In an age when no cinematic product seems safe from being targeted for a theatrical make-over, and when so few of these movies-turned-musicals end up having much substance to offer, "Once" impresses all the more. This modest-scaled work, now getting its Baltimore debut at the Hippodrome, manages to preserve the essence of the hit indie film from 2007 written and directed by John Carney, while creating some unusual and genuine magic of its own. The screen version of "Once" introduced two engaging characters identified, in Everyman fashion, as Guy, a frustrated street musician in Dublin; and Girl, a Czech immigrant who happens upon him and finds herself riveted by his songs.

Once will certainly not be enough for Once, a musical love story that simultaneously defies, reimagines and celebrates the boundaries of both genres. There's not a false moment within the film's 88-minute running time, nor many that could be done any better. Writer-director John Carney, who has worked primarily on Irish TV, gives a cinema verite look and feel to this tale of two subsistence-level Dublin, Ireland, street musicians who meet as thousands of people do every day, strike up an acquaintance like thousands of people do every day, and wrestle with the issue of taking their relationship to the next level, like thousands of people do every day. There are no big moments in Once, just a series of honest, heartfelt ones delivered with compassion, insight and good humor.

San Diego (3-3) at Kansas City (4-2)Time: 8 o'clock, TNTLine: Chiefs by 6Vs. spread: Chargers 4-2; Chiefs 3-2.Last week: Both teams had byes.Worth watching: Is San Diego RB Gary Brown ready to become a major factor, or was his 181-yard effort in a victory over Oakland before the bye week a fluke?Outlook: Kansas City hoping for improvements on defense after trading with Green Bay for LB Wayne Simmons. Return of LB Derrick Thomas is doubtful, but it sure would help the Chiefs' cause. The Chargers' upset hopes rest on the passing combination of Stan Humphries to Tony Martin, which has produced 14 catches in three weeks.

Matt Stover made a critical play in the Ravens' victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, and it had nothing to do with his feet. The 17-year veteran might have shifted the game's momentum when he tackled Chiefs return specialist Dante Hall, preventing the man who has returned 11 kicks and punts for touchdowns from adding No. 12 on the opening kickoff. "I wish I didn't have to," Stover said of making the tackle at Kansas City's 49-yard line. "I did feel my man from the inside, so I knew that I had somebody protecting the inside.

Ravens kicker Matt Stover rolled his eyes when he was asked about his field-goal accuracy record, which technically has landed him at the top of his profession.By converting all three of his attempts in Sunday's 23-10 victory over Cincinnati, Stover regained the top spot on the all-time accuracy list. Qualifiers for the list must have made at least 100 field goals in their careers.Stover, a 12th-round draft pick of the Giants in 1990, has made 132 of 164 field-goal attempts, or 80.48 percent.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - On a gloomy, overcast Midwestern afternoon, the lights were on from the start of yesterday's nationally televised game at Notre Dame Stadium. They burned brightly for underdog Navy until early in the fourth quarter, when Notre Dame's goal-line stand and subsequent 10-point eruption snuffed out the upset bid in a 34-16 Irish victory. The win extended Notre Dame's streak in the series to 38, an NCAA record against one opponent, and eased the outcry against embattled Irish coach Bob Davie.
