The two coaches sat together under the shade of UMBC's Stadium Complex. The coaches, men with more than 60 years of experience between them, occasionally glanced down at the women's lacrosse practice in motion, talking to pass the time. The reality is that Pete Caringi II, UMBC's soccer coach, and Don Zimmerman, the school's lacrosse coach, share more in common than a profession. Both men have earned their reputations through the respected programs they have built, through the wins and championships they have achieved and the countless number of athletes they have coached.

Mike Locksley always has tried to play one role with his four children: dad. The Maryland football team's offensive coordinator has been successful in that regard with his daughter, Kori, an Olympic Development Program soccer player who already has eight Division I scholarship offers after her freshman year at Olney's Good Counsel High. His three sons have been a different story. Having already coached his two oldest in college - Michael Jr. at Illinois and Meiko at New Mexico, each for two seasons - Locksley now is weighing the possibility of coaching his youngest son. But when it comes to Kai Locksley, he has to avoid a role that has brought him much acclaim in his coaching career: recruiter.

Tim Russert, host of NBC's Meet the Press, has agreed to terms with Miramax Books for a memoir about "fathers and sons." Russert's representative, Washington attorney Bob Barnett, said about 10 publishers competed for the book.

Hillary Rodham Clinton and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, whose memoirs will be published by Miramax next year.

When the father-and-son team of Michael Vaters Jr. and Sr. go out for a ride together, people notice. That's what happens when what you're riding is a six-ton Monster Jam truck, complete with 60-inch tires and a steel cage where the driver's seat should be - a truck that seems to divide its time equally between being airborne and smashing other cars and trucks beneath its tonnage. This weekend at the Baltimore Arena, the Vaterses will be joining about a half-dozen of their Monster Jam brethren for the sort of rip-snorting good time that can be realized only when massive machines go flying through the air, groaning and snorting in a sort of Transformers-like scenario.

AND SO, Father's Day rolls around again, a day that has always held a special significance for me and, until a few years ago, for Tom Francis Richissin, my dad. My father died a bit more than six years ago, when I was 31. He was a pretty good father. He coached his sons in baseball, football and basketball. He was a police officer, an honest one, a man of integrity. He put food on the table and kept enough order in a chaotic house that my four brothers and I were expected to be home to eat supper together, as a family.

The importance of a father's role in the development of a daughter's healthy self-esteem has been widely documented in psychology and self-help books. By now, we all know that fathers of girls ought to be involved and emotionally supportive. Some men start early, taking their daughters to formal father-daughter dances. Then, there are the typical movie outings, breakfasts on weekend mornings and coaching or attendance at their daughters' artistic and athletic events. How about hunting together?

A GOOD MAN: FATHERS AND SONS IN POETRY AND PROSEEdited by Irv BroughtonBallantine Books280 pages. $20Virginia Woolf once said that a woman writing thinks back through her mothers.

A woman writing -- like a man writing -- thinks back through her mothers, her fathers, her sisters, her brothers, all her literary forebears."A Good Man: Fathers and Sons in Poetry and Prose" is predicated on a belief similar to Virginia Woolf's: that a man writing thinks back through his fathers.

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.

Greg Dean was away in college at Salisbury University when his father, Willy Dean, caught a bull shark in 2010. Greg shared the experience, but only vicariously. The younger Dean, who returned to the family's Southern Maryland home in Scotland after graduating this year and joined the family's commercial fishing business, got the same experience firsthand last week. Fishing off Point Lookout State Park early Tuesday, the Deans and friend Rich Riche pulled in two bull sharks that had become entangled in the 20-foot nets they use mostly to catch menhaden.

In the title essay of his book ''Fathers Playing Catch with Sons,'' the poet Donald Hall writes:''Baseball is fathers and sons . . . the generations, looping backward forever with a million apparitions of sticks and balls. . . . Baseball is fathers and sons playing catch, lazy and murderous, wild and controlled, the profound archaic song of birth, growth, age and death. This diamond encircles what we are . . . joining the long generations of all the fathers and all the sons.''Yeah, yeah. And what about the daughters, bub?

Yeats, an Irishman himself, said it best: "The worst are full of passionate intensity." So it was in 1974 when the worst of the Irish -- IRA terrorists -- detonated a bomb in a British pub killing five people. And so it was that the worst of the English -- the Security Services -- reacted savagely with laws suppressing individual rights, which permitted them to sweep up in a sloppy but vast net virtually anyone with a brogue.One such was a flaky youth named Gerry Conlon, then 20, a Belfast refugee who was quickly browbeaten into confession and spent the next 15 years in dismal British prisons.

This NFL offseason represents the 10-year anniversary of the inception of the "Rooney Rule. " The rule, named after Pittsburgh Steelers' Chairman Dan Rooney, requires teams to interview minority candidates for all head coaching and senior football operation positions. Initially, the rule showed some signs of success, but the coaching moves from this offseason have even Dan Rooney's son, Steelers' President Art Rooney II, wondering "whether we are really reviewing minority coaches in a satisfactory manner.
