In some ways, the Browns were asking for this when they went with such a young roster. By this, I mean losing. By this, I mean agitation. By this, I mean asking a beaten-down, impatient fan base to just wait because going young is the best way to build a team. It is the wisest road, assuming the young players have talent.

There are classical musicians, rock musicians, pop musicians, jazz musicians -- and then there is Elvis Costello, a genre unto himself. For the better part of three decades, the British-born, severely bespectacled Costello has been a remarkable source of interesting, sophisticated, surprising music and music-making, earning a broad fan base with his skills as a singer/songwriter and guitarist. BSO and ELVIS COSTELLO 8 tonight at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Remaining tickets are $34 to $90. Call 410-783-8000 or visit baltimoresymphony.

DOWN -- Disabled list What do Mike Bordick, Pat Hentgen and David Segui have in common? They were all signed as free agents for veteran stability and now reside on the DL. Ouch. Somewhere Aaron Sele chuckles. DOWN -- Bullpen mayhem The bullpen is 1-15 since May 12. Virtually every reliever's role has flopped since. Wasn't this last winter's priority? UP -- Non-waiver trade deadline It's Tuesday at 4 p.m. Do you know where your pending free agents are? UP -- Melvin Mora The hard-working center fielder/shortstop has quietly produced a solid season.

Maryland football will begin spring workouts on March 2 and hold practices at Baltimore's Dunbar High School on March 30 and Middletown High School in Frederick County on April 6. Holding practices on the road represents a new wrinkle for the program, which is eager to reach out to its fan base. Both practices begin at noon and are open to the public. Another new wrinkle: Instead of holding the red-white spring game on a Saturday afternoon, the game will be under the lights on Friday night, April 12 beginning at 7;00 p.m. Maryland was 4-8 last season.

They've given the famous Man in the Yellow Hat a name (Ted), but otherwise all is as it should be in the world of Curious George, a winsome big-screen adaptation of H.A. and Margret Rey's tales of a mischievous monkey and his innocent adventures. The animated film, which adds a few modern touches (a cell phone, for instance), but generally remains true to the original stories, introduces us to George in his native Africa. There, the little guy is a crowd favorite, charming, inquisitive, always with a smile on his face.

From the start, the Roots were an anomaly: a rap group that uses live instruments in lieu of samples and turntables. In the '90s, as hip-hop became flashier and the genre's biggest hits mostly glorified American pathologies - ruthless violence and gross consumerism - the nine-piece Philly unit became more earnestly political. Over the course of 18 years, the Roots, who play Pier Six Pavilion tonight, have remained anomalous. Save for two gold albums - 1999's Things Fall Apart, which contained the Grammy-winning "You Got Me," featuring Erykah Badu, and 2003's Phrenology - the band has never had a true smash.

Chris LeDoux, 56, a former world champion bareback rider who parlayed songs about the rodeo life into a successful country music career, died Wednesday in Cheyenne, Wyo., of complications from liver cancer. He described his music as a combination of "Western soul, sagebrush blues, cowboy folk and rodeo rock 'n' roll." By 1989, he had released 22 albums, which he sold at concerts and rodeos, and had a loyal, if limited, fan base. But Mr. LeDoux soon became a country star, teaming with Garth Brooks for the Grammy-nominated, top 10 hit "Whatcha Gonna Do With a Cowboy" in 1992.
