The Hagerstown Colt League White All-Stars came up on the short end of both a pitchers' duel and a slugfest on Sunday, and the lights went out on the 2007 season. Brad Comport's solo home run in the sixth inning gave North Allegheny a 2-1 victory and spoiled Brandon Knight's gem in the first game of the East Zone West Regional championship round, forcing a deciding game at Hellane Park. Playing their third game of the day and fifth in two days, North Allegheny never let up, scoring six runs before Hagerstown ever swung a bat and rolling to a 14-7 victory and the title.

To some, playing Colt League baseball was the time of their life. But for members of Hagerstown's 1967 and 1971 World Series championship teams, it was the time to shape a lifetime. Just the event of winning a national championship did its part in enhancing the lives and adding direction to the group of 30 players who played for the two teams. And even though it all happened 36 and 40 years ago, the memories were as fresh as yesterday as the two teams gathered to receive a weekend's worth of honors.

The Hagerstown White team had the easy going, while the Hagerstown Red team had a longer and tougher road on Friday in the Colt Region Tournament at Hellane Park. Either way, the road led to victory. In a 4 1/2-inning opener, Noon Jordan went 4-for-4 and Adrian Adams supplied a grand slam home run to lead the White past McCandless, Pa., 19-5. The Red needed a full seven innings, using its last at-bat for a seven-run explosion to take a 12-7 win over Cranberry, Pa. Tonight at 8, both Hagerstown teams will collide in a key winners bracket battle.

The end of the football season is here, and the Super Bowl has ended. And the winner was ... the rain. It rained throughout the entire Super Bowl, making the football and the natural-grass field slippery, and leading to numerous dropped balls and falling players. The first 20 seconds of the game was the fastest-paced of any Super Bowl I've ever seen (which would be about three). Chicago kick returner Devin Hester caught the opening kickoff and ran 92 yards for a touchdown.

Each Sunday, a sampling of edited reader comments will run in The Herald-Mail. Last week's poll question was: Which team will win the Super Bowl? "Go Bears ... oh and impeach Bush and try the whole lot for war crimes. " "The Bears have it. Go Bears. " "I kinda slept through the season this year - since my team was having a not-so-hot year.

Only five days to go until the Super Bowl, and the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears seem to be ready. I feel confident that this Super Bowl will be a memorable one. But the Bears will be the victors, 21-17. Look at the positives and negatives of each team. With the Colts, the main positive is quarterback Peyton Manning. He's been the best quarterback in the regular season for the passt couple of years, but the his his first trip to the big game. Also, rookie running back Joseph Addai is exceptionally good this season.

Here are some of the calls we have received lately: "Hey, where are all the Ravens' fans now? Go Colts!!!!" "To the Hagerstown caller who wants to draft 20 to 100,000 registered Republicans to fight the war in Iraq. OK. Democrats control Congress, do it. First, change age of enlistment, raise some taxes to care for our familles while we are away. This is the first liberal-minded idea I have heard that attempts to control the situation rather than run. " - Falling Waters, W.Va.

Week 14 of the NFL season brings along more clinching of playoff spots and begins a whole new battle - for wild-card playoff spots. The biggest game this week was between Indianapolis and Jacksonville. Indianapolis needed to win this game to hold onto the top seed in the AFC. Indianapolis quarterback Peyton Manning did not have the best of games Sunday, throwing only two touchdowns. The Jaguars were a different story. They made five touchdowns and three field goals and defeated the Colts 44-17.

Week 12 draws to a close for the NFL, and a Super Bowl-winning team drops out of the playoffs this year, the third team of defending champions to do so in six years. I'm talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers. The biggest game of this week was between Pittsburgh and the Baltimore Ravens. Pittsburgh needed this win to even think about the playoffs. The Ravens' defense, ranked second in the NFL, wouldn't allow it. The Ravens sacked Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger nine times, intercepted him twice and recovered a fumble.

It's now Week 7 in the NFL and this week's games couldn't have been better! There was a near-record-breaking field goal, an overtime win and two teams still undefeated. In Atlanta, the Pittsburgh Steelers played the Falcons. The Falcons' quarterback Michael Vick had not thrown more than two touchdowns in a game in his career. This game, however, Vick threw for four touchdowns, three of which were thrown to tight end Alge Crumpler. The other one was thrown to wide receiver Michael Jenkins.
