- Teams making their first appearance at Comcast Center in the state semifinals are usually just glad to be there. It's almost always a fun night, and then a long bus ride home. Somebody forgot to tell Owings Mills. The Eagles (18-6) used a team-first philosophy on offense and defense - and a timely block by Thomas Malcolm - to defeat Worcester County's Snow Hill, 44-42, and advance to their first state championship. Owings Mills will face Dunbar at 1 p.m. today for the Class 1A state title.

I'm tired of seeing young people die! And that's why we're going to be out here! And we're going to IMPACT people's lives! We might not impact everybody's life, but we're going to IMPACT some lives!"His voice echoed off the painted brick walls of the dilapidated apartment buildings of the Richard Allen Homes in North Philadelphia.

To: Dick Button, figure skating analyst, personal hero. From: An old fan Dick, you still know how to push our buttons.

We go way back with you - back to the '88 Games, when you innocently commented on a pair of ice dancers: "That was an angry tango!" A classic Buttonism was born!
