Whether it's a Sunday night football game or the third Saturday in May at Pimlico, when NBC Sports floods the zone with members of its A-Team, the telecast is almost always a winner. That was again the case for the 138th Preakness Stakes -- thanks to airtight production, sure-handed direction and enough talent to cover three or four races. Sure, the NBC analysts were wrong in picking Kentucky Derby victor Orb (or, in the case of Michelle Beadle, Mylute) to win the Preakness. But did anyone on the planet have Oxbow?

ANAHEIM, Calif. - -The Orioles officially hit the midpoint of the 2009 season Saturday night with a defeat that could serve as a microcosm of a first half filled with frustrating losses. There was the blown four-run lead, the failure of a rookie starter to get deep into the game and a slew of defensive miscues that simply cannot happen for a team expecting to win anywhere, nevermind in the home ballpark of one of baseball's better teams. Orioles veteran second baseman Brian Roberts contributed to the Los Angeles Angels' three-run fifth inning with a key error.

Baltimore County police were in a standoff last night at a Randallstown house with a Jamaican man being sought by federal authorities for missing a deportation hearing. Tactical unit officers surrounded the house in the 800 block of Falcon Ridge Drive where Hubert Downer, 38, of no fixed address was believed to be hiding. Police said Downer has served nine years for federal drug and weapons charges in four states, including Maryland. Police were uncertain of the date of Downer's hearing.

At 10:30 on a Sunday night in May, it's hard to spot 42-year-old quadriplegic Alan Downer as he steers his battery-powered wheelchair 3 1/2 miles home from church along a desolate curve of Hollins Ferry Road in Southwest Baltimore. Downer has made this trip almost two dozen times but it still unnerves him: He must cross five sets of railroad tracks, face dogs that chase him, go through dangerous neighborhoods. He first drummed up the courage to wheel himself to his West Baltimore home four years ago. He figured it was better than sitting helplessly and having his mother worry.

Delaware bounced back from an opening-game loss to Loyola by beating Rutgers on Saturday behind three second-half goals from junior midfielder Brad Downer (Annapolis).

Second-grader Shakira Rawles has fled the circle with a whimper, her lip busted accidentally by an overly animated classmate at the combined Bay-Brook Elementary School and Harbor View School in Brooklyn. Now, just seven students sit on the blue rug, eyes fixed on music teacher Rebecca Ludwig as she leads them in singing an old sailor song. While Shakira pouts and dabs at her mouth, Vicki Downer, a visiting teacher from Baltimore's Peabody Preparatory, whispers comfort into the girl's ear. She assures her she'll be fine, compliments her singing and gently prods her to rejoin the group soon.

WASHINGTON - The government plans to close a loophole in meat inspection rules that led to the record recall of 143 million pounds of ground beef this year, Agriculture Secretary Ed Schafer said yesterday. The U.S. Department of Agriculture will bar meat plants from slaughtering any cow that can't stand and walk on its own at any point after it arrives at a plant, said Schafer. The rule would eliminate existing provisions that allow meat plants to send sick, or "downer," cows to slaughter if they fall ill after passing an initial inspection and subsequently pass a second inspection.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- In seemingly no time at all, the 2008 Orioles had gone from a mere afterthought to one of the most surprising stories through baseball's first week. The transformation, accomplished with six straight wins that earned them the best record in the major leagues, was a result of an opportunistic offense, solid pitching and surehanded defense. However, in a span of six grueling hours yesterday on the field at Rangers Ballpark, those elements mostly abandoned the Orioles and the result was a momentum-killing doubleheader sweep at the hands of the Texas Rangers.

Alittle over five months ago, one day before the Maryland men's basketball team began practicing for the 2006-07 season, a freshman sat at a table and met with reporters for the first time. He'd learned English only a couple of years before, but perfectly articulated the biggest challenge his new team faced. "Our main goal is to change things here," said Greivis Vasquez, a native of Caracas, Venezuela, 19 years old at the time, "to try to make people see Maryland in a different way." The easiest way to assess the relative success of an athletic season is to judge the postseason accomplishments against the preseason goals.

WASHINGTON - The discovery of mad cow disease in a Washington state Holstein - confirmed yesterday by British veterinary pathologists - has focused new attention on whether animals too disabled to walk to slaughter should be banned from the U.S. food supply. The animal that was tested had been flagged in the first place because it had been partially paralyzed, apparently after complications in delivering a calf, said W. Ron DeHaven, the Department of Agriculture's chief veterinarian. The cow came from a dairy farm, where its career as a milk producer was over.
