There he is, tall and lithe, bashfully looking at the camera as he swings a large ax and chops firewood. Next, we're treated to glimpses of him teaching English in Chile and, then, pulling on rubber gloves to scrub a toilet. These scenes may sound about as exciting as watching your grandmother take a nap. Except, it's no ordinary man we're watching -- it's that hot, hot, hot Prince William. Young, Sexy & Royal, one hour of dishy froth on cable's Women's Entertainment channel tonight, appears to have been thrown together with the belief that it doesn't matter what princes and princesses do. If they have blue blood coursing through their veins, people will watch.

The question came at Buck Showalter a few minutes after the Orioles' shaky 8-4 loss to the San Diego Padres on Wednesday, when it seemed the only bright spot at Camden Yards all afternoon was the white-hot bat of Manny Machado. "Is the way Manny's hitting even starting to amaze you guys?" a reporter asked. Showalter grimaced like a man who'd just dropped a brick on his foot. Then the Orioles manager put a finger to his lips in the classic "Shush" sign and looked around the room and said: "What else?"

With all of the back and forth of politics this summer, it has been refreshing and inspiring to read Jean Marbella 's articles about Michael Phelps leading up to the London Olympics ("Phelps looks to put stamp on perhaps the greatest Olympic career ever," July 22). Mr. Phelps might have some unfinished business and goals for himself at his last Olympics, but to his fans in Baltimore and all over the world, he does not have to prove anything else. He will always be the guy who elevated the sport of swimming and made becoming a champion swimmer the dream of every young kid. He is just as wonderful out of the pool.

The major twist on this season of The Apprentice has been dividing the teams into "haves" and "have-nots" by forcing the losing team to sleep in tents outside the mansion where the winning team is living it up. On Sunday's episode, members of undefeated Kinetic muffed their task big time, meaning they not only lost but also had to move to the outdoors camp for the first time. While the just desserts were fun to watch, it was also nice to see Arrow finally win (thanks to the efforts of project manager Aaron, who is from Columbia)

It was a sight to warm any Baltimore baseball fan's heart: In the top of the eighth inning of the All-Star Gameon Tuesday, with the eyes of the sports world fixed on Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, fully one-third of the players on the field were sporting Oriole uniforms. Unfortunately, center fielder Adam Jones, catcher Matt Wieters and reliever Jim Johnson were not able to do much to boost the prospects of the American League team, which fell to the National League by a lopsided 8-0 in the Midsummer Classic.

M&T Bank Stadium was safe. Unlike Pittsburgh Steelers fans who painted Baltimore in black and gold, Cleveland Browns fans were outnumbered by Ravens fans before yesterday's AFC North matchup. But Browns supporters had one thing their Ravens counterparts did not: hope. "It seems like the Ravens fans are pretty down," said Andy Suttell, 37, of Cleveland, who joined about a half-dozen other Browns fans in surprising friend Joe Curry with a 40th birthday celebration that included an RV trip and tickets to the game.

NEW YORK -- Orioles veterans get a kick out of rookie Brandon Fahey. They've watched his rise from scrawny unknown in spring training to utility option No. 1 with as much amazement as anyone. "He's one of those guys who shows up in spring training and all of a sudden guys are like, `Oh, he's fun to watch play,'" second baseman Brian Roberts said. "Those are the kind of guys you root for. They're always prepared. They're always ready. He knows how to play the game and when he's in there, he gives us a good spark.

Quarterback: Scott Mitchell will make his debut running the West Coast offense. Reserve Tony Banks will probably get most of the work, but he hasn't had much success avoiding turnovers in training camp. For the first time in three years, third-stringer Wally Richardson might get extensive playing time.Wide receiver: The one who drops the ball the least may end up starting opposite Jermaine Lewis in the season opener. Both Qadry Ismail and Webster Slaughter need to become more consistent, and Billy Davis is steadily improving with more time in the offense.

The kid's fun. That's the best way to put it. He is vibrant and passionate, savvy and skilled, well-versed and well-traveled, and all of it makes him fun to watch, fun to interview. Everywhere he has flair - in his hair, in his words, in the way he goes about his business on the court. He may be only 21 and best known as Florida's 6-foot-11 sophomore forward. But numbers and labels can't confine him, can't confine all that is Joakim Noah. "I am large, I contain multitudes," Walt Whitman wrote in Leaves of Grass.
