Last week, NBC announced its coverage plans for the Winter Olympics, now less than a month away in Turin, Italy. On the list of assignments for different sports, it's interesting to note (as Vin Scully would say - and as Jon Miller would say when imitating Vin Scully) the former athletes from other sports with very specific Olympic jobs. Some are long on the road to sportscasting careers that don't depend anymore on the expertise of their competitive careers, but let's take a look: Tim Daggett (gymnastics)

The Inquiring Reporter:Why don't we just cut to the chase and begin Cal Ripken's standing ovation on Labor Day?Also, are we correct in assuming Cal never missed a day of school, never missed church and Sunday school, a dentist's appointment or a homework assignment?Also, what's your best guess as to how many times Cal will see the movie "Silence of the Lambs" when he's already seen it 20 times and the thing was released in 1991? A thousand?* Tell me, is that excruciatingly tense battle for the wild-card spot in the American League playoffs dominating your every thought, word and deed these days?

POTOMAC -- Simon Hobday, despite functioning on but an hour's sleep, proved as popular with his down-to-earth wit and wisdom at the site of this year's Senior Open Championship, which begins at Congressional Country Club June 29, as he was the day last July when he stepped off Pinehurst No. 2 with the senior title.The self-professed "hot dog player" said after carding back-to-back 77s at a tournament in Las Vegas last weekend he deserved no better than a "red-eye" flight east to fulfill an obligation to publicize this USGA event.

In the true-to-life movie "Murder in the First," the first words uttered by Alcatraz inmate Henry Young, after battling to retain his sanity through more than three years in a medieval pit called solitary confinement, are, "What kind of a year is DiMaggio having?"It is the early 1940s, Joe D is the crown prince of the diamond and Young, speaking to an attorney who is to represent him on a murder charge, cannot understand why this man has no interest in baseball. He scolds the lawyer for passing up the chance to listen to all the games denied him through incarceration.

Jon Miller tells a story that speaks volumes about the curious nature of celebrity -- or maybe it doesn't.This past winter, the Oriole and ESPN baseball broadcaster takes a cruise from England to San Francisco via the Panama Canal. This being a British ship, no one has the slightest idea who he is. Which is fine with Miller, because this way he's not encircled every five minutes by florid-faced men in loud Bermuda shorts swirling the ice in their Bacardi and Cokes and barking, "Let's hear ya do Vin Scully!"
