A state senator wants a new state bird; one man's technolgical fortress is his castle; and the Senate president feels snubbed by Obama.
It's not a statue in front of the office building that bares his name but Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller did receive a bust of himself this week courtesy of the Regional Manufacturing Institute. Sen. Kathy Klausmeier, a Perry Hall Democrat, gave a sneak preview of the small, light-weight bust of Miller moments before presenting it to the Senate's top dog. "You can't have too much Mike Miller," Klausmeier said. The technology is similar to what was used in a scene of Jurassic Park 3 where a copy of a velociraptor's larynx was recreated. The institute offered legislators in Annapolis the opportunity to have themselves scanned into a computer and get busts of themselves. Miller seemed impressed with the petite bust but joked that it …

Two Orioles season ticket holders tell the tale of a 15-year wait.
Debbie Dwyer and Rosie Cassidy have been patiently waiting. When the Rockville residents purchased an Orioles season-ticket plan 15 years ago, they were making an investment in the future. They knew someday it would pay off. Little did they know it would be 15 years. And little did they know in spring training that it would be this year. Patch caught up with Dwyer and Cassidy in their sweet seats before Game 2 of the American League Division Series. They normally sit on the first base side, so they were adjusting to their new digs, but you can see in the video how thrilled they were to be at Oriole Park at Camden Yards to experience the club's first playoff series since 1997. The Orioles and Yankees met in Game 3 Wednesday night. TELL US…
In honor of the baseball playoffs, we found a few homes located on streets that are reminiscent of our National Pastime.
We're all pumped up for the Orioles and Nationals playoff runs. Imagine living on Oriole Court these days! To help celebrate the playoffs, we decided to highlight these five homes for sale located on streets with baseball-related names. All are located in Severn or Odenton. We did not find a Yankee Drive (who'd want to live there anyway?). 1802 Oriole Ct., Severn. 1825 Oriole Ct. Severn 1836 Blue Jay Ct., Severn 1705 Angel Ct. Severn 2246 Indian Summer Dr., Odenton

Brandon Davis and his mom, Edye Stewart, were at Oriole Park at Camden Yards Monday.
Brandon Davis decided he could do without some of his musical equipment. What he couldn't do without: experiencing an Orioles playoff game. So the Anne Arundel County native—a 2002 South River High School grad—hocked some of his personal items from his Miami residence in order to catch a flight and land a ticket to see the Orioles play in Game 2 of the American League Division Series Monday in Baltimore. Davis, 29, and his mother, Edye Stewart, sat about 10 rows off the field along the right field line as the Orioles defeated the Yankees, 3-2. See the video for more from Stewart and Davis. Davis is retired from the military. Monday was his first game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards since the 1997 season. The Orioles carried a similar …

Fans braved the chill for the Orioles' return to the postseason after a 15-year hiatus. They walked away disappointed after the O's lost 7-2 to the New York Yankees.

The Orioles will host the Yankees Sunday and Monday at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
Nick Markakis stood perched, ready for takeoff atop the third base dugout railing Friday night in Texas . And when Nate McLouth made the game-ending catch in left field to clinch the American League Wildcard showdown for the Orioles, Markakis leapt with joy. Markakis was in a hoodie, sitting out with a broken thumb, watching from the top step of the dugout as the most visible cheerleader in the ballpark. Under his watch, the Orioles reached one goal Friday—earning a home postseason game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. That will happen on Sunday. But one goal remains, manager Buck Showalter said—staying active in the postseason long enough for Markakis, now a veteran leader in the clubhouse, to take part in the magical ride. Markakis' …
