It's no surprise that new teen buddy flick Grind takes place in the world of skateboarding. With pro skateboarder Tony Hawk hawking Doritos, teen queen Avril Lavigne singing an ode to her "Sk8er Boi" and Jackass star Johnny Knoxville and his boarding buds pulling high ratings on MTV, the once "alternative" sport is being embraced by the mainstream media. "Grind isn't a serious skate movie," says star Mike Vogel, who recently appeared at Charm City Skate Park in Baltimore with co-star Jennifer Morrison.

In the four years that Jeff Shirk has coached Washington College, the program has qualified for the NCAA tournament three times. This spring, the team reached the national semifinals for the first time since 2004. That may seem like a remarkable achievement, but Shirk downplayed that feat when compared to schools that have enjoyed a certain amount of longevity when it comes to the postseason. “We were talking about it as coaching staff that it's so impressive when you consider the teams that do this year in and year out,” he said.

Grind - if you don't know the word, as it relates to skateboarding, you won't like the movie. It's a sport and a subculture with an ethos and a lingo all its own. "You really tweaked that method to fakie, bro." And you and me are, like, "Dude, where's my subtitles?" Grind looks to have cost about 700 bucks and could have been shot during a long weekend. Certainly that's more time and money than was invested in the script. It's a skateboard road-trip picture about four dudes from Chicago who drive and skate their way west at the end of their high school education.

Last winter, Rachel Millman began searching for a home in Baltimore. She combed through listings online, but the work of narrowing down her search based on static images became tedious. What if, instead, she could take a video tour through each house, and use a slightly more dynamic medium to decide whether to schedule an in-person tour? When Millman closed on her new home in Canton this year, having already pitched her idea to a number of receptive real estate agents she had met along the way, she knew this was the right moment.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- In the dozen seasons between Ray Miller's managerial runs with the Minnesota Twins and the Orioles, the truism never changed that the best managers always plan at least two innings ahead. With only 12 days remaining before the March 31 season opener against the Kansas City Royals, Miller is thinking six months ahead.The defending American League East champions arrived in camp facing few unknowns. As proof of an uneventful spring, they have created none for themselves since.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- It sounds like a dream job for a typical weekend hacker: Spend eight months at one of the prettiest spots in the country, improve your game at one of the world's best courses and oversee everything but the golf at the U.S. Open.For Frank Bussey, a transplanted Baltimorean, being director of operations for the 92nd Open has been both a grand assignment and a terrific grind. It's a great thing to have on the resume, but it takes a toll on his wife, Cynthia, and their 11-year-old son, Evan, back in Towson.

This time each year, Michael Rock leaves work smelling like pine needles, weary from a repetitive chore that signals the final curtain for the Christmas holiday.Rock and a dozen other Baltimore County highway workers spend the last three weeks of January shoving Christmas trees -- stripped of their lights and tinsel, thank you -- into chippers that grind the trees into mulch."When I go home, I smell like a pine tree," said Rock, 33, of Parkville. "It just stays with you."The daily grind is part of a winter rite this month at landfills throughout Maryland, as jurisdictions collect thousands of Christmas trees and turn them into mulch.

As Greg Cantori speeds down South Hanover Street and begins the gentle climb over the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge, he looks like a banana in motion: He's wearing a bright yellow shirt, bright yellow gloves, bright yellow socks, and bright yellow bicycle helmet. "That's my ride-to-survive color," says Cantori. "Here's my rule: The weirder you look, the safer you are." Despite (or maybe because of) his garish appearance, Cantori would make a worthy poster boy for Baltimore's annual Bike to Work Day, which -- for all you oblivious automobile junkies -- is today.

Ben Cardin is a member of the U.S. Senate; he's the junior senator from Maryland. Jon Cardin is running in the June 24 primary for state attorney general. Ben Cardin is not running for anything this year. Jon Cardin is 44 years old. He is Ben Cardin's nephew. Ben Cardin is 70 years old. He is Jon Cardin's uncle.

Paul Cantabene was not entirely sure how the Stevenson players would react after dropping a 14-13 overtime decision to Roanoke on Tuesday night. But as the No. 3 Mustangs prepare to dip back into Middle Atlantic Conference play with a visit from Albright this Saturday at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills, the head coach is hoping that the team practices and plays with an undercurrent of anger. “I think we need to start playing a little more angrily,” Cantabene said Wednesday. “In my time here, this is one of our nicer teams.

Playing against one of the nation's best defenses and a hot goalie in their fifth game in 15 days, No. 4 Loyola didn't have an easy time Saturday. Despite never trailing, the Greyhounds couldn't pull away against Bellarmine, and Loyola needed to grind out an 8-6 victory in an Eastern College Athletic Conference game at the Ridley Athletic Complex. "Five games in 15 days is quite a bear. I give my guys a lot of credit," Loyola coach Charley Toomey said about the stretch, which also included games against Delaware, Towson, Maryland and UMBC.

Maryland's 64-59 victory over Boston College was one of those occasionally difficult-to-watch games involving a team that seems to be struggling to grow up before our eyes. It's not always pretty. It's akin to parents watching teens make inevitable errors in judgment as they mature. What did Al McGuire say? The best thing about freshmen is that they become sophomores? But the Terps - who started freshmen Charles Mitchell and Jake Layman -- won. For the fifth game in a row, the Terps scored fewer than 65 points.

This week on "The Amazing Race," we say farewell to the curious passport-stealing cab drivers of Russia, and we say  do svidaniya  to the Swim Coach of Frustration and the Professor (of Love). Time to go to someplace with a red, white, and blue flag. No, the other place. The Chipps depart first at 7:32 p.m., and it is still daylight. This is only notable to me because at my house it's dark by 5:00. Yay, winter.  So Chippendale Jaymes gets a backstory interview: He says his dad is dealing with cancer, and he wants to win so he can help his dad with medical expenses.

BOSTON - Orioles closer Jim Johnson often refers to his teammates as a bunch of grinders, a group of blue-collar players who pay little attention to individual accolades and instead focus on doing the unnoticed essentials that lead to winning. Johnson uses the grinder term because it bears reference to the gritty third-liners of a hockey team (he's a die-hard New York Rangers fan), the guys who lay down hits instead of scoring goals. So when Johnson set a new Orioles single-season record with his 46th save to close out a 4-2 win over the Boston Red Sox on Friday night, he didn't get caught up in the mark.

The all-in-one grind-and-brew coffee maker -- a machine that, with one press of a button the night before, has a hot, brewed pot of coffee waiting for you in the morning -- is a coffee lover's dream. But, like all utopian promises, you have to wonder if it's really possible. So we decided to put the three grind-and-brew machines on the market -- Melitta, Cuisinart and Capresso -- to the test. Only the Capresso offers the advantage of a burr grinder, which crushes the beans between rotating cones (rather than shredding them with a single blade)

If Orioles fans are lucky, it will be this way for another 3 1/2 months. The Orioles have a chance to win their fourth series in a row if Wei-Yin Chen can pitch half as well  against the Atlanta Braves on Sunday as Jason Hammel did on Saturday night. That would be a pretty big deal after the way they struggled through late May and early June, but --  let's face it - in the American League East, you can't let down for a second. This is the division where you can win eight of your last 11 (as the Orioles have)
