A couple of items that didn't make it into today's column:
*MASN is televising the Capital Classic high school basketball all-star game live Sunday at 5:30 p.m., carrying the main event between the Capital and U.S. teams from the Comcast Center. Byron Kerr of Washington's WTOP and excellent Terps analyst Chris Knoche call the game, which features two Sun All-Metro players on the U.S. squad -- Sean Mosley (St. Frances) and Henry Sims (Mount St. Joseph).
*Speaking of extra servings, if you haven't yet picked up the CBS College Sports Network, this might just tip the scales for you. CBSCS will be showing the Collegiate Nationals Eating Championship. The event takes place next weekend, but you have plenty of time -- it doesn't air until May 25. Competitors will consume "college food," cheeseburgers, hot dogs and french fries. And there's a Terp to root for -- Brian "Eatin' " Keaton, the No. 4 seed. By the way, this is "picnic style," which means no mushing or dunking of the food -- so no Kobayashi style hot-dog-in-the-water technique.

Thank you for the many responses to my query about biased sportscasters. I should be posting the highlights soon. Watch this space.
