I'm a dog man. Yet somehow my significant other, Jenny, and I wound up with two useless cats. It's one of those flukes of nature that occur in cities. Cities are too cramped and crowded for proper dogs.A proper dog is larger than a cat when it enters the world and can swallow a cat in one chomp when it leaves. Unless you're a single female or a K-9 cop, dogs in cities are an inappropriate luxury. Dogs need space, which in cities is a luxury of its own. So a friend pawned some nice-looking cats on us. Some ''friend.

After a one-year absence caused by last year's strike, the World Series returns to October TV -- although with a late calendar start. Do you remember when the classic was sometimes completed by Oct. 21?* "The World Series" (7 p.m.-10 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- And what are the odds that two teams with politically incorrect names and logos -- both borrowed from Native Americans -- would make the fall classic? Yep, the Atlanta Braves meet the Cleveland Indians in Atlanta in tonight's first game.

The TV Repairman:The Fox Network is talking a good game about what it is going to do to popularize hockey on television, but its claims fall down a little bit when you consider it's not even going to begin doing games until April. Hey, ain't that baseball season?After regionalizing Sunday games during April, Fox will skip ahead to the Stanley Cup final for Games 1, 2, and 7, which figure to be staged sometime in June.The net says it's going to go heavy on player personality spots by "taking the helmets off the players," hardly a new approach.

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- Steve Carlton, who refused to speak to the press during the last 10 years of his career, did a sudden turnabout yesterday when he was inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame.Carlton thanked the baseball writers for electing him in his first year of eligibility and then said:"It's like Rush Limbaugh being voted in by the Clintons."Carlton, who won 329 games and struck out 4,136 batters, second to Nolan Ryan, was among the three principals honored in a 2 1/2 -hour ceremony in an open meadow a short distance from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, the repository for the game's most treasured artifacts.

And just to make sure, during the league playoffs, CBS provided both. . .yaddada-yaddada-yaddada.With the start of the World Series, however, "the network of baseball's big games" so far has been up to the assignment with steady, even coverage.At the outset, get one thing straight about baseball in the middle of the football season: All the players are stupendous performers, who, except for the passage of time, certainly would have been in the lineup of the '27 Yankees or the '34 Gashouse Gang.

You hear a lot about madness this time of year. In fact, you heard about it in this very space last week. So I'm as much to blame as anyone for perpetuating these Ides of Madness.Well, maybe not anyone. Jim Nantz is more to blame than me. And Mike Francesa. Don't forget Billy Packer, James Brown and Bill Raftery. Plus Al McGuire and Tim Ryan. In fact, lots of people are more to blame than me. My therapist says I've got to stop feeling so guilty.But I digress.One has to discover sports serenity amid the madness.

If the American Olympic viewing audience was measuring the performance of prime-time anchor Jim Nantz against his CBS predecessors, Nantz would win hands down, for the people who have sat in his chair for the Eye were darn near indistinguishable.(In fact, without looking down further in this space, here's a challenge: Name two or even one of the three people who anchored CBS' Winter Olympics coverage in 1992 and 1994. Answer below.)Unfortunately for Nantz, his competition in the American consciousness is Jim McKay, who anchored ABC's Olympics coverage for 20 years with a warmth and charm that few broadcasters have ever captured.
