As a part of last month's Best Bars collection in The Baltimore Sun, "25 superlatives for Baltimore bars," the award for "Best Orange Crush" was pinned to a Canton favorite, Portside Tavern. And I, for one, was immediately disgruntled. It's not that I need to be right (but I like to be right). But this is a dire situation - the very fiber of your social life is at stake here. So listen up: You're missing out if you belly up to Portside solely for their crushes. Don't get me wrong - Portside's version is a strong, solid variation on a Maryland favorite.

Last fall, Timonium - home to the state fair and a head-spinning number of chain businesses - welcomed a city favorite, Ryleigh's Oyster. Since then, the Baltimore County version (it calls itself Ryleigh's Oyster Hunt Valley) of the Federal Hill staple has seen steady crowds regularly fill its tidy, well-designed space. On a recent Friday evening, with the location's one-year anniversary weeks away, Ryleigh's hummed along at an appropriately brisk pace. It was the end of the workweek for many in the area, and both bar areas (one near the front entrance and another in the back)

As the Orange Crush club volleyball team gets ready to meet its first opponent at the USA Volleyball Junior Olympic National Championships today in Atlanta, the feeling should be familiar. This will be the fourth consecutive year that team members have competed on the national level. Comprising some of the Baltimore area's top players, such as Tara Stradling, The Sun's Player of the Year, Kayani Turner, Stephanie Kines and Emily Berman, the 18-and-under team hopes to go all the way this time.

"I've been up since 3 in the morning studying true equations," he says. "Now I wish I'd paid more attention in high school. " If Baltimore had a Walter White, it might be Tim Riley, beverage director for Bagby Restaurant Group. Except his sorcery is legal and his mission pure of heart: to provide the citizens of Charm City with a summer go-to cocktail uniquely our own. Add in a few buzzwords like carbonic acid and house-made orange-infused vodka, and really watch us swoon. Actually, Riley only needed to utter four words before I was hooked: Bottled.

Every summer, I am reminded of the gigantic crush I have on the Crush. You know, the fruit-juice-and-vodka-cocktail that's known as a Baltimore specialty. You can find them all over city, usually in the Orange Crush variety. But Orange can be a little, well, boring. And so, like a lusty teenage girl might, I drop it quickly when a new, more interesting flavor comes along. This year, my fling is with the Blueberry Acai Mojito Crush at Ryleigh's Oyster in Federal Hill. Ryleigh's has become the gold standard of Crushes, though several city spots claim theirs to be its birthplace.

Volleyball coach Ian Blanchard has a knack for turning not-so-tall teams into winners. Last fall, he guided Dulaney, with no player taller than 5-feet-10, to the state Class 4A championship. Now, his Time Out Orange Crush 16-and-under girls club team, with no one over 5-10 1/2 , is headed to the USA Volleyball Junior National Championships July 1-5 in Louisville, Ky. The Orange Crush is the first Time Out club team, sponsored by Time Out for Sports, to qualify for the junior nationals.

Playing together on the nationally competitive Orange Crush club volleyball team, Stephanie Kines, Emily Berman, Stephanie Heard, Jen Wylie and Bruna Fonseca have forged a close friendship, but one day a year all that changes. When the Baltimore County volleyball championship rolls around, their loyalties are split as they take sides in one of the fiercest rivalries in county sports. Kines, Berman and Heard play for Towson. Fonseca and Wylie play for Dulaney. Every year since these five seniors were freshmen, their teams have squared off in the county title match.

MIAMI - Down the road, Maryland's football program should be better for its Orange Bowl experience. But the learning experience was humbling last night, as the No. 6 Terrapins received a 56-23 beating from fifth-ranked Florida before 73,640 at Pro Player Stadium. The here and now was a display of dominance by the Gators (10-2), who overcame the disappointment of a loss to Tennessee at the end of the season and the distraction of quarterback Rex Grossman's surprise benching because of a curfew violation.
