Whether it's hosting "Inside the NBA" or calling a Major League Baseball playoff series, Ernie Johnson makes sports broadcasting seem easy. There has not been much joy for Orioles fans with the Birds losing the first two games of the American League Championship Series to the Kansas City Royals, and TBS delivering lackluster telecasts. The delay of the first pitch on opening night in Baltimore because super-bright TV lights on the set of the TBS pre-game show in center field were left on was an unforgivable gaffe.

Used to be when Rick Chiricosta, chief financial officer of a Cleveland life insurance company, had a question about IRS regulations or 401(k) plans, he'd call a professional, dig through piles of data to find the answer or perhaps go without the information.Then came Ernie, the Web-based consulting service from Ernst & Young LLP that's run by a native Baltimorean from his Howard County home.The service allows subscribers to send e-mail to consultants with questions about such things as what kind of software to buy and complex tax rules.

The dawn of the baseball season is an existential moment. For big market teams with owners willing to pay for marquee players, and general managers who build playoff-bound teams, it is a time of great anticipation. It's also a time of hope, albeit dim, for those die-hard fans of teams who are off the playoff pace by double digits year in and year out. Their cautious optimism is one that illuminates the human condition. French philosopher Albert Camus contended that life is absurd, that most of us are like the Greek tragic figure Sisyphus, who was condemned to roll a huge boulder up a mountain, only to have it roll back down as he reached the top. The essence of humanity, Camus argued, is in the moment where Sisyphus turns around to see the boulder once again at the bottom of the hill knowing he must trudge down to his toil once more, aware that this effort will again be both great and futile.

The sound you just heard was the crash of the Sing & Snore Ernie market.In a very 1990s twist on O'Henry's "Gift of the Magi," some pre-Christmas speculators tried to corner the market on this season's putative hot toy, figuring to make a quick profit by selling the $30 doll at grossly inflated prices.Instead, they learned a little lesson about supply and demand: Cornering the supply doesn't mean diddly if there's no demand. As Christmas approached, and newspapers filled with classified ads for the singing, snoring Muppet -- upward of 70 ads a day as the market bottomed out -- sellers who had once hoped to make as much as $500 slashed prices to $300, $200, $150, $60, even $39.Even the day after Christmas, almost two dozen ads appeared in The Sun, many with pie-in-the-sky asking prices.

"Good Grief" is bad news.The new Fox sitcom, which premieres at 9:30 Sunday night on WBFF-TV (Channel 45), is not very funny, has no consistent focus and is likely to offend gays and lesbians with all its low-rent homosexual humor.

Warren Pepper (Joel Brooks) is the son of the mortuary's original owner. Warren is conservative and traditional.

COLLEGE PARK - He wears the same No. 25 jersey worn by his father, a number that hangs from the ceiling of Comcast Center as a reminder of a career that included a record-setting performance 35 years ago. That is where the on-court similarity ends between Jon and Ernie Graham. If his father was known for being a high-volume shooter during his career at Maryland, the son is quickly gaining a reputation as a high-energy role player who does everything but shoot. After transferring from Penn State last summer and being granted a hardship waiver by the NCAA in order to play immediately rather than sit out, Graham's role has grown dramatically over the past month.

It's finale time! I hope most of you are still invested after the tragic Philimination of the Snowboarders last week. Sure, they were the easy favorites, but now you have to dig down and ask yourself who you really want to win. You all know Ernie is my TV boyfriend, so perhaps I didn't have to dig that deep to find a team to cheer. So let's start in Panama, where everyone leaves just after midnight. They're flying to Atlanta. Sandy is mad, you guys, and I couldn't figure out why she hated Atlanta so much until she says that Amani and Marcus are from there.

Are your bellies laden with Thanksgiving leftovers? Would you like to vicariously burn some calories by watching people race around the world? Great! Except tonight, it's not so much racing around the world as it is racing cars and pigeons in Belgium, and it's not so much about burning calories because it's Waffle Time! Quick, someone write me a theme song for Waffle Time. I bet you forgot that last week was a cliffhanger, right? I had a six-hour drive to my Thanksgiving dinner, so it slipped my mind, too. But this isn't [all]
