For the first time in 2014, Seahawk Stadium will play host to something other than snow. No. 18 St. Mary's (3-4) will tangle with Albright (2-3) on Saturday in what will be the team's home opener in St. Mary's City. The Seahawks were scheduled to play host to Muhlenberg on March 8, which would have been their first home contest after four consecutive games on the road. But a storm that dumped 5 inches made Seahawk Stadium unplayable, and both schools agreed to play the game at Muhlenberg.

On the Ravens- Cincinnati Bengals Game This game scares me, as Cincy is playing at home and everything is on the line for them. If they lose to the Ravens, then they will have a tough time making the playoffs. How arrogant are the Bengals? You would have thought the Bengals won a Super Bowl or something. The whole thing boils down to the Ravens' secondary and pressuring [Carson] Palmer. ... If Palmer has time, he will chew the D up.

Carmelo Anthony fully expects the memories to envelop him as he trots onto the court at Baltimore Arena. The long days dribbling on the asphalt beside West Baltimore's Murphy Homes projects. The early games at Robert C. Marshall Recreation Center, when he was just a skinny, goofy kid, hoping he might become good enough to earn a college scholarship. It all happened, what, 10 minutes from the court where Anthony will suit up for the New York Knicks on Thursday night? Though his professional allegiance lies with the Big Apple, Anthony will be straight Charm City when he dons an NBA uniform for the first time in his hometown.

Towson State has the best record, a first-round bye and home-court advantage. Delaware has the best athletes and the longest winning streak. UMBC has a streak of superstition.It will be a curious mix of motivation when the East Coast Conference tournament begins tomorrow at Towson Center. Towson is pegged as the heavy favorite to repeat as champion, but almost every team brings something to the table.Take UMBC, for example. Two weeks ago, the Retrievers were a puny 2-21. Then, abracadabra, they win four in a row. Coach Earl Hawkins pinned the turnaround on players finding their "niche" in the system.

VERNDON, Va. "Didn't Dorothy say there's no place like home?" Darrell Green asked. "What do you mean, which Dorothy?"He was quoting the Kansas kid as she was finding the road wasn't easy, even when it's paved with yellow bricks.The question was why the Washington Redskins should be three-point favorites when they meet the Miami Dolphins in RFK Stadium on Sunday. (Coaches pay no attention to such venal concerns, but one assistant admitted being "flabbergasted.")On what do these 6-5 Redskins feed that they should bestride a 9-2 opponent?

CHICAGO -- When Scottie Pippen passed him on the Chicago Stadium basketball floor during media interview sessions Tuesday afternoon, Phoenix Suns forward Charles Barkley yelled at his Bulls rival and former Olympic teammate, "Hey, Scottie, want to go with me to dinner in Phoenix next week?""Sorry, Charles, but we ain't going back to Phoenix," Pippen replied with a sly smile.It was Pippen's warning that the defending champion Bulls, leading the best-of-seven NBA Finals, 2-1, would wrap up the series with victories in games 4 and 5 on their home court.

City had brief spurts of quality offense and defense in the first half of Thursday's Class 3A North quarterfinal boys basketball game against Digital Harbor, but the Knights were unable to put everything together to shake the visiting Rams. The second half was different. With swift ball movement on offense and pressure on defense, the No. 8 Knights methodically broke down Digital Harbor for a 70-52 win to advance to the regional semifinals. City, which improved to 19-5 on the season, will return to its home court Tuesday to take on Aberdeen, which beat Hereford, 59-33, on Thursday.

Since making his stunning comeback from a partially torn right Achilles tendon suffered in April, Terrell Suggs has totaled eight tackles, one sack and one batted pass in two games. But both of those games were on the road against the Houston Texans on Oct. 21 and the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. So the outside linebacker and reigning NFL Defensive Player of Year could expect a raucous reception when he steps onto the field at M&T Bank Stadium this Sunday for the first time in 2012.

For Jana Hunter, the multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter of rising Baltimore band Lower Dens, album release dates typically mean anxiety and, once they're over, relief. But on the morning her group's second album, "Nootropics," hit stores, she said this day felt different. "I'm very excited about it," Hunter said earlier this week. "I feel like a little kid celebrating a birthday or something. " It's a feeling the members of Lower Dens have earned. After the band released its critically acclaimed debut album, "Twin-Hand Movement," in 2010, the group toured beyond the point of exhaustion, leading to member departures and panic attacks.

Republican Gov. Robert McDonnell of Virginia made no secret about who he thought should win Maryland's 2010 gubernatorial campaign. It wasn't Martin O'Malley. Yet two months after O'Malley, a Democrat, sailed to victory, McDonnell showed up in Annapolis to attend the inauguration. Virginia's governor even praised the man he worked to defeat, calling O'Malley "a very smart guy" who "obviously had a record of accomplishments. " McDonnell's decision to extend the olive branch — and O'Malley's to take it — underscores a relationship between the two men that aides say has been cordial, even friendly at times.

PHILADELPHIA -- Football's regimented traditions dictate an enforced togetherness. Even teams playing at home spend the night before games in hotels. So late Saturday afternoon, less than 24 hours before they would play the despised Cowboys, the Eagles gathered at the Doubletree Hotel in Center City.Things proceeded in typically relaxed fashion. Players and coaches ate a meal of pasta, chicken and salad, then splintered into smaller groups for position sessions. Finally, at about 8:30, all the Eagles converged on a hotel ballroom for the final act of their work week, a team meeting.

Here are the eight most unlikely words you may ever read in this space: Someone at the NFL finally got it right. It will finally be possible for fans in NFL cities, like Baltimore, to see three games on a Sunday when the local team is playing at home, thanks to a vote by the league's Broadcast Committee, of which Ravens owner Art Modell is a member. Don't break out the champagne yet, for it's apparently only a one-year experiment, but one suspects that if the new Extreme Football League (XFL)

On March 12, thousands of lacrosse fanatics will filter through the gates of M&T Bank Stadium for the Face-Off Classic, eager to watch a triple header where each game could have the feel of an NCAA Tournament semifinal. The event is expected to generate significant revenue for the city, promote the game to a larger audience, and serve as a de facto celebration for a sport that continues to grow on a national stage. Playing a regular season contest in front of a large audience in an NFL stadium seems, at first blush, to be a no-lose situation.
