If there's any joy in Baltimore this week, it comes from baseball and the Orioles. With this frustrating city having slipped into another cycle of summer shootings - one of them ending the life of a 3-year-old girl - I guess we turn to baseball for communal relief from all that's awful, all that makes us angry and weary. Having the Orioles in first place helps. And, further, it helps to hear a pleasant fellow named Mike Cataneo tell why his father bought four season tickets to Orioles games 60 years ago, for the team's inaugural season here.

The vacuum cleaner business must be booming in Essex, because Big Mike McCarthy is getting the same answer at almost every house."Just bought a new one last week," a smiling woman says through a screen door.Big Mike fended off the rejection politely and gave it one more shot, handing the woman a tiny plastic bag of wood chips."If you just walk around and agree with everyone, you'll never get in," he said over his shoulder."This is a free gift from me," he said in a fast mumble. "Just scatter them on the rug and vacuum them up. Makes the room smell nice.

The Blind Side Michael Lewis W.W. Norton / 288 pages / $24.95 The Blind Side is about big-time college football, the black inner city, the nouveau-riche white South and evangelical Christianity. Even if you have no interest in the topics individually, read the book. In Michael Lewis' hands, The Blind Side's whole exceeds its parts and dissolves its genres. It's not a jock book. It's not a sociology book. It's a storybook about modern society, ancient virtues and the power of love, money and talent to do a little good.

Towson freshman Nick Williams said he dreamed the night before that his visiting Generals would vanquish a streaking Catonsville squad on its home field, but he added, after last night's 12-6 victory, "This is more than a dream come true."Senior Mike Williams blocked a field-goal attempt by the Comets with three seconds to play, and his little brother, Nick, scooped the ball off a muddy field before racing untouched some 75 yards for the game-winning score as the Generals (6-1, 5-1) broke a four-game winning streak by the Comets (6-2, 5-2)

Metallica. Would a band by any other name rock as hard? Would Snoop Dogg still be the hizzle fo' shizzle if he went by his given name, Calvin Broadus? Consider the White Stripes. The name alone suggests something minimal, something hip, like detailing on a Vespa - the perfect match for a guitar and drums duo too cool for the room. Or Slayer. There's an act that will never be mistaken for a boy band. Whether you're starting up a music act with stars in your eyes or trying to make sense of the names on the extra-early holiday wish list of CDs passed along by your favorite music fan, we've put together a highly unscientific guide to what's in a name, anyway, when it comes to pop music.

SEATTLE -- With his inimitable blend of wit and smugness, Mike Mussina says he doesn't care if he ever wins 20 games in a season. He trivializes questions about the quality of his best performances. Author of a near-perfect game against the Cleveland Indians in May, the Orioles ace recently stared down a broadcast type who breathlessly wanted to know if an August performance was his best."Were you at the Cleveland game?" Mussina said, expressionless.Or, for that matter, how about the June game in Milwaukee when he carried a no-hitter through seven innings?

W hen Michael Oher takes the field as a Baltimore Raven this fall, a national audience of readers and moviegoers even bigger than the Ravens' fan base will be cheering for him. The amazing story behind his rise to football stardom will fill the bestseller shelves at bookstores on Oct. 12, with a new edition of Michael Lewis' powerhouse piece of nonfiction "The Blind Side." And if all goes according to plan, it will also pack movie theaters on Nov. 20, when writer-director John Lee Hancock's movie version hits theaters, starring newcomer Quinton Aron as Oher and Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw as Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy - the wealthy, white, conservative, evangelical couple who devoted themselves to the happiness and success of "Big Mike," a black kid from the meanest streets of Memphis, Tenn.
