Peter Bondra, the right wing of the Washington Capitals, grew up waiting for his brother, Juraj, to bring him his used hockey sticks. "I was always so happy with his stick," Bondra said after a recent game. "I'd be asleep, but would hear him come in and I'd get up and go ask him, `Did you bring me a stick?' " Most of the time, Juraj, who played professional hockey in Czechoslovakia, did bring his younger brother what he wanted, only to see him take it and work diligently to curve the blade.

The nonprofit Washington 2024 unveiled a website and announced its board Thursday, but Plank was its only Baltimore-area member, and Maryland's participation is only nominally suggested in the newly released promotional material. Maryland appears to be a secondary partner in this effort, but likely would host multiple events if the bid is successful and be asked to make a significant financial contribution.
