To suggest that there has been a reversal of fortune - that after an 11-3 bludgeoning of the New York Yankees on Saturday night at Camden Yards the Orioles and Bronx Bombers have swapped places - would be premature. The Yankees, after all, won the American League East last year, kicked the Orioles out of the playoffs and, despite their injuries and recent struggles, are currently in third place in the division. Yet the gap seems to have shrunk considerably between baseball's ultimate “Haves” and the league's perennial 'Not quite yets.” “I think it's just a testament to how good of a baseball team we are now,” said Orioles starter Zach Britton.

ON THIS FATHER'S Day, consider the seahorse, the mother of all fathers. This delicate little sea creature, valued as medicine in Asian cultures and as key chains in ours, is on display at the National Aquarium of Baltimore, the most successful exhibit in the 21-year history of the aquarium. It is the perfect family outing for Father's Day. That's because the seahorse fathers are the mothers, a role reversal unheard of anywhere else in the animal kingdom, except perhaps in homes where the mother is particularly overbearing or earning a much larger salary.

Audiences share in the evolution of a mentor-protege relationship in Dignity Players' production of Donald Margulies' 1997 play, "Collected Stories. " The play depicts the evolving relationship of two friends over a six-year period. What starts with sardonic writer-teacher Ruth Steiner's first encounter with worshipful student Lisa Morrison gradually transitions into more of a mother-daughter relationship. Then we see fledgling writer Lisa apply Ruth's lessons to spark a growing independence and distance before achieving success.

It's not surprising that the Ravens are 10 1/2 -point favorites over the Kansas City Chiefs, the largest point spread in their favor for a season opener in the team's 14-year history. Fresh off a 2-14 season, the Chiefs have endured a rocky summer, firing their offensive coordinator a week ago and watching starting quarterback Matt Cassel injure his left knee Aug. 29. The Ravens, meanwhile, have rolled through a perfect preseason and appear ready to take that next step - to the Super Bowl.

Starla becomes Dave with the help of a great haircut and some voice training, while Tye uses hair extensions and false breasts to help him morph into Darcy. Ryan transforms himself into Jordan with the aid of a Brazilian bikini wax, as Ary becomes Julian with a bit of false facial hair and a little something extra in her pants. This is reality TV taking on gender in a two-hour A&E cable special titled Role Reversal, and for the most part it's engaging and even occasionally illuminating.

In a move one delegate described as a "role reversal," Republicans in the House of Delegates proposed a populist version of an income tax cut yesterday that they say would put more money into the pockets of middle-class voters than Gov. Parris N. Glendening's plan.The proposal, which would not meet Glendening's goal of lowering the overall income tax rate, was the top item on the House Republican caucus' annual legislative agenda. Much of that agenda is annually tossed onto the legislative scrapheap by the General Assembly's strong Democratic majority.

The red you see on Clemson faces this week is not in honor of Saturday's opponent, N.C. State.The Tigers, it seems, are blushing.On the eve of their Death Valley meeting with the red-clad Wolfpack, the Tigers find themselves a little short of expectations, both their own and those of their notoriously vocal fans. And they find themselves in a college football role reversal they hope to right against N.C. State."When you set your sights as high as we do, sure, it's embarrassing," middle guard Rob Bodine said.

It's probably not realistic to expect every play in the Baltimore Playwrights Festival to be in polished, completed form. Instead, theatergoers should look at the festival -- which this summer unites six community theaters in the common cause of producing new scripts -- as a place to identify promising Maryland writers.That's exactly the reward in the first offering of the festival's 13th season -- Mark Scharf's "Slower Delaware," produced by Harbour Theatre.Scharf, a resident of Gaithersburg, has a number of other produced plays to his credit as well as several awards, according to the program.

PASADENA, Calif. - Chris Antley, a jockey who battled weight and drug problems but won 3,480 races, including the Kentucky Derby twice, was found dead at his home late Saturday, police said. They were investigating the death as a homicide. Antley, 34, died of "severe head trauma," according to the police, who said the motive had not been determined. No one has been arrested. A 911 call was made about 11 p.m. and the caller said a man was "lying inside the house, who may possibly be dead," police said in a statement that was reported by the Associated Press.

BOSTON -- If revenge really is a dish that is best served cold, Sunday's sports menu in Baltimore and Boston could end up looking like an all-you-can-eat sushi buffet. The Red Sox certainly have a score to settle after the Orioles knocked them out of the playoff picture in dramatic fashion last year on the final day of the regular season at Camden Yards. The Ravens would also like to get even after the New England Patriots ended their season with a late score in the AFC Championship Game in Foxboro, Mass.

Conservatives took great relish this week in attacking President Barack Obama for some ill-considered observations regarding the Supreme Court and its role in reviewing the administration's health care reform law. One would think that the nation's highest court had never been criticized before - or that the president's remarks had been something more than political spin in the first place. Two things Mr. Obama said this week clearly weren't true. First, he suggested that it would be "unprecedented" for the court to overturn a federal law. And second, he claimed that health care reform had been approved by a "strong" majority of a democratically elected Congress.

MORZINE, France — On this first 2010 Tour de France rest day, Lance Armstrong rode a historic Alps climb, up the Col de Joux Plane, one of the steepest of cycling's mountain rides. It was a training trip for Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer said. It was not a ride to be taken lightly or done for fun. Armstrong, 38, was working out his kinks, his bumps and his bruises, his aches and pains and maybe his wounded pride. His job for the next two weeks is unexpected. Armstrong will be a helper for Leipheimer.

Eight-year-old Paige Adelsberger couldn't wait to tell her teacher the good news: Her father had just lost his job. Her teacher replied that losing one's job is usually bad news. But not to Paige. The way she saw it, her father would be able to spend more time around the house, even fill in for her mother, Lauren, as Room Mom. Make that Room Dad. This Father's Day, John Adelsberger, a former senior engineer at Constellation Energy, is among scores of laid-off dads who have gone from primary breadwinner to primary housekeeper amid the nation's economic recession.

For a little while, every mom is a fashion-maker. To her small cadre of small admirers, she is "boo-tee-ful," the epitome of fashion, the essence of style.Even her cast-offs are coveted. Her run-down heels are more precious than Cinderella's slipper; her college-era T-shirts sought after as sleepwear; her scarves the stuff of Superman's capes and bride's veils. To look like mom, to dress like mom, makes a little one big stuff.Then, all too soon, mom is the antithesis of fashion.Whatever she wears is wrong.

ASHBURN, Va. -- For the first nine games of the 2006 season, the quarterback meetings for the Washington Redskins were focused as much on starter Mark Brunell mastering the team's new offense as on what might be in store from opposing defenses. With a quarterback who already had played 13 seasons in the NFL, and had been through the NFC East 2 1/2 times while in Washington, there was little that quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor or the team's two other quarterbacks, Todd Collins and Jason Campbell, could offer that Brunell hadn't seen before.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Last season, there were numerous questions about Texas quarterback Vince Young going into the second game of the season - a showdown at Ohio State. While everyone knew Young was a great athlete who could hurt you with his scrambling ability, there were questions about how well he could pass against a legitimate defense. To be fair, there were questions about Texas as a team, too, most notably whether it could win in a hostile environment despite the opponent not having an established quarterback.
