With the help of three Baltimore Sun 1992 All-Metro soccer players, The East Team won the Puma Cup title over the weekend in an event dubbed the first national high school All-Star tournament.They scored just one goal among them in the three-day, four-team affair at the National Soccer Hall of Fame in Oneonta, N.Y., but Shane Dougherty (Fallston); The Sun's All-Metro Player of the Year, Jeremy Baker (Calvert Hall); and Shawn Moyer (North County) demonstrated enough fancy footwork to prove they belonged among the nation's best.

The Puma Store and Journeys Kidz, which had planned summer openings at Arundel Mills, are now open, the mall management said Wednesday.  The outlet stores  join more than a dozen footwear sellers at the Hanover center, including Aldo Outlet, Crocs, Nike Factory Store and Off Broadway Shoes. The Puma Store is located in Neighborhood 3 near H&Mand Modell's Sporting Goods. To mark the opening, the Puma store on Saturday will give $25 gift cards to the first 50 shoppers in line from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Journeys Kidz, a branded children's shoe store with a skateboard-style footwear display and cartoons and music on TVs, is an extension of the Journeys retail concept but targets the 5 to 12 year old age group.

Isaiah Black threw a go-ahead 24-yard touchdown pass to Micah Till with 2 minutes, 14 seconds left, and Wise's defense held off a furious late drive by Quince Orchard to capture its first Class 4A football state championship with a 12-7 victory Friday night at M&T Bank Stadium. Black did not attempt a pass in the first half as the Pumas (13-0) from Upper Marlboro stuck to their run-heavy offensive script, but the junior took over at just the right time in a game controlled by two dominant defenses.

The running shoes are vintage 1982, slightly soiled, clearly worn, with a periwinkle "swoosh against a white background." Two bucks at the swap meet, right?Try again.Eighty dollars.Yes, $80 at Stateside, a used-clothing store in Southern California. These used sneakers are worth more than some styles of new Nikes.Just as used or old Levi's became wearable collectibles in the early '90s, older models of Nike, trailed distantly by Adidas, Converse and Puma, are poised to be the next trend in recycled fashion to arrive in the United States from Japan.

I'm a huge fan of the stair-climber. I use it four or five mornings a week, and it's the only machine I've never lost interest in. Is it true that there are stair-climbing races? Where can I sign up? Stair-climbing races, or "vertical races," do exist. You'll probably have to make a weekend trip to participate, but isn't it worth it to experience the world's skyscrapers at top speed from the inside? Races include the Empire State Building Run Up (New York), the Go Vertical John Hancock Tower Race (Boston)

After struggling last time for an American presence, Volvo Ocean Race organizers announced yesterday that Puma, the international sporting goods company, will enter a boat in the around-the-world competition that begins in October 2008. The entry of Puma, with international headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany, and international public relations based in Boston, casts some doubt on whether Baltimore and Annapolis will serve as a U.S. port-of-call for the fourth time. Officials of Ocean Race Chesapeake, the organizer of the local stopover, say they have not heard from Volvo headquarters whether there will be a change in U.S. stopover.

ABOUT 200 parents and parishioners from St. John's Parish Day School sang songs and buried a time capsule to help celebrate the school's new expansion and renovation. The celebration, which took place Dec. 8, "was a lovely community time," said Anna Puma, head of the school. "We all gathered in the multipurpose building and had songs and a reception," she said. The $7.8 million addition, which took about a year to complete, includes a new building for kindergarten through grade five, and a complete overhaul of the preschool building, Puma said.

The power, size and speed of the Henry A. Wise football team ended Meade's dream season with a nightmare. After two surprising road playoff victories over then-No. 4 Arundel and then-No. 6 Old Mill, No. 5 Meade hoped to keep rolling in the Class 4A state semifinal Saturday afternoon. But Wise used its bulk to take control early and steamroll the visiting Mustangs, 40-0. Wise (13-0) advances to the Class 4A state final Friday at M&T Bank Stadium against Quince Orchard, who edged No. 3 Westminster, 21-19, in the other state semifinal Friday night.

Each week The Sun's  John McIntyre  presents a moderately obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar - another brick to add to the wall of your working vocabulary. This week's word: DEFENESTRATE We are two days away from the anniversary of the Defenestration of Prague. On May 23, 1618, insurgent Bohemians unceremoniously tossed imperial commissioners out the window of Hradcany Castle in Prague, touching off the Thirty Years' War. It was actually the second defenestration of Prague; in the first, in 1419, Hussites killed members of the city council.

Gita Chowdhury was looking for more exposure for her clothing and accessories boutique, dresscode by Gita, during the busy holiday season. Developers of the new Legg Mason building in Harbor East were looking for retail tenants during a slow economic time. Both got what they wanted when the Legg Mason building's ground floor was converted last weekend into "pop-up" stores for five retailers in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Such stores, where retailers "pop up" in temporary locations for short periods, have become more popular across the nation as retailers - including giants such as Target and Toys "R" Us - look for innovative ways to attract shoppers.

The Democratic National Convention that begins today in Denver looks to me less like the coronation of Barack Obama than a soap opera wedding. The kind everyone tunes in to for the fireworks. Will the groom find out that the bride is pregnant with another man's child, or that her husband is not dead but in fact alive in a South American jail? You have to wonder what's going to happen when Obama turns the convention over to Hillary Clinton for the roll call of the delegates that she amassed in their overlong primary battle.

John Lutz has spent 37 years looking for ghost cats. Puma concolor is most often called a puma, cougar or mountain lion. But its more supernatural nickname seems fitting considering Lutz's quest: collecting evidence of the cats in the Eastern United States, from which they are believed to have vanished. National and state wildlife officials say that native populations of cougars disappeared from the East because of hunting and development, except for a small number of Florida panthers, a subspecies.
