Baltimore Celebrity Smackdown -- which chefs will make it through?

cindy wolfThe first round of voting in the Sun's annual Baltimore Celebrity Smackdown wraps up today. Timothy Dean is trailing badly behind Laura Lippman and Bryan Voltaggio is taking a beating from Marin Alsop. But Duff Goldman is maintaining a comfortable-looking lead over John Harbaugh and, in the closest among the 16 first-round match-ups, Cindy Wolf (left) has the slimmest of leads over Nick Markakis.

I am still hellbent on pushing Anne Tyler ahead of Michael Phelps.
