Host Cat Deeley starts the show by telling us that six dancers are in danger and two will go home at the end of the evening. It's a Broadway group number to "New York, New York" from "On the Town" - the guys are sailors, baseball players, a cop, and businessmen. The women are waitresses and wives. Sigh. Also, Marcquet is in a tuxedo with a white jacket that has the unfortunate effect of making him look like a servant or something, in the pre-Civil Rights era. Ugh. This is maybe not the best way to indulge 1940s nostalgia?

Tommy Hunter, the Orioles' affable and outspoken right-hander, has a simple plea for team management as it begins to craft the 2013 roster. "I don't want to go anywhere. Don't trade me away. That's all I am asking," Hunter says with a smile, ratcheting up his voice an octave for wistful effect. "I don't want to leave. I like Baltimore. I like the city. This is a good fit. The guys are good and they bring in people that care. " No question Hunter cares. As goofy as he can be off the field, he's the opposite on it, a fierce competitor who, like most young pitchers, sometimes can be his worst enemy.

LONDON - A sartorial revolution has occurred in the land where bowler hats and cloth caps once were the national headwear for decades. Britons have fallen in love with baseball caps. The hats made famous in America are the only headgear included in the latest retail prices index released yesterday by Britain's Office for National Statistics. No top hats, no cricket caps, not even bonnets for the royal races at Ascot made the list of 650 goods and services that serve as a theoretical national shopping basket.

Good morning," George Dumas says as he shuffles toward a cluster of tables at the back of the restaurant, near dueling window posters of a gigantic double cheeseburger and a behemoth honey mustard snack wrap. "All's quiet on the western front," Dumas announces, "except in Iraq." Actually, the noise level is pretty high inside this McDonald's on Powder Mill Road, hard by the Beltsville exit of Interstate 95.
