CLEVELAND - Neil Gilbert spent Christmas in Argentina and came back bearing gifts for his Blast teammates. The veteran, known primarily for his scrappy defensive play, scored two goals, including the go-ahead goal in the fourth quarter, to lead the Blast to a 7-5 victory over the Cleveland Force last night. "Scoring goals feels great, but being with a winning team is better," said Gilbert, who is in his second season with the Blast - his seventh team in an indoor career that began in 1994.

On the field: Jeffrey Hammonds' speed was a major asset to the Orioles in this series. Two nights ago, his hustle going to second base forced Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter into a costly throwing error. And last night, he stole third after catcher Joe Girardi threw to first trying to pick off B. J. Surhoff, and scored on Chris Hoiles' single to center.In the dugout: With the Yankees starting left-hander Andy Pettitte, manager Davey Johnson penciled Jeff Reboulet into the lineup at second base.

Just about everyone is talking about the price of gasoline, and no wonder: Gas for less than $3 a gallon is receding in memory, and at some stations in California and Hawaii, the price at the pump tops $4. That, of course, is why bedandbreakfast.com has launched its Tanks a Lot promotion for the fifth year, with inns across the nation putting their discounts directly into your gas tank. Some examples: Through Oct. 18, Pilgrim's Inn and Cottages, Deer Isle, Maine, (pilgrimsinn.com) will reward guests arriving in a hybrid vehicle up to $40 for a tank of gas.

For two nights, 56 uniformed police officers abandoned their cars and stood on street corners on Baltimore's east side. They didn't chase people. They didn't walk around the block. They didn't move.All they did was watch. When they saw someone dealing drugs or drinking alcohol, they radioed for other officers who swooped in and rounded up the lawbreakers as part of Operation Spider Web.By the end of the first night on Thursday, 47 people were behind bars. Emergency calls for loiterers -- calls that typically tie up an officer's time -- were nonexistent.

Kathy Griffin's desperate efforts to get some shock buzz New Year's Eve on CNN were so obvious that I vowed I wouldn't write about her -- wouldn't write about her kissing Anderson Cooper's crotch and trying to make sure every viewer knew what she was doing. You can see the video above. (And don't write to me about using the video from the right-wing Newsbusters website. It's the best edited of the lot, and most of the YouTube cuts have such bad video you don't know what's being said unless you're a lip-reader.)

Orioles fans, take a bow. You deserve it. That was some show you put on at Camden Yards the past two nights. I've never seen anything like it. And I've been around sports in this town for a long time. For two wonderful nights in October, you showed the entire country this could still be a great baseball town, no matter how big the Ravens are. For two nights, in the kind of dreary weather that makes London look like a terrific place, you filled the Orioles' jewel of a downtown ballpark, twirling your orange-and-white rally towels and making enough noise to shake the place - literally.

The No. 2 Milford Mill boys basketball team made its case to take over the area's No. 1 ranking with a win over top-ranked Dunbar at the 16th annual Basketball Academy on Thursday night. But there was still some work left in the Academy on Saturday against No. 8 Lake Clifton, and the Lakers spoiled the Millers' plans.
