WHEN George Michael informed last night's crowd at the Capital Centre that it was the final night of his American tour, expectations immediately rose.The question was, could he deliver enough enthusiasm and excitement even as the "Cover to Cover" tour was winding down with each minute?But much as he did in his American debut as a solo performer three years ago at the Cap Centre, Michael delivered a most memorable performance.It's all too easy, between all of the sexual posturing and cartoon image-making that he has created and endured, to lose sight of the most obvious elements of Michael's made-for-MTV persona.

Here's 30 songs released in 1984 that defined the year. 1. "I Just Called To Say I Love You," Stevie Wonder Slightly cheesy?

WASHINGTON - -George Michael, 70, a high-rated and hyper-animated Washington sportscaster whose extensive use of game highlights from across the country on his nationally syndicated show has now become the norm in the industry, died Thursday at Sibley Memorial Hospital. He had chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Mr. Michael was a popular rock 'n' roll disc jockey in Philadelphia and New York before making a successful transition to television, where his boisterous style and unremitting hustle made him one of the dominant personalities in Washington for years.

George MichaelOlder (DreamWorks 50000)George Michael's fight to free himself from his contract with Sony must have been more about art than commerce. Because judging from the sound of "Older," the singer's first full album in six years, Michael is hardly the hit machine he used to be. That's not to say his new material is badly written; if anything, the likes of "Fastlove" or the jazzy "Move On" show a sophistication sorely lacking in Michael's early work....

Q: Enclosed is a picture of a walnut, cane-seat chair. It was my great-grandmother's parlor chair when she got married in 1857.How much it is worth?A: I think she bought this for her 25th anniversary (1882). It might sell for $175 to $200 in good condition.Q: I've found a mark -- crossed vines looping around the letters "R" and "S" and at the top, a star, with "Prussia" underneath -- on the bottom of a hand-painted porcelain teapot. It is pale green with white-and-red floral decoration and gold trim.

ALWAYS Pebbles (MCA 10025)If producers L.A. and Babyface are the Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis of West Coast R&B, then Pebbles is their Janet Jackson. Good as the analogy is, though, it isn't enough to make "Always" the California equivalent of Jackson's "Rhythm Nation." Granted, this album does boast a similar assortment of issue-oriented dance songs ("Say a Prayer for Me") and gooey love ballads ("Why Do I Believe"). But instead of the muscular insistence of Jackson's music, Pebbles prefers a softer sell, one which takes its strength from subtle soulfulness.

Reading Time: Two Minutes.You have to wonder just what's going on in the Adams Division of the NHL. During the past three weeks, clubs from the division that will have three of its teams rack up at least 100 points this season have taken on the wildly inconsistent Washington Capitals and ended up being hammered by lopsided scores of 5-2, 3-1, 5-1 and last night's 4-1 surrender by Buffalo.The Caps, who are only 11-18-2 in the Patrick Division, have feasted on foes from the Adams, going 12-5-2, including 8-0-1 at home.
