That all-sports radio station, Washington's WTEM (570 AM), is on the air, and I'm determined to listen. Unable to pick it up at home, I set out in my car in search of the lost signal.After a strategic stop at Taco Bell, I hit the road. This was serious. When I began driving and flipping the dial, I was holding a burrito and a large Mountain Dew, but I soon put down the Mountain Dew. (Remember, folks, I'm a professional; don't try this at home.)I kept a log of what I heard:12:05 p.m.: "Welcome to Taco Bell, may I take your order?"

ESPN let the veteran play-by-play announcer out of his contract to continue as the voice of Monday Night Football when it moves from ABC next season and yesterday announced a new three-man team for the booth - Mike Tirico on play-by-play, joined by ex-quarterback Joe Theismann and Washington Post columnist Tony Kornheiser. "Al let us know he was not comfortable with our vision in what we were doing," John Skipper, ESPN executive vice president for content, said in a teleconference yesterday.

WASHINGTON -- After 33 years of getting their baseball fix through the Orioles, fans in the nation's capital finally have a team they can call their own. So what happens? They excitedly turn on their televisions the past few days and find the Orioles are on, but their team -- the Washington Nationals -- is nowhere to be seen. "Oh, the irony," said Colin Mills, president of the Nats Fan Club. "We can watch all the Orioles games here in D.C., but we just can't watch our own team's games."

WASHINGTON -- In a move that could cost the franchise more than $20 million and an untold amount of prestige, the Washington Wizards announced yesterday that Michael Jordan will not return as president of basketball operations. Jordan, who played for the Wizards for two seasons after 1 1/2 years as head of basketball operations, met briefly yesterday morning at MCI Center with majority owner Abe Pollin, Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis, who heads the investment group through which Jordan joined the Wizards' organization in January 2000, and attorneys for both sides.
