The Orioles suddenly have an offense that is clubbing the ball, a pitching staff that is consistently limiting the opposition and a fan base that is packing the stadium, hooting and hollering throughout the game. After a 10-3 drilling of the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday afternoon, these first-place Orioles are partying like it's 1979. Or at least their fans are. “Nothing is given. Every day is another challenge,” Orioles manager and self-imposed reality-checker Buck Showalter said.

By definition, it was the New York Yankees who were in  pinstripes at Camden Yards for the Orioles' 3-2 win in 10 innings Friday night . Their fans, as always, were out in abundance, making up at least half of the sellout crowd. But these weren't the dominating, punch-you-in-the-gut Bronx Bombers of old. This Yankees club was making its 2014 debut in the city with no Mariano Rivera, no CC Sabathia and no Alex Rodriguez. Its centerpiece for so many seasons, shortstop Derek Jeter, is 40 and retiring at the end of this year.

Luke Shilling doesn't have a driver's license yet, but he is on the road to success in lacrosse. He probably still hasn't figured out how to shave, or whether McDonald's Crench fries taste better than those at Burger King. He still uses words like "awesome" and "wow" and he doesn't have a girlfriend. But at age 16 and yet to play one second in a high school lacrosse game for Boys' Latin, Shilling has already verbally committed to play college lacrosse at Johns Hopkins. Wow. Awesome.

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.

As CEO and president of the Baltimore-based Pure Bang Games, Walsh spends his waking hours leading a team of nine developers aiming to release a new social game every few months.  The irony, of course, is that Walsh is a lifelong gamer who, if he ever took a vacation, "would sit down and do nothing but play" all the games he's been missing out on since starting Pure Bang in...

Presenting this week's sports media notes while wondering whether anyone else is getting a little tired of seeing highlights of practically every one of Tyler Hansbrough's two-handed dunks: I had to call a repair guy this week because when I watched the NHL game Tuesday, there was a bunch of snow on my screen. (Pause for rim shot.) Though the Pittsburgh Penguins-Buffalo Sabres game from Ralph Wilson Stadium was compelling enough to keep me from flipping over to one of the bowl games on other channels, it suffered from the stoppages to fix the ice surface.

Everyone is a rookie sometime in their life. In baseball, the term is often used scornfully -- in other sports it just denotes a beginner.At Brunswick Normandy Lanes, one Tuesday league is named the Rookies, and no one seems to know why the name was chosen.Reda Wiles, league secretary for the past three years, is no rookie no matter how you figure it. Rookies don't bowl in tenpin leagues or in duckpin leagues like Wiles.She has bowled duckpins for a long time and tenpins since 1986. Her tenpin average is 164 with a career high game of 257 and a high series of 581. In duckpins, Wiles carries a 113 average with a high game of 181 and a high series of 424."
