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.

Since all-wheel-drive crossover SUVs have become so popular in snow-prone places such as Philadelphia, I thought an AWD crossover variation on the Annual Inquirer Cheap Car Survey might be of service. As it turns out, you don't have to spend half of the gross national product of Uganda to get home in a snowstorm. I found five perfectly serviceable AWD crossovers for less than $22,500. Indeed, three of them are less than $21,500. These entry-level compact crossovers are base models with decent standard equipment litanies and reasonable room for folks and cargo.

2014 Audi Q5 TDI Quattro TipTronic vs. 2014 BMW X5 xDrive35d: Luxury and diesel together? This week: Audi Q5. Price: $51,445 as tested ($46,500 base price). A gasoline-powered version starts at $37,300. Marketer's pitch: "Utility meets elegance in the Audi Q5. " Conventional wisdom: In the non-TDI, Edmunds.com likes the "top-notch interior craftsmanship; . . . superb brake performance; roomy back seat; sporty handling" but not the "below-average cargo capacity; unintuitive control layout without navigation; artificial steering feel.

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.

Lexus invented the luxury crossover SUV when it introduced its RX model 16 years ago. For that Edisonesque accomplishment, the upmarket manufacturer was issued a license to print money. The RX sells more than 100,000 copies a year, making it this country's top-selling luxury vehicle. That many sales of a vehicle that starts at $40,795 translates into yumongous yens, particularly when you're talking about premium-brand profit margins. Now, it seems, the king of the Lexus showrooms will have to cede a little floor space to a new kid brother, the Lexus NX. Due in the dealerships in late November/early December, the NX is Lexus' new entry-level crossover, a somewhat smaller, sportier, and cheaper variation on the RX. Unlike the pioneering RX, however, the NX is rather late to the compact crossover party.

The manual transmission is still a principal player on the global stage, where it finds a role in roughly half the vehicles sold. But here in the United States, the stick shift has to settle for bit parts. It now figures in only 5 percent of this country's car and truck sales, most of them performance-minded machines and small, inexpensive econocars. Indeed, the vehicles most people buy, like crossovers, midsize family sedans and pickups, are seldom offered with manual transmissions.

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 year's rendition of the Philadelphia Auto Show turns out to be a car cotillion of exceptional magnitude. Nearly a dozen 2015 cars and trucks will make their regional debuts at the show, which opens its nine-day run Saturday at the Convention Center. The debutantes range from the radically redesigned Ford F-150 full-size pickup and the brand new GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado midsize pickups to the Chrysler 200 midsize sedan, the Cadillac Escalade large SUV, and the latest coming of the iconic Ford Mustang.

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.
