LOS ANGELES -- It isn't all falling leaves and letter sweaters, marching bands and Saturday shadows. Sometimes, college football's realities sweep through its magic with the sort of gale force that would make a bundled booster shudder. Sometimes, Rudy gets run over. Meet UCLA's Andrew Baumgartner. He is that walk-on wide receiver who tried out for the team on a whim, played well enough in training camp last summer to earn a scholarship, caught a touchdown pass to start the victory over Oklahoma, caught a fourth-down pass on the winning drive against Washington.

Jamie Francis sat slumped in the back of a new powerboat yesterday as she struggled to recall the first time she attended the Baltimore Boat Show. "The first time," the 6-year-old said to her mother, Diane Francis of Stevensville, "I was in your tummy." Jamie was one of the more than 25,000 people who officials expect to attend the nine-day event that started Saturday and features more than 500 powerboats. The boats are displayed on more than 215,000 square feet at the Baltimore Convention Center.
