In an early 15-7 win over Friends, they scored every goal.

As Georgetown's Sheehan Stanwick watched her sister Wick go through the college lacrosse recruiting process, she tried not to influence her choice. Although she hoped Wick would choose Georgetown, too, Sheehan said, "I tried to stay out of it, because I wanted to make sure it was her decision and I wanted to make sure she'd be happy." As an increasing number of younger sisters have, Wick finally opted to follow her sister. The Notre Dame Prep graduates now are playing side by side in the Hoyas' attack.

She emerged from the womb "like a froggy, ferny cabbage. " Some folks never did get over the shock of seeing the artichoke-colored baby, who grew up to be a fearsome threat to a girl from Kansas ... and her little dog, too. That green-skinned character known for generations only as the Wicked Witch of the West, thanks to the indelible 1939 film "The Wizard of Oz," turns out to have a name - Elphaba - and an eventful back story. How this witch ended up so witch-y is the subject of the multiple Tony Award-winning musical "Wicked," which "takes one of the iconic villains of our culture and turns it on its ear," said Marc Platt, the show's Pikesville-born producer.

"And Elphaba" - aka the Wicked Witch of the West - "is the quintessential outsider. She's bullied onstage. When bullying became part of the national conversation a few years ago, we allowed the show and its characters to be involved. " Cast members have made videos for the "It Gets Better" campaign.

It's easy being green, once you learn the knack. To create the distinctive pigment for Elphaba, the title witch in "Wicked," makeup designer Joseph Dulude had one goal. "The most important thing was that we didn't want it to look fake," Dulude said. "We wanted it to look like skin, and we wanted Elphaba to be pretty. People hate her not because she's ugly, but because her skin color is different. " Dulude tried several products before he settled on Landscape Green Chromacake, after discovering that it could not be applied full-strength, which required airbrushing.

This week,"The Amazing Race"brings us hay, oil, apples, cheese and crackers. Plus a little bit of heartbreak. I'm fortified with lots of homemade peppermint cookies, though, so I can get through this. Remember Bavaria? Land of Beards and Inquisitive Cows? That was so seven days ago. The remaining teams are sent to Baku, Azerbaijan. I know, you're all, “I'm so tired of everyone always going to Azerbaijan, it's like the Palm Springs of the Eurasian continent.” I'll still give you a geography refresher, though.
