Phil Booth gets the basketball at the top of the key and, in a flash, practice at Mount St. Joseph comes to a halt. The reason? Kameron Williams is poised in front of him, inches away. The floor is spread, and the Gaels' two star guards are set to go one-on-one. Gripping the ball with both hands, Booth swings it slowly, left to right, right to left, a human pendulum set to burst. A second later, he drives to the right with an explosive first step that shakes Williams, giving Booth a clear path to the basket for an easy layup.

I've come to think of it as the political equivalent of global warming: Election season seems to get longer and more heated every cycle. I'm not quite as distressed about this as that little girl from Colorado, melting down because she's tired of "Bronco Bama" and Mitt Romney. (Although, note to Mom: your kid is upset, however cutely, and your first thought is to grab your phone and YouTube her?) But really, the noise level this year has been close to deafening, even here in the decidedly unswingy-state of Maryland.

Epic is probably too strong a word, but Wednesday night's Orioles-Yankees battle was another great playoff game. And once again, TBS delivered a telecast worthy of it in almost every way. Just as the images from Monday's victory for the O's at Camden Yards viscerally connected viewers to the joy in downtown Baltimore, Wednesday's made you feel the pain in the Bronx deep in your gut. Those images of the Yankees fans dancing and high-fiving late in...

Let's be frank, life is too short to waste much time on a sports telecast as boring as Sunday's football game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Kansas City Chiefs. First, much of the blame should go to the two teams: They were awful. The Ravens easily could have lost by two touchdowns against a competent offense. I only offer that bit of game review to argue that not all the criticism I am about to offer should be directed at CBS Sports and the team of play-by-play announcer Ian Eagle and analyst Dan Fouts.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Cal Ripken Jr. was in the TBS broadcast booth for Friday night's American League wild-card game, alongside former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Smoltz and play-by-play man Ernie Johnson . Ripken had previously been a postseason studio analyst, but he only recently started working from the booth. And this is the first time, of course, that he has played this role as a broadcaster for an Orioles playoff game. "I'm enjoying being here," Ripken said before the game.

This is a story about recycling, and how everything is politically charged this election season. My husband carried our newspapers - which, by the way, he believes are hopelessly in the bag for President Barack Obama - to the curb the night before the recycling truck was scheduled. He left them there, not in a recycling bin, but in the cute, little box I keep in the kitchen to hold them. Next morning, the men on the recycling truck took the newspapers - and my cute, little box - and I cursed them.

The ESPN "Monday Night Football" crew earned my respect before the game between the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals even started. It came during the pregame moment of silence for former Ravens owner Art Modell.  Placed at ground level, a camera shot the length of the field into the top of the stands in one of the end zones. It was shooting into a yellow ball of setting sun that was seeping through the stands onto the field.  The muted sun suffused the entire shot in a golden glow.
