One of the terrifically dramatic subplots of the NFL draft is the now-famous "Green Room." That's where the NFL invites the five or six college players most likely to be taken high in the first round to gather and wait for their names to be called so each can stride to the podium, smile for TV and hold his new team's jersey across his chest. There's lots of genuine jubilation as the players selected earliest in the draft can virtually start counting the cash, and sometimes there's a heartwarming moment - Maryland tight end Vernon Davis, for instance, bursting into joyful tears when the San Francisco 49ers made him the No. 6 overall pick two years ago. But more recently, the Green Room has also been a torture chamber for some high-profile players who unexpectedly waited and waited, hour after hour, for their turn, like the short, pudgy kid in a schoolyard game of pickup football.

Kate Parker was skeptical during a 2006 triannual pool tournament at Dundalk's Green Room Billiards club, and with good reason. "I've got a feeling we're going to Vegas," she remembered one of her teammates saying. And despite the banner adorning the lobby - "This way to Vegas" - Parker still had her doubts. "We had a shot at Vegas and we lost," she said. "So we went into the losers' bracket; we had a shot at Vegas and we lost. " Even after the two defeats, Parker and her team turned things around, going on an unlikely run. And through a combination of luck, skill and quirks in the rules, the Elkridge resident's team was off to Las Vegas for the American Poolplayers Association National Team Championship with a wild-card bid. And come Friday, and running over the course of two weekends, more than 100 teams will be competing for the same honor at Maryland's APA spring program tournament.

Art is often more about questions than answers. That point is driven home by the Sondheim Artscape Prize: 2012 Finalists exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Art , co-presented by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts. The six artists vying for the $30,000 Janet and Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize have in common an ability to provoke. Intriguing spins on familiar sights and common objects ask the viewer to ponder perspective and meaning; in one of the rooms is a hypnotic journey into the past that raises still more questions.

Q: I am going to redecorate my living and dining room, and I'd like to change my style from casual country to something more sophisticated. Any usable ideas from the latest royal house to open to the public, or is it all too grand for commoners? Thanks.A: With home decorating the boom area in home sewing in the United States, perhaps the opening of Buckingham Palace will provide some trends, and the grand royal style of decorating will find its way "across the pond" to "the Colonies." The excitement of this first peek by tourists has piqued everyone's interest.

Visitors to the new Fairfield Inn & Suites in Baltimore may not realize that many of the design materials are recycled or that the staff is wearing uniforms made from old plastic bottles. But there are some other more obvious elements making the hotel a bona fide green building. There is the giant rain barrel, once used by the former beer brewery owner to store grain, that collects roof water runoff in the courtyard. There are the mountain bikes available in some rooms and dual-flush toilets.

Stephanie Bell decided to skip her senior season of volleyball at Marymount (Va.) last year to pursue a different athletic endeavor. It still involves bumps and hits, only now she is working without a net. And instead of delivering overhand serves, she's dishing out forearm smashes. Bell gave up the sport she had played at James Madison High School (Vienna, Va.) and in college to go after her dream of becoming a professional wrestler. Known as Mia Yim on the independent wrestling circuit, Bell wrestles at small venues in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and Virginia while keeping an eye on one day working for a major wrestling company such as World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)

Andrew Maly has this gift.He can tell you that in 1846, the settlers in California staged the Bear Flag Revolt. He can name the capitals of Sri Lanka and Cyprus. He can tell you that Leon Spinks beat Muhammad Ali in 1978 to win the heavyweight title in one of the biggest upsets in boxing history.Perhaps even more impressive: He can listen to a three-second snippet of a cartoon voice and tell you, with absolute certainty, that it belongs to Woody Woodpecker."I'm blessed," says Maly, 34, an environmental engineer from Bel Air, "with the ability to retain useless knowledge.
