Mike Sawyers shot a 120-pound black bear this season, then turned around and added a 20-pound turkey to his freezer. That man's better than a Whole Foods deli department. Sawyers, the outdoors editor at the Cumberland Times-News, was missing from the Mount Nebo check station during the opening days of bear season for good reason. He was one of the 240 people selected in the lottery for a hunting permit. Sawyers reports that he saw nothing the first two days. But on Oct. 28, as he climbed an old logging road on the eastern side of Dan's Mountain in Allegany County, he nearly ran into his bear.

A day after the Detroit Tigers bullpen imploded in Game 1, the same cast of relievers was again responsible for an eighth-inning meltdown that sent the Orioles on the road with a 7-6 win and a 2-0 lead in the American League Division Series. "It's certainly a little tough to swallow," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "When you have a three-run lead going into the last couple of innings, you feel like you should get the job done. But we didn't. " The Tigers bullpen returns to Comerica Park after a disastrous two-day stretch in which it allowed 11 runs (10 earned)

WASHINGTON -- Use of the largest conventional bomb in the U.S. arsenal -- the 15,000-pound "BLU-82" -- in recent allied air attacks on Iraq is part of an intensified effort to shake enemy troop morale before the expected allied ground offensive, officials said yesterday.Warplanes began dropping the massive bomb, also known as a "daisy cutter," last week and are expected to continue during the ongoing phase of softening up Iraqi troops for the anticipated allied ground assault.The weapon is detonated a few feet above the ground and flattens everything in its large blast radius.

The campaign trail has been kind to Larry Hogan's waistline. The Republican nominee for governor has managed to shed at least 25 pounds this year as he has hit the pavement, knocking on doors and running - yes, running - down parade routes, campaign aides said. "I'm on my feet running around," Hogan said. "You burn a lot of calories. " For evidence of the fitter and trimmer Hogan, look no further than his face, which has slimmed significantly since the 58-year-old Annapolis businessman declared his candidacy in January.

Police were called to the home at 6:20 p.m. Saturday and spent hours trying to capture the animal.

SEATTLE - In recent years, the Orioleshave experienced plenty of these games in September, when a contender demolishes and demoralizes an overmatched also-ran playing out the string. Almost exclusively, though, the Orioles were on the wrong end of those beatings. Not now, however. Not in this crazy season. The upstart Orioles pounded the Seattle Mariners, 10-4, Monday night, amassing 15 hits and chasing starter Hector Noesi with just one out in the second inning. “Everybody is kind of just picking the next guy up. If someone doesn't get it done, the next guy does,” said first baseman Mark Reynolds.

By the end of Day 2 yesterday, Orenberg's catch had been drastically devalued."Today was unreal," tournament organizer Chuck Motsko said last night. "Just absolutely unreal."First, Doug Salter of Chester came to the scales at Harbour Island Marina with a 287-pound blue marlin.

As the Orioles enter the final month of the regular season, their accomplishments are starting to mount along with their win total. They currently have the second-best record in baseball and a nine-game lead in the American League East division. And as the calendar turns to September, they even can claim a magic number of 19 to clinch their first division title in 17 years. Meanwhile, the Orioles continue to let their bats lead the way, hitting three homers - including a grand slam from shortstop J.J. Hardy that capped a seven-run sixth inning - in a 12-8 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday afternoon in front of an announced 40,905 at Camden Yards.

New research suggests that Americans aren't obese because we eat too much. It's because we exercise too little. And by too little I mean, not at all. And whatever exercise we get peaks before the age of 10 - and perhaps as early as 2 - and is in steady decline after that, according to another study. Researchers at Stanford University Medical Center examined 22 years of data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, a long-term project of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

When Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco handed the football off and threw swing passes to Ray Rice this spring, he had a close-up view of the three-time Pro Bowl running back's physical transformation. Rice had regained much of his old quickness, displaying an ability to run away from defenders that all but disappeared during the worst season of his NFL career last year. Rice has lost roughly 20 pounds since last season, when he weighed as much as 225 pounds while struggling with hip and quadriceps injuries that robbed him of his ability to elude pursuit or break tackles.

WASHINGTON -- Joel Chiles remembers taking his youngest son, Ian, to a carnival many years ago. Ian was 10 years old, and he wanted to play the basketball game in which you win a prize for a certain amount of made shots. Joel gave Ian three $1 bills to play before he turned to talk to some friends. As time passed, Joel noticed that Ian kept shooting. "I'm thinking to myself, 'I only gave him three dollars,' " Joel Chiles said. "So I went over there to see why he was still shooting, and the guy running the game said he kept letting him shoot because Ian had such a pretty shot.

As soon as my daughter got engaged, a wedding weight loss campaign was launched. Mine. She wasn't far behind me. She signed up for something called "cross fit," and she has been complaining of pain and soreness ever since. She might not be any thinner in October, but my guess is she'll be able to throw a kettle ball the length of the aisle, should it be necessary to do so. Rob Kardashian's exit from his sister Kim's wedding spectacle after the family reportedly ganged up on him about his heft is evidence that this misery isn't just for women anymore.

It would have been enough for the announced 5,021 at Harry Grove Stadium on Sunday for Frederick's 4-1 win over Wilmington to see the Keys top a prospect-laden Blue Rocks team. But then the game ended, and things got really exciting. The Keys arranged for a helicopter to fly over left field and drop 100 pounds of candy onto the outfield grass, capping off a diverse weekend of promotions for the Orioles' High-A affiliate. Friday was "Girls Night Out," which featured a diamond dig in the infield after the game.

In a meeting hardly anyone could have imagined a few years back, BALCO founder Victor Conte and World Anti-Doping Agency chairman Dick Pound sat down yesterday for their first face-to-face discussion about doping in sports. During the two-hour meeting in New York, they didn't discuss specific cases or name names, but had what both termed a frank conversation they hope will lead to a more productive relationship. "We talked about ... his thoughts on how we could get better at what we do," Pound said.

With debris from last week's deluge still littering the Inner Harbor, a big new weapon is poised to take on the rafts of floating trash that routinely gross out Baltimore's waterfront visitors and residents alike. A "water wheel" designed to scoop up 50,000 pounds of flotsam every day debuts Thursday in the channel between Piers 5 and 6, where the Jones Falls empties into the Northwest Branch of the Patapsco River. Its backers hope it will make a serious dent in the torrent of garbage that's flushed into the harbor whenever it rains, besmirching the city's watery showcase.

I have never understood why there aren't more big goalies in college lacrosse. No, I'm not talking about the blobs that eat up space and can block out the sun because they consume multiple cheeseburgers. I'm referring to more of a finesse game where the goalie has size and decent quickness, but more importantly fast hands and good positioning. Loyola Maryland's Jack Runkel comes to mind. "As far as shot selection, they will hesitate," the 6-foot-3, 245-pound Runkel said about the influence of big goalies on shooters.
