Luke's favorite sports memories include being one of the thousands of kids who waited to get Cal Ripken's autograph after Orioles games in the summer of 1995, attending the Super Bowl XXXV victory parade with his father in the pouring rain, and watching the Terps advance to the Final Four at the Carrier Dome in 2002.

  1. Can’t agree more guys. Just when you think the O’s are about to take a swan dive in the standings, they go and shut down tha Rays for 20+ innings. The hitting is still asleep, but, like they say, ‘good pitching beats bad hitting’ every time … 9^)
