JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Here is a summary of one of the Ravens' scoring drives last night: four plays, minus-1 yard, elapsed time of 1 minute and 35 seconds. That one ended with a 33-yard field goal from Matt Stover. Here was another: three plays, minus-3 yards, elapsed time of 1:11, which resulted in a 24-yard field goal.

Runners at the corners. Tying run at the plate. Two outs, bottom of the ninth. Lefty tugs at his cap. He wipes his brow. Now he's back on the rubber -- looks for the sign, shakes one off. Oh, he steps off. There's gonna be a conference now. Oh-oh. Here comes the Skipper now, too. He's looking toward the bullpen. He's not motioning yet. . . . They're gonna talk about it. Now the umpire is coming out to break it up. Skip's gonna leave him in there! No, wait! He's motioning to the bullpen. He wants the right-hander.

All you really need to know about the Orioles' 14-inning, 5-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday night is that it was the longest game in the brief history of Camden Yards.The rest might be savored by trivia buffs, but much of what happened before Harold Reynolds delivered the game-winning sacrifice fly will be quickly forgotten.Suffice it to say that before the game ended -- five hours and 34 minutes after it started -- more than half the pitchers on the premises (13 of 23) had appeared in the game.

The nice thing about drag racing is you can start at almost any age. You can start as young as age 8 with the Junior Dragster program.Although most people start racing in their late teens or early 20s, many drivers like John Ryan, 38, of Finksburg, do not start until later.Ryan always has been interested in cars, but put his racing interest on hold as he started a family and built a new home.Last year, at an age when others begin to wind down their racing activities, he felt he was ready to pursue his dream.

Boston -- On the seventh day before Christmas, the couple went out together to shop for presents. And came home with a bundle of revelations.Until then, mind you, the pair appeared to be a very model of compatibility. They shared everything from a passion for calamari to an impatience with Mario Cuomo.No predetermined sex roles skewed their partnership. Indeed, they were capable of sharing a kitchen, a checkbook and a tennis court without contemplating spouseicide. Who would have guessed that a gender gap of massive proportions would come unwrapped over gifts?
