Lyle Alzado, who became a crusader against steroid use when he was found to have brain cancer a year ago, died yesterday at age 43.The NFL's defensive player of the year in 1977, he played 14 years for the Denver Broncos, Cleveland Browns and Los Angeles Raiders, retiring after the 1985 season. He tried a brief comeback in 1990 that ended in Raiders training camp.Alzado attributed his brain cancer to steroid use, but there is no proof linking the two. He said he began using the drug in 1969 and spent $20,000 to $30,000 a year on steroids in the days before the NFL tested players for the performance-enhancing drugs.

It appears the Seattle Seahawks flew back from Washington on the same Delta plane that the Orioles took back after their American League Division Series sweep of the Tigers, and punter Jon Ryan took issue with the differences in the menus . Well well well Delta I can't help but notice that the Orioles menu looked better than ours today. I'll remember this. pic.twitter.com/3wszqY1Y29 - Jon Ryan (@JonRyan9) October 7, 2014 Each featured a filet, a chicken dish and a few salads.

Sunday Broncos vs. Seahawks Monique Jones Last week: 2-0 Overall: 166-99-1 Broncos 24, Seahawks 14 After all of the talk surrounding weather, it doesn't look like it will be much of an issue Sunday. That is a good sign for Peyton Manning and the Broncos. Seattle may have a stingy defense, but if anyone can find his way around it, it's Manning. Mike Preston Last week: 2-0 Overall: 160-105-1 Seahawks 27, Broncos 24 The Seahawks will pressure Peyton Manning up the middle, and their secondary will press Denver's receivers to throw off timing.

Don't bother asking the Ravens about redemption. They're not interested in framing the 2014 season that way. In fact, they'd just as soon not discuss last season - 8-8 record, no playoffs, lousy statistics for big-money players, off-field embarrassments - at all. “That is for you guys to talk about,” wide receiver Torrey Smith said, summing up the general outlook. “Last year was last year.” But with a team built largely around the same core of star players and decision-makers, the Ravens know questions loom.

Well, I thought it could not get worse, but it did. The two women who sang our patriotic songs at the Super Bowl were even worse than the two who sang at the president's inauguration. Congratulations to the children from Sandy Hook who were perfect in their pitch and hit all the right notes and by comparison made the two women sound pathetic. I repeat, listen to Kate Smith's recordings of "God Bless America" or find other careers. Sueanne Greenwood, Timonium Text NEWS to 70701 to get Baltimore Sun local news text alerts

Bourbon Street has been one of the most famous New Orleans attractions for about 200 years, but I'm wondering if even the pirates who once walked the famous cobblestones would have been shocked and embarrassed by what it has become. Think of The Block on steroids ... or that deer antler stuff. Strip clubs everywhere, each with an irritating barker offering a free glimpse of what you can see pretty much for free all day long during Mardi Gras starting next week. There was even one club that advertised “Live Love Acts,” and I'm pretty sure they weren't talking about Ray Lewis and Ray Rice hugging after the Ravens shocked the Denver Broncos.

Susan Reimer, you are obviously pro-choice ("Keep politics out of the Super Bowl," Feb. 1). If you don't like the pro-life commercial, then pony up and buy your own Super Bowl commercial. It's called freedom of speech. I guess all the other Super Bowl commercials showing off scantily clad women promoting beer, godaddy.com or whatever doesn't offend you. Go figure. Tim Tebow's commercial with his mom is promoting life. How would you feel if your mother had decided to terminate her pregnancy carrying you?

I can picture it now. A triumphant Drew Brees holds the Super Bowl trophy aloft as confetti rains down on him and fireworks explode around the Miami stadium. A voice asks, "Drew Brees. You've just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do next?" And instead the usual plug for Disney World, he says, "I'm going to crisscross this nation of ours promoting heath care reform, banking regulation, immigration reform and term limits!" The Super Bowl, a national holiday devoted to beer, football and food, has gone political.

The Baltimore-based officers of the Cable Ship Resolute, who are working in the United Kingdom this winter, watched this year's Super Bowl at the Walkabout Pub in Bristol in southwest England. It was one of half a dozen venues in that city featuring Super Bowl parties. The place was packed and the locals were very much into the game. The room was pretty evenly split between Ravens and 49ers fans, with our table of 10 mostly from Baltimore. The game started at 11:30 p.m. local time and went until 3:30 a.m. but it was well worth it. It's great to see American football thriving over here, and it was even better to see the Ravens take the Lombardi trophy.

OK, I'm sure you'll start thinking about the Orioles in roughly 10 days when pitchers and catchers report to Sarasota. Right now, you have other sporting things on your mind. I get that. This week the bar is adorned in purple and black. I had to borrow the colored lightbulbs from a Deadhead couple I know. Hope you like the special touches in here. We haven't done a Prediction Friday in a while. But boy is this the perfect time to do it. We can't just be all football in here this weekend.

As usual, the Super Bowl champions suffered a drain of talent in the offseason. But that won't stop the Seattle Seahawks from winning a second straight NFL title. Repeating as champion is difficult, so much in fact that the last team to do it was the New England Patriots after the 2003 and 2004 seasons. The Seahawks also lost two offensive starters in free agency, and they cut two on defense to alleviate salary cap concerns. But Seattle is still loaded, especially on defense, which should carry it to the Super Bowl where the Seahawks will defeat either the Denver Broncos or the Patriots from the AFC. The Seahawks have allowed the fewest points in the league the past two seasons.

It was two years ago when Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco outdueled San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick during Super Bowl XLVII and was named Most Valuable Player after delivering three touchdown passes and zero interceptions. During the Ravens' joint practice sessions with the 49ers that wrapped up Monday, Kaepernick said he remained impressed with how Flacco throws the football. "I like him as a quarterback," Kaepernick said. "He just sits back there and he picks people apart.

Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith admits that he's unsure how the joint practices with the San Francisco 49ers, which will take play from Saturday to Monday at the Under Armour Performance Center, will work out. But he's knows what he could do to make them a little more intense. “I might wear my Super Bowl ring out to practice,” Smith joked. “Hopefully, Coach [John] Harbaugh's brother isn't mad at me for that call or non-call, whatever you want to call it.” Smith, of course, is referring to the Ravens' 34-31 victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.

One might not associate ocean fishing with 100-pound fish, sponsorships and millions in cash prizes. But for fishing boat captain Ted Deppe, that's what it is. The 52-year-old from Crownsville, along with two crewmates and five anglers, spend much of their free time competing in ocean fishing competitions, and have been very successful - so much so that Deppe's team was recently offered a sponsorship from Under Armour, which pays for its gear....

Sinclair Broadcast Group boosted profit and revenue in the first quarter, citing better-than-expected spending on political advertising, strong gains from Super Bowl and Olympics ads, and lower expenses at many of the company's television stations. The Hunt Valley-based broadcaster reported first-quarter income of $27.2 million, or 27 cents per share, nearly 60 percent more than the $17 million, or 21 cents per share, it earned in the first three months of 2013. The results beat analysts' forecasts of 22 cents per share, yet its stock slid 2 percent Wednesday to close at $28.13 a share.

Longtime NFL quarterback Earl Morrall, who filled in for an injured Johnny Unitas during the 1968 season and was named the league's Most Valuable Player for leading the Colts to the Super Bowl , died on Friday in Florida. He was 79. Morrall played 21 pro seasons and started at quarterback for five NFL teams, but he will be remembered as the ultimate understudy because of that '68 season with the Colts and the 1972 season in which he took over for an injured Bob Griese for nine games and helped lead the Super Bowl champion Miami Dolphins to a historic 17-0 record.

Dodge flexes its muscle Steve Johnson Chicago Tribune The best ad was for the Dodge Charger. The clever, self-mocking script listed the many accommodations domesticated men make: "I will put the seat down," "I will watch your vampire TV shows with you," and so on. And because of this, it concluded, "I will drive the car I want to drive," positing the reborn Charger muscle car as "Man's Last Stand." Why it worked: It was cleverly written, and the visuals - a series of men staring blankly at the camera - were arresting.

I used to get blamed all the time for stuff Bob Steinback said. To be fair, it wasn't always blame -- sometimes it was credit -- and it went both ways. Sometimes, he had to explain to people that it was not he who had written a certain thing, but me. Robert L. Steinback was, as I was and still am, a columnist for The Miami Herald, and and we shared a certain superficial physical similarity, both of us bearded, bald and black. That said, we really didn't look a lot alike. For one thing, I wear glasses and Bob doesn't.

Former Ravens running back Damien Berry's Super Bowl XLVII ring has been sold for $43,008, according to Goldin Auctions. A former reserve player from the University of Miami who spent the 2012 season on injured reserve, Berry sold his ring and it was put up for consignment through a third party. Berry initially disputed that he had sold the ring before Goldin Auctions provided proof of a sales agreement and check made out to the former NFL player. Berry is no longer disputing the sale.
