For years, the Dixie Chicks would perform anywhere to get noticed and break into the big time: The Texas trio sang on Dallas street corners, crooned at barbecues, even snuck into the lobby of "The David Letterman Show" (and were thrown out).So when Martie Seidel, 28, Emily Erwin, 25, and Natalie Maines, 23, see audience members singing along to songs from their latest album, "Wide Open Spaces," they say they can't believe it."We're freaking out. We can't figure out why it's selling so well," Martie says.

An hour and a half before Sunday's Ravens game, Jimmy Scaletta took his usual seat near M&T Bank Stadium - in the middle of the eastbound lane of the Hamburg Street bridge. On game days, it becomes a pedestrian bridge, and Scaletta sits with his cup and cardboard sign facing the incoming fans, hoping for handouts. He's been doing this for years, before and after Ravens games. He doesn't walk around and ask for money. He sits quietly with the handmade sign. Sunday the sign read, "Homeless People Help Happy Holiday.

The kids are finally in bed. Sound asleep. Time to slip that Game Boy or that Nintendo controller out of those weary little hands. Time to play.For years, adults hooked on video games have had to resort to subterfuge, sneaking behind their children's backs to snatch a few hours of stolen pleasure on a borrowed Game Boy or Nintendo or Atari Lynx. Those who don't have children have had to buy their own video games, skulking around the aisles at Toys "R" Us among the bicycles and the Barbie Dolls.

New Town's Tiana Davis made two high-arcing free throws with 9.9 seconds left and the visiting Titans watched a desperation 3-point attempt go wide at the buzzer as they held on for a 48-45 victory over host Western Tech's girls basketball team Friday night. The win advanced the Titans (16-5, 11-0) to the Baltimore County title game for the second straight year. "We had to get that win and we had to make those foul shots," said Davis, whose only three points came from the foul line in the final 1:28.

At Apple Computer's first company store, in Tyson's Corner, Va., everything seems just as the creators of the digital universe intended. Black-clad salesman talk soothingly about titanium-coated Power-books, while children sit on futuristic ball-shaped chairs and learn mathematics from translucent iMacs. But spend a few minutes talking to parents in line outside the store right after it opens - there is a lengthy queue just to shop - and it becomes clear that the big question isn't whether to go Mac or Windows.

One of Cyberspud's favorite toys as a kid was his Mattel Electronics Football, the granddaddy of all electronic handheld games. In 1977, this baby was the bomb. Sure, it didn't have the snazzy animation of a (Nintendo) Game Boy - players were nothing more than tiny LED smears. You couldn't pass. And a doorbell had zippier sound effects. So what does this have to do with the Super Bowl or the Internet? Simple. Miller Brewing Co. has reincarnated the game for one of its online Super Bowls ads. Find the game at SuperBowl.

Video games have been blamed for making kids fat, introducing them to sex and violence, luring them away from family conversations and shortening their attention spans. Now a small number of game makers, backed in some cases by philanthropists, educators and scientists, are creating games meant to get young players to exercise, focus, monitor their health and even relax. A computer game called Play Attention is used in school districts around the country, including one in Western Maryland, to get kids with attention-deficit disorder to focus.

Boy George says one of his neighbors back in London hates him."He's threatened litigation more times than I can remember -- over noise, talking, people leaving late at night, the pump in the garden," the former George O'Dowd, 31, says by phone from his New York hotel room, just after he's had his eyebrows plucked and before he'll put his lipstick on.Possibly the neighbor abhors the idea of Boy George -- a self-proclaimed "good drag queen," an openly gay...

COLLEGE PARK -- Despite 31 points by Towson Catholic guard Malcolm Delaney, the U.S. All-Stars lost to the Capital All-Stars, 149-145, last night at Comcast Center in the highest-scoring Capital Classic ever. Delaney, who is headed to Virginia Tech next fall, was one of the bright spots in an all-star game again after dominating the Charm City Challenge earlier this week. Delaney shot 8-for-17 from the field, hitting four of his seven three-point attempts. Much of his disappointment over losing was overshadowed by his dazzling performance.

Liberty senior striker Taylor VanBrackle, the program's all-time leading scorer, had waited long enough as the No. 6 Lions' Class 2A state semifinal game against Queen Anne's stayed scoreless into the second overtime. So finally VanBrackle neatly put a ball away with eight minutes left in the extra time to lift the Lions to a 1-0 win that sends them to new territory, their first state final appearance. Liberty, which was making its third state semifinal appearance in three years, improves to 14-0-3 and will next meet Hammond - a 2-0 winner over Hereford in last night's other semifinal at South River - next week at UMBC.

There was no question how badly Park wanted yesterday's game with visiting John Carroll. The Bruins simply kept coming at their opponent. They played with an aggressiveness that let them stay in control for long stretches. That intensity also helped Park overcome losing a two-goal lead in the final minute of regulation and pull out a 6-5 victory in double overtime over No. 13 John Carroll in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference game. Jake Cornblath scored the game-winning goal with 1:52 left in the second overtime.

With three of the four top seeds eliminated in the Maryland Scholastic Association Independents Schools Basketball Tournament, you might think that Spalding coach Lee Dove would be flattered with his Cavaliers' No. 8 seeding.He's not, but Dove couldn't find anything else to complain about yesterday after watching his team defeat No. 4 seed St. Paul's, 65-59, at Gilman School."Just getting to the championship is a major accomplishment, especially for a No. 8 seed," said Dove, with tongue in cheek.

An early note of warning: Don't come to the Daredevil game for the Game Boy Advance expecting the same kind of tricks and treats you see in the movie. They aren't there. Don't come looking for the same kind of gaming adventures you'd find on your Xbox or PlayStation 2 - those aren't there either. What this is, however, is a fairly decent old-school, platform-style superhero brawler. This used to be standard game fare for the old NES, Super NES and Genesis. If you expect more than that, you're definitely going to be disappointed.

The girls will tip off at 5:30 p.m. and the boys at 7. "We thought it would be a nice charity event and also a nice way for some of the seniors to showcase their talents, individually and collectively," said Century boys coach George Wunder, who teamed with Winters Mill boys coach Dave Herman to help get the event off the ground.
