While Ryan and Gavin McTavish were growing up in Mount Airy, a chain reaction of three noises routinely came from their household. First, there was the repetitive thump of a bouncing basketball at the hoop near the front curb. Then came equally persistent yapping between the competitive brothers as they played 1-on-1 for hours. That ruckus prompted a third noise inside - the phone ringing. "The neighbors would call and say, 'Hey, I think your boys are fighting,'" said their mother, Maureen.

Michael Hirschbeck, the 27-year-old son of major league baseball umpire John Hirschbeck, died Tuesday, WFMJ in Youngstown, Ohio, reported. Michael Hirschbeck had adrenoleukodystrophy, an inherited condition that affects the nervous system. John Hirschbeck's oldest son, John, was 8 years old when he died in 1993 of the rare degenerative disease. The Poland, Ohio, family's struggle with ALD was told in a series of 1996 articles in The Sun that won a Pulitzer Prize. Lisa Pollak's story, "The Umpire's Sons," recounted a family tragedy that had become a footnote in the feverish media coverage after Orioles second baseman Roberto Alomar spat on Hirschbeck after a controversial call in 1996.

Two time zones and a few thousand miles didn't prevent Eli Manning from seeking some advice about the Ravens defense from a trusted source: his older brother. The New York Giants quarterback admitted that he has already talked to Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning about the Ravens, who absorbed a 34-17 defeat at the hands of the Broncos last Sunday. “I talked to him a little bit and watched the game,” Eli Manning said during a conference call with Baltimore media Wednesday.

Loyola Maryland's Matt Sawyer knows the questions are coming, and he good-naturedly answers every query about playing at the same school where older brother Mike was an integral part of the 2012 national championship squad. But when asked if he is eager to carve out his own identity, Sawyer offers a truthful response like those of us who perform or have performed in the shadows of siblings and relatives. “I would like that,” he said Wednesday. “… I love Mike. Obviously, I'd like to be known as myself, not just as his little brother.

INDIANAPOLIS - The telephone call came earlier this week. It was long distance, and one of Sydney Johnson's big brothers was on the line.Steve Johnson was not calling from Baltimore, where they spent much of their childhood. He was in Belgium, where he plays pro basketball. "One of the things he told me was, 'You're going to beat UCLA like we beat Duke,' " Sydney Johnson, Princeton's point guard and captain, said yesterday. Steve Johnson played on the California team that upset two-time defending champion Duke in the 1993 NCAA tournament, and that game was on Sydney Johnson's mind in the wild, waning moments of Princeton's 43-41 victory over last year's national champion Thursday night at the RCA Dome.

In his first foray in the IZOD IndyCar Series, Stefan Wilson finished 16th at the Grand Prix of Baltimore on Sunday. It was a decent showing for the 24-year-old native of Woodall, England, who drove the No. 18 car. “It was pretty interesting,” Wilson said. “So much to learn. Going into the race, I wasn't sure what to expect. I've never raced an IndyCar race, I've never raced a race longer than 40 laps. So to go and do 75 laps here, I knew it was going to be pretty tough physically.

We are all Boston. It's something we said on Monday, when we were at a loss for words to describe our shared sorrow and horror at the marathon bombings, when we knew no other way to express our solidarity with a city reeling from terrible loss. Four days later, it is something we said as we cheered along with all those gathered on a quiet street in Watertown as police captured the second suspect in the bombings alive, put him in a squad car and drove away. We say it now out of pride for a city that responded to tragedy in a way we all hope we would and brought a terrifying week to a close with a professionalism and dignity that represents the best in us all. We now know just enough details about the two men believed to be responsible for the bombings to invite speculation about what could have led them to commit such a terrible act. The older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was a promising amateur boxer who experienced troubles in this country.

The older brother has always blended easily with people. He built his career over a quarter century, meticulous step by meticulous step. He'll probably smile at you, even if he doesn't like your question. The younger brother's talent burned hotter and to this day, so does his demeanor, which sometimes scorches those who dare get in his way. He reached his current position in great, precocious leaps. If he thinks you're an idiot, he'll treat you like one. Yet somehow - in a story too good for anyone to have made it up - John and Jim Harbaugh will face off as peers next Sunday in the Super Bowl, the grandest stage in the game to which they've devoted their lives.

The text messages started rolling in before Corey Graham even had a chance to settle in front of his locker late Sunday night following the finest game of his NFL career. They came from friends, former coaches and old teammates. They came from people whom he speaks to regularly and others that the Ravens cornerback hadn't seen in years. At one time, Michael Clark fit into both of the latter categories. Clark is Graham's older brother and best friend throughout his childhood. That relationship continued even after Clark was sentenced to prison for five years for possession of cocaine and marijuana with intent to deliver, but left Graham, then a freshman at the University of New Hampshire, feeling like he was on his own. Those days are long over.

As Maryland stumbled its way through the 2011 season, Jarrett Ross watched intently from afar to keep up with his freshman brother's progress and try to gauge whether or not he'd like to eventually join the Terps. Ross, a Charter School of Wilmington (Del.) cornerback and wide receiver, had picked up a scholarship offer from Maryland last summer - one year after Brandon Ross , his older brother by two years, committed to the Terps. While Maryland's 2-10 season was a major disappointment to all parties involved, the younger Ross wasn't dismayed.
