The scene at Linstead Pier in Severna Park on Wednesday night looked more like a family reunion or pizza party than a yacht club. Maybe it was the comfortable banter between the 50 or so sailors, or the fact that they were standing on a poorly lit dock, not in a clubhouse. Or maybe it was the stack of pizza boxes piled up in a corner. While the casualness might not appeal to everyone, an evening of boat racing and take-out dinner is exactly the type of event that members of the Round Bay Sailing Association relish.

It is searching for old post cards that depict local beaches and resorts to "bring back pleasant memories of the carefree days of yore," as Jack Mellin, the project's initiator, puts it.

It had to be the most exciting 20 minutes of baseball in the San Francisco Bay area in several years. Two sites. Two of baseball's biggest stars. Two heart-stopping comebacks.The Oakland Athletics and San Francisco Giants don't usually play at home at the same time, but they each opened a home series Friday night in dramatic fashion. Barry Bonds hit a sudden-death three-run homer to carry the Giants to a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres. Twenty minutes later and a few miles across the bay, Oakland first baseman Mark McGwire hit a game-ending grand slam off former Orioles closer Lee Smith to carry the A's to an 8-5 victory over the California Angels.
