There was Wendell Pierce last Sunday night, sitting at a bar, pounding down drink after drink and getting kind of emotional as he talked about how messed up things had gotten in his life. Shades of Bunk Moreland, of “The Wire,” to be sure. Only instead of Dominic West as Jimmy McNulty matching him drink for drink, it was Liev Schreiber as Ray Donovan sitting next to him. Still, the character, Ronald Keith, a parole officer in Showtime's “Ray Donovan” series, was played just as winningly by Pierce.

When Navy won the opening faceoff of Saturday's eventual 21-12 thrashing of Patriot League foe Holy Cross, the offense was composed of the usual starters on attack - and the players who make up the second midfield. Seniors Austin Heneveld and Sean Price and sophomore Kevin Wendel took the field with the starting attack of seniors Sam Jones and Tucker Hull and sophomore T.J. Hanzsche. But before any conspiracy theories begin hatching, coach Rick Sowell said the second line took the first possession because Heneveld was already on the field as a wing player on the faceoff unit.

A day after Mike Mussina's defection to the New York Yankees, the Orioles were frustrated in their attempts to bolster their bullpen when free-agent middle relievers Jeff Nelson and Turk Wendell opted for more familiar, more lucrative and more competitive surroundings. Nelson rejected the Orioles and his former team, the Yankees, to sign a three-year, $11 million deal with the Seattle Mariners, sources said, while the New York Mets abruptly trumped the Orioles' offer for Wendell with a three-year, $9.4 million bid. Without two of the market's most durable arms, the pitching-thin Orioles find themselves scrambling to improve an area they deemed an off-season priority.

Editor's note: Wendell and Floyd find that sometimes a shortcut on the way to school isn't really a shortcut at all. On Monday, Wendell and Floyd were late for school. They had nearly been captured by space creatures, they told their teacher. "Ridiculous," said Ms. Gernsblatt, and she warned them not to let it happen again. But Tuesday was no better. Pirates were loose in the neighborhood. It was sheer bad luck, Wendell and Floyd explained, when they showed up late for school. "Preposterous!"

A new film premiering in the Baltimore region on Friday features the actor Wendell Pierce, a familiar face to many here, as a conflicted husband and father who has an affair with a teenage boy he meets online. Pierce, best known for his portrayal of Detective Bunk Moreland in the acclaimed Baltimore-based series "The Wire," says in production materials for the film "FOUR " that his role is one "people would never expect" him to play.

Calling Wendel Patrick multi-talented is an understatement. The 39-year-old Baltimore resident usually has a Fender Rhodes keyboard, two turntables, effects processors and a microphone for beat boxing and vocal percussion at his shows. When Patrick bumped into Erik Spangler (aka: DJ Dubble8) after a closing performance at last year's Artscape, they talked about creating an improv-based hip-hop series. Last November, they created the Baltimore Boom Bap Society, which now performs monthly shows around the city.
