It is the nature of sports and our passion for them that the novelty of newfound success only lasts so long and is eventually replaced with a bittersweet mixture of pride and regret. So it will be as Orioles fans tune in to the World Series, which begins Wednesday night in San Francisco, and watch the Giants play the Detroit Tigers for a championship trophy that wasn't even a twinkle in anyone's eye around here eight months ago. Call it the theory of sports relativity. The Orioles were expected to reside near the bottom of the American League East standings again in 2012.

Things are tough out there on the mean streets of Blocktimore, or so we find out in the newest spin on "The Wire" -- done this time entirely with Legos. Yahoo gets the credit for Baltimore redone like Lego-land, a funny bit just released online Wednesday. Just about everything from "The Wire" is in the four-minute short. The drugs. The corruption. The cops that enjoy a few drinks. There's Omar, with two guns. There's McNulty toting a very big bottle of something alcoholic.

Wink, wink? The governor of Maryland, daring to be relevant, was on the radio the other day - again, and for almost 11 minutes straight - and he said, "Wink, wink." He said it at least three times during one of those long Bobby Governor harangues against Democrats - particularly the General Assembly leaders who had just worked out a plan on electricity rates - and how they strike devious deals among themselves and avoid hard truths for political expediency. They kind of "wink, wink" at each other, behind our backs, the governor said.

WHATEVER THE outcome of the judicial process, the indictment of a former state delegate and five others in a sweeping bribery and favoritism probe should compel the city liquor board to reform. It is time to clean house and stop the charade.Item: Under current law, any individual or corporation is limited to a single liquor license. So why have video amusement and vending machine companies been buying up failed taverns, along with their licenses, at auctions? The companies then reopen those establishments with licenses that are effectively rented out to create the impression of separate ownership.

LANDOVER -- Dangling on the overtime hook for the second straight week, the New York Giants wriggled off yesterday with sheer grit, an unsung hero and a bold promise to their defense. The grit came from quarterback Kerry Collins, who was winking and smiling in the shadow of his own goal line in overtime. The unsung hero was fullback Jim Finn, who sneaked into the open for a big catch to set up Matt Bryant's game-winning 29-yard field goal. And the promise came from coach Jim Fassel, who told his weary defense at the start of overtime it would get a reprieve.

As a former Republican (I left the party in protest over the Iraq War), I cringe at what's happened to the GOP. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin "gets it right" in your opinion because she believes competition will breed success, but competition among whom and about what? ("Sarah Palin gets it right," May 31.) The Republican presidential field is pathetic, in my opinion, and you can't turn mice into racehorses. Sarah Palin is the queen mouse of all time. Perhaps we should be awed that Ms. Palin visited Fort McHenry, read "The Star-Spangled Banner" and even managed to lift a canon ball.

Owner Henry Mitchem says he named his restaurant Winks because it sits in the shadow of the ever-leering giant Natty Boh head that hovers over Brewers Hill. But Winks Hill Top Grill has the unfortunate distinction of being a Brewers Hill establishment that serves no brew. Though Mitchem is working to get a liquor license, he doesn't have one yet. That means this family-owned eatery has to survive on the strengths of its charm and the quality of its food. -- Poor:]
