The last time the Navy men's soccer program made the NCAA tournament, none of its players had even been born. Although the Midshipmen (15-3-2) will make their first appearance in the tournament since 1988 when they meet Virginia Commonwealth (11-7-2) in a first-round game Thursday, coach Dave Brandt does not think the enormity of the contest will intimidate his players. Brandt pointed out that Navy has been in playoff mode since earning the top seed in the Patriot League tournament.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Remember in the good old days before Sept. 11, when the psyche-probing question was: "Who would you rather have baby-sit your children, Bob Dole or Bill Clinton?" That was also before Monica Lewinsky, by the way, but never mind. It's the shallowness of the question rather than the answer that strikes one's memory of fancy. Deeper questions are circulating today, such as this one from a Zogby International poll: "In a time of crisis, who would you rather have in the White House, Bush or Clinton?"

St. Mary's is in the midst of one of the program's best seasons since Chris Hasbrouck became the head coach prior to the 2009 campaign, and one of the key factors has been the team's success in one-goal games. The Seahawks (9-5 overall and 4-1 in the Capital Athletic Conference) are 3-1 in one-goal decisions in 2013. The last time the team thrived this well in one-goal games was Hasbrouck's debut year when that squad also went 3-1. In the three years between 2009 and 2013, St. Mary's compiled a combined record of 2-3 in one-goal decisions.

Tagged by many as the No. 1 team in the country at the start of the season, the Calvert Hall boys lacrosse team has already had to deal with its share of pressure and adversity. Coming off an upset loss at McDonogh on Friday and then watching their lead dwindle to one goal in the third quarter of Tuesday's showdown against newly appointed No. 1 Gilman, the No. 3 Cardinals were in a position to either slip a bit more or rise to the occasion. They did the latter, responding to their latest test was a six-goal scoring binge that sent them to a satisfying 11-8 home win over the Greyhounds.

In eight years with the Orioles, did B.J. Surhoff ever crack a smile? Surely, he had cause. It was here, in mid-career, that Surhoff: (1) found his home-run swing, (2) finally landed an All-Star berth and (3) twice helped the Orioles to the playoffs (1996-97), where they haven't been since. Through it all, Surhoff's grim visage never changed. Hit a homer, jump for joy? Not him. "I remember that one reporter said my expression was 'dour,' " he said. "I had to look that one up."

How often does this defense, the near-legendary Ravens defense, find itself in the shadows of its offensive counterpart? Even on a day like yesterday, when that offense managed to be uncommonly clever and efficient yet still shoot itself in the foot time and time again? The fans at M&T Bank Stadium were fully justified in chanting, "Let's go Flacco," yesterday, in light of what he did to the Cincinnati Bengals in his NFL debut. Had the fans squeezed in a few choruses of "Dee-fense" along the way, though, that wouldn't have gone unappreciated.

Even more than his love of gadgets, more than his appreciation of the comic-book ethos that inspired Iron Man, director Jon Favreau's success in bringing the Marvel Comics superhero to the big screen came down to his success as a mediator. Consider the creative forces he had to bring together. There was Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., an actor of unquestioned talent and commanding presence, but one weighed down by a personal life that hasn't always been his greatest asset. There were the folks at Marvel Comics, gatekeepers of the Iron Man mythology since his creation in 1963, who were bankrolling their first movie (after depending on others for such mega-franchises as Spider-Man, X-Men and Fantastic Four)
