Here we go again. The guests of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Gov.Martin O'Malleycan't afford their own stadium event tickets and pig-out so they are floated on the backs of taxpayers, many of whom can only dream of finding the wherewithal to attend a Ravens game with a hot dog and beer. When will the voters in Maryland wake up and throw these leech Democrats out of office? I have little hope. F. Cordell, Lutherville

The Ravens last season were demolished in Denver, bumbled through their afternoon in Buffalo, and caved in close losses at Cleveland, Chicago and Cincinnati. A team that had relished going on the road and winning in coach John Harbaugh's first five seasons became a mistake-prone, defensively challenged shell of itself whenever it ventured away from M&T Bank Stadium in 2013. The current Ravens are a far different team, players have said repeatedly in recent weeks. They can prove that and distance themselves from recent road woes by going to Cleveland and beating the rejuvenated Browns on Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium.

Opening day 2014 last week was a blast ("Opening Day is magic for fans as weather breaks and Orioles win," March 31). My husband and I went with our son and daughter-in-law, and we will come again to other games with our grandchildren, ages 4, 5 and 13. On Monday, there were two boys who were about 10 sitting two rows away who craned their necks each time the adults in the row between us "lit up" their electronic cigarettes. The boys were clearly being exposed to something new, judging from their staring and gesticulations.

The Maryland Stadium Authority has said that it now appears unlikely that the new ballpark at Camden Yards will be named after baseball Hall of Famer Babe Ruth. Although Gov. William Donald Schaefer and Baltimore Oriole owner Eli Jacobs are involved in making the decision on the name, the two most likely choices appear to be either Camden Yards or Oriole Park.The Evening Sun wants to know which of these names you would prefer for the stadium -- or whether you think some other name ought to be chosen.

Dear Stadium Doctor:I would like to know why they stopped posting the pitchers' numbers on the out-of-town scoreboard. I know they list the pitching changes in the middle portion, but I would like to know who is pitching in the other games at all times -- and the winning and losing pitchers when the games are completed.Jeff OrnerYork, Pa.Dear Jeff Orner:Thank you for calling my attention to this important matter, which, I'm sure, is troubling to many baseball fans and to parents of certain middle-relief pitchers.

CLEVELAND -- The Ravens secondary couldn't cover and tackle - and gave up a long pass that will be on every NFL highlight package this week. The linebackers had trouble getting off blocks and holding the edge on running plays. The defensive line wasn't much of a factor, either. And the Ravens still won. On a day when their defense was atrocious, the Ravens won because they played a team that always finds a way to lose. And if they don't find one, the Cleveland Browns will invent one. As the Ravens walked out of FirstEnergy Stadium on Sunday evening, they realized they were lucky to win and the best team might have lost.

The chairman of the committee seeking to bring the 2024 Summer Olympics to the Washington area said Thursday that he is intrigued by the possibility that an Olympic stadium could be built on the RFK Stadium site, perhaps becoming the future home of the NFL's Redskins. "When the ownership of the Washington NFL team talked about looking, that's probably one of the places they'd like to look, so that's something we'd like to understand better," said Russ Ramsey, who has been visiting other potential Olympic venues in Maryland and around the region.

COLLEGE PARK  -   The Maryland football team puts together a preliminary scouting report of each opponent on its schedule during the summer, scanning through last season's film to get an early feel for what a team might look like this season. For West Virginia, the tape would have shown a mediocre team that finished 4-8 and had problems on offense and defense. A year later, the Mountaineers are much better, as Terps coach Randy Edsall and his staff saw Sunday when they began reviewing West Virginia's early-season tape.

The Ravens are offering a large-scale exchange of Ray Rice jerseys next week at M&T Bank Stadium. Rice's $35 million contract was terminated Monday, and he's been indefinitely suspended by the NFL after a graphic video surfaced of him punching Janay Palmer in the elevator of Revel Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., in February. The exchanges are set for Sept. 19 and Sept. 20, allowing fans to exchange the Rice jersey for an available jersey of another Ravens player. There's no jersey exchange for Thursday night's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

For most of Ray Lewis' 17-year NFL career, his face - eyes burning, mouth bellowing exhortations - was the face of the Ravens. Johnny Unitas' flinty gaze and stooped shoulders had symbolized pro football for earlier generations of Baltimore fans, and Lewis followed in the great quarterback's footsteps, becoming an icon for the new era of purple and black ardor. The Ravens made that association official Thursday morning, unveiling a bronze statue of the retired linebacker only a few feet from the statue of Unitas that greets visitors outside M&T Bank Stadium.

When fans head through the main entrance at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday for the Ravens' regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals, they'll be greeted by a familiar sight. Ray Lewis starred for 17 seasons with the Ravens. Now he'll be immortalized next to another Baltimore sporting icon. The Ravens announced Wednesday that the statue of the middle linebacker will be unveiled Thursday at a ceremony scheduled for 11 a.m. in Unitas Plaza. Sculpted by Frederick Kail, the statue will be erected to the right of one depicting legendary Baltimore Colts quarterback Johnny Unitas outside the north entrance of the stadium.

About eight months ago, the Ravens trudged off the field at Paul Brown Stadium, a 34-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals bringing an end to their season and their streak of five consecutive playoff appearances. Ravens coach John Harbaugh and his players have grown tired of hearing about the disappointing 2013 campaign. The 2014 Ravens are a completely different team, they say. The coaching staff has been overhauled. Some veterans moved on, and rookies and second-year players were elevated into starting roles.

For only the second time since Rob Ambrose became Towson's coach, the Tigers will open the season with a game at home, welcoming Central Connecticut State to Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday at 6 p.m. The only other time in that span the Tigers played host to a season opener was in 2011, when they routed Morgan State, 42-3. Although Towson is just two games above .500 at home (15-13) under Ambrose, the program is 13-5 at Johnny Unitas Stadium in the past three years, and Ambrose said the team's recent success has had a noticeable impact in the stands.
