The Morgan State football team found its rhythm on offense in the first and fourth quarters of its Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opener against Norfolk State. It was the middle stretch that proved to be the Bears' undoing Saturday. The offense had minus-1 yard in the second and third quarters combined, and the Spartans took advantage with 20 unanswered points en route to a 27-21 win before an announced 856 at Hughes Stadium in Baltimore. Morgan State, which has lost its first five games of the season for the first time since 2000, racked up 234 yards and three touchdowns in the opening and final quarters but could not overcome its own crippling play in between.

OIMYAKON, Russia - Here in the kingdom of cold, time itself seems frozen. Mikhail Neustroyev trudges behind a herd of 1,200 skittish reindeer crunching through a snow-glazed forest. The animals use their teeth to rip off tree bark and low-hanging branches, their frozen breath creating a lacy trail of fog. The temperature hovers around 30 below zero here in the remote Verkhoyansk Mountain range, but the herdsman says that to him it feels like a soft spring day. Neustroyev is hiking near Shaman Mountain, in the northeast corner of the Russian republic of Yakutia, a corner of Siberia almost the size of India.

Despite a foul-smelling algae bloom and fish kill this time last year, Baltimore's ailing harbor actually earned a C-minus grade overall for water quality in 2012, according to the latest ecological report card issued by the Healthy Harbor campaign. But even that mediocre rating, to be issued Monday at an Inner Harbor press conference, comes with a big asterisk, as the report card's compilers note that rainfall last year was far below normal, reducing the amount of pollution washed off city and suburban streets, parking lots and yards.

With this bowl being played in country music's capital, Seminoles coach Bobby Bowden could check on how much eligibility Brooks and Dunn have left.

An exhibit at the Johns Hopkins Evergreen House that was thrown into doubt this week is back on, but without two artworks at the crux of a dispute between the artist and the curator. The two large pieces in question — one depicting a cross, the other a mosaic of the word "Jew" — were offered as part of an outdoor exhibit by Fells Point artist Loring Cornish called "In Each Other's Shoes," to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s March on Washington.

Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen got his work in during a Class-A game Monday. Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez threw five innings Wednesday at Twin Lakes. Next week, when the Orioles play back-to-back night games Wednesday and Thursday, Showalter said he will likely throw Jason Hammel and Chen in minor league games.

Sometimes, we could all use a break from the booze. Whether you're pregnant, the night's designated driver or just not interested in a crippling hangover in the morning, abstinence has its perks. Sure, your friends are having a blast toasting with Fireball shots now, but come tomorrow, harsh reality will be there to greet them. But let's be honest - spending time at a bar nursing a tonic and lime can feel awkward and boring. That shouldn't have to be the case, and some Baltimore bars are looking to change the culture by incorporating more nonalcoholic - but still handcrafted - cocktails on their menus.

So racing returns to downtown streets today, as the Grand Prix of Baltimore takes over the Inner Harbor and Camden Yards through Sunday. The new organizers of the revived racing festival have managed to avoid the tempest over tree removal that dogged the runup to last year's inaugural event.  But they've also dropped any pretense of reducing or mitigating the noise, unfiltered racecar exhaust and other environmental impacts of the extravaganza....

La Russa had big role Phil Rogers Chicago Tribune Given that neither the Rangers nor Cardinals play in Minnesota's Metrodome, home-field advantage wasn't that crucial in the 2011 World Series. The Cardinals didn't win because they got to play the last two games at Busch Stadium, although lots of people in Texas think that (and the Rangers' 1-5 record in road games the last two Series would seem to support that). St. Louis got its World Series parade because Tony La Russa outmanaged Ron Washington, and La Russa's players were incredibly clutch.

Giving back is great Mike DiGiovanna Los Angeles Times The pluses of playing regular-season games overseas far outweigh the minuses, especially as they pertain to Japan. Considering how much that country has contributed to Major League Baseball over the past two decades — Hideo Nomo, Hideki Matsui, Ichiro Suzuki, now Yu Darvish, extensive media coverage of the game and fertile marketing terrain — it's important that the game give something back. It's good for younger, less-traveled players and those living more of a sheltered existence, to gain the cultural experience of going to another country, of visiting areas hit by the 2011 tsunami and connecting with families of storm victims.

February arrives tomorrow. Only 28 more days in the meteorological winter season, and here we are, nearly snowless. February isn't even the coldest month in Baltimore, and it's the second-driest. But it can produce some whopper snowstorms and fierce cold. The city's record minus-7 degrees was reached twice, on Feb. 9, 1934, and Feb. 10, 1899. Many can recall the biggest one-day snow - 22.8 inches on Feb. 11, 1983. Our snowiest February was four years ago, when 40.5 inches fell. BWI's seasonal average is 18 inches.

In many ways, Evan Chase and Nathan Carothers are typical high school football players. Both love the primal battle in the trenches, both skirmish fervently on game day and both embrace their teammates as family. Their high school teams, however, are anything but typical. Chase plays for the Maryland Christian Saints and Carothers plays for the Central Maryland Christian Crusaders. Neither team has an actual school. Both cater to high-school aged boys who are home-schooled or attend a school without a football program.

A group representing civil engineers reported that Maryland's transportation and water systems are in dire need of billions of dollars of repairs and upgrades as it released a study giving the state's infrastructure an overall grade of C-minus. The report Tuesday by the Maryland section of the American Society of Civil Engineers issued grades ranging from a B-minus for the state's bridges to a D for its storm-water systems. Frank Kaul, president of the state chapter, said the results were "not acceptable," adding that Maryland has been putting off investment in aging infrastructure for too long.
