For nine years, Bobby Nyk didn't miss a single Ravens game, home or away. That home streak is impressive enough, but it was all those away games that earned him the nickname "The Ravens Road Warrior. " It's a moniker worn proudly by the 62-year-old Baltimore native, who spent most of those nine years working for the team as a DJ outside the stadium on game days. "I don't think anyone's been to more away games than me, except for maybe Nestor Aparicio," the retired Howard County teacher says, referring to the Baltimore radio sports personality and rabid Ravens fan.

Anyone can understand that sharing experiences helps people bond, especially when it involves an outdoors activity. But doing so by teaching wounded veterans to kill innocent whitetail deer with bows and arrows is inhumane and should stop ("Helping veterans to recover with hunting," Aug. 11).

Other trainers and owners, Bill Beatson said, took a look at the Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap, saw the name "Shackleford" and passed. Even Beatson, and his partners at Dark Hollow Farms, David and JoAnn Hayden, knew that a win against the 2011 Preakness winner would be unlikely. They decided to enter the horse, Poseidon's Warrior, anyway, and so on Sunday the Maryland-bred horse was at the gate of an off track at the grade I race at Saratoga. His odds were 36-1, the second longest shot in the field.

The bus carrying Cody Stanton and other wounded soldiers breezed up Interstate 95 on Tuesday to the site of the former World Trade Center in New York, with an escort arranged by Baltimore's police commissioner.
