Wei-Yin Chen said he was “speechless” after throwing eight shutout innings Friday. He has now faced the Oakland A's three times, and is 3-0 with a 0.44 ERA in  20 2/3 innings against them. He was truly dominant on Friday. The A's hitters were completely lost. Watching Chen pitch in a chilly Oakland Coliseum, with all that extra space in foul territory and the ball not traveling well, he just looks tailor-made for this place. He throws strikes, the hitters swing and make plenty of contact.

Hot pants, El Nino, Elite Republican Guard and now "fiscal cliff. " When the national news media grabs hold of one of these slogans, they're like a dog with a bone - or your pants leg! They won't let go and will repeat it ad infinitum, as if they know nothing else. Then, it will go away forever. Hot pants came and went in 1971, El Nino did not lead to El Nina, the ERG turned out to be bogus (and ran). Maybe now the fiscal cliff will join the dodo in the dustbin of history. I sure hope so. I'm sick of hearing it already.

Anna SuiAnna Sui, one of the new kids on the designer circuit, presented a romping kiddie collection. She wants to put the twentysomethings who patronize her street-smart line into naughty baby dresses and schoolgirl gear. She sent out little plaid cotton kilts with shrunken Peruvian sweaters, a lighthearted summer version of street grunge. On the sweeter side, she showed short denim apron wrap dresses, silver leather hot pants and hip skirts and skimpy vintage print shifts. To reinforce the kiddie theme, she put models in fuzzy stuffed animal hats, white knee socks and silver tap-dance-class shoes.

WASHINGTON - No parents, no teachers, no principals or any other real authority figures are anywhere in sight, so behavior isn't closely monitored much here. Naturally, nearly everyone cuts loose, lets it all hang out - literally and figuratively. Giggling girls run in and out of the men's restroom. Reefer smoke mingles with the greasy scent of fries and chicken fingers. Welcome to the HFStival at RFK Stadium. This is the annual all-day rock extravaganza put on by the "true alternative" rock station, 99.1 WHFS and sponsored by the likes of Miller Lite, Subway, Bacardi, Starbucks and others.

The other day I had an out-of-time experience. All I did was try on a pair of jeans at the Gap in Towson Town Center -- but when I looked in the mirror, it was my '70s self staring back out at me.The cause was the cut. I had been there, done that cut of pants: the waist below the natural waist, the butt and thighs tight, and the legs flaring slightly a little below the knees. It was the cut for pants about 25 years ago, and it's the cut for pants now.It looked good on me, but I wasn't sure it looked right -- they're not always the same thing.
