Jason Kidd apologizes for recent DUI

From Comcast SportsNet
NEW YORK (AP) -- Jason Kidd has apologized on Twitter for his arrest on a drunken-driving charge after an accident last week. Days after signing with the Knicks, Kidd crashed his SUV into a telephone pole in the Hamptons on Sunday, Southampton Town police said. He was treated at a hospital for minor injuries after the 2010 Cadillac Escalade he was driving hit a pole and veered into the woods around 2 a.m. Kidd writes Friday that he regrets "any disruption my accident last weekend may have caused members of the community and want to thank the local authorities." In another posting, Kidd also thanks his family and friends for their support.

Former Terp Shaun Hill could be in line to start after Teddy Bridgewater injury

Former Terp Shaun Hill could be in line to start after Teddy Bridgewater injury

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater suffered a dislocated knee along with a completely torn ACL and "other structural damage," the team announced on Tuesday evening. 

With the injury almost undoubtedly ending Bridgewater's season, the football question begins to arise. Who will play quarterback in Minnesota? The answer could be former Maryland Terrapin.

Shaun Hill, a veteran journeyman, could be the next in line, barring a move by Minnesota to acquire another quarterback.

As currently constituted, Hill is on the roster along with former Wisconsin QB Joel Stave and former Old Dominion QB Taylor Heinicke.

Hill, 36, came in for the injured Bridgewater last season against St. Louis after the quarterback left the game with a concussion. Minnesota would win, 21-18, in overtime.

Hill has played for four teams during his NFL career -- the Vikings, 49ers, Rams, and Lions. He has thrown for more than 8,000 total yards and has a career passer rating of 85.2.

Before turning pro, he helped Maryland to the 2001 ACC title as a senior. The Terrapins would reach the 2002 Orange Bowl and end the season ranked No. 10 overall.

Anderson named to Maryland State Athletic Hall of Fame

Anderson named to Maryland State Athletic Hall of Fame

BALTIMORE—Brady Anderson was born in Maryland, and though he only lived here for a year, he’s spent so much of his adult life creating happy memories for Orioles fans that he was a natural to be added to the Maryland State Athletic Hall of Fame. 

This year’s class was announced Tuesday, and Anderson joins famed sailor Gary Jobson, University of Maryland football and NFL player Louis Carter, Wheeler Baker (powerboating), Laurie Schowoy (soccer) and Jack Thomas (lacrosse). 

Jim Henneman, the longtime sportswriter for the Baltimore News American, Baltimore Evening Sun and Sun, was named the John F. Steadman Lifetime Achievement Award winner.

Anderson, who was born in Silver Spring, moved to California as an infant, and played for the Orioles from 1988-2001, hit a then franchise record 50 home runs in 1996. 

“It’s become my second home, there’s no doubt,” Anderson said. “The only team I really care about. The only team I want to work for.” 

Anderson is currently the Orioles Vice President of Baseball Operations. 

“I think of myself as an Oriole more than as a Marylander, although I spend half my time here, more than half my time,” Anderson said. 

“A few times it came close where I could have been playing for someone else, I couldn’t picture myself going into any other stadium as a home player, except for Camden Yards.” 

Henneman, who often serves as official scorer for Orioles games, has witnessed more of the team’s games than anyone. 

The induction is on Nov. 3 at Michael’s Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie. Tickets are $75 and can be purchased at www.mdsahof.com
