In an emotional message, the wife of former Ravens running back Ray Rice broke her silence Tuesday morning, one day after Rice's contract was terminated and he was indefinitely suspended by the NFL. Those events followed a graphic video surfacing in which Rice punched his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, whom he later married and now has his last name. The couple has been in counseling since the incident in February, which occurred at Revel Casino, which has since closed, in Atlantic City, N.J. The Baltimore Sun has verified that the following unabridged message from her official Instagram account is from Janay Rice and was intended to be released publicly: "I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend," Janay Rice wrote.

On Monday September 8, two off-field events in the world of sports garnered more attention than any competition on the field: the Baltimore Ravens released Ray Rice, whom the NFL suspended indefinitely; and the NCAA lifted its postseason and scholarship ban on Penn State University's football team. These two events teach an important lesson about the fine line of acceptability in the very public world of professional and collegiate football. Looking first at the NFL, on Monday TMZ released a full video from inside the elevator of Mr. Rice punching his then-fiancée in the face.

Calling the Ray Rice video that broke Monday on TMZ "one of the biggest stories" it has ever done in terms of traffic, a website executive said today there are more revelations to come. "The stuff that's out there has kind of opened the door to a whole bunch of other story points such as what's going on with the NFL," Evan Rosenblum, executive producer for TMZ and TMZ Sports, said in a telephone interview. "Did the NFL really not see the video? What kind of effort did they make to see the video?

The Baltimore Ravens said Tuesday that the team gave up its investigation into the Ray Rice assault incident after just a few weeks, while the National Football League explained its own fruitless efforts to obtain the surveillance video of the player punching his then-fiancee. Both organizations faced mounting criticism after release of the video by celebrity news website TMZ prompted both to impose stiffer penalties against Rice on Monday. The 27-year-old running back was set to rejoin the team following a two-game suspension, but was instead cut from the roster and suspended indefinitely from the league.

Before the Orioles' comeback 4-2 rubber match win over the Detroit Tigers at Camden Yards Sunday, a third-inning foul ball became a focus of struggle. In a video caught by MLB.com , a young Orioles fan is shown vainly reaching down from the stands for the ball only to have his reach come up short. As an usher motions for the fan to step back, a man emerges from further down the aisle with an umbrella, which he uses to successfully scoop the ball up. He goes on to raise the ball triumphant in his resourcefulness.

When I saw on SI's Hot Clicks this afternoon that there was a new trick shot video floating out in the blogosphere, I rolled my eyes. Then I squinted to read the summary and saw that the video came from a long snapper, so I had to click the link. It was worth it. Kudos to Washington State long snapper Zach Enyeart for having a sense of humor about his oft-overlooked role and putting together a pretty entertaining trick shot video. It also helps that the soundtrack is "Electric Avenue" by Eddy Grant and that Enyeart seems legitimately stoked after every successful snap.

One of the things we have been going back and forth about for our wedding is whether or not to have a videographer. Some people say it is necessary and definitely worth the money, where others admit that they have only watched their wedding video a couple times and that the pictures are enough.  This is a tough decision because I don't think it is something we will watch all the time but it may be nice to watch on anniversaries and to show our...

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake criticized the Police Department's handling of a high-profile police brutality investigation on Wednesday, and said she had directed the police commissioner to develop a "comprehensive" plan to address brutality in the agency. Speaking to reporters at City Hall, the mayor said top commanders should have quickly seen a video of an officer repeatedly punching a man, and should have moved immediately to take the officer off the street. "It is outrageous," Rawlings-Blake said of the conduct of the officer shown in the video, whom authorities have identified as Officer Vincent E. Cosom.

A South Baltimore man filed a lawsuit Monday against a city police officer, accusing the officer of punching him repeatedly during a June arrest — an incident that was captured on video. Kollin Truss and Officer Vincent E. Cosom argued a few moments before the arrest, but a woman with Truss had separated the pair, and Truss was apparently walking away from police when they decided to make an arrest. "This attack was completely unprovoked and served no legitimate law enforcement purpose," Truss' attorneys, Ivan J. Bates and Tony N. Garcia, wrote in a complaint filed in Baltimore Circuit Court.

I joined Christine Brennan, of "USA Today," and Howard Kurtz on "Media Buzz" today to talk about TMZ and the performance of mainstream media in covering -- or not covering -- the Ray Rice story. I was at first surpised to hear Brennan, who knows this turf as well as anyone, say an argument could be made that it is "the biggest controversy to ever hit a U.S. sports league. " But having thought about it since, I think she could be right. #sigshell { float: left; width: 320px; height: 52px; margin: 20px 0px; display: block; }

In the matter of Ray Rice, it seems like every spokesperson for the Ravens organization has lost their ability to think logically and analytically about what just happened. Let's look at a few simple facts: First, the release of the elevator video did not make things worse than they were. Second, the judicial system in New Jersey took carefully considered measures against Mr. Rice long ago and, third, the punishment then meted out by the NFL and the Ravens far exceeds the NFL's own standard for a first offense.

If your grades and SAT scores are less than stellar, you still have a shot at getting into Goucher College with a two-minute video. Starting with applicants for next year's class, Goucher announced Thursday that it will give students the option of submitting a video they record in lieu of transcripts or college admission exams. Officials say the move is designed to help those who might have difficulty navigating the complexity of the college application process. Though colleges across the country have allowed students to submit videos as a supplement to their application, Goucher officials believe the college will be the first to judge applicants primarily on the video.

In this video, Bryan Voltaggio makes a muffaletta at his Lunchbox restaurant. The video was produced, I think, by a Georgetown men's boutique named Lost Boys. When you click on a Lost Boys link, at least on Friday, scary things start popping up on your computer. The sandwich looks good, anyway, and so does Voltaggio. Not sure about that jacket.

On what planet do Roger Goodell and Steve Bisciotti live ( "Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti writes in letter, 'we let you down' in handling Rice incident," Sept. 9)? The first video showed Mr. Rice dragging his fiancée out of the elevator unconscious. She was on the floor. If he wasn't responsible for her being in that condition, don't you think he would have been carrying her in his arms? Obviously, she had been beaten. That seemed to be the given at the time. If they didn't think he had beaten her, why did they punish him in the first place?
