A new holiday commercial for the NBA features Baltimore's Carmelo Anthony and other hoops stars playing a most unusual instrument: basketballs. Using nothing but bouncing balls, Melo and the other players offer a rather amazing rendition of the Christmas classic "Carol of the Bells. " Suppose it's actually "Carol of the Balls. " Behold: jill.rosen@baltsun.com @BaltInsider on Twitter

Some sports name three stars of the game after the game. I'll do that one better: I'm going to name them before the Ravens even play. These will be the three stars when the Ravens travel to Tampa Bay to face the Buccaneers on Sunday. 1. Tight end Owen Daniels When Daniels caught a pair of scores on play-action passes in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the football world collectively slapped its head, as if to say: "Why didn't we think of that?" Daniels was a frequent red-zone target for Gary Kubiak when the Ravens offensive coordinator was in Houston, and the plays he scored on were textbook Kubiak sets.

At the sound of two whistles, Matthew Bitner-Parish sets up at the shooting line. After another whistle, he draws his bow and stands still, eyes focused on the target 70 meters away. On a crisp fall day, Bitner-Parish trains during one of his biweekly practices on a field outside Ridgely Middle School in Lutherville-Timonium. A soccer practice is underway on an adjacent field, and neighborhood residents stroll past on a sidewalk up the hill. When he finally shoots, the string snaps back with a thud as the arrow takes off. It's another bull's-eye.

Baltimore will certainly have something to root for on the upcoming season of "Dancing with the Stars. " We'd already heard Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones -- known for a little end zone shuffle -- will be strutting his stuff, partnering with Karina Smirnoff. And joining him will be a woman who should have a serious edge -- Olympic skating champion Dorothy Hamill, who lives in Baltimore. Hamill will be dancing with Tristan MacManus. The Baltimore kids will be joining a cast including Wynonna Judd, Kellie Pickler and Aly Raisman.

Jean Marbella's column about "Dancing with the Stars" is right on ("Politics invades 'Dancing with the Stars'" Nov. 21). I watch DWTS for it's entertainment value, and I know that's all I'm going to get out of it. And yes, it's cheesy, and yes, they do occasionally find a diamond in the rough. And yes, I get upset when my favorite doesn't win. What is happening this season may be the demise of DWTS; I hear a lot of people saying this is the last year they will be watching.

"DWTS" showed signs of diversification tonight with a fun performance by a guest krumper. That's standard fare for Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance?" (love that show!) but not what I'm used to on a ballroom show. Another guest performer, Kelly Clarkson, joked about her inability to dance and that she'd turn the show into a comedy. Host Tom Bergeron countered with, "We could teach you. " Hmm, foreshadowing season 14? My anticipated bottom three were: Carson Kressley, Chaz Bono and Nancy Grace.

There ought to be a law. Pop/rock singers and other celebrities who think they can sing should not be allowed to sing the national anthem, especially at large nationally televised venues. The latest insult to our national anthem was at this year's Super Bowl. Time and time again, event promoters make the same mistake, and the performance becomes the subject of ridicule even before the final note is sung. There are three basic reasons why this is not a good idea. First, celebrities all too often forget the words.

During the summer, Archbishop Spalding senior golfer Micaa' Thomas said getting the opportunity to compete in the 2014 Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links in California in September was "a dream come true. " She made sure to make it a memorable one. In her opening round, Thomas hit her approach shot on the par-5 14th hole within an inch of the hole, tapping it in for one of her three birdies. The Golf Channel named it "The Shot of the Day" and she was interviewed following the round.

After winning five Washington Area Theatre Community Honors awards and a Ruby Griffith Award for production excellence last season, the 2nd Star theater troupe is opening its 20th season with a production of Stephen Schwartz's biblical musical "Children of Eden. " Although its January 1991 London premiere received mixed reviews and closed after three months, "Children of Eden," with book and libretto by John Caird, has become such a popular offering in community theater circles that its initial struggles are a faded memory.

With the start of the NHL season and MLB playoffs running concurrently as the calendar turns to October, Sports Illustrated lumped them together with some regional, cross-sport cover coverage. One of those regional covers features Orioles centerfielder Adam Jones and Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin, a somewhat unlikely pairing that doesn't make as much sense as the other cover boys. In the west, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw and Stanley Cup-winner Anze Kopitar of the Los Angeles Kings pair up. In the heartland, St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright and Olympic shootout hero T.J. Oshie of the St. Louis Blues are featured.

In the food world, the battle between serious carnivores and vegetarians is a famous one, with meat-eaters often claiming that without meat, food simply can't be that tasty. Clarksville restaurant Great Sage, which this year celebrates a decade of vegan, organic cookery, proves that even without meat, a meal can be hearty, satisfying and, yes, delicious. Though sometimes the restaurant's laid-back vibe veers into just-plain-slow territory, overall, dinner at Great Sage could win over even the most die-hard meat lover.

It's movie night and we're still minus our regular theme song. I'm bitter. There's popcorn throwing and an opening dance number with a couple of Marilyn Monroe references: The iconic dress over the exhaust grate from "The Seven Year Itch" and the pink dress number (copied by Madonna for her "Material Girl" video) from "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. " Then there are baseball players? Because she married Joe DiMaggio? I don't know. These things don't have to make sense. Tom Bergeron introduces Kevin Hart, who gets an escort from a couple of the female pros and a quick dance before going to the judges table.

Talking with Boog Powell can make you hungry. By the time the former Orioles star and current barbecue master has rhapsodized about the pleasures of, say, pit beef with horseradish sauce, homemade buttermilk biscuits and grilled asparagus with rosemary, chances are your mouth will be watering. "Oh, I love food," says the 6-foot-4 former slugger, laughing heartily. "I enjoy eating a good meal, whether it's steamed crabs, or collard greens and cornbread. … But my favorite is barbecue.

When Orioles first baseman Steve Pearce was sidelined for five games last week, his absence left a big hole in the lineup. Nobody realized it more than manager Buck Showalter. "He's in a little bit different stage of his career where people are counting on him, and he's kind of become a guy that we're leaning on," Showalter said. "That's what I've tried to relay to him, that you're a valuable part of this club. " Pearce, who was released by the Orioles earlier this season - and for the first six years of his career was the definition of a replacement player - has been one of several unlikely contributors for a team that won the American League East crown and is preparing to start the postseason on Thursday at Camden Yards.
