PHILADELPHIA — When Roy Halladay came off the field after his historic performance in the opening game of the Reds-Phillies National League Division Series, his teammates closed the clubhouse door behind him, then stood and applauded. But the cheering lasted just a few seconds before Halladay cut it off. "All he said was let's win two more," Phillies reliever Ryan Madson said. That's because as brilliant as Halladay was in becoming just the second pitcher to throw a postseason no-hitter, it won't mean anything if the Phillies don't win two of the possibly next four games with the Reds.

COLLEGE PARK -- For each inductee he introduced Friday night, emcee Chick Hernandez ran through a list of that person's accomplishments at the University of Maryland. For most who were announced, the 400 people gathered at tables in the Heise Room at the Samuel Riggs Alumni Center would give a standard applause as the inductee was led from the back corner of the room to the front and eventually to their seat. But when Hernandez introduced Len Bias, the 400 rose from their seats and clapped for an extended period as members of Bias' family - his parents and two of his siblings - was led to the front of the room.

One very simple way that may increase the revenues for the Hippodrome would be to modernize one thing - the seating (" Hippodrome finances get a rewrite," Aug. 5). I would attend more shows if I was not going to have to sit in the very cramped, (I weigh 165 pounds and stand 5-foot 10-inches tall) and very hard seats. I can only imagine the discomfort of those bigger than I. What you lose in capacity you will make up for in repeat business. Ed Slater, Baltimore

The two women who successfully challenged the constitutionality of the federal law banning same-sex marriage received honorary degrees during Johns Hopkins University's commencement ceremonies in Baltimore on Thursday. Many in the audience of students, families and alumni cheered loudly for Edith Windsor and her attorney Roberta Kaplan as they accepted the honors in person. Windsor's case went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, and resulted in a key provision of the Defense of Marriage Act being declared unconstitutional.

Arbutus parade chairman deserves applause for job well done Again this year, we would like to express our sincere appreciation to George Kendrick and his team for organizing a great July 4 in Arbutus. The parade, band and children's activities made for a delightful family day. It was also good to see "Mr. George" riding as one of the grand marshals, along with Jeff Utzinger. A job well done!

My husband and I were treated to a most wonderful performance of "High School Musical Jr. " at Catonsville Middle School this past weekend! The students not only served as actors on stage but some, like our daughter, Paige, worked behind the scenes operating the sound, music and lighting systems. All the students are to be commended for sharing their talents on stage and backstage. This community is truly blessed with support from teachers, parents, neighbors and businesses.

What a bunch of grumpy gills we have in this town. What a bunch of whine lovers. Baltimore just played host to an amazing weekend event, unlike anything seen here since mustachioed men rebuilt downtown after the Great Fire of 1904. And what do we get? Drizzly rain on the parade. It's suggested that neither the crowds nor the TV audiences were as big as the promoters say. Not all the hotels sold out - the one on Fayette Street was only 90 percent of capacity. Sales of steamed crabs at a restaurant a mile away were slow.

Ring-counters will immediately note that the Moscow Circus only has a single ring, unlike the hyper-busy three rings of an American circus. But that single focus of activity, set up at the Baltimore Arena through Sunday, is still bursting with circusThat characteristic aside, there are other things that make this circus distinctively Russian.

Debates are a tricky thing to judge. Everyone has an opinion and people view the candidates' performances through a political lense. Pro-war viewers likely identify with Rick Santorum or Tim Pawlenty. Those who think we need to pull out of overseas wars ASAP probably view those candidates and their debate performances negatively.  But there are some rough metrics that can help make some sense of who won the debate. One way is to count the number of times a candidate was applauded.

THE PRESIDENT:  Hello, everybody!  Welcome to the White House.  (Applause.)  And welcome to the Super Bowl Champion -- world champion -- Baltimore Ravens.  (Applause.)  Everybody can have a seat.  That's why we set up chairs.  (Laughter.)        Now, I suspect that these guys are wondering, what kind of introduction is that?  No smoke machine.  (Laughter.)  No fire cannons.  Obama didn't even tear up chunks of turf and rub them on his suit.  (Laughter.)  That reminds me, by the way -- please don't do that on the South Lawn.  (Laughter.)

Consider this our encore applause for Macklemore's performance at Preakness.

Here's a link to the song's video on YouTube....

The orchestra roars and the pianist's hands are a blur: thunderous octaves in one hand against single notes in the other, then a fusillade of double octaves that brings the first movement to a majestic conclusion.Many in the audience begin to applaud; others, who consider themselves more knowledgeable, don't -- and they look either embarrassed for or scornfully at those who do. The applause peters out. Soloist and conductor confer for a moment, the orchestra tunes and the piece starts up again with the second movement.

"Applause" is about a larger-than-life star, and its lead role has traditionally been played by a larger-than-life star. Lauren Bacall originated it on Broadway, and Bette Davis played it in the movie on which "Applause" is based, "All About Eve."So how does a mere TV star fare? In the Broadway-bound revival that opened last night at the Mechanic Theatre, "Hart to Hart's" Stefanie Powers does fine.If you're always aware that Powers is acting, always on, (maybe even always Jennifer Hart), well, some of that is built into the role.
