"Fish on!" called P.J. Klavon, as he reached for a trap hauled from the placid waters of the Tred Avon River. Inside the black metal cage wriggled a single white perch, a safe distance from a blue crab. The fish weren't exactly jumping last week into the Bay Commitment, a 41-foot research vessel owned by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. After a morning's work collecting more than 100 traps set in the river the day before, the vessel's crew had seen barely a half-bushel of crabs, fewer than two dozen fish and a single eel. Klavon, a lieutenant junior grade in NOAA's uniformed service, didn't have many opportunities to sing out. Fortunately for these trappers, they were fishing for science, not a living.

On Impact on Thursday, Kurt Angle cut a promo in which he again brought up Jeff Jarrett's three young daughters. He said that after he gets through with Jarrett, the girls will be orphans. Jarrett's wife, Jill, succumbed to breast cancer last year. By my count, this is the third instance in which Jill Jarrett's death has been used for story-line fodder. I just don't see the entertainment value in any of this. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/ringposts)

As early voting got underway Thursday in the primary race for governor, the four Republicans competing for the GOP nomination jockeyed to present themselves as the most qualified to take on a Democrat in November. The candidates taped a final televised forum in a Washington studio and, as they have in the past, largely agreed that tax cuts are in order after eight years under Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley. But the normally genial discussion among the Republicans was punctuated by each candidate trying to reinforce his credentials as the conservative most likely to succeed in a state where Democrats hold a 2-1 registration advantage.

ATLANTA -- If it isn't one international incident, it's another. The United States was matched up against another one of its political rivals in last night's 220-pound freestyle wrestling final, and the tight decision that gave Pittsburgh's Kurt Angle the second American wrestling gold of the day created another nasty scene, this time involving the delegation from Iran.The night before, the Chinese women's softball team nearly walked off the field after a disputed home run that would eventually give the United States the first gold medal awarded in that event.

After writing that Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly would make a great heel manager, I started thinking of a potential angle for him in WWE. I came up with the idea of a pay-per-view match between left-leaning Mick Foley and right-leaning JBL, with Al Franken and O'Reilly in their respective corners. Former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura would serve as the special referee. The stipulation for the match is that if Foley wins, Franken gets five minutes in the ring with O'Reilly. The promos leading up to the bout would be off the charts.

ROCK HILL, S.C -- For the past nine weeks, Home Team Sports producer Joan O'Brien and director Tim Walbert have been cruising up and down Tobacco Road, bringing Atlantic Coast Conference women's basketball into your homes. Admittedly, ACC women's basketball isn't the highest-profile HTC sport, even on the channel you cheer for, but O'Brien and Walbert have approached the game with the same intensity and professionalism that HTS has brought to its award-winning Orioles coverage."No, you don't have Alonzo Mourning against Shaquille O'Neal, but you do see better playmaking and some really talented athletes here.

Single-A Delmarva center fielder Matthew Angle is not one to sit still, particularly when he finds himself standing on first base. The Shorebirds' leadoff hitter, taken in the seventh round of the 2007 draft out of Ohio State, has 23 stolen bases this season to lead the team. That total is also tops among all players in the Orioles system and comes on the heels of his breaking the Aberdeen single-season stolen-base record set last year with 34. "As a leadoff guy, you try to get on base, try to steal bases and try to do as much as you can to cause havoc on the base paths," said Angle, who has been thrown out attempting to steal eight times this season.

World Wrestling Entertainment commentators Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler spoke in a somber tone that was eerily familiar to pro wrestling fans during last week's broadcast of Monday Night Raw. It was a segment devoid of the usual hyperbole and theatrics of professional wrestling, a signal to viewers that what they were seeing was not part of a story line. Too often over the years, what came next was the announcement that a pro wrestler, usually in his 30s or 40s, had died. This time, however, the news was far less grave.

Were the Packers-Steelers Super Bowl being played in 2020, this might be the view from your living room: You want to follow Troy Polamalu? Punch that information into your three-dimensional video display and a glowing virtual disk appears under the Steelers safety and tracks his every movement. You want to see how crisply Greg Jennings ran that route? Instruct the board to erase the players around him, and it's as if the Packers receiver is running alone. Every conceivable statistic, bit of historical information and on-field camera angle is a few button pushes away.

SARASOTA, FLA. - Submarine pitchers are a different breed. From their quirky deliveries to the grips, release points and arm actions they use, few aspects of the way they pitch translate to the conventional overhand thrower. Orioles right-hander Darren O'Day - who has pitched to a 2.23 ERA as a dependable late-inning reliever over the past two seasons - is the perfect example. Over his career, O'Day has relied on a sinker and slider combination to get hitters out. He's tried to develop a changeup in the past, but hasn't been comfortable enough to throw it during a pressure situation in a game.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Heather R. Mizeur called for tightening of Maryland's laws on long guns Thursday night in the wake of the shotgun attack that took three lives at The Mall in Columbia Saturday. Her proposal came as the Montgomery County delegate met Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler at a forum that drew two-thirds of the Democratic field in the 2014 race for governor to the giant Leisure World senior complex in Montgomery County. Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, whose father died earlier in the day, did not attend.

Several blogs, critics and media outlets have complained that the characters Swagger and Colter are portraying on WWE TV are "right wing racists.

Today, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) recommended that wrestling be removed from the 2020 Olympic Games . The recommendation was ultimately made by secret ballot of several rounds, and wrestling was voted out from a final group that included modern pentathlon, taekwondo and field hockey. This is an unsettling decision for many in the pro wrestling community, a landscape that is full of successful amateur wrestlers at all levels, including former Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle, a TNA wrestler.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- By the time the grounder reached third base that day in Viera, Jeff Conine knew his throw was probably headed anywhere except first base. Pain inside his right shoulder told him something was wrong, maybe seriously wrong. The sensation flared between innings as he made a warm-up throw across the diamond. "That throw absolutely killed me," Conine said of the warm-up toss. "When I got the ball, I knew it was going to hurt like hell if I tried to go over the top so I sidearmed it. It wasn't close."

With a gold medal draped around his neck, Kurt Angle couldn't hold back the tears as he stood proudly on the podium, his right hand across his heart, as "The Star-Spangled Banner" played. It was the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, and Angle had just won the 220-pound freestyle wrestling competition. The fact that he even qualified for the Olympics was amazing, because he did it with a broken neck, which he had suffered while winning the nationals. Coming from a blue-collar background, the clean-cut, baby-faced Angle was quickly embraced as America's newest sports hero.

As if the U.S. needed to shoot well, too. They're already the top men's basketball team in the Olympics, able to drive and dunk and put up a display better than anybody. So they drove a stake through Nigeria in a preliminary game, 156-73, making a massive number of 3-pointers Thursday and smashing the Olympic record for points in a game. Carmelo Anthony (Towson Catholic) scored 37 points, the most ever for a U.S. player in the Olympics, and set another U.S. Olympic record by making 10 3-pointers (he needed only 12 attempts)
