TORREY SMITH is staying in Maryland! Torrey Smith’s road to Raven-hood has been storybook for the franchise as well as the speedster from the University of Maryland.  It’s completely common for Ravens fans to dawn Terps gear on Saturdays during football season and cheering for Smith is something many fans have already made a habit.

Jimmy Smith. I’ll be honest.  I don’t like it. I’d much rather the team have went with a pass rusher to sure up the pass d than go with a guy with such a sketchy past.  Remember Chris McAlister? Super talented CB, but a head case who was frustrating his entire time here?  I hope [...]

LUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUKE took Josh Beckett 424 feet deep last night (see it here), becoming the first batter to reach Eutaw Street since…well, since the last time he did it, back in 2009. The last person to do it before that? That’s right, Mr. Gun-totin’ Ricky Redneck himself, Luke Scott. Scott has hit the last three Eutaw [...]

With indications that football may be happening in the not-too-distant future, it’s a bit easier to get excited for tonight’s first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. “The NFL has filed for an emergency stay with the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, while the Eighth Circuit considers the NFL’s stay request.  Unless and until such [...]

With just one week remaining until the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, it’s time to take one final peek at who all the “experts” have the Ravens picking (see our previous round ups here and here). Todd MacShay (subscription required): Cameron Hayward, DE, Ohio State Scenario 1: Heyward would have an immediate impact [...]

Honestly, I haven’t been as excitedly awaiting the release of the NFL schedule as I usually do at this time of year.  I was fully ready to go all-out orange and black for the next several months, and was eagerly anticipating having something to root for throughout the summer aside from the start of Ravens’ [...]

A buddy of mine posted this screencap  from last night’s Yanks-O’s debacle on Facebook.  It’s glorious.

I’ve been waiting for this. Ever since Wiz Khlafafizaia or whatever the hell his name is made that grating “Black and Yellow” song that became the Pittsburgh Steelers’ anthem, the copycats have been out in full force. We’ve seen “white and purple” (by no less than the immortal Chet Haze AKA Tom Hanks’ other son [...]
