Congratulations to the winner of our Facebook Photo Caption Contest, Charlene Woods. Did you watch the Super Bowl?

This photo (provided by US Presswire) is of NY Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw running for a touchdown with :57 left on the clock.

The theory is that the New England Patriot allowed the Giants to score the touchdown, so they could get the ball back with one timeout and enough time to make a final drive. The Giants ended up winning Super Bowl XLVI 21-17.

The following information was sent to us by the Maryland Stadium Authority's, Jan Hardesty:

 

In preparation for the Ravens playoff game on Sunday, M&T Bank Stadium is flying for the first time the commemorative 15-star, 15-stripe American flag – a replica of the Star-Spangled Banner that inspired Francis Scott Key to write the National Anthem following the all-night British bombardment of Fort McHenry in 1814.

 

Athlete Spotlight: Local Figure Skater and Olympian Kimmie Meissner

Athlete Spotlight: Local Figure Skater and Olympian Kimmie Meissner

Born in Towson, Maryland, Kimmie Meissner is a figure skater that became a World Champion in 2006 and a National Champion in 2007. She also competed in the U.S. Olympic games in 2006 where she finished 6th place.

We caught up with Meissner at an outdoor ice skating event in Rockville where she performed and signed autographs for hundreds of fans.

 

How was it to compete in the U.S. Olympics at such a young age?

To get to the Olympics in 2006 was difficult. You had to place in the top two at nationals because there were only two spots and the talent was pretty tough. I competed against people that I looked up to as a child such as Sasha Cohen, Michelle Kwan, and Emily Hughes. It was the best thing that has happened to me.
