At this time of year, as Morstein's Jewelers fields calls from shoppers trying to make the Christmas Day deadline, third-generation owner Sonny Morstein finds himself asking the same question. "This is probably over 45 years of saying, 'Why are they waiting until the last minute!'"he said, estimating that about 40 people swung through his doors on Light Street in Federal Hill Tuesday. "They call and we say, 'Well, if you're coming, we'll wait for you.'" As a slower-than-expected holiday season winds down, many retailers may be wishing they had Morstein's problem.

There are three finalists competing for the Walter Payton Award, which is given to the most outstanding player in the Football Championship Subdivision. As far as Rob Ambrose is concerned, there is only one deserving winner, and that player is Towson junior running back Terrance West. As West's coach, Ambrose does not pretend that his perspective might not have a black-and-gold tinge. But after watching West set a FCS playoff single-game record with 354 yards and five touchdowns in the seventh-seeded Tigers' 49-39 upset of No. 2 seed Eastern Illinois in Saturday's NCAA tournament quarterfinal -- outdueling Panthers senior quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (321 yards and two scores)

CHARLESTON, Ill. - Towson's Terrance West had no idea he had set a record. "I did? Records don't mean nothing. Our focus is on a national championship," he said. The junior running back rolled up an FCS playoff-record 354 yards and five touchdowns on 39 carries Friday night as the seventh-seeded Tigers advanced to the FCS semifinals with a 49-39 win over No. 2 Eastern Illinois at snowy O' Brien Field . West broke a 14-year-old record held by Georgia Southern's Adrian Peterson , who rushed for 333 yards against Massachusetts in 1999.

The Ravens' pass rush has been silenced, failing to record a sack and only hitting the quarterback five times during the past two games. Since sacking New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith three times on Nov. 24, the pass rush has slowed down. "I don't think it's a product of what people are doing differently," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "They're getting the ball out pretty quick. There haven't been a lot of downfield route type things. We had some maximum protection [Sunday]

The forecasts say 4 inches of snow are expected, but be prepared for a blizzard -- Jim Cantore is coming. The Weather Channel meteorologist, whose Twitter bio says he is "[a]lways awaiting mother natures latest temper tantrum", plans to do morning live shots from Baltimore, he said on the microblogging website Monday afternoon. Cantore is known for coming to town any time extreme weather strikes.  Of course, mayhem doesn't always follow Cantore. He reported from Washington, D.C., last March when the capital city, as well as Baltimore, were forecast to get hit with a snowstorm dubbed by many the "Snowquester".

I like capitalism. Specifically, I like the idea that if I write a better book, have a better idea, build a better mousetrap, I will be rewarded accordingly. A system where everyone gets the same reward regardless of quality or quantity of work is inconsistent with excellence and innovation, as the mediocrity and inefficiency that beset the Soviet Union readily proves. The woman who is successful under capitalism gets to eat steak and lobster whenever she wants. That's never bothered me. What does bother me is the notion that the unsuccessful man who lacks that woman's talent, resources, opportunities or luck should not get to eat at all. There is something obscene in the notion that a person can work full time for a multinational corporation and earn not enough to keep a roof over his head or food on his table.

RALEIGH, N.C. - Playing one of the best all-around games of his career, Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown nearly topped his school record for rushing yards by a quarterback in a season. Brown ran for three touchdowns and passed for two more in Saturday's 41-21 victory over North Carolina State. With 138 rushing yards, Brown moved to 538 for the season. His 574 yards rushing in 2011 are a school record. Brown said his total on Saturday was aided by running backs Brandon Ross and Albert Reid , who the Wolfpack defense could not ignore on read-option plays.

The first time the Ravens' defense squared off with Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell, he manufactured his most productive NFL game. The Ravens say they've learned a lot about how to defend Bell after surrendering 93 yards on 19 carries to the 6-foot-1, 244-pound second-round draft pick during a 19-16 loss to the Steelers on Oct. 20 at Heinz Field. Heading into Thursday night's rematch at M&T Bank Stadium, Bell is a focal point for the Ravens, who have the NFL's 11th-ranked run defense.
