On its release in 1961, Enzo Ferrari called the Jaguar E-Type “the most beautiful car ever made.”  Wisely, Jaguar decided that its alphabetic successor, the F-Type, wouldn't be a replacement for its iconic forebear. Rather, this new, low-slung two-seater is a bold statement of what's new, modern, cool and sexy. Driving it is to understand the definition of thrilling. Oh sure, it's also a luxury sports car: There's that tastefully refined, leather-clad interior and posh, toggle-rich cockpit (using only the finest materials and metals, of course)

The Chesapeake Bayhawks had been officially eliminated from playoff contention entering their game against the New York Lizards on Sunday. That didn't stop them from making a late comeback in a 12-11 road win for their fourth win of the Major League Lacrosse season. "Our theme and motto for today was that sometimes playing for nothing means everything," Chesapeake coach Dave Cottle said. "Even if we didn't have a chance at the playoffs, we could still play for pride and for each other.

Buying crabs is a fairly straightforward proposition - if you know what you want. Below are a few tips about what to expect and what to look for when buying crabs: • Specify gender: Crab gender is easy to distinguish: male crabs (or "jimmies") have a narrow, T-shaped "apron" on the back of their shell, while female crabs ("sooks") have a wide apron. In addition, live females have red-tipped claws, while male claws are blue. While both can be eaten, limits have been set this year on the number of females crabbers can catch.

Bad Press: The Worst Critical Reviews Ever, edited by Laura Ward (Barrons, 256 pages, $14.95). One of the great natural unfairnesses of life is that unkind reviews of books, plays, music -- whatever -- and especially vicious ones live on in memory and anthologies while favorable ones die young. Here, Ms. Wood, an irrepressible enthusiast for aesthetic savagery, has compiled a magnificent compendium of dismissals. Among my favorites: "The triumph of sugar over diabetes" -- George Jean Nathan on the writing of J.M. Barrie.

Leonard's Waterside, formerly Pier 500.I was here as a reviewer only two years ago; but now the place has a new name, a new owner (a partnership led by J. Leonard Schleider, owner of Cameo Caterers) and a new upscale American menu. There's even a new motto: "Fine Dining in a Casual Way." That means you can stop in after the ballgame for tournedos Atlantis with Madeira demi-glace.I'm not unhappy about being here again, because this is a wonderful setting for a restaurant.

A local charity will benefit from the beer-making skills of Vincent and Suzanne Powers, winners of the second annual H.E.R.O Homebrew contest run by the DuClaw Brewing Company. The Nottingham residents won the contest with their Chocolate Chipotle Stout, beating 54 other home-brewed offerings. The beer will be made by DuClaw and sold in the chain's brewpubs and at retail locations. Proceeds will go to a charity that will be chosen at the end of June or the beginning of July. "We're open to suggestions," said Dave Benfield, CEO of the Maryland craft brewing company, founded in 1996.

DuClaw Brewing Company is still negotiating to purchase a 167,000-square-foot warehouse in Harford County for a future brewery, the company's president and the site's broker said Tuesday, a project that could make the brewer a major player in the regional craft beer market. Though an original deal fell through, Dave Benfield, the craft brewer's president, is bullish on the project, contrary to an early published report in a local trade. "I'm extremely confident we'll be producing beer starting in 2013 out of the new facility," he said.

SHE HOLDS on to my neck as though I were a tree rooted at the edge of a cliff, the very edge of the world, beyond which lies the shadowy realm of things that go bump in the nightmares of children. Four years old, she has been through enough to feed the night-time beasts of old men. The Howard County shelter where I work and she lives with her grandmother offers warmth and food and a place to play. She goes to a good day-care center, where she has begun to exercise the intelligence hidden behind her stammer.

Soft-shell crabs are Rick Baxter's livelihood. His family-owned company, Baxter Soft-shell Crabs, on the Eastern Shore, supplies the seasonal delicacy to restaurants in Maryland, Washington and Virginia. It follows that soft-shell crabs would be a family staple. But even in the Baxter home, soft-shell crabs were an acquired taste. "What my wife did the first time to get our kids to eat them, she cut them up in small pieces, dipped them in tempura mix. She fried them and put a plateful on the table," says Baxter, whose children are 10, 11 and 13. "In 10 minutes, they were dipping them in ketchup and eating them like french fries," he says.

The loss dropped Towson to 0-12 and was the Tigers' 31st in a row. The record for consecutive losses by a Division I team is 34, by Sacramento State. The overall record is 51 straight by New Jersey Institute of Technology as it transitioned from Division II to Division I. Apfeld made all 11 of his shots from the field, including his only 3-point field goal attempt.

Remember the Maryland crab cake? It no longer exists. It has been replaced, in the hearts and appetites of Baltimore restaurant diners, by a thing called the jumbo lump crab cake. Tastes change. The crab cake once was a humble second-day meal, composed of the gleanings of a crab feast - flavorful claw meat and, if you were lucky, unbroken pieces of backfin. The restaurant crab cake of today, almost without exception, is made with jumbo lump, a packing category that didn't even exist a few generations ago. And there's another major difference: In the old days, the crab cake served in Baltimore restaurants was made from Maryland crab meat.
