The return of Billy Cundiff from a sore left calf wasn't the only positive sight for the Ravens. The kicker converted a 42-yard field goal and three extra points and booted two touchbacks in the team's 24-16 win against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. Even more significant, according to Cundiff, was the familiar, satisfying feeling of being able to kick without feeling pain or limitations. “I think the thing I took away from it the most was my ability to be aggressive,” he said.

Your Midweek Madness supplier confesses ignorance of Shakira. Please forgive. The first awareness of this global sensation came a couple days ago with the accidental discovery of a cover made of one of Shakira's mega-hits, "Hips Don't Lie," sung by an a cappella ensemble of Oxford University students called Out of the Blue. (They've been raising money to support a children's hospice with downloads of the performance .) The infectious Out of the Blue video has gone viral, needless to say, so it is posted here only for the benefit of those few who remain pitifully unaware of Shakira's "Hips Don't Lie" or a bunch of "Glee"-worthy, wiggling warblers from a posh British school.

The Capitals' season continues to see-saw with 21 games left before the playoffs. They haven't been able to get in a steady rhythm since a strong November, winning a few games before losing a few then doing it all over again and again. Yet somehow, the Capitals remain well within striking distance of the first-place Lightning in the Southeast Division and they have a comfortable 14-point cushion on the playoff outsiders in the Eastern Conference. They are one hot streak away from storming off with the division and claiming at least the No. 3 seed in the East.

There was plenty of motivation for Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman  on Monday night if he wanted to seize it. He was facing the Seattle Mariners, the team that traded him away in 2008; his Orioles are in a surprising pennant race; his fellow starters had just strung together three impressive outings and, in his last start, he got bashed for five runs in the first inning before settling in. Tillman, though, said none of that is fueling him....

How Stella Got Her Groove BackMusic from the Motion Picture (Flyte Time/MCA 11806)Obviously, if you're putting together the score for a film with a title like "How Stella Got Her Groove Back," you're going to want music with plenty of groove. Moreover, given the story's Caribbean setting, you're going to want a specific kind of groove, one that suggests the sweet, hot sensuality of Jamaica - but without going entirely native."Music from the Motion Picture 'How Stella Got Her Groove Back' " meets both criteria, and then some.

The change isn't quite so apparent as last year, when he converted from starter to reliever in his 16th season.

Meditation seems to be everywhere lately - on talk shows, in yoga studios, even on our smartphones. A recent Time magazine cover story announced that we're in the midst of "The Mindful Revolution. " Celebrities including hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons and Ellen DeGeneres promote the benefits of meditation, and how-to classes abound. The ancient practice is gaining traction in the mainstream and in medicine. Studies show that regular meditators boast the ability to tune out distractions and even lower blood pressure and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.

ST. THOMAS, Virgin Islands -- Maryland and Morgan State came to this Caribbean destination for the Paradise Jam basketball tournament with different priorities. It's not that the Terps packed only their sneakers and the Bears packed only their snorkels, but the coaches from schools located less than an hour apart made it clear that they do not have the same agenda. Mark Turgeon said after practice in College Park on Tuesday that Maryland (1-2) is treating the three-game, four-day event as a business trip, an opportunity to improve on Sunday's home loss to Oregon State.

Jason Hammel capped his remarkable first-half -- one in which he emerged from nowhere to become the Orioles' most dependable starter and nearly make the American League All-Star team -- with his ninth quality start in 17 starts this season against the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night. Unfortunately for Hammel and the Orioles, they were facing a pitcher who is having one of the best first halves in years. Angels right-hander Jered Weaver, who might be the AL starting pitcher in Tuesday's All-Star Game, threw eight shutout innings, holding the Orioles to just three hits and striking out five, lowering his season ERA to a major-league best 1.96 as Baltimore lost, 3-0, in front of an announced crowd of 41,147 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

When Tricky began his career, working with the British dance music combine Massive Attack, he came up through the club bTC circuit in and around Bristol, England. As such, he was used to working in the studio and did occasional DJ gigs.But playing on a stage, in front of a rock and roll band? That was something totally unknown to him. So when he went solo, and began touring behind his debut album, "Maxinquaye," he was a little less than confident on stage."When we started off, we were shy," he says over the phone from a tour stop in Knoxville, Tenn.

Admittedly, I didn't stay up late to watch the Orioles beat the Athletics on Monday night. Once the Woah Bundy era officially began around midnight, it was time to flip over to Hallmark Channel and doze off to “Golden Girls.” But if there's a night to stay up late with the Orioles on this road trip, it's tonight. It's just one game out of 162 in another lost season, but it could have an impact on the future of the Orioles' rebuilding effort. Brian Matusz, whose early-season struggles and subsequent demotion was one of many punches to the stomach the Orioles have endured in 2011, will make his first major-league start in more than a month . After going 1-4 with an 8.77 ERA in six major-league starts, the young left-hander spent some time in Triple-A Norfolk.
