    Preakness gettin’ hip and cool

    April 21, 2009

    Pimlico Race Course and the Preakness Stakes have finally joined the 21st Century.

    A new Web site has launched today, and gone are the cheesy, static designs, now replaced with– among other things — a count down clock, moving graphics and a ton more information.

    For example, did you know that during the Civil War the Woodlawn vase (presented to every Preakness winner) was buried at the Woodlawn Cemetery to be kept safe from being stolen and melted down for bullets?

    Oh, and there’s also relevant info about parking, dining, menus, etc.

    But on a sour note for those who are Infield regulars and still plan on going — despite the new alcohol policy — you’d better hurry up and get your tickets now if you want to lock in on last year’s ticket price...

    NFL broadcast schedule - back at M&T Bank Stadium

    April 16, 2009

    The NFL schedule is out and the Ravens finally get to host a national game after a year’s hiatus. We have to wait until week 12 for a Sunday Night Football face off between Baltimore and Pittsburgh — the first time the teams will have met since the AFC Championship game in January — and I’m sure NFL execs are hoping the drama and playoff runs will be sufficiently built up by then and Ravens starting QB Joe Flacco won’t be going through a sophomore slump.

    The Ravens will also make national appearances as the road team in Monday Night Football games against the Browns in week 10 and the Packers in week 13.

    Last year, the Ravens only had two nationally televised games — both away — against Pittsburgh on ESPN and Dallas on the NFL Network....

    Hold onto your hats - it’s PETA’s take on Pimlico

    April 14, 2009

    I suppose I should have been surprised that it had taken PETA this long to issue a statement about what’s going on with Pimlico Race Course here in Baltimore. Yet, I still had that gut, “Are you kidding me?!?” reaction when I saw the letter the group sent to Gov. Martin O’Malley this morning.

    If Baltimore ends up seizing Pimlico through eminent domain (as the state’s lawmakers have approved), People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is suggesting the state turn Pimlico into a “Horse Empathy Park.” (You know, because it’s not like the state approved that legislation to keep a certain horse race running there or anything...)

    From the letter signed by Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman:

    The Horse Empathy Park would feature educational displays highlighting interesting facts about horses...

    My First: At the mic and at law, experience breeds confidence

    If you’ve been to a University of Maryland football game in College Park, you’ve heard him. If you saw the school’s basketball team play Sunday at the BB&T Classic tournament in Washington, D.C., you know his voice.

    In fact, Philip R. Hochberg has been announcing area ballgames over public address systems longer than he’s been practicing law. To many, the sports attorney’s voice, which called Washington Redskins games and the Senators from their first game to their last in D.C.’s RFK Stadium, has been synonymous with major sporting events in the area for almost a half century.
