Days before Todd Pletcher won his first Kentucky Derby with Super Saver, thus becoming the only trainer with a shot at the elusive Triple Crown this year, a handful of reporters stood outside his barn at Churchill Downs and asked him whether he could think of a comparable feat in another sport. Pletcher considered the question for a few seconds before settling on an answer. "Probably [ Joe DiMaggio's] 56-game hitting streak," he said. "But even then, after the Derby, only one horse has a chance at doing it. I think it's got to rank up there as one of the toughest things in sports."

In the days leading up to RAW, the buzz was about the upcoming crowd in Chicago, and the possible return of CM Punk. By the end of the night, the talk was mostly about Daniel Bryan and Triple H. The two advanced their storyline Monday night, starting with a verbal rundown by Triple H and culminating in Triple H hitting a Pedigree on a motionless Daniel Bryan. Earlier in the night, Bryan came out to call out Triple H once again. He appealed to the crowd, even saying that they would “hijack RAW” together (which is what a movement in Chicago had said they would try to do)

Tonight's Raw marked a milestone -- episode 1,001. In many ways, this show was more important than last week's historic 1,000th episode. The legends are gone, the big names have disappeared and the anticipation of John Cena cashing in his Money in the Bank is gone. The real tests of the three-hour Raw era would begin tonight, as the company had to rely on its everyday amenities to create a compelling beginning to the next 1,000 episodes. And much of the weight would fall on one man -- WWE Champion CM Punk, who shocked the wrestling world by taking out both John Cena and The Rock at the end of last week's show, turning his back on the WWE fans in the process.

Just before Howard's girls basketball team tipped off at Reservoir two weeks ago, Lions coach Scott Robinson handed his players pieces of paper and asked them to jot down their impressions of the seniors. They all wrote the same things about Sydney Biniak: "great role model," "great teammate," or both. To Biniak, Howard's 6-foot center, that meant a lot. She'd rather be known as a great teammate than a star player. But as a standout on three straight Howard County championship teams, she has to settle for both.

It was only recently that linebacker Terrell Suggs wondered whether the Ravens should stick with rookie Joe Flacco as the starting quarterback. After witnessing the Ravens' 29-10 pummeling of the Oakland Raiders yesterday, Suggs and the sellout crowd at M&T Bank Stadium had another question on their mind. What can't Flacco do? In what likely will go down as a unique performance by a Ravens quarterback, Flacco showed off his arm (throwing for a 70-yard touchdown), his hands (catching a 43-yard pass)

Marty Windisch didn't break any records at Manchester Valley High School. When he enrolled in August 2009, there simply weren't any records to break. After one year at North Carroll High School, Windisch stepped into a new school and a fledgling athletic program. Three years later, he left Manchester Valley as the top male student-athlete in the school's brief history. He now holds a few records, too. But Windisch's impact on goes beyond athletics. While playing football, basketball and baseball at a high level, he excelled academically and helped his school and community in many ways.

Before every Coppin State practice this season, a band of shooters from one of the most prolific 3-point shooting teams in Division I gathers around a rim inside the Physical Education Complex for a little friendly competition. The goal is simple, guard Tony Gallo explains, and the battles typically taut. Knock down 10 shots from beyond the arc before anyone else does, and you win. Lately, Gallo's won a lot. Or has he? "He said he was in the lead?" forward Logan Wiens exclaimed in mock disbelief Monday.

Let's see if I've got this right: A committee of the Baltimore City Council will discuss the passage of a 10-cent "bag tax," following its earlier approval of a 5-cent "bottle tax" ( "Shoppers in city may see 10-cent bag fee," Jan. 21). The council should just pass a "breathing tax" to make it a triple header of taxes starting with the letter "b. " Then no one will want to live or shop in Charm City. Terren M.

For the past week, many wrestling fans have been excited about the idea of the Survivor Series pay-per-view being headlined by a traditional 10-man Survivor Series main event. But WWE seemingly couldn't leave well enough alone. After rushing to announce the two teams - led by WWE Champion CM Punk and WWE legend Mick Foley - on last week's episode of Raw, WWE seems to have let its own doubt run rampant and cause major adjustments to the teams and the PPV card as a whole. Raw opened with a pre-taped segment in which former Intercontinental Champion The Miz walked away from Team Punk.

The card for next month's No Way Out pay-per-view continued to take shape after Friday night's episode of Smackdown, but recent events have parts of the show left with question marks. Alberto Del Rio defeated Randy Orton and Kane in a triple threat match to be crowned the No. 1 contender to the Sheamus' World Heavyweight Championship. But it is the other two participants in that match that are at the center of the most interesting scenarios leading into the next PPV event.

DUDE, I SERVICE society by rocking, OK? That's how Jack Black's character, a failed rock 'n' roll performer masquerading as a schoolteacher, explains his philosophy of life in School of Rock, a movie that has a lot to say about music and growing up. Apparently, it's not a philosophy shared by Martin O'Malley, Baltimore's rockin' renaissance man.

Well, there is an alternative: Inviting the private sector in to see if they can work with the public sector in this regard. In my book, "Public-Private Partnerships - Case Studies on Infrastructure Development," I include many examples of public-private partnerships to improve roads, bridges and tunnels by permitting the private sector to invest in revenue-producing infrastructure that can accomplish several goals: 1.)
