Mark Garrity Shea, an 11-year-old with a naturalist's curiosity in the world beyond his Baltimore County back yard, died Tuesday after he was attacked by a pack of hyenas while on safari with his mother in Botswana. Known as Garrit, he was a lean, freckle-faced boy with a keen interest in the natural world and a collector's eye for its treasures. In a bedroom at his father's home, he kept a small shelf to display his trophies, including an elephant tusk, a whale tooth and, his favorite, a bear claw from a camping trip in New Mexico.

If Tuesday night's Baltimore Hockey Classic, which pitted the Washington Capitals against the Boston Bruins, was any indication, Baltimore had better things to do than watch a live NHL preseason game. There were thousands of empty seats inside Baltimore Arena, though many of the others were filled with red-clad Capitals fans and some wearing the jerseys of past Capitals, such as Peter Bondra, Olaf Kolzig and Jaromir Jagr. There were a number of black and gold Bruins jerseys inside the half-filled arena, too. The puck-lovers who did show up booed as loud as they collectively could when the Bruins were introduced as the defending Eastern Conference champions.
