Not that The Crease has official landmark status or anything, but this Towson restaurant-bar was the Ur-Yup bar when it opened in 1972. While there's no denying that the local courthouse, public library and nearby university gave some daytime value to the community, the night belonged to The Crease.So imagine the shock waves that rumbled through the Baltimore County seat when The Crease was shut down by the Internal Revenue Service for non-payment of back taxes last April. Was this yet another sign that the upscale '80s had truly ended?

Washington College's starting attack of senior Jim Cusick, freshman Owen Evans and junior Sam Birnbaum has combined for eight goals and five assists in the team's 2-0 start, but the unit has encountered its fair share of hurdles. After opening several eyes with a two-goal, three-assist performance in a 16-7 rout of Goucher on Feb. 22, Evans was shut out in Saturday's 15-8 walloping of then-No. 15 Washington and Lee. Birnbaum scored his first goal of the season for the Shoremen - who moved from No. 8 to No. 7 in the latest United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll - against the Generals, but that was it. With senior J.D. Campbell (three goals and two assists in 2014)

As a child, I would sometimes pull my right eyelid up, bunch it together and hold it in place. It wasn't until I'd been doing that subconsciously for years that I realized my looks weren't going to change. No matter what I did, I'd always have an eyelid with a crease on my left and a flat lid on the right. Which wasn't the end of the world, I knew. Still, the beautiful women I saw on magazine covers and TV shows, from Cindy Crawford to Lisa Bonet on The Cosby Show, all had gorgeous large eyes.

Friday's editions included a Q&A with Johns Hopkins sophomore attackman Wells Stanwick. Due to space constraints, here are some more answers from the Baltimore native and Boys' Latin graduate that did not make the cut. How does it feel to be the quarterback of the offense from behind the net? It's definitely something that I've always wanted to do. It's just kind of the position that I play. You always want to control the game from there, and I'm trying to get better at it. I'm probably not exactly there yet, and I'm working on it and trying to be more of a leader on the offensive end as the year goes on and into next year.

Generally, an empty dining room is not a good sign. So when my friends and I showed up at the Crease in Towson, a venerable bar catering to college grads and businesspeople, we were a little worried. At 7 p.m., there was no one in either of the two dining rooms.I wondered if I had been horribly misinformed. Food, I thought, could not possibly be the reason to come to this handsome, time-seasoned, brick and mahogany bar, where the wide-plank floors have been worn down over the years by beer-quaffing crowds.

Q I have noticed between-season dressing mentioned in newspaper ads. What exactly does that mean? It sounds very limited. Could you give a few examples?A: "Between-seasons" does not mean four more seasons' worth of clothing. It simply means working one season's clothing into that of another. In this way you are prepared for unseasonable weather.It has never been considered "savvy" to wear summer clothes -- madras or cotton ties, linen jackets, straw hats, or white anything -- after Labor Day. As we head toward late summer, stylish fashion buffs begin inserting items of fall clothing into their wardrobes to help span the seasons.

Zoe Stukenberg's versatile play in the midfield has been one of the keys to Marriott's Ridge's emergence as a girls lacrosse power. The senior helped the Mustangs win their first state title two years ago and had an All-Metro season last spring with 67 goals and 27 assists. Also a soccer and basketball player, Stukenberg led the No. 11 Mustangs to a 19-2 win over Atholton in Thursday's season opener. She scored four goals and added two assists. After years of playing with the M&D Lacrosse club, she now coaches and referees the sport for younger girls.

VENUE With cheap beer, traditional pub food and a laid-back attitude, The Crease is a good place to chill out if you're not into the club scene. Where -- 523 York Road, Towson Call -- 410-823-0395 Notable -- This longtime Towson staple is a popular late-night hangout for college students. It is one of many affordable drinking spots in downtown Towson. Vibe -- The atmosphere is that of your typical hole-in-the-wall pub, with dark lighting, a dank feel and lots of wood. It's easy to blend into the background if you choose, but with three bars and plenty of space, you won't feel as claustrophobic.

LANDOVER -- Washington goaltender Jim Carey had the best seat in the house. Right there on the ice, in the crease. And he stood there, tall, strong, stick and glove at the ready.Occasionally, he'd point to a teammate, run his stick blade around the border of his crease, or straighten his helmet.If he had yawned -- or set up a lemonade stand -- no one would have noticed, until the closing moments, anyway, when the Florida Panthers applied some heat.But Carey didn't flinch and skated off the ice with a 3-0 victory last night and the fourth shutout of his young career.

1. Can the Blue Jays do it again? Johns Hopkins went through a painful, 17-year drought, which included losses in the 1989 and 2003 NCAA title games and eight other missteps in the national tournament's semifinal round, before winning it all last season and going undefeated in the process. Then, the Blue Jays said goodbye to a senior class that lost just six games in four seasons. Will Hopkins fans have to wait another generation for the next Memorial Day celebration? Or did the 2005 Blue Jays start a run of a different kind?

Sometimes a lacrosse goalie just has to guess what an attacker on the crease plans to do. Yesterday, Towson's Laura Shane guessed correctly at just the right time. With 23 seconds left, Shane stepped to the edge of the crease and snuffed Dulaney's Kristen Horseman just as the freshman shot. Shane got the ball and the visiting Generals got an 11-9 upset over No. 13 Dulaney. The Stanford-bound senior, who finished with 16 saves, made several terrific stops and her accurate clears often sparked the Generals' outstanding transition game.
