Clifton Park will look, feel and sound like the Caribbean this weekend. The annual Trinidad and Tobago Days Festival takes over the park, featuring the music, food and culture of the two islands, located just off the coast of Venezuela. "This year we are focusing on an old-time calypso theme," says Gloria Gibbs of the Trinidad & Tobago Association of Baltimore, the sponsoring group of the festival. Calypso is considered the originating music of the islands, with its lively beat and often improvised lyrics.

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad - Soccer came of age in the United States in 1989 when the national team qualified for its first World Cup finals in 40 years, thanks to a gritty victory on the road over Trinidad and Tobago. Since that time, the team has transformed itself from a plucky group of collegiate players to a regional power, now poised to join a few select countries that have qualified for five straight finals. The final round of qualifying for a spot in Germany in 2006 begins today in the heat, humidity and emotionally charged atmosphere of Carnival season in Trinidad (2:30 ET, ESPN2)

Salome Semper stood in the drizzle on McCulloh Street outside Druid Hill Park with a smattering of parade spectators, listening to the sounds of steel drum bands playing in the distance. They could hear something like a parade way off toward Druid Park Drive, but still there was no sign of the costumed marchers or floats. Many had waited at least two hours amid spurts of heavy rain for the parade to wend its way from Park Heights to Druid Hill to kick off Baltimore's annual Caribbean Carnival Festival, in its 29th year this weekend.

BEIJING - Usain Bolt isn't among the many athletes who listen to music with headphones before they compete. His coach, Glen Mills, doesn't allow it, worrying it will interfere with Bolt's concentration. But that didn't stop Bolt from doing a little dancing before he stepped into the blocks last night at the Olympics, before the crowd of 91,000 at the Bird's Nest went quiet for the start of the men's 100-meter final. Bolt won the 100 meters in a time, 9.69 seconds, that broke his own 11-week-old world record of 9.72.

If being a soccer fan in America is wrong, I don't want to be right. It's shameful that sports fans in this country huddle behind the provincial boundaries of a few America-centric professional sports. There's a big world out there, and most of it is focused on the World Cup right now. While you were carving out time to watch the fourth-place Orioles play the fourth-place Minnesota Twins over the weekend, you probably missed much of the drama that was playing out in Germany. Take Saturday, for instance, when Paraguay scored the only goal of the game against England and lost, 1-0 ... or when Trinidad and Tobago took a raucous victory lap after playing heavily favored Sweden to a 0-0 tie. England won on an "own goal" when a Paraguayan defender accidentally headed David Beckham's free kick past his own goalie.
