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.

At this month's BET Awards, the Viewers' Choice award seemed like a battle of front-runners. Nominees Beyonce, Jay-Z and Kanye West were seated in the front row, a skip away from the podium. Chris Brown and Lil Wayne were also nominated. They all lost to four teenage boys. Mindless Behavior, the Los Angeles boy band of Prodigy, Princeton, Ray Ray and Roc Royal, bounced up to the stage to accept the night's only award decided on by fans. After catching his breath, Princeton ended his speech with a declaration.

NEW ORLEANS - Twelve years ago, Steve Bisciotti arrived for Super Bowl XXXV as a minority owner of the Ravens, content to remain in the background and have fun with his friends. Bisciotti, his wife, Renee, and his assistant, Pam Lund, arranged for 250 family members to travel to Tampa, Fla., for the game. He rented a corporate tent and hired a band for pregame entertainment, and then he watched the game from a suite at Raymond James Stadium. After the Ravens beat the New York Giants, 34-7, to capture the franchise's lone title, Bisciotti was on the field to watch the trophy presentation and then he took his sons inside the victorious locker room.

They won't even get a fig leaf. Next month, virtually the entire cast of the baseball drama Take Me Out will spend 10 long minutes on stage each night in the buff. Ten of the 11 actors - all volunteers, average Joes with day jobs like fixing computers - won't have the benefit of towels, strategically placed props or artful lighting. It's enough to give even the most dedicated of thespians stage fright. "When I heard that I got the part, my first reaction wasn't hesitancy, exactly, but 'Oh no, how am I going to do this?"

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.

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.
