It's London week in the NFL. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who played American football across the pond two seasons ago, return to Wembley to "host" the Chicago Bears. The London experiment is now in its fifth year. The game hasn't sold out -- the NFL can blame the lockout for that -- but it has been well-attended in the past. But can interest be sustained if the NFL placed a team in London, or would it be a novelty act that faded away? John York, co-owner of the San Francisco 49ers and the head of the NFL owners' international committee, told BBC that having a franchise in London “is a long-range plan.” For now, they are trying to market the sport.

I was already a huge Beatles fan when the group performed at the Baltimore Civic Center on Sept. 13, 1964. So that's why my Catonsville friends were surprised to learn where I spent that evening: at home. Those same friends were again surprised about 10 years later when I told them how I had met Paul McCartney by accident (well, sort of). Let me connect the dots between those two stories. I became an instant fan of The Beatles after hearing their music on Baltimore WCAO-AM radio in late 1963.

Rod Cofield has the building. Now he needs the tools. Cofield's team at Historic London Town and Gardens has built a reproduction of a carpentry shop at the Colonial site in Edgewater. Now, to show how carpenters worked at the site in the 1700s, he has to find tools from that era. "We have a few tools. … It's not as if we can go to Lowe's or Home Depot to find what we need," Cofield said. Such are the challenges of running a historic site that's part museum, part gardens, part archaeological site and part wedding venue.

The day began as so many have for Michael Phelps : at Meadowbrook pool in Mount Washington, where the mileage he has swum over the years would have gotten him to London a long time ago. But on this Saturday, the Baltimore swimmer's work would continue out of the water as well. On deck was Ryan Seacrest, recently named a prime-time host of NBC's coverage of the Summer Olympics in London, in town to interview him. And later that night, Phelps would headline a fundraising gala for Meadowbrook's North Baltimore Aquatic Club, mingling with the Maryland governor and first lady and donors who in some cases paid in the five figures to meet him. A hundred days from Wednesday, the Summer Games will open, but the event is also the beginning of the end of one of the greatest Olympic careers ever.

And according to a Marist College poll released Monday, Michael Phelps is the Games' runaway sensation. Fifty percent of Americans planning to watch the Olympics expect Phelps to be the biggest male star in London. That significantly trumps LeBron James, who finished second (17 percent), and Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, who came in third (8 percent).

The celebration of America's birthday rarely includes references to Thomas Paine, the author of the pre-Revolutionary War pamphlet "Common Sense. " But Paine's role in the break with Great Britain was important, and his life has a way of reminding us that our nation has had enormous tolerance for wayward individuals - a sobering contrast to the consistent propriety exemplified by history-makers such as George Washington or John Adams. Paine was born in 1737 in Thetford, a village 70 miles northeast of London, the son of a staymaker or corsetmaker.

Welcome to the Season 4 finale -- downsized in drama and housing. "Downsized" being a relative term. Compared to last year's finale, when Matthew bit the dust, there wasn't a grand dramatic moment this time around. To be fair, this isn't quite a "season finale" in the American TV sense of the word. In Britain, this is the Christmas Special, re-packaged and re-promoted as the "season finale" here. It's a bit of false advertising, but we'll take it.  And the "downsized" housing?

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents on Monday seized almost $33,000 from a man at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport who reported bringing only $9,000 into the country on his flight from London. Customs officers found $14,930 in cash and three endorsed checks totaling $18,059 - a total of $32,989 - in the man's luggage, authorities said. There is no limit to how much money someone can bring into the country, but federal law requires travelers to declare amounts exceeding $10,000 or equivalent in foreign currency.

LONDON -- I OWE a debt of gratitude to George Peabody, the 19th-century Baltimore and London banker-philanthropist. In fact he's the reason I have a roof over my head.My building was erected at the turn of the century after Lord Shaftesbury, one of Britain's leading social reformers, persuaded Peabody that housing for the working class was an excellent use for his philanthropy.Sometimes I don't know whether to bless him or curse him when I'm struggling up five flights of stone steps to my apartment, lugging heavy shopping bags.

Brian Hoyer grew up rooting for the Cleveland Browns as a young boy, wearing a Bernie Kosar jersey while sitting in the upper deck of old Municipal Stadium with his father. Now Hoyer is the Browns' starting quarterback with starter Brandon Weeden ruled out for the second game in a row because of a sprained right thumb suffered during a loss two weeks ago to the Ravens. These are heady times for Hoyer, a Cleveland St. Ignatius graduate preparing for his second NFL start Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.
