It is the crazy season. Overseas, an American soldier murders women and children in Afghanistan. Iran threatens a nuclear weapon. Israel threatens an airstrike. On the campaign trail, politicians wait for a misspoken word and pounce eagerly to improve their advantage. Even the weather is bizarre: Europe is buried in snow, while record highs are seen across the U.S. Here in Maryland, daffodils are in full bloom a month early. But for a moment on Sunday, the stars aligned and all was well with the world.

Keven Moldenhauer doesn't have a problem with any other sports. In fact, he coached high school basketball for 10 years and is a fan of baseball and football. But for Moldenhauer, a Forest Hill native and Salisbury graduate, nothing quite compares to the excitement of ultimate. "In baseball, you're just waiting for that big play, maybe a home run or a double play. And in football, you're waiting for a big catch," Moldenhauer said. "In ultimate, those type of plays happen all the time.

IN THE WORLD of Frisbee-catching sky dogs, Jimmy is a high-flying hound. On many evenings, you can see the 3 1/2 -year-old Australian cattle dog and his master, Frank Buckland, happily practicing in the back yard of Buckland's Pasadena home. A small plastic disc flies from Buckland's hand and Jimmy retrieves it - in midair. As a team they have won a regional championship and have even competed for a world title. And now they're about to make their television debut. They will appear on Maryland Public Television's Outdoors Maryland show at 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

On a hot, summer afternoon in Severna Park, Chris Redmond cradles a flat plastic disc between his hands, gets into position, tenses his muscles, wets his lips and -- Whoosh. The Frisbee disc slices the air so fast you almost miss it, leaps 300 feet in a few seconds and smacks right between the green ribbons on a wooden post.This is disc golf, and it is Mr. Redmond's special love. The 25-year-old naval engineer from Arnold designed and installed the 9-hole disc golf course at Kinder Park with his own money, spending several hundred dollars and many hours to create a place for disc golfers.

This week at the city's typically sedate Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, there's been much barking, furry things tearing at top speed though the lobby and — don't tell Marin Alsop — a wee puddle in one of the backstage hallways. Shedding, too. It's pretty safe to say that's also a first for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. The BSO is letting its hair down a bit for its annual Holiday Spectacular, which this year prominently features trainer Tony Hoard and his famous show dogs. Any fan of "America's Got Talent" will remember Hoard and Rockin' Rory, who caused a television stir last year by making it to the semifinals, where Rory's high-flying canine tricks left plenty of disappointed singing and dancing humans in his wake.

Frisbee discs didn't mean much to Dan Bobrowsky while growing up. His first and most memorable experience came as a young child when he would watch his neighbor's dog do tricks with them. That caught his attention. "The dog was pretty good sometimes," Bobrowsky said with a laugh. Some friends of Bobrowsky used flying discs to catch his attention in a different way during his high school years. He was recruited into the school's ultimate disc club during his junior year at Wilde Lake. The group quickly fell in love with the sport and began practicing and playing regularly for two years before graduating in June 2005.
