Each year, contestants in the Kinetic Sculpture Race are required to write a short summary of the amphibious mechanical creatures they plan to build. These descriptions are short stories in miniature, frequently poignant and deceptively profound. Just kidding. But, the synopses are amusing. Here are some of our favorites from this year: •Carver Cobra II: "The last Cobra drowned during water entry at Canton. This one has had swimming lessons." •Going to Hell: "Fire, Brimstone, Devils, Oh My!"

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Not long after the arrival of a clear, chilly dawn yesterday at Churchill Downs, Prairie Bayou stepped sprightly from barn 45 and made the short trek to the track for a gallop. A mob of reporters followed. It happens every spring.Twenty minutes later, when the horse was being bathed in front of the barn after his workout, a clattering crowd of photographers and cameramen closed in, clicking and whirring and recording every move. Just like always.Every horse in the Kentucky Derby gets to play the star for at least a few minutes in the loud, crowded week leading up to the race.

Of the 12 Johns Hopkins players who have caught passes thus far, more than half of them are wide receivers. In fact, the top four in receptions and yards are wideouts. But in just four games, sophomores Quinn Donaldson and Bradley Munday have emerged as senior quarterback Braden Anderson's favorite targets. The 6-foot, 190-pound Donaldson leads the No. 10 Blue Jays (4-0 overall and 3-0 in the Centennial Conference) in catches (18), yards (301) and receiving touchdowns (three)

When we talk about music, we tend to place our experiences into one of two categories: making the music and listening to it. Delineating the two seems practical and obvious. In reality, though, there are a lot of opportunities for overlap, and it doesn't matter how you get into the music as long as you connect with it. Here are some approaches to try. Immerse I love performing. The sounds coming at me are dynamic, colorful and multi-layered. The energy from the musicians around me and from the audience is a swirl of excitement.

Maryland narrowly escaped with a 24-17 win Saturday over South Florida , a team that was just 2-10 last season and that struggled with a lowly FCS program (Western Carolina) the week before. Nevertheless, the Terps begin this week as a three-point favorite over West Virginia, according to ESPN.com. West Virginia travels to face Maryland on Saturday in College Park, a game that will provide the biggest indicator to this point of just how good the Terps can be. The Mountaineers beat Towson 54-0 on Saturday and hung with No. 3 Alabama in Week 1 before falling 33-23.

Twin crusades to convert more parents to cloth diapering and to instill confidence in the art of “babywearing” have helped make Greenberries a destination for shoppers from as far away as Annapolis and Gaithersburg. Providing education and support to parents wasn't part of the original formula for the Columbia children's and maternity consignment boutique, which is celebrating its fifth birthday with a party at the Snowden Center store Aug. 16. But just six months after opening the store in 2009, owner Rachel Baliff jumped on a customer's suggestion to sell cloth diapers.

Fazzini's Taverna had been open only about six weeks when we visited on a Saturday night. The restaurant, which occupies the old Piv's location on York Road in Cockeysville, was very crowded, with a 45-minute wait for a table if you were silly enough not to make a reservation on a Saturday night. There is a good explanation for the out-the-door crowds. Fazzini's Taverna is just about the most all-around satisfying restaurant I've reviewed in months and months. We had a great meal here, excellent service and a wonderful time.
