All of the beautiful (and rich and famous) people must vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Baltimore's own Stacy Keibler and beau George Clooney are there, and they brought Keibler's good friend Torrie Wilson and her new boyfriend, Alex Rodrigez, according to deadspin.com .

One of the many competitions taking place in the Infield at Pimlico today -- along with the bikini contest, a 64-team cornhole tournament and some kind of competitive eating event you couldn't pay me to watch -- is the National Volleyball League’s inaugural event. It was created after the AVP tour ran out of money, I'm told. The 16-team double-elimination tournament, the first of the new beach volleyball tour’s six-stop season, started at Baltimore’s Rash Field on Friday and is wrapping up at the Preakness as I type this blog post.

Kentucky Derby winner Orb is the even-money favorite for the Preakness, so the biggest topics leading up to the weekend have, obviously, been about his chances and how to beat him on Saturday. “The jockey was just here," Mylute jockey Rosie Napravnik, the fiery 25-year-old, shot back. "Ask him.” Though Napravnik eventually talked quite a bit about her thoughts on Orb and her possible strategies coming out of the gate -- Orb drew post-position No. 1, while Mylute is at No. 5 -- she has her own worries about Mylute.

Kegasus, the quasi-mythical star of Preakness' latest ad campaign, held court at Pimlico Race Course 's infield Monday morning, sharing his pick to win Saturday's race and his expectations for InfieldFest fun. "Welcome, legendary friends," Kegasus said in a vaguely Irish accent. "Welcome to the infield. " Standing bare-chested in what appeared to be a step-in horse costume, Kegasus fielded a series of questions with the swagger of a delusional celebrity. But unlike, say, Charlie Sheen, Kegasus appears to be a winner for the marketing team that dreamed up the mascot.

Women planning to visit the beach in late August will have the opportunity to make their vacation like no other by participating in what Ocean City hopes will be the world's largest bikini parade. The bikini parade is the highlight of a planned Uptown Beach Bash, an event made to boost activity uptown in late August, drawing attention to an under utilized area during a slow part of the summer season. To break the Guinness World Record, set back in March by Panama City Beach, Fla., more than 450 women will need to participate in the parade, said Brad Hoffman of Spark Productions, the company organizing the event.
