Momentum

SPORTS

All season, the Ravens talked about peaking at the right time. They downplayed their 9-2 start, maintaining that a strong finish to the regular season was what was important. They didn't want to just make the playoffs. They wanted to enter them with momentum, their offense putting up points and their defense putting down quarterbacks. Before walking out of the visiting locker room at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday following a 23-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals to end the regular season, the Ravens were singing a decidedly different tune.

Whew! Another HonFest is now in our rearview mirrors, and the only thing left to remember it by are the persistent feather boa sheddings that seem to get everywhere and are impossible to completely clean up. (That and the embarrassing photos, darn cell phone cameras!) Seriously, at one point during the festival, it looked like someone had taken a lawn mower to a flock of pink flamingos — which this columnist does NOT recommend doing. But during all the hubbub, it was easy to overlook an exciting new dining opportunity that opened the Friday before HonFest — The Food Market, 1017 W. 36th St. It is in the old location of the Hampden Food Market, and the new owners have done a fantastic job renovating the space.

Is this just another game to run out the regular-season schedule for the Blast, which has already clinched first place in the Major Indoor Soccer League's Eastern Division and the top seed for the playoffs? Or is it a vital showdown against the team's oldest and fiercest rival to regain momentum after two consecutive defeats, one a lopsided loss to Saturday's opposition, the Milwaukee Wave? The answer unfolds Saturday night at 1st Mariner Arena when they collide in Baltimore for the first time this season before what could be the Blast's biggest crowd of the season.

CHICAGO -- Once you read the first sentence of this column, its momentum will carry you from paragraph to paragraph until a few minutes from now, you will arrive, blissfully enlightened, at the final word. No, you say? You may stop reading right now, or halfway through? Well, that's a shame. But it does prove something I've long believed: Momentum is a crock. This is the opposite of everything we are told. In the political world, we hear that the Democratic Party has powerful momentum going into the Nov. 7 congressional elections.

It would probably be fair to say that Navy would have preferred a route other than backing into the Patriot League tournament, as it did on Saturday. The team suffered a 14-7 loss to archrival Army, but seized the sixth and final spot in the conference tournament courtesy of Bucknell's 13-1 rout of Lafayette and Colgate's 11-9 decision over Holy Cross. Still, the Midshipmen (4-7 overall and 3-5 in the league) are in the tournament and would love nothing more than to grab a little momentum heading into Tuesday's quarterfinal against Lehigh (10-4, 5-2)

Stuck in their first three-game losing streak since 2009, the Ravens have maintained there is no need to panic because the team has already clinched a playoff berth in the AFC and has a one-game lead over the Cincinnati Bengals for the AFC North title. A win against the New York Giants on Sunday would assure the Ravens of the No. 4 seed and a home contest in the first round of the postseason. Even so, there's a sense of urgency in the Ravens locker room to snap the skid and inject a little confidence into the organization.

Embarrassing as it is to admit, I arrived for a concert at Peabody Institute's Friedberg Hall one week ago two minutes after conductor Hajime Teri Murai and the Peabody Symphony had begun to perform Chen Yi's "Momentum": That I had to listen to its remaining 13 minutes behind closed doors is the reason readers did not see a review.Even behind closed doors, however, the Chinese-born composer's new work made a strong impression."Momentum" is very loud. In a program note, Chen Yi referred to her inspiration as "the power of the ancient [Chinese]

WASHINGTON -- Even before Texas billionaire Ross Perot has declared his candidacy, polls are suggesting that momentum for the political maverick has stalled and that Americans may be having second thoughts about him as the next president.Vice President Dan Quayle, seizing on these latest numbers, said yesterday he believed Mr. Perot's campaign "is beginning to fizzle" and cited as further evidence what he had started to "feel" as he traveled around the country.Taking a swing at Mr. Perot, the current front-runner in the presidential race and the Republicans' most formidable opponent at the moment, Mr. Quayle told a group of radio talk show hosts meeting here yesterday that he believes people are now raising questions about the businessman and his "irrational behavior."

MEXICO CITY -- Barely three months after winning a trade pact that was supposed to catapult his country into the 21st century, the regime of President Carlos Salinas de Gortari looked more like a devastated Humpty-Dumpty last week.With the stunning peasant revolt in Chiapas state still unsettled, the candidate of the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party's (PRI) for president was assassinated at a rally in a poor section of Tijuana on Wednesday night.Many wondered if the momentum toward progress could be put together again, or whether, in choosing a successor to the assassinated Luis Donaldo Colosio Murrieta, the old guard would prevail with its old undemocratic inclinations.

GAITHERSBURG -- Just when the momentum seemed completely gone in the fifth game, No. 5 Perry Hall snatched it back, but the momentum swing did not last long enough to carry the Gators to the state final.Trailing 9-0 in that last game, the Gators (19-5) rebounded to lead 12-10 before Sherwood finally finished off its own remarkable comeback for a 10-15, 5-15, 15-5, 17-15, 15-12 victory in a state Class 4A semifinal last night at Watkins Mill High School."Perry Hall deserves a lot of credit," said Sherwood coach Steve Pisarski.
