As Ray Lewis danced onto his home field Sunday to face the Indianapolis Colts in an opening-round playoff game, the great Ravens linebacker hoped he was saying goodbye to Baltimore but not to the NFL. Not quite yet. After a sloppy start, his teammates did their part to send the Lewis retirement tour on to Denver, beating the Colts 24-9 before an announced crowd of 71,379 that had turned out to bid No. 52 farewell. It was an arrhythmic affair, defined by ill-timed turnovers, dropped passes and a few long plays.

PHILADELPHIA - Maybe the end of one era will finally allow the NBA and the Washington Wizards to usher in another one. The Michael Jordan farewell tour is over. Finally. That's what most of this NBA season has been about: the Wizards and Jordan. Ever since Jordan and the Chicago Bulls won their sixth title five years ago and Jordan went into Retirement No. 2, the league has feared that the younger crop of superstars couldn't carry the league. So they were just as happy as Jordan was when he announced he would play again two years ago, this time in the nation's capital with the lowly Wizards.

After almost a decade together, Double Dagger is breaking up, the band said on their website. "Like any relationship's end, it's complex, but for us it mostly comes down to time. As the band got older and grew and changed, the people in it did too, and our individual lives are pulling us towards other pursuits," read a note signed by all three members.  Nolen Strals, Bruce Willen, and Brian Dubin formed the band in 2002, and after Dubin left, the remaining members were joined by Denny Bowen on drums.

On a triumphant farewell tour, ageless diva Cher gets the last laugh on critics. Ah, Cher. For 40 years she's been rolling through the pop-culture landscape like a glittery Mardi Gras float. Through the decades she's sashayed, from her days with Sonny to the winner's circle at the Oscars to her current farewell tour, which makes a stop tonight at 1st Mariner Arena and which will have played more than 125 U.S. cities by the time it ends in April. Critics along Cher's parade route snort.

This is it, fans. Honest.After eight years on the road together, including a farewell tour that lasted longer than an Energizer six-pack, the final Naomi and Wynona Judd concert is at hand.Take their word for it. This is it. Positively, absolutely, guaranteed.The concert takes place at 9 tonight at Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro, Tenn., where 10,000 fans will watch in person and, if they all wish, millions more can see it via pay-per-view.Naomi, 45, the mom half of this most successful mother-and-daughter duo, isn't exactly raving at the prospect of saying so long, y'all -- she says she'd rather run naked through a meeting of truck drivers.

As the old song says: How can we miss her if she won't go away? Cher, the pop diva who has sung about wishing she could turn back time, is back again in the Baltimore-Washington area this week to say goodbye -- supposedly for the final time -- on her marathon "Living Proof: The Farewell Tour." The Oct. 10 show at MCI Center in Washington is Cher's third stop in these environs -- she's played one date at MCI, another at Baltimore's 1st Mariner Arena -- since she embarked on the tour last year.

Angelos' reputation scares off top talent John Eisenberg's column of Aug. 26 says that reaching the goal of a balanced youth-veteran mix will not be easy for the Orioles. I say it will be impossible while Peter Angelos owns the team. He has the money and, at one time, I thought, the intelligence to hire capable front-office management to do the job. Actually, he's already done it several times. However, because of his insatiable ego, and his failure to let people do the jobs that he's paid them for, he has driven them from the Orioles into the waiting arms of other major-league teams.

"The Phantom of the Opera" returned to the Hippodrome Theatre Friday night with its famed chandelier looming impressively over the audience, and its boogie-man, descending-scale tune for the title character booming ominously into the house. For the uninitiated, this tour — said to be the final one for the original production — should provide all the sensory appeal that helped turn this Andrew Lloyd Webber show into the ultimate musical cash cow (more than $5 billion grossed worldwide, over 80 million people served since 1986 )

Sunrise, sunset. The actor known by just his last name - Topol - first played the part of Tevye the Milkman in "Fiddler on the Roof" in Tel Aviv in 1966, when he was 30 years old. Some 44 years later, he will play Tevye for the twenty-seven-hundred-and-somethingth time when he opens Tuesday at the Hippodrome Theatre in what is being billed as his farewell tour. "I stopped counting after I reached 2,500 performances," Topol says over the phone. "This is one of the five best parts ever written for a male actor-singer.

With roaring guitars, relentless drums and electric stage chemistry, punk-rock trio Sleater-Kinney said goodbye Thursday night at the 9:30 Club in Washington, marking what may be its final visit to the area with a nearly two-hour show. Guitarist-singers Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein intertwined searing vocals and guitar lines as drummer Janet Weiss pounded away behind them, driving the band through a remarkable set that drew from their last five albums. They tore through 24 songs, many of them from last year's celebrated release The Woods, and included several that longtime fans had never before heard live.

And the band plays on. Six months after Mayor Martin O'Malley said he was quitting his band, the Celtic rock ensemble is still jigging with no final gig in sight. Except, perhaps, Inauguration Day 2007. The Web site for the mayor's band tells fans to keep checking for "farewell concert tour dates," that the prolonged send-off for O'Malley's March has "17 counties to go." The band's only scheduled show, however, was for last night's Irish Festival at the Fifth Regiment Armory in Baltimore.

LEVI LEIPHEIMER. If you recognize the name, you probably have a sore tush this morning after finishing a 50-mile ride. Which means most of you never have heard of Levi or his Leipheimer. Perhaps you've heard of Lance Armstrong, however. He apparently rides a bike. If you didn't know that, welcome back from your trip to Pluto. This planet has been so thoroughly Lanced, undiscovered tribes in the Amazon jungle now are wearing yellow Livestrong bracelets. Armstrong has been great for cycling, cancer awareness, motivational speaking and Sheryl Crow CD sales.

CHICAGO - A heady seven-game road trip ended for the Orioles yesterday with something for everyone. The club brought home five wins, including yesterday's wind-chilled, 11-3 blowout of the Chicago White Sox that gave the team its second consecutive road-series win. Thanks to Jason Johnson's seven solid innings, every member of the starting rotation got a win. Playing his final game at Comiskey Park, Cal Ripken picked up several keepsakes on the first...

Did you hear the one about the coach who went 8-50 in his first two seasons but lived happily ever after? "Who gets to stick around after a start like that?" Vermont's Tom Brennan said. "I'm such a dinosaur. It's like I won the lottery, and I get to pay everyone back. The Tom Brennan farewell tour couldn't be going better." That captivating college basketball story makes a stop at UMBC tonight, where the Catamounts (15-3) will try to extend a 12-game winning streak and their dominance of the America East conference.
