BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Eighteen years ago this column reported that Victor Gruen, the Austrian-American architect credited with conceiving and designing America's first post-World War II shopping centers, had decided to disavow his own progeny.His early intent, Gruen told me in an interview in his native Vienna, was that shopping centers be ''more than selling machines.'' They'd also provide post offices, circulating libraries, club meeting rooms, everything it takes to make a real town center.

TRENTON, N.J. - Not even a change of scenery helped, or going up against the Philadelphia KiXX, which the Blast has handled very well all season. The banged-up Blast, limping noticeably to the finish line, let the KiXX take charge in the third quarter and then could muster only a mild fourth-quarter challenge yesterday afternoon in falling, 20-15, and sliding down a spot in the NPSL American Conference standings. The Blast, now 21-17 and in third place after its third straight loss, traded positions with the KiXX, which takes over second place at 21-16.

The Orioles ran onto the field last night, their theme song blared over the public address system, and a city fought to stifle a yawn. Capturing the hearts of their fans, or at least getting them out of the house, apparently will require more than a battle for third place. With little at stake and few people in the stands, the Orioles were shut out for the 14th time this season, losing to the Toronto Blue Jays, 2-0, before an announced crowd of 20,279 at Camden Yards. It was the lowest paid attendance in the ballpark's 11-year history, surpassing by 1,168 the previous record low in an Aug. 22 makeup game against Tampa Bay. Three straight two-out hits off Sidney Ponson, the last by rookie Josh Phelps, broke a scoreless tie in the sixth, and Phelps homered in the ninth to move the Blue Jays 2 1/2 games ahead of the Orioles in the American League East.

Few would have faulted Towson's Terrance West for being angry after the junior running back finished third in the voting for the Walter Payton Award on Monday night, despite leading the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) in rushing and touchdowns. But with the No. 7 seed Tigers (12-2) still alive and preparing for Saturday's NCAA Division I Football Championship semifinal at No. 3 seed Eastern Washington (12-2), West was more than happy to miss out on the FCS' top individual honor if it meant winning a greater prize.

It looks as though 53 homers and 138 RBIs doesn't go as far as it used to these days . Orioles first baseman Chris Davis' remarkable season earned him recognition in every major offseason postseason award, but Davis netted just one trophy - a Silver Slugger award - for his effort. And in the race for the American League Most Valuable Player Award, Davis finished third behind back-to-back winner Miguel Cabrera of the Tigers and Angels outfielder Mike Trout. The MVP is one of eight annual postseason award selected by the members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

The Towson football team captured at least a share of the past two Colonial Athletic Association championships. A third appears to be out of the picture. Saturday night's 32-31 loss to Delaware dropped the Tigers to 8-2 overall and 4-2 in the conference. They fell to third place in the league standings behind No. 8 Maine (8-1, 5-0) and the Blue Hens (7-2, 4-1), who jumped from No. 21 to No. 15 in the most recent Football Championship Subdivision poll published by The Sports Network.

NEW YORK - Remember the New York Yankees? That shell of a franchise that was left for dead after being swept last weekend at Camden Yards, the mega-salaried club that simply couldn't overcome injuries and old age? Well, after beating the Orioles, 5-4, on a scorching Saturday afternoon before an announced 42,678 in the Bronx, the Yankees have risen like a phoenix and flown a half-game ahead of the Orioles and back into second place in the American League East. “This division, there is no one ever comfortable,” Orioles reserve catcher Taylor Teagarden said.

Two years ago as he was about to take over a ratings-battered and beleaguered newscast from Katie Couric, Scott Pelley told me he thought great journalism in the traditional sense of that term could still be good business despite the epic change rocking TV news. Today, on his second anniversary in the anchor seat once held by Walter Cronkite, Pelley and the folks at CBS News can point to a record of solid growth at a time when most in the legacy media business are just hoping to stem the rate of decline.

Orioles left-hander Zach Britton came into his first major league start of the season full of confidence, ready to show he could become a stabilizing piece of a starting rotation in disarray. It was a long-awaited start for both Britton and the Orioles after the 24-year-old spent the season strengthening his left shoulder in Sarasota, Fla., and working on his mechanics in Triple-A Norfolk. But after his 2012 Orioles debut on Tuesday night against the Minnesota Twins, Britton wondered out loud what happened to all that confidence on the mound in the Orioles' 6-4 loss to Minnesota at Target Field.
