Today, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) recommended that wrestling be removed from the 2020 Olympic Games . The recommendation was ultimately made by secret ballot of several rounds, and wrestling was voted out from a final group that included modern pentathlon, taekwondo and field hockey. This is an unsettling decision for many in the pro wrestling community, a landscape that is full of successful amateur wrestlers at all levels, including former Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle, a TNA wrestler.

TNA Wrestling celebrates its 10th anniversary this weekend with the Slammiversary pay-per-view. Through the years, many stars have come and gone through the TNA system, but there have been a core group of TNA "originals" who have remained loyal to the product through the good times and the bad. One of them, a "founding father" of the company, was "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels. Today, Daniels is one-half of the TNA World Tag Team Champions with Frankie Kazarian and the self-proclaimed "new face of Impact Wrestling.

1 Baltimore chop: There are likely to be a lot of Florida State fans in Maryland - at least for one day - watching the ACC men's final, as the Seminoles play Duke (1 p.m., chs. 54, 5). 2 Terps win: Maryland didn't beat Duke yesterday, but the Terps did top the Blue Devils last week. Comcast SportsNet will show a replay of the ACC women's final at 12:30 p.m. 3 Shall we dance?: See whether the Maryland men receive an at-large bid when the NCAA tournament selections are announced (6 p.m., chs. 13, 9)

Ostrich meat for good sportsHere's a first: a sports- nutrition food made of ostrich. Ostrim meat stick is a high-protein, low-fat, low-sugar snack that looks something like beef jerky. The taste isn't bad, either. Ostrim even has an Olympic gold medalist for a spokesman, wrestler Kurt Angle (above).There's only one catch. If your kids are like my kid, after they find out what's in it, they'll never touch it.Ostrim is available locally at GNC stores.The Fine Grind, a gourmet coffee and tea shop, has just opened at 101 S. Main St. in Bel Air. You can get 30 or so coffees by the pound, plus teas, imported candies and pastries.

What were your expectations when the Ravens signed you as a free agent Aug. 12? My expectations were to be the best that I could be and play well and do for this team whatever it needs me to do to win. Those expectations haven't changed. I just want us to win ... our conference. Every goal that we set, we still have a chance at them. Did you have any benchmarks in terms of playing time? I knew I'd play. I just didn't know how much. I think early in the season, I was playing a lot, but lately, haven't been in as much as you'd want to be. But it's bigger than you. It's about the game, it's about us winning.

I didn't keep count, but it seemed to me that Vince McMahon's name was mentioned more times on TNA Impact on Thursday night than Samoa Joe's, Sting's and Kurt Angle's - combined. Angle and Jeff Jarrett made the WWE chairman the focus of their angle, and even Mick Foley took a shot at his former boss in his much-anticipated debut promo.

On Impact on Thursday, Kurt Angle cut a promo in which he again brought up Jeff Jarrett's three young daughters. He said that after he gets through with Jarrett, the girls will be orphans. Jarrett's wife, Jill, succumbed to breast cancer last year. By my count, this is the third instance in which Jill Jarrett's death has been used for story-line fodder. I just don't see the entertainment value in any of this. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/ringposts)

TNA crosses the line I usually enjoy watching Kurt Angle and Jeff Jarrett, and I have a lot of respect for everything they have accomplished in the wrestling business. But I'm pretty disgusted with what I saw from them Thursday night on Impact. Angle was cutting one of his best and most intense promos ever - and then he took it one step too far. For the second time since his angle began with Jarrett, Angle taunted Jarrett by bringing up his deceased wife, Jill, who lost her battle with breast cancer last year.
