Orb, the Kentucky Derby winner, finished fourth.
Oxbow, a 15-1 longshot, went nearly wire-to-wire to win the 138th Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course on Saturday giving trainer D. Wayne Lukas the all-time lead in Triple Crown race victories with 14. The bay colt, ridden by 50-year old Gary Stevens and owned by Calumet Farm, took the lead early from Goldencents and won the $1 million Middle Jewel of the Triple Crown by 1 ¾ lengths holding off Itsmyluckyday and Mylute in 1:57.54. Oxbow also ended hopes for a Triple Crown winner for another year. Orb, the winner of the Kentucky Derby, never got started from his No. 1 post position and finished a disappointing fourth. "I get paid to spoil dreams," Lukas said after the race. "You can’t mail it in, it’s a different surface, a different …

Eric Woodson is coaching the Glen Burnie High School football team, after turning Northwestern into a winning program.
Eric Woodson was named the new football coach for Glen Burnie High School last month, and he will be working to turn around his second football program, reports The Capital-Gazette. Woodson spent the past eight years transforming the program at Northwest High School in Baltimore City from a 2-7 record in 2004 to a playoff team by his fourth year, according to the report. It has been more than a decade since Glen Burnie has earned a winning record, and Woodson is taking over a team that managed three wins last year.

Mike Gimbel, a local runner who has run the marathon eight times, said today's explosions hit the most crowded portion of the course. Click here for video of the explosions.
An explosion Monday at the Boston Marathon came at the worst place at the worst time, according to a Maryland runner who has participated in the prestigious race numerous times. Mike Gimbel, who has run the Boston Marathon eight of the last 10 years, said the area of the explosion near Boylston Street is one of the most populated areas. "The majority of the fans and police are located in that area," said Gimbel. "There's 23,000 runners and everyone is there, some times 100 deep, trying to see their loved ones finishing the race. It's the place to be; it's the highlight of the race." Gimbel was scheduled to run the race again this year but withdrew after a leg injury. "I've run it so much, the last time I was there I knew where the potholes…

One of the newest additions to the Baltimore Ravens was spotted in Glen Burnie within a day of joining the team.
When linebacker Elvis Dumervil walked off the field in Denver after losing to the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, he probably didn't expect to be sharing a table of seafood with Ravens star Haloti Ngata any time soon. But as it so happens, a fax machine fluke helped Dumervil realize this dinner destiny. Dumervil's agent reportedly failed to fax a signed and restructured contract with the Broncos by the deadline for free agency, so the team cut him. Baltimore took advantage of the bungle by jumping at the pass rusher. This photo was posted online overnight, showing Dumervil and Ngata with several other people around a table of crabs at Seaside Restaurant & Crab House in Glen Burnie. Within a day of Dumervil …
