John Irving came to M&T Bank Stadium from his home in New Jersey Saturday to see his favorite soccer team, Tottenham Hotspur, play in person for the first time. But Irving, whose allegiance is derived from the fact his father grew up near the team's base in North London, felt as if he could have been in Liverpool. Red replaced purple as the favorite jersey color for the preseason friendly between the two English Premier League teams. Still, Irving and other Tottenham fans who came from all over the United States and Canada didn't seem to mind being in the minority.

Last week's rain seems like it was years ago on this fine Cinco de Mayo morning, but as you arrive at your desk, I'm sure there's not much you'd rather do than not start working just yet. That's why blogger Jon Meoli writes the Coffee Companion, where every morning, Monday through Friday, he recounts the biggest local sports headlines. - The Orioles dropped out of first place this weekend after losing two of three in Minnesota, and Buck Showalter expressed some concern about the bullpen's usage since Thursday's doubleheader .

For decades, Liverpool soccer fans at the team's 120-year-old stadium, Anfield, have been singing their adopted anthem, "You'll Never Walk Alone. " Brendan Rodgers, who was named the team's new manager June 1, is hoping that the partisans of the former English Premier League power stay true to the words that were penned nearly 70 years ago by the legendary songwriter Oscar Hammerstein. Rodgers and "The Reds," as Liverpool is known because of the color of its home jerseys, will start walking together during a summer U.S tour, including a friendly against rival Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur, on July 28 at M&T Bank Stadium.

She wears a split-legged skirt with a leopard-skin pattern and a dirty white coat with a furry hood. When the coat is open at the collar it is easy to see the cigarette burn on her neck.

"It's fair to say that when I played 20 years ago, there was a feeling of, 'What do Americans know about soccer?' " said Eales, who played first at West Virginia and later at Brown before playing professionally. "Now there's a real respect for American players. " Eales, director of football administration for Tottenham Hotspur of the English Premier League, has seen that first-hand.

M&T Bank Stadium has been transformed again this week, to accommodate another kind of football team and fan. While the Ravens are getting ready for their season in relative seclusion in Owings Mills, two English Premier League soccer teams will be taking over their stadium Saturday when Tottenham Hotspur takes on Liverpool in a 1 p.m. preseason match. Tickets are still available, but Ravens officials are pleased with what they expect to be a crowd of more than 40,000. That would make it the second-largest crowd among more than a dozen friendlies so far in the U.S. this summer involving at least one international team.

GETTYSBURG, Pa. -- By the 1850s, Americans were inclined to solve social problems locally rather than at the national level. Across the ocean, Britain's lean toward central government solutions was likewise well pronounced. The event that snaps this into focus is the massive immigration of the Irish to the United States and England in the mid-19th century. That's one conclusion from "Receiving Erin's Children: Philadelphia, Liverpool and the Irish Famine Migration, 1845-1855," by J. Matthew Gallman, professor of history at Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, Pa. The book, to be published in May by the University of North Carolina Press, examines the responses of an American city, Philadelphia, and a British metropolis, Liverpool, to the waves of Irish immigrants caused by the great potato blight.
