Strolling within a mile radius of Verizon Center Wednesday night must have made for an unusual sight: Thousands of young girls walked in the same direction - donning royal blue, synthetic wigs - and hoisting posters that read “Roar” and “It's my birthday” and “KatyCats.” Wednesday night marked pop queen Katy Perry's second night in D.C. for her Prismatic World Tour (she played here Tuesday, and kicked off the tour in North Carolina over...

It was the Ravens against the Chargers and my first pro football game to cover for The Sun. I couldn't believe my eyes when Ray Lewis came out on to the field before the game began. There was music playing and he began to dance and roar. As I watched Lewis put on his show, the nervousness I felt at first went away. I realized that this was an entertainment, a big fun event. I took some shots and caught this image of Lewis giving his all, the fans and the smoke in the background. It seemed to catch the spirit of the moment.

The 7th annual OC Air Show finished its first day to the applause and cheering of the thousands who showed up to watch the aerial acrobatics up close. They were not disappointed. The air show is a weekend long celebration of aeronautic precision and death-defying flight maneuvers that are proof of the expertise and dedication of the pilots involved. From a head-to-head stunt performance by Gary Ward and Greg Connell to the air ballet that is the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, there was more than enough excitement to go around.

Sitting at the kitchen counter, playing a game on his mother's cellphone, Nick Brooks looked like any other 13-year-old, except for an occasional hand clap and the burbles that his brothers affectionately call "Nicky noises. " Soon, he got bored with the cellphone and motioned for the laptop on his mother's lap. Jean Brooks was willing to give it to him, but with one caveat. "I'd like a sentence from you," she said. "Mom's computer, please," Nick said. That's a long sentence for the Roland Park youth.

WASHINGTON -- The concept of momentum is one that politicians cherish. They are convinced that campaigns ebb and flow as a result of the way candidates conduct themselves and sometimes because of outside events -- even one such as a hurricane.The phenomenon was never clearer than in the past seven days. A week ago President Bush came "roaring out of Houston" -- in the favored phrase then -- on the wave of a convention that had been the focus of political news. There were new opinion polls showing Bush had cut sharply into the pre-convention lead held by Democratic nominee Bill Clinton.

Three hundred thousand bikers spent Memorial Day weekend roaring around Washington in tribute to our war dead, and I stood on Constitution Avenue on Sunday afternoon watching a river of them go by, waiting for a gap in the procession so I could cross over to the Mall and look at pictures. The street had been closed off for them and they motored on by, some flying the Stars and Stripes and the black MIA-POW flag, honking, revving their engines, an endless celebration of internal combustion.

Letters, calls and the roar of the crowd:John O. Herrmann, attorney at law, Baltimore: For a long time I have been annoyed and agitated at the repetitious use -- or misuse -- of the trendy phrase "could care less" when the person making such a statement meant exactly the opposite of the correct meaning of those words.On a number of occasions, I have taken the opportunity to attempt to point out the absurdity of this statement by sending the illiterati who pronounce them the enclosed analysis:"Could care less.

PHILADELPHIANS called him the Lion of Zion. The Rev. Leon H. Sullivan, who died Tuesday at age 78, earned that title. His voice against injustice roared in his adopted city's downtown office buildings. His roar shook South Africa's apartheid establishment. Mr. Sullivan served as pastor of the large and politically active Zion Baptist Church in North Philadelphia, where the 6-foot-5-inch preacher delivered booming sermons. But it was his work away from the pulpit that moved America and the world.

God knows, I'm not perfect," the character called Sir says repeatedly in the musical The Roar of the Greasepaint - The Smell of the Crowd. And, heaven knows, this 1965 musical by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley isn't perfect, either. Although it has a score packed with such catchy songs as "Who Can I Turn To?" and "A Wonderful Day Like Today," its plot is a heavy-handed allegory about the game of life, which is played out on stage - literally, on a giant gameboard. Neither this show nor Bricusse and Newley's previous allegorical musical, Stop the World - I Want to Get Off, gets produced much anymore.

With an 18-2 win Sunday over the host Pennsylvania Roar, the Blast claimed the Major Indoor Soccer League regular-season championship. The win gave the Blast (17-3) the No. 1 seed in the MISL playoffs. The Milwaukee Wave (16-4) lost to the Missouri Comets, 9-4, on Sunday, allowing the Blast to take first place in the league. The Blast's game started slowly, as midfielder Max Ferdinand got the Blast on the board first off an assist from midfielder Drew Yates (Maryland). Ferdinand scored another goal before the end of the first quarter, giving the Blast an early 4-0 lead.

It's easy to understand why the Blast might have taken the Pennsylvania Roar lightly, given its slow start Friday night. Going into the game, the Blast had beaten the Major Indoor Soccer League expansion team in their first four meetings by a combined margin of 90-7, including two rare shutouts. Maybe it was because of a 12-day layoff in between games. Or maybe it was the early start time - 7:05 p.m. instead of the typical 7:35 p.m. at Baltimore Arena - that made the Blast's offense a no-show for more than a quarter.

After outscoring Pennsylvania by a combined 74-2 in its three previous meetings this season, the Blast faced a much different Roar team Saturday night, one more committed to blocking shots and defending its goal. Pennsylvania kept four players behind the ball and put a forward just above midfield as a target for counterattacks. Playing its second game in as many days, the Blast overcame some early struggles to pull away for a 16-5 victory before an announced 4,585 at Baltimore Arena.

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia - With an uncharacteristic roar of approval from more than 1,300 people packed into every cranny of the gleaming, white-columned Philharmonia Hall, the Morgan State University Choir made its Russian debut last night at the fifth annual International Winter Festival, Arts Square. The choir set its warmly blended, disciplined tones on George Gershwin's opera Porgy and Bess, the finale of a program devoted to that composer, a favorite of festival founder and artistic director Yuri Temirkanov.

Litmus test for whether or not you'll enjoy "Roar":Its hero, a fourth-century Celtic warrior, wears an earring.But if you can get past such affectations, "Roar," debuting at 9 tonight on Fox (WBFF, Channel 45), is a lot of fun, a sort of "Star Wars"-meets-"Beowulf" mutation with a debut episode that borrows heavily from "Romeo and Juliet."The series, up for a 13-episode tryout (it's not part of Fox's fall line-up), is set at "the edge of the known world," a place we know today as Ireland (which explains all the Irish music heard throughout the show)
