Last year, the Strand Theater Company , "dedicated to providing opportunities for women actors, designers, directors, and writers," scored quite a coup with the appointment of noted writer and performer Rain Pryor as artistic director in time for its fifth season. Unfortunately for the company, Pryor's own career took off anew during the season, with a popular run of her one-woman show in New York, and she decided it was best to step down from the Strand post. Pryor will be succeeded by Elissa Goetschius, a director and dramaturg who has worked in the area with Glass Mind Theatre, EMP Collective and Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company.

During the sweltering months of this past summer, Matt Pryor realized he was completely burnt out from writing and touring as a singer-songwriter. This breaking-point (or as he facetiously describes it, his "come-to-Jesus moment") makes sense when you remember he and his most famous band - pop-punk pioneers the Get Up Kids - released their debut album, "Four Minute Mile," in 1997. So Pryor, a 34-year-old stay-at-home dad living in Lawrence, Kansas, explored his other interests.

The first time Rain Pryor visited the intimate Strand Theater, she knew she was in the right place. "I thought, 'It smells like theater. I'm home,'" says the actress, comedian, writer and musician who has just been named artistic director of the Strand. This 55-seat venue, part of the artistically bustling Station North district, was founded in 2008 by Jayme Kilburn to showcase women - performers, directors, writers, designers. Pryor, who relocated to Baltimore from Los Angeles about five years ago, only recently became acquainted with the theater, but she seems thoroughly comfortable there already.

Some of you were ready to get me fitted for a straitjacket last week for simply asking you if the Ravens should consider drafting Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the NFL supplemental draft as a wide receiver or a tight end. Well at least I will be joined in the insane asylum by ESPN.com senior writer John Clayton. On his list of five teams that may take a chance on Pryor, Clayton suggested the Ravens as a possibility . They were third on his list of teams behind the Raiders and the Dolphins.

He's a mystery man Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune Terrelle Pryor is a total wild card in the NFL's supplemental draft. Most teams have no use for him because he is an unconventional quarterback who is inconsistent as a decision maker and a thrower. A few teams might fall in love with his athleticism and define him to be a poor man's Cam Newton. Another handful might project him to be a wide receiver. It's difficult to imagine Pryor being taken before the third round of the draft or after the fifth.

Suspended five games for breaking NCAA rules by accepting improper benefits from a tattoo parlor and perhaps facing further punishment for other misdeeds, embattled Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor announced through his attorney Tuesday that he would not play for the Buckeyes this upcoming season. Pryor is eyeing entry to the NFL through the supplemental draft -- the same route Maryland’s Jared Gaither took to the Ravens in 2007 -- but labor uncertainty could lead him to the Canadian Football League first.

Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said Tuesday he believes quarterback Terrelle Pryor will be "fine" as the team prepares for Saturday's game against Indiana. Pryor injured his left quadriceps during the third quarter of last week's game against Illinois. He missed a series, but returned later in the period and helped the second-ranked Buckeyes to a 24-13 victory. "I would expect every day he'll get closer to 100 percent," said Tressel at his weekly news conference. "I don't know who's 100 percent after five games … but I think he'll be fine.
