If you are what you eat, then Greek softball is like the San Francisco Giants. There isnM-Ft a hot dog, a personal pizza or a box of Cracker Jack to be found on the menu board at the Olympic Softball Stadium. You can, however, buy yogurt, rice pudding, sorbet and tiramisu. Sounds like a page from the menu at the GiantsM-F SBC Park, home of brie, sushi and grilled ahi tuna sandwiches. But before writing off the Athens crowd as lightweights, know this: Beer comes in four flavors, including Heineken and Amstel Heavy.

Peter Athens has traded the football for a lacrosse stick. Athens, who was the starting quarterback of a Towson football program that advanced to the Football Championship Subdivision title game in January, has joined the lacrosse team. He was present - but did not play in - the No. 19 Tigers' 14-9 victory over Navy on Tuesday night. The 6-foot-1, 209-pound fifth-year senior was an All-Southern Maryland Athletic Conference player in lacrosse twice at Huntingtown and played for Towson in 2012 before concentrating on football.

Michael Phelps of Rodgers Forge will be competing on the swimming team at the Olympics in Athens. He may compete for eight gold medals (five individual events and three team relays). If Phelps matches swimmer Mark Spitz's feat of winning seven gold medals at the 1972 Games, he would earn a $1 million bonus from one of his corporate sponsors, Speedo.

During the swimming competition in Athens, Michael helps is sharing his thought in a diary, exclusively for The Sun. Sorry I haven't checked in lately, but the last few days have been pretty busy. I'm having a lot of fun here at the Athens Olympics, and having the time of my life. I'm just trying to stay focused, and stay rested. The 800 freestyle relay Wednesday night was amazing. That took a lot of emotion out of me.

Barring a setback, Towson quarterback Peter Athens will start in Saturday's Football Championship Subdivision title game against North Dakota State at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Tex. The fifth-year senior - who has been bothered by a sprained right (throwing) shoulder - has participated in the team's past couple practices, but he practiced fully Monday and said he expects to be a “full-go” when the No. 7 seed Tigers (13-2) clash with the back-to-back reigning national champion Bison (14-0)

The Towson football team will practice Friday night for the first time since Christmas, and there is considerable uncertainty over whether senior quarterback Peter Athens will be able to participate. If he can't, sophomore Connor Frazier figures to take most of the reps with the first-team offense, and coach Rob Ambrose said coaches and players are very confident in his ability to lead the No. 7 seed Tigers. Frazier would be making his first career start against No. 1 seed and reigning back-to-back national champion North Dakota State in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision title game on Jan. 4 at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Tex. “I have no worries about that whatsoever,” Ambrose said Friday afternoon during a conference call.

Gregg Frazier knew the Towson redshirt sophomore quarterback who struggled in the third quarter before scoring the game-winning touchdown against Eastern Washington last Saturday. As the youngest of three boys in his family, Connor Frazier - that quarterback - desperately wanted to play with his brothers, Gregg and Kyle, while growing up. They relented under one condition: no special exceptions for their brother, who is 8 years younger than Gregg and 3 years younger than Kyle. "He grew up with a football in his hand since he was just in diapers," said Gregg Frazier, a 28-year-old assistant football coach at Damascus High School in Montgomery County, where all three Frazier boys played and graduated.

Against Fordham, senior Peter Athens enjoyed the kind of outing of which quarterbacks dream. Athens set career highs in completion percentage and touchdowns in No. 7 seed Towson's 48-28 victory on Saturday in a NCAA Football Championship Subdivision tournament second-round game at Johnny Unitas Stadium. His 86.7 percent completion rate (13 of 15) topped the 76.2 percent (16 of 21) he completed in a 48-32 victory over Richmond on Oct. 26. And his three-touchdown showing eclipsed his previous best of two scores set three times earlier in the season.

Like a lot of teams that have faced No. 7 seed Towson this year, Fordham figured that the best place to hold down the high-scoring Tigers offense would be at the line of scrimmage. That was probably the right approach, but it didn't matter. While the Rams focused on the run, Towson quarterback Peter Athens picked the secondary apart with a terrific performance in a 48-28 win, completing 13 of 15 passes for 301 yards and a career-high three touchdowns as the Tigers scored touchdowns on seven of their first eight possessions.

Minutes after being sworn in as the new mayor of Annapolis on Monday, Mike Pantelides vowed to be a watchdog on city finances, and also to work on issues facing the state capital from crime to a sluggish business climate. In his inauguration speech at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, Pantelides offered few specifics on those broad issues, but did promise to hold open sessions once a month to listen to concerns of Annapolis residents, and repeated a refrain from his campaign, that "God gave us two ears and one mouth for a reason" - saying people should spend twice as much time listening as talking.
