The nervous feeling crept in during the eighth round, maybe the ninth. He couldn't win, couldn't keep the tireless man in front of him from pounding his ribs and the sides of his head. But Leavander Johnson wouldn't go down. He's a tough, old veteran, I thought at first. But then it occurred to me that I might be watching a man get beaten to death for the first time in my life. I was relieved when referee Tony Weeks stopped Jesus Chavez from hitting Johnson in the 11th round of their lightweight title fight 10 days ago. The deposed champion walked around the ring and seemed to speak coherently.

At the risk of getting too existential for our own good, we pose this question: When is a bar officially a sports bar? If it serves beer and the grainy 27-inch Sylvania in the corner is turned to the Ravens even though there are only three people watching -- whoops, make that two, since one of them just passed out (but still gripping his Bud Light!) -- is that a sports bar?

Oliver Stone's The Doors is reaching a fever-dream climax, with Jim Morrison/Val Kilmer about to screech something about his mother amid the throb of "The End," when the bottom third of the screen explodes in a lime-green flash. Talk about your bad trips: It's an on-screen promo for Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. OK, so maybe that's what you get for watching The Doors on Bravo in the first place. Bravo used to skim the cream of the art-film coffee, but that was before the network got bought by NBC. Now it's home to Celebrity Poker, West Wing reruns, Queer Eye and Inside the Actor's Studio.

But the American Academy of Pediatrics may have startled them nonetheless with its recent recommendation that children under age 2 watch no television at all.The organization also recommended that parents keep logs for their pediatricians of the nature and amount of programming their older children watch.Scientific evidence to support the claims was scant, and the warning may be overblown.

If your mind still runs a continuous loop of old resentments that involve Bob Irsay and Mayflower moving vans and horseshoes in the Hoosier Dome, go read about the Terps or check out the tire ads.
