Maryland football is losing one game scheduled for M&T Bank Stadium. According to multiple officials, the Virginia Tech-Maryland game - which had been planned for 2014 - is now officially off the books since the Terps are departing the Atlantic Coast Conference after the 2013 season. But look for Maryland to return to the Ravens' stadium as soon as 2015. The Terps have done well there - they drew 69,348 to the stadium for a season-opening win over Navy in 2010 - and Maryland's future schedules will obviously include some big-name, Big Ten teams that could fill an NFL stadium.

MAYBE IT'S just me, but news that workers have completed installation of artificial turf in The Stadium That Should Have Been Named For Johnny Unitas feels like the stuff of minor milestone - on a level with McDonald's selling a crab cake. Can you say ersatz? The Ravens give a lot of reasons for putting in synthetic grass - it will last 15 years, it won't need watering or mowing, grounds crews won't have to resod the playing field during the rigorous (10 home games) football season because of wear and tear.

Doug Wetzel stood smiling yesterday at the temporary center of the lacrosse universe - known at other times as M&T Bank Stadium - with a bratwurst in one hand, a lacrosse stick in the other and "JHU" carefully penned on both cheeks. "JHU" was carefully penned on both cheeks of his 7-year-old son, Christian, too. Wetzel never attended the Johns Hopkins University. He is not from Maryland. Yet he, his wife, Ginger, and their three boys drove down Friday from their home in Wilton, Conn., to meet up with four other families from New York, New Jersey and North Carolina, for a weekend celebration of tailgating, tourism and lacrosse.

Terrorist attacks on stadiums - such as ones being simulated by local authorities today in Baltimore - aren't merely figments of Hollywood's collective imagination. Intelligence findings, including one circulated to law enforcement agencies 11 days ago, suggest that extremists may view sports facilities as tempting targets that offer a powerful combination of publicity and mass casualties. Though there has been no indication that Baltimore's stadiums are at any particular risk, the Ravens, Air Force and University of Maryland Medical Center will conduct a number of drills with local police and fire personnel today to prepare for just such a disaster.

Old Man Summer met 75,000 mostly young concertgoers at PSINet Stadium yesterday for an event billed as Baltimore's biggest rock festival, and a good time was had by most.From the breeze-blessed top level of the stadium, Michelle Kovaleski, 31, and Jim Davis, 35, peered down upon the distant, flailing crowd surfers at the 10th annual HFStival, as the sound of Silverchair drifted up. Kovaleski and Davis were glad to be far above the packed stadium floor, where the average age was about two-thirds of theirs.

Gov. Martin O'Malley's Super Bowl tickets went to a pair of top aides and a city delegate, the administration said this week.  As governor, O'Malley has a state skybox at Ravens stadium, which allows him to purchase up to eight Super Bowl tickets, ranging in price from $950 to $1,250 apiece. O'Malley and his wife, Baltimore District Judge Catherine "Katie" Curran O'Malley, used two of those tickets and paid for them with personal funds. Three other pairs of tickets were purchased at face-value by the governor's public affairs director, Stephen Neuman; state budget director T. Eloise Foster; and State Del. Shawn Z. Tarrant, a Baltimore Democrat.   O'Malley spokeswoman Raquel Guillory has said no taxpayer funds were used for the trip.

Hundreds of Ravens fans started lining up as early 6 a.m. outside M&T Bank Stadium to pay their last respects to former owner Art Modell. Mourners and fans lined up by his flag-draped casket, shook hands with his sons, John and David Modell, and touched the Vince Lombardi Trophy, which sat beside his coffin. Frank Sinatra tunes play in the background as the service continues under a canopy at the 50 yard line. John Ryan of Aberdeen was the first in line at 6 a.m. "I think it was awfully nice of his family to have this for the public," Ryan said.

Starting in the 1960s, and for about the decades, I was an avid Orioles and Colts fan. My brother and I would listen to WBAL on Sunday mornings in an attempt to buy unused Colts tickets. As soon as the Orioles schedule came out, I would order tickets to at least six home games. I attended the last Orioles game played in Memorial Stadium, and left there with tears in my eyes knowing I would never see another major league game again. I still am a fan of both the Orioles and Ravens on TV, and in the newspaper, but I have never been to Oriole Park, or Ravens Stadium.

On Thursday afternoon, as most of America fusses over basting and trussing, Tracey Despeaux will be pulling into Ravens stadium with a movable feast. From the back of her purple-painted bus, she'll unload turkey, yams, string beans and corn, pies, ham, rolls and potatoes. She'll arrange the bounty around festive dried husks and pumpkin-scented candles. Then she and the rest of the Pasadena Ravens Roost will gather round fold-out tables to enjoy Thanksgiving. "Everybody sitting down together," Despeaux says.

I read with great interest Tom Horton's article Friday in The Sun ("Saving the bay on a budget," Nov. 18). As a kid who swam in the bay at Bay Ridge Mago Vista and Cottage Grove beaches I am always interested in keeping this body of water clean. Although I am not going to put up a clothesline because then I would have to iron my permanent-pressed pants and shirts. But that is another story. We see all the adds from BGE about conserving energy, yet right across from their solar yard along I-395 are two of the biggest energy wasting places in town.

Don't try to convince Jason Siemer that Wednesday's U2 concert is only a rock show. He knows better. "For me, U2 is about a spiritual connection," says Siemer, 36, who runs a video production company out of his Locust Point home. "I literally cry at every U2 concert. There is a powerful energy that you cannot help but feel. " Jill Marino, who will be coming from New Jersey for the show, may not be as emotional, but she's just as excited. "After this summer, I will have seen them 16 times," she says.
