- O Canada, did it ever fill the arena, everyone singing, players with their thick arms draped around one another, fans weeping into their giant red jerseys, surely one of the loudest anthems ever. You know what? Let Canada sing. It earned it. It needed it. The joy, the relief, the redemption, and, of course, the farewell. On the final day of its official duties as Olympics hosts, Canada's national sport survived America's national grit Sunday, winning the gold-medal hockey game over the United States in overtime, 3-2, in front of a bouncing sea of braying red. The winners celebrated with the game's best ice dancing, nearly two dozen men locked in a jumping, board-rattling embrace.

I'm sorry, I tried to be good and accept life as a small-market CBS sports fan, getting the fourth-string crew and no sideline reporter for Ravens games. And, you have to admit, I managed for a couple weeks to sound like a properly grateful peasant in accepting the crumbs from the table of CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus. Did I not even say in one review that maybe CBS is right, it would be too expensive for the network to have sideline reporters on ALL the Sunday afternoon games - especially in markets like Baltimore?

In the post-"Scream" era, the teens-and-maniacs combo no longer works. "Scream" lampooned and celebrated slasher films so expertly that any subsequent movies are likely to seem quaint and out of it."I Know What You Did Last Summer" certainly does. It's hard not to compare it to "Scream," also written by Kevin Williamson.The trouble starts for Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr. when they accidentally kill a guy, whose body they dump into the ocean and forget about until a year later, when anonymous notes warn them, "I know what you did last summer."

Another week, another restaurant takeover. These takeovers, pop-ups and collaborations are getting to be a regular thing. We love them. This time, the chef on the road is David Alima, co-owner and "master creamer" at The Charmery, Hampden's home of hand-crafted ice-cream. Alima will be doing the guest-cheffing thing at Shoo-Fly Diner for a special Sundaes takeover tonight. Alima is partnering with Opie Crooks, Shoo-Fly's chef-de-cuisine, to create an ice-cream tasting menu, pairing up some of Shoo-Fly's favorite dishes with original ice cream creations from The Charmery.

Against a lurid sky, vividly streaked with waves of red and yellow, a grotesque figure cowers, his mouth and eyes wide open, his hands clasped to his ears. This familiar painting, The Scream, is Edvard Munch's most famous work. Yet for more than a century, the event that inspired it has eluded identification. Munch makes clear in a journal entry that The Scream grew from an experience he had while walking near Christiania (now Oslo), Norway, at sunset. "All at once the sky became blood-red ... clouds like blood and tongues of fire hung above the blue-black fjord and the city ... and I stood alone, trembling with anxiety ... I felt a great unending scream piercing through nature," it says.

What may be the most expensive and elaborate promotional campaign in the history of popular music slipped into high gear last night as MTV offered the exclusive premiere of Michael Jackson's new video, "Scream."With a production budget of some $7 million, it's a hugely expensive promo clip, costing three-and-a half times as much as TLC's elaborate, effects-laden "Waterfalls" video -- and that's not counting duet partner Janet Jackson's share of the royalties.But that's just a drop in the bucket compared with the $30 million Jackson's label plans to spend on promotion for his new album, "HIStory."

Now that the screens are in the doors and windows, I lower my voice.Remarks that, until recently, were confined to the household by closed windows now go shooting out the screens and into the public domain. If the neighbors didn't know better, they might think I actually scream at my children.I do not scream, I holler. Hollering is a kinder, gentler method of communicating to inattentive offspring than screaming. A holler is instructive, as in "Stop swinging the baseball bat in the kitchen."

Those who decry gun control of any scope or form -- the ones who never seem to give an intellectual inch in the political battle over handguns, in particular -- are starkly silent on those rare occasions when the ghosts scream in their faces. There are ghosts in the eyes of literally millions of men, women and children whose loved ones have been killed with guns. And yet, they could all line up and tell their stories and light candles, and those who oppose gun laws would note the emotional ravings, then assert as higher principle the absolute right to bear arms.

You can't go home again. Or in the case of reunited director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson, you can't Scream again. In Cursed, they made a werewolf movie and it was so messed up, they reshot half of it. They fiddled with it for more than a year, trying to recapture the magic of their Scream teaming. Christina Ricci plays a young producer with TV's Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn. She's giving up on trying to talk hot club-designer Jake (Joshua Jackson) into a commitment.

The news and social media website Mashable has pulled together its top 50 stunning sports photos of the year from Getty Images' Year in Focus archives, and Mount St. Joseph and Washington College grad Stephen Berger is No. 3 on the list. Berger, a midfielder who began the season with the New York Lizards, is shown yelling his way through two rows of kids and high-fiving them during player introductions before a May 31 game at Hofstra. It might've been the highlight of that night for Berger, who didn't have any points and took only one shot on goal in a 14-12 loss to the Charlotte Hounds.

Am I the only one growing weary of the whining letters to the editor about new taxes proposed by Gov. Martin O'Malley? If I am not mistaken, these letters are not being written by people who will be severely stressed by modest increases in a variety of taxes. Take the letter from Mark Wilson ("O'Malley's perfect record on taxes and fees," April 4). One has to wonder if he is perfectly content to allow the state's infrastructure to continue to decay without anything being done to fix it. Is he not embarrassed over the condition of many of the schools in this state?

An Arundel Middle School student was issued a juvenile citation Tuesday after two classmates told school officials that he threatened them with a 3-inch knife, one of two incidents at the Odenton school this week. Also this week, a teacher was videotaped screaming at a student while admonishing her in front of classmates Wednesday. The video was posted on Facebook, and the teacher has since been removed from her classroom and is on leave while school officials investigate. In the knife incident, Anne Arundel County police said in a news release that Arundel Middle's resource officer was told about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday that a 12-year-old male student had made threats with the knife to a 12-year-old boy and 11-year-old girl.

"I wanted her to be deliciously sweet," Drew Barrymore says of her doomed sweater chick in "Scream," the Wes Craven homage to slasher flicks now in theaters. "You never want to see bad things happen to a sweet person."Just then, a call comes through to her Manhattan hotel suite. The eeriness of the timing isn't lost on Hollywood's oldest 21-year-old: Her "Scream" character's ordeal begins with a phone call."Hey, isn't that ironic," she says, then bellows: "Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!"The playful scream could probably be heard out on 57th Street, 43 floors below.

Parents, please: If your juvenile entourage is screaming or complaining that a movie is too scary, let your children go - and you will earn the thanks of every adult sitting around you. You may even wind up with a happier, healthier child. At a preview showing of Monster House, a little girl started whimpering in the opening minutes. Why wouldn't she? In the first scene, a cadaverous old man with terrifying teeth and spooky eyes seizes a child's tricycle, breaks off the front wheel and then tosses it inside the title house.

No other director has left his name on as many horror-movie touchstones as Wes Craven. From "The Last House on the Left" (1972) and "The Hills Have Eyes" (1977) to "A Nightmare on Elm Street" (1984) and "Scream" (1996), his American nightmares have spawned scores of film or TV follow-ups, spin-offs or remakes. His movies have engaged fresh crowds of collegiate audiences with each new filmgoing generation. His career is based on experiments in terror — the kind of filmmaking you'd think would come from "movie brats" who spent their youth hopping from theater to theater, in search of the next primal scream.
