Scouts from the Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles who attended Towson's Colonial Athletic Association opener with Maine Saturday night to gauge Ryan Delaire's talent were treated to a tantalizing display. The senior defensive end matched his season total of three sacks in the Tigers' 27-24 loss. He had sacks on back-to-back plays in the third quarter and lodged his final takedown later in the same period. After getting credited with 3½ tackles in the first half, Delaire posted his three sacks and another half tackle in the second half, which occurred after a halftime discussion with coach Rob Ambrose.

In NFL locker rooms, respect isn't earned only on the field. The almighty dollar also helps. When the Cleveland Browns signed Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden to a five-year, $68 million contract in May that included $45 million guaranteed, it affirmed his reputation as one of the top cornerbacks in the game - and his value to the AFC North franchise. "What sets Joe Haden apart? He's not an average corner," Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith said. "His contract, that shows you he's not average.

LIKE it or not, professional wrestling, or what passes for it, is popular again. The "sport" is a key attraction worldwide on cable television, drawing an estimated 35 million viewers.What viewers see is wrestling-as-show-business, a sort of burlesque. These so-called wrestlers fake everything about the competition -- the holds, the pain, the wins, the losses.But we shouldn't be too quick to deride them or their game. Baltimore has a history of staging versions of this kitsch to packed houses.

For all the revolutionary technological change rocking media these days, the TMZ video of Ray Rice punching Janay Palmer in a casino elevator is a stark reminder of the enduring and awesome power of the image. The two punches Rice delivers to his then fiancee take up only about four seconds of actual video time, yet they instantly blew away more than seven months of speculation, spin, damage control and image building from high-priced attorneys, fellow players, sports-media sympathizers, the Ravens organization and the National Football League.

CHICAGO - The first half of the Orioles' six-game, weeklong trip to Chicago was a success in more ways than one. They beat up on the floundering Chicago White Sox, sweeping the three-game series at U.S. Cellular Field. Fate shined down on the Orioles, but that seems to happen when you're playing as well as this team's playing. On Tuesday, while the Chicago Cubs waited through a four-hour rain delay at Wrigley Field, not a drop fell on the city's South Side, even though the ballparks are less than 10 miles apart.

In 2013, Summerslam might have been the best pay per view of the year, with two Match of the Year candidates. While it might not reach that level, the card this year certainly has the potential to be memorable. Last year, both the Brock Lesnar/CM Punk match (which was my pick for match of the year) and the John Cena/Daniel Bryan match were showered with praise both from fans and critics. They were the top of a great pay-per-view, which also included an overlooked match featuring Alberto Del Rio and Christian.

Yesterday in one sentence: The nation of Brazil let out the world's largest sigh of relief after a win in penalties against Chile, and Uruguay proved (wait for it) toothless in attack when held up against Colombia and its star forward James Rodriguez. What's on tap: Netherlands vs. Mexico, 12 p.m., ABC; Costa Rica vs. Greece, 4 p.m., ABC. What you'll see: If Saturday was decidedly South American, here's to a Sunday that is decidedly CONCACAF-y. Along with the United States, a record three teams from the North and Central American federation advanced to the knockout rounds, with Mexico and Costa Rica fighting to move on today.
