There's something distinctive about Montreal, a city that sets itself apart from the rest of North America -- and it's not just that the Body Shop reinvents itself as Le Body Shop. It's in the architecture, an urban whip of Italian Gothic; French graystone; Victorian rowhouse; and modern, global glass and steel. It's in the food, a casserole of influences from all over Europe, Africa, Asia and beyond. It's in the people, not just sons and daughters of France and England, but from all over the Gallic universe (Haiti, Vietnam, French Africa)

A one-of-a-kind oboe belonging to a musician with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra was reportedly stolen outside a Montreal hotel Tuesday morning. With the BSO season starting in less than a month, she's anxious to get it back. “We all are very wedded to these instruments,” said Katherine Needleman, principal oboist for the BSO. “It's very special to me. It's the only one like it.” Needleman said the oboe was a prototype, made by Yamaha while she was working with the company in developing a new model.

MONTREAL -- They come from the fashionable west end, and from the western provinces, making a pilgrimage of sorts.Back to the old neighborhood, back for a taste found nowhere but Mile End.Bagels.White seed or black seed. Or, these days, cannelle (cinnamon) et raisin.But always made the old way, rolled thin by hand and baked in wood-burning ovens that provide a distinctive flavor."Whether you're French or English, bagels are Montreal food. They're a bridge, a meeting point," says Michel Zampa, a former Mile End resident who recalls buying dozens of bagels and putting them on a bus bound for relatives hundreds of miles west, in Windsor, Ontario.

A week after a RAW filled with returns and new storylines, RAW from Montreal this week featured storyline development and in-ring action. The main angle for RAW revolved around the main event at Battleground, as John Cena, Roman Reigns, Randy Orton and Kane danced around each other all night. RAW started with Reigns coming down to the ring to cut a promo saying that he can be the one to stop Cena. He's definitely been getting more comfortable on the mic as time passes, as he was able to control the crowd, and play to them, in the promo.

MONTREAL -- Not even Montreal's emergency services could prevent the Blast from winning last night's National Professional Soccer League game between the American Conference's top two teams. Playing before 2,253 -- largely the city's police officers, firefighters and ambulance personnel -- the Blast scored the game's first nine points and then hung on to beat the Impact, 15-11. "We had a terrific start, and although Montreal has a good team, it becomes hard to catch up when you're behind that early," said Blast forward Erik Rasmussen, whose unassisted goal 35 seconds into the game opened the scoring.

MONTREAL -- You've heard the old joke about going to a fight only to have a hockey game break out.So perhaps it's fitting that in this, the cradle of hockey, the Blast and Montreal Impact would be party to a floor full of skirmishes at the conclusion of Baltimore's 25-14 loss last night.The wild scene, which featured jersey-pulling and hog-tying but few actual punches, was the culmination of tensions that had been building for most of the second half, in which Baltimore was outscored 17-7.

MONTREAL -- A dismal season reached its midpoint for the Orioles last night. For its deservedly frustrated No. 1 starting pitcher, it coincided with a breaking point.Handed a 3-1 loss at Olympic Stadium against the Montreal Expos in exchange for his solid seven-inning start, Mike Mussina said what others have only thought during a 37-44 season. No longer comfortable with rationalizations, Mussina said he is "relatively concerned" that a veteran team has become conditioned to losing."We haven't put up much of a fight the last couple games," Mussina said.

MONTREAL -- The good times don't roll on forever. For the Blast, which came into Montreal yesterday afternoon riding a seven-game winning streak, the good times were, for the moment at least, interrupted with its 22-20 loss to the Impact in a clash of division leaders. Eight players scored for the Blast, led by Denison Cabral, who netted three goals for his eighth hat trick of the season. Chris Stathopoulos also had three goals, and chipped in a pair of assists to lead Montreal. The Blast might have been forgiven if it had started off sluggishly, considering the trouble the team had getting to the Centre Claude-Robillard, the Impact's new home.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Before Michael Lewis' book "Moneyball" hit the best sellers list and before Brad Pitt brought Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane to the big screen in the Academy Award-nominated film of the same name, the concept of building a small-market club through shrewd acquisitions, farm system strengthening and an obsession with on-base percentage had already been featured north of the border. Arguably, the first incarnation of the Moneyball concept occurred in Montreal in the early 1990s.

Merriweather Post Pavilion has announced its first summer concert of 2012. It'll be the indie band Foster the People. The band, out with debut album "Torches," will play June 10. The album has already been certified Gold by the RIAA, which is probably why they're getting to play a stage as big as this one with only one album to their name. Tickets, at $45, are already on sale. O.A.R., which played Merriweather in August, is playing it low key with its first pair of shows next year.

On an afternoon in early October, I sat in a pew in an old church and took in Mass. A woman dressed all in white sang a soothing hymn, and then a priest in an intricate, green robe read from a prepared sermon; behind him, an imposing pipe organ dominated the sparsely-crowded room. I didn't understand a word. The service, the song, the Bible - everything was in French. This was the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal, a nearly 200-year-old gem that's been the site of state funerals and, perhaps as notable, Celine Dion's wedding.

The puck drops on the NHL season on Thursday night when the Boston Bruins crank up their 2010-11 Stanley Cup banner to the rafters before their home opener against the Philadelphia Flyers at the TD Garden. The Capitals had the skills to hold such a celebration this fall, but they didn't show as much heart and grit as the Tampa Bay Lightning in last year's playoffs and were swept to Washington-area dance clubs after Round 2. Washington general manager George McPhee resisted the urge to make radical changes to his roster.

Wings' last shot at glory Helene Elliott Los Angeles Times The cardinal rule of NHL forecasting is never pick the San Jose Sharks to win the Stanley Cup. They've been a popular selection the past few seasons but they've tripped themselves up every spring — and will this season too. The Vancouver Canucks seem to be the consensus pick in the West, but their lack of team toughness leaves them vulnerable....

MONTREAL -- A gunman opened fire at a downtown Montreal college yesterday, killing a 20-year-old woman and injuring at least 19 other people, eight critically, before police shot and killed him. Witnesses said the man, in his 20s, with a mohawk haircut and wearing a long black trench coat, started shooting randomly with an automatic rifle about 12:40 p.m. outside the Dawson College campus, near a spot where students gather to smoke.
