Dan Knise walked briskly into the Sheraton Baltimore North Hotel in Towson, scarcely breaking his stride as he warmly shook hands, then made a beeline for the hotel directory to check the meeting roster -- all in one fluid motion. Not yet 8 a.m., and the president and chief executive officer of the Washington-Baltimore Regional 2012 Coalition was running 10 minutes early. But that could never last on a day that would take him from his home in McLean, Va., to Towson, to downtown Washington, back out to Columbia, and finally home again.

NOTEworthy Day:With home crowds at Maryland football games failing to fill up all the seats, athletic director Andy Geiger, who said he didn't want to schedule games in Baltimore, may have no alternative but to change his mind. Appearances by Georgia Tech and Pitt would have sold out Memorial Stadium and provided a handsome payoff for the Terrapins.* Stupidity of the year award: to Larry Bird fanatics who are circulating petitions to have his face sculptured into Mount Rushmore, so he can join George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.

As a kid, Terry McAulay watched football games on TV and practiced the moves he saw - not the spins and jukes of the players, but the gestures and actions of the officials. Hands on hips? Offside. Arms folded? Delay of game. At age 9, McAulay knew them all. "Terry would sit there for hours, mimicking every signal that the referees used," said Dene McAulay, his mother. "We marveled at [the pantomime]. He never said a word, he just did it. " Some day, he told his family, he would referee the Super Bowl . Sunday, McAulay will do that for the third time when the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks meet in Super Bowl XLVIII in East Rutherford, N.J. It's the highest honor for an NFL official and a tribute that doesn't surprise high school coaches in the Baltimore area who dealt with McAulay, of Howard County, in his early years as an arbiter.

The one-time home of the former Baltimore Bullets wasn't filled to the rafters, but the game drew a large, enthusiastic crowd that included a lot of fans who showed up to watch an improved Wizards team in a very intimate setting and even more who came to cheer on  Anthony (Towson Catholic)

Baltimore City and Baltimore County public schools closed two hours early Wednesday because of the heat, so all games are postponed and all practices are canceled. Also, with Howard County experiencing a Code Red heat index, all outside athletic events in the jurisdiction have been canceled Wednesday. Because some schools in both Baltimore City and Baltimore County do not have air conditioning, officials close schools when the heat index rises into the upper 90s. The temperature is expected to rise into the mid-90s this afternoon and the heat index had already jumped over 100 by noon.

When the Washington Wizards announced Wednesday that they would play a preseason game against the New York Knicks in Baltimore this fall, Frank Remesch wasn't surprised. As general manager of the Baltimore Arena, which will host the Oct. 17 exhibition, Remesch said the success of a Washington Capitals preseason game against the Nashville Predators in 2011 helped sway Ted Leonsis, who owns both the Capitals and Wizards. “I think it's kind of common sense,” Remesch said, noting that the Capitals will take part in a second Baltimore Hockey Classic against the Boston Bruins on Sept.

After 15 years of waiting for playoff baseball at Camden Yards, Orioles fans had to endure an extra 21/2 hours as chilly rain pushed back the start of Sunday's division series opener against the hated New York Yankees. A mighty roar shook the stadium when the grounds crew peeled away the protective tarp at 8 p.m., conveying just how badly Baltimore fans wanted their October moment. The crowd didn't grow quiet until the Yankees scored five runs in the ninth inning on their way to a 7-2 victory.

Steve LaPlanche - "Sports Steve" to his friends - says he hasn't missed a professional football game played in Baltimore since 1956. His streak, he says proudly, is 358 games and counting. "I started going when I was 3, and I haven't missed a Baltimore home game since then," said LaPlanche, 59. "Ever since I was born, sports was like a magnet to me. I've lived and slept sports. " But LaPlanche, whose loyalty has lasted through Baltimore's NFL Colts, USFL Stars and CFL Stallions before settling on the Ravens, isn't simply a dedicated fan. He also makes a proud spectacle of himself at every home game with an intricate homemade getup.

Sitting in the visitors' dugout, Davey Johnson looked out over the park that used to be home, took a deep breath and grinned. It had been 15 years, but Johnson was finally managing again in Camden Yards. "Feels good to be back," said Johnson, now the manager of the Washington Nationals, before Friday night's series opener against the Orioles. "Little different view from this angle," he added. Different view, same landmarks. There, in the dugout across the field, that's where Johnson watched his final game wearing an Orioles cap. Over the right field wall, that's where Tony Fernandez launched his series-clinching home run in the top of the 11th inning, breaking a scoreless tie for the Cleveland Indians in Game 6 of the 1997 American League Championship Series.
