On Saturday, Ravens players Torrey Smith and John Simon will both be in Indianapolis, as the Ravens get ready for Sunday's game against the Colts. But while Smith and Simon take care of their own Ravens-related responsibilities, both will also be tracking what happens between Maryland and Ohio State on Saturday in College Park. Smith starred at Maryland before being drafted in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft by the Ravens and still follows the team closely. “I don't know about the score, but I think we can beat them,” Smith said.

No matter how well the Orioles do this season, perhaps the most improbable moment of 2014 for those who have followed this club over the past several years occurred in the third inning of the All-Star Game in Minnesota in July - and it had little to do with the current Orioles. Cincinnati Reds right-hander Alfredo Simon stepped on the mound at Target Field as a National League All-Star and faced Derek Jeter, Mike Trout, Robinson Cano and Miguel Cabrera. He retired three of the four - Jeter singled - for a scoreless inning.

The long relationship between HBO and David Simon will continue with the Baltimore filmmaker co-writing and producing "Show Me a Hero," a six-hour miniseries, for the premium cable channel. Based on the non-fiction book of the same title by Lisa Belkin, the series that explores race relations in the 1980s and '90s in Yonkers, N.Y.,  will star Oscar Isaac and Catherine Keener. Simon said in an email to The Sun that the miniseries will be filmed in Yonkers, because that's where the real-life events it covers took place.

During his rookie season last year, one of the toughest adjustments for Ravens outside linebacker John Simon was learning the nuances of pass coverage. At Ohio State, the gritty former Big Ten Conference Player of the Year lined up at defensive end, defensive tackle and linebacker while operating primarily as a pass rusher and run-stopper. Simon rarely was asked to drop back in pass coverage in college. So, playing in reverse has become a major point of emphasis for Simon following a quiet rookie year in which the fourth-round draft pick played on special teams.

In two decades of covering David Simon's television career, one thing I can say with absolute certainty is that he was never boring or predictable. And he came through again last week in an interview that I had imagined as a simple Q&A advancing the five-episode series finale of “Treme,” which starts at 9 Sunday night on HBO. In my last question, I asked what was next for him. And I was surprised to hear the creator of “The Wire,” which many analysts rightfully consider the greatest series in the history of prime-time television, say he might be leaving the medium.

A few years back, Nathan “Bodie” Barksdale had a public spat with “The Wire” creator David Simon over the extent to which he was an inspiration for drug boss Avon Barksdale in the series. All the while, he vowed that he was long out of the game. But now the Drug Enforcement Administration says Barksdale is a high-ranking member of the Black Guerrilla Family. U.S. marshals arrested him this week on federal heroin and gun charges after he spent a short spell on the run. Barksdale, 52, is accused of taking part in a heroin conspiracy with alleged drug supplier Suraj Tairu, who is also charged in the case.

Geroy Simon didn't know what to expect when he signed as a rookie free agent with the Canadian Football League's Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 1999. Fourteen years later, the former Maryland wide receiver has torn through the CFL record books on his way to becoming the most prolific pass catcher in league history. The 38-year-old Simon holds the CFL record for receiving yards (16,188), and he tied Ben Cahoon's record for most career receptions (1,017) last week. He can break that mark Sunday when his Saskatchewan Roughriders visit the Montreal Alouettes.
