The Loyola men's basketball team has reasserted itself into the hunt for the Patriot League regular-season title with back-to-back wins against Lehigh on Saturday and Lafayette on Monday. With a 3-2 record in the conference, the team sits in fifth place in the standings. The Greyhounds (8-8 overall) are 5-2 at Reitz Arena, including 3-0 against Patriot League foes, but they are winless in two road games in the conference. Coach G.G. Smith knows that record is going to have to change as the team prepares to visit Boston University on Monday and Bucknell on Wednesday.

For nine years, Bobby Nyk didn't miss a single Ravens game, home or away. That home streak is impressive enough, but it was all those away games that earned him the nickname "The Ravens Road Warrior. " It's a moniker worn proudly by the 62-year-old Baltimore native, who spent most of those nine years working for the team as a DJ outside the stadium on game days. "I don't think anyone's been to more away games than me, except for maybe Nestor Aparicio," the retired Howard County teacher says, referring to the Baltimore radio sports personality and rabid Ravens fan. "Him, and of course the players.

On a fast track Ludacris' new movie, 2 Fast 2 Furious, might not be Academy Award material, but it definitely displays the power of the pedal. If you want to see that kind of rubber-burning, tire-screeching action in an up-close and personal setting, head to the Maryland International Speedway this weekend for NOPI's The Fast and the Furious Racing Series. A traveling group of professional drag racers will be smoking up the track in Mechanicsville, beginning Saturday at 10 a.m. Other events, such as foam parties and bikini contests, will take place throughout the weekend.

NEWARK, N.J. - Tucked in the middle of downtown Newark, Riverside Stadium can hold about 6,200 fans, but on days the Atlantic League's Bears are playing, the 4-year-old stadium with an elevated view of the New York skyline is usually half-full. On Sunday, 3,738 were on hand to see the Bears play the Pennsylvania Road Warriors, and they were treated to a group of Clydesdales carting out the team mascot, Rip N' Ruppert, a water-chugging contest and old television show theme songs, which played over the sound system when Road Warriors came to bat. It was an unlikely place to see the greatest leadoff hitter of all time.

Jimmie Johnson and Kurt Busch have just been downgraded to the undercard in NASCAR's contentious Summer Slam Series. Make way for Greg Biffle and Boris Said. Their post-race road rage at Watkins Glen on Monday had all the feisty elements necessary for a full-blown rivalry. It doesn't get any better than Said calling Biffle a "scaredy cat" and asking people to text him Biffle's address so he can make an unexpected house call and show him a little vigilante justice. NASCAR officials are investigating the incident because punches were thrown.

Monday night, Ravens fans are finally going to get what they've been talking about since January — a football game that counts in the standings. But for many of the team's most fanatical followers — those either too impatient or too passionate to wait two more weeks for the first regular-season game of the year at M&T Bank Stadium — it's not enough. They need to be there, even if that means a foray into hostile football territory. Matt Gramil is making his seventh trip to a Ravens away game, heading to the New Meadowlands Stadium for today's season opener against the New York Jets with a group of friends eager to start heckling the notoriously ornery Big Apple fans on their home turf.

In football terms, today's NFC championship game between the NFL's No. 2 offense, the Seattle Seahawks, and the league's No. 3 defense, the Carolina Panthers, is a quintessential conflict between irresistible force and immovable object. But perhaps just as intriguing is that it features a struggle between the conference's most ungracious hosts, the Seahawks, playing at deafening Qwest Field, where they are undefeated this season, against the NFC's rudest guests, the Panthers, with an 8-2 road record.

Talk about impulse buying: The weather this past week may have had you wishing you could trade in your car for a cross between a jeep and a tank.And if a salesman for AM General Corp. had been chugging up your icy street in a brand new Hummer, there's no doubt about it: You would have been tempted to sign the dotted line on the spot.Hummer is the rugged -- its big knobby tires come up to your waist -- civilian version of the all-terrain Humvee that AM General produces for the military.It's not a thing of beauty.

Hardly a week goes by without another conference or seminar on the so-called information superhighway. The participants, like the faithful trekking to Lourdes, are looking for miracles and a vision of the future. Almost without exception, they come away unfulfilled.What's going on in the world of news, information and entertainment -- what used to be called the media -- is nothing short of a revolution. And, like many revolutions, this one is messy and out of control.Truth often takes a back seat to exaggeration and rumor.
