A state senator wants a new state bird; one man's technolgical fortress is his castle; and the Senate president feels snubbed by Obama.
It's not a statue in front of the office building that bares his name but Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller did receive a bust of himself this week courtesy of the Regional Manufacturing Institute. Sen. Kathy Klausmeier, a Perry Hall Democrat, gave a sneak preview of the small, light-weight bust of Miller moments before presenting it to the Senate's top dog. "You can't have too much Mike Miller," Klausmeier said. The technology is similar to what was used in a scene of Jurassic Park 3 where a copy of a velociraptor's larynx was recreated. The institute offered legislators in Annapolis the opportunity to have themselves scanned into a computer and get busts of themselves. Miller seemed impressed with the petite bust but joked that it …

The gentlemen of Robbie's First Base in Timonium share their thoughts on the Super Bowl.
The Davis men seldom agree when it comes to sports. And that's the way we like it. This week, however, they are united in their belief that the Ravens will bring back a Super Bowl trophy to Baltimore. For the uninitiated, Robbie Davis, Sr. and Robbie Davis, Jr. are the stars of Ball Boys, an ABC pawn-style reality show filmed at their memorabilia shop Robbie's First Base in Timonium. Looking around the shop on West Ridgely Road, one could make the argument that the Davis boys could retire on their signed helmets, balls and posters should the Ravens beat San Francisco Sunday. Patch dropped by the stop Friday to chat with Senior and Junior about the game itself, Randy Moss's controversial comments and who they think will be the Super Bowl …

The Baltimore Ravens quarterback-tight end duo will be at McFaul's Iron Horse Tavern tonight for the WNST Thursday Night Live radio show.
If you've ever wanted to meet Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, tonight will present you with an awesome opportunity. Flacco will be the special guest on WNST.net's Thursday Night Live radio show, hosted by Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta and WNST's "Nasty" Nestor Aparicio, broadcasting live from McFaul's Iron Horse Tavern at Sanders' Corner at 2260 Cromwell Bridge Road. The show starts at 7 p.m., but owner Kristen McFaul said that a shuttle will start running from the Cromwell Bridge Park & Ride, just off the Beltway, to the restaurant at 5:30 p.m. Between segments of the show, both Flacco and Pitta will sign autographs and pose for photographs. Pitta, McFaul said, will be available for free (although there will be a line) but Flacco…

Many Ravens fans believe quarterback Joe Flacco can help lead his team past the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game and into the Super Bowl.
Gina Stratakes said it is easy to underappreciate what quarterback Joe Flacco has meant to the Ravens over the last four years. Flacco has started every game for the Ravens since being selected with the 18th overall pick in 2008 NFL Draft. During that time, the Ravens have made the postseason each year and advanced to the AFC Championship Game twice. This includes Sunday’s 3 p.m. kickoff against the New England Patriots. Prior to Flacco’s arrival, the Ravens had 15 starting quarterbacks in 12 seasons. Those signal-callers ranged from Vinny Testaverde in 1996 to less-than-memorable names like Stony Case, Anthony Wright and Scott Mitchell, the latter of whom then-coach Brian Billick asked fans to "take a leap of faith" with him in 1999. …

Coach John Harbaugh, along with key players, address several topics heading into Sunday's playoff game against the Houston Texans.
The Ravens are gearing up for their first home playoff game in five years on Sunday when they host the Houston Texans in Sunday's AFC Divisional playoff game at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. On Wednesday, Ravens players and coaches addressed the media and delved into several topics, ranging from the growth of QB Joe Flacco to the play of the Texans to whether it is Super Bowl or bust this season. There were also some light-hearted moments discussing the Fu Manchu craze started by Flacco. Among some of the highlights of the press conference were: Ravens coach John Harbaugh on QB Joe Flacco: "Joe Flacco, as we've said, is our quarterback. He's the Ravens' quarterback. We think he's a great player, he's a great person and the best is yet to …

Honored at Franklin Square fundraiser, Ravens safety continues to make a difference on and off the field as team prepares for postseason game at the K.C. Chiefs.
Ravens safety Ed Reed appears as dominant as ever. This season, he earned his seventh Pro Bowl selection, led the NFL with eight interceptions and helped anchor a defense that allowed just 16.9 points per game - third fewest in the NFL - in 2010. Not bad for someone who recently contemplated retirement due to injuries. Reed has battled a nerve impingement in his neck the past three seasons and missed the first six games of this year following offseason hip surgery. He also is battling a rib injury he suffered following the second of his two interceptions in the Ravens 20-10 win last Sunday over the Cleveland Browns. The 32-year-old Reed is in constant pain and is often unable to even practice during the week. Still, Reed appears ready to …
