Of this, there is not much debate: no one in sports has mastered the pregame speech like Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. And his gift for hyper intense gab - the way he builds to furious crescendo, cajoling those listening to rise up against an enemy that has always committed the ultimate sin of underestimating him and his brethren - will continue to make him money. Whether or not he opts to take on a broadcast role - which can be time consuming - Lewis will spend part of his future getting paid to talk.

Air Force Col. Ed Hubbard arrived in Vietnam on June 20, 1966. He was captured and imprisoned in Hanoi on July 20, 1966, just 30 days after his tour of duty began. He spent the next 2,420 days as a prisoner of war in and around the capital of North Vietnam. During more than 6 1/2 years in captivity, Hubbard and his fellow prisoners devised methods to not only maintain their sanity amid constant mental and physical stress, but to emerge from confinement in better condition than when they entered.

The Ravens' fearless leader has been seen many times barking last-minute instructions and words of wisdom at his teammates before they take the field. And this week, Lewis is in London “for a three-day minicamp with the London Warriors of the BAFA National Leagues,” according to a report by CBSsports.com. The Warriors brought in Lewis to hype them up in anticipation of their upcoming game against their crosstown rivals, the London Blitz.

"Holiday blues is the feeling of loss or sadness that you have over the holidays when, for whatever reason, you can't be with those people who have been or are special and significant. And holiday stress ... is when you have to be with some of those people!" Mark Gorkin, "The Stress Doc," a licensed clinical social worker and motivational speaker It's no revelation that the holidays can be stressful and sometimes sad. But what may be surprising, or a little alarming, is the number of people at the ready with advice, words of wisdom, common-sense approaches and collections of tips.

In May 2000, motivational speaker Kenneth N. Harris Sr. took on new responsibilities: He was tapped to be the director of government and public affairs in Baltimore, Harford and Howard counties for Comcast, the regional cable powerhouse. He holds another job, too; he represents Northeast Baltimore on the City Council. Harris was named to the Comcast post, which pays $70,000, six months after he was sworn into his council position, which pays $48,000 a year. Why should any of this matter?

Ben Vereen didn't miss his calling. He was born to be an actor, singer and dancer, and he has enjoyed considerable success in the entertainment business for at least 40 years. But it seems that he would have been just as well cut out for an entirely different career — motivational speaker. "A lot of my friends are not here, but I'm still here," Vereen said by phone from Los Angeles, the words coming in rapid-fire fashion. "I lost a daughter. I got hit by a car and was pronounced dead.

There was Martin O'Malley, preparing to declare himself a candidate for governor last week, when Peter Angelos whacked him in the head with a rhetorical two-by-four. The Orioles owner called the Baltimore mayor a "Washington suburbanite." I know, I know. This is a family newspaper, and we usually don't print such salty language. We're bracing for a bunch of angry letters, like the ones we got way back when we quoted O'Malley cursing out a certain state's attorney. But then, as now, The Sun feels obliged to lay it all out there.

When an African-American boy walks into a gifted-and-talented class, he might get the same funny feeling that Mychal Wynn's son reported to him, the motivational speaker told hundreds of Howard County teachers yesterday at Mount Hebron High School. "Everybody's looking at me," Wynn's son told him. "They thought I was lost." "In a school 46 percent black, he was the only [African-American boy] in the class," Wynn said. Wynn's message is that everyone in school has the power to influence a child.
