Ravens linebacker and Lubbock, Texas, native Mike Smith is entering his second NFL season. Smith played in six games on special teams during his rookie season before suffering a hamstring injury. What is your favorite movie? I don't really know if I have a favorite movie. I'm a movie person, I like all movies. I'm always at the movie theater. I'll see every single movie at the theater, no matter what it is. What was the last thing you saw? The one with Will Ferrell. There were some funny parts, but it was relatively average.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. --  Hoppertunity, the 6-1 second choice in the Kentucky Derby, was scratched from the race Thursday morning because of soreness in his left front foot. The injury was a blow to trainer Bob Baffert and to the quality of the Derby field. Hoppertunity had run well against Derby favorite California Chrome in the Santa Anita Derby, and that was without an aggressive push from jockey Mike Smith. Many observers believed he was peaking just in time for Kentucky. With the scratch, Pablo Del Monte joined the field of 20 for Saturday's race, and Churchill Downs handicapper Mike Battaglia bumped Wicked Strong to a 6-1 second choice . The odds also dropped for Candy Boy, Intense Holiday, Tapiture, Danza and Vicar's in Trouble.

The Ravens' John Harbaugh and Tennessee Titans' Jeff Fisher should be Coach of the Year candidates. But my choice is the Atlanta Falcons' Mike Smith, former linebackers coach for the Ravens. Fisher and Harbaugh already had a base on which to build, and they had good players on the roster. Smith was basically starting from scratch. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/ravensinsider)

Wyatt Cook knew what was on the line for McDonogh's wrestling team, and he delivered. The junior scored a 5-4 victory over St. Vincent Pallotti's Antonio Santoro in the final match of the day to give the host Eagles the four points they needed to defeat Good Counsel, 239.5-237, and win the Maryland Independent Schools Wrestling Tournament. The Eagles had made winning a goal since they lost last year's championship to Good Counsel by a point and a half. Cook said he knew what was on the line, and it made him a little tense at first.

NFL teams have gone 1-15 before. But how many have had their franchise quarterback get sent to Leavenworth, and then had their head coach skulk out of town before finishing his first season, leaving "Dear John" letters in his players' lockers? Yeah, give me Mike Smith. He didn't make chicken salad out of ... what Michael Vick and Bobby Petrino left behind in Atlanta. He made chicken cordon bleu. At least in Miami, when Tony Sparano was entrusted by Bill Parcells to put the pieces back together, there were pieces to put back together.

First of all, it is absolutely startling what both Mike Smith in Atlanta and Tony Sparano in Miami have accomplished. However, leaving the Ravens' John Harbaugh out of this particular discussion, I give the nod to Sparano for the most remarkable turnaround for not only this season, but perhaps all time. A year ago, the Dolphins, now 10-5, were 1-15 and seemingly bereft of talent (that win over the Ravens notwithstanding). The few veteran stars they did have, namely linebacker Zach Thomas and defensive end Jason Taylor, headed off to Dallas and Washington, respectively.

Mike Smith liked Giacomo the first time he saw him. The colt was only 2, a newcomer to John Shirreffs' barn at Hollywood Park, but Smith was smitten. Giacomo (JOCK-ah-moe) had the same beautiful, gray face as his father, Holy Bull. Smith, who was Holy Bull's regular rider, saw that immediately. And then, after breezing Giacomo for the first time, he saw that the colt had some of his father's ability as well. "I told John," Smith said, referring to Shirreffs, "that if we can just get this horse to the Kentucky Derby, then he's going to redeem his father's name."

McDonogh used its power-packed lineup to rally from a tie score with two matches left and defeat host and third-ranked John Carroll, 40-29, in a key Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference match. The match was rescheduled due to last week's snow, and set up a week where the Eagles (14-3) will also wrestle No. 14 Spalding on Thursday and No. 2 Mount St. Joseph on Friday. "Today you saw some of the hard work we've been putting in," McDonogh coach Pete Welch said.

Poker players began gathering near the entrance of Maryland Live's poker room at 7 a.m., hours before the noon opening. Nearly 1,000 waited in line when cards finally began to fall on the casino's 52 poker tables. The opening of the poker room, a 14,800-square-foot, two-story addition to the Hanover facility, gives the state its first large-scale poker venue and establishes the Cordish Cos. property as the dominant full-service casino in the Mid-Atlantic. The room won't be a financial windfall compared with other tables or slots, but it has already tapped into a younger audience that longed for a place to play.

Maryland Live Casino officials pounded through a wall near the facility's high-stakes slots and table games rooms Thursday, revealing the construction going on inside a 14,800-square-foot addition that will open next month with 52 poker tables. The ceremonial sledge-hammering marked the public introduction of poker director Mike Smith, a 20-year-veteran who has been chatting with area poker players in online forums. He has sought their feedback on how the room should be run — from which games should be played to how tournaments should be structured — and is working through final details.

She had a cool name and a hot jockey, but Fiftyshadesofhay didn't look like she had much of a chance for most of Friday's 89th Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico Race Course . Riding the 3-year-old filly for the first time, Joel Rosario also gave the horse a new reputation for being able to win coming from behind. Running near the back of the six-horse back for most of the one and an eighth-mile race, the Bob Baffert-trained horse chased down Marathon Lady to win by a neck in 1:53.73.

Cordero finished with 30 winners; he didn't have a victory on either of the final two cards.Cordero has won 13 of the last 16 titles but has not won a meet here in two years.The Saratoga title was the latest accomplishment in New York for Smith, who came to Aqueduct in November 1989 expecting to stay only a few months before success disrupted plans to go to Oaklawn Park.

Judging from the actions of coach Wade Phillips, WR Terrell Owens and CB Adam Jones, the Cowboys are either unraveling in Week 6 or playing an inside joke. This much seems clear: After losing to the Redskins and nearly the Bengals, they aren't the same team that won their first three games decisively. Phillips was so incensed by a reporter's suggestion that Dallas "stunk" against Cincinnati that he stalked off in mid-news conference. Owens went from complaining one week about his number of chances per game to crying in front of the media over the loss of a family member the next.
