Just a few minutes into the pilot of hip-hop star Eve's foray into comedy, her character goes out to a club and quickly gets herself stuck to a handsome guy. Literally stuck, dress fabric to pants zipper, her shapely behind to his manly crotch. So stuck that they have to wiggle into the ladies room together to get unstuck - followed, for some reason, by a parade of their friends. This doesn't tell you everything you need to know about Eve, but it tells you a lot. The singer plays Shelly Williams, just out of college and establishing a new clothing design business with two friends, the comfortably married Janie (Natalie Desselle-Reid, For Your Love)

The Orioles have been able to catch up on their sleep after completing two games over a 20-hour span in Boston. Their stretch of 15 consecutive games against American League East opponents -- there were 16 scheduled games but one home game against the Tampa Bay Rays was rained out -- ends with three games against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. After winning Monday's Patriots' Day game in Boston, the Orioles are now 16-8 in their last 24 games at Fenway Park. They haven't had that kind of recent success in Toronto.

It's nice to see that Laurel is getting a new movie theater. Long over due. Does Laurel really need another Outback and Panera Bread? If they really want to have restaurants how about the Cheesecake Factory or UNO. Why another grocery store when there is one a block away and another one about a mile away. Why another Sports Authority and another Party City when Laurel already has these two stores. Good to see that Old Navy is coming to Laurel. As for Burlington, it's nice but it's already been here and it wasn't that much of a big draw when it was open.

Hubert V. Simmons was a gentle man who threw a nasty knuckleball in Negro Leagues baseball, and for years he dreamed of establishing a museum that could tell a story about the national pastime before it was really national, when black players were barred from the majors. He died two months before a small museum opened for appointments-only viewing in the basement of his church in Lochearn, but friends and family were sure he was there in spirit on Wednesday at the Baltimore County Public Library in Owings Mills for the announcement that the memorabilia collection would soon open there, and play to much bigger crowds.
