Pro Soccer

Cougars@Blast

Where -- 1st Mariner Arena

When -- Tonight, 7:35

What now? -- The first 2,000 fans will receive a Blast bobblehead doll. And, yes, you're correct to think it would be in poor taste to use your fingers to put your doll in a Tim Wittman bobbleheadlock. The Blast also hosts the Philadelphia KiXX at 5:05 p.m. Sunday. Tickets for both games start at $14 and are available at 410-73-BLAST.

Baseball

Baysox Family Funfest

Where -- Prince George's Stadium, Bowie

When -- Tomorrow, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

What now? -- The Double-A affiliate of the Orioles will begin selling 2006 single-game tickets, and Dora the Explorer, SpongeBob, Nemo and Marty from Madagascar are scheduled to make an appearance. But if your idea of fun with someone named Marty would involve former Red Sox second baseman Marty Barrett instead of the Disney character who shares his first name, maybe you should sit this one out. For information, call 301-805-6000.

Dog Competition

March Mayhem

Where -- Carroll County Agriculture Center, 706 Agriculture Center Drive, Westminster

When -- Sunday, noon-5 p.m.

What now? -- The Appalachian Air Canines present a free event involving dogs of all breeds in three disc-catching competitions. For information, call 410-596-9153. The organization recommends bringing a blanket or lawn chair to sit on. And with that many dogs around, you won't want to take your chances sitting on the ground, anyway.
