Mr. Flip is so old that he remembers the discontinued Olympic sport of military patrol, a precursor to biathlon. And he fondly recalls the demonstration sports of bandy (ice hockey with a ball), ice stock sport (a German variant of curling) and skijoring (skiing behind horses). Alas, Mr. Flip's favorite events are, like compulsory figures, long gone, but he's still exercising his option to watch the Winter Games, which start in earnest today. Also looking forward to the action is talk-show host David Letterman, who last week offered his "Top Ten Reasons I'm Looking Forward To The Olympics."

Simpler is better, if you ask William Bandy of Matrics, Inc. It's the simplicity of the patents he and partner Michael Arneson have made in radio frequency identification that Bandy thinks will change the way businesses keep track of their merchandise. The tiny Columbia-based start-up, founded by Bandy and Arneson, both engineers from the National Security Administration, makes paper-thin antennas embedded with silicon chips and readers that can track the location and keep a history of thousands of the antennas at a time.

Liberty coach Steve Insley was shaking his head and wearing a weak grin several minutes after his fifth-ranked Lions defeated visiting Damascus, 4-3, in a Class 3A West region semifinal yesterday.The reason: the odd ending that let Liberty (18-3) advance to tomorrow's region final at Thomas Johnson, which shared the Central Maryland Conference championship with the Lions."I've never seen anything like it," said Insley.The Lions held a 4-0 lead in the seventh when Mike Simons of Damascus reached second with one out after second baseman Jon Felmey threw away his grounder.

Liberty sophomore pitcher Bryan Bandy learned he would be starting his first varsity game about an hour before the Lions took the field at South Carroll yesterday afternoon.It was understandable that he was a little nervous in the first couple of innings. The rest of the way, though, it didn't show.The right-hander settled in nicely, relying on a fastball that continually found the corners in going six strong innings to lead the No. 6-ranked Lions to a 8-2 win over South Carroll.Not only did his effort help provide the Lions (15-3)
