On Sunday, Baltimore Rowing Club Director of Youth Rowing Judd Anderson stood up during the service at his church to give an announcement. But while he began to share the news that 17 of his rowers will attend this weekend's USRowing Youth National Championships in Sacramento, Calif., Anderson began to choke up. It's the most rowers the club has ever sent, but that's not the only reason Anderson became emotional. In 2011, he began a program through the club named Reach High Baltimore: Rowers Empowering Baltimore Youth as a way introduce inner-city students from sixth to 11th grade to the sport.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- It must be clean living. How else do you explain Sacramento's luck with the Raiders?Talk about close calls. I still get chills when I recall how the city almost handed Al Davis $50 million a couple of years ago. The cash wasn't an equity share in a proud old franchise. It was a finder's fee, a bribe to Dirty Al for gracing our community with his warmth, wit and playoff potential.Just think. Had Davis accepted the dough and moved the Raiders to Sacramento, we would be duty-bound to shell out $38 for tickets to see Todd Marinovich throw interceptions.

The daughter of an NBA player or coach must make certain sacrifices. The league's time commitment could hardly be more demanding. Maryland freshman guard Lexie Brown is a realist. She knows that her father - Sacramento Kings assistant coach Dee Brown - would have a difficult time breaking away from his team to watch Lexie and the Terps in Sunday night's Final Four game against undefeated Notre Dame in Nashville, Tenn. But she remained hopeful. “Every year since about 10th grade he's really missed a lot of my basketball seasons, but he's always managed to make it to the state playoffs and now the Elite Eight game,” she said Thursday.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Better late than never, I always say. Walt Williams missed training camp and might not feel like a member of the Sacramento Kings' royal family until Christmas. But at least he's in the building, which is more than I can say for Billy Owens.As someone who still wonders how Owens would have looked in a Kings uniform, I applaud the work that went into convincing Williams to sign his six-year, $13.38 million contract. But I've got to ask: What's with these rookies? Throw money at them and they act like they are doing you a favor by taking it.A couple of weeks ago, I was ready to believe the Kings would trade the former Maryland star.

Nothing exciting ever happens in Sacramento." That's the oft-repeated rap against California's state's capital, which has the misfortune of being so near and yet so far from tourist magnet San Francisco, just 90 freeway minutes away. The put-down was repeated -- and then rebutted -- by former Sacramento TV anchor Stan Atkinson, emcee for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's recent inauguration. Nonsense, he said, pointing out that Sacramento is home to the NBA's Kings and "now we're command central for Arnold Schwarzenegger.

David Stern can climb back in off the ledge. The Lakers have lived to see the second round of the playoffs. Faced with an elimination game way before anyone had ever imagined, the Los Angeles Lakers never were in danger of choking away their season last night. With Shaquille O'Neal giving an Most Valuable Player-like performance, the Lakers played like the same juggernaut everyone saw in the regular season and all other remaining playoff teams fear. By blowing out the Kings, 113-86, in Game5 of their first-round series, the Lakers advanced to meet Phoenix in the conference semis, with the opener on tomorrow here at Staples Center.

Despite playing in one of the NBA's smallest markets, the Sacramento Kings had become one of the league's most recognizable franchises. The Kings were known for their purple uniforms and passionate fans at Arco Arena, but they were also known for being Chris Webber's team. That's why last week's trade sending Webber to the Philadelphia 76ers was so shocking to his teammates and to a tight-knit community that considers the Kings family. But in becoming the face of the franchise, Webber might have also become something else: the fall guy for a team that had perennially fallen short.
