Baseball Home Run Derby 7 p.m. [ESPN]: This is the two-hour version of "going, going gone" from the All-Star festivities at Yankee Stadium. OK, so we know who won (and in case you don't, we won't spoil the surprise), but it's still a hoot watching - and no deep counts.

From the setting at the National Aquarium in Baltimore to the handmade seashell centerpieces to the sand- and shell-filled globes guests took home, Melissa Fraser and Michael Freshour planned a wedding that reflected their love of the outdoors and their own personal style. "I love aquariums," says Melissa, who once had planned to become a marine biologist. Even though the couple have no personal ties to Baltimore, the opportunity to get married at one of Melissa's favorite places drew them here for their big day. On the evening of Dec. 2, Melissa, who grew up in Long Valley, N.J., and Michael, who moved with his father's Navy career, settling finally in Fredericksburg, Va., gathered friends and family into a circle on the pier behind the aquarium.

IN JOHN GRISHAM'S sentimental little book titled Bleachers, a group of former high school football players gather in the bleachers at their old field, sharing memories as they wait for word that their feared and revered old coach has succumbed to cancer. It's a lovely scene, but I think Grisham got it wrong. As athletes, those guys never spent a minute in the bleachers during their high school careers, so it makes no sense that they would gather in that place to comfort one another. The bleachers are where their parents would have gone.

MOST PARENTS realize that watching television is not the most healthy activity for their children. 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. But the exaggeration helped make the point: Children need mental and physical activity, and watching television is the epitome of passivity.

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? FYI -- For more Baltimore-area sports bar listings, go online to baltimoresun.com/sportsbars.

It's official: Baltimoreans can't get enough of Barry Levinson, John Waters and David Simon. That's right, we love our hometown boys. According to Netflix, which tracks its rentals by the area of the country in which there's the heaviest demand, Baltimoreans are a receptive audience for one of their own - especially when they tell stories set and shot here. Among films especially popular here, Levinson's Liberty Heights and Avalon top the list, followed by Seasons 1 and 2 (in a combined boxed set)
