What: National Aquarium
Where: 501 E Pratt St, Baltimore, MD 21202
When: Open Dailey (Hours Vary)
If you’re here in Baltimore, you can’t miss out on the National Aquarium, where the mystery of beautiful underwater life is revealed. While some people may say, “Once you’ve seen one aquarium, you’ve seen them all”, the Baltimore National Museum is especially worth seeing. Its exhibits include sea creatures from all over the world, and the museum works hard to help preserve our oceans and the species that inhabit them, which are increasingly disappearing as our environment changes. Located in the heart of Baltimore’s inner harbor, you can make a day, or even two, out of a day at the aquarium and all the fun things the harbor has to offer! Find out more here!

New England has been surging after a rough start to the season, but until yesterday, they were still number two in the AFC to the Broncos, and just above the Colts for number three.
However, with the impressive display the Patriots put on against the Colts in their own house last night, and the Broncos upset loss with some injuries thrown in to the Rams, it’s hard to argue against the Patriots as the top team in the AFC.

What: Gone Girl at Senator Theatre
Where: Senator Theatre
When: Various Show times
Unless you’re one of those people who refuses to watch a film after you’ve already read it in book form, Gone Girl is a must-see, and it’s right here in Baltimore! Based on Gillian Flynnunearths best seller, Gone Girl tells the story of Nick Dunne, whose wife, Amy, has gone missing. When Dunne, played by Ben Affleck, reports his wife’s disappearance, investigations turn what once seemed to be the ideal marriage into a crumbling union of man and wife. Under police and media pressure, Dunne’s lies and odd behavior make him a suspect of the disappearance (murder?) of Amy Dunne. I don’t want to spoil the twisted thriller, so I will say no more. Just head down to Senator Theatre, grab your large popcorn (extra butter!), and your box of “Buncha Crunch”, and enjoy unraveling the mystery! See show times here!

Just two days after making the announcement that Austin Davis, the 2nd-year gunslinger from the University of Southern Mississippi, would continue to be the starter for the St. Louis Rams, Fisher changed his mind and made the decision to start veteran quarterback Shaun Hill instead.
Davis has been the starter for 8 of the 9 games for the Rams this season after Hill went down in the season opener. In those 8 starts, Davis has gone 3-5, throwing for 2,001 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. Davis currently has a season passer rating of 85.1 and a QBR of 37.6.
The glaring issue for Davis is the fact that he has had many costly turnovers in his last couple of games. This past week against the division opponent Cardinals, Davis threw 2 interceptions and lost a fumble in the 4th quarter. But what 1st-year starter isn’t going to struggle against the Cardinals defense?
