Dream Team coach Rick Faby was warned that it was going to be difficult to compete in the Presidents Cup Lightning indoor tournament for 9-10 girls in Hampstead. As it turned out, their rivals in the tourney were the ones to be fearful of the Dream Team - a group of Lutherville and Reisterstown neighborhood friends coached by Faby and Dan Hammerschlag. The Dream Team waltzed through the tourney bracket, steamrolling Valley Girls, Red Shirts, Valley Girls 2 and South Carroll before beating Severna Park's Flash, 8-4, in the championship.

Letter writer Thomas F. McDonough has it all wrong ("Social Security boondoggle proves conservatives' point," July 29). Not so long ago, the Social Security Administration was faced with a similar programming embarrassment. There was a scandal involving losing people's records. What was happening was that each of the national programming centers and the headquarters here in Maryland had their own individual tracking systems that worked by reading a punch card kept in a pocket in the file at each location the file passed through.

Could an Olympian ideal lie within the "Dream Team" after all?When it was announced three years ago that professional basketball players would be allowed to compete in the Olympics, some sports fans were outraged at the thought. The modern Olympics -- in theory at least -- had been a showcase for amateur athletes, particularly for the Americans.Who had heard of Mary Lou Retton, Peggy Fleming, Cassius Clay before their dazzling feats in the games? The quadrennial worldwide spectacle continued to captivate us because it made heroes of people of whom we'd never heard before; these athletes trained dawn-to-dusk for years in anonymity for a moment in time when the pressure upon them was so great we spectators even felt the tremors deep in ourselves.

This week, the designers were brought to Spin, a ping pong social club owned by Susan Sarandon. The challenge is for each team (same teams) to design five looks for the employees of Spin. Three for female servers, one for a male server, and one for a ball boy (the poor guy who has to run around Spin and pick up stray balls). I'm gonna spoil it for you right now: YES, lots of balls jokes are made. No, none of them are particularly good. Dream Team is confident with Platinum Aussie saying "I'm a natural born leader" again.

As an NBA assistant coach since retiring after a Hall of Fame career, Patrick Ewing might have a better seat than many of his contemporaries to compare this year's U.S. Olympic men's basketball team to the fabled Dream Team of 20 years ago. Ewing was one of 11 Hall of Famers on that team and played in the shadow of Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and even Charles Barkley in Barcelona. But Ewing doesn't't think the current team led by LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant could compete for one simple reason.

Ask Sacramento Kings guard Mitch Richmond about his bronze medal from the 1988 Summer Olympics, and he'd say he has no idea what it looks like. He's not proud that the United States failed to win a gold medal that year, as everyone had expected."

TORONTO -- Its previous two games were 50-point romps, contests in which members of the Dream Team II pretty much had their way against teams seemingly more than happy to oblige.But last night at the World Championship of Basketball, the Dream Team got pretty much what it expected against Russia -- a team that just would not quit.For a half, Russia played pretty much even against the group of NBA stars, trailing by just eight points with slim hopes of believing the impossible. But in the second half the Dream Team, behind the play of Shaquille O'Neal and Joe Dumars, wore the Russian team down in a 111-94 win before 27,000 at SkyDome.

"Project Runway" Season 11 began last night, and first of all, I'd like to say the return of Heidi Klum is such a relief after an entire season of watching Angela Lindvall, who has all the charisma of hand sanitizer. I've grown to enjoy Joanna Coles, but she is no Tim Gunn. So, welcome back to the normal "Project Runway. "   The season begins with Heidi and Tim announcing that this season will be "Project Runway: Teams. " I guess I spoke too soon when I said welcome back to normal "Project Runway," guess we needed a gimmick.

The debate raging these days between those arguing whether this year's U.S. Olympic men's basketball team could compete with the Dream Team of 20 years ago is not answered simply by a generational divide. I for one, being of sound mind and slightly broken-down body, believe the 2012 version is not being given the respect it deserves before it ever steps on a court in London. I also think the 1992 team was not quite as invincible as they were made out to be because the international game was far from what it is today.

A-Rod. K-Rod. F-Rod. I-Rod. B-Rob. We are not living in the Golden Age of sports nicknames. J-Roll. O-Dog. T-Mac. D-Wade. These are not nicknames; they're contractions, abbreviations. Crowned "King James" at the outset of a career that has yet to see him win a championship, Lebron James was dubbed so because that version of the Bible is common parlance. It had - and has, given that he's ruled nothing yet in the NBA - no relevance. Mr. James might as well be nicknamed "Vulgate.

It would be cliché to say the NFL's self-proclaimed Dream Team turned the Ravens' preseason opener into a nightmare. But the Philadelphia Eagles certainly exploited enough areas to cause some worries when the Ravens go to sleep tonight. The Ravens' 13-6 loss before an announced crowd of 69,144 at Lincoln Financial Field will increase concerns that the team needs to add an experienced wide receiver, a proven right tackle and backup quarterback. All three sacks in the first half were allowed by the Ravens' offensive tackles, and the number of times that Michael Oher, Oniel Cousins and Jah Reid were beaten doubled that amount.

At the threshold of Susan Skiles' Carroll County home, a sweet aroma wafting from the kitchen almost always greets visitors. She loves to bake, and just about any tasty treat imaginable may pop from her oven at any given time. However, there is more to this engaging greeting than the act of baking. "A house is a reflection of your personality," said the petite 59-year-old, who sells fire protection equipment. "People are going to remember if they were welcomed and warmed."

On a recent, warmer-than-usual Friday, Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally stand by a dock in Harbor East, while a photographer tries to frame the easily distracted duo. Legrand, constantly moving her long hair to the side, squints in the sun, and a hooded Scally calls to mallards wading by. It’s lunchtime, and a trio of men dressed in business-casual notice the shoot as they walk along Lancaster Street. "That's that band," a man says. "What's their name?" The others don’t know.
