With SummerSlam looming, WWE quietly has put together one of the stronger cards for a small pay-per-view event in recent memory with Sunday's Battleground. While it seems like many of these feuds and matches were built to set up SummerSlam, there's no reason why they couldn't shine Sunday and also build for August. There are four matches -  Usos vs. Harper and Rowan, Bray Wyatt vs. Chris Jericho, Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins, and AJ vs. Paige -   that have the potential to be show-stealers.

The Money In the Bank pay-per-view has become a cornerstone event for the WWE every year. This year is no exception, though for different reasons than usual. With the vacated WWE World Heavyweight title, this feels like a reset of the main-event picture, for better or worse. For close to a year now, the title has been all about The Authority and the wrestlers going against The Authority. While certainly Orton, Kane and Triple H are involved at the moment, this can be used to get the belt away.

It has become apparent during the first three months of this season that the Orioles are determined not to conform to anyone's expectations, regardless of whether those expectations are good, bad or somewhere in between. Take the past nine days, for instance. The Orioles suffered a fairly disheartening loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on June 16 and then proceeded to win the next two games at Tropicana Field. They one-upped themselves in the disheartening department Friday night with what appeared to be a devastating loss to the New York Yankees before winning the next two games and defeat the seemingly-unbeatable Masahiro Tanaka in a one-sided series finale Sunday in the Bronx.

America - arguably the world's most diverse, innovative, and surprising nation - is becoming a lot more predictable. And boring. According to the most recent Pew Research Poll on political polarization, Americans are becoming more consistently liberal or conservative in their opinions, and ideological thinking is much more aligned with political party membership than before. This means that the overlap between the two parties that existed two decades ago - when there were conservative Democrats and liberal Republicans - is gone.

Chris Tillman has his own prediction to uphold when he starts for the Orioles this afternoon against the Toronto Blue Jays. The right-hander was the club's Opening Day starter in March and was expected to develop into an ace after a 16-win, All-Star season in 2013. Instead, Tillman is 5-3 with a 4.91 ERA nearing the midway point of the season. His past five games have been even worse, having allowed a combined 21 earned runs in 20 1/3 innings (9.30 ERA). While Tillman has struggled with inconsistency, starters such as left-hander Wei-Yin Chen and right-hander Bud Norris have established themselves as the Orioles' most reliable pitchers.

Evinrude pro angler Scott Martin knows from experience what to expect from the Rayovac FLW Series Northern Division stop on the Potomac River in Marbury on June 19-21, and he has high expectations. "My favorite thing about the Potomac is that you have a lot of fishable water," said Martin, who won a Walmart FLW Tour event there in 2012. "The whole river is good. This time of the year the fish will be postspawn and it will fish really similar to how I won two years ago. Everything is a little behind schedule this year, though.

Dylan Bundy is confident he can be the dominant pitcher he was before an elbow injury interrupted a promising start to his professional career. Bundy, on the cusp of pitching in his first game since 2012, spoke Thursday at Ripken Stadium, home of short-season Single-A Aberdeen and his new home for at least the next few weeks. He said his arm feels great, and he's eager to make his first start Sunday on the road against Hudson Valley. "I feel like I can be the same as I used to be," Bundy said.

A developing El Nino is forecast to suppress tropical storms and hurricanes this summer and fall, contributing to a below-normal storm season, U.S. forecasters said Thursday. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts eight to 13 tropical storms will develop in the Atlantic this year, three to six of which will become hurricanes. One or two of those could intensify into what are considered "major" hurricanes. Forecasters urged preparation despite the predictions of a below-average season, citing seasons like 1992, which came at the tail end of an El Nino and brought devastation to Florida with Hurricane Andrew.

After an unusually cold and snowy winter, many Marylanders are expected to take advantage of the sun forecast for this holiday weekend by getting out of town. More than 754,000 people throughout the state will travel between Friday and Memorial Day, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic, which is scheduled to release its annual summer travel numbers at an event Tuesday. That's a 1.7 percent increase from last year and the highest number of projected travelers since the pre-recession 2005 estimate of 865,000, the driver advocacy group said.
