The snow was on its way when City visited Patterson on Feb. 2, but that didn't stop anybody from doing what has become routine when a boys basketball game takes place at the East Baltimore school this season. The line outside begins to form shortly after school lets out - about 3:30 p.m. - and with extra security on hand, the gym doors open. Show up any later and you might not get in. It means sitting through the junior varsity game until the varsity starts after 5, but there haven't been any complaints.

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson , who was uncatchable in setting a league mark for yards from scrimmage (2,509) and becoming the sixth player with a 2,000-yard rushing season, was the runaway winner of the Associated Press NFL Offensive Player of the Year award. He is the first NFL player to finish with at least 2,000 yards rushing and 500 receiving (503). That earned the second-year pro 38 1/2 votes Wednesday from a nationwide panel of 50 sportswriters and broadcasters.

TURNBERRY, Scotland -- You wake one day on a golfing planet gone completely merciless and Sergio Garcia seems middle-aged, Adam Scott winds up dumped to No. 43 and the rankings teem with those who arrived young but ready to rumble. Nine of the top 26 players have the audacity not to have reached age 30, the same goes for 16 of the top 50, and one theme of this 138th British Open entails whether golf's largest wave of precocity to date might deposit one of its 20-somethings somewhere well up the Sunday leader board.

If the Orioles don't think they can re-sign Brian Roberts, they have to get something for him now and not wait on a 2010 draft pick. There have been too many examples in the past of the Orioles letting top players go with nothing in return but a pick. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/cornersportsbar)

Forget Dick Vitale's invention of the current college basketball vernacular. Long before he screamed at us about the virtues of the latest and greatest Blue Devils - something he will inevitably do this season - one word was used more than any other. That word - dynasty - might now be extinct, even for Dickie V. In what has become a here-today-playing-in-the-NBA-tomorrow kind of world, the shelf life for those remaining at or near the top of the college basketball food chain has shriveled dramatically.
