Locker Room

Boys basketball practice at Archbishop Spalding on Saturday was more than just running drills, practicing jumpers and preparing for Sunday afternoon's game at St. Maria Goretti, a 58-56 loss for the Cavaliers. For fifth-year coach Derrick Lewis and the Cavaliers, it was a chance to learn about life and deal with the trying circumstances that came from an incident during Friday night's game at St. Frances. When the Cavaliers returned to their locker room at halftime, they found their belongings had been sorted through and some items were missing.

An incident at St. Frances during Friday night's boys basketball game against Archbishop Spalding resulted in the game being suspended at halftime after the visiting Cavaliers alleged some electronic items were stolen from their locker room. “Two phones were missing and [Spalding coach] Derrick [Lewis] said his kids didn't want to play the second half,” St. Frances coach Nick Myles said on Saturday morning. St. Frances had a 17-15 lead going into halftime when the game was halted.

CBS Super Bowl broadcasters Jim Nantz and Phil Simms say they see a lot more than just Ray Lewis when they look at the Baltimore Ravens. And come Sunday, the conversation they do have about Lewis in the biggest broadcast booth in popular culture is going to be primarily about his play on the field and inspirational power in the locker room - not what happened in Atlanta. "I would just say, Ravens?" Nantz said Tuesday when asked for his sense of the team's image during a teleconference.

Maybe this is what happens when you've won 16 straight games in your own house and then another  team gums things up by having the nerve to knock you off, as the Pittsburgh Steelers did Sunday with their surprising 23-20 win over the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium. Maybe it throws off your normal routine or disrupts your rhythm or reorders the team karma, a word that probably makes John Harbaugh gag. Whatever the reason, the Ravens post-game locker room had a weird vibe to it last night.

Rookie kicker Justin Tucker's 27-yard field goal as time expired in the Ravens' thrilling 31-30 win against the New England Patriots Sunday night was a distinct contrast from the way the Ravens' season ended against New England in last January's AFC championship game. Tucker's successful kick - as opposed to Billy Cundiff's 32-yard attempt that strayed wide left in the Patriots' 23-20 victory - raised comparisons and prompted some reporters to ask the current Ravens players whether they earned a measure of revenge.

When Ravens safety Bernard Pollard got to the NFL, he noticed the veterans playing a card game in their downtime. And then he saw the sums of money being wagered. "I've seen people dropping $70,000 or $80,000," he said Monday after practice. Pollard hopes Bourre, an app released Friday that he conceived and paid for, will introduce fans to the game without their having to risk any real cash. Available for download on Apple products — iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch — for $1.99, Bourre represents the culmination of a long-ago dream hatched during hours spent playing video games with a teammate in Texas.

As a plodding lap swimmer at Meadowbrook, the Mt. Washington pool where Michael Phelps has trained for almost two decades, I've been watching the phenom swimmer at close range since he was 14 or so. In that time, I've witnessed - along with scores of other equally mesmerized members of the pool - Mr. Phelps' metamorphosis, from gangly and at times ornery adolescent, to incredibly focused young man, to star-studded jocular veteran of the sport, to...

The Ravens' laundry list of free agents is highlighted by running back Ray Rice, left guard Ben Grubbs and linebacker Jarret Johnson, but that trio did not appear Monday when media was allowed in the locker room. However, outside linebacker Terrell Suggs said keeping Rice, a two-time Pro Bowl player, is a “no-brainer.” “We're really good about that, guys who are truly Ravens, keeping them Ravens,” Suggs said. “There's no one better in the game to do it than [Ravens general manager]

A group of reporters was gathered around Ravens center Matt Birk this week, asking difficult questions about the team's pitiful pass protection, when someone across the locker room turned up his stereo as loud as it would go and began to sing. You didn't even need to turn around to identify the troubadour. Anyone who has spent any significant amount of time in the Ravens' locker room over the last five years knew immediately that it was Terrell Suggs. When things get a little too tense during the season, especially after a difficult loss, there are a few things you can always count on at the team's complex in Owings Mills.

Derrek Lee, who had been an Oriole for all of 31/2 months, summoned his struggling teammates together and delivered a message that was a mix of encouragement, insight and advice. With the Orioles in the midst of an eight-game losing streak in mid-April, Lee urged his teammates to relax, acknowledged that he needed to start doing his part and concluded there was too much talent in the home clubhouse for the lineup to be performing as it was. "He thought it was appropriate at the time, and so did everybody else," Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis said.
