FREMONT, Calif. -- "Hi there!" chirps Kristi Yamaguchi, flashing her lip-gloss-pink smile at the next in line.At 20, she is perhaps the best female figure skater in the world, and hundreds of fans have come to see her at Macy's.She has been at it for an hour, perched behind a makeshift desk. In front of the black bustier and miniskirt display in the juniors department, she is writing words of inspiration and drawing a loopy flower after each signature she writes on the glossy 8-by-10s of her winning performance at the World Figure Skating Championships last March.

BOSTON -- When told that his players, for the most part, deny doing much scoreboard-watching this month, Orioles manager Buck Showalter joked: “You bought that?” But Showalter said he has been impressed with the way his team has been dealing with its large divisional lead in September - which is a new experience for nearly every player in the Orioles' clubhouse. “I think they're handling it very maturely from a standpoint where we've got to take care of our business,' Showalter said.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- As a rookie three years ago, he was a 10-game winner and an apparent fixture in the Orioles' starting rotation. Two years ago, he was injured and unhappy, his fade coming gradually. And last spring, he vanished after pitching in two exhibition games.Now, after a season spent mostly in the minors following shoulder and elbow surgery in August 1997, Rocky Coppinger is trying to bring his career full circle and regain a job with the Orioles.He's made an early statement in the eyes of manager Ray Miller, who watched Coppinger throw earlier this week and said it was the best he had looked in three years.

Nobody around here is going to throw Manny Machado under the team bus for letting his emotions get the best of him over the weekend against the Oakland Athletics. Before judging him too harshly for Sunday's bat-flinging fiasco, it's important to remember that he's just a kid and he has heretofore been a solid young citizen. He's probably going to get a few unpaid vacation days for throwing his bat down the third-base line after a couple of inside pitches from Athletics reliever Fernando Abad.

Marcus Leak tried to watch as many Maryland football games as he could last season, but that was not always easy. The junior wide receiver was home in Charlotte, N.C., taking a semester off for still-undisclosed "personal" reasons. When he did catch a game on television, sitting at home with his family or out with friends, Leak knew the Terps could have used him, especially after fellow wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Deon Long each broke a leg in a game at Wake Forest. "It was hard to watch at times, at times like that [when the two wideouts got hurt]

With their miniature French poodle, Marcel, in tow, Thomas and Joan Spence start each morning in Mount Vernon Place, walking past the magnolias and cherry trees and Japanese maples, along the sidewalks and around the footprint of the Washington Monument. The couple, transplants from New York who chose to settle in Baltimore for their golden years, say they're lucky to live near the city landmark and eager for its restoration. But they can't abide one aspect of the plan: removing more than 100 mature trees and replacing them with younger transplanted ones as part of a broader $14.5 million privately funded restoration plan.

The Terrance West of old would have reacted to a pair of fumbles with a few choice words directed at anyone who happened to be nearby. But after two early turnovers last Saturday, No. 3 Towson's junior running back channeled his rage into redeeming himself. For West, redemption was 28 carries for 238 yards and thee touchdowns in the Tigers' 44-28 victory over then-No. 19 New Hampshire. "It surprised me a lot because I don't know what happened," said West, who had not lost a fumble in his previous 12 games.

There was a lot of hype following Jake Layman into his freshman year at Maryland. The 6-foot-8 forward from the Boston suburbs had made a dramatic leap in national recruiting rankings between his junior and senior seasons in high school, then got another boost when he made the under-18 U.S. national team the summer before he came to College Park. The first few months at Maryland were a bit overwhelming for Layman, on and off the court. Mark Turgeon softened his approach with Layman around Christmas after talking with the freshman's parents, and Layman responded during the second half of the season.

Candlelight Concert Society, which is embarking on its 41st season, and Vantage House, a retirement community, both qualify as mature institutions in Columbia. Wisdom comes with maturity, of course, so their new partnership qualifies as a smart idea. The arrangement involves having Candlelight provide speakers who will give free introductory lectures at Vantage House for upcoming Candlelight-sponsored concerts at Howard Community College's Smith Theatre. These lectures are not just for Vantage House residents, however, but are open to the public.

Towson has enjoyed significant wins in the past, but none may have been as big -- or grabbed as much national attention -- as the team's 33-18 victory over Connecticut on Aug. 29. But rather than worry about a potential letdown, Tigers coach Rob Ambrose said he saw a mature squad in the week leading up to last Saturday's eventual 49-7 rout of Holy Cross. “It would wear on us,” he said of the impact of a significant win in the past. “We would walk around and talk about it, everybody would tell us how great we were, and we would love hearing it and be distracted and have a hard time getting squared away again.

Will the Maryland basketball team show improvement from last season during its upcoming trip to the Bahamas? That's what third-year coach Mark Turgeon is hoping for during a three-game, four-day exhibition tour against local competition that begins Tuesday night in Nassau. In an interview last week, Turgeon said that the extra summer practice time allowed under NCAA rules for teams going on trips out of the country has turned the Terps into a more mature group. "To me, it's more about the practices and the preparation, which the guys have done a great job with," Turgeon said.

When his first Kentucky Derby horse, Orb, was named the favorite Wednesday, Stuart S. Janney the III was not there to raise his hands triumphantly for the cameras. He won't be in Louisville at all in the days leading to the race. A short phone call with his trainer each day is all the northern Baltimore County resident requires. The rest, he'd rather avoid. "There's a lot of silliness that happens this week," he said Monday. "And I've got paperwork to catch up on. " Janney is instead in New York, where he spends much of his time at the 5th Avenue headquarters of the Bessemer Trust, the wealth management firm of which he is the chairman.
