In 2013, Summerslam might have been the best pay per view of the year, with two Match of the Year candidates. While it might not reach that level, the card this year certainly has the potential to be memorable. Last year, both the Brock Lesnar/CM Punk match (which was my pick for match of the year) and the John Cena/Daniel Bryan match were showered with praise both from fans and critics. They were the top of a great pay-per-view, which also included an overlooked match featuring Alberto Del Rio and Christian.

New York, New York (deep in Cuomo territory) -- With only a few moments to deadline, this reporter breathlessly topped a story with scenes from a fundraiser the James Hotel in SoHo Thursday evening. Not all of the good stuff made it into the paper, so here are some extras from the notebook. The event was a fundraiser for Maryland's same-sex marriage campaign. The idea for it was hatched at a dinner a few months back with Gov. Martin O'Malley , actor Josh Charles and Brian Ellner , who ran the New York pro-same-sex marriage battle.

You can't say IndyCar lacks for stories. There's Helio Castroneves, the photogenic Brazilian driver who won "Dancing With the Stars" and currently leads in his quest for a first season championship. There's his countryman, Tony Kanaan, an affable veteran who brought tears to the eyes of many racing lovers when he finally won the Indianapolis 500 this year. Yet IndyCar faces a vexing question as drivers prepare for Sunday's third Grand Prix of Baltimore. Why aren't Castroneves, Kanaan and their peers perceived as national stars on par with their NASCAR counterparts or past greats such as Mario Andretti and A.J. Foyt?

Paula Campbell can't remember the last time there was a bigger hip-hop show in town. Salt-n-Pepa played 1st Mariner Arena in February, but though they're pioneers in the genre, they're now better-known for their reality TV show. Wu Tang Clan performed in Baltimore in December, but that was at Sonar , not an arena. Wiz Khalifa sold out two nights at Rams Head Live in December, but he's still an upstart. The last time there was this much star power on stage, Campbell said, would have to go back to the start of the decade, when Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Dr. Dre and the recently deceased Nate Dogg played the arena on their Up in Smoke Tour.

It's a busy Friday in the newsroom. So what are we doing? We're wasted time arguing about stupid stuff, of course.  The topic of today's debate: Kristen ("K-Stew") Stewart and her relative worth to society.  b music guru Wes Case misguidedly made up the sole member of the office's pro-Kristen Stewart faction. His reasoning? "She's a great actress. She has depth. She has star power. When she's on screen you want to watch her. Also, she smokes weed, which makes her one of us. " Assistant editor Jordan Bartel and I, however, failed to see Stewart's value in movies or, well, any other area of life.  That was the case until I saw the below video.

When a program captured five national championships - most recently in 2011 - it's almost impossible to be ignored. But that's how Virginia has been feeling this season. Despite a 5-1 record, the No. 13 Cavaliers have been coasting through February and March without much media scrutiny or fanfare. And that doesn't bother coach Dom Starsia one bit. “This is a year in which we're better served to be able to work on ourselves for a while before we step out,” he said Friday morning.

At Tark's Grill, diners arrive early for a shot at Table 601, with views of the patio scene and the goings-on at the bar. At Hampden's hot new Food Market, regulars have started zeroing in on the two quiet tables by the front window. And at Kali's Court, regulars are willing to squeeze eight people around Table 2, which comfortably seats four. How does a table go from run of the mill to top of the heap? A beautiful view helps. In this clubby business town, it's still see-and-be-seen, and many hall-of-fame tables put diners front and ever-so-slightly off-center.
