As if Michael Phelps needed another feather in his already over-stuffed cap, Men's Health has just named him the fittest man of all time. There are folks on the list like the incredibly hunky Daniel Craig, the inspiring Oscar Pistorius, even Charles Atlas, who pretty much made physique a thing. Let's put it this way: Ray Lewis only made the list at No. 100. And Phelps topped them all. Men's Health defined fitness like this: It "isn't just about abs and muscle tone and obscure measurements like V02 Max - but that's all part of it," they wrote.

Angry? You bet I'm angry! Another one of those Men's Health magazine rankings has come out, and typically enough, Baltimore comes off badly: We're the fourth-angriest city in America. Maybe we're still mad over what the magazine said in January: That of the 100 best cities for men, we're 93rd. Or maybe we've been steamed since November 2004, when the magazine's sexiest cities in America rankings came out and Baltimore was a bottom-scraping 96th. But we're probably just generally irked because we're also middlingly stupid, possibly impotent and sort of bummed out. Says who?

Terry Davis didn't know he was having a stroke, much less that, as an African-American male, he had a three to four times greater risk of suffering one than a white man. When a transient ischemic attack, or ministroke, hit nearly a year ago, he was 49. He woke up early, felt a little slackness on his right side, a little slowness in his speech. A professional tennis teacher, he canceled the day's lessons and, thinking more sleep was what he needed, went back to bed. His wife, Carrie, still feels guilty that she got a little annoyed with his lethargy that day. "I thought, `Snap out of it. Help me get the kids going,'" she says.

Men are in crisis. We have lost our sense of adventure. We don't know how to play anymore. We can't dress ourselves. We don't know how to build muscles we never thought we had. We own the wrong sand wedge, canoe, sunglasses, blazer, vodka and dog. We have sissy hobbies. We are not men at our best. But in our darkest hours, there are men's magazines. For only $19.88 you too can become a new, more adventurous, playful man. You just need a little help, a few equipment or fashion tips, a few pictures of model babes fawning over your Armani jacket or Calvin Klein jeans.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- A few weeks before coming here, Winston Cup rookie driver Jeff Fuller stood beside his vibrant blue-and-white race car. It was the car that was attracting the attention, not the driver. Not then, anyway. The car, the No. 27 Pontiac, had its sponsor's name sprawled across its hood. V-I-A-G-R-A. The jokes inevitably came. "Jeff, if you should happen to win a race, do you get out of your car in Victory Lane and say, `I owe it all to Viagra?' " Fuller didn't even crack a smile.

Residents of Baltimore had lots of rankings to consider when they went to the polls yesterday to decide if Mayor Martin O'Malley was worthy of re-election. Crime rankings, housing price rankings, school test score rankings and health rankings to name a few. As if that wasn't enough, this month's issue of Men's Health magazine has come out with yet another ranking -- of the sexiest cities. You would think, with a buff, young mayor who's often in the gym and whose nickname is Mayor O'Hottie, maybe this is one ranking where Baltimore can come out on top. Then you remember there's a part of Baltimore called Pigtown.

The Howard County Central Library unveiled a new health information collection this week that offers health-related books, journals, magazines and other resources in one visible - and comfortable - location. "What we wanted to do is create a kind of friendly environment where people could feel comfortable perusing the health collection and relax while doing it," said Deborah Barlow, reference supervisor for the central library. The library condensed its reference area and moved it to one end of the second floor to create a roomy, open area for the new collection.

In the world of gender politics, death is the latest measure of parity. Not only do women outlive men, but recent research shows they're also being born more often than in the past. The allegedly stronger sex, it turns out, is really the weaker and more vulnerable - from conception until death do us part. Nature has always seen to it that about 105 males were born for every 100 females, but that ratio has been shifting the past three decades, possibly owing to environmental pollution as well as to stressful current events.

A new medication that arrived in pharmacies last month is raising the possibility of widespread hormone replacement therapy for men -- much like for post-menopausal women -- even as it raises fears about misuse. The product, a gel form of testosterone called AndroGel, is approved for use in men with abnormally low levels of testosterone. Currently, only about 150,000 to 200,000 men are being treated for low testosterone, although the advent of AndroGel could boost that number to 5 million.

Last winter the National Football League revised its marketing game plan and lifted a self-imposed ban on doing business with drug companies. Bayer Pharmaceuticals and GlaxoSmithKline - joint distributors of the new erectile dysfunction pill, Levitra - quickly signed a three-year sponsorship deal worth a reported $18 million. Those new bedfellows have just launched a public education campaign titled Tackling Men's Health. TMH is geared toward pulling the average-guy football fan away from his buffalo wings long enough to get him up to speed on a variety of topics, including diabetes, stress, heart disease, mental and sexual health and prostate irregularities.

Dave Gensler is a typical guy, but he knows that typical-guy behavior can be a killer. Three years ago, the youthful 44-year-old suffered a heart attack. Fortunately, his heart was not extensively damaged. But his doctors warned that next time he might not be so lucky. Today, Gensler is dedicated to good health. He eats fresh foods, exercises regularly and checks his vital signs weekly. He just ran a 6.8-mile leg of the Baltimore Marathon in a relay with friends from the Johns Hopkins Heart Health center.
