Mike Muldoon always wanted to play quarterback, but until this season, the Salisbury State junior receiver never had gotten the opportunity -- anywhere.That changed on Oct. 5, when starter Kris Kershaw and backup Jeff Dolch both went down with injuries at Catholic. Muldoon, who had taken some snaps in practice, played the closing minutes, and he's been more involved since then, appearing in Salisbury's last two games and going a combined 9-for-22 for 99 yards.In the Sea Gulls' most recent game, Nov. 2 against Bethany, he was called upon in the first quarter after Kershaw injured his shoulder.

The sun was bright and hot, but the waters of the Chesapeake Bay were icy as the Brendan Sail instructors launched a small sailboat at Annapolis Sailing School in Edgewater. "Yeee-oww," Riggs Brusnighan, 15, howled as he waded into the shockingly cold water to scrape off the winter's rust. Classes start soon in America's sailing capital, and there is no time to waste. They say every child who grows up in Annapolis should learn to sail, and there are probably enough sailing schools here to accommodate them all. But the Brendan Sail Training Program is different.

After numerous failed attempts to build his 13-year-old son's confidence and self-esteem through football and baseball, James Muldoon noticed something.Jimmy, who was severely learning disabled because of complications during birth, had mastered the art of sailing with little effort.Right lesson, wrong methods."Poor Jimmy got a baseball in the lip a couple times before I was smart enough to realize that he didn't see the ball coming fast enough," said Muldoon, 57, an avid sailor and vice president of the United States Sailing Association.

If the term "b'hoys" and "muldoons" resonates with you, you're showing your age. Last week, The Sun used the word "muldoon," in a story about Maurice R. "Mo" Wyatt. Wyatt had been Gov. Marvin Mandel's legislative lobbyist, appointments secretary and keeper of the "Green Bag," from which hundreds of patronage jobs were dispensed during the 1970s. His name rocketed back into the news after former state Sen. Thomas L. Bromwell Sr. mentioned the former dapper Annapolis insider in boozy revelations to an FBI informant in an upscale restaurant.

For the 29th year, the Howard County Poetry and Literature Society will take audiences away from the cold and gray of winter with lively Irish tunes, fast-moving step-dancers and colorful poetic imagery. The society's annual Evening of Irish Music and Poetry on Friday night at Jim Rouse Theatre in Columbia will feature a reading by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon, who has built an international reputation with his inventive use of language and imaginative themes. Muldoon said by e-mail that public readings are an extension of his work as a poet, critic and teacher.

For the crew of the Donnybrook, the race begins even before the start gun fires. As skipper Jim Muldoon steers the 73-foot sailboat through Spa Creek, the crew struggles with the sails and lines, positioning them for the moment when the Donnybrook will be powered only by the wind. First they have to get to Buoy Marker 2, the start line for the 70-mile, overnight St. Mary's College Governor's Cup Yacht Race. And they are down a crewmember - Pat Kilbride never made it to the dock in Annapolis; he was stuck in traffic en route from Washington.

Ben Collins can't hide his glee this week as he awaits the biggest sailing moment of his Special Olympics career. The Rockville resident will have a chance to compete for the first time in the Governor's Cup Yacht Race from the entrance of the Annapolis Harbor to the shores of St. Mary's College late the next morning. That's right. Overnight. Quite an undertaking for any sailor but even more challenging for one who is legally blind like Collins has been since he was 8 and came down with retinitis pigmentosa.

Dr. Fred Lewis and his wife, Mary Agnes, have had horses grazing on nearly 100 green, rolling acres in Clarksville since they bought their farm 17 years ago. But tomorrow will be the first time at the farm - and possibly ever in the county - that spectators will cheer horses and riders charging after a ball in a polo match. The couple said a little trampled grass and playing host to several hundred visitors seemed like a small investment to raise money for Catholic Charities' Our Daily Bread, a daily hot meal program in Baltimore.

Paul Muldoon was thrilled to learn yesterday that he'd won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for poetry. It meant that someone actually had read his verse. "Most people know that poetry is not particularly popular," he said in a telephone interview. "There are so many great poets out there who can't get their stuff published. Maybe winning this prize will mean that a few more people will read my book." Moy Sand and Gravel is the most recent work by the 51-year-old Irish expatriate. The son of a laborer and a schoolteacher, Muldoon's writing has been praised for drawing on traditions as diverse as Gaelic legends and Native American trickster myths.

The rain was relentless, and the prospect of an overnight 70-mile sail from Annapolis to St. Mary's City was becoming a dubious pleasure. Taking shelter under the Spa Creek bridge, my shorts soaked, my shoes waterlogged, the rain pouring down my neck, I looked over the pontoons of the Annapolis Yacht Club's annex toward the 73-foot dark green hull and 91-foot raked black, carbon mast of the sloop Donnybrook. There was no sign of life aboard. Then a similarly drenched figure in red weather gear dashed toward the boat.
