    The Sun Remembers
    May 30, 1982: In an inauspicious start to a historic streak, 21-year-old Cal Ripken Jr. bats eighth and goes hitless in the Orioles' 6-0 loss to the last-place Toronto Blue Jays. An announced Memorial Stadium crowd of 21,632 sees the start of Ripken's...

    Hyde5: Ranking Dolphins top 20 players (No. 1 - Wake)

    TBS Ripken gaffe casts pall over otherwise strong telecast of Orioles victory
    This is the kind of thing they used to teach in journalism school and I wish they still did: The way one careless mistake can diminish an otherwise strong performance and bring embarrassment instead of praise. That's the story of TBS's coverage of the...

    Hitting the street with the Baltimore Running Festival
    The best moment of the annual Baltimore Running Festival comes not when the marathon starts on the street outside Oriole Park at Camden Yards, or when the champion crosses the finish line. For festival founder Lee Corrigan, the high point of Baltimore'...

    Alex Karras, an All-Pro defensive tackle for the Detroit Lions who later worked as a "Monday Night Football" co-host and parlayed his hulking strength into a Hollywood acting career, died Wednesday. He was 77. Karras died at his Los Angeles home, his...
