The American Opera Initiative, a worthy project launched last year by Washington National Opera, will be back this season with more premieres. Three 20-minute operas on American subjects, including a work by the Baltimore team of composer Joshua Bornfield and librettist Caitlin Vincent, will get their first hearings on Nov. 13 at the Kennedy Center's Terrace Theater. Bornfield and Vincent recently collaborated on "Camelot Requiem," an effective opera commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination . For American Opera Initiative, the team is creating "Uncle Alex," an opera dealing with the immigrants arriving at Ellis Island in 1907 and "an unexpected act of heroism" that ensues.

Kyle Juszczyk trudged off the Ravens' practice field as a rookie fullback a year ago, thoroughly frustrated after a training camp blocking drill in which he was stonewalled repeatedly by linebackers and safeties. In the middle of Juszczyk's unconvincing audition as an inexperienced lead blocker, veteran rush linebacker Terrell Suggs shouted that Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome needed to bring back Pro Bowl fullback Vonta Leach. Three days later, Leach was signed to return as the Ravens' starting fullback.

Courtesy of Saturday's 16-12 win against Centennial Conference rival Dickinson, No. 5 Washington College became the first team to earn a spot in the upcoming league tournament. But with two more conference games remaining, against No. 20 Gettysburg on Saturday and Swarthmore on April 26, the Shoremen are eager to capture their second regular-season title in three years. “I think when you hit that point in the season when you know that you're going to be in no matter what, it's a bit relieving, but to be honest, the focus is solely on Gettysburg and trying to finish the regular season out on a high,” coach Jeff Shirk said Wednesday afternoon.

HBO renewed its two new Sunday-night comedies 'VEEP' and "Girls' for a second season, and that's great news for the Baltimore TV and film production community. HBO made the announcement Monday afternoon via Twitter: "We're happy to announce #Veep and #Girls have both been picked up for a second season. @GirlsHBO. " The second season order on "VEEP" is for 10 episodes, which should mean about $15 million to the local economy.   I predicted an announcement within days after seeing the premiere week ratings for "VEEP.

When Maryland placekicker Brad Craddock showed up for his first lesson with Matt Stover in February, the former Ravens All-Pro was struck by how little the freshman from Australia knew about the mechanics and psychology of kicking. Yet Stover saw something in Craddock that he had seen before with others he had tutored, most notably Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee. As with Scobee, who began working with Stover when he was in high school and later at Louisiana Tech, Stover turned an athlete into a kicker.

As hard as it may be to imagine, the second and allegedly last season of The Office is better than the first, and it's being released as The Complete Second Series. This is not only one of the best British sitcoms ever, it is one of the best sitcoms ever. If you have yet to experience this alternately hilarious and excruciating show about the white-collar employees of a paper company and their pathetic, needy, utterly untrustworthy boss, you will almost certainly want to go ahead and buy Complete First and Second Series.

Welcome to a second season of Morning Shootaround. We will follow the Terps throughout the 2013-14 season, but this year in this space we will provide a look ahead rather than looking back. We will try to analyze Maryland's strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of its upcoming opponent. We also hope to provide quotes and anecdotes from practices to give some idea of what coach Mark Turgeon and his team are doing. Here are a few things to watch as the Terps get ready to play Florida State in the second round of the ACC tournament in Greensboro, N.C., on Thursday at noon.

Netflix confirmed that all 13 episodes of the second season of "House of Cards" will be available for streaming at 3:01 a.m. (ET) tomorrow (Feb. 14). There had been bad reports of a midnight launch. That's in part the result, I suspect, of careless reporting and Netflix using Pacific Time, which is three hours behind Eastern Time. But it's not even midnight Pacific Time; it's 12:01 a.m. So let's just be blunt and say those who reported it that way are bad reporters. I have never seen as much bad reporting as there is in connection with this great series.

Last year's American League Most Valuable Player race was one of the most contested in recent years, stoking a debate between two distinct schools of thought about the basis of baseball's highest individual award. This season, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis entered contention for the honor with eye-popping power and run-production numbers that were unparalled this year. But when the 2013 AL MVP was announced Thursday night, Davis' bid to become the first Orioles player to win the award in 22 years fell short to last year's top two candidates.

Nearly 30 years after they first met while living in the same East Baltimore housing project, and 20 years after they left Dunbar to play college basketball, Rodrick Harrison and Rodney Elliott are back in their hometown with a new dream. Harrison, the second-year coach at Mount Zion Prep, and Elliott, one of his assistants, are trying to give players who didn't have the grades or game coming out of high school a chance to do what they did. Harrison, who played at UMBC and was later an assistant coach at Dunbar, and Elliott, who played at Maryland before embarking on a 13-year professional career spent mostly in Europe, teamed last year with the Mount Zion Baptist Christian School in Northeast Baltimore to provide the academic support and basketball guidance for a dozen or so players each year.

But a change in the way his team approaches a football game.This week, going into what Chaump and his players are calling the "second season" of Navy football, the Midshipmen will undergo a change in preparation as they attempt to shake their season-long slump Saturday against visiting Tulane (2-6).During a team meeting on Monday -- coming off last week's 38-7 loss to Notre Dame -- Chaump and his staff came up with the following changes that are expected to carry through the rest of the season:* No Friday practices.

Moments before the first pitch in the life of the Aberdeen IronBirds a year ago tomorrow, Vi Ripken surveyed the overflow crowd of zealous fans cramming into spanking-new Ripken Stadium and observed: "Everything Junior touches seems to turn to gold." With those succinct words, Cal Ripken's proud mother summarized what would be an overwhelmingly successful venture in the hometown of the Orioles' Iron Man, one that would produce sellouts for all 38 New York-Penn League home games and catapult the IronBirds into the top tier of minor league merchandising sales.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.  -  Maryland's top two wide receivers, Stefon Diggs and Deon Long, suffered lower leg fractures in Saturday's 34-10 loss to Wake Forest and are both likely out for the season. Long broke his tibia and fibula in his right leg. Diggs broke the fibula in his right leg. “Yeah, I would think that they would be out for the year,” Maryland coach Randy Edsall said. Long was set to have surgery Saturday night, Edsall added, while Diggs likely will have his operation later this week.
