The key offensive component to the Orioles' resurgence the past three years has been the ability to hit home runs. They're never out of any game simply because they can change the tone of it with one swing. The Orioles have hit at least 200 home runs in three straight seasons for the first time in franchise history. It's a big part of who they are, but as the club embarks on its second playoff run in three years, there is a question whether their biggest offensive weapon will work in the postseason.

WASHINGTON -- Across the street from the MCI Center, there's a larger-than-life drawing of Chris Webber painted on the side of a building. From the day he was acquired in 1994, Webber was expected to be the cornerstone of the Washington Wizards, but yesterday his stay with the team came to an abrupt end.The Wizards traded Webber to the Sacramento Kings for six-time All-Star shooting guard Mitch Richmond and veteran power forward Otis Thorpe. In effect, the Wizards gave up youth and potential for accomplished veteran leadership -- something that has been severely lacking in recent years, especially this season when the Wizards failed to make the playoffs.

There was a time when such a scene exceeded the imagination of a new generation of Orioles fans. On the fourth floor of the B&O Warehouse, Orioles employees stuffed envelopes with playoff ticket order forms and dispatched them to season-ticket holders Tuesday in the hope and anticipation of an Orange-and-Black October. This is not a unique phenomenon. It's going on all over the major leagues, and the same scene played out the past two years in the Warehouse, but there seems to be general agreement that it all feels more real this year.

It had been a whirlwind day for G.G. Smith, the new men's basketball coach at Loyola, when a phone call interrupted his introductory news conference Friday afternoon. That morning, the Loyola assistant had a final interview with the school's search committee. Around lunchtime, he was summoned to the home of Loyola president, Rev. Brian F. Linnane, who informed Smith that the job was his. The 36-year-old then made emotional phone calls to his wife and mother. But during his news conference at Reitz Arena, he was still waiting for his father to return his call.

It's easy to understand why Westminster senior guard Mackenzie Murray is savoring her time on the basketball court more than many others this season. In each of the past two seasons, Murray suffered torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments, requiring two surgeries (one to each knee) 13 months apart. Murray, also a standout forward on the Owls soccer team, spent 4 to 5 months in physical therapy after each procedure to be able to continue her athletic career. After finishing as one of Westminster's leading scorers on the soccer field this past fall, her third year on varsity, Murray is now doing whatever she can to help the basketball team to a winning season.

When Harford County changed from farmlands to enclaves for suburban communities, it left an impact on many old families, and subsequently the way we spend our Christmases has changed. Long ago, candy and oranges, seldom eaten during the rest of the year for many families, were plentiful for Christmas. There was always an orange in the Christmas stocking. Even in larger families, parents usually manage to scrape enough together to buy new clothes for the children, and maybe a special toy. Jimmy Eustace, who is not around anymore to tell his stories, always remembered the hard candy in barrels at Crooks' Grocery Store on West Bel Air Avenue in Aberdeen - 9 cents per pound!

Padma enters and behind her three familiar faces skulk in. What madness is this? Past contestants already? Josie (Season 2), CJ (Season 3) and Stefan (Season 5) are introduced. My stomach turns when I see Stefan's face.

Saturday's AFC divisional playoff game between the Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers pits two teams who dislike — but love to hit — each other. Whenever there's a throwdown involving these two AFC North rivals, who are separated by 249 miles (and often very few points), it could lead to a bounty, a death threat or a cheap shot. Quarterbacks have been knocked out of games. A running back has been knocked out for a season. It's an intense rivalry that is so hard-nosed that it has even featured a broken nose.
