CAN YOU TEACH an old guy new tech? Until recently, I would have said, "No." But then I became an earplug person, one of those characters who meanders through life with devices stuck in his ears. In my case, the aural accoutrements are earphones for an iPod shuffle, a tiny digital music player that delivers astonishing sound. Last weekend, I had the earplugs in as I did weekend chores, the modern-day equivalent, I guess, of whistling while I worked. Cozying up to a digital music player represents a major change in my attitude toward technology.

Anybody who dedicates his life to reading books believes in rescuing things from oblivion," a character says halfway into Nilo Cruz's Anna in the Tropics. The 2003 Pulitzer Prize-winning play not only advocates rescuing books, it also advocates rescuing romance, family and tradition. As is fitting for a play about old-fashioned ideals, Anna - which is receiving its area premiere at Washington's Arena Stage - is also structurally old-fashioned, and the tale it tells is, in many respects, a time-worn account of love and loss.

One of the latest hot-spot trends is about to hit Baltimore. We're about to get our first hookah lounge. Yep, hookah lounges are all the rage in L.A. and Las Vegas these days. So maybe the closest you've come to one of those Turkish water pipes is reading about it being used by the caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland. But, according to Kris Golshan, if you liked the cigar bars of the 1990s, you're going to love the hookah lounge of the 2000s. And in Baltimore, that's the Zeeba Lounge, which Kris is opening soon in Federal Hill.

HOUSTON - All the Carolina Panthers wanted was for Jake Delhomme to have a shot at leading them to victory in the fourth quarter. No matter how bad he looked for most of the first three quarters of the Super Bowl, they knew he"d come through when it mattered most. He did. It just wasn't enough to top the last-second dramatics of New England kicker Adam Vinatieri. Despite a go-ahead 85-yard touchdown pass to Muhsin Muhammad and a 12-yarder to Ricky Proehl that tied it with 1:08 left, Delhomme could only watch helplessly as Vinatieri kicked the Patriots past the Panthers, 32-29, last night.

Until a few years ago, I never imagined I'd enjoy a trip to Florida. I thought all it had to offer is a Mickey Mouse amusement park, kitschy roadside attractions, shopping malls and flirtations with skin cancer. I was wrong. Tampa has got it mostly right, particularly for those of us drawn to cities that allow their roots to show. Tampa, located on the Gulf Coast, has its upscale shopping districts, aquarium, major league sports, the largest performing-arts complex south of Washington, and a 21,000-seat ice arena that doubles as one of the highest-grossing pop-concert venues in the country.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The death of Spectacular Bid last week of an apparent heart attack at age 27 left two thoroughbreds who reside side by side as the greatest living racehorses. Cigar and John Henry, revered residents of the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, rank 1-2 among thoroughbreds still alive in accomplishment and, fortunately for fans, visitor accessibility. About 1 million people visit the 1,200-acre park each year, and at least 25 percent come expressly to see Cigar and John Henry, said Cathy Roby, manager of the Hall of Champions.

Zelda G. Cohen, a prominent figure in Maryland racing circles for more than 40 years, died of congestive heart failure Friday at Northwest Hospital Center. She was 99. Born Zelda Greenberg in Baltimore and raised on Whitelock Street, she worked in sales at the downtown Hahn Shoe Store on Lexington Street after her graduation from Eastern High School. In 1928, she married Ben Cohen, a Baltimore businessman who with his brother Herman later owned Pimlico Race Course for 34 years. He also established WAAM-TV - now WJZ - in 1948.

On the morning of Sept. 13, 1862, men of the 27th Indiana Infantry stumbled upon a crucial document on the ground just south of Frederick. Gen. Robert E. Lee's "lost order," wrapped around three cigars, was now in the possession of the Army of the Potomac. That fair Saturday morn found troops of the Union 12th Corps bivouacked outside Frederick on a site previously occupied by Confederates under Maj. Gen. Daniel Harvey Hill. Sgt. John M. Bloss noticed the yellowish package: a bundle of fragrant cigars bound with a Confederate order.

Looking for a way to beat the heat and boredom of a torrid August afternoon, Karen Severson landed at what she called a "really cool" auction at the Columbia Hilton yesterday. Minutes into the state comptroller's sale of the contents of 200 unclaimed safe-deposit boxes, the Mayo resident owned an 1899 dollar bill and several Liberty head nickels. "I don't collect anything, but I had $20 to spend, and I thought this would be fun," Severson said. "I am hoping they get to the jewelry before too long."

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - As the years pass and one after another of racing's potential stars fade, Cigar's light glows brighter. Yesterday, it glowed most brilliant. Cigar led the stellar roster of horses and humans inducted into the National Museum of Racing's Hall of Fame in a ceremony at the Fasig-Tipton Sales Pavilion across Union Avenue from Saratoga. Born in Maryland at Country Life Farm near Bel Air, Cigar launched his Hall of Fame career when his trainer, Bill Mott, switched him from turf to dirt in 1994, when the horse was 4. Cigar rattled off 16 straight victories from October 1994 to July 1996, tying Citation's modern record for consecutive wins.
