Music in the Great Hall wrapped up its 40th anniversary season Sunday afternoon at Towson Unitarian with two powerhouse artists -- flutist Marina Piccinini and pianist Michael Sheppard.  I could only stay for the first half of their recital (a performance of Rachmaninoff's "Vespers," one of my faves, beckoned at another locale), but it was a decidedly eventful first half. Piccinini, a Peabody Conservatory faculty member with a busy international career, established the sweetness and purity of her tone at the outset in the familiar Minuet and Dance of the Blessed Spirits from Gluck's "Orphee.

The Bel Air volleyball team enjoyed a milestone season in 2012, winning the program's first Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference championship and qualifying for the state tournament for the first time since 1999. In the middle of all the excitement was setter Amanda Rodriguez. Now a senior captain in her fourth year on varsity, she is focused on helping the Bobcats maintain the lofty standard set last season with a largely new cast and head coach. So far, so good. Bel Air is 5-1 in the early season with Rodriguez, an All-Metro first-team selection last year, the catalyst.

Hit hard by graduation losses from last year's Class 3A state title team, the Long Reach boys basketball team suffered another setback when senior forward Michael Bowden went down with a knee injury in the team's season opener on Dec. 5 It did not keep the Lightning from making an impressive statement last week in county play. With home wins over Atholton, Oakland Mills and Wilde Lake, the Lightning (4-1 going into this week) started off the county schedule as it ended last season - this time relying on a new cast of players and different measures.

DURHAM, N.C. -- The message in the Maryland locker room late Wednesday night was not sugarcoated.The No. 7 Terps can continue to stumble through the second half of the Atlantic Coast Conference schedule, or they can revisit the team concepts and fulfill the potential they showed in their first 20 games. They can be remembered as one of the biggest busts in school history, or they can rebound and be a force in March."That's what I told them," coach Gary Williams said as the Terps cleared out after their fourth straight lopsided loss to Duke.

After a unique, very-informal-for-Downton dinner party, Carson poses an interesting question in this episode: "Where's the style, Mrs. Hughes, where's the show?" "Perhaps people are tired of style and show," she responds. Perhaps. Well, most definitely for a good portion of the estate. Sibyl and Branson are - yes!! - very happy with their more low-key life in Dublin. Cora is even pretty much done with all the frivolity. Same goes for her mother, the visiting Martha Levinson (guest Shirley MacLaine)

Jamal Lewis (right) became the 24th player in NFL history to rush for 10,000 career yards. Lewis entered the Cleveland Browns' game with the Cincinnati Bengals yesterday needing 63 yards and went over the milestone on an 8-yard burst in the third quarter. He finished with 76 yards on 16 carries as the Browns lost, 14-0. Lewis, 29, played seven seasons with the Ravens, where he gained 7,801 yards before signing as a free agent with the Browns in 2007.

It's becoming hard to ignore all the chatter about Alex Rodriguez's hot start. After three years of holding him at arm's length, New York seems ready to adopt its third baseman. The cognoscenti on Baseball Tonight seem ready to hand him Barry Bonds' single-season record of 73 homers. And fantasy owners seem ready to reanoint him as our game's most valuable commodity. As you'll probably guess if you've read me for a while, I'm skeptical. By all means, be excited if you own A-Rod. He's a great player in the middle of a great streak, and that's fun. Joe Sheehan wrote a well-reasoned piece on BaseballProspectus.

I've written football for six weeks in a row, so in the seventh, I'm resting. Besides, Week 1 of the NFL season produced not a single victory for my three teams. Eddie Kennison, Wali Lundy and Chris Cooley, you let me down. But enough on that. Let's talk some baseball, a sport that has been much kinder to my fantasy fortunes this year. One of the fun things about any season is watching spectacular talent emerge. It doesn't matter if these players are on my team or not. I just like knowing there are a few more stars who will quicken my pulse and those of my league mates when they come up in future auctions.
