LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Dallas Stewart did it again. A year ago, his horse, Golden Soul, finished second in the Kentucky Derby as a 34-1 underdog. On Saturday, the Kentucky-based trainer pulled off another second-place finish, this time with 38-1 underdog Commanding Curve. It wasn't exactly the result Stewart wanted. “I thought he had a heck of a shot,” he said. But he had to tip his cap to the winner, California Chrome, who exceeded his expectations. “I was just hoping California Chrome would kind of give in a little bit, but he didn't,” Stewart said.

Before we get into the whole business of how I got Tony Danza's autograph, let me say that I've never understood the obsession some people have with getting a celebrity or an athlete to sign something. This came to mind after reading the front-page story in The Sun Monday about all the fans who show up at the Ravens' training camp for players' autographs. Some autograph seekers, the story said, get there at 3 in the morning. Three in the morning! If I'm dragging myself out of bed at that hour, it's for something important like the Grand Slam breakfast at Denny's, not to swat at mosquitoes on some darkened practice field just so I'll be in position to scream at Ray Lewis for his autograph.

Move over, lieutenant governors. Make way for Bono, Tony Danza and Big Bird. As this year's graduates go forth into the real world, their commencement speakers are increasingly celebrities and entertainers, rather than the relatively staid public officials who were a staple of ceremonies in the '60s and '70s. This year Bono spoke at the University of Pennsylvania, performer Tony Danza addressed the University of Dubuque, West Wing actor Bradley Whitford spoke at the University of Wisconsin, and Big Bird puppeteer Caroll Spinney spoke at Villanova University.

George Foreman's acting is almost good enough for 30-second snack food and muffler commercials. But the former heavyweight champ definitely does not have the stuff to star in a 30-minute, weekly sitcom.Yet that's what will be taking place, starting tonight at 8:30 on WJZ (Channel 13) with the debut of "George."There is no gentle way to say this: "George" is a mess, and I hope ABC will have the brains to cancel it fast.The sitcom stars Mr. Foreman as George Foster, a rich and retired boxer who spends most of his time sitting in his easy chair, eating snack foods, watching TV and browsing through catalogs.

NBC is turning its women loose on Monday night, scheduling four sitcoms with female lead characters in an effort to knock some of the wind out of perennial ratings king "Monday Night Football" on ABC.Playing the traditional role of the ratings champ, NBC yesterday became the first of the five networks to announce its fall lineup. The schedule includes eight new series (bringing back TV veterans Kirstie Alley, Tony Danza and Fred Savage) and a handful of old shows in new places. It doesn't include eight canceled series, chief among them the veteran "Unsolved Mysteries."

If you haven't heard, there's a baseball strike looming. I love baseball strikes myself, if just for the humor.Millionaire ballplayers walking picket lines. Rapacious owners not walking (they take limos) to the luxury hotel where they whine about how you can't get good help these days. Puts you in mind of "Grapes of Wrath."But, for some folks, this is deadly serious. If there's no baseball later this summer, what's a sports fan to do -- watch World Cup soccer, a game in which so little happens that C-Span was bidding for the rights?
