CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- When Bernard King shoots 2-for-8 from the field and scores only eight points, there's a good chance it means that his team has lost and the Washington Bullets forward will be in a bad mood.But yesterday, King's less-than-stellar performance was meaningless. It was not because King and his Eastern Conference teammates beat the West, 116-114, in the National Basketball Association All-Star game. It was because there was another All-Star Game for King.King received a standing ovation from the crowd at the Charlotte Coliseum upon his introduction in the East' starting lineup.

In their most important game of the season, the Eagles lost by five. And by 5. That's the jersey number of Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb, who wore that same number for 11 years in Philadelphia before the Eagles traded him in April. Along the way in their 17-12 loss to the Redskins, the Eagles lost quarterback Michael Vick, who suffered an undisclosed rib injury on a dazzling run up the middle at the end of the first quarter when he was sandwiched just shy of the goal line.

So let me tell you about my experiences at Camden Yards before I respond to the recent commentary suggesting Orioles fans should not cheer for Derek Jeter in his last appearance at the ballpark ( "Good riddance, Jeter," Sept. 11). I went to a game there in the early 1990s when a friend of mine invited me and one-handed pitcher Jim Abbott and outfielder Danny Tartabull were on the Yankees. My friend who is a Yankee fan invited two Orioles fans unbeknownst to me. Jim Abbott was throwing a shutout and the Yankees were up 6-0 by the third inning.

Two years after anticipation of her appointment caused a near-mutiny among its players, Marin Alsop made her official Charm City debut as music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra last night, receiving a standing ovation as the took the stage. The ovation was repeated, even more emphatically, at the conclusion of the concert. The audience seemed reluctant to leave.

The Inquiring Reporter:Why don't we just cut to the chase and begin Cal Ripken's standing ovation on Labor Day?Also, are we correct in assuming Cal never missed a day of school, never missed church and Sunday school, a dentist's appointment or a homework assignment?Also, what's your best guess as to how many times Cal will see the movie "Silence of the Lambs" when he's already seen it 20 times and the thing was released in 1991? A thousand?* Tell me, is that excruciatingly tense battle for the wild-card spot in the American League playoffs dominating your every thought, word and deed these days?

CHICAGO -- With supreme self-possession, an air of quiet defiance and a touch of humor, Hillary Rodham Clinton took on her critics last night, defending her belief that "it takes a village" to raise a child, and rocking the convention hall.As Mrs. Clinton stepped up to the podium here in her hometown, the convention hall exploded in a thunderous ovation -- with the crowd waving "Welcome Home Hillary" signs, chanting and stomping their feet -- that lasted almost five minutes."I'm overwhelmed by your warm welcome," she said.

CHICAGO - There was 13 years' worth of pent-up emotion waiting for Michael Jordan at the United Center last night, and he really didn't want any of it. In what is presumed to be the last game that he will play in the city he put on the basketball map, Jordan reluctantly accepted a four-minute pre-game ovation before grabbing a microphone and, in a sense, asking the crowd to stop and let him play one final time. Given how poorly he and the Washington Wizards played, Jordan perhaps should have let the crowd keep cheering, to forestall the 104-97 loss the Chicago Bulls hung on him - the first time Chicago has beaten Jordan since he returned to the NBA last season.

ASHBURN, Va. - To no surprise, Deion Sanders drew the most attention from the media, the most calls for autographs from the fans and the two biggest ovations of the afternoon yesterday. The first roar from the 2,800 attending the opening day of Washington's training camp at Redskin Park came when Sanders caught a punt, jogged about 20 yards up the sideline and returned the ball to the long snapper - a rather nondescript play that took on meaning simply because of his name. Returning punts, however, is part of what Sanders does and what makes him one of the league's most exciting players.

Nobody asked me, but … the fans who gave Ray Rice a standing ovation before Thursday's preseason game apparently have not read the Ravens' fan behavior policy - specifically, the part that says: "Fans help shape the Ravens' image. " They also missed this: "Have fun, root hard, show respect for the fans around you, but don't be a jerk!" The policy obviously needs to be revised. Along with cowbells and coolers, it ought to prohibit mass displays of obtuseness about domestic violence.

Before his name was even announced over the speakers at Camden Yards, the announced crowd of 39,487 stood and gave Orioles reliever Andrew Miller a rousing ovation as he jogged from the bullpen to the mound Friday night. “Pretty cool reception,” said Miller, the newest member of the Orioles' bullpen. “I don't think I ever dreamed of having anything like that. I don't necessarily expect it again. But it was pretty neat. “At the same time, I kind of had to step down and cool off. I had a job to do. But it was pretty neat.

It's really not a big deal. Nothing, truly, can be a big deal in an All-Star Game with 79 All-Stars. But you can't look at the fastballs Adam Wainwright threw to Derek Jeter last night in comparison to the cutting, diving offerings to Mike Trout one batter later and, at the very least, not notice a difference. Wainwright admitted, then un-admitted, that he grooved one for Derek Jeter's leadoff double in last night's All-Star Game, and it's honestly unclear who cared. Sure, Twitter kind of went crazy and I definitely noticed and texted some buddies about it. But I can't understand why it mattered.

As Trayvon Martin's mother stood at the altar of Baltimore's Empowerment Temple on Sunday, the Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant asked for anyone whose child had also been the victim of "senseless violence" to come forward. At least a dozen women and men assembled at Sybrina Fulton's feet before she stepped down to grab one of them. She squeezed the woman, patted her back and whispered in her ear. Then Fulton moved down the line, tightly embracing each mother, grandmother and father, each of them too familiar with loss, until she'd touched them all. Congregants erupted into deafening applause and brushed away tears.

The Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant, pastor of a Baltimore mega-church, stood on stage with Trayvon Martin's family, attorneys and Al Sharpton on Tuesday evening in a nationally televised news conference after a Florida special prosecutor announced that George Zimmerman would be charged with second-degree murder in the teen's death. "This is not a night of victory — this is a night of transition," he said. "Years from this moment, historians will have to write a new chapter. This is not a moment, but the beginning of a movement.

On Capitol Hill, some lawmakers treat Elizabeth Warren as if she were Public Enemy No. 1. That's what happens when you're charged with setting up an agency whose purpose is to protect consumers on financial matters — a job that brings you up against supporters of banking interests. But in Baltimore, where the Harvard law professor spoke at a town hall meeting held by Rep. Elijah E. Cummings last week, she received rock-star treatment. In fact, she was called a "rock star" a few times and received two standing ovations from the overflowing crowd at the Enoch Pratt Free Library auditorium.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland - The day before last month's U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, there was a touching ceremony to honor defending champion Payne Stewart, who died tragically in a plane crash in October. It ended with 40 players hitting golf balls into Stillwater Cove. Yesterday, on the eve of the 129th British Open at the Old Course, there was an uplifting exhibition to honor the tournament's living champions. There were 22 of them, including 88-year-old Sam Snead. Making his first trip back here since winning the Open in 1946, Snead received the loudest ovation.
