ASKING YOU, THE public, to pay for a playpen to benefit the wealthy millionaire owners of professional football teams is more than the height of arrogance. It's an intrusion on decency that obliterates any vestige of respect that might remain between sports management and the ticket-buying patron.P. T. Barnum believed a sucker is born every minute and the National Football League is taking his "carny" creed to new heights. The NFL's latest caper raises millions to build new stadiums and ensures that club owners will profit at the fans' expense.

First, Karen McVearry spent $30 to join the Hannah Montana fan club and buy presale concert tickets for her 9-year-old daughter Maddie. Too late - they had sold out. The 36-year-old Catonsville mom tried again the day the tickets went on sale to the public. As Maddie played soccer, McVearry stood on the sidelines, a cell phone in each hand, calling Ticketmaster, while a friend also called and tried ordering online. Still too late. The Jan. 8 Hannah Montana show at 1st Mariner Arena sold out in minutes.

If there is no winner in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing, the pot will stand at nearly $1 billion — head and shoulders above the existing U.S. record lottery jackpot of $656 million. Tuesday's massive Mega Millions jackpot — just $20 million short of the record — drew a frenzy of ticket-buying as casual, daily and irregular lottery players threw their money into the pool. At one point on Tuesday before the nighttime drawing, Marylanders were handing over cash for the $2 Mega Millions tickets at a rate of almost 101 tickets a second, or 6,041 per minute, said Maryland lottery spokeswoman Erica Palmisano.

For the first time in 15 years, the Orioles will be sending out postseason ticket invoices to plan holders starting Thursday morning. All season ticketholders should get the invoices - making them eligible to buy tickets to all levels of potential playoffs at Camden Yards - by next week, and perhaps as early as Friday. “It's very exciting for us. The fact we are having daily postseason meetings to prepare all elements for the postseason is not something we have experienced in recent years,” said Greg Bader, the Orioles' director of communications.

The nation watched as winning numbers for the record-setting Mega Millions jackpot were revealed Friday night, and then waited all day Saturday to learn the identity of a lucky Baltimore County shopper who would split the $656 million. His or her identity, however, remains a mystery. Three winning tickets were sold for the multistate lottery — in Maryland, Kansas and Illinois — and the ticket holders will split the pot. While the winners' identities remained unknown early Sunday, the buying frenzy in which 1.5 billion tickets were sold for $1 apiece turned to wild guessing as to who they are and why they haven't stepped forward.

Baltimore must be a very generous place, because just about everybody who was asked said they'd share the $242 million Mega-Million lottery prize if they happened to be the lucky winner in Friday night's drawing. However, no one won Friday night's drawing, so the prize will be $290 million on Tuesday. The estimated cash out payment is $182.6 million. But on Friday, Rick Tamborine, who was busy selling lottery tickets at the Royal Farms in Hampden, said, "I'd take a trip to the moon" if he won. He'd purchased $20 worth himself.

It sounds hard to believe, but a school could end up losing money by being in the Final Four. And that's because of the good, ol' NCAA. According to a report in The Dallas Morning News, the NCAA slaps schools in the Final Four with required costs, such as spending $32,000 on a party and buying 470 hotel rooms at a four-night minimum - sometimes at a hotel far from the arena - while it also has cut the number of tickets allotted to each team. This year, each got 3,750, down from 4,500 six years ago. (The schools can then resell the rooms and tickets.

He hopes to run as a Democrat and a Republican. He's red, white and blue, as signified by his new book, I Am America (And So Can You!). His phony laugh is much better than Hillary Rodham Clinton's, and he certainly can fake cell phone interruptions more entertainingly than Rudolph W. Giuliani. How can voters not respond to Stephen Colbert's newly announced bid to become president of the United States? Though Mr. Colbert has designs on running only in his home state of South Carolina, where he has contacted both party organizations about getting on the ballot for the January primary, maybe that will prove to be only a beginning.

Ever since Steely Dan was listed in one of the subscription series at the Merriweather Post Pavilion this summer, Dan fans have been champing at the bit to buy tickets.And no wonder. Not only is the reunion the first time Walter Becker and Donald Fagen have worked together as Steely Dan since 1981, but the group's last tour was 19 years ago.But when tickets for the show didn't go on sale as announced, some fans got suspicious. Rumors began to spread, and within weeks, it was taken as gospel that the reunion had been scotched, and that there would be no tour.

I AM POISED at my high-speed computer ready to buy the first available single-game Ravens tickets from Ticketmaster.com. I enter the number and select the "any price" option from "any section." "There are no tickets available that match your request," I read from the screen. I try again. None available. A minute after they have gone on sale, all Baltimore Ravens tickets have sold out. I am hardly alone in my unsuccessful attempt to buy tickets at their face value. Just like last year.

One weekend each football season, Joe Cooper rounds up his Atlanta Falcons fan club and heads for New Orleans. The 100 or so "Falcons Fan-Atics" often make a pit stop on Bourbon Street, then pile into the Superdome to exhort their Falcons against the New Orleans Saints. But this season, the annual road trip has been canceled. Cooper and the gang were stunned to learn this summer that seats for the Dec. 26 Falcons at Saints contest were being paired with tickets for the Seattle Seahawks at Saints game on Sept.
