Smoking Ban at Orioles and Ravens Game Will Be Tough for Those Addicted

“I can’t go all that time without a smoke,” he said almost-desperately as I relayed to him the information. Starting in March at all events held in Oriole Park at Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium, smoking is prohibited. No more designated smoking areas, banned completely inside the stadiums as well as 25 feet from the entrances outside the stadium. He is my uncle, in his mid-fifties, an Oriole fan for decades, a smoker for probably longer, and a common visitor to both Memorial Stadium and Camden Yards. “I won’t go,” he added.

“Earl Weaver smoked in the dugout!” he pleaded.

Joe Flacco said He Would Tackle Ted Ginn if He Broke That Final Punt for a Touchdown

After Sam Koch effectively wasted eight seconds of play by scurrying around in the end zone, taking a safety, Joe Flacco and the Ravens anxiously awaited the ensuing punt as well as the remaining four ticks of the clock. It’s no secret that Flacco wanted 49ers returner Ted Ginn to be stopped short of the goal line and to win the game, but he was willing to go to extremes to make that happen.

Firing Cam Cameron: a Knee-Jerk, Face-Saving Reaction from Baltimore

In Baltimore, when it comes to football, losing two games in a row is both uncommon and inexcusable. Cleveland is envious. Baltimore’s two consecutive losses to the divisional rival Pittsburgh Steelers and regional foe Washington Redskins — the first consecutive losing games since October of 2009 — prompted a coaching change immediately on Monday morning. San Diego is now envious ones.

Cam CameronIt is tough to call it imminent. Baltimore’s strong stance in retaining Cam Cameron in the face of consistent criticism from fans for year further strengthened his job security.

But, now after two consecutive losses, Cameron finds himself without a job.

While most of Baltimore’s faithful are saying “about time” and asking what took so long?,” others are asking “why now?”

Top Ravens Hits on Hines Ward

The news finally came for that damned Hines Ward. After 14 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Ward will be released by the team.

In honor of that bastard not having a job, here are the top hits by Ravens on Hines Ward:

Instead of going for the sack on Big Ben, Jarret Johnson decides to embed Hines Ward into the turf. The play results in an Ed Reed interception, making the hit that much better.
