WASHINGTON - When the Virginia Tech game had been won, Maryland football coach Randy Edsall bolted from the sideline and bounded across the field, his arms upraised, his fists pumping, an ear-to-ear grin on his face. As the Terps prepared for Friday's Military Bowl game against Marshall in Annapolis, Edsall said he regards the 27-24, overtime win over the Hokies on Nov. 16 as a watershed moment not only of the season, but perhaps for his program. If not for that victory, the Terps (7-5)

Memo to elementary school teachers and to anyone else who may be planning a Thanksgiving play or Pilgrim-themed lunch this week: Do not dress the little boys in boxy black coats with large, flappy white collars, square-buckled belts and black hats, nor the girls in black dresses with prim white aprons and caps. No self-respecting, fashion-conscious Pilgrim would have been caught dead in such a drab getup. The Mayflower folks dressed like the Elizabethan Englanders they were - think Shakespearean actors doing Romeo and Juliet at the Globe - and they weren't shy about accessorizing with red, purple and other bright colors.

For most of the callow Colts, the history of the Colts' move from Baltimore to Indianapolis might as well be as distant and foreign as the publication of the Magna Carta and the War of 1812. “I wasn't even born then," Dwayne Allen said of the 1984 move of the franchise. He's 22 years old. Born in 1990. “I wasn't even a thought. " That's true for most of this team. And the older guys? They were kids when the move happened. They were trying to figure out multiplication tables when those Mayflower trucks left in the dead of night.

Move over, Mayflower. NationsBank may be about to enter the fan zone -- that tricky realm where any corporation that thwarts our football yearnings can end up with a moving-van-sized load of consumer ill will.Charlotte, N.C.-based NationsBank won stockholder approval recently to take over MNC Financial Inc., a move that will make it the biggest bank in Maryland. The state, of course, was once the home of the Baltimore Colts and wants desperately to be home to a new NFL franchise.Charlotte also is vying for an NFL expansion team, and if it gets one, it could come at Baltimore's expense.

Baltimore Storage has been a fixture in town for more than a century, sited at Charles and 26th streets since 1923, and in his two dozen years there, President Jay Hott has done just about every kind of job. But the most recognizable moment in the history of the company, which is a local agent for Mayflower Transit Co., and in Hott's career, is best summarized in a message scrawled on the side of a toy truck on display in his office: "We didn't know!"...

So there you are on the television show "Jeopardy."You have a comfortable lead and Alex is reading the Final Jeopardy answer: "The place where the Pilgrims first set foot in America after their long voyage on the Mayflower." What a stroke of luck! This one's a slam dunk. Confidently, you write down your question. "What is Plymouth Rock?"And you watch all your winnings go down the drain. Because your answer is wrong. The actual spot where the Pilgrims first set foot in the New World is Provincetown, Mass.

Supposedly, an estimated 10 percent of Americans can trace their ancestry back to the Mayflower. Not surprisingly, former President George W. Bush - son of a president, grandson of a U.S. senator, first offspring produced by the marriage of the blueblooded Bush and Walker families - is a Mayflower descendant. President Barack Obama's roots go almost that deep: He is a descendant of Thomas Blossom, who arrived in Plymouth Colony less than a decade after the Mayflower landed. America's two most recent presidents are distant cousins.

Lloyd Pearson, a veteran Baltimore Sun photographer whose iconic image of yellow and green Mayflower moving vans rolling the Baltimore Colts out of town during a midnight snowstorm earned him lasting fame, died New Year's Day from complications of cancer at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson. The longtime Overlea resident was 90. Garn Lloyd Pearson — he never used his first name — was born the son of a cowboy/house painter and a homemaker in Monroe, Utah. His family moved around rural Utah before settling during the Great Depression in Salt Lake City, where he graduated in 1939 from Western High School with honors in art and drama.

Today is The Baltimore Sun 's 174th birthday. I'm pretty sure that when the newspaper was created, the only sports that existed were horse racing, wrestling and outrunning packs of wild dogs. Flash forward to 2011 and we now have the Ravens, the Orioles and the Terps around to fill our sports section, and we're thankful for that. So instead of looking back on the past 174 years -- we already did that here -- let's look ahead to 174 years from now and try to think of sports stories The Sun will be covering from now until 2185.

Indianapolis -- It was like a military operation, a bloodless assault on an enemy stronghold. The marching orders, cryptic and limited to a rare few in the know, were coming through in the spring of 1984. To an Indianapolis-based college student named David Pidgeon, whose father, Dick, was general manager of Hogan Transfer & Storage/Mayflower and wanted his son to help with a job the next afternoon. To Haydon Hapak, an Indianapolis-born Mayflower employee working in Chicago at the time, who had been told by higher-ups to find trucks along the Eastern seaboard that could rendezvous in Alexandria, Va., for a secret mission outside of Baltimore.

Now that Baltimore's Grudge Match of the Millennium is set, here are a few recollections of life without the Colts and with the Ravens, from an outsider (which I am, by definition, being a D.C. native). The morals of these stories, as with pretty much every story you'll hear this week: Old loyalties die hard, and time marches on, not necessarily in that order. Flash back to January 1988, when the Colts reach the playoffs for the first time since arriving in Indianapolis. I am writing for the St. Petersburg Times, and I convince my editor that a story about Baltimore coming to terms with the Colts' success in their new home would be compelling.
