What was the key moment for growth of lacrosse in this country? You might say it was in 1999, with the movie American Pie, which depicted Jim, Stifler and pals as members of their high school lacrosse team. Though maybe that's just because you like thinking of Shannon Elizabeth, and you should be ashamed of yourself. I'll wait while you adjust your mind-set. OK, good to have you back. The actual big moment might have been 1980, when ESPN began televising the NCAA men's championship game, or 1988, when it started covering the entire final four.

Almost two years have passed since the NCAA men's lacrosse rules committee announced it would add a 30-second "timer on" countdown to combat stalling and slow play in men's lacrosse. And in the ensuing seasons, it's become clear that the timer is not a magical cure and that further changes need examination. In a column this week for Inside Lacrosse, analyst and Baltimore Sun contributor Quint Kessenich compares the evolution of lacrosse to that of basketball: The shot clock for professional basketball was invented by Syracuse Nationals owner Danny Biasone following the 1954 season in an attempt to speed up the game and prevent teams from stalling.

Peonies are old-fashioned plants with elegant, glossy foliag and soft, billowy flowers reminiscent of gentler days of yore.I call them Granny plants.There are two peonies growing beside our front door. One has fragrant pink blossoms the size of Shaquille O'Neal's hand; the other, huge white heads tinged scarlet at the core.The blooms will open soon -- our cue to divert traffic from the front entrance to the back, rather than disturb the delicate blossoms that are holding the front steps hostage.

Notre Dame is a battle-tested team, and most importantly, the Fighting Irish has averaged 12 goals per game in its recent six-game winning streak. Ranked No. 11 in scoring offense and No. 24 in scoring defense, Notre Dame is a different team than the one that lost, 15-7, to Duke in early April. The Atlantic Coast Conference champions have terrific depth. The Fighting Irish is built for the Memorial Day men's lacrosse championship, and it already experienced the quick turnaround while winning the ACC tournament last month.

In his first college lacrosse game, Jonathan Marcus faced Princeton, the defending national champion. He has played at No. 1 North Carolina and in the Carrier Dome, where 10,000 fans rose and howled in crescendo with every Syracuse fast break.Marcus, a freshman goalie for Johns Hopkins, has shown little emotion through the toughest schedule in college lacrosse. Coach Tony Seaman is still waiting for him to pump a fist after a one-on-one save or slam a stick after a defenseman fails to slide and it costs the Blue Jays a goal.

With St. Mary's trailing, 5-1, early in yesterday's Association of Independent Schools showdown with host Bryn Mawr, Saints coach Erika Bristow delivered a message to her team that ultimately would change the complexion of the game: Wake up!It was the call to arms the fourth-ranked Saints needed, and they responded by scoring 12 of the next 13 goals en route to a 13-9 win over the No. 10 Mawrtians."I don't know if it was the long bus ride [from Annapolis to Baltimore] or what," said Bristow.

The Milwaukee Brewers club that makes its first appearance at Camden Yards tonight is a perfect illustration of the uncertainty of sports.The Brewers hierarchy has a new look -- Sal Bando is the general manager, Phil Garner the manager -- not necessarily because the people in those positions are any better or any smarter than their predecessors (Harry Dalton and Tom Trebelhorn, respectively).But the new Brewers braintrust does appear to be luckier. At least their players are staying healthier than the old regime's players did.Milwaukee had more bad luck and injuries over the last four years than any club in the majors.

Baltimore CityBryn Mawr Mawrtians1995 record: 6-6.Coach: Anne Townsend Kessenich.Top players: Emily Hickman, Sr., M; Kim Smith, So., A; Janice Kim, Sr., D.Outlook: The Mawrtians return only six seniors, so they will be considerably less experienced than last year's squad. However, this lineup includes two of the AIS A Division's top players in Hickman (44 G, 10 A), an All-Baltimore/City County pick, and Smith, who transferred from Park after helping the Bruins to the B Division title. New coach Kessenich is bolstering the young defense with a couple of converted attackers, Nina Casgar and Katie MacColl.

On the heels of Johns Hopkins' announcement that the men's lacrosse team would join the Big Ten for the 2015 season, ESPN analyst Quint Kessenich had a few thoughts on the move. Kessenich is a former All-American goalkeeper for the Blue Jays. Do you have any concerns about the program's move to the Big Ten? I have two reservations - as you would with any kind of realignment. The first would be that I believe that teams - whatever the sport - when they change conference, they ultimately play themselves to the level of that conference.

In 31 days, two teams will meet in Philadelphia for the men's lacrosse national championship. Who that will be is anyone's guess. With unparalleled parity in the sport, the race is wide-open. This weekend, the best slate of the season, will go a long way toward winnowing the field. Some teams, such as Johns Hopkins and Colgate, need a win to keep their NCAA tournament hopes alive. Others, like defending national champion Loyola and Syracuse, want to burnish their resume. These seven games will go a long way toward deciding who will have a shot at Championship Weekend.

ESPN analyst Quint Kessenich participated in a Q&A on Monday . The former Johns Hopkins All-American goalkeeper, who can be followed on Twitter via @QKessenich, also addressed a few questions about No. 6 Maryland, No. 8 Loyola, No. 13 Johns Hopkins, Towson and UMBC: How concerned should Maryland be with an offense that has averaged just 8.0 goals in its last four contests? They've been coasting. Only eight against Carolina, nine against Virginia, 11 against Navy and then only four against Johns Hopkins.

John Oates showed us something last night.The temper tantrum he threw in the fourth inning -- the one that got him thrown out of the game -- was a major-league tantrum, the first we have seen from the rookie Orioles manager.Oates threw his cap. He pounded his fists. He screamed. After he was ejected, he came back out on the field, still capless, to argue some more.His performance would have been a credit even to a Hall of Fame tantrum thrower like Earl Weaver.My feeling is that the gentlemanly Oates has been a little too docile for a manager who had lost nine of his previous 10 games.

When Michael Gvozden talks, it's hard for people to listen. Gvozden, the sophomore goalkeeper for the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team, has grown hoarse, and his voice has taken on a raspy quality after several weeks of directing and screaming at his defense during practice. Gvozden's predicament is a result of adjusting to his new role as the starter for the defending national champions. But Gvozden doesn't mind sipping tea and gulping down spoonfuls of lemon juice as long as he can contribute to the No. 1 Blue Jays' bid for a second consecutive crown and third in the past four years.
