So, how tough is it to become a professional bowler? Not xTC very.Not very hard to get the card from the Professional Bowlers Association, that is. To hit the pro tour trail and prosper, that's another thing.Ask one of the top bowlers in the Baltimore/Washington area who has carried a pro card since 1983. Ask Howard Marshall."If you decide to go on tour you should have a two-year plan," he said. "Your sponsor, if you're lucky enough to have one, should know that because it's going to take one to two years before there's going to be a profit."

Jason Chapman skated through the tough times. He had first gotten on a board after watching Michael J. Fox ride behind cars in Back to the Future. And he thrilled to the counterculture that was skateboarding in the 1980s. But like most of his compatriots, he was caught off guard by an economic downturn that caused many venues to close and left even the sport's biggest stars broke and looking for work by the early 1990s. In those bitter years, Chapman and his buddies nursed their passion by gathering at the square in Fells Point to skate all day every day. It was their only outlet.

To anyone who says catching a fish is just a matter of luck, Glenelg High School senior Ben Dziwulski has a challenge. Give it a try, he says. Use my equipment, sit in my boat, come out on the same reservoir or pond as me, and by the end of the day, let's see who catches more fish. And to anyone who doubts whether Dziwulski will reach his goal of becoming a professional fisherman, he says: Watch me. Dziwulski, 17, is realistic about a goal that, at first blush, seems more like an excuse to play than a viable career path.

For 10 years, Baltimore's Steve Krulevitz knew what it was like to feel the soft lawns of Wimbledon under his feet. Now, he spends these two weeks in late June and early July running his tennis camp at the Gilman School, as he has for the past 11 years. Krulevitz, 49, left the pro tour in 1984, but the memories of the most celebrated tennis event in the world are still fresh in his mind. The most vivid image: driving to the courts of the All England Club and seeing the fans lined up on the side of the road for tickets - for more than a mile.

Wade Johnstone started playing squash in his native Australia when he was 3 years old. In the 28 years since, the sport has left him exhausted, frustrated, lonely, perpetually broke - and very happy with it all. Last week, Johnstone finished his daily workout and slouched in a chair at the Bare Hills Racquet and Fitness Club in northern Baltimore, where he has been the head squash pro for more than eight years. Six white-walled squash courts with glass doors sprawled in front of him. His office, which is little more than a desk and burgundy swivel chair, sat behind him. “This is my second home,” the 31-year-old said with a laugh.

If you count all the fat guys trying out their new fitness club memberships and the women who stop by for an oops-excuse-me game before aerobics class, nearly 8 million people in this country play racquetball. Much of it is so ugly you wouldn't watch if a gun were held to your head.There is a classic racquetball scene in the movie "Splash" in which John Candy, after lumbering wretchedly after a few shots, suddenly sits down on the court, cracks a beer and fires up a Marlboro. This is what the game can do to you.But to see the artistry of the sport, to see it played at its highest level, go watch the Third Annual VCI Maryland Open Racquetball Championships, which will begin today at Merritt Athletic Club in Security.

Baltimore's harbor isn't exactly the Aegean Sea off the coast of Greece, but it did a pretty good imitation yesterday as thousands of people cheered on a men's pro beach volleyball tournament worthy of the Olympics - including the essential buff bodies, beach music and free-flowing beer. Organizers of the Toyota Pro Beach East tour hauled 200 tons of golf-course-grade sand into Rash Field to turn the south side of the Inner Harbor into a virtual beach. And the timing couldn't have been better, with the international spotlight turned on volleyball because of the wild popularity of the matches - and the physiques of the players - in Athens this month.
