Shortstop Mike Bordick had the honor of recording the last out, fielding Jay Buhner's grounder and throwing to first. On the surface, it was one of his more routine plays in a series highlighted by his spectacular defense. He acknowledged, though, feeling a little jumpy."It took a little funny hop," he said, grinning. "That was pretty exciting, you know? Once I got rid of the ball and I saw it was on a true line, I just threw my hands in the air. I knew we had done it. That was exciting, really exciting."

My story isn't all that groundbreaking. I'm 23, officially a year removed from the University of Maryland-College Park and walking that ever-shaky line between being a functional adult and an irresponsible mess. It's a story you've heard many times before (probably in some form of Internet listicle). And it's also one that many of you are probably experiencing right now, or at least can remember when you were. My column will try to shed light on what being in this awkward half-stage of life really means.

Does it say something about the Orioles' chances of doing much here that we're already talking about Thursday's Rule 5 draft? There aren't really many exciting possibilities for the Orioles, but I knew I could attract you with that headline. Some posters wrote in, however, saying that the O's cannot choose anyone because their major league roster is at 40. That's technically true, but they can move players off the roster if they really want. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/schmuckblog)

Saturday's 21-7 victory over Delaware State alleviated some of the pressure on a Towson football program that had begun the season 0-2. But coach Rob Ambrose used a difference adjective to describe the post-game mood. “Maybe for some of us [it was pressure], but more excitement, especially for some of these younger guys who haven't had the taste of winning ball games that are in their hands,” he said Monday afternoon during his weekly conference call arranged by the Colonial Athletic Association.

As several Orioles ate breakfast in the middle of the home clubhouse at Camden Yards on Wednesday morning, a television report came on trumpeting the pending arrival of top prospect Matt Wieters. From now until Friday, when Wieters will be summoned from Triple-A Norfolk to make his major league debut against the Detroit Tigers, the Orioles players will hear plenty more about the switch-hitting catcher, though they say that's just fine by them. "I'm absolutely excited to see him," Orioles first baseman Aubrey Huff said.

Former New York Mets right fielder Ron Swoboda will be visiting Baltimore this weekend to spend some time with his father at the family home on Lakeview Avenue in Sparrows Point. Swoboda, 64, is now a television color commentator for the New Orleans Zephyrs, the New York Mets triple-A farm club. He retired from professional baseball in 1973 and was a television sportscaster in New York before moving to New Orleans, where he also did 20 years of local TV sports. "I try to relieve myself of overt Baltimorese, but it comes out after a couple of beers," he said of the local accent.

NFL Hall of Fame tight end Shannon Sharpe was a close friend of Ray Lewis when they played together in Baltimore. Sharpe was invited to attend Thursday morning's unveiling of the Lewis statue outside of M&T Bank Stadium but couldn't attend. However, Sharpe said he spoke to Lewis a couple of weeks ago. "When they put up a statue of a person that speaks volumes," said Sharpe on Thursday via phone. "It speaks about that person's impact on the community not just as a player but as a person.

On Friday, Towson released its first depth chart, and one of the notable developments was at free safety where redshirt sophomore Jordan Mynatt ranked ahead of junior Christian Carpenter, a first-team All-Colonial Athletic Association last season. During his weekly conference call Monday afternoon, Tigers coach Rob Ambrose said Mynatt, a Columbia native and Wilde Lake graduate, has grown exponentially since training camp opened Aug. 4. “From where he was a year ago, he's a lot more skilled and knowledgeable at the position,” Ambrose said.

At the front door of a home near Holabird Academy in Southeast Baltimore, new city schools CEO Gregory Thornton and the Baltimore Oriole Bird mascot greeted a gaggle of young children with fresh uniforms and backpacks, all ready for the first day of school. Thornton high-fived the children, his enthusiasm matching that of the grade-schoolers. He gestured toward the Oriole Bird. "Do you know that he's my friend?" "Oriole Bird your friend?" a tiny girl asked incredulously. Inside, a woman shrieked with laughter as the girl cautiously shook the mascot's hand.

The Orioles' decision to purchase the contract of infielder Cord Phelps from Triple-A Norfolk to take third baseman Manny Machado's spot on the club's 25-man roster was somewhat of a surprise because he wasn't on the organization's 40-man roster like other alternatives Steve Lombardozzi and Jimmy Paredes. But Phelps came recommended by Triple-A Norfolk manager Ron Johnson and other player development staff. “We take a lot of stock in what our people there every day tell us,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

The Orioles have reached the All-Star break, and Caleb Joseph can't believe he's still on the team. Joseph, who made his major league debut May 7, has emerged as the regular catcher in the lineup since Matt Wieters went on the disabled list in early May. Since the Orioles traded for Nick Hundley on May 24, Joseph has played in 11 more games than the seven-year veteran. "It's pretty fast-moving," Joseph said. "Before you know it, you're in the big leagues, and then it's the All-Star break, and you're still in the big leagues.

Which would you rather watch on television: poker or the fourth quarter of an NFL preseason game? As tempting as those choices are, I believe I will sit in a corner and contemplate my own navel.

Can't we watch the O's blow another late-inning lead instead? David Sweigard Shrewsbury, Pa. Neither. As someone who had triple heart bypass surgery in 1995, I strongly recommend watching pro golf.

Yesterday in one sentence : The gap between the Americans' loss and these matches didn't really help anyone's World Cup fever sustain itself, as France and Germany was kind of boring and Brazil won the battle against Colombia but lost the war as Neymar will miss the rest of the tournament with a fractured vertebra. What's on tap : Argentina vs. Belgium, noon, ABC; Netherlands vs. Costa Rica, 4 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see : Hopefully, better matches than yesterday's slugfest in Rio or snoozefest in Fortaleza.
