Ramon Hernandez, Orioles catcher What's your reaction to the end of Miguel Tejada's consecutive games streak? Instead of being sad, be happy for what he did. ... That's really amazing. Nobody likes to get hurt, but as long as you play the game, you take a risk of something bad happening.

Forgive Buck Showalter for displaying a certain ambivalence toward Wednesday's 4 p.m. deadline for teams to make trades without passing players through waivers. There's definitely a fine line there. If you're the manager of a team that went to the playoffs last year and is currently in the second wild-card position, you don't want to be broadcasting that you're dissatisfied with anyone on your roster. So he did his best Tuesday to talk around some of the trade speculation that has attached to his team.

The girls lacrosse game between No. 1 Mount Hebron and No. 4 Roland Park, which was postponed last Friday when only one official showed up at Mount Hebron, will not be rescheduled. Both coaches said they wish the game could have been made up, but Mount Hebron's Chris Robinson took it a step further. "We are disappointed that Roland Park does not want to play us," Robinson said. "I am surprised that a school with a such a good reputation would act in an unethical manner by backing out of a commitment.

There is really only one more appropriate ending for the Ravens' Ray Lewis, and that won't come for another five years when he takes his place in the NFL Hall of Fame as the greatest middle linebacker ever. Lewis, 37, made the announcement Wednesday he will retire at the end of the season, and even though it was a sad day for Baltimore sports fans, it was a great one also. Unlike John Unitas, Baltimore's other immortal football player, Lewis gets to end his career in a Ravens uniform.

Quote: "I didn't know the record streak for the Astros was 23 games. When you play the game, you don't pay too much mind to it." - Tony Eusebio, after tying the record with a three-hit game It's a fact: Braves center fielder Andruw Jones didn't play, ending a 301-game streak that was second-longest in the majors behind the Cubs' Sammy Sosa. Who's hot: Rockies pitcher Brian Bohanon is 6-for-12 with two doubles, a homer and six RBIs in his past three starts. Who's not: The Giants' Barry Bonds was 1-for-8 with five strikeouts in the three-game series with the Phillies.

Coaches Dave Pietramala figured to have the Blue Jays in position to win their first national title since 1987 quickly, and Hopkins is drawing close to the prize in Pietramala's third year. Widely considered the best defenseman to ever play the game, Pietramala has a deep, versatile offense and a defense that has allowed an average of six goals in its past seven games. That consistency could be decisive against a Syracuse team that can be as sloppy as it is exciting. Orangemen coach John Desko inherited a tremendous program from Roy Simmons III five years ago and hasn't missed a beat.

Mr. Flip's rant Mr. Flip likes his pro football. Mr. Flip likes the Super Bowl. However, like Cartman did in that one episode of South Park where he froze himself because he couldn't wait until the Nintendo Wii came out, Mr. Flip sometimes wishes he could be put in suspended animation for two weeks and then unfrozen just before Super Bowl kickoff. There just isn't that much to say about a single game. And despite what the innumerable talking heads might lead you to believe this week, planning for this football game doesn't rank up there with strategizing for D-Day.

One of the big selling points for computer games these days is how "real" the action on the screen is. But after playing a simulated Super Bowl this week using some of the latest technology, all we can say is "get real." It's not just the score that bothered us (or scores, that is; after the Ravens fell by three points, we tried it again, and they lost by seven). It's that the digitized game bore little resemblance to what is expected to happen this weekend at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. For the record: We ran the "Madden 2001" football game on a Sony PlayStation.

Republicans in Maryland often wonder why they lose. The letter sent last week by Michael Steele and Audrey Scott to Maryland Republicans urging them to vote for expanded gambling is a perfect example of how the party solidifies its minority status. In it, the former Republican National Committee chairman and lieutenant governor and a former Maryland GOP chairwoman rally the troops for crony capitalism as if they were wearing Halloween masks of Senate President Mike Miller and Gov. Martin O'Malley.

Standing in the living room of his mother's Belair-Edison home late one summer evening, Allan Chaney raised his plain white T-shirt below his collarbone. He had just been asked to show his chest, to reveal the remnants of a more than two-year ordeal that threatened his life - let alone the once-prized recruit's basketball career. Directly over his sternum lies a 3-inch scar, a byproduct of last March's surgery to remove abnormal tissue surrounding his heart. But the scar tells only part of Chaney's story.

“Wolfenstein 3D” is the “Seven Samurai” of first-person shooters. Without the proper context, it seems like something sparse and ancient. In its simplicity, though, rests a mechanical genius that lead to two decades of shooters that continue to flourish today. To celebrate 20 years since its release, Bethesda Softworks' website is hosting a browser-based version of the game for free . In addition there is an extensive director's commentary available from John Carmack, co-founder of id Software, the game's original developer.

If Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Corey Patterson had to pinpoint a reason why he's had success so far this season it would be because he no longer worries about what might happen. It's a philosophy he perfected last April, when he was unemployed and working out at home. Eventually, the Orioles called and offered him a minor-league job with no promises. He accepted, made it to the big leagues in mid-May and stuck all year, playing 90 games and hitting .269 with eight homers and a team-high 21 stolen bases.

Theresa Jenkins has coupons down to a science. She knows which stores double and triple them, which let her "stack" manufacturers' and store vouchers on the same item. She holds onto coupons until the goods are on sale, then buys in bulk — from the sort of checkout clerk least likely to hassle her about her great savings. "I tend to pick the youngest boy, a teenage boy," said Jenkins, an Abingdon mother of four. "It's a thing about couponing moms: A teenage boy doesn't care what you do. … He just wants to scan the coupon and get you out of there.

When I read about an effort in the Baltimore City Council to obtain corporate sponsorship for city buildings and property, I could not resist making a list of possible new appellations and potential partnerships for our town. One of the first pieces of municipal property that came to mind was the Shot Tower. Perhaps I thought about it because I can see it from my desk, if I lean back in my chair as if I am taking a snooze (a posture I often assume in the late afternoon). From my vantage point, not much has been happening at the tower other than an American flag occasionally flying atop it (which was, at one point earlier this year, inexplicably replaced with a smiley-face flag)

Chris Whitney, the Washington Wizards' all-time leading three-point shooter and the last remaining Washington player who wore a Bullets uniform, was traded yesterday to the Denver Nuggets for small forward George McCloud, with the regular-season opener next Wednesday. Whitney, a nine-year veteran who spent the past seven seasons with the Wizards, appears to be the victim of a logjam at point guard, where Washington had three other players (returnee Tyronn Lue, free agent Larry Hughes and rookie Juan Dixon)

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Cal Ripken's recent offensive tear has created an intriguing possibility within a collapsing schedule. Should the Orioles third baseman continue to close on 3,000 career hits during the remainder of this nine-game road trip, would the Orioles consider "resting" the Iron Man so the accomplishment might occur during the season's final six-game homestand?Manager Ray Miller, who has elevated Ripken within the batting order and discarded an earlier plan to periodically give him days off, downplayed the idea.

Syracuse has lost the past two to Virginia in the regular season, but the Orange has won the past two national championships.

WASHINGTON - -Everywhere Mike Green looked during the Washington Capitals' recent three-day visit to Vancouver, the high-scoring defenseman was reminded of the question that has consumed him since summer: Will he, or won't he, make Team Canada's final cut? The four Olympic rings and the words "Vancouver 2010" adorned everything from billboards to taxicabs. Every other story on sports television, it seemed, focused on the approaching Games. Each morning after practice, a gaggle of reporters gathered around Green's locker room stall at GM Place to capture his thoughts on the matter.
