Packed at Owings Mills; Probably not at OPACY

January 14, 2009 | Drew Forrester

It’s AFC Championship Week in Baltimore and the Baltimore, Pittsburgh and national media have descended on Owings Mills.

You’ll be able to hear all of the coverage in a little while once Casey gets all the sound on to our web-site…plus, Casey will be doing the 2-6 pm show with Ray later on today at WNST.

John Harbaugh, Ray Lewis, Derrick Mason, Todd Heap, Joe Flacco…they all spoke with the media today at the facility and the place was jam-packed with members of the press corps.

For reasons known ONLY to the Orioles, they decided today at noon was the perfect time to have Koji Uehara appear before the Baltimore media at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Other than the beat writer from The Sun and a few stragglers from MASN, I assume the room at OPACY is filled to the brim with Japanese media members who are there for Uehara.

But, 95% of the Baltimore sports media is out here at Owings Mills covering the Ravens-Steelers showdown on Sunday.

It is, after all, a fairly big game.

Speaking of the game, I’ll be doing an “AFC Championship Preview Show” this Saturday from 1-4 pm at WNST, following Ray and Casey (11-1) with their regular Saturday Ravens show.

We probably won’t be discussing Koji Uehara.

Then again, neither will anyone else…today or Saturday.
