Editor's note: A baby robin eats so much he can't make it off the groundto fly south for the winter.At first the little robin was like any other baby bird. Most of him was head and the rest of him was hungry.He ate, and he ate, and he ate, and he ate, until he looked more like a ball than a bird. Everybody called him Round Robin.The other birds fluttered about from tree to tree."Come fly with us, Round Robin," they said.But Round Robin was too fat to fly. When he wanted to go anywhere, he hopped.

SUMMERTIME can be a great time to rekindle interest in a hobby or craft or maybe even explore a new pastime.Members of the Count Your Stitches cross-stitch club have been using the summer months to share a project that has really sparked interest among club members.A half-dozen members of the group are putting the finishing touches on a stitchery project known as a round robin. Each of the participants stitches a themed design in divided portions of fabric to create a sampler for each person stitching in the round robin.

The All Rap Round Robin is far from the average microphone-too-low, DJ-too-loud, consistently tardy hip-hop show. Now entering its fifth year, the gathering of the city's on-the-fringe hip-hop acts will converge Friday night on Floristree. The event will showcase Baltimore's underground rap scene, which appears to be growing, given this year's expansion from nine acts to 12. The Round Robin, which was formed by longtime friends and rappers Dan "Height" Keech, Mickey Freeland and Bob Jones, is unusual because it lacks a headliner.

At the completion of the round-robin portion of the Cadillac Columbus Cup regatta yesterday, two things were perfectly clear: New Zealand had rallied to finish in first place, and Denmark was firmly in second. From there, the standings were something of a puzzle for a while.Team USA, Japan and Team Baltimore finished the six flights of the round robin with 3-3 records. Of those three teams, only two could make the final four that may race today.As it turned out, based on head-to-head competition, Team USA and Japan were in and Team Baltimore was gone, dropped to fifth place because it had lost to Japan and been disqualified jointly with Team USA on Thursday.

Ed Schrader needed a wider audience. In the past, when the local musician and comedian brought his abstract jokes and songs to other states, few people came to his shows. He was relatively unknown outside of Baltimore and struggled to build a national fan base. Starting this week, that could all change. Schrader landed a spot on the Baltimore Round Robin Tour, the biggest traveling display of Baltimore bands in years. Baltimore's music scene has been getting national exposure for its raw sounds and ingenuity, and a group of local musicians wanted to strike now while they're in the spotlight.

After two days and 40 races, three things are clear: Hannah Swett's team will be in the semifinal round today, six other crews still have a shot, and three crews cannot advance beyond the round robin of the Santa Maria Cup being sailed on the Inner Harbor.Swett, of Jamestown, R.I., won four of five races she sailed yesterday and is in first place with a 7-1 record. Even if Swett loses her final match of the round robin today against Dawn Riley of Detroit, Swett will still have the best record among the 10 teams.

The All Rap Round Robin has become a refreshing staple of Baltimore's underground hip-hop scene. That tradition continues Friday night at Floristree, and it's only getting bigger. Now in its fifth year, the annual showcase expands to 12 acts from last year's nine. (Thirteen if you include Secret Weapon Dave, the night's DJ.) That's a lot of performers, and you'd be forgiven for not knowing all of them. You can read my primer on the night's bill here . It'll be published in Wednesday's b and in the weekend edition of the Sun. Words can only do this unique event so much justice.

With the first round robin of the Louis Vuitton Cup over but not forgotten, the 11 teams challenging for the America's Cup quickly got down to the business of streamlining the four-month elimination series to determine who will sail against Team New Zealand in February.In the skippers' post-round meeting Friday, the issue of postponements was raised by several teams, including America True, one of five U.S. teams in the regatta.At issue is rule 14.4 of the Louis Vuitton Cup Conditions. The rule is intended, in part, to allow disabled boats to request time for repairs before the start of a race.

In a tough match, Kerry McCoy knows what it takes to come out on top. Take, for example, last year's World Cup championships at George Mason University's Patriot Center in February. McCoy entered his 286-pound match tied at 10 points with Russia's Oleg Khorpiahov in their bids for gold medals, but the former two-time NCAA champion at Penn State calmly handled the pressure. The shorter, swifter McCoy led a tight bout 1-0 with 1:55 remaining before scoring a three-point takedown to blow open the match en route to a 4-0 decision.
