When my daughter first mentioned that she'd like to see the movie "Hop" the day that it opened, I was a little hesitant for several reasons. First, even though it was opening nationwide on April 1, I didn't know if it would open locally on the same day. I told her and her friends that we'd have to check the local listings a day or two in advance. Then, before I'd commit to taking her to the movie, I needed to read more about it. Would it be suitable? Would it be enjoyable? Would it be worth our hard-earned and limited entertainment dollars?

For the first five practice days of training camp, John Beck has enjoying having the Washington Redskins starting quarterback job all to himself, getting the first-team work while the team waited for Rex Grossman to re-sign and become eligible to take part. On Wednesday, the fifth day of the solo run, Beck sported a new look, switching jerseys from No. 3 to No. 12. A number change during camp usually isn't a big deal, especially for a player who hasn't been in a regular season game since 2007, but Beck is the type who doesn't mind telling a story from start to finish.

The Sharpsburg 9-10 All-Stars found themselves trying to overcome a deficit once again on Sunday in the Maryland State tournament. And once again, they came up just short. Sharpsburg failed in a prime chance to win after tying the losers' bracket game in the sixth before being eliminated in a 12-9 loss to Four County in eight innings. “We got that tying run with the bases loaded but we just couldn't get that last one over the plate,” said Sharpsburg manager Steve Mason.
