3:00-Sorry for the delay since my last update-I’ve been scrambling to recover since the UNTHINKABLE news that Roberto Alomar fell short in Hall of Fame voting. Quick note: Vikings WR/KR Percy Harvin was voted AP Offensive Rookie of the Year, Michael Oher finished 2nd in voting.

1:46-RB/KR Jalen Parmele is scheduled to join Drew Forrester at 7:30 tomorrow morning on The Comcast Morning Show.

1:41-Governor O’Malley is here at 1 Winning Drive, and met very briefly with the media before going to watch practice. I asked him about the court’s decision to postpone Friday’s auction of Pimlico and Laurel. He responded…..

“We’re glad that the court is protecting and understanding of the importance of keeping Preakness in Maryland.”

You can hear the roughly 2 minutes with the Governor in the Audio Vault at Warning: there’s political talk (including Sheila Dixon) involved-but I was also able to get in a question about whether or not he’ll be making a bet with anyone in Massachusetts before Sunday’s game.

1:15-Some quick odds and ends from out here today:

-Willis McGahee was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in Sunday’s win over the Oakland Raiders.
-John Harbaugh was mistakenly listed as “Jim Harbaugh” on the front page of the Patriots media guide. His response: “I’m honored.”
-Governor Martin O’Malley will attend practice this afternoon
-When asked if the Ravens would play with less aggression due to the way the first NE game was officiated, Trevor Pryce said “If we change the way we play the game, who are we? We’re the Lions.”
-Mark Clayton was asked if he viewed Sunday’s game as a chance at redemption following his crucial drop at the end of the first game. His response was “It’s just a game.” When asked if he still thinks about that drop, he responded “not at all.”

1:11-Hear from the following NOW in the Audio Vault at

Coach John Harbaugh
C Matt Birk
OT Michael Oher
QB Joe Flacco
RB Ray Rice
WR Derrick Mason
DE Trevor Pryce

11:17-Greetings from 1 Winning Drive, where the Baltimore Ravens return to work today after two days off in preparation for Sunday’s AFC Wild Card showdown with the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough. We are scheduled to hear from John Harbaugh, Ray Rice, Ray Lewis, Joe Flacco, Derrick Mason and other Ravens today; as well as Bill Belichick and Tom Brady via conference call from the Pats.

Back shortly with more. Make sure to follow us on Twitter (@WNST) for the quickest updates.
