Short-term memory loss can be a blessed thing. Like, if you live or work in Maryland and you leave the state for a while, you are liable to start to forget that things around here can get a bit - what's the word? - unconventional. But then, upon return, you get a quick reminder. This is the place I was in Thursday when I arrived home from a week in the mountains to learn that all of Baltimore had been terrorized by a bat. Or at least the thousands of people in attendance at a Baltimore Ravens game, where a bat touched down in the 500 section.

Bobby Rainey scored his first two touchdowns of the preseason, leading a cluster of backups fighting for jobs on both sides in the St. Louis Rams' 24-21 victory to close the preseason on Thursday night. Baltimore Ravens star running back Ray Rice watched from home, as did Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco. The Rams (1-3) avoided their first winless preseason since 2002 on an 8-yard touchdown pass from Austin Davis to Chase Reynolds with 2:40 to go. They clinched it when Drew Thomas intercepted third-stringer Caleb Hanie at the 4 in the final minute.

There's no way to know whether special articles of clothing, facial hair or a particular snack had anything to do with the Baltimore Ravens' victory over San Francisco in Sunday's Super Bowl. But those who practiced such quirky superstitions on behalf of the Ravens can take pleasure in the idea they might have played a role in the win. Following is a sampling of what some area residents did to try to give Baltimore an edge: Mismatched socks and more Justin Anthony of Williamsport wears mismatched socks and the same boxer shorts and black University of Maryland basketball shorts for every Baltimore Ravens game.

There's an old baseball legend about a hitter who takes a called third strike. He's so upset with the umpire that he takes his bat and gives it a mighty heave into the stratosphere. The ump gazes up at the soaring object and says, “Son, if that bat ever comes down you're out of the game.” That was probably the way most people felt Saturday as they watched Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco's last-gasp pass arch high and deep into the Denver Broncos' secondary. You had a sense it would come down sooner or later, but there was no guarantee.

Rocky Rutherford of Keedysville watched the NFL Draft throughout the weekend and criticized the fact that so many teams drafted offensive linemen in the first round. “I don't think o-linemen are a big deal because you can get good o-linemen late in the draft,” said Rutherford, 19. “The first round should be about skill players.” The 2013 draft featured 10 offensive linemen drafted in the first round, including the top two picks and three of the top five picks. The draft began Thursday with the first round and lasted through Saturday.

Winning isn't all that it's cracked up to be. It carries too many consequences. There was a time when it felt pretty good, though. Winning was the best of all worlds. Victory was the badge of honor that rewarded one for mastering the work, struggle and an opponent to come out on top. It was a chance to bask in the topical sun. But like most things in our culture, once is no longer enough. Winning isn't a benefit anymore … it's an obsession. It's a philosophy that benches Aristotle, Plato and Socrates.
