LILLEHAMMER, Norway -- Brian Boitano has seen the bright lights of the ice show circuit from New York to Paris.He has skated with Katarina Witt, performed in prime-time television specials, earned millions for turning triple jumps on a dime, night after night, year after year.But on the whole, this is where he would rather be, in another Winter Olympics, testing his skills and his courage against another generation of would-be figure skating kings."I wouldn't be here if I didn't think I could win," Boitano said.

In search of vinylRemember vinyl records? I still have a few left that I occasionally give a spin on my dusty turntable. Sometimes the record skips, and I have to tape a penny to the needle's arm. But that's OK. Not every great record has been issued in CD form, so we vinyl fans cope. We'll be the ones poring over the really old records at the Maryland Music Collectors Record/CD Expo on April 17 and May 22 at the Arbutus Volunteer Fire Hall. Buy, sell or trade your vinyl here. You won't find any professional dealers, just plenty of people who appreciate all types of recorded music.

LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- Dan Hollander's World Figure Skating Championships lasted 4 minutes, 30 seconds.Third in America, Hollander couldn't even crack the top 30 needed to advance from yesterday's men's qualifying round. He missed a few jumps. He spun out of a few landings. And then, he was gone, 18th in his qualifying group, sidelined with a bunch of other also-rans.Afterward, Hollander, a 5-foot-2, 24-year-old with a passion for martial arts, reviewed the faults of his program and finally said, "Oh, my God. You're making me relive this."
