ORLANDO, Fla. -- A year ago, the Ravens' contingent arrived at the NFL owners' meetings riding a wave of emotion. About a month and a half earlier, the Ravens finalized a stunning playoff run by beating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII and to capture the organization's second Lombardi Trophy. In the days that followed, they enjoyed the highs of a grand parade and the lows of watching part of the nucleus of the team get torn apart through retirements, trades and free-agent defections.

Seniors Dan Crowley and Mark Orlando have tormented opposing defenses for the past two years, and they got their farewell seasons at Towson State off to a rousing start yesterday.After a shaky first quarter in which the Tigers' offense bogged down, one of the top passing combinations in school history lighted the fuse that produced a season-opening, 32-16 victory over Buffalo before 2,144 at Minnegan Stadium.Buffalo's defense held its own against a Towson State attack that returned only four starters from last year's record-setting unit.

I'll tell you who isn't afraid of Virginia Woolf. Sally Potter isn't. She's taken Woolf's strange novella "Orlando" and turned it into a shimmering extravaganza, an exploration of what it means to ** be male and female and British -- at the same time! -- over a span of 400 years.The delirious "Orlando" opens today at the Charles and follows its hero/heroine through four centuries of peculiarity with a great deal of wit and verve. It has more energy in its delicate pinky than does the entire torpid, $30-million mass of "Rising Sun."

Mark Orlando's improbable college football career has come to a fitting conclusion.Four years ago, Orlando made Towson State's team as a walk-on, then spent his first season as a redshirt, when he was rated last among 10 wide receivers on the team's depth chart.Yesterday, after having become the greatest wide-out in school history, Orlando was named a Division I-AA First Team All-America.Orlando, teaming up almost exclusively with quarterback Dan Crowley over four seasons, rewrote Towson State's receiving record book in helping the Tigers to an 8-2 record each of the past two seasons.

The lifelong Annapolis resident was 59. "He literally wrote the book on Annapolis and its 18th-century architectural history," said Pete Lesher, chief curator at Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels. "He was one of those persons whose reputations literally did precede him. When I first met him, I expected a button-down look.

It's always interesting when a team reaches a new, uncharted level of awfulness. And in the NBA this year, that team is the forlorn Charlotte Bobcats. Monday night, in a desultory 28-point loss to the Washington Wizards, the 7-57 Bobbies inched closer to an epic level of futility. If they lose their final two games -- at Orlando Wednesday, home the next night against the Knicks -- they'll end up with the worst winning percentage in league history. (In case you're wondering, the atrocious 1972-1973 Philadelphia 76ers finished 9-73 with a .110 winning percentage.)

  At the ungodly hour of 5:30 this morning, they step off the Walt Disney World Half Marathon in Orlando: the lean, serious speedsters and the dedicated plodders and the fat guys in Mickey Mouse ears just hoping to make it to the first water stop. Among them will be 28-year-old Georgia Cleland, a small woman from Ruxton with a ready smile. And you can bet she'll be smiling today, because hers might be the best story in the entire field, a three-hankie tale of a family's love and a father's crazy idea that raised millions for cancer research and spawned the whole running-for-a-cause movement.

Second of three articles about visiting attractions in the Orlando, Fla., area for the first time. I was waiting in line for the gates to open at Universal Studios Florida when I got my first exposure to Disney envy. The gate attendants started chatting up the crowd. They teased little kids, asked grown-ups where they were from -- you know, the sort of things that keep people from getting restless and crabby. One of them approached the guy behind me and said, "What are you doing wearing that Mickey Mouse hat?"

No sooner had Mark Orlando set foot on Towson State's campus than he had an impertinent question.Turning to another player during that first day of football camp in August 1990, Orlando asked, "Who's that old guy over there talking to everybody?"Phil Albert, he was told. Football coach Phil Albert, then just 46 years old.Clearly, Orlando arrived at Towson with as little knowledge of the coaching staff as the coaching staff had of him. He considered himself a "preferred walk-on," or, as new coach Gordy Combs calls such a marginal player, "a recruited non-scholarship player."

There are 7 million people in the U.S. who have diabetes and don't know it and nearly 80 million who are in danger of developing diabetes. The tragic and untimely death of former Baltimore Ravens player Orlando Brown can be viewed as a warning to the millions of Americans to ask their health care provider to test and monitor closely for diabetes. This is particularly important if you have one or more of the risk factors: family history, high blood pressure, age (over 45), being overweight and/or leading an inactive lifestyle, and ethnic predisposition (Hispanic/Latino, African-American, Native American, Asian-American, Pacific Islander, Alaska native)

Former Raven Orlando "Zeus" Brown was remembered Friday as a force on the football field, a jovial character who liked to have a good time and a devoted father who would do anything for his five kids. Memories of the 6-foot-7, 370-pound offensive tackle were shared at his funeral at Mount Ennon Baptist Church in Clinton. Hundreds of family members, friends and former teammates gathered to say goodbye to Brown, who died last month of complications from diabetes at age 40. Former Ravens players Ed Hartwell, Michael McCrary, Jonathan Ogden, Wally Williams, Brad Jackson and Sammy Williams sat side by side in pews toward the front.
