Recording an entry in the Coast Guard log is usually a staid affair. But once a year, on New Year's Eve, some writers show their poetic flair. This year, the tradition of applying verse to the midnight log - normally a matter-of-fact accounting of the day's events - fell at the Curtis Bay Coast Guard station to Petty Officer Stephen Park. "It's not often it gets published or gets submitted into a poetry contest," Park, a humble bard, said of the New Year's Eve rhyme. "Everyone just gets a giggle out of it."

"Bloodlines," by Fred D'Aguiar. The Overlook Press. 161 pages, $24.95. Fred D'Aguiar's novel-in-verse, "Bloodlines" is a brilliant venture that almost succeeds. It takes the reader on a wild voyage tossed by love, sex and violence; it's funny, satirical, serious. It's like a documentary done in Errol Flynn-movie style. It can be so poignant the reader aches -- or so off-the-mark the reader cringes. The big risk, obviously, is writing an "issues" novel -- "Bloodlines" tackles the consequences of U.S. slavery -- in verse: strict ottava rima (each stanza consisting of eight iambic pentameter lines end-rhymed abababcc)

Think the trash-talking in Tampa has gotten nasty? Take a peek in cyberspace. On the message boards of RavensZone.net, the team's online home, fans were mixing it up in a fury of foul language, twisted grammar and non sequiturs.

NORMAN, Okla. -- When Coppin State coach Fang Mitchell made out the Eagles' 1990-91 basketball schedule, he wanted one that would toughen his team for a hopeful repeat trip to the NCAA tournament.So he scheduled road trips to New Mexico and Oklahoma. "I heard New Mexico and Oklahoma were the toughest places in the nation to play," Mitchell said, "the most hostile crowds. I guess we should've gone to Missouri."Oklahoma's Lloyd Noble Center, filled with a scattered and lethargic crowd, may have been particularly surprised by the Eagles' mettle.
