The Final Four has become too big of an event to ever become old hat, but let's just say that the CBS crew that will telecast this year's event has developed a comfort level with the games and the surroundings.That doesn't mean that coordinating producer Bob Dekas, who will head up the production team that telecasts this year's event Saturday and Monday from Indianapolis, doesn't get surprised.Dekas was in Birmingham last weekend when Arizona unceremoniously bounced Kansas, the heavyweight favorite, from the proceedings at least three rounds earlier than most projected.

MONTREAL -- The newest member of what might be baseball's most elite club thought the ball that had earned him membership was lost forever."I can't believe I just tossed it away," Mickey Morandini said on the Philadelphia Phillies' flight from Pittsburgh on Sunday night, just a few hours after he had become only the ninth player in big-league history to pull off an unassisted triple play."

Ever since NBC wrested away telecast rights to the U.S. Open golf tournament from ABC with a reported three-year, $40 million contract, linksters have wondered whether the Peacock network can adequately cover the nation's championship event, held this year at Shinnecock Hills on Long Island.An article in the June issue of Golf Digest, in fact, cast skepticism not only on NBC's production abilities and camera work, but also on its announcers -- Bob Trumpy, Dan Hicks and Jim Lampley -- not to mention raising questions about NBC's new golf host, Dick Enberg.

All too often in television, that which is of high quality rarely receives proper public acceptance and vice versa.Need proof? In 1984, John Ritter won the Best Actor in a Comedy Emmy Award for his Olivier-like pratfalls in "Three's Company," while 17 years earlier, "The Monkees" actually was selected the best comedy series of that year.But the public got it right this football season, giving NBC higher NFL ratings for the year than it gave Fox. The Peacock network was superior, week in and week out, to the newcomers.

Jim Lampley says the knockout was among the most brutal he has witnessed. "When Oleg Maskaev landed that right hand to the left side of Hasim Rahman's face, Rahman sailed through the ropes and basically landed in my lap - first his head, then his upper body, then his legs," says Lampley, an HBO commentator. "And then Rock landed headfirst on the concrete floor." WBC heavyweight title fight Hasim Rahman (41-5-2, 33 KOs) vs. Oleg Maskaev (32-5, 25 KOs), Saturday, approx. 11 p.m., Las Vegas

Last week, NBC announced its coverage plans for the Winter Olympics, now less than a month away in Turin, Italy. On the list of assignments for different sports, it's interesting to note (as Vin Scully would say - and as Jon Miller would say when imitating Vin Scully) the former athletes from other sports with very specific Olympic jobs. Some are long on the road to sportscasting careers that don't depend anymore on the expertise of their competitive careers, but let's take a look: Tim Daggett (gymnastics)

No one at NBC Sports can ever say it puts viewer interests ahead of its own business interests. On "NFL Live," both Saturday and Sunday, the network failed to report the biggest NFL story in years -- Fox's outbidding CBS for the league's NFC TV package.For the record, NBC Sports spokesman Ed Markey said the decision not to report the Commentarydeal had everything to do with the fact the network was still in negotiations with the league for the AFC package.This reasoning is mind-boggling. CBS went with the story on its evening newscast Friday when Dan Rather reported the Fox bid. On Saturday, Greg Gumbel also reported the story.
