But when the Bullets put the game away in the fourth quarter, it was the reserve point guard who was on the court running the show."Special teams, baby," Overton shouted just after the Bullets improved to 4-1 with a 109-99 win over the Heat. "Kickoffs, punt returns, whatever.

LANDOVER -- Shaquille O'Neal sat out last night's game at USAir Arena with a sore left knee, so it figured that a point guard would have a major role in the Orlando Magic-Washington Bullets game. It's just that no one figured that the point guard would be Doug Overton.But Overton played the game of his three-year career and scored 30 points, including a key layup in overtime that helped the short-handed Bullets beat the Magic, 123-117, before a sellout crowd of 18,756.Yes, the Bullets dressed just eight players.

Amid the fanfare over Tom Gugliotta's 39-point, 15-rebound performance in the Washington Bullets' 126-109 rout of the Utah Jazz on Saturday night, it was easy to overlook the solid contribution of another rookie -- Doug Overton, who had 21 points and 12 assists as the Bullets (4-5) won their third straight.Big things were expected of Gugliotta, who was the sixth player selected in the June NBA draft. But Overton, who spent last winter in the Continental Basketball Association after being cut by the Detroit Pistons, and then gravitated to Australia this summer, has been a surprising bonus.

Overcooking is what kills asparagus for most people. Memories of gray, limp and pungent spears follow wary eaters like ghosts from a nightmare. But when treated right, asparagus is a versatile and complex vegetable. Its flavor profile can switch from green and grassy to sweet and nutty just depending on how it's cooked. That's why so many chefs love to put this "grande dame of spring" on their menus. Ben Simpkins, the executive chef at Richardson Farms in White Marsh, makes an asparagus "cappuccino," in which a cup half-filled with hot asparagus soup is topped with cold asparagus foam made by shooting the cold soup through a whipped-cream gun. "I love asparagus, and this is my favorite dish," says Simpkins.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — Some will rip Jeff Overton for playing speed golf Sunday. They'll say he phoned it in — perhaps concerned about roaming charges — and didn't care enough to shoot better than a 7-over 79, his worst score of the week by five shots. But in this age of laborious pre-shot routines and five-hour-plus rounds, we applaud a man for completing 18 holes of a major in 2 hours, 9 minutes, an unofficial PGA Championship record. When the Associated Press' Doug Ferguson gave Overton the news, the 27-year-old Indiana native replied: "Awesome!

Mayor Martin O'Malley named a new head of the city Department of Recreation and Parks yesterday, despite strong objections from 17 City Council members who wanted to retain the current director. Marvin F. Billups Jr., a division chief for the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission in Prince George's County, has been nominated to take over for Thomas V. Overton in late October. Although Overton was one of four finalists for the position, O'Malley said Billups' range of experience over 33 years gives him the vision needed to rejuvenate a troubled city agency reeling from a decade of budget cuts.
