Christmas is known as the time for magic and miracles. For guys like me, it's a time to count blessings, realizing that everything that seemed to be wrong really wasn't that bad after all. It's also a time to take in the little moments you never thought you would expereience. For me, I got to watch a future Olympic champion in action. All right, it was my stepdaughter Brianna, who I know already, and the Olympic champion thing might be a stretch, too, especially since I don't think they offer competition in the event she excelled in ... gift opening ... at least not yet. Hey, if they can give medals for table tennis and curling, Brianna still has a chance.

Those who enjoy sports know they have so many sides. They are entertainment and recreation. To some, they are life and death. And for others, it's a job. But to some, athletics are like the Army. It's not a job. It's an adventure. Enter my stepdaughter Brianna, who is in a highly inquisitive stage. At 10, a whole new world opens up to her every day. There's the usual pre-teen events that we are enduring, the experiences I used to watch other guys sweat when I was single.

My career got a kick in the syntax last Thursday. It wasn't anything major. It was more like a cleaning of my glasses. My vision was becoming blurred. Suddenly, the things I used to get excited about were mundane. Those senses I used to pride myself on were dull. My specs were becoming as dark as Anna Kournikova's tennis career. I needed a fresh perspective with rosy lenses - an injection of youth and innocence to act like Windex. My stepdaughter Brianna came to my rescue, again.

bobp@herald-mail.com Traditions are some of the great things about sports, but they aren't for everyone. With the opening of football season, traditions will be stacking up like cord wood. Tailgate parties, a mountaineer firing a musket every time WVU gains a yard and school fight songs are among the ones which will be polished up for the season. A newer one might be Notre Dame struggling to reach .500 to get a bowl bid. I tend to get a little queasy when it comes to "Tradition.

For more than 30 years, the Antietam Exchange Club has hosted its annual Christmas Party for Kids not only to make sure children enjoy the holiday, but to offer their parents a little help by donating diapers and other necessities. Arthur Schneider, Exchange Club member and event co-chair, said Saturday during this year's party at the Masonic Temple in downtown Hagerstown that organizers planned for about 200 people. "Each child got to sit with Santa Claus and talk about Christmas," Schneider said.

bobp@herald-mail.com I'm a novice when it comes to this fatherhood thing. Actually, I just got my card upgrading me from rookie status. There weren't any tests or papers to fill out. My field promotion was granted when Brianna, my nine-year-old stepdaughter, signed her name with "Love" in front of it. But I have done a lot of studying in my quest to make the grade in front of my personal promotion board. Any father will tell you that you have to watch to learn. Just the other day, I was watching Brianna as she tried to figure out the secret of her new skateboard.

bobp@herald-mail.com I've come to realize that I am in a mixed marriage. Easy now, this isn't a statement of social implications. It's more of one of wedded reality. I think this is the time of year that most guys realize there is an imbalance in their relationships. It's the NCAA Tournament ... and if you are married, sometimes it gives a different meaning to the term March Madness. I live in one of probably many households where total happiness and harmony are considered "remote" possibilities.

An old adage seems to keep following me. It's "Those who can't do, -----. " In my case, the blank is filled with "write. " That's a saying which I've heard easily tailored to other professions - like, "Those who can't do, (either) teach, coach or sue. " Recently, I was reminded of how much I can't do. So, true to form, I decided to write about it to clear the record. A couple of weeks ago, I had one of those brushes with futility during one of my stepdaughter Brianna's youth soccer practices.

HAGERSTOWN - Ed Dorsey is committed to the community and to youth. It's that commitment that landed him a role as technology cluster leader for the Hagerstown YMCA's Black Achievers program in 2004 when no one else stepped up, adding to his volunteer efforts as steering committee president. Dorsey worked with the program for three years until his younger son, Eddie, went to college last fall. Then he and his wife, LaSaundra, decided it was time to step back and focus on their younger daughters - Brianna, 15, and Olivia, 11. Their oldest son, E.J., is 23 and graduated from the University of Michigan with an undergraduate degree in theater.
