As he pondered the notion that the Orioles had yet to lead a game as they drifted behind the Royals 2-0 in the American League Championship Series, Baltimore manager Buck Showalter stressed Saturday what it had taken just to tie each game. “Sometimes you spend so much energy and concentration trying to get back to that point, it's hard to take that next step,” he said. “But I think about a hundred percent of that is what they're doing, not what we're not doing.” That's exactly the point, maybe more so than Showalter meant even as he aptly spoke to the state of the series entering game three Monday night at Kauffman Stadium … weather willing.

And then there was Etch-a-Sketch. Later this year, Mattel Inc. announced this week, it will close the Oregon plant that has long produced the plastic stereoscopic viewer with the 3 1/2 -inch round picture reels known as the View-Master and move manufacturing to Mexico. That reportedly leaves Ohio Arts' Etch-A-Sketch as the last baby boomer mechanical toy still in production solely in this country. The formerly high-tech toy, introduced to the public at the 1939-40 World's Fairs in New York and San Francisco, has captivated generations of children who peered through the lenses at three-dimensional images from around the world.

The air smelled mossy, the crickets at the lake's edge murmured. Rain came and went, and the sun turned pink before some fat blue clouds squeezed it out of the sky and it disappeared. As night fell. Lights flickered on. Geese skimmed over the water, black as shadows. The moonless sky glowed an eerie orange. And still, the fishermen stayed on the water of Little Seneca Lake. They dotted the shore and 20, maybe 25, boats bobbed on the lake long after dark. Reels sighed, lures thwacked the water.

The TV weatherman predicted 3 to 5 inches of snow for the evening -- not the most exciting news for a fair-weather fisherman. I wandered down to the pier to check out my charter boat, the Catherine M.The sleek lines of the 37-foot Robbins were completely hidden by two lengths of blue tarp, draped over a jerry-rigged frame and held down by water-filled plastic jugs. Catherine M sat quietly at the pier. She was winterized by a professional this year. Will Hild, of Hild's Marine Service, takes the time to do the job right when our schedules won't permit.

Beyond the Rocks [Milestone] $30 For some 80 years, the 1922 romantic drama Beyond the Rocks starring two legends of the silent era - Gloria Swanson and Rudolph Valentino - was considered lost. Only one minute of footage existed at the Nederlands Filmmuseum in Amsterdam. So the catalogers at the Filmmuseum were shocked when they discovered the first two reels of the movie while inventorying a collection of original nitrate reels of films donated to them. For months, the staff went through all the unidentified reels of film and discovered the complete movie.

A - Atlantic City. Right up the road and home to roughly 38,000 slot machines. The casinos' pay-out is reportedly about 91 percent - based on an average annual return, for every $1 you play at slots, you lose 9 cents. At Vegas casinos, you lose an average 5 cents on the dollar, but it's a longer drive. Nickel slots, by the way, have lower pay-outs than $1 slots. Higher denomination equals higher pay-out. B - Bandit, One-Armed. Traditional nickname for slots because of the handle, which is pulled to spin the reels.

It sure didn't taste like tuna from a can. It was storm-tossed tuna -- pulled from the roiling waters of the Atlantic Ocean as Hurricane Felix teased the Maryland coast. It was moist, had the dense texture of tender beef and a rich flavor unlike any I had tasted before.It had come to me over the backyard fence, a gift from a neighbor, Edward Marshall. Marshall, a Baltimore City policeman, shared both the fish and the story of the catch with me.He told me how he and a handful of fishing buddies ended up landing 15 tuna, yellowfin and bluefin, on a boat trip out of Ocean City.

The Cincinnati Bengals were dealt a crushing blow last week with the news that $55 million defensive tackle Geno Atkins had been lost for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Although the Bengals remain atop the AFC North with a two-game lead over the Ravens, the impact of not having a disruptive interior force such as Atkins will likely have a hefty impact on their outlook. Atkins is regarded as a linchpin, leading the defense with six sacks after topping all NFL interior linemen with 12.5 sacks last season.

Long was set to have surgery Saturday night, Edsall added, while Diggs likely will have his operation later this week.

Matt Wieters ended Wednesday night's Orioles victory over Tampa Bay in 1.75 seconds. At least, that's what manager Buck Showalter timed the catcher's catch and throw to second base to nab the Rays' Kelly Johnson stealing and seal a 4-2 win at Camden Yards. As Jose Lobaton swung and missed on a 98-mph fastball from right-hander Tommy Hunter with runners on first and third, Johnson took off from first. Wieters rifled a throw to the first base side of second base. Shortstop J.J. Hardy ran across the base and caught Wieters' throw on one hop, applying a quick tag to Johnson's knee.

Disneyland's new Indiana Jones ride is a real trip, say those who have been on it.Riding on a "troop transport vehicle," visitors swoop and swerve through typical Indiana Jones territory -- the Mummy Chamber, the Gates of Doom, the Tunnel of Torment and the Cavern of Bubbling Death. En route, they encounter such cheerful items as skulls pierced with spears, a falling ceiling of spikes, scads of snakes and rats, and a 16-foot boulder rumbling down at them.

WASHINGTON - A group of hard-core anglers meets every May in the nation's capital to fish for bottom feeders. There's a joke in there somewhere, right? But the mission of these anglers is hardly a joke. The members of the Carp Anglers Group (CAG) are targeting the big ones - rod-bending fish the size of a toddler that rule the Tidal Basin. Last weekend, about 25 of them gathered at the basin for their eighth annual get-together, which almost always becomes a carp tutorial for inquisitive tourists on their way to the Jefferson Memorial or the FDR Memorial.

For Baltimore sports fans, now is the early spring of our discontent. Could it really be that just six weeks ago, we were living in sports fandom ecstasy?
