I was already a huge Beatles fan when the group performed at the Baltimore Civic Center on Sept. 13, 1964. So that's why my Catonsville friends were surprised to learn where I spent that evening: at home. Those same friends were again surprised about 10 years later when I told them how I had met Paul McCartney by accident (well, sort of). Let me connect the dots between those two stories. I became an instant fan of The Beatles after hearing their music on Baltimore WCAO-AM radio in late 1963.

After a deliberate process that stretched nearly two months, the Mets have chosen Terry Collins as the team's next manager, but the team was holding off an official announcement Sunday until the contract details are finished, Newsday reported. Collins emerged from a group of 10 candidates picked by general manager Sandy Alderson , who trimmed it to four finalists, and the Mets have scheduled a news conference for Tuesday at Citi Field. "We've made our decision," a Mets spokesman said Sunday, "and we are working on the terms of a contract.

The NCAA rules committee's decision on Thursday not to recommend a shot clock for the 2015 season drew a mixed reaction from a pair of area Division I men's lacrosse coaches. A shot clock had been a heavily debated topic as players, coaches and fans bemoaned the slower pace of play associated with a game that has been called "the fastest sport on two feet. " But the committee, which met Tuesday through Thursday in Indianapolis, instead suggested by next spring the installation of a visible shot clock for the 30-second warning issued when officials rule that an offense is stalling and not making a concerted effort to attack the net. "I'm surprised because I did think there had been enough conversation and a lot of proponents for the shot clock," Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala said.

The Mets will have a new manager and general manager next year, as Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya won't return in 2011. The Mets declined to pick up the option on Manuel's contract Monday and relieved Minaya of his duties as GM, one day after the club finished a disappointing season with a record of 79-83. Manuel posted a record of 204-213 after taking over for Willie Randolph on June 17, 2008. Minaya had been the club's GM since 2005. •The Pirates fired manager John Russell one day after he guided the club to their first 100-plus loss season (57-105)

Even as I rejoice for the hometown Baltimore Orioles, I'm depressed by the play of another favorite team, the N.Y. Mets. Another spring filled with hope, another summer of depressing reality. But there is one bright spot: R.A. Dickey, who is chasing a 20-win season with an improbable knuckleball that was developed late in his career. Dickey, one of the subjects of the new documentary, "Knuckleball!" appears to be a thinker as well as pitcher. He has already written a memoir, “Wherever I Wind Up,” and has a deal to write three children's books.

Are the New York Mets planning to sever one more link to their past by trading Ron Darling, who became the senior member of the team when Darryl Strawberry decamped to Los Angeles?One person who would like to know is Darling, who admitted recently that he was confounded by the Mets' master plan and by his role in it.But he does know one thing: He doesn't particularly want to become part of the dismantling of the old Mets. And he doesn't want to get lost in the shuffle of the new Mets.Most of all, he doesn't want to struggle through another year like 1990, when he lost his job as a front-line pitcher, sat in the bullpen half the time, finished with a losing record, underwent elbow surgery and then went home to wonder.

NEW YORK -- Six times. Maybe seven. That's how often New York Mets manager Jeff Torborg lifted his cap and ran one hand over the front of his hairline while waxing optimistic on the Mets' lifeless 5-2 loss to Montreal Expos on Wednesday night. He pursed his lips four times, leaned forward thrice, twice grimaced and -- subject to replay -- glared once, which is particularly significant.This was three days after the post-game dugout shout that followed the Pittsburgh Pirates' sweep, two days after the arms-flailing meeting with John Franco in the outfield and one day after the Mets broke a five-game home losing streak and Torborg conducted his post-game audience while sitting on the front edge of his desk.

Charlotte Rollenhagen still remembers the first time she saw Dorothy Hutchins at Johns Hopkins Hospital. It was 1940, and the 10-year-old girl had been badly burned when her dress caught fire on the kitchen stove in her family's Highlandtown home. Her entire back was burned, as well as part of her left leg and her left arm, which she flapped in vain to put the flames out. "The picture of this little girl is indelibly placed in my mind," said Rollenhagen, who at the time was a rookie 21-year-old nurse.

All across the globe, worried Metropolitan Opera fans, not to mention assorted pundits and politicians, are caught up in the suspense of the company's testy contract negotiations with its many unions. Last night's late-hour reprieve -- management agreed to extend talks for 72-hours, rather than impose a lockout at midnight -- has only revved up the anxiety even more. To provide an appropriate soundtrack for these tense times, I offer one of the greatest examples of musical tension in all of opera, Siegmund's extended cry of "Walse!"

On February 19, 2008, Sen. Barack Obama promised to "fundamentally transform America. " This was no mere rhetoric from the telegenic man who would go on to best Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination. Rather, it was an audacious (to borrow a term) pledge to transform America's economy, culture and standing in the world. Some on the right responded with unfounded allegations against candidate Obama, claiming he was a socialist, closet Muslim or racist. All were off base, but lodged often enough to allow the mainstream press to paint anti-Obama-ites with a broad brush - often laced with its own hint of racist innuendo (This defense mechanism continues to act as sword and shield for the president and Democratic leaders in Congress.

One by one, they came to the microphone and made their case: The Maryland Renaissance Festival is fun, but it doesn't belong in a rural community. The festival annually attracts to Crownsville about 300,000 visitors who gobble smoked turkey legs, guzzle mead and are enchanted by jousters, musicians and artisans in a replica of an English village under the reign of King Henry VIII. Organizers say the festival has become a victim of its own success and needs more room to accommodate traffic, revelers and vendors than the 130-acre site can provide.

To some degree, the 1969 Mets' 27-game improvement was foreshadowed by their losing 37 one-run games in '68, when Tom Seaver and Jerry Koosman had made them better than most knew. The teams looking for a lift after not winning their share of one-run games in 2010 include the Tigers (16-26), Cubs (22-32), Red Sox (22-26), Cardinals (20-22) and Angels (24-25). … Lou Piniella 's agreement to work as a special assistant for the Giants is a one-year deal, which will be revisited after the season.

Since May 2, boaters and anglers trying to use a Gunpowder Falls State Park parking lot in Kingsville have encountered a padlocked gate. Signs in English and Spanish flanking the gate say the Jones Road lot is closed through Sept. 1 to “allow the park's natural resources to recover from heavy use.” “We were noticing over time that the carrying capacity at Jones Road was being exceeded,” said Sarah Witcher, northern-area manager for the park. “Way more people were coming than the area was originally designed for, and as a result, it would have a number of impacts both on the environment and the surrounding community,” including littering, trampled plants and cars parked on neighborhood streets.

Though the governor's race has already featured attack ads, the state's top candidates focused more on their own platforms than their opponents' at a Prince George's County forum Monday night. Attorney General Douglas Gansler defended his comments about Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's leadership experience that drew the ire of veteran groups backing Brown. Gansler said he had implied that Brown's time in the military didn't count as a real job. "I didn't say a disparaging syllable about veterans," Gansler said.
