Not many people can say they ran underneath the Patapsco River, but now about 900 Special Olympians and their supporters can add that to their athletic achievements. The occassion was Sunday's sixth annual Fort McHenry Tunnel 5K run/walk to benefit Special Olympics Maryland. It was hot inside Fort McHenry tunnel No. 4, even though the ventilation system was on high. The lights were on and the white tiles were shimmering. A group of cadets training to be Maryland Transportation Authority Police was running in formation and shouting cadences that bounced off the tunnel walls.

I joined Christine Brennan, of "USA Today," and Howard Kurtz on "Media Buzz" today to talk about TMZ and the performance of mainstream media in covering -- or not covering -- the Ray Rice story. I was at first surpised to hear Brennan, who knows this turf as well as anyone, say an argument could be made that it is "the biggest controversy to ever hit a U.S. sports league. " But having thought about it since, I think she could be right. #sigshell { float: left; width: 320px; height: 52px; margin: 20px 0px; display: block; }

The Orioles tried to give Ubaldo Jimenez some work in a pressure-free situation Sunday afternoon, allowing the struggling right-hander to work the ninth inning with a seven-run lead. But Jimenez would last just five batters after loading the bases and walking in a run. He issued three walks and allowed a double to Brian Dozier, allowing four of the five batters he faced to reach base. After he left the mound to a chorus of boos from the hometown crowd at Camden Yards, he was charged with two more runs when Tommy Hunter gave up a two-run single that suddenly created a tense situation and a save opportunity for Zach Britton.

I love Sunday morning public affairs TV, and I had a chance today to be part of an animated discussion about why the public hates the press. Here's the video from "Media Buzz" with me and Mediaite columnist Joe Concha as guests, and Howie Kurtz as host. I love the statistic Concha brought to the table about three out of four Americans trusting the press 40 years ago versus the shameful lack of credibility today. And when I find a way to go off on Chelsea Clinton and NBC News at about the five minutes mark, I want it duly noted that Kurtz introduced the topic - not me. (But I thank him for it.)

CHICAGO - A lot of the advanced defensive metrics don't reward Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis for the defender he is. His steadiness in the outfield sometimes make you take him for granted, especially given the way he expertly maneuvers around a tricky right field corner at Camden Yards. Orioles manager Buck Showalter has said it often this year -- that Markakis is a player you likely won't fully appreciate until he's gone. And this could be his final year in an Orioles uniform.

One of the principal security gates at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport is being closed in the mornings because of congestion around the adjacent Southwest Airlines ticketing counters, according to airport, airline and Transportation Security Administration officials. The shift started last week after officials found lines at the ticketing counters were blurring into lines at the security gate for Concourse B, particularly during busy morning hours. "It has to do with the safety and commingling of passengers," said TSA spokesman Ross Feinstein, who said entering and exiting through the gate had become a concern.
