Athletes of every description want to know what pre-event meal will give them "the edge."For most athletes, a light meal, three to four hours before starting time is the best bet.Maximize your big event energy output this way:* Don't stuff.Daily workouts and a high carbohydrate training diet have stocked your muscles with energy for your big event.Overeating just before game time will not increase your energy stores. Lugging around a huge meal may, however, keep your circulation focused on digestion instead of sports, leaving you sluggish, or even crampy.

Few musicians generate the affection that Itzhak Perlman has enjoyed from the public for the better part of four decades. That bond is still going strong, as was evident the moment he made his entrance at the Music Center at Strathmore Thursday night to begin a dual concert with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra as violin soloist and conductor. The sight of the 68-year-old Perlman making his way on crutches to his chair understandably seemed to worry the audience, and the initial, hearty ovation subsided long before he could get situated.

David Horowitz, the quite successful biographer of America's rich and powerful family dynasties, has now written his own story. Its fulcrum is his account of his journey through the Sixties and out the other side, moving from left to extreme left until a sudden epiphany at the era's end and then rapidly across to America's right intellectual edge.During much of the time period covered in Horowitz's account of his passage from red diaper baby to Black Panther Party functionary to Ronald Reagan devotee, I was a student leader and an organizer against the Vietnam War, a founder of the draft resistance movement who eventually spent 20 months in Federal prison for refusing my orders to report for military service.

Who says jazz isn't popular? The "Bridges From the Heart" jazz concert was a sellout. Some 700 jazz enthusiasts jammed into the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall lobby, as some local jazz musicians did some jammin' themselves in one corner of the room. Folks sipped wine and browsed a buffet, awaiting the night's big event -- a concert by acclaimed trumpeter Wynton Marsalis; his father, pianist Ellis Marsalis Jr.; and several other musicians and artists. The evening celebrated the 10th anniversary of Learning Independence Through Computers.

What does a hungry biker need to sustain himself on a 50-mile trip through the wilds of Harford County? How 'bout coffee, orange juice, bagels and biscuits with sausage gravy? That's what awaited about 100 guests of the March of Dimes of Maryland's "VIP Breakfast" in the Log Cabin at Jones Junction in Bel Air. The spread was a precursor to the day's big event -- the "5th Annual March of Dimes RIDE." Some 3000 motorcyclists rode a scenic route through Harford County, having raised pledges that totaled more than $205,000 for the March of Dimes' fight to save babies and lower infant mortality and pre-term delivery rates in Maryland.

REPORT by an Old Grad, back from Class Reunion at Alma Mater:"Weather was perfect; the campus, after the onslaught of one more academic year, was astonishingly beautiful; the students having lit out for summer scenes, we had the place blessedly to ourselves."Carrying our luggage from the carpark into a dorm, I at once crossed paths with a guy I'd seen before, somewhere. He greeted me by name, and kindly told me his. The college's director of development."But not one thing did he say about endowment campaign, estate planning or even annual giving.

With long-term repair work on the Jones Falls Expressway underway, and major funding for the Red Line coming, Baltimore is in the midst of and building up to a large amount of transportation work — all with an eye toward better connectivity and reliability for city commuters. The JFX work also means headaches, and the Red Line has plenty of critics, some of who say it is misconceived and leaves out too many residents. There are other challenges facing the city's transportation system, including a high number of accidents involving pedestrians and the ever-present issue of congestion during large-scale events downtown.

Toward that goal, Copley's Deep Creek 2014 LLC will be helping run next weekend's USA Canoe Kayak Slalom Team Trials there, as well as the sport's world championships in...

Brock Lesnar and Triple H officially sealed the deal on Raw and will meet at Wrestlemania. The two stipulations are that it will be No Holds Barred (similar to their match at Summerslam 2012) and that Triple H's career will be on the line. This, of course, is met with the same questions and concerns from longtime WWE fans whenever a career is on the line. Is it really on the line? From a performer standpoint, Triple H is in terrific shape. You could absolutely see him being able to handle several big matches a year.

Every community has positive attributes and problems. Heck, some states - New Jersey and West Virginia, to name two in the immediate vicinity - have their own brand of associated jokes. Yet plenty of people are proud to call New Jersey and West Virginia home, and both states can boast having strong tourism components to their respective economies. Jokes about what exit a certain attraction is off of or the number of dentists per 100,000 population are likely to persist, but that doesn't mean either state is lacking or in need of making a particular change because of what someone who lives in New York or Ohio or Maryland might think.

Now I think I know what it feels like to be Jewish at Christmas time. But at least in Baltimore, Jewish folks can find each other on Christmas and make alternate plans. A lot of my Jewish friends go to the movies on Christmas, for example. Sounds like a reasonable idea to me, but I couldn't find even a single person to meet me at the movies Sunday night when the Ravens played the 49ers ("Baltimore party hosts go all out for the Super Bowl ," Feb. 3). For all I know, the movies weren't even open.

St. Mary's College of Maryland is making an offer that sounds hard to refuse. Give back the college's Governor's Cup trophy and get $1,000, no questions asked. And one other thing. St. Mary's would like it back before Aug. 6, when the college's 31st annual Governor's Cup Yacht Race takes off from Annapolis, headed for St. Mary's and the finish line the next day. "The college desperately wants to find this missing piece of the Governor's Cup's history," Torre M. Meringolo, vice president for the college's office of development, said in a statement.

WWE "go home" shows always seem to be the most scrutinized. Often, pundits will cast away the past several weeks of television and focus most on the last Raw before a pay-per-view event, often with the same question -- did this show make me interested in buying the pay-per-view? While it's a fair question, perhaps its a skewed way to look at it when you are analyzing just one isolated show -- in particular, the closing moments of that show. If we were to do that for this past episode of Raw, then the closing segment did a very good job of creating interest and generating buys for the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view coming this Sunday.
