A man's got to move to shed the tightness of winter cabin fever. A punch of strong color and high-performance design can pump up the energy in a spring fashion season that is otherwise marked by neutral colors and loose, relaxed cuts. Top designers are working the gyms for inspiration and are copycatting the look of track warm-ups, team jerseys and racing stripes. These are not the shiny, vanity-fashion-plate models of the health club '80s, but clothes born out of a competitive spirit.Designer label or sport-shop logo, it's a new way to play the fashion game.

Rick Snider of Biglerville, Pa., was the top winner in the grand-prize drawing at the Maryland Fishing Challenge Finale last Sunday, walking away with a boat, motor and trailer from Bass Pro Shops and Tracker Boats. "Aside from my kids, grandkids and wife, this is the most awesome thing to ever happen," said Snider, who qualified for the drawing by catching an Angler Award-qualifying 40.5-inch striped bass off Breezy Point in Calvert County from his sailboat. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources presented more than $70,000 in cash, prizes and merchandise at the celebration of fishing attended by more than 2,000 people, including sponsors, contestants and their guests, at Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis.

Dan Rodricks ' column "Nobody asked me, but . . . " (Nov. 12) is dead on, at least about the Owings Mills Mall. I agree that the mall doesn't need to be redeveloped and that, as Mr. Rodricks says, "the whole thing was a big mistake" from the start. I remember when the site was zoned as a watershed and wetlands area. But then it was rezoned to permit the mall's construction, and eventually came housing, roads, grocery stores, fast food chains and gas stations. Is it possible that a pro-jobs, pro-business guy like me could agree with a liberal, anti-business, anti-capitalist journalist like Mr. Rodricks?

As we prepare for the bicentennial of the Battle of Baltimore next week, a decent respect for historical accuracy demands attention to a few details.  They are drawn from Steve Vogel's well-researched and eminently readable Through the Perilous Fight: Six Weeks That Saved the Nation  (Random House, 534 pages, $30).  Admiral Alexander Cochrane, anchored about two miles down the bay from Fort McHenry, ordered the bombardment to begin at 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday, September 13, 1814.

I've had a crush on one of my associates at work for years. He's a hunk. We're going to a conference in Puerto Rico this spring, and it could be the big moment for us. Now for the reality:He loves the beach. I'm thick-waisted and big-busted, and I need some help in the bathing suit department.What type of swimsuit should I look for?"A one-piece with tummy control." That's the first advice I got from Miriam Ruzow of Gottex of Israel.She adds:"Try on suits with stripes. Stripes can work wonders in hiding figure faults.

When I was in my early 20s I had a black-and-white pantsuit that I just loved. Then I married, had two children and put on weight. Now after six months of dieting I am back to my original 130 pounds. As a reward I want to get myself another striped pantsuit. But every time I try one on my husband says I look like a jailbird. Should I give up?Of course not. A striped pantsuit is young, dashing and always looks modern. That's why so many designers like stripes and keep using them in different width and color combinations.

I have a rack full of polka-dot ties. It has become something of a joke in my office. But I don't like striped ties; I have a scar and I think they accent it. Other than dull, one-color ties, in what direction can I go?You can choose from a whole range of patterns. And in 1992, neckties have changed so much that your choice is wider than ever before.For years I stressed in my lectures that a businessman should not own a tie that didn't have a "name," such as a solid, a foulard, a polka-dot, a stripe, a club, a paisley, even a plaid.

THE WAVE of patriotism lifting the country to a height unseen since the 1940s has American consumers turning to the flag as brand - the chosen symbol and badge of honor. Americans have wrapped themselves in it, as if it were a red-white-and-blue blanket. Taken it out of the attic trunk where it was kept folded, suppressed deep down under their worn 1970s Earth shoes. There it rested, buried ever since Abbie Hoffman wore it as a sign of rebellion on his sleeve. Hidden, the flag lost its brand appeal.

June 14 is Flag Day, the day in 1777 on which the Continental Congress adopted the first stars and stripes as the official flag for the new nation.The flag as we know it today came into official being by an act of the 15th Congress in 1818.Aside from knowing that the 50 stars represent 50 states, not many of us realize that each of the segments of the flag has special meaning in heraldry.The red denotes hardiness and valor. The red means the suffering at Valley Forge. The courage of those daring pioneers who braved harsh winters and blazing summers as well as hostile Indians to cross vast mountain ranges to settle and open the West for future Americans.

Lawrence "Daniel" Murphy, 37, of St. Michaels pleaded guilty Friday to illegally harvesting striped bass from the Chesapeake Bay. He served periodically as a helper on the Kristin Marie between 2007 and 2012 with Tilghman Island watermen Michael D. Hayden, Jr. and William J. Lednum. In early 2011, he, Hayden and Lednum attempted to harvest more than 20,000 pounds of striped bass using illegal, unattended and unmarked weighted gill nets fish around "Bloody Point" on the bay before the season was opened.

To get your Fourth of July off to a swinging step, I just had to share what must be the coolest version of John Philip Sousa's famous march "Stars and Stripes Forever. " Recorded in 1939, this brilliantly swinging blast from the past is by the big band of Baltimore's own Chick Webb, one of the greatest talents in jazz history. Crank up the volume and set your patriotic toes tappin'.

Have you ever looked at your Orioles hat collection and wished you could find a gaudy red number to add to it? Major League Baseball has you covered. This year's "Stars & Stripes" hat, presumably to be worn in Boston when the Orioles take on the Red Sox at 1:35 p.m. on the Fourth of July, is an improvement on last year's gray number. Check out the link to the MLB shop here . The red hat, which features a navy blue brim, and a blue-and-white Oriole bird inside a star-shaped flag, at least shows fans who are going to shell out $37.99 that they're getting a hat distinguishable from the original lid. Gaudy as it may be, it's actually not a terrible look.

The 5-11 record attached to the UMBC men's basketball team is troubling and frustrating and perhaps avoidable. The Retrievers were ranked 302nd out of 345 Division I teams in free-throw percentage, converting 64.4 percent (224-of-348) as of last Friday. They haven't finished a season above 70 percent since the 2010-11 campaign when that squad sank 70.7 percent (345-of-488), and the team's inability to take advantage of free throws is worrisome to coach Aki Thomas. “It's a concern,” he said Monday.

Striped bass reproduction in Maryland waters improved this year, but remained well below average, state officials announced. The Department of Natural Resources said that its 2013 striped-bass juvenile index, a measure of spawning success in the Chesapeake Bay, is 5.8. That's much better than last year's tally of 0.9, but only about half the 60-year average of 11.7. “Several years of average reproduction mixed with large and small year-classes are typical for Striped Bass,” DNR Fisheries Director Tom O'Connell said in the press release announcing the results.

Cornell has placed its men's lacrosse team on temporary suspension and canceled all "fall ball" competitions pending an investigation into a hazing incident last Friday, the school said today in a statement. The penalty was due to allegations of "coerced consumption of alcohol by underage freshmen," according to multiple reports. According to LaxPower, the Big Red was scheduled to play the Iroquois Nationals on Sept. 29 in Cortland, N.Y., and in the Capital Lacrosse Classic in Bethesda on Oct. 13; the latter event is a fundraiser for the foundation honoring former Cornell player George Boiardi , who died after being struck in the chest by a lacrosse ball during a 2004 game against Binghamton.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- The America's Cup is over for Team Dennis Conner's Stars & Stripes. The San Francisco Yacht Club's challenger, America True, made sure of that on the waters of the Hauraki Gulf yesterday when in a light air lottery it picked a 90-degree wind shift and ended up 1 minute, 40 seconds ahead after the first of six racing legs. "We wanted the left," Stars & Stripes skipper Ken Read said, referring to what they thought was the side of the course with the best wind. "Every guy on the boat wanted left.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- They're calling it the greatest comeback since Lazarus. Dennis Conner's Stars & Stripes, the underdog in this America's Cup campaign, has bounced back from the brink of elimination to topple points leader and challenger finalist AmericaOne, setting the scene for a probable sudden-death sail-off against Italy's Prada. That race, expected to be contested Saturday, will determine AmericaOne's opponent in a best-of-nine series to determine the America's Cup challenger.

A Tilghman Island commercial fisherman has been charged with witness tampering and intimidation in a federal investigation into alleged poaching of striped bass from the Chesapeake Bay, prosecutors announced Wednesday. Michael D. Hayden, Jr., 41,was arrested Tuesday, according to a news release issued by U.S. attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. Prosecutors say agents of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Maryland Natural Resources Police learned while investigating alleged striped bass poaching that Hayden had allegedly tried to manipulate some witnesses' testimony to a grand jury while trying to prevent others from testifying at all.  The criminal complaint against Hayden also alleges he threatened to retaliate against a potential witness he believed to be cooperating with investigators.
