    Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo was released by Baltimore this offseason, and on the heels of comments earlier this week where he suggested that he was cut in part because of his outspoken stance on gay rights and equality issues, Ayanbadejo clarified himself to the Baltimore Sun on Friday. During an hour-long interview he made it clear that he harbors no resentment for the Ravens, and respects them for the support they offered him throughout his career both on and off the field. But that's not all. ...Ayanbadejo had this to say: "I think it will happen sooner than you think,"...

    Just doing my part as an avowed Yankee-hater to spread fear and loathing of the pinstripes among AGW skeptics who might otherwise root for them. He’s in Davos this week, by the way. Really.

Considering his infamous perfectionism, it was a given, too, that the sound and musicianship would be top-notch, especially since half of the set would be devoted to the 1973 audiophile masterpiece, "The Dark Side of the Moon." What came as a surprise was that Waters' three-hour performance in Tinley Park packed such an emotional wallop in the...
