What's the official record for locking your keys in your car?

I did it again last night in downtown Baltimore - with the engine running.

Marvin Lewis says if I do it four more times, he wins the pool.

I got out of my vehicle to go over some directions with a friend who made the ill-advised choice of following me, and I slammed the door behind me. For whatever reason, it locked. And for whatever reason, I still don't carry a spare key.

I'm planning on wearing one around my neck, even while driving.

Thank goodness for AAA. J.C. shows up in his tow truck with a slight grin on his face and says, "I laughed when I got the call." I assumed it was because, well, the engine was running and I was turning blue because I wasn't wearing a jacket. But that wasn't the reason.

"I listen to you on the radio all the time."

And I thought it would be cool getting recognized on the street.

Don't you agree that Cal Ripken has to be at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday, even if it's to stand in the middle of the field and wave?

Let's bring out all the legends.

Speaking of which, the Nationals have decided not to offer Frank Robinson a position in the organization. And they decided to wait until now to tell him.

There must be a job for him with the Orioles. I'm just not sure what. But he belongs here.

Reliever Tim Worrell retired after 14 seasons. The Orioles signed him as a free agent in 2000 and then released him before the ink dried on his contract. I knew it was quick, but I had no idea he lasted only five games until checking his stats.

Worrell made the most of them, though, going 2-2 with a 7.36 ERA. He allowed 12 hits and three home runs in 7 1/3 innings.

I still thought the Orioles gave up on him a bit too soon. He signed with the Cubs and went 3-4 with a 2.47 ERA in 54 games.
