Only weeks into peak season, new Six Flags Chief Executive Officer Mark Shapiro has revealed just how much fun he's not having this summer at the company's 30 theme parks. "This product isn't close to where we want to be," Shapiro said during an unusually candid assessment of Six Flags Inc., which may sell six parks. The company owns Six Flags America in Largo. The company is $2.1 billion in debt. Its stock price plummeted 25 percent immediately after Shapiro's harsh review late last month during a call with investors.

On July 28, the Orioles lost to the Oakland Athletics to drop their record to 52-49. As pleasant a surprise as the club had been to that point, the season suddenly carried all the hallmarks of an Oriole collapse, the kind fans had come to expect in 14 straight years of losing. The Orioles had given up far more runs than they had scored. The defense was suspect. Injuries had frayed an already patched-together roster. But executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette and manager Buck Showalter did not simply watch the train derail.

Call him a parent's dream. A Gilman School and Princeton University graduate. An overachieving college football player. Smart, well-mannered, good-looking. Straight out of college, he worked in real estate construction in Southern California and retail in New York. There's little doubt Mark Shapiro could have succeeded in corporate America. Ron Shapiro, the well-connected, well-respected sports agent and Baltimore attorney, kept repeating that message to his oldest son. Try to stay away from baseball's grip, he would tell him. And, for goodness sake, don't follow your old man's footsteps into the world of player representation.

On his 36th day on the job, new Six Flags chief executive Mark Shapiro came to Largo to tour another piece of his empire and share his vision for turning around the troubled theme parks. The former ESPN executive said he's planning daily parades, frequent fireworks and acrobatic shows to draw families to a Main Street-type environment, expanding on its current base of predominantly teenage patrons. Creating a family-friendly atmosphere, he said, would be key to boosting attendance and revenue.

CLEVELAND - Mark Shapiro won't forget his visit to this city in November 1991. It was cold and wet, and the cab driver took him by the site where Jacobs Field was to be built. "He told me that someone had just gotten car-jacked there," Shapiro said. "I was wondering what I was doing there." His interview with the Indians was at Municipal Stadium, a vast facility built in 1932. In 1991, when the Indians lost 105 games, the official average attendance was 12,985. But there were many times when only several hundred showed up. No, Cleveland wasn't the top choice for Shapiro.

No one can accuse the Cleveland Indians of lacking a long-term management plan. The club announced yesterday that - effective Nov. 1 - executive vice president and general manager John Hart will move into an advisory role and that Baltimore native Mark Shapiro, 34, will take over the day-to-day operation of the franchise. Shapiro, the son of prominent Baltimore lawyer and player representative Ron Shapiro, has worked his way up through the Indians' organization since joining the team as an assistant in baseball operations in 1992.

I've got a confession to make. I've waited all these years to see Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal give peace a chance, and I was watching The Bachelor in Paris when they embraced at midcourt before Monday night's nationally televised game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat. From what I understand, Shaq took the advice of NBA Hall of Famer Bill Russell and extended the olive branch to Kobe during the pre-game stretch. They buried the hatchet on the Martin Luther King holiday, which was a nice touch.
