Not long ago, we offered you the top 10 things you should know about the top 10 lists that usually appear on "Late Night with David Letterman," then we asked you to come up with your own lists about three selected topics. We sifted through more than 100 submitted lists to present the best of the entries. Here they are, and, to the victims, remember: These weren't our ideas:BY FAR, OUR most popular category was the top 10 pet peeves of the Oriole Bird:10. I'm tired of shaking my tail feathers.

Bucky kindly sent me a list of the Dining@Large entries that have gotten the most comments. There's a weird kind of fascination to it. Some are posts you would expect to get a lot of discussion, like Best Crab Houses. Others just blew me away, like the fact that RANCH DRESSING is in the No. 1 position. Now that's strange: 1 10/24/08 - I (Heart) Ranch Dressing (165 comments) 2 7/10/08 - Sandwich Musings (150), about what people like on their sandwiches 3 5/28/08 - Beef Fat Again Already (143)

Three years ago, Senior Airman Gideon Connelly decided to have his left leg amputated below the knee. On Thursday, Connelly ran the 200-meter dash in 29.4 seconds. The 25-year-old Dundalk resident was one of 200-plus participants to compete in last week's Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, an adaptive-sports competition founded in 2010 for wounded or ill service members and veterans like Connelly, whose recovery from a 2011 motorcycle accident trumps anything he has done in the wake of it. "It's great watching these wounded warriors get together to compete for all these medals," Connelly said.

It's not too late to dine green. Last week's Top 10 Tuesday on Dining@Large was Top 10 Restaurants to Celebrate Earth Day. Here's my list in alphabetical order: 1 Dogwood Cafe in Hampden. Owners Bridget and Galen Sampson are known for their eco-consciousness and good deeds - and the food is good. 2 Elevation Burger in Harbor East. The all-natural, organic version of fast food, plus veggie burgers if you insist. 3 Feast@4East in Mount Vernon. A very personal dining experience, emphasizing local ingredients.

Eric DeCosta makes picking in the top 10 of the NFL draft sound so easy. "We just rate the players," the Ravens' director of college scouting said. "When you're looking at the top 10 players, they're so good. Just like when you're driving down a neighborhood, you see a million-dollar home versus a $300,000 home, and you know which is the million-dollar home." NFL draft Saturday and next Sunday, New York TV: Saturday: 3 p.m.-11 p.m. [NFL Network]; 3 p.m.-8 p.m. [ESPN]; 8 p.m.-11 p.m. [ESPN2]

Miami -- As usual, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson managed to avoid being in the same place for most of the PGA Tour's West Coast swing. Except for the Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines, which Woods won and in which Mickelson finished tied for eighth, the PGA Tour's biggest draws haven't been together in 2006. That will change today when Woods and Mickelson are part of a field that includes nine of the world's top 10-ranked players in the Ford Championship at Doral. What happened here between the two in the final round last year still reverberates, with hopes of it being reprised come Sunday.

Maybe the folks at what used to be V-103 knew something when they ceded Baltimore's urban radio market to their downtown rivals at 92-Q.WERQ-FM (92.3) has vaulted back to the top of Baltimore's radio heap, according to Arbitron ratings released last week for April-June 1997. And it did so in spectacular fashion, besting its closest competitor (WBAL-AM) by 2.5 share points, or roughly 9,000 listeners.WXYV, which had been battling 92-Q for the urban market, threw in the towel late last month, switching formats from Urban Contemporary to Contemporary Hit Radio, a '90s version of Top 40. The station did not make the top-10 list this go-round, the first time that's happened in recent memory.

Coming into the season, the Atlantic Coast Conference appeared poised to regain its status as the premier league in men's college basketball. Five weeks into the season, that perception looks more and more like reality. For the first time since January 2001 and sixth time overall, the ACC has four teams ranked in the Top 10: No. 3 Duke, No. 4 Georgia Tech, No. 8 Wake Forest and No. 9 North Carolina. Maryland weighs in at No. 24, meaning more than half of the nine teams are in the Top 25. The ACC is the top-ranked conference in both the Rating Percentage Index report and the Sagarin computer ratings.
