"Project Runway" Season 11 began last night, and first of all, I'd like to say the return of Heidi Klum is such a relief after an entire season of watching Angela Lindvall, who has all the charisma of hand sanitizer. I've grown to enjoy Joanna Coles, but she is no Tim Gunn. So, welcome back to the normal "Project Runway. "   The season begins with Heidi and Tim announcing that this season will be "Project Runway: Teams. " I guess I spoke too soon when I said welcome back to normal "Project Runway," guess we needed a gimmick.

Colonial Players is not only launching its new season with its current production of "Rocket Man" but has also flipped the switch on impressive new staging technology that gives this show a distinctive touch of flash. The show by Steven Dietz relates the adventures of a protagonist in his mid-40s who transcends oppressive boundaries for a second chance at a better life. But the audience, too, blasts off into a season that celebrates Colonial's improved facilities, including a new lighting grid and instruments producing spectacular new effects.

As the Baltimore Theatre Project turns 39, it is changing course and shifting its focus. In the future, fewer experimental plays will appear at the venue. Instead, audiences can expect to find more chamber operas, musicals, dance, and multimedia theater pieces with a strong visual component. But the fans of the innovative and progressive have no cause for concern — "Annie Get Your Gun" appears nowhere on the 2010-2011 subscription season. The Theatre Project is as dedicated as ever to staging new, cutting-edge works.

Happy "Top Chef" Eve everyone! I know that most of you are hungover from alcohol, chocolate, or both (I'm not judging!) but please cleanse your palate because tomorrow marks the premiere of "Top Chef: Texas" at 10 p.m. on Bravo. And I'll be handling recaps this season for TV Lust. I consider myself to be a connoisseur of "Top Chef. " As a faithful viewer since Season 1, I have seen the show serve up some amazing challenges and characters, and some that were less palatable.

"Madden NFL 13" EA Sports Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 Score: 3 stars out of 4 The "Madden" series hasn't quite lived up to expectations since eliminating competing NFL franchises in 2005. Still, it is taken for granted how much EA Sports maximizes its exclusive license with the NFL to produce video games that allow fans to come as close as most ever will to an NFL field. The knock on “Madden” is that it's the same year-in and year-out. “Madden NFL 13” absolutely disproves that notion, though “different” doesn't automatically mean “better.” Like it's little brother, “NCAA Football,” this year's edition of “Madden” has fine-tuned its passing game to mirror the throw-happy offenses in the real NFL. Receivers run their routes in a less robotic fashion than previous editions, and as a quarterback, the player has a real opportunity to put the ball where they want.

The Ravens' regular-season finale Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals is like the final preseason game - it's just one more test before the new season begins. So, you can yawn through that one like you do during actual preseason games, and then once it is over, the real fun begins. Right now, the Ravens are the No. 4 seed in the AFC and could move up to No. 3, depending on the outcome of a few other games Sunday. But they don't need anything to change. With the current seeds, the Ravens are in good position.

As we do indeed rejoice in our good sports fortune of having the Orioles playing meaningful games at the same time that the Ravens open their new season ( "The Tell-Tale Heart," Sept. 4) and face the decision of which one to watch when their telecasts compete, I wonder why in this era of "smart" TVs, someone can't reinvent PIP (picture-in-picture) or split-screen technology. It wasn't that long ago during the VCR era that two broadcasts could be viewed simultaneously on the same screen and you could flip back and forth between them for sound.

The past 10 months have been a long wait for Johns Hopkins , which lost 29-24 to Wesley in the first round of the NCAA Division III playoffs on Nov. 23. Brandon Cherry said every member of the Blue Jays has been chomping at the bit for the start of the upcoming 2014 season, which kicks off on Saturday at noon with a home game against Randolph Macon at Homewood Field. “Everybody's just excited to get back on the field,” the junior running back said. “It's been a while since our last loss to Wesley, and we're putting that behind us. We're coming in with the fresh mind that it's a new season and we're ready to get back in it.” The new season means a featured tailback role for the Parkville resident and Boys' Latin graduate.

The Season 6 "RHONJ" premiere was filled with new housewives, the return of an original housewife and a whole lot of emotions; this is your warning that you might need some tissues. Teresa Giudice:  You might actually have heard of the name Giudice outside of the Bravo bubble because Teresa and her husband Joe are indicted on federal fraud charges and could face a long time in prison: real housewives have real drama. The episode started with her sister-in-law Melissa calling Teresa to check to see if some rumors are true, Teresa says they aren't true, and after she hangs up, her daughter Gia asks what she was talking about on the phone.

Mike Chanenchuk led Maryland in points with four and scored the game-winning goal with two seconds left in regulation to propel the seventh-seeded Terps to an 8-7 decision over Cornell in the first round of the NCAA tournament Saturday. But the senior attackman took great pains to single out the play of his freshman linemates in Matt Rambo and Connor Cannizzaro. “Matt and Connor, I think they grew up for us today, and they were being leaders out there today, which was really awesome to see,” Chanenchuk said Saturday.

Don's on the mend. Sort of. It was an admittedly slow yet steady start to the new season. That's how it should be with recovery. There was no jumping into massive transformations or profound moments of clarity. It was more of a catch-up to see how the dust has settled - or kicked up - in the past two months (in "Mad Men" time, of course). Are Don and Megan still together? Have SC&P rehired Don? Are Peggy and Joan this close to starting their firm to prove those chauvinists wrong?

If you're among the legion of rejuvenated Orioles fans who will show up for Opening Day expecting big things after the team's spring training spending spree, the rest of the baseball world thinks you're fooling yourself. The national media consensus is that the Orioles will finish fourth in the tough American League East this year. The people who crunch the numbers and set the betting lines in Las Vegas think that they are barely a .500 team. So, what else is new? The Orioles shocked the world by reaching the playoffs in 2012 and stayed in contention until the final weeks of the 2013 season, but if they thought all that - and a $67 million free-agent infusion - would get them into the top half of anybody's preseason power rankings, well, they were sorely mistaken.

How does the injury to point guard Seth Allen impact the rest of Mark Turgeon's rotation? Don Markus: If Turgeon goes ahead with his plan to use Dez Wells at point guard - a somewhat risky proposition, given the junior's propensity for turnovers (108) last season - it likely means that one of the team's sophomore big men will start. With Wells at the point, junior Nick Faust (City) and sophomore Jake Layman on the wings and transfer Evan Smotrycz at what is now called the stretch-4 (a power forward who can shoot outside)

This is the kind of thing that all too often makes it so aggravating to watch the Baltimore Ravens when CBS is doing the telecast. It was late in the third quarter Sunday and a ferocious pass rush by the Ravens resulted in a sack of Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden. As the linemen were unpiling with 29 seconds left in the quarter, a graphic flashed on the bottom of the screen that read, “Ravens: 4 sacks for 28 yards.” Two seconds later, play-by-play announcer Marv Albert told viewers, “A total of three sacks now for the Ravens.” Come on, Marv.
