One of Venroy July's most vivid recollections from when he was a boy growing up in Jamaica was watching boxing with his father, Venry. The November 1992 bout between Evander Holyfield and Riddick Bowe was especially memorable for the Baltimore lawyer who moonlights as a boxer. "I remember lying with him and him kind of explaining to me the rules of boxing, the scoring, the 10-9 scoring and how if you get knocked down, you get 8 [points] and just how that worked," recalled the 30-year-old July, who was 9 at the time of the heavyweight fight.

Ralph Morales took a circuitous route to the Baltimore Road Runners Club's eight-miler at the Loch Raven watershed Sunday, but in keeping with the spirit of the Father Time Frolic, he wasn't that far off track.Morales, who lives in Mount Washington, drove to Robert Yara's house in Cockeysville. The two of them ran to the start of the Father Time Frolic at Peerce's Plantation and then ran the eight-miler to the old dam and back. They finished the race tied for first place in 44 minutes, 1 second.

I thought the first day of Spring would make a good occasion to mark the arrival of Midweek Madness on Artsmash. This featurette was such a keystone of my previous blog, Clef Notes and Drama Queens, that I had no choice but to bow to the total lack of popular demand and carry it over to this one.

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — The sweat beaded off Baron Davis' beard in a steady stream. First one drop, then another. With every word, every jaw movement, the sweat poured off his face until it looked like he was raining. It's hard work digging through your past — especially when you're digging on bad knees and a bad back. Davis seems invigorated by the work he has done with the Cavaliers the past few weeks. He says he is "rediscovering" things in his game that were absent during his time with the Clippers.

BRADENTON, Fla. -- Jim Palmer proved his point. So di Father Time.The best thing now would be if Palmer's aching right hamstring tells him, "No more." Palmer, reluctant to appear a quitter, won't say those words himself. Neither will Orioles manager Frank Robinson, who promised him a fair shot.No one judges a 25-year-old pitcher on one spring outing, but Palmer is a 45-year-old pitcher, and a Hall of Famer at that. His dismal two-inning performance against Boston yesterday ended the mystery.

Stepfather. It is an unfortunate word. It conjures up images of Hamlet's white-hot hatred of Claudius, or of Cinderella's domestic situation -- only with more testosterone. Bartlett's Quotations has 58 entries under father. None for stepfather. Webster's New 20th Century Dictionary points out that one of the meanings of stepchild was a synonym for orphan. Stepchild comes from the Anglo-Saxon word astepon, the verb to bereave. It's not too difficult to figure out why we don't use the prefix in our house.

Dozens of local running enthusiasts greeted the new year bright and early on Jan. 1 by taking part in the Father Time Frolic, a 5-mile road race run that's held annually in the Loch Raven area beginning at 9 a.m. on New Year's Day. Hosted by the Baltimore Road Runners Club, the race winds its way around Loch Raven Reservoir Peerce's Landing on Dulaney Valley Road, to Providence Road, and back. The race is a "predicted time race" - meaning participants are not allowed to wear watches, and winners are determined by those closest to their predicted time.

A year ago, one of baseball's most prolific home run hitters decided he'd rather quit playing than lower himself to accepting a minor league contract. Later this month, Sammy Sosa will report to spring training with the Texas Rangers because he would rather accept a minor league contract than quit playing. Sosa, 38, reportedly will earn $500,000 if he makes the Opening Day roster, plus an additional $2 million if he meets all his incentives. He's 12 home runs shy of 600 for his career, which seemed as out of reach during his one season with the Orioles in 2005 as the balls he once launched into upper decks throughout the majors.

Minding your health is not a young man's game. Muscles work smoothly in the teen years, joints flex easily in the 20s. It seems like young men can eat what they want, drink what they desire, and the pounds melt away as quickly as they put them on. They can work 16-hour days, party until 3 a.m., and get up the next day and do it again. (Give or take a few bad hangovers, of course.) Life is a river, flowing to them effortlessly and endlessly. Then sometime in the middle decades -- perhaps as men hit their mid-30s and approach 40, or sometimes 50 -- the river changes.

Angie Gardner was 28 in April. And then in June, she turned 21. What's going on here? Did she hitch a miniride on a time machine? In a way, yes. Gardner, who readily admits to having been born 32 years ago, is getting progressively younger thanks to the chronology-bending properties of BodyAge, one of the newest additions to the fitness-industry toolbox. It's essentially an applied-mathematics formula that purports to calculate how old you are biologically, as opposed to what your birth certificate says.

The end of his PGA Tour career is three-up with three to play -- dormie, the golfing term is.Wadkins is running out of holes. Not even the man considered by his peers as the best match-play golfer in spikes can win this one.But if age is going to beat him, it had better make some birdies. Literally and figuratively, Wadkins hasn't stopped firing at the pins."The only thing that bothered me when I got to be 40 was the sense of urgency," Wadkins said.

It was cold yesterday morning at Loch Raven Reservoir - about 12 degrees with the wind chill. It was early. And it was the morning after New Year's Eve. Despite those disincentives, 52 men, 11 women and a bluetick hound dog named Blueberry showed up for a 9 o'clock race to welcome the new year with a six-mile run along the hilly, pine-lined roads that ring the reservoir. "A lot of nonrunners don't quite understand it," said Rick Bingham, president of the Baltimore Road Runners Club and organizer of its annual Father Time Frolic on New Year's Day.

At Mount St. Mary's, Jim Deegan is as timeless as men's basketball coach Jim Phelan. Deegan, in his 44th year at the school, is in charge of the men's and women's track and field and cross country teams on an interim basis. The women earned a second-place finish at the Northeast Conference indoor meet last weekend. When Mike Merritt left in January to go to Howard, Mount St. Mary's looked to Deegan, who had agreed to be an assistant to Merritt when the latter took over both programs in 1993.
