MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- Does the 1991 Beach Ball Classi have its greatest collection of high school basketball talent in its 11-year history?Maybe."There's no doubt it's the best [holiday] tournament this season," said Brick Oettinger, recruiting columnist for The Poop Sheet, which covers the Atlantic Coast Conference.

"If you hold the door for someone and they don't say, 'Thank you,' that person deserves to be in hell," Chuck Palahniuk rails - in the most mild-mannered way possible. "It also ticks me off when someone pushes the button on the elevator more than once," complains the author of two nonfiction books and 13 works of fiction, including "Fight Club. " "Pretty much everyone in New York is going to hell, because they never push that button fewer than 20 times. " Perhaps it's not surprising that Palahniuk's latest novel is "Doomed," in which the characters are routinely condemned to eternal damnation for such minor social sins as passing gas in public.

For a while there, we vacationed with Lance Armstrong every summer. And Tyler Hamilton and George Hincapie and Levi Leipheimer and Floyd Landis. All the boys. They'd be in France, of course, while we were at the shore in Delaware. But the nasal British drone of Phil Liggett calling the Tour de France was as much the soundtrack of those vacations as the muffled rumble of the waves. The mountain vistas and the lovely little towns of France as recognizable as our ocean sunrises and our favorite shops and restaurants.

Ocean City is ready for the spotlight this weekend as the town launches into the summer season with a new laser light show. The O.C.

"We're excited about it," says Donna Abbott, public relations manager for the Town of Ocean City.

From the start of Friday afternoon's Bryn Mawr-Notre Dame Prep girls lacrosse game, Mawrtians' goalie Molly Wolf felt she was in a goalies' duel. Wolf and NDP goalie Mary-Sean Wilcox have known each other since the fifth grade and play on the same club team. Each started off the game hot, but in the end Wolf made the only save in overtime to preserve an 8-7 victory for the No. 2 Mawrtians. The No. 7 Blazers put a lot more pressure on Wolf than the visiting Mawrtians did on Wilcox, who made six terrific saves against 13 shots on goal.

It's now summertime (unofficially) in Ocean City and some of you will be hitting the shore for the first time since last year. I took a gander around town during last week's Memorial Day celebrations, looking for new places and new faces. If you're headed over for this weekend's Ravens Beach Bash , here are some tips on changes at the beach that you'll want to know about: 1. Lasers we love. Visitors last Sunday got to enjoy some green lasers- no, not the kind from two summers ago that drove everyone crazy.

New York City has its descending ball. Miami Beach has its giant orange. And Princess Anne has its stuffed muskrat. At midnight Saturday, the town of 2,400 people in Somerset County will become the latest in a line of Maryland communities — and scores of towns across the country — to embrace a growing tradition: dropping a locally significant if less than elegant object from a great height as a way of welcoming the new year. "The muskrat is a part of our heritage, and we wanted to drop something relevant to us," said Ben Adler, director of the Princess Anne Main Street Partnership, one of the brains behind the plan.

I hate Shark Week, and I am not going to be nice about it anymore. Really, for years on the TV and media beat, I have wondered why anyone gets hyped up about it. I assumed viewers had to know they were being played. Of course, everyone understands, I thought, that Shark Week is a marketing concept manufactured by the PR folks at Discovery to attract eyeballs in the middle of summer -- eyeballs that could be sold to advertisers. In other words, eyeballs that could be exploited for the greater profit of Discovery.

What does it take to lure a yuppie from Washington up to Baltimore on a 96-degree day? "A pool and some beer and some volleyball," said Jen Collins, 33, hoisting her tumbler of Labatt's Blue Light and wriggling with evident pleasure around the cloudy, leaf-choked water of a kiddie pool on the southerly banks of the Inner Harbor. The bikinied banker with PNC Financial Services Group and her three teammates had hijacked the inflatable pool to cool off between matches at the fourth annual end-of-season beach volleyball tournament at the Rash Field sand courts.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - And now, here are your Tampa Bay Devil Rays. The words echo through Tropicana Field, bouncing off empty seats and the heads of people who barely take notice. Soon, another first pitch will be thrown to begin another game inside a building with so many catwalks, wires and girders, it looks like the blueprints came from an erector set. The paid attendance is announced at 10,566, which is 226 more than Monday's series opener against the Orioles. Minutes pass before foul balls are retrieved in the upper deck.
