On the NBC comedy Joey, star Matt LeBlanc plays a struggling actor who lives in constant fear of unemployment. Last week, for instance, Joey got his hands on an advance script for his latest project, a Baywatch-type series set in a ski resort, and became frantic that the writers were about to ax his character. Joey might not be the only one whose job is on the line. A spinoff of Friends, one of the biggest comedy hits ever, Joey is on a downhill slide. The show has been shedding viewers fairly consistently since its Sept.

Baltimore native Joey Odoms, who returned this summer from duty in Afghanistan as a member of the Maryland Army National Guard, will be the next national anthem singer for the Ravens. He was selected from among eight finalists who sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" before a jury last week at M&T Bank Stadium. "I'm pretty excited," said Odoms, 25, a songwriter and former 911 operator who grew up in Reservoir Hill and did some acting on HBO's "The Wire. " Meg Sippey, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's artistic planning manager, was among the judges.

I CONSIDERED Big Little Joey Peske to be a gift from God. It seemed like he fell from the sky one autumn night in 1989 -- a comic comet who, for the next several years, made me and countless other Baltimoreans laugh. This was back when I moonlighted as host of a weeknight talk show on WBAL Radio. The first time Peske called the show and we spoke on the air, he played me like a cheap ukulele. "Danny," he said, in a voice that crossed Tom Waits with George Burns, "you made a big mistake on the answer to tonight's Baltimore trivia quiz."

SUMMIT, N.J. -- The golfing spotlight shifted a little yesterday from one Chuasiriporn sibling to another. It moved from Jenny, who is an old hand at U.S. Open appearances, to her older (by 11 months) brother Joey, who is trying to find his place in one.For Joey, the wait will have to continue for at least one more year. His performance yesterday, with Jenny on his bag in the U.S. Open Metropolitan section qualifier at Canoe Brook Country Club, was good but not quite good enough. His 36-hole, 2-over 146 left him three shots out of a chance to claim one of seven spots to be taken from the section.

Joey, the Friends' spin-off starring Matt LeBlanc, got off to a fast start for NBC Thursday night with an audience of 17.1 million viewers. But Donald Trump's The Apprentice proved highly vulnerable to counterprogramming, and that could mean big trouble for NBC on its lucrative franchise evening as the season unfolds. Based on preliminary "fast" national Nielsen ratings, it appears that ABC's opening broadcast of the National Football League season topped The Apprentice when the two went head-to-head from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday.

Joey Case tried to prepare as if it were just another college lacrosse game, but there were reminders everywhere that suggested differently. Hanging in his locker was a never-worn Loyola home jersey, adorned with the No. 9, not his usual No. 8. Then there was the pre-game phone call to his mother, a gesture that Effie Case expected out of her two sons, but this one was different. Joey, usually a substitute attackman or midfielder, learned earlier that morning that he was going to start against Brown.

Two days before Christmas, the Hammond wrestling team was putting the finishing touches on a down-to-the-wire, dual-meet win over River Hill. And in defeating the five-time county champion Hawks before a raucous home crowd, the Bears had handed their perennial Howard County rival its first league loss in years. Meanwhile, halfway around the world in Iraq, adrenaline was running high for a former Hammond wrestler for an entirely different reason: Days before the Bears' meet with the Hawks in Columbia, former Hammond wrestler Joey Killo was staring at a blown-up desert stronghold, the aftermath of a bombing that destroyed his sleeping quarters.

Close your eyes and imagine the Federal Hill bar scene late on a Saturday night. If hazy images of loud, crowded bars filled with pushy, drunken patrons fill your head, then you have likely experienced the madness first-hand. At around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, Joey B's Bar and Grille was quiet, especially in comparison to its rowdier neighbors such as Mad River and Nobles. Besides our trio, there were a handful of other patrons who seemed to stop by only for a quick beer or shot before heading on their way. It would have been easy for the two bartenders behind Joey B's double-sided bar to stare at their phones or find other nonproductive ways to pass the time.

There's something welcoming about Joey B's, the new Federal Hill restaurant and bar from Joseph Bivona, who also owns The Grille at Peerce's in Phoenix. At this low-key new city outpost, Bivona has put his management skills to good use. Joey B's is casual and fun with a menu that has a few misses, but adds some new twists to typical Federal Hill bar cuisine. Scene & Decor Maybe it's the fresh red and black paint job, or it's the cute sports art on the walls, or maybe it's just because we visited Joey B's during a downpour: Whatever the reason, we found the place inviting, cozy and warm.

The first time Archbishop Spalding played Calvert Hall this season, the Cardinals' bats caught fire en route to a 10-run victory. On Wednesday, in the rematch between the two teams, Spalding left-handed pitcher Joey Benitez was determined to make sure the outcome was different. Benitez, a senior who will attend Old Dominion, led the Cavaliers to a 3-2 upset of the No. 1 Cardinals. Despite rolling his right ankle in the top of the fourth inning on an errant pitch, Benitez managed to throw five scoreless innings, striking out four and allowing two hits.

The search for St. Mary's goalkeeper of the future has centered on freshman Joey Casey. The Ellicott City native and Mount St. Joseph native made 15 saves in the Seahawks' 13-12 upset of No. 11 Roanoke Sunday. In doing so, Casey validated coach Chris Hasbrouck's decision to go with him rather than seniors Scott Marsh and Ben Wheeler and junior Zack Blewett. “Great to have,” Hasbrouck said of Casey, who is scheduled to make his second career start against No. 8 Dickinson Saturday.

With the departure of last year's entire starting attack, Hood senior Joey O'Hara has a prime opportunity to insert himself as a starter. And he's trying to do it on one leg. O'Hara tore the anterior cruciate ligament in one knee last summer, and it's the same ligament that he strained as a sophomore. He returned last March and finished the season tied for third on the team in goals with 11. Coach Jeremy Mattoon said he would love to slow O'Hara's return and ease him back onto the field, but this is the last year of O'Hara's eligibility.
