Richard Gorelick seems content to let a hundred black-eyed Susans bloom with recipes featuring the likes of ginger beer, Fernet Branca and elderflower liqueur ( "New life for black-eyed Susan drink at Preakness," May 12). I say save your exotics for the betting window. Come post time on Preakness Day, pop open a Maryland brew or a Natty Boh if you must. Then put some ice in an Old-Fashioned glass and top with a generous pour of good rye. If it needs a name, call it a Lazy Susan.

I'm having a hard time figuring out how to dress business casual with my work boots today at Pimlico, but if that's the worst problem we have this weekend, it should be a good time. But before we go forward, let's look back on yesterday's local headlines in the Coffee Companion. - It's going to be a messy Black-Eyed Susan Day at Pimlico, but it should clear up tomorrow for the Preakness Stakes . - California Chrome is the overwhelming favorite after his Kentucky Derby win, but it's hardly guaranteed.

THE DARK SIDE of getting a black eye is that it doesn't do much for your public image. Unlike a milk mustache, which, thanks to a clever advertising campaign, has become a sign of celebrity, a black eye is still regarded as public proof of bad behavior.Sporting a "shiner" makes you an easy target for wisecracks. "So you got mouthy with the wife and she let you have it?" quipped a lifeguard at my neighborhood swimming pool as I floated past him.I had gone to the pool to soak in the cool waters, to escape the rough-and-tumble world, to heal and hide.

Nearly 2 inches of rain fell across the region Thursday night into Friday morning, canceling some races at Pimlico Race Course , closing roads and disrupting rail travel. At Pimlico, all six turf races scheduled for Black-Eyed Susan Day were moved to the dirt track, where conditions were listed as sloppy. But the tracks were expected to dry out in time for Saturday's Preakness. The rainfall, combined with the morning high tide, caused minor flooding on low-lying streets in downtown Annapolis, including Dock Street and Compromise Street.

NEW YORK -- Don't call it a tragedy. Tragedy is a kid lighting up a crack pipe. Tragedy is a senior citizen getting hit over the head by a mugger. Mike Tyson's tragedy is that he came from that environment and arrogantly thumbed his nose at any chance of redemption.It was the same arrogance that cost him the heavyweight title two years, to the very hour, before he lost a unanimous decision last night in Indianapolis. The night before he was knocked out by Buster Douglas, he sneered, "How dare they challenge me with their primitive skills."

In all his 17 years on the Howard County police force, Sgt. Samuel Chayt has never seen anything "even one-tenth" the equal of the beating, captured on videotape, that white Los Angeles police administered to a black motorist March 3."It was unbelievable," he said with apparent astonishment. "That many people standing around, and nobody stopped it."Brian Cwalina, a plainclothes officer in Baltimore County who spent three years doing internal investigations, called it "obscene.""It looked like a shark-feeding frenzy," he said.

A 15-year-old cashier at a Gambrills supermarket got a black eye Tuesday as she wrestled with a shoplifter in a muddy field next to the store, county police said yesterday.The shoplifter got away, but the steaks he tried to steal were scattered near the doorway, still in their plastic wrappers."I was asked for help, and I just went after him," said Trisha Hendershot, a cashier at the IGA Super Food store in the 800 block of Annapolis Road in Gambrills.She said her manager, Karen Rent, saw a couple with two children enter the store about 7 p.m., and walk to the meats section.

The detective who rode patrol with Baltimore Officer Clyde Rawlins Jr. on July 9 testified yesterday that he didn't hear words exchanged between Rawlins and the man Rawlins is accused of giving a black eye. Rawlins is on trial on charges of assault, perjury and misconduct in office, stemming from an incident in West Baltimore last summer that ended in the arrest of Larry Nathaniel, 19.

The stat sheet from the NBA game reads as follows: At least nine fans injured. Two hospitalized. Four players suspended indefinitely, with more sanctions expected today. And a police investigation that could take weeks to unfold. What began as a regular-season contest between the Indiana Pacers and Detroit Pistons in Auburn Hills, Mich., on Friday night devolved into the latest in a string of violent episodes that has given pro sports - as well as some athletes and fans - a black eye. Players climbed into the stands to slug fans.

When the lights went out at Pimlico Race Course during the Preakness, Baltimore looked as klutzy as a runner who breaks his toe in the kitchen just before a major marathon.It was ridiculous and it hurt."Bad, bad publicity," says William Donald Schaefer, the promotion-minded former mayor and governor, sounding like anelder statesman chastising the new generation.A record 91,000 crowd, a record 92 degrees, a busted transformer, the lights go out, the air-conditioning shuts down, the betting machines don't work.

Friday morning's torrential rain gave fans and handicappers at Pimlico's Black-Eyed Susan Day a much different race card than they had planned for. But by the time the showpiece Black-Eyed Susan Stakes ran under a clear blue sky Friday afternoon and the Counting Crows took the stage later that evening, the torrential downpours that Pimlico officials said dumped 2 1/4 inches of rain at the track were a distant memory. "The track is going to be fast [tomorrow]," Pimlico racing analyst Gabby Gaudet said from her trackside post Friday evening.

The deluge forecast to soak the region Friday could make for a soggy, miserable Black-Eyed Susan Day at Pimlico Race Course — though officials remain confident in a fast track for a sunny and cool Preakness Stakes on Saturday. A cold front was expected to bring storms overnight and into Friday morning, followed by a moisture-laden low pressure system, according to the National Weather Service. Heavy downpours are expected to dump 2-3 inches of rain, with higher amounts in some areas, flooding streams and small rivers, with a flash flood watch in effect through Friday afternoon.

Mounted next to Stall 40 in the Preakness Stakes barn at Pimlico Race Course is a three-foot plaque emblazoned by black-eyed susan flowers. Each year, Stall 40 houses the Kentucky Derby winning thoroughbred, and the adjacent wooden sign commemorates the horses that ended their stay at Pimlico with a Preakness victory. If trainers were immortalized on the plague, John Servis would find his name near the bottom, next to one of the latest celebrated horses. Ten years ago, Servis trained Smarty Jones to wins in the 2004 Derby and Preakness before just falling short of claiming the Triple Crown with a second-place finish at the Belmont Stakes.

After the Counting Crows released their fifth album, 2008's “Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings,” singer Adam Duritz had had enough - not of the spotlight or the road, but of himself. “I got kind of sick of myself at that point,” Duritz said on the phone from his home in New York recently. “I got tired of just emptying [my] guts onto the page every few years for people. I think I needed a break from it.” So the 49-year-old Baltimore native - who will return on Friday with the Crows to headline the Black-Eyed Susan Day concert at Pimlico Race Course - shifted his focus creatively.

Take vodka, rum, whiskey, bourbon, peach schnapps, orange juice, pineapple juice, sour mix, orange-flavored liqueur, elderflower-flavored liqueur, shake, pour into a souvenir glass and garnish with an orange slice, cherry and mint sprig. Then dump it on the infield grass and get a real drink. It's the poor old black-eyed Susan, the official cocktail of the Preakness. It has been mocked, derided and dismissed as a publicity stunt. Campaigns have been waged to replace it. Its history has been mangled and misunderstood.

WASHINGTON -- To a fellow coach, Monday's Latrell Sprewell-P.J. Carlesimo incident was a "black eye" for the sport. To a couple of Carlesimo's former players, Sprewell's alleged assault actually wasn't all that surprising.So it went as the news spread: Golden State Warriors All-Star guard Sprewell twice attacked coach Carlesimo at the team's practice facility and reportedly threatened to kill him.On Monday, the Warriors announced they were going to suspend Sprewell for at least 10 games -- which would force him to forfeit approximately $940,000 of his salary.

Thank goodness the rest of the world has more taste than Baltimore and the powers that do advertising for Pimlico and the Preakness. I followed the coverage of the race on Channel 11 and then the national coverage of the Preakness, and only once that I remember was "Kegasus" even mentioned, and there was not one picture of said abomination. Kegasus was, without a doubt, a black eye (not black eyed Susan) to the state of Maryland. Gross! Bobbi

Counting Crows, The Fray and Annie Bosko will perform at Pimlico Race Course's Black-Eyed Susan Day on May 16, the Maryland Jockey Club announced this morning. The Crows are most famous for their radio-rock run in the '90s, when singles such as "Mr. Jones," "Round Here" and "A Long December" dominated airwaves. (Fans of the movie "Cruel Intentions" will certainly remember the piano ballad "Colorblind" as well.) Expect to hear "Raining in Baltimore," too. The Fray, which released its fourth album "Helios" a couple of weeks ago, is most known for the singles "Over My Head (Cable Car)"
