Guilford resident Cullen Little, 12, is not afraid to say what he thinks when he appears on the Booker Corrigan Show.
Cullen Little is unrepentant. What he says on air as part of the "Booker Coorigan Show" on 1300 AM is what he believes. Even if his opinion is not popular, or may appear incorrect in hindsight, Cullen is standing by his view. "If I had any regrets I couldn’t keep doing [the radio show]," he said. Cullen doesn’t pull his punches either. Earlier in the year, he said on air the Ravens would be best served by letting quarterback Joe Flacco sign somewhere else next year. Despite Flacco leading his team to the Super Bowl, Cullen isn’t walking back his comments. "In my opinion he’s so inconsistent he could never be back [to the Super Bowl]," Cullen said. This stance is pretty brave for any broadcaster, especially one working in a tough sports …

Tom Kelly's 1967 Volkswagen bus was parked outside his shop Tuesday morning.
Tom Kelly only goes to Ravens games occasionally. But when he does, the Long Green resident and Cockeysville business owner likes to make a statement. It's hard to miss his 1967 Volkswagen bus, decked in purple paint and covered in Baltimore football memorabilia. Tuesday, a day after the Ravens officially began their 2012 campaign, the bus was parked outside Kelly's Body Shop on York Road. "The first time I took this to the stadium [in 1998], I couldn't believe it. I thought It'd be no big deal with everybody else riding in. I pull this into the stadium and everybody who saw it just went crazy," Kelly said. The van's beginnings are simple enough—he picked it up in 1996 as a $600 fixer-upper and got to work replacing the seats, replacing …

Plan your Super Bowl grub or read up on football history.
While passing through the Towson Library today, I saw this display of Super Bowl-related book picks. They include cookbooks for gameday appetizers, a book on the Colts' 1958 championship and an NFL rulebook, so you can criticize the ref with flair.

Havre de Grace Patch Editor Sean Welsh, a former Baltimore sportswriter, offers his take on Wild Card Weekend as it pertains to the Ravens.
The Ravens might be unstoppable in the AFC Playoffs. They just need some help. Finding a way to host the AFC title game? Make your plans for Indy. They're Super Bowl-bound. Playing at New England for the conference championship? Gulp. I'm a big believer in the Ravens this season—provided they're playing before 70,000-some screamin' Ball So Hard University students. On the road, forget it. Don't ask why. Even heading into the season finale at Cincinatti, I had little faith. Looking at this weekend's playoff crop, I'm analyzing things from this angle: Who has the best shot of going into New England and picking off the Brady Bunch? After all, not only do the Ravens win at home, but so, too, do we—the residents of the Baltimore area. There's a…
