The Ravens announced today that the team will hold its annual “State of the Ravens” press conference Wednesday at the team's practice facility in Owings Mills. The annual season-review press conference, which starts at 2 p.m., is our rare opportunity to chat about all Ravens topics with owner Steve Bisciotti, president Dick Cass, general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh. Last year, Bisciotti told media that he liked offensive Cam Cameron “under fire” and he endorsed Joe Flacco as their franchise quarterback.

They were called "round-robins" - a way of dividing up the stars of the new television season and the hundred or so critics who had come to Los Angeles to interview them. Instead of one unwieldy gathering, the critics divided into three groups and the stars rotated through. Maybe stars isn't the right word. These were actors on shows that had yet to air who hoped to become stars. The year was 1978, and I was the new TV critic for The Evening Sun on my first West Coast network tour, a biannual event.

Update : Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake denied Wednesday morning that the dump was paved expressly for the press conference and said the spending board's agenda incorrectly described the situation. "This work was not done in preparation for a ribbon cutting. Period," Rawlings-Blake said at a morning press conference. "It was unfortunately written that way. " Col. Alfred Foxx, head of the public works department, also denied that the work was expedited for the press event, and said that the renovation of the dump was driven by the launch of a new hazardous waste recycling program.

Sunday, when the real media was finished with Ray Lewis, one lucky fan got a personal press conference with the Ravens star. John Williams of Florida won the press conference through a Visa contest, which was promoted -- most charmingly -- through a commercial featuring Lewis and a little girl in pig-tails. The spot, in heavy circulation earlier this fall, was called "Ray Lewis' toughest interview yet. " It featured Lewis at a press conference, seated at the podium, a scrum of tough-looking media before him asking him uncomfortable questions.

President Clinton demonstrated yesterday a presidentia grasp of detail and a joy in the traditional White House press conference that has not been seen in Washington in a generation.Some other recent presidents have on occasion been as well prepared to answer reporters' questions -- even the zany ones -- but we can recall few instances of a president who was better prepared. We also can recall few instances in which a president seemed more at ease or in better spirits dueling with the Washington press corps than Mr. Clinton.

Hillary Rodham Clinton handled her first full-scale White House press conference with remarkable aplomb. When her husband spent nearly 40 minutes answering mostly Whitewater-related questions last month, we said he displayed "a master's touch." In her 66 minutes of a similar grilling and response last Friday, she was at least as good. She was responsive, showed little or no bitterness or resentfulness at the press' skepticism and answered most of the questions as fully as could be expected.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Four days after agreeing to terms with right-hander Suk-min Yoon, the Orioles made their three-year deal with the South Korean pitcher official on Monday. The club is expected to hold a press conference on Tuesday at noon to introduce the 27-year-old Yoon. He will likely be able to immediately begin working out with the club, although he can't participate in Grapefruit League games until he receives his work visa, which could take two weeks. "We are excited to bring Suk-min Yoon to the organization.

Have you seen anything this adorable today? It's a wee white lion cub that was born at the end of August at the Circus Krone in Hamburg, Germany. The little one is taking a star turn during a press conference on September 16. The rare birth of such an animal in a circus environment has prompted discussions on whether to ban wild animals from the circus.

When Howard County Police Chief William J. McMahon announced during his recent press conference that he was not going to show the self-portrait taken just before the Columbia Mall shooter began his rampage, my thought was that finally someone in the public arena gets it ( "Police say Columbia mall shooter wanted to mimic Columbine," March 12). Giving unnecessary publicity to these heinous acts provides the perpetrators the notoriety they likely were seeking. But this morning when I saw photos of the shooter splashed across The Sun's front page above the fold, my thought was "what boneheaded editorial decision justifies that?"

SARASOTA, FLA. - While Nelson Cruz's one-year, $8 million deal with the Orioles was being finalized, players spent the past few days answering questions about how Cruz would be accepted inside the Orioles clubhouse. The 33-year-old gives the Orioles the middle-of-the-order power bat the club had been searching for this offseason, but served a 50-game suspension last season as part of the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug scandal. But before Cruz was introduced to the media on Tuesday morning at the Ed Smith Stadium complex, his new teammates made a statement of solidarity that spoke volumes without saying a word.

As President Obama tries to enjoy his Christmas vacation in Hawaii (the land of his birth, as recognized by most Americans except the diehard fringe still casting him as a foreigner), he has a lot to reflect on. In his last White House press conference before departing, he exchanged tidings of good cheer with reporters. But he was also peppered with as many reminders of how badly things turned out for him in the past year. It fell to the toughest but fairest reporter in the room, ABC News' Jonathan Karl, to confront him with the bark off: "You may not want to call it the worst year of your presidency, but it's clearly been a tough year.

The highlight of the Orioles' offseason was supposed to take place Friday morning, when the club would emerge from a sleepy offseason and introduce new closer Grant Balfour during a news conference at the Warehouse. But Balfour's two-year, $15 million deal with the Orioles is now in major jeopardy, after team doctors expressed concern with Balfour's right shoulder during his physical, according to industry sources. The 11th-hour snag has forced not only the cancellation of Friday's press conference but also the Orioles' front office to consider its next move with Balfour, whom the club initially agreed to terms with on Tuesday.

COLLEGE PARK - Randy Edsall smiled. He laughed. He answered questions from reporters patiently, honestly, happily. Is this the coach of a Maryland team seemingly in free fall after Saturday's 20-3 loss to Syracuse at Byrd Stadium? Taking a three-game losing streak and a ton of criticism into Saturday's game at Virginia Tech, Edsall was surprisingly upbeat Tuesday at his weekly press conference. And quietly defiant. "I'm not going to panic," he said. "If I panic, the whole team will panic, then I'm not being the leader that I need to be for our young team here.
