IN THE spring of 1968, the unbeaten Johns Hopkins University lacrosse team traveled to Charlottesville to play the unbeaten Virginia Cavaliers. As the team bus entered town, Coach Bob Scott recognized an elderly gentleman standing at the side of the road.It was "Georgie" -- George Pohler Jr. Georgie, then 62, had boarded a 5 a.m. Trailways bus to get to the game. For the next 24 years as Hopkins' ballboy, he would see every Hopkins lacrosse game, home or away. He became an official member of the Hopkins lacrosse family.

Georgie's of Canton deserves credit for its creativity. What other restaurant would put a crab cake on top of a Caesar salad, or add grilled peaches, asparagus and shrimp to an otherwise simply prepared piece of mahi-mahi? If those experiments aren't to your liking, that's OK. You can opt for more traditional dishes, like lasagna, ribs or chicken parmigiana. The restaurant, which opened in June, is all about making its customers happy. Owner George Platis hails from a restaurant-owning family in Brooklyn and was a partner in two Canton landmarks, Coburn's Tavern and Grill and Dockside, before striking out on his own. His philosophy, he says, is "you gotta hit a home run with the hospitality."

Sometimes a restaurant location is fine, it just doesn't have quite the right tenant. I'm thinking of the spot at 2304 Boston St. where Bruschetta and Gino Troia's were, to name two. Now it's Georgie's of Canton, and I would be less hopeful if the new owner weren't George Platis. The name may sound familiar - he's a former owner of Coburn's Tavern and then helped get Dockside in Canton off to a good start. "But it wasn't mine," Platis says. With Georgie's he has his own full-service restaurant again.

Yeah, George Clooney's Batman. And sure, he's making all sorts of hearts flutter on "ER." But remember back a few years, when no one knew who ol' George was?It wasn't that long ago, as witnessed by "Sisters" (1 a.m.-2 a.m., Lifetime), the frenetic drama about growing up in a female-dominated household that always kept things interesting on NBC's Saturday nights. Clooney played Falconer, husband to Sela Ward's Teddy (now there's an attractive couple), and tonight, Teddy keeps having nightmares that her hubby dies in a plane crash.
