The Baltimore sports scene is blessed with a bunch of talented bloggers who bring their unique perspective to the conversation. Each week, I hope to chat with one of them in a regular feature called Blogger on Blogger. This week, I exchanged emails with blogger Gordon McGuiness, who writes about the Ravens for Pro Football Focus and also contributes to Russell Street Report and the Purple Reign Show . MV: What are your thoughts on the team's 2013 draft class, specifically Matt Elam and Arthur Brown?

CUSHENDALL, Northern Ireland - For many Protestants, Education Minister Martin McGuinness is the bitter pill they are forced to swallow for the sake of peace. He is a Roman Catholic school dropout and twice-jailed Irish Republican Army commander who sets a rotten example for children. Many of Northern Ireland's Catholics, on the other hand, regard McGuinness as the bellwether of change. He is the street-warrior-turned-politician whose membership in a power-sharing government demonstrates that eight decades of Catholic exclusion in the province are finally coming to an end. McGuinness understands that he is both things in a highly segregated land: persona non grata at most of the 600 overwhelmingly Protestant schools he oversees, but welcomed with open arms by most of the 565 mainly Catholic schools also under his charge, such as Glenann primary in rural County Antrim, where he was the first education minister to set foot in the facility in its 100-year history.

"Why didn't he just pay for his surgery?" That was a prevalent thought as I was watching "The Last of McGuinness," a documentary that chronicles the wrestling retirement tour of a man who chased his dream his entire adult life. Nigel McGuinness wanted to be a professional wrestler, making the most money possible, which meant working for WWE.  He achieved this goal. He had a contract in hand and needed only to pass a physical to be cleared and begin his journey to what he surely felt was stardom and millions of dollars.

LONDON - After 29 years of uncertainty over his role in one of the most searing incidents in the modern history of Northern Ireland, the province's education minister, Martin McGuinness, is poised to disclose publicly that he was the Irish Republican Army's second in command in Londonderry on "Bloody Sunday," according to British and Irish news reports. But he is expected to label as "rubbish and a lie" allegations made by a security services agent that he fired the shot that triggered the mayhem on the streets of Londonderry on Jan. 30, 1972, which came to be known as "Bloody Sunday."

Dorothy McGuinness thought she would spend the rest of her career a county employee, heading a department that helped out-of-work people find jobs.But nine months ago, County Executive Robert R. Neall proposed severing the Office of Manpower and letting it fend for itself as a private nonprofit corporation.Ms. McGuinness said she agreed to let her department be the pilot program for privatization, and in June she embarked on a six-month odyssey to cut the bureaucratic umbilical cord."I had a recurring dream that I was on a train and I came to a juncture that led the train to a different track," said Ms. McGuinness, president of the new company.

YOU'VE SEEN ads advising: "Be your own boss." The idea sounds like a dream and usually is. But Dorothy McGuinness, executive director of Anne Arundel County's Business and Workforce Development Center, is living that dream. Ms. McGuinness reports to the BWDC's board of directors. And she happens to chair that board. Moreover, Ms. McGuinness appoints most board members. Not a bad gig, is it, when you serve at the pleasure of your subordinates? Let me pause here to point out that I'm not claiming that Ms. McGuinness has abused her authority as director and chairwoman of the BWDC.

"There were three bollocks in a cell in Lebanon. An Englishman, an Irishman and an American. Why they were in that cell was anybody's guess." This is the way the Irishman explains the predicament faced by the three characters in Frank McGuinness' Someone Who'll Watch Over Me. As a note in the program for Everyman Theatre's production acknowledges, the set-up sounds like an old joke. But the situation these characters find themselves in is no joke. McGuinness, an Irish playwright, based his script partly on real-life hostages Brian Keenan and John McCarthy.

BELFAST, Northern Ireland -- A militant Free Presbyterian preacher and a former leader of the Irish Republican Army were sworn in as the joint heads of a new government in Northern Ireland yesterday in a move to conclude more than 30 years of conflict between Protestants loyal to Britain and Catholics who fought for a united Ireland. The two still-suspicious new government leaders did not single out each other in the giddy handshakes shared among the new Northern Irish officials. But as the Rev. Ian Paisley of the Democratic Unionist Party and Martin McGuinness of Sinn Fein took their oaths, both sides hailed the day as the final end of the Troubles that took more than 3,500 lives between 1969 and 2001.

Star Jones, co-host of ABC's The View, married banker Al Reynolds in a star-studded Park Avenue bash. Notables ranging from Spike Lee to Sen. Hillary Clinton packed into St. Bartholomew's Church Saturday to watch Jones, 42, who wore a a designer strapless wedding dress with a 27-foot train, exchange vows with Reynolds. "The train was so long it took about seven people to carry it," said friend and guest Valerie Simpson, songwriter and half of the R&B duo Ashford and Simpson. With songstress Patti LaBelle performing, and a bridal party including Natalie Cole, Vivica A. Fox and Holly Robinson Peete, the storybook wedding lasted until 8 p.m. before moving to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel for an equally celebrity-heavy reception.
