Best Bets

Phillies vs. Nationals

Where -- RFK Stadium, Washington

When -- Tonight, 7:05; tomorrow, 4:10 p.m.; Sunday, 1:05 p.m.

What now? -- Tickets starting at just $7 remain for all three games of the Nationals' final series of their first season in Washington. And now that the Orioles have played their last home game of the year, this is your last chance to see major league baseball until the spring. Philadelphia is still alive - barely - for the National League wild card, so maybe Washington will do a better job of playing the spoiler than the Orioles did.

Mid-Atlantic Small Boat Festival

Where -- Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, St. Michaels

When -- Tomorrow, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

What now? -- You can participate in boat-building demonstrations and watch sailing, paddling and rowing competitions as well as meet boat owners from across the East Coast. It's just a small step up from those paddleboats in the Inner Harbor. Admission is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors, $5 for ages 6 to 17 and free for children under 5. For details, call 410-745-2916, ext. 109.

College football

Virginia vs. Maryland

Where -- Byrd Stadium, College Park

When -- Tomorrow, noon

What now? -- The Terps' homecoming game is being shown on Ch. 54, but if you feel like waking up early and going to the game, the atmosphere should be exciting as they try to hand the No. 19 Cavaliers (3-0) their first loss of the season. If history is any indication, the chances of a Terps victory are pretty good: They are 46-19-2 in homecoming games. Tickets can be purchased at the game or by calling 301-314-7070 before 5 p.m. today.

Pro wrestling

Live Championship Wrestling

Where -- Fort Meade Pavilion, Odenton

When -- Tomorrow, 8 p.m.

What now? -- Jerry "The King" Lawler and former World Wrestling Entertainment star Billy Gunn face off in the main event on a card that features eight matches. If you've watched any of the Orioles' games lately, you should be used to predetermined outcomes. Admission is $20 for ringside seats and $15 for general admission. For details, call 301-677-7758 or 301-677-6969.

Pro football

Jets vs. Ravens

Where -- M&T Bank Stadium

When -- Sunday, 4:05 p.m.

What now? -- The game is sold out, but plenty of overpriced tickets ranging from $89 to $411 are available at the ticket site - and if you buy them today, you can have them sent to you by overnight mail. That might seem like a bit much to pay, but you could be able to say you were at the game where the Ravens turned their season around.
