“The ' American Idol '  auditions are in a … boat, I'm guessing?” wondered one Idol hopeful. A very large one at that, as the San Diego auditions of "Idol" were held aboard the USS Midway, complete with jets flying above ("Top Gun," anyone?). Now, let's take a look at the auditioners… A “patriotic” Jennifer Diley kicked things off wearing a bikini top and a barely there pair of shorts. After climbing the steps twice just to make sure Ryan Seacrest got a good look, Jennifer sang in front of the judging panel with a blah performance.

Sam Farrell was not necessarily looking for a coaching job when she was hired in January to lead the South River girls lacrosse team, just weeks after former Seahawks coach  Kim McNemar stepped down. Farrell, a Severna Park graduate who played at Florida, said Thursday she wasn't necessarily looking for her most recent opportunity, either. After one season coaching South River, Farrell decided this week to join San Diego-based Mad Dog Lacrosse as a camp director and coach.

When the Ravens signed veteran cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Dominique Franks last week after successful minicamp tryouts for both, it was viewed as even more unlikely that they'd make a serious run at Pro Bowl cornerback Brandon Flowers who had surprisingly been released by the Kansas City Chiefs. Looking to upgrade their cornerback depth, the Ravens had some conversations about adding Flowers, but ultimately others teams coveted the 28-year-old more. One of those teams, the San Diego Chargers, have agreed today to a one-year deal with Flowers, according to multiple reports.

Former disgruntled Ravens left offensive tackle Jared Gaither may have worn out his welcome in San Diego as well. During his stay in Baltimore, Gaither was often criticized for his work ethic, especially during the offseason. Apparently, the pattern for the former Maryland standout continues. A San Diego columnist gave him the much-deserved nickname of "The Big Lazy. "

Orioles right-hander Freddy Garcia is expected to start Wednesday's afternoon game against San Diego. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Sunday that he hadn't decided whether to start Garcia or right-hander Jason Hammel on Wednesday. Monday's off day gave him that luxury. But the pitchers will remain in order, with Garcia starting Wednesday and Hammel starting Friday against Tampa Bay following another off day on Thursday. Garcia, 36, will get the opportunity to start against the team that released him in spring training.

I watched Ray Lewis do his final dance as a player on the field at M&T Bank Stadium immediately after the final play of the game ("Ray's day," Jan. 7). That was great to see. He is leaving the game on his own terms. I hope his head and his heart are in the right place, and that 20-plus years of hard-hitting football has left his brain in reasonably good condition. Baltimore's fans, individually and collectively, need to be aware of warning signs of ill health and be prepared to take better care of Ray Lewis than San Diego took care of our retired star linebacker, Junior Seau.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.  - While growing up in San Diego, Orioles center fielder Adam Jones idolized Tony Gwynn as a player, then later gained greater admiration for him after getting to know the Padres Hall of Famer as a person. So the news of Gwynn's death Monday at age 54, after a four-year battle with cancer, hit Jones especially hard. "I've known the man for most of my adult life, so it's tough when someone passes like that, especially the impact he'd had on not just myself, but on countless major leaguers, and just people in general, in the San Diego community," Jones said.

The pair went into the Hall of Fame together - Gwynn, the voluble hitting wizard, and Ripken, the indestructible shortstop. They seemed to admire each other as much as the crowd appreciated them both.
