As expected, it's all Michael all the time around here these days. With so much bling around his neck, the Incredible Phelps looms now as the most accomplished - if not the greatest - athlete to ever come out of Maryland, and if medals are the measure, he's the greatest Olympian ever. Someday, in Baltimore, there will be a new aquatic center named for him - hopefully in the lower level of the new downtown arena - with a magnificent, life-size bronze of MP in Speedo at the entrance. We should all savor this for as long as possible.

David Collins was in the other nose bleed seats - not the ones high in the upper deck at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, but the ones behind the dug-outs where foul balls on rare occasion have changed the complexion of a fan's face. In the time it takes to holler "duck," a foul ball at an Orioles game last month rearranged the nose and work schedule of Collins, a reporter for WBAL-TV who, for a change of pace, became a story. Collins was fortunate the ball off the bat of Oriole Nick Markakis didn't directly smack his schnozz at a July 29 game between the Orioles and Chicago White Sox. If you make your living on television (or even if you don't)

Dave Collins relies on rich imagery to paint a picture for those who aren't there to see for themselves.The play-by-play announcer and public relations director for the Class AA Bowie Baysox baseball team, which is playing its home games at Memorial Stadium this season, Mr. Collins uses strong adjectives to make absent fans feel as if they're sitting in the stands.A lively fastball becomes a "popping fastball," and a hard line drive to the third baseman a "rocket out to third base.""Vocabulary is very, very important," says Mr. Collins, who moved to Glen Burnie from Hagerstown last September.

WJZ and WBAL dominated early coverage of the breaking news of Mayor Sheila Dixon's midday conviction Tuesday, and that is not surprising, because they are the only stations in town with noon newscasts. By the time WMAR got to its 5 p.m. newscast with Mary Beth Marsden at the anchor desk, its coverage had a coherence and focus that it had lacked earlier in the day. And WBFF seemed to be in control of the story even though it offered less initially than Baltimore's two leading news stations.
