The Hippodrome Theatre at the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center, a key venue in the blossoming Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District, is getting a new president with a history of sparking the redevelopment of an arts community. Ron Legler, president of the Florida Theatrical Association in Orlando and a former chairman of the Downtown Arts District in that city, will succeed Jeff Daniel as Hippodrome president. He is scheduled to start in early May. "I'm very much a community person, as interested in community arts — music, dance, everything — as in Broadway tours," Legler, 46, said.

Frustrated after his comeback this season was cut short after three games, Washington Bullets guard Tim Legler practiced yesterday and is expected to be activated for tomorrow's game against the Boston Celtics.Legler has not played since Feb. 15, when he suffered a strained posterior capsule of the right knee -- the same knee in which he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament last season -- after New Jersey Nets forward Jayson Williams landed on it."I think I made a mistake by going every minute of every drill of every scrimmage last time," Legler said of coming back last month.

Loyola vs. Calvert Hall Tomorrow, 10 a.m., M&T Bank Stadium, Ch. 2, 1300 AM FIVE GAMES TO REMEMBER Five memorable games in the Calvert Hall-Loyola rivalry over the past 50 years: 1957: 7-7 tie. Calvert Hall came into Memorial Stadium with an offensive line that outweighed the Baltimore Colts' line. Jerry Gray scored the Cardinals' touchdown for coach George Young, but the undersized Dons scored late in the fourth quarter for 28-year-old coach Tracy Mehr. It was on a halfback option from Spikes Snyder to Mike Walsh.

BOWIE -- The Washington Bullets' Tim Legler was so happy to be back on the court that he didn't give much thought to how he would be received by fans after nine months away from the game. The loud ovation when he checked into Tuesday night's game against the New York Knicks caught him slightly off guard."It felt great, I felt that everybody appreciated that I helped this team last year, and they were anxious for me to come back," Legler said yesterday after the team's practice at Bowie State.

LANDOVER -- He's the second-best three-point shooter in the league and, during All-Star Weekend, he was the winner of the three-point shootout. So when Washington Bullets guard Tim Legler got the ball in the final seconds of a tie game against the Philadelphia 76ers last night, the logical thinking was he would take a long jumper.But Legler had another option in mind, and his drive and high-arcing layup with four seconds left gave the Bullets a much-needed 107-105 victory over the Sixers before a sellout crowd of 18,756 at USAir Arena.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- A week ago, he was shooting his way into the three-point shootout finals at All-Star Weekend at Gund Arena, a big step toward a return from reconstructive knee surgery the previous year.Last night, Washington Bullets guard Tim Legler sat in front of his locker, trying to describe the frustration of hurting the knee again."I don't understand it," Legler said. "I worked so hard at this, and I just want to play so badly. Frustration doesn't even describe it."Legler's injury is being initially described as a strained posterior capsule of the right knee (no ligament damage)

Twenty-three is more than just a number to Tim Legler. It's a way of life. At his gym, Legler always uses locker No. 23. It's also part of every PIN number or password he needs to remember. It's even included in his e-mail address. And yes, when Legler goes to Las Vegas, 23 plays a prominent role in his wagering. "It sounds crazy, but that number has hit many times for me," the former NBA journeyman told Bloomberg News. "I load up on 23. It's become the most critical number in my life."

WASHINGTON -- When Bernie Bickerstaff put the Washington Bullets in the NBA playoffs two seasons ago, he was credited with leading the team to its only postseason berth since 1988. When the now Washington Wizards failed to respond this season, Bickerstaff was the person to shoulder the blame.After what amounted to nearly two full seasons as coach, Bickerstaff was fired yesterday. He will be replaced on an interim basis by assistant coach Jim Brovelli, but general manager Wes Unseld said there's a chance the team could have a full-time coach in place by the end of the season.

CHICAGO -- They hadn't won a game on the road in more than a month, having dropped seven straight going into last night. The Washington Bullets know that if they want to make the playoffs, they have to correct their road woes somewhere down the road. But playing the Chicago Bulls at the United Center was definitely not the place.Already on pace to win 70 games, the Bulls also own the second-best home record in the league. And that record wasn't harmed last night in Chicago's 111-98 win over the Bullets before a sellout crowd of 23,494.
