Sunday's 'Open Thread'

These daily 'Open Threads' seem to be gaining steam and are obviously getting some traffic on a variety of topics, so there is no reason not to continue them. Thus, here we are today, and let's keep it going with more interesting commentary, including both the Baltimore Ravens as well as other totally unrelated topics.

Yesterday it ranged from the NBA Draft to the sad case of mistaken identity between Baltimore sportscaster, Gerry Sandusky, and the Penn State Jerry Sandusky, who is of no relation to the other one.

Perhaps today, someone will mention the continuing success of the Baltimore Orioles and what their chances are to at the very least play meaningful games deep into the season as opposed to being out of the race by the All-Star break for the 15th straight season or so. Go for it!
