Baseball's All-Star Game meant a great deal to me when I was a young fan. So it saddens me to see what an embattled institution it's become. The numbers are undeniable. As SI.com's Richard Deitsch noted Monday , last year's television audience of 11 million was down 61 percent from the 28 million who watched in 1985. That's a meaningful comparison for me, because 1985 lay right in the heart of my romance with the midsummer classic. I was 9 years old and obsessed with the sport.

MESA, Ariz.   - Michael Phelps ended the first meet of his comeback on an odd note Friday, using his butterfly stroke to swim a 50-meter freestyle race that's never been part of his repertoire. He was swimming to tinker with his form, not to win. And the race proved a side note to a week with greater implications for the record-setting Olympian and the sport he has loved since childhood. Phelps' return sent a charge through what would have been a routine meet, and the shock waves will continue to ripple through the swimming world as long as he's around.

South Carroll quarterback Tom Luster kept his word last night to fallen teammate Greg Mihalko.Moments before Mihalko, who had carried the ball 36 times for 207 yards and two touchdowns, left the field in an ambulance with a neck injury, Luster leaned over to Mihalko and told him: "I love you Greg. We're going to win this game for you."Mihalko reached out and squeezed Luster's hand in an emotional scene in the middle of the field before the door closed on the ambulance.A teary-eyed Luster went back into the huddle with his team, facing a second-and-seven at the Westminster 47-yard line with four minutes left in the game and the score tied at 21.Luster took charge and five plays later, he tossed a 25-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Esworthy to lift the Cavaliers to a 27-21 victory and the 1994 Carroll County championship at Westminster last night.

NEW MARKET -- Nobody will call South Carroll coach Gene Brown conservative anytime soon.After quarterback John Luster hit Dave Keefer with a 19-yard touchdown pass that brought the Cavaliers to within one point of host Linganore last night with 50.2 seconds left, Brown decided to roll the dice.He called timeout and decided to go for two points rather than kick for the tie. Luster then rolled right and barely got into the end zone for the conversion that gave South Carroll a stunning 29-28 victory over Linganore in a Central Maryland Conference game.

WASHINGTON - With control of both the House and Senate hanging in the balance, Democrats are struggling to find a political theme for this year's election campaign to offset the wartime luster of President Bush. The Enron debacle once looked as if it had the potential to snare Bush and his party in a political scandal. Indeed, the millions of dollars doled out by officials of the energy trader to candidates in both parties gave a boost to campaign finance reform legislation. But polls suggest that voters see Enron primarily as a saga of corporate misdeeds, not necessarily associated with Republicans.

PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico - Under any other circumstances, the residents of this beach town would have been just plain happy to have Andrew Luster off the streets. In his last five days of freedom, the heir to the Max Factor fortune and fugitive serial rapist was living in a motel that rents by the hour next to the local office of the Mexican version of the FBI. Nights would find him in the flashy clubs, consorting with lots of young women. But when a U.S. bounty hunter tackled Luster last month in front of a taco stand near the waterfront, the capture created its own brouhaha over vigilantism, national sovereignty and neighborly relations.

The scene repeated itself over and over yesterday. A hungry diner would walk up to the Homewood Delicatessen, look through the darkened window with a frown, then finally catch the yellow sign in the window.It was a death notice."Closed. We thank everyone for their support," read the handwritten sign telling customers that the Homewood Deli was out of business."We were just here last week," said a surprised Thelma Gross, who had come to the deli with Doris Carroll, a co-worker at the Board of Education.

Max Borders at The Freeman has very enlightening piece on why progressive media outlets have gone on the offensive against libertarians . Borders writes: Let's get to the heart of the matter: Progressives are afraid. Just when they seized the ring, their power is ebbing. Outlets have to make libertarian voodoo dolls so they act as pricks. But why is libertarianism gaining so much traction? What is the true source of the prog media's fear? He lists 10 reasons why progressives fear libertarianism.  I wont' go into all of them, here but suffice to say, they do not bode well for Gov. Martin O'Malley's nascent presidential campaign.  Borders argues that as more and more Americans have become disaffected with the failed economic policies of President Barack Obama on the left, and continue to distrust the social conservatives on the right, they are moving to a more fiscally conservative, socially liberal and distinctly libertarian vision.   Progressives represent the status quo, Borders writes.

Many of Annapolis' established downtown interests seem to reflexively resist change. Annapolitans even have a name for it: the Downtown "No" Club. The latest version of this "No" Club is the self-described Coalition to Save Annapolis, an unusual alliance of United States Yacht Shows, the Ward One Residents Association, the Annapolis Business Association, Historic Annapolis Inc. and others. These groups are united by their opposition to a rezoning ordinance I introduced to implement Phase One of a City Dock Master Plan that has been more than two years in the making.

When Lerner and Loewe's "Camelot" debuted on Broadway in 1960 with a cast headed by Richard Burton as King Arthur, Julie Andrews as Guinevere and Robert Goulet, an unknown Canadian in his first starring role, as Lancelot, the musical became an instant hit. Fifty-three years later, "Camelot" retains its luster, especially in 2nd Star's current production, now playing at Bowie Playhouse in White Marsh Park. Frederick Loewe's music and Alan Jay Lerner's lyrics are magic. Lerner is also responsible for the book, allowing King Arthur's message of hope and idealism to permeate almost every scene.

Between 1983 and 2004, Syracuse advanced to the NCAA tournament semifinals every year, a remarkable accomplishment that may never be matched again. What makes Duke's seven consecutive appearances in the Final Four nearly as impressive is that the Blue Devils have achieved that in a four-round tournament, which was expanded from 12 to 16 teams for the 2003 season. But seventh-seeded Duke (14-5), which will tangle with Cornell (14-3) in the first of two national semifinals this Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, is just 2-4 in the Final Four, advancing to the title game in 2007 (losing to Johns Hopkins)

By his own admission, Kyle Busch fell out of contention for the Sprint Cup title when his car blew an engine Sunday at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. That's a shame — for Busch and for NASCAR fans. Busch, 25, not only is the most controversial driver in the series, he's also one of its most fearless and dynamic racers. There's a reason his many nicknames include "Rowdy. " Temperamental, opinionated and testy at times, Busch is either loved or hated by NASCAR fans, and he revels in being the object of those conflicting passions.

Rory Sabbatini's heart and sense of golf history certainly are in the right place. The sentiments of a defending champion, though, may not stand up to the hard-bitten realities of the contemporary PGA Tour. The Byron Nelson Championship plays its 43rd edition this week — honoring the gentlemanly "Lord Byron" whose run of 11 consecutive tournament wins and 18 in a season might as well be chiseled into the PGA Tour record books. "The only emissary this tournament will ever need is Byron Nelson's name," Sabbatini told reporters not long ago. "That in itself is inspiration enough for anybody on tour."

Somewhere out there is Troy Luster, but nobody seems to know exactly where. Once, he was found in newspaper headlines. Now, neither the school where he played basketball nor the school where he occasionally attended class knows where he's gone.Some think nobody particularly cares any more, since his scholastic athlete days are done. Luster was a very good basketball player, but a very indifferent student. This is putting it kindly.He played ball this year for Douglass High School while enrolled -- now and then -- at Harbor City Learning Center, which is an educational court of last resort for kids with troubled histories.

In the truest sense of the word, Gloria Luster has built a victory garden. When she adopted her cluttered Pimlico lot from Baltimore City a decade ago, she could not get a pick ax into the hard pan that had replaced a razed house.To "help the soil become alive," Mrs. Luster fed her lot with organic matter; grass clippings and leaf compost, mostly. She fought what few pests plagued the garden with "beneficial" insects, such as praying mantises, and if absolutely necessary, made judicial use of Rotenone and Pyrethrum, powerful organic insecticides.

It wasn't all that long ago that the PGA Tour's annual arrival at TPC Sawgrass would reignite discussion as to whether The Players Championship deserves major status. That debate has pretty much died off now. And in at least one pro's mind, golf's richest event may not even hold honorary "fifth major" acclaim. England's Lee Westwood raised eyebrows at last week's Quail Hollow Championship when he suggested the maturation of the World Golf Championships series may have nudged The Players aside.

COLLEGE PARK -- Lance Stephenson, a McDonald's All-American who is one of the top unsigned basketball prospects in the nation, is no longer being recruited by Maryland, according to two sources with knowledge of the school's efforts. Stephenson, a 6-foot-5 swingman from Brooklyn, N.Y., whose off-the-court issues have caused Maryland and other colleges concern, has not been pursued by the Terrapins program for several weeks. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of discussing recruits.
