A common tradition at weddings is for the bride to toss the bouquet.  The myth that goes along with this is that the woman to catch the bouquet will be the next one to get married. If you're already engaged, though, and know you're getting married soon, should you be a part of this?  I have always participated in the bouquet toss at weddings before being engaged and always thought it was fun but have sat out at the past two weddings because I'm engaged now. The first wedding everyone seemed to think it was fine but the last wedding the bride yelled for me to get out there.

John Buch threw away his sons' Ray Rice jerseys. He ripped posters of the Ravens running back from the walls of their rooms. And this season, there won't be any cheers for Rice from the family's Towson home. Since a video surfaced of Rice dragging the unconscious body of his now-wife from a casino elevator, the incident has sharply divided Ravens fans. Rice married his longtime girlfriend, Janay Palmer, the day after he was indicted on assault charges. He later agreed to a pretrial diversion program to avoid jail time.

Dylan Bundy was the first Saturday night to say he still has work to do before he legitimately can be considered an option for the Orioles' major league club. Making his second rehabilitation start for short-season Single-A Aberdeen, the club's top prospect, working his way back from reconstructive elbow surgery a year ago, was dominant Saturday during a 3-1 loss in 11 innings. He threw five scoreless innings and allowed just two hits against Brooklyn, recording nine strikeouts, including five of the first six batters he faced.

NEW YORK -- No. 9 seed Karol Kucera took his time. Down 2-0 and facing two break points at 15-40 in the fifth set against No. 8 Andre Agassi, he knew he was in big trouble.So Kucera bounced the ball again and thought about it."I knew it was not really about the serve," he said. "It was really about the baseline rallies. I was thinking, that's my only chance to win."Kucera won the rallies, and then won the set, ousting Agassi, 6-3, 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 1-6, 6-3, yesterday to move into the quarterfinals.

300 Best Stir-Fry Recipes By Nancie McDermott The About.Com Guide to Shortcut Cooking By Linda Larsen F+W Publications Inc. / 2007 / $17.95 Although this book features 225 different shortcut recipes, the focus is mostly on entrees. The recipe I tried was too much of a shortcut. When I finished making the Beef and Nectarine Stir-Fry, the beef was overdone and tough. The directions should have been clearer. The book says to slice along the grain when the beef is frozen, but it does not describe the width of each slice.

In a season when the weather can turn from brisk to blizzard, the choice of outerwear can be problematic. The practical answer is a shawl that can be tossed over a jacket or suit and then folded and stashed away. Women on the move have discovered the stylish potential in a swath of luxurious, unstructured fabric that wears comfortably and travels well.It can be a long stole, a poncho or a blanket-sized square doubled up in a triangle to wrap around the shoulders. A finish of deep fringe is a flippant stylish bonus, so learn to toss it lightly.

DEAR CAL -- Over the past five years, elite travel clubs have taken a foothold on youth sports. Years ago these kids were playing in Little Leagues across the county.

Britton provided more evidence of that during the Orioles' 3-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday afternoon, tossing three shutout innings to serve as the bridge between starter Miguel Gonzalez and closer Tommy Hunter . Britton, a former starter who made the full-time move to the bullpen this spring,...

"This is crazy!" declared Doug as he turned in a circle to consider his surroundings. "I'm nominating you for an episode of 'Hoarders'!" We were in my walk-in closet, and Doug's facial expression was part amazement, part horror, and part acid indigestion. Usually, I do a closet clean-out by myself. I'd rather chew tinfoil than let somebody into the bottomless pit of wretchedness and despair that is the place where my sweat pants go to die. Unfortunately, I'm not very good at it. No matter how many trips I make to the donation center, somehow I never manage to liberate even two hangers worth of wardrobe space.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Wei-Yin Chen became the first Oriole to go four innings this spring and Henry Urrutia's first homer helped contribute to a 2-2 tie with the Minnesota Twins. The Orioles took a 2-1 lead into the ninth, but reliever Troy Patton gave up a solo homer to former Orioles' farmhand Brandon Waring. Because the Twins also had a split squad against Tampa in Port Charlotte on Friday, they didn't have enough pitching to extend the game and the sides agreed to the tie. Chen pitched well, allowing three hits, one walk and one run while striking out three and throwing 60 pitches in four innings.

The North Carolina Court of Appeals is allowing a lawsuit to proceed in which the Atlantic Coast Conference seeks to compel the University of Maryland to pay a $52 million exit fee for leaving the conference next year. Maryland had argued that there was no authority for a court in another state to permit the suit to continue. But the ACC, which is based in North Carolina, countered that Maryland was bound by the equivalent of a contract -- the ACC constitution. “The ACC alleges that the University of Maryland's withdrawal from the ACC subjects them to a mandatory withdrawal payment in the amount of $52,266,342,” a three-judge appeals court panel said in its decision today.

Howard County is asking a federal court to throw out a former Fire Department battalion chief's lawsuit, arguing that the Facebook posts that triggered his dismissal were not constitutionally protected because they were "at best, personal opinion or pique and, at worst, insubordinate. " The response, filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court, follows a suit brought last month by Kevin P. Buker. The county argues that posts on Buker's personal Facebook page early this year did not involve "a matter of public concern" - a key element in cases involving the First Amendment rights of public employees.

Maryland had just committed another turnover - its fourth - and seemed headed for its low point of the season. It had grown dark and cold inside Byrd Stadium, the student section had thinned out, and the loudest remaining fans were huddled in the Syracuse section, chanting, "Let's go, Orange!" A 4-0 start to the season seemed like an eternity ago Saturday after Terps mistakes - two fumbles, two interceptions and multiple receiver drops - contributed to Syracuse's 20-3 victory. It was Maryland's fourth loss in five games and kept the injury-depleted team one win shy of becoming bowl eligible with three games remaining.

I am feeling stupid right now, a condition not totally unfamiliar to me, but unsettling nonetheless. "See how easy it is?" says the man running the Bank-a-Ball booth. He flips a wiffleball against a backboard decorated with a Spider-Man decal. The ball lands lightly in the basket below. If I do the same thing, I'll win a stuffed animal. The pressure is tremendous. I plunk down three bucks for three balls. I toss each ball softly, with no spin, trying to deaden it against Spiderman's face.

Campaign finance limits are back before the U.S. Supreme Court this week, and that's probably bad news for those who like good government. Think what this country needs is to give more political clout to the wealthy and those who seek special favors from government? Well, your wish may soon be granted. Tomorrow, the justices will hear arguments in Shaun McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission that challenge aggregate limits on individual campaign donations. Under current law, a donor can't give more than $48,600 to federal candidates during the two-year election cycle and no more than $123,200 when contributions to political committees are added to the mix. Those caps date back to the post-Watergate philosophy that there's a public interest in preventing corruption and the appearance of corruption.
