When you play nine seasons with one club, and you are a career .293 hitter, eventually you are going to start moving up the organization's all-time lists. With a single in the first inning and a double in the seventh Thursday, right fielder Nick Markakis tied and then passed former teammate Brian Roberts for seventh on the Orioles' all-time hits list with 1,453. Next up for Markakis is sixth place and longtime right fielder Ken Singleton, who leads Markakis by two hits. The rest of the list is a "who's who" in Orioles' lore: Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. is the organization's all-time leader with 3,184 hits.

Poor Ken. He's in a bit of a midlife crisis, it seems. His longtime girlfriend -- maybe you know her? Barbie? Leggy girl, with the cool pink car? She dumped him last year for a hotter doll, Blaine. And since then, Ken has been catching the blues about why Barbs kicked him to the curb. Many have speculated, but Mattel, Ken's parent company, has decided the breakup came down to one thing: Ken needs a makeover. "He's trying to keep up with the most fashionable woman on the planet," says Lauren Bruksch, spokeswoman for Mattel Brands, which announced last week that Ken, who is 43, would unveil a new look this spring.

When love found Stephanie Lee it came hurtling through the sky in the form of a handsome man who almost didn't survive the trip. Stephanie met Ken Ching three years ago while they were learning to sky-dive. Ken, a computer network engineer, and a business acquaintance had decided to try sky-diving. Stephanie, who happened to be dating the business acquaintance, was one of many other people the two men invited, but only Stephanie -- whose philosophy is, "Try anything once" -- was game. One of her biggest reservations about the adventure was not jumping out of a plane, but that she would have to share the experience with some businessman she didn't know.

One day last week, when Bonnie Bonnell was reading The Columbus Dispatch, the newspaper she saves for her three sons in Iraq, she noticed a change. The war dispatches that dominated the front page for almost a month had nearly disappeared. Soon the questions from neighboring sheep farmers and friends near Marysville, Ohio, changed, too. Instead of asking Bonnie and Ken Bonnell what it was like to have three sons at war, friends wondered aloud when the boys might come home. But Ken, a retired Army lieutenant colonel and a Vietnam veteran who served two tours, knows from experience that danger is not over when a war ends.

Ken Jackson of Baltimore said that when he was preparing to fly to Utah he heard forecasters say the relative humidity there was 15 percent. "What is the lowest relative humidity recorded?" Lower than that, Ken. Relative humidity is the water vapor content relative to the atmosphere's capacity at a given temperature. Warmer air can hold more water, so the number falls when dry air heats up. Chile's Atacama Desert averages 15 percent. In June, McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas reported 2 percent relative humidity.

Towson was the preseason favorite to win the Colonial Athletic Association. Delaware was a game better in the regular season. So which team is the favorite at this weekend's CAA tournament at Baltimore Arena? Ken Pomeroy, the incomparable college basketball statistician and blogger, says Towson. On his kenpom.com blog, Pomeroy breaks down the odds of each team reaching each round of the CAA tournament . No. 2-seeded Towson has a 83.4 percent chance of winning its quarterfinal against James Madison, a 60.4 percent chance of reaching the final and a 33.5 percent chance of cutting down the nets Monday night and earning the league's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament . Pomeroy gives Delaware a 30.2 percent chance of winning it all. "The semi-home status I bequeath on Towson is enough to give the Tigers a slight edge over regular-season champ Delaware," he writes.

January 25, nine shotgun blasts rang through crowded passageways inside The Mall in Columbia. In seconds, three lives were claimed, and Howard County joined Newtown, Conn.; Aurora, Colo. and too many others on a grim list of places where a sense of security has been ripped away by gun violence. Now that the initial shock has dimmed, we are entering a next stage - figuring out how to move forward and do all we can to prevent such tragedies whenever possible. We cannot allow this to become the new normal, so we look for ways to adjust our programs and priorities.

The Navy football team has accomplished all of its preseason goals in 2013: the Midshipmen beat both of their service academy rivals to retain the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy for the second straight year and won the requisite number of games to earn a bowl invitation for the 10th time in the past 11 seasons. With four consecutive wins, Navy (8-4) now wants to do something it hasn't done since 2009 - win a bowl game. The Midshipmen will get that opportunity when they meet Middle Tennessee State (8-4)

The lives and careers of Navy football coach Ken Niumatalolo and Army coach Rich Ellerson have crossed many times over nearly three decades, starting when Niumatalolo was a two-sport high school athlete outside Honolulu and Ellerson recruited him to play quarterback at Hawaii. Ellerson brought Niumatalolo and two more highly acclaimed players, Thor Salanoa and Brian Norwood, from Radford High to play for the Rainbows. Salanoa was Niumatalo's cousin and Norwood, now the associate head coach at Baylor, was one of his best friends.

Ken Niumatalolo, usually one of the more reserved coaches in college football, went off script in the Navy football team's 42-14 thrashing of South Alabama on Saturday night. Almost midway through the third quarter, the Midshipmen set up to punt on fourth-and-6 from their own 40-yard line. But junior punter Pablo Beltran faked the punt and instead threw to sophomore defensive end Will Anthony for a 15-yard gain and a first down. But officials flagged Navy for an ineligible player downfield.

Ken Niumatalolo's voice typically goes up a couple octaves the more upset he becomes. After what transpired Saturday at Duke, Niumatalolo is inching closer to becoming a soprano. In what Niumatalolo described Monday as Navy's most disappointing defeat "in a long time," the Midshipmen were blown out by the Blue Devils, 35-7, after a scoreless first quarter. "We got our butts whipped from Notre Dame in Ireland [last year], but they have a few first-round draft picks," Niumatalolo said after practice in Annapolis.
