University of Maryland architecture student Duncan Graham had a goal this summer: to explore the country from coast to coast. But after recruiting three friends to ride their bikes from San Francisco to Ocean City, they decided two months in the saddle should generate more than a sore backside. The group, all touched by cancer in some way, decided to raise money for cyclist Lance Armstrong's Live Strong Foundation — and they've produced more than a dollar for every one of the 3,000-plus miles along their route.

- Their game, their gold - but the Olympic hockey finale between Canada and the United States belonged to history before the roars triggered by Sidney Crosby's overtime goal had faded by so much as a decibel Sunday. Crosby, whose silence the past two games had led an entire nation to brood, took a pass from Jarome Iginla and rifled a shot through the legs of U.S. goaltender Ryan Miller 7 minutes, 40 seconds into overtime, giving Canada a 3-2 victory in the last event of perhaps the last Olympic tournament that will include NHL players.

WASHINGTON - It's enough to give an actor whiplash, going from Michael Lee, the hardened, tragically street-smart Baltimore teen at the center of Season 4 of HBO's The Wire, to Dixon Wilson, adopted son of rich Beverly Hills parents on the CW's 90210. But Tristan Wilds shrugs it off as no big deal. Acting is something he's good at, and playing characters who seem polar opposites is just part of the deal. Besides, he says, Michael and Dixon aren't as dissimilar as they at first appear. "It's weird," says the 19-year-old actor, dressed all in black and sitting in a Georgetown hotel room.

When the term "coast to coast" was mentioned in past seasons regarding the Bayhawks, it usually meant a crisp outlet pass from goalkeeper Greg Cattrano, a clearing run by a talented midfielder, then a feed on the break to attackmen Mark Millon or Tom Marechek for a quick-striking goal. But this spring, a major element in that formula has changed and coast to coast has taken on a new dimension in the team's vocabulary. Cattrano, the team's starting goalie for every game in the Bayhawks' three-year history, will no longer be protecting the cage.

The fouls were piling up, and referees at the Centennial-Oakland Mills high school football game had seen enough. So with the score at 44-0 and Centennial leading, they called the game in the third quarter, rather than risk injury - or a brawl by fans and players. Days later, school system officials are still investigating what happened in a county with a new civility policy that frowns on bad behavior among students, staff, and parents during and after school. For Centennial, last Friday's win came after several quarters of excessive fouls - some of them personal fouls - which some witnesses said seemed mostly to be coming from the losing side, a team that has been on the decline in recent years.

Never having ridden more than 15 miles at a time, the Johns Hopkins University sophomore from New York City admitted to moments of trepidation as she envisioned the heat and the hills that awaited her. Beck, however, was able to draw strength from the success of others.
