"Thursday, Nov. 24, paper, someone from Hagerstown said about how it's unsafe for the Greyhound to be there on the Dual Highway. ... They are on the Dual Highway, but it's way out by Foxshire ... where Dunkin' Donuts is. It's in the lower level. " - Smithsburg "Just want to say this: There's some great people in the world.

Former NFL kicker Matt Stover will retire after a stellar career in which he scored more than 2,000 points. The Ravens say Stover will make the announcement this afternoon at Baltimore’s training complex. Stover, 43, ranks fourth in NFL history with 2,004 points. He made 471 field goals, connecting on 83.7 percent of his attempts — the seventh-best success rate in league history.

Even though he works in football, Baltimore Ravens coach Ted Monachino now knows how a relief pitcher feels. On Saturday, he got the call to take over for linebacker Terrell Suggs. He was on hand to accept the player of the year honors during the Ravens Roost No. 7 Double EE banquet at the Hagerstown Elks Lodge. It’s just the way things go these days for the Ravens and the rest of the National Football League. The league is in lockout status after the collective bargaining agreement expired last month, so there aren’t any players working out, let alone accepting awards.

Ray Lewis knows a championship defense when he sees one. Now the Kansas City Chiefs do, too. Lewis and Baltimore’s tough and savvy defense overwhelmed the young Chiefs on Sunday, sacking Matt Cassel three times and forcing five turnovers in a 30-7 victory in the opening round of the playoffs. The Chiefs (10-7), who won the AFC West with a six-game improvement and took pride in not beating themselves, managed just 25 yards in the second half. “To set records is one thing,” said Lewis, who forced a fumble and had a sack in the second-half dismantling of the Chiefs.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- Quarterback Joe Flacco is a big reason why the Baltimore Ravens are struggling to score points. Coach John Harbaugh Monday guaranteed that his third-year signal-caller will play better. He needs him to turn around quickly. The third-year quarterback threw a career-high four interceptions in Sunday's 15-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. In Baltimore's opener, a 10-9 win over the New York Jets, Flacco lost a fumble and threw an interception. Because of their offensive struggles the Ravens trail unbeaten Pittsburgh in the AFC North despite not having given up a touchdown.

CINCINNATI -- Instead of watching a game, Mike Nugent got a chance to win one. The kicker who spent most of last season watching from home had the best day of his career on Sunday. He made all five of his field goal tries, sending the Cincinnati Bengals to a 15-10 victory over the Baltimore Ravens that extended their domination of the AFC North. Instead of Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco, the star of this one was the kicker. "Hey Hollywood!" holder Kevin Huber called out to him in the locker room.
