Three years ago, Senior Airman Gideon Connelly decided to have his left leg amputated below the knee. On Thursday, Connelly ran the 200-meter dash in 29.4 seconds. The 25-year-old Dundalk resident was one of 200-plus participants to compete in last week's Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, an adaptive-sports competition founded in 2010 for wounded or ill service members and veterans like Connelly, whose recovery from a 2011 motorcycle accident trumps anything he has done in the wake of it. "It's great watching these wounded warriors get together to compete for all these medals," Connelly said.

Apparently, New Year's Eve is high time in restaurants for the old dine and dash. That's what industry types call the ugly, ugly practice of deliberately walking out on a check. The dine and dash tends to show up on New Year's Eve, especially at restaurants that are close to good vantage points for watching fireworks. Unlike a typical evening when tables finish up one at a time, diners New Year's Eve at these restaurants all want their checks at the same time, just around 11:40 p.m. Bad, bad people depend on the ensuing confusion.

Bill Donovan no longer has to worry about his horse missing the Preakness field for want of enough earnings."We're in, definitely," the trainer of Dash For Dotty said yesterday morning. "I knew it when they brought over my Preakness jackets."Finally, Dash For Dotty is getting some good fortune after a disappointment in the Blue Grass Stakes and a controversy that kept the gelding out of the Federico Tesio Stakes at Pimlico Race Course, the major prep for the Preakness.Donovan could find easier pickings on the 3-year-old schedule, but the horse's owner, Henry Rosenberg Jr., chairman of the board of Crown Central Petroleum, wanted to take a shot at his hometown's biggest race.

If he ran any faster, he'd be a jaguar."The stout bay colt is the second choice today in a bulky 11-horse field for the Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash.

Now, the real fun starts. It's a mad, mad dash to the June 24 gubernatorial primary as the many undecided, unimpressed Democrats try to answer a what's-worse question that goes like this: What's worse, a lieutenant governor (Anthony Brown) who "squibbed the kickoff" of Obamacare or an attorney general (Doug Gansler) who did nothing about a beach-house party where teenagers appeared to be drinking alcoholic beverages? There's another question: Is Heather Mizeur too liberal to have any chance of beating the Republican candidate in November?

The peril of high expectations, in sports as in politics, was emphatically driven home Sunday to millions who watched the Denver Broncos' and Peyton Manning's performance in the Super Bowl. The premature anointment of Mr. Manning as the greatest quarterback of all time went a-glimmering as he and his teammates were humiliated by the Seattle Seahawks in a 43-8 pasting. Not only were Mr. Manning fans disappointed, but relatively neutral rooters were as well. They were led to expect one of the closest Super Bowls in the event's 48-year history, between the top-rated offensive and defensive teams in the National Football League.

If you are looking to drop pounds, the DASH diet is probably your best choice and Paleo your worst, according to rankings by U.S. News and World Report. The magazine lauded the DASH diet, which was created to fight hypertension, as being easy to follow and safe and nutritious. The Paleo diet says people should eat like cavemen with meals that include very pure meats and wild plants. Sounds good on paper, experts hired by U.S. News & World Report said, but the diet is hard to follow.
