We don't ask much of sports movies. We'll put up with all manner of arrant nonsense as long as they deliver that formulaic moment of redemption in the end. But even graded on the steepest of jock curves, Crossover is a vast disappointment. It's You Got Served with backboards. Tech (Anthony Mackie) and Cruise (Wesley Jonathan) are lifelong friends who team up to take on Platinum, Detroit's reigning kings of streetball. Streetball is a form of razzle-dazzle basketball, where apparently palming and carrying the ball are legal.

Chevrolet's big eight-passenger crossover, the Traverse, enters its sixth year for 2014, having received some exterior styling tweaks, interior enhancements, and new technology just last year, all designed to make a great vehicle even better. Prices for 2014 begin at $30,795 for the base LS model with front-wheel drive, and run as high as $43,255 for the LTZ with all-wheel drive. Arguably one of the best of its class, the Traverse is an eight-passenger large crossover with lots of room for the family and their stuff.

Operatic tenors are taught to do many things while in conservatory, but interacting harmoniously with one another is not among them. Even the famous Three Tenors made millions of dollars singing at - rather than with - each other. No surprise, then, that when groomed-for-stardom tenors Salvatore Licitra and Marcelo ?lvarez met in the recording studio recently, the acts of preparation were described by Licitra as follows: "It was simple: Each of us wore a helmet. I carried a Kalashnikov.

This past week, DC Comics started its big summer crossover. This year's major crossover is called Zero Hour. Many of DC's stories have a problem with their time line. Zero Hour should straighten out all the problems and set all of the superheroes in the DC universe right. Any mistakes or errors that took place happened, but everything should be straightened out. All the major DC books will have a Zero Book. This in most cases will be an explanation of the heroes' origin.

It's a blustery evening in Manhattan and, inside Arista Records' West 57th Street headquarters, six men in baggy pants and cornrows are chilling in a mahogany-paneled conference room, laughing, talking, reviewing the day's itinerary. An insistent bass line pounds through the room's sound system, and rapid-fire rap lyrics cut through the air. Run-D.M.C.'s boisterous entourage is getting ready to call it a day. Joseph "Run" Simmons, decked out in a silver denim suit and a black wide-brimmed hat, announces to no one in particular that he's leaving in five minutes.

The conventional wisdom is that there is a theater audience and there is a dance audience and there is a music audience and they exist in separate, compartmentalized worlds of taste. In this view, people who enjoy Hamlet are different from those who like Giselle, and neither set of consumers goes out with each other or with the crowd that grooves on Philip Glass. If you're a Drama Guild subscriber, the Pennsylvania Ballet can forget about you because you've budgeted yourself for theater, thus locking yourself into legitimate theater and out of dance.

Coaches in the Suburban One National Conference often point to the crossover games as pivotal points of the season. Division championships have been won and lost based on those games. This season, however, they have had little impact on the Patriot and Colonial Division standings. The top four teams in the Patriot - Neshaminy, North Penn, Pennsbury and Council Rock - have lost only one of 24 crossover games. The Colonial leader, Abington, was unbeaten before losing consecutive games to Council Rock, Neshaminy and Pennsbury.

August Wilson's play The Piano Lesson recently opened on Broadway to rave reviews and won Wilson his second Pulitzer Prize for drama. His play Fences won the Pulitzer in 1987. Only two playwrights, Eugene O'Neil and Robert Sherwood, have won more Pulitzers for drama than Wilson, who has been hailed as a new force in American theater. Yet the character of the praise heaped upon Wilson reveals a skewed understanding of American art and, even deeper, of American culture and history.

The Pennsbury supervisors have come up with a traffic-flow plan for a small retail and office complex on Pond's Edge Drive. At a meeting Monday, the board ordered the excavation of a portion of the drive's median strip to allow the paving of a crossover allowing access to the rear of Briarcliffe Marketing, the yet-unfinished office and retail headquarters of a locally owned company that sells handmade American craft items. Briarcliffe owner Joan Fyk of Kennett Township said trucks need access to the rear entrance so they can enter the warehouse without crossing the front parking lot. In a 2-0 vote, with one member abstaining, the board agreed that the township road crew should remove four trees from the median strip and excavate the median at the crossover point.

Jamal Crawford used a crossover dribble to fake out Raja Bell and, wow, was it sweet. Crawford scored 11 of his 24 points in the final 5 minutes, including a rare four-point play and a crossover move that led to a key basket in host New York's 94-93 victory over Utah yesterday. "I was kind of saving that one," said Crawford, who had noticed throughout the game that Bell kept expecting him to drive left. "He thought I was going left, and I went right. " Crawford was his usual erratic self, missing his first six shots before eventually finding his stroke.

THE EFFECTS of Allen Iverson's career and carriage cannot be overstated. He influenced not only a league but a culture; braided, tatted and 'tuded; valiant, defiant, unapologetic. The 76ers retired Iverson's No. 3 on Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center in a stirring ceremony that offered a respite from the catastrophe they have created this season. Yesterday afternoon, Villanova dismantled Marquette on the court under which Iverson's number now hangs. If the Wildcats weren't aware that Big East nemesis Creighton lost Saturday night, putting Villanova atop the conference, it was because they were watching A.I.'s love-in.

SAMMY FOREMAN was helpless. The shot was in the air and the Martin Luther King junior guard had a great view as the potential game-winning three-pointer left the fingertips of Constitution's Ahmad Gilbert. Gilbert had caught the ball slightly right of center at the top and bought separation with a left-to-right crossover before he hoisted. And the shot was on target as it slowly descended toward the rim. "My heart," Foreman said as he banged on his chest, "was pounding and pounding.

This evening about 6:30 in East Rutherford, N.J., a soprano from the Metropolitan Opera will join the NFL. Televised to more than 100 million listeners, she will sail "The Star-Spangled Banner" aloft with operatic vibrato, and by Monday morning all of America will be so stirred by her voice that apps will collapse under the strain of the sudden demand for Verdi and Wagner. Scratch that. Authorities have charged a pair of New Jersey Metallica fans with organizing a massive classical-music ticket-scalping scheme after hearing pianist Lang Lang rocking out with the heavy metal band on last Sunday's Grammy broadcast.

Paul VI and St. Augustine Prep should play each other in football: They are Non-Public 4 programs representing schools that draw students from similar geographic and socio-economic sections of South Jersey. West Deptford and Delsea should play in football: They are multiple-time sectional champions with similar styles and lots of athletes who know each other from Gloucester County youth sports. Millville and Cherokee should play in football: They are Group 5 programs with rich traditions, supportive fans, and deep, talented rosters.

Spending a week behind the wheel of the 2014 Q5 TDI, the new diesel version of Audi's compact crossover, proved exceedingly pleasant duty. The only negative note was the fact that the test car had "TDI Clean Diesel" emblazoned in large letters on its front doors. Thus, driving the Q5 made me feel like an automotive answer to the guy walking around with a sandwich board urging people to "Eat at the Four Seasons.

Thirty years ago, Chrysler's tinkers put a van body on a car-like front-drive platform and the modern minivan was born. A flexible beast of burden good at hauling both people and cargo, the Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth minivans became a big hit in suburbia - and thus played a large role in the company's escape from insolvency. Their considerable profitability was why the folks at Chrysler called them "the crown jewels. " Other automakers got into the act, and the mini's annual sales climbed to a million by the dawn of the new millennium.

ALLEN IVERSON played with a chip on his shoulder the size of Gibraltar. It was his fuel. Sometimes that fuel flooded the engine, but Iverson never backed off a challenge. Maybe it was because of his childhood growing up in Hampton, Va., where he was the man of the house at a too-young age. Maybe it was seeing people from the neighborhood getting killed or going to prison. Maybe it was being imprisoned - wrongly, he believed - and missing out on his senior year of basketball. Or maybe because he was usually the smallest player on the court, feeling he had to prove himself every minute, showing everyone that size doesn't matter.
