It has never been something that the Ravens have had to worry about. From 2006 through 2012, Sam Koch only had two of his 558 punts blocked. However, what hadn't happened since 2006 has now occurred twice in the past six weeks, making punt protection a point of emphasis heading into Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field. Ravens assistant head coach and special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg said that the team has addressed the miscommunication that resulted in Koch getting his punt blocked by tight end Ryan Taylor in the second quarter of the Ravens' 19-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers last Sunday.

BOYS Rodney Spruill Walbrook, basketball Coach Kelvin Bridgers calls this 6-foot-4, 240-pound player "a guard in a forward's body" for his clutch play on the perimeter and his role as the big man on an undersized team. The junior's inside-outside game was on display in last week's Baltimore City League victories over City and defending Class 3A state champion Douglass. Spruill had 19 points, 14 rebounds and two blocks in a 78-55 win over City, and 25 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks in a 68-63 decision over Douglass.

Like American jurisprudence, the University of Baltimore's new $114 million law school is complicated and thoughtful. Staircases bridge across and spiral through the 12-story building's vibrant atrium, connecting a labyrinth of classrooms and study spaces with faculty offices, clinical facilities and a research wing. Sunlight is inescapable, reducing the need for artificial lighting, and the concrete slab floors encase heating elements that also cut down on energy use. Colors like "margarita" and "banana yellow" pop from walls and ceilings, the sounds of a waterfall echo throughout the glass edifice and square chandeliers are strung like falling confetti.

Neither team had been playing well lately when No. 7 Old Mill visited bitter neighborhood rival Glen Burnie last night. However, there's a big difference between the teams. Old Mill has been winning despite its spotty play and Glen Burnie has not, and that trend continued as the Patriots rolled to a 70-41 victory. "Right now we're working on playing four-quarter basketball," said Old Mill senior point guard Andrew Engel, who had a stellar all-around game, as did 6-foot-6 senior forward Derek Harris.

Even in last week's steamy heat, I got the same chill I always get at Ground Zero. The immensity of the physical and emotional hole left by the 9/11 terrorist attack is hard to imagine from afar — you have to actually be there, looking down into the abyss. But the other thing that's hard to imagine from afar is how the sanctity of the site has nothing to do with anything around it. Even two blocks away. That is where the so-called Ground Zero mosque is supposed to be built. So-called because it can no more be considered the "Ground Zero mosque" than, say, the existing New York Dolls Gentlemen's Club one more block away could be considered the "Ground Zero Gentlemen's Club.
