All you need to sense the accuracy of a revealing documentary about the movie business on basic cable this weekend is to remember how often you've seen Arnold Schwarzenegger this summer.The man has been everywhere! Plugging his latest hit, "Terminator 2," he's been doing the television talk shows and making the covers of magazines both slick and pulpy. And just this week he also popped up in the news pages for the birth of his second child (a daughter, to celebrity wife Maria Shriver).Did the couple time the blessed event to coincide with the "Terminator" publicity push?

COLLEGE PARK - There was no formal introduction, no hoopla as the leading scorer in Maryland men's basketball history took a seat behind the bench for the first time in his new role. Juan Dixon, dressed in a grey suit and trying hard to fade into a maze of coach Mark Turgeon's bench staff, barely was noticed during an 89-62 victory over Morgan State on Friday. Dixon, hired as Turgeon's special assistant Wednesday, is officially back with at program he led to its lone national championship in 2002, and its first Final Four the previous year.

On the field: Rafael Palmeiro had his 10-game hitting streak broken. He went 0-for-3 with a walk and a sacrifice fly.In the dugout: Jarvis Brown started in center field for the third straight game yesterday. That's because two of the Orioles' other outfielders, Mark Smith and Kevin Bass, are still banged up. Smith (cut finger) still has trouble throwing, but pinch hit in the eighth innning. He walked, scored a run and played left field. Bass (strained quadriceps muscle) still has trouble running.

At last week's couture shows in Paris, all the hoopla over rising hemlines almost obscured another fashion turnabout. Accessories were being treated like extra poundage -- trimmed down or eliminated.At Chanel, where the theory has always been "more is better" when it comes to gewgaws, there was not a strand of pearls, never mind the usual ropes of them, decorating a single model. The night before the show, the Chanel designer, Karl Lagerfeld, was supervising the last-minute looks. The usual trays brimming with accessories were spread out before him. But instead of adding, he was subtracting.

How about another hit? Losing Plaxico Burress is one thing. But the Giants can't afford to have linebacker and team leader Antonio Pierce embroiled in legal issues of the wide receiver's accidental shooting. Pierce's attorney says he's innocent of a cover-up, but questions remain. Not what the Giants need in the stretch run. Bucs up creek? If Monte Kiffin decides to join his son, Lane, at the University of Tennessee - as expected - it will be a big hit for the Buccaneers. Kiffin's defense kept the Bucs above water in the down years (when Jon Gruden's offense stunk)

MIAMI - Dontrelle Willis of the Florida Marlins doesn't need to pitch against Randy Johnson to get excited about a game. "I'm animated enough as it is," said Willis yesterday, two days before his meeting with Johnson in tomorrow night's series finale against the Arizona Diamondbacks. "I'm a high-energy guy in A-ball. For something like this, I might throw it over the net if I don't check my feelings." Willis learned that in his last start. Facing fellow Alameda, Calif., native Jimmy Rollins and the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday, Willis walked two of the game's first three batters.

In the 60 years since electronics made first the whole nation and now the whole world an instant witness to presidential inaugurals, that event has taken on a symbolic significance that can affect national and political life. Bill Clinton's future does not depend on his personalized hoopla and rhetoric today, but that hoopla and rhetoric will affect his bond with the whole nation and the whole world.An inaugural address can serve as pep talk and morale builder.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh is back into the routine at the Castle. He is turning down speaking engagements and book deals and watching video of potential draft picks. The euphoria of being a winning Super Bowl head coach is finally starting to die down. "I'm getting into the routines again," said Harbaugh, about to enter his sixth season in Baltimore. "I'm watching every guy in the draft. I've got to do that, I've got to know who we're drafting and if I can help. "I get a report every night from our coordinators on what they did and it gives me a chance to weigh in as well.

Phil McConkey wasn't surprised to hear that Navy's mascot had been goatnapped last week, for the umpteenth time, prior to Saturday's Army-Navy football game. That the animal was left tethered to a post, outside of the Pentagon, didn't surprise him either. "The goat is a smelly old thing that defecates all the time, and Army probably couldn't deal with it (after the heist)," said McConkey, a star receiver for Navy in the 1970s. "They also stole our goat when I played there, 34 years ago, and I said the same thing then: "Good riddance, let Army have it. " After 112 years of hijinks and hoopla, Army and Navy can still find ways to torment each other in advance of their storied rivalry.

It smelled like teen spirit in the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center Tuesday night, where a pep rally was held to commemorate the opening night of High School Musical's two-week Baltimore run. There was a squad from the Baltimore Marching Ravens, performing such fare as "Smoke on the Water" and "Louie, Louie." There was a baton-twirler -- Diane Lynn from 101.9 Lite FM. Lynn is a former high school majorette, though she admitted she was hesitant to send her baton skyward. "I'm afraid I'll hit someone on the head," she said.

Saturday's Maryland-Florida State basketball game was more than an athletic contest. It was also a showcase for the unfettered, uncompromising allegiance known only to college students in the stands - and amplified by cheerleading and zany halftime shows. The Terps rewarded their fans' loyalty with an 82-72 victory.

Barracks Row just might be Washington's best-kept secret. It's the manicured tree-lined streets, the historic storefronts brimming with boutiques and cafes, and the sense of community that make this neighborhood minutes away from the Capitol building so attractive. Residents are quick to comment that the neighborhood trudged through some dark days and is now experiencing a renaissance of spectacular proportions - 11 new businesses have opened on this several-block corridor in the past year, and four more are slated to open in the coming months.

I had the opportunity to sit down with Cal Ripken Jr. on Saturday during his 5K run at Ripken Stadium. He found a tiny office inside the ballpark that, while hardly comfortable, provided a rare chance for him to relax. The man looks exhausted. He has dark circles under his eyes that would cut the glare from the sun while trying to catch a pop-up. But he keeps pushing forward. The demands on his time are unreal, but he's used to it. "I guess you could look at it in the context of working out and lifting and running doesn't compare from a physical standpoint, but it certainly feels like it," he said.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- It seems every racetrack is either thriving because it has slots or withering while begging for them. Churchill Downs, the home of Saturday's Kentucky Derby, would seem to be an exception. But at Churchill, past and present officials say that looks - augmented by a recent $125 million overhaul and flattered by a Forbes magazine article that rates the Derby as No. 8 among the sports and event brands in the world - can be deceiving.
