Haloti Ngata did an interview with Dan Patrick that will appear in this week's issue of Sports Illustrated . The highlight, without question, was the defensive tackle telling Patrick which NFL quarterback he enjoys tackling most. "I love hitting Tom Brady because he always complains," Ngata said. "He thinks he should never be touched. " Terrell Suggs is the resident Raven when it comes to calling out Brady for getting preferential treatment from officials, but Ngata said he doesn't get flagged for hitting the Patriots QB because his “hits are usually clean.” Other interview highlights included Ngata's talking about his twinkle toes, playing tight end and telling Patrick that he would “probably try to stick my knee in your neck or something” if Patrick went after his knees.

Just before she took my call earlier this week, an NBC Sports spokeswoman said, she had phoned back someone she assumed to be a member of the media. But all the fellow wanted to do was yell at her about NBC's addition of Keith Olbermann as a co-host of the Sunday night highlights/preview show Football Night in America. Olbermann's liberal viewpoint and unrelenting criticism of President Bush on his nightly Countdown MSNBC news show can have that kind of polarizing effect. But anyone who remembers his pairing with Dan Patrick on ESPN's SportsCenter recalls what a terrific sports studio presence Olbermann is and should be glad to welcome him to a regular network sports gig. Dick Ebersol, NBC Universal Sports and Olympics chairman, said: "Most importantly to me, the studio world of sports has had very few wildly successful practitioners and, in Keith's case, it's more than being successful; in many ways he and Dan Patrick were pioneers in the SportsCenter world.

LET'S SAY you're a salesman. You're out making calls all day, and you need some diversion. After all, Alec Baldwin just came into your office and said you can't drink the coffee until you close on some deals. And Kevin Spacey is refusing to give you new leads. (Meanwhile, you're thinking the guys who made Along Came Polly and Pay It Forward shouldn't be telling you how to sell lots down at Glengarry.) So you decide to pass the time listening to ESPN Radio (heard locally on WJFK (1300 AM)

Without tradition, Tevye the milkman warned us, we'd be like a fiddler on the roof. And what a place to be -- you'd probably have to end up adjusting the antenna.Tradition is nothing to sneeze at. Unless, of course, the tradition calls for sneezing. Yesterday, on Thanksgiving, many of us perpetuated tradition. We ate turkey. We watched football. We NTC dressed up like Ricky Ricardo and sang "Babaloo." (You don't do that at your house?)Today, I'm here to maintain tradition -- the Thanksgiving sports column.

American literary culture appears to be in worse jeopardy than ever. For years, Cassandras have been bemoaning that multinationals have taken over publishing. Myopically focused on the bottom line, they have squandered mega-advances on the likes of the Danielle Steels and the John Grishams, allowing precious few books of literary merit to rise to the surface. That's old news.What's new and of greater cause for alarm is the sad fate of the few works of literary fiction that had been finding publishers.

Football Night in America 7 p.m. [chs. 11, 4] Not only can you can catch up on the day's NFL highlights before NBC's Sunday night game, but you also can watch Keith Olbermann (right) not be snippy with Chris Matthews. That is, unless some network suit has decided Matthews should replace Dan Patrick.

Joe Flacco got married last weekend, but we haven’t heard how the Ravens quarterback feels about being a married man. Until now. Flacco appeared on “The Dan Patrick Show” on Friday and he talked about how he’s still in love with his wife and how he doesn’t plan on throwing her any footballs on his honeymoon. “I don’t want to break her nose on our honeymoon or anything like that,” Flacco told host Dan Patrick . Flacco told Patrick that he invited his offensive linemen and other select teammates to the ceremony, which was held at a church in Philadelphia.

Quote: "This was a home to me for three years. Every time I come here I do think about coming to the stadium as a kid. So it definitely inspires and drives me a bit more." -- The Reds' Eduardo Perez about Olympic Stadium, where his father, Tony, played for Montreal after starring with the dominant Cincinnati teams of the '70s.It's a fact: The Rockies' Vinny Castilla is no Coors Field creation. Nine of his major-league-leading 14 homers have come on the road.Who's hot: The Expos' F. P. Santangelo led off the first with a double yesterday, extending his hitting streak to 14 games.

Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski has been making the media rounds since it was announced last week that he was getting back in the boxing ring. It will be his first pro fight since 2006. He told my colleague Jamison Hensley that he expects to profit only $100 from the fight . On "The Dan Patrick Show," he said he wants to fight Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco . And in an appearance on ESPN's "First Take" this morning, Zbikowski said that he thinks Ravens Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata could be a heavyweight title contender if he took up boxing.
