The problem:: A smelly utility pole languished in Patterson Park. The backstory:: John Lundquist noticed a utility pole lying in the park across the street from his Ellwood Avenue home, as well as several others on Linwood Avenue, in July.

He spotted a tag on the pole indicating that it belonged to Baltimore Gas and Electric Co., so he also called the utility.

Verne Lundquist chuckled heartily the other day at the memory of a dinner conversation he had with former Southern California quarterback Pat Haden and NBA great Billy Cunningham at a Masters buffet in 1986 that perfectly summed up his career. Lundquist, who will call Sunday's Maryland-Duke men's basketball game for CBS (Channel 13, 1 p.m.) with Billy Packer, had worked with Haden and Cunningham on the network's college football and basketball packages, respectively, only to see the two of them become lead analysts for those sports.

Gazing at the plot of earth he has often tilled for a vegetable garden, Gus Lundquist's eyes darted over to his neighbor's garden as he spoke of the food a flourishing garden can yield in a good summer's harvest.His mind drifted back a year, to a time he was standing in his own garden. "I'm standing here in my backyard garden, wondering what I'm going to do with all these vegetables," Mr. Lundquist, a Linthicum resident, recalled."I can't give them to my neighbors, because they are trying to give me theirs."

To all eyes, Kent Vander Wal is a model student. He scored 1,300 on his Scholastic Assessment Test, jammed his schedule with Advance Placement courses and ranked 14th in his high school class. Then there's the matter of his e-mail name: "Sellthekidsforfood." It wouldn't matter much, except the name was on Kent's online application to Union College in Schenectady, N.Y. The Internet has introduced an unexpected element of whimsy to the world of college admissions. In addition to ranks, scores, essays wishing for world peace and deep thoughts about the millennium, colleges now learn that applicants like to be called "Crazyclown," "Shagm" and "Ipitydafoo."

If getting through the Sunday bloat of NFL football and the relentless public relations machinery that goes with it is a chore, it's good to know that, at least for half a season, there's TNT, whose Sunday night package provides all the detail of the other NFL carriers, but with an insouciance and charm that no one else delivers.From this perspective, Sunday's Baltimore-Indianapolis game, seen locally on TNT and Channel 54, was easily the best presentation of a Ravens contest seen so far this year.

Deciding which of the networks' play-by-play callers and analysts you like best is a lot like figuring out which side you come down on on the old chicken-and-egg question.Meaning, to determine whether an announcer is a big-time player, you must first decide whether his or her presence at a certain event makes it big or does the event itself give an announcer credibility.For instance, Bob Costas has called an off-season softball game, involving major-league baseball players, for NBC in recent years.

Remember those rousing living-room debates between you and your dad over the quality of the baseball you knew and loved vs. that of his era? Your old man just knew that Joe DiMaggio could hit a Jim Palmer fastball, and you were just as certain that Frank Robinson could get around on Bob Feller.Curt Smith believes the same debate could be conducted about past and present baseball broadcasters. Smith, not surprisingly, finds the current crop lacking."By and large, younger broadcasters today lack, it seems to me, the identifiable style, the mannerisms, the personalities, the differences between them, the things that make them recognizable," said Smith.
