PHOENIX - After the Orioles' 14-inning loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday evening, the visiting clubhouse at Chase Field was eerily quiet, the clang of wooden bats being packed and equipment trunk wheels rolling on carpet were the only sounds to break the tension. The Orioles arrived in Arizona having won four of five on the first two legs of their interleague road trip to the West Coast, but they left the desert with far more questions than answers following their third straight walk-off loss to the Diamondbacks.

When MTV turns 25 today, the original cable music channel will be older than the oldest person in one of its prime target audiences: viewers ages 12 to 24. MTV President Christina Norman doesn't put much stock in this tidbit. "It only means something to you guys," she said in an interview last week - "you guys" being the scribes observing MTV's birthday. On TV MTV's programming from Aug. 1, 1981, airs all day today on VH1 Classic.

A day after Jim Johnson blew his eighth save of the season in the Orioles' 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks, manager Buck Showalter is still standing by his closer. Asked today whether Francisco Rodriguez could get some save opportunities down the stretch, Showalter definitively said, “I don't foresee that.” The Orioles have three off days -- including tomorrow -- over their next 12 days, but then finish the season with 33 games over 34 days, so how Showalter uses the bullpen will be critical down the stretch.

At the end of the day today, Maryland taxpayers will have shelled out roughly $43,000 to finance the special General Assembly session. Every day the House and Senate meet after today will add, on average, an additional $6,500 to the cost.That may not seem like much, but $43,000 could be two state jobs, and the $6,500 a day tab could provide annual grants for two to three General Public Assistance recipients. Certainly it's worth the cost if lawmakers can come up with $450 million to balance the budget.

Maryland coach Randy Edsall said he hopes to make a decision within the next several days on which quarterback will back up starter C.J. Brown. Brown remained on the sidelines today so that Edsall could evaluate Caleb Rowe, Ricardo Young and Perry Hills. “I wanted to see Ricardo, Perry and Caleb because I have no idea right now who is our No. 2 quarterback,” the coach said. “Nobody has really separated themselves, so I thought it would be a good day today just to get those guys involved with the first unit.

Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel, who returned to the club Sunday after two days away with a stomach virus, said he is doubtful he will be able to make his scheduled start Monday against the Tigers in Detroit. Manager Buck Showalter said a decision on who will start that game will be made after Sunday's series finale against Boston. “He feels obviously a lot better than he did,” Showalter said. “We've got some things in place. A lot depends on how we get throw the day today, so we've got two or three ways to go. There's a potential for us to give him an extra day and push him to Tuesday, but we could pitch him tomorrow.

We're sitting in our office the other day when an e-mail arrives from the New Museum in New York informing us of an upcoming exhibit of still photographs by Baltimore's own filmmaker, John Waters. The message informs us that the exhibition opens Feb. 7 - today - coinciding with John Waters Day in Baltimore. Hmmm, we think, it's gratifying to share the work of a favorite son with the rest of the world, but what's this about a John Waters Day? We have one of those? Just as we begin pulling out our calendars to see if we've overlooked a chance to celebrate something, another e-mail arrives.

Rainy days at the beach are a bummer - if you let them be. There are still some fun, indoor, things to do with the family when dark clouds hover over the shore. Here are a couple good places to go, perfect for days like today. Indoor mini-golf. An Ocean City staple, moved indoors. Old Pro Golf has two indoor locations in town. The uptown location at 136th St. has an indoor course with a safari theme. The location on 68th St. is underwater themed and packed with sea creatures.
