ARCADIA, Calif. -- The slower Valiant Nature works, the better Ron McAnally likes it.The Hall of Fame trainer might be readying his horse for Saturday's Santa Anita Derby, but he has his sights set on Kentucky.McAnally has had his eye on recent East-Coast derby preps and is figuring out how to avoid a speed duel with horses like Holy Bull, winner of the Florida Derby, and Polar Expedition, the Jim Beam victor, on the first Saturday in May."Holy Bull is impressive. As he and the Jim Beam winner showed, speed is always dangerous," he said.

The scenario was awkward before the first note was played. A long-debated scheduling conflict put the Super Bowl -champion Ravens nearly 1,700 miles away from Baltimore on Thursday night - in Denver - for the team's first game of the regular season. Although the Ravens earned the right to open their season at home, all Baltimore got was a Keith Urban concert. Not that the more than 40,000 in attendance minded. A sea of purple and black flooded the area next to the Maryland Science Center at the Inner Harbor, waiting for the country star and "American Idol" judge to hit the stage floating on the water.

Valiant in name. But Valiant in aim? Or effort? It's a "stiff upper beak" comedy about heroic British homing pigeons fending off Nazi falcons as they bravely carry messages from the French Resistance to the Allies on the eve of D-Day. It's a perfectly competent cartoon, if rarely a thing of beauty. It's occasionally funny -- so long as you get that whole "Never so few" Battle of Britain fighter-squadron milieu and Monty Python's famous skewering of it. Not that your average 5- to 10-year-old will.

Requiem for a fighter:* "Last winter, when he got out of Good Samaritan Hospital, he went to Bennett [Institute for Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation], and they needed some players for football. Everybody had to be in a wheelchair. So I said I would help out, and I got in a wheelchair. I was on Steve's team. He made three touchdowns and he was really happy. He was high-fiving." -- David M.

Opera-goers are used to time travel. These days, conceptual directors think nothing of moving characters from 18th-century Seville in a Mozart opera to, say, Trump Tower. Or 19th-century Italian peasants in a Donizetti comedy to a 1950s American diner. Or mythological figures in Wagner epics to the Victorian era and even outer space. A case of backward motion, however, is something of a rarity. And, it's something of a misstep in the Baltimore Opera Company's valiant, but uneven, production of a neglected Rossini work, The Siege of Corinth.

Hollywood has come to an Irish village. Marie Jones' play Stones in His Pockets, which is being performed at Rep Stage at Howard Community College through Oct. 8, shows the uneasy relations between the film's cast and crew, and the villagers who have been hired as extras. Two actors, Bruce Nelson and Michael Stebbins, portray 15 roles, Hollywood and Irish, male and female.

PITTSBURGH -- In a season filled with embarrassing losses and unexpected slipups, the Ravens can now add bitter disappointment. Playing their best game of the season, the Ravens still fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers, 20-19, last night at Heinz Field before a national television audience. Jeff Reed's 37-yard field goal down the middle of the uprights with 1:36 left in the fourth quarter dashed the Ravens' chances of an unlikely win over their AFC North rival. The game-winner came just after Matt Stover had kicked a 47-yard field goal to give the Ravens their first lead of the game.
