Jonathan Ogden was overly shy as a kid -- he once won a spelling bee while keeping his back to the audience -- and sometimes sensed others were gawking at his large physique. He has come a long way, although he still has trouble speaking in front of large groups. On the football field, though, Ogden talks a little trash in the trenches, where he has done things that have left opponents demoralized and have rendered NFL scouts speechless. "You have to turn yourself into a different person out there," said the normally mild-mannered Ogden . "You have to want to abuse the person you're playing against.

With an expertly timed delayed blitz late in the first quarter Sunday, Ravens rookie inside linebacker C.J. Mosley shot through a gap in the Indianapolis Colts' offensive line. As quarterback Andrew Luck wound up, Mosley crushed him, popping the football into the air and into the arms of defensive tackle Haloti Ngata for an interception. It wasn't the only impactful play the first-round draft pick and reigning Butkus Award winner delivered during the Ravens' 20-13 road loss Sunday.

Your browser does not support iframes. Nick Markakis has seen Adam Jones make his share of spectacular defensive plays over the years, so the right fielder might be the best judge of the center fielder's talents. And Markakis said after Monday's game that the double-play that Jones turned in the sixth inning of the Orioles' 9-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Camden Yards might be one of the best he has seen his teammate make. With two runners on base and no outs, Rays third baseman Evan Longoria lofted a fly ball that appeared to be headed over the left-center field fence and into the Orioles bullpen.

Darting from rack to rack at Rave Reviews - a consignment shop run by Howard County General Hospital's Volunteer Auxiliary - store manager Christa Pence is a whirlwind of activity. Using fashion sense she gained from 20 years in the industry as a model and a buyer, Pence has a knack for matching customers with clothes that suit them and make them feel good. Rave Reviews, in Hickory Ridge Village Center on Freetown Road, has been open for six years. The shop carries casual, professional and special-event clothing and accessories for women sizes 2 to 2X. The business brings in almost $35,000 a year to benefit the hospital.

Smart Beef passed our taste tests with rave reviews.The filet mignon and rib eye steaks we cooked in the broiler were tender with a good beefy flavor.And the ground beef, prepared in a chili recipe supplied by the company, produced a better result than making the same recipe with ground chicken or turkey. The ground Smart Beef was the right texture and did not disturb the balance of flavors in any way. The company claims the ground beef is only 5.18 percent fat and our tests produced less than a teaspoon of fat in the pan.One caveat: Smart Beef may cook faster than typical beef because of the lower fat content.

Queen Latifah can get a Golden Globe nomination with one musical number tied behind her back. She had to, since one of her big musical numbers in Chicago, which opened Friday and earned her a best supporting actress nomination, was dumped. "Class" is one of the crowd-pleasing numbers in the Broadway show on which Chicago is based, and you can spot the moment when Latifah and Catherine Zeta-Jones are about to sing it, but then the movie cuts away from them. "We shot it, we shot it," assures Latifah, by phone.

Balloons fell from the SECU Arena rafters, the marching band moved to the beat of Green Day's rock anthem "Holiday," and the Towson men's basketball team's starting lineup was introduced under a spotlight at home for the first time in the program's 54-year history. The crowd roared in approval as the lights dimmed and the four-level scoreboard overhead pulsated, a moment that would have been impossible in the old Towson Center, which was retired in March. And between the black-and-gold bleachers of a $68 million arena, the Tigers faced more pressure than ever to prove that last season's luster wasn't merely fool's gold.

When Dave Whitman arrived at work at 5 a.m. Saturday, he knelt on the track at Pimlico Race Course and grasped a handful of soil. Glop, it was not. Despite a line of storms that drenched the area for much of the past week, the Preakness would be run on a fast track. Whitman, director of track maintenance, had fooled nature again. Not only did Pimlico weather that 11/2 inches of rainfall, the course actually had to be watered between each race Saturday. Trucks sprayed nearly 50,000 gallons of city water on the track to keep down the dust on a day when millions of race fans were watching.

My column several weeks ago about Thomas J. Greco and Karl D. Spence's recently published book, "Dining on the B&O: Recipes and Sidelights from a Bygone Age," brought a flood of mail, phone calls and e-mails from readers who fondly recalled their absolutely marvelous experiences of eating a meal in a railroad dining car as the ever-changing scenery slipped by the window. I was hoping at least a couple of readers might offer a less-than-glowing review of the B&O's food - you know, two sides to a story - but not one complained, thus leaving the carrier's reputation of having prepared and served the best five-star dining car meals in the nation intact.

When Paul Kruger arrived as the Ravens' second-round pick from Utah, Terrell Suggs was clearly the leading man, a Pro Bowl linebacker who would sign a $63 million contract making him one of the highest-paid defensive players in NFL history. But Kruger was the diligent understudy despite being inactive for seven of the first 11 games, learning his lines in case he was needed. Radio sports-talk callers and the Internet blogs and message boards clamored for Kruger to make an appearance, especially when Suggs was injured two weeks ago. Kruger stepped into the spotlight Sunday night at M&T Bank Stadium.

There were no record shops in the neighborhood, and the nearest one was two bus rides away. The tiny, hopelessly conventional Welsh town where Aimee Anne Duffy grew up offered next to nothing in the way of soul education. But years later, the singer, who goes by just her last name, would find the earthy stylist within. A new world opened up when, at about age 19 or 20, she discovered the sounds of Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke and other legends from soul's golden era. Such vintage sounds largely inspired Rockferry, her critically lauded, gold-selling debut that was released in March.
