds his circumstances a little unusual, too. “We've never played on a barge before,” the country star said at a news conference Thursday, joking that the band would start doing entire barge tours next. Urban is to play a free concert on a floating stage in the Inner Harbor Thursday to kick off the start of the NFL season.

In Thursday's 3-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox, Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez regained his confidence, lifted his struggling club, picked up his first win since July and sent the club's fans home in time to watch some of the Ravens' opener in Denver. Not bad for a guy who turned in his worst start of the season just a few days ago. “It was fun to be out there and be able to go a little bit deeper than in other games and getting that win. That was important for us,” said Gonzalez (9-7)

It was a fairly intimate crowd that showed up at Camden Yards on Thursday night for the Orioles' series opener against the Chicago White Sox, which should have come as a surprise to no one who has any interest in either of Baltimore's two major professional sports teams. The hardcore Orioles fans showed up to watch a game that could have playoff implications and many others came for the free plaid cap giveaway with the intention of staying until it was time to head home or to a local watering hole to watch the telecast of the Ravens' opener against the Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field.
