Ravens strong safety Bernard Pollard said he was divided on what caused him more pain - his aching ribs or the frustration of being forced out of the game in the first quarter. Rookie outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw crashed into Pollard during the first quarter of the Ravens' 24-23 defeat Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field causing a rib contusion Pollard couldn't return from. Pollard went to the locker room for further examination and X-rays revealed that his ribs weren't fractured.

Fans who rush a professional sports field have to weigh the pros and cons - a few moments of glory offset by spending time in a jail cell and possibly facing criminal charges. But while the cape-wearing, clad-in-Batman-undies spectator who disrupted the Orioles' Opening Day victory has received plenty of notoriety - 100,000 views and counting for a video posted to YouTube, a write-up on the sports blog Deadspin and being a topic of discussion on morning radio - he wasn't charged for the game-halting stunt.

Thumbs up: Weak-side linebacker Jamie Sharper had his hand in everything. He stepped in front of passes, crashed into the backfield and made a solid hit on Jamal Lewis in the open field. Thumbs down: A day after being named to the All-Decade team, tight end Ben Coates didn't celebrate it well. Coates dropped three passes by trying to catch the ball with his body instead of his hands. Thumping away: Backup safety Anthony Poindexter made some noise in his first NFL training camp. Appearing fully recovered from a knee injury that kept him sidelined last year, Poindexter stuck his helmet in a few chests and sent tight end John Jones to the trainer's room after a collision.

While such PGA Tour stalwarts as David Duval , Stuart Appleby and Rocco Mediate drew followers as they went through Monday's U.S. Open qualifying, a former Open champion trudged along in near-anonymity. Steve Jones might have gotten into the Columbus, Ohio, playoff, too, if not for a bout with low blood sugar midway through his second 18 holes. Two bogeys and a double bogey in a four-hole span left him with too much ground to make up. "I felt weird," Jones said.

Christmas is a day for remembering miracles. Which is exactly what Paul Wiedorfer does.Every year, Mr. Wiedorfer is overcome with memories of a Belgian forest on Christmas Day 1944, and a company of American soldiers pinned down by German rifle and mortar fire. He remembers a young GI's solitary -- across an open field, a reckless charge that allowed his company to advance, probably saved dozens of American lives and won for the soldier his country's highest commendation, the Congressional Medal of Honor.

You might assume that mid- afternoon on a cold, January Tuesday, Soccer Dome in Jessup would not exactly be experiencing a prime-time moment. You would be right, but then the 2-year-old indoor soccer facility was not nearly as dead as you might assume, either. On the biggest of three fields, more than two dozen paying customers - all Latino men - had a fluid, drop-in game going, end-to-end, no formal teams, no coaches, no uniforms, no referee but also no arguments, substitutes entering play on-the-fly.

— For the longest time, Da'Rel Scott wore the yellow jersey. The tailback had been slammed to the turf against California in Week 3 of the 2008 season, injuring his shoulder. For weeks afterward, Scott wore the bright yellow practice jersey so the defense knew to avoid contact with him. The jersey was a fitting symbol for an obviously talented player — a legitimate NFL prospect — who has spent portions of his Maryland career not quite himself. While his time in College Park has included memorable success — he has take-your-breath-away acceleration in the open field — it has also been spent navigating around obstacles.

The 14-year-old, 6-footer from Hawaii who comes with John Daly drives but not his smoking, drinking or gambling habits, will headline the field at the U.S. Women's Open.

A day after the retirement of Steve McNair, the Ravens took the practice field not knowing who their starting quarterback is going to be. Will it be the more experienced Kyle Boller? Will it be intriguing prospect Troy Smith? Or will it be someone not even on the roster right now? Ravens coach John Harbaugh praised the work of Boller and Smith at this week's minicamp, but he didn't rule out the possibility of a rookie draft pick starting at quarterback this season. "It'll be tough for anybody to come in and win a job against [Boller and Smith]

B.J. Sams is free. Free from a broken right ankle that sidelined him for the final five games last season, including the playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Free from a driving under the influence charge. Free to focus on the one thing that has meant the most to him: playing football. "I'm feeling real good right now," Sams said of his physical and psychological states. "Everything's going real well, and I'm looking forward to bigger and better things." It's a welcome respite for Sams, whose career as a return specialist has been marked by peaks and valleys.

When trainers talk about the May 5 Kentucky Derby, more and more they're saying it's a wide-open race. But no one is quite sure if that's really the case, as most eyes today will be focused on the $750,000 Grade I Toyota Blue Grass Stakes, where Street Sense and Great Hunter are expected to turn the seven-horse race into a two-horse showdown. "There's a lot of nice 3-year-olds out there," said veteran trainer Bob Holthus, who trained Lawyer Ron in last year's Kentucky Derby and who will send Officer Rocket to post against Curlin and five others in today's $1 million Arkansas Derby.
