Remember the Krispy Kreme craze of the 1990s? Maryland got its first Krispy Kreme store in 1998, and you'd have thought they were giving away Cronuts. There were hundreds of people in line on a Tuesday morning in November, when the first Baltimore-area shop opened on Belair Road in Fullerton. The fame of Krispy Kreme had spread fast and wide after the Winston-Salem, N.C.-based doughnut company began offering franchises in 1995. Before then, the melt-in-your-mouth doughnuts had enjoyed only regional fame.

Think for a second about postseason heroes in Orioles history. Once you move past the Brooks Robinsons, Frank Robinsons, and Rick Dempseys of franchise lore, there's another pantheon reserved for guys who will never end up in the club's Hall of Fame, but provided a moment of excellence in October so crucial, so memorable that they should never ever have to buy a beer in town again. Move over Moe Drabowsky, Tito Landrum and Jeff Reboulet. Delmon Young has just joined your ranks.

John-John Williams IV has a story in Wednesday's Taste section about the revival of the formal afternoon tea tradition. Afternoon tea is not to be confused with high tea. Afternoon tea has various applications in England, depending on class. But let's say that there is the domestic version, performed in households, and the institutional version, performed in fancy hotels. That version let's call formal afternoon tea. It's that version that's the focus of Williams' story . The tradition comes and goes in Baltimore.

Archbishop Spalding girls soccer coach Ashly Kennedy was not immediately certain who scored the go-ahead goal against Severn on Wednesday. By the time Sarah Ensor was identified as the goal's author, the No. 8 Cavaliers had won their 15th straight regular season game in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference against teams other than McDonogh. Spalding fought back from a late deficit and scored two goals in the final 13 minutes to knock off the No. 3 Admirals, 2-1. "The energy was the game-changer in today's game," Spalding coach Ashly Kennedy said.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Former All-Star center Alonzo Mourning will attempt a comeback next season after being forced to retire from the NBA earlier this season because of a kidney transplant, a member of the New Jersey Nets' organization said last night. Mourning played in only 12 games after signing a four-year, $22 million free-agent contract. He appeared in his final game Nov. 22 and underwent a transplant on Dec. 19. He returned to the bench occasionally late in the season and joined the team on the road for the first time in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Jim Palmer's latest comeback attempt apparently isn't a comeback at all. Palmer said yesterday that "there is no truth" to a report in Tuesday's Denver Post that he seriously is considering resuming his major-league baseball career.But then he repeated many of the things he told the Post reporter."I just told him I was going to throw. You never know. I may play in the Senior [Professional Baseball]League. Why? Because it's something to do."Palmer, 45, hasn't pitched in a major-league game since May 1984, when the Baltimore Orioles released him. But he often has spoken of trying to resurrect his 19-year career.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The "other" comeback is coming along quite nicely, even if left-hander Mike Flanagan isn't getting quite the same kind of attention that routinely has been paid to past and present teammate Jim Palmer.Flanagan made an impressive 1991 exhibition debut yesterday, bucking a stiff wind to pitch three scoreless innings in the Baltimore Orioles' 6-3 victory in 10 innings over the New York Yankees at Fort Lauderdale Stadium, but he wasn't ready to proclaim his comeback a success quite yet."

The Race of My Life Hermann Maier with Knut Okresek Velo Press/320 pages Recently translated from German and published in the United States, The Race of My Life is the story of Hermann Maier's long, painful comeback from a motorcycle accident that nearly ended his skiing career at its peak in 2001. What is truly illuminating about the Herminator's story is that it's a warts-and-all tale. It's not like Maier always knew he'd make it back. Like any human who has his livelihood suddenly snatched away from him, Maier at times lashed out, threw things in anger and wanted to give up. And then he went back to work with the determination of a champion.

ARE YOU discouraged about the recent poor performance of your stocks? Cheer up.

The article quotes Larry Folmar, chief investment officer of Folmar Group, a Michigan-based advisory firm: "Technology stocks are poised for a comeback, and at these prices everyone should buy back a significant position.

SEATTLE -- The most storied comeback team in college basketball history couldn't come back last night. The Most Outstanding Player in the 1993 Final Four couldn't hit the biggest shot of his career.This time, North Carolina is going home empty, having lost to defending national champion Arkansas, 75-68, in the second NCAA tournament semifinal game at the Kingdome. This time, Donald Williams is not going home the hero.It appeared as if the Tar Heels, whose come-from-way-behind victories are the stuff of legend for their fans and heartaches for their opponents in the Atlantic Coast Conference, would add to their legacy with Williams as one of the heroes.

IRVINE, Calif. - Though he has swum four meets since his return to competition, Michael Phelps will gain a truer gauge of his form this week at U.S. Nationals. The event, which begins Wednesday and runs through Sunday, will bring together the nation's best swimmers as they vie for spots in the 2015 FINA World Championships in Kazan, Russia. Analysts will have their eyes on Phelps, not only to see how he fares against world-class competition but to glean a hint of which events he hopes to swim at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Aqua Sphere CEO Don Rockwell says he had no idea that Michael Phelps , the most decorated Olympic athlete of all time, would come out of retirement when the swimming equipment manufacturer sought earlier this year to partner with him. Talk about added value. "We would have been happy to have him" even if Phelps had not created a massive buzz in the sport by returning to competitive swimming, Rockwell said Tuesday. Phelps will compete in the U.S. Swimming Championships beginning Wednesday in Irvine, Calif.

With today's opening of a 15-screen Cinemark theater in Towson, Baltimore and its immediate area - that is, within the Beltway - is home to nearly 60 movie screens. And 20 of those are in the city itself. That's not bad when one considers that as recently as 12 years ago, there were exactly two movie theaters, with six screens, operating within city limits. Industry analysts say that growth suggests big movie chains such as Cinemark, Landmark and Cobb, all of which have or are planning theaters in the area, believe that Baltimore's moviegoers want to see more movies in more modern theaters and that the local economy is strong enough to support the additional screens.

BOSTON - Midway through the nightcap of their twin bill against the Red Sox on Saturday, the Orioles were in danger of dropping the doubleheader and losing their hold on first place in the American League East. But after a 7-4 win over the Red Sox in which the Orioles came from behind to score five unanswered runs and shut down Boston with 5 1/3 strong innings from the bullpen, the music blasted inside the visiting clubhouse at Fenway Park. Earning a split of their day-night doubleheader was, in a way, a victory.

BETHESDA -  Before Tiger Woods committed last week to playing in the Quicken Loans National, many figured that Congressional Country Club would look and feel very much like it did last year, when the absence of the world's former No. 1 player offered plenty of elbow room. It could be that way again this weekend. The crowds and major-championship buzz that followed the game's biggest draw through the first two rounds likely will disappear now that Woods, looking older than 38 and trying to find his game after being sidelined more than three months after back surgery, has missed the cut. Coming into Friday's second round at 3-over-par, mostly the result of poor first-round putting, Woods struggled in all facets of his game, shooting a 4-over 75. His two-day total of 7-over-par 149 was 13 shots off the lead and four strokes off the cut line.

Back this hitch up into the water Untie all the cables and rope Step onto the astro turf Get yourself a coozie Let's go…. Long before the pop-country group Little Big Town introduced its No. 1 hit, "Pontoon," last summer, pontooning had become been a part of the boating community in the United States. Its roots go back more than 60 years to a Minnesota farmer named Ambrose Weeres who came up with the crazy idea of putting a wooden platform on two columns of welded steel barrels and spending his lazy summer afternoons fishing on a nearby lake.

I had a pretty frustrating hockey game last night but couldn't get through my cage to bite anyone. I'm not really sure I would have, anyway. This is the Coffee Companion, where we recap the local sports headlines from yesterday. - The Orioles couldn't complete a second straight ninth-inning comeback last night in a 4-2 loss to the Chicago White So x . T.J. McFarland saved the bullpen, but the team didn't have the bench depth it needed to complete the comeback. - Peter Schmuck feels like the team has defied explanation this year . - It was a big day for Manny Machado, who unveiled his salsa line at the Pikesville Giant and learned that he'd have the appeal for his suspension for his wild weekend against Oakland.

Chris Davis' ninth-inning heroics Monday night masked the reality of just how bad the Orioles had been with runners in scoring position in that game. Their offense Tuesday wasn't afforded a similar bailout -- although it came close -- in a 4-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox before an announced 20,596 at Camden Yards. Despite having ample opportunities, the Orioles were hitless in seven at-bats with runners in scoring position Tuesday against White Sox left-handed starter Jose Quintana, and 1-for-9 overall.
