Reading Time: Two Minutes.If Azeglio Vicini, coach of Italy's World Cup team, doesn't start 10 players against Spain Saturday at Foxboro, keeping his 11th man as a hole card, he should be deprived of his glass of red wine with meals for a year. Clearly, a man down is when La Squadra Azzurra (the Blues) are at their best. That's the coaching tip for this week.* As proud a moment as Baltimore has ever had in the sports realm was the World Series sweep of the Dodgers in 1966. Remember any of the details?

William Bowling watched from two seats away as Dan Clark got out of his seat and walked into the aisle of M&T Bank Stadium's Section 521 during the Ravens game Sunday. Bowling said he was close enough to reach out and grab him - and he would have, if he had known what was going to happen next. Clark, 48, took a step, dropped the phone in his hand and fell down the flight of steps in the stadium's upper deck during the Ravens game against the New York Jets, turning and hitting the back of his head on the platform at the bottom of the section, Bowling said.

When Mount St. Joseph coach Steve Szlasa was asked about his team's health before yesterday's season opener, he said the Gaels were doing fine "except for the usual first-game jitters."Szlasa had his own nerves to contend with, this being his first game as coach and his return to Severn School, where he played for two years before graduating in 1982.The 12th-ranked Gaels started slowly, allowing five quick shots and a goal by Peter Janney. But they soon got untracked and later took advantage of a three-minute, nonreleasable penalty to begin the fourth quarter by scoring twice for an 8-6 victory over the No. 8 Admirals in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game.

The parents of a developmentally disabled man who died after being handcuffed at a Frederick County movie theater have sued Regal Cinemas and the county in federal court. The lawsuit filed Thursday also names the county sheriff's office, three deputies and the movie theater as defendants. Robert "Ethan" Saylor, 26, died in January after the incident at the Westview Regal Cinemas at Westview Promenade in Frederick. In the lawsuit, Patricia and Ronald Saylor accuse the defendants of negligence, violating Ethan Saylor's civil rights and violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. "If any of the Defendants had heeded Mr. Saylor's aide as to how to deal with Mr. Saylor, his tragic and unnecessary death would have been avoided," they say. Saylor had Down syndrome and an IQ of about 40, they say, and it was easy to recognize his developmental disability.

Hofstra owns a 24-18 lead against its Colonial Athletic Association rival, but Towson ended a four-game losing skid with a 10-9 decision in double overtime last year. The No. 19 Pride (6-3, 1-1 in the CAA) have quality wins against No. 1 Notre Dame and Fairfield, but they have also dropped two of their last three contests. Exhaustion could also be a concern for Hofstra, which has played four games in 11 days. The Tigers (5-5, 1-0) have rebounded from a 0-3 start. Thomas DeNapoli has recorded nine goals and five assists in the team's last four contests, and the junior attackman ranks 15th in Division I with 2.7 goals per game.

Francis Scott Key accomplished something no other Carroll County school had been able to do since mid-October 1994 and ended years of frustration in the process when it scored two minutes into the second overtime to defeat Westminster last night, 2-1.In the end, a blend of experience and youthful enthusiasm helped No. 7-ranked Key (6-1), a Class 2A school, give seven-year coach Mindi Wagner her first victory over the perennial Class 4A power.Sophomores Kelly Miller, who scored, and Stacey Foster, who fed her, combined for the winning score, as Westminster goalkeeper Emily White lay sprawled, stretching in vain to deflect the ball out of a scramble in front of the cage.

Welcome back, Homelanders - let's get caught up. First of all, our heroes Carrie and Saul (using aliases “Claire Danes” and “Mandy Patinkin,” respectively) have been flattered by some awfully breathless press coverage over the past month. If you didn't get a chance to read their profiles in The New Yorker and New York Times Magazine , I'll give you the recap, so to speak: they are the awesome genius intellectuals of the acting world. Claire told the paper of record that  “Mandy is obviously verging on legend.” Mandy says Claire sent him a two-page recipe for roasted chicken!

O'Malley met for about 45 minutes Thursday with the family of Robert "Ethan" Saylor, a man with Down syndrome whose death in police custody sparked a nationwide Internet campaign dubbed "Justice for Ethan.

Moments before off-duty Frederick County sheriff's deputies tried to force a young man with Down syndrome out of a movie theater - a move that eventually led to his death - Robert Ethan Saylor's 18-year-old aide warned them that he would "freak out" if they touched him. "Next thing I know, there are I think three or four cops holding Ethan, trying to put him in handcuffs," the aide told authorities, according to documents from the Frederick County...

On Jan. 12, Robert Ethan Saylor, a 26-year-old man with Down syndrome, died at the Regal Westview movie theater in Frederick. I did not know Mr. Saylor or his family, but I can't get his tragic death off my mind. Mr. Saylor liked the movie he saw, "Zero Dark Thirty" - he liked it so much that he wanted to watch it again. While his support staff person went to retrieve the car, Mr. Saylor returned to his seat in the theater. When he told the moonlighting sheriff's deputies providing security that he wanted to stay and watch the movie again, and refused to get up, the officers tried to physically remove him. Restrained face-down and handcuffed, Mr. Saylor died from asphyxiation caused by a crushed larynx.

The program's strength will soon be tested this Saturday when America East rival Binghamton pays a visit to UMBC Stadium in Catonsville. The Bearcats (5-8 overall and 2-2 in the league) are tops in the nation in suffocating extra-man opportunities, surrendering just four goals on 28 man-up chances and turning away 85.7 percent of those opportunities.
