EXETER TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Ryan Haney liked the way his team looked before its PIAA Class AAA quarterfinal at Exeter Township High. The Archbishop Ryan girls' soccer team was focused, the coach said, and the players' eyes just looked "right. " It was a far cry from the way the Ragdolls had appeared Tuesday in a first-round game, in which they seemed nervous and a little bit off, Haney said. "The right songs were on the radio. Everything looked like it fell into place," Haney said.

HARRISBURG - Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Corbett on Friday accused some jobless Pennsylvanians of choosing to collect unemployment checks rather than going back to work, prompting swift criticism from his Democratic opponent and one of the state's top labor leaders. "The jobs are there. But if we keep extending unemployment, people are just going to sit there," Corbett told Harrisburg radio station WITF at a campaign stop in Elizabethtown. "I've literally had construction companies tell me, 'I can't get people to come back to work until . . . they say, "I'll come back to work when unemployment runs out. " ' " Democratic candidate Dan Onorato charged Corbett with being out of touch at a time when Pennsylvania's unemployment rate is at 9.1 percent, a 26-year high.

With Say Anything, Jerry Maguire and Almost Famous, writer-director Cameron Crowe set the bar so high that you forgive him a miss like Vanilla Sky. Elizabethtown, in which a sneaker designer wonders whether his dud of a product launch qualifies as a failure or a fiasco, is an unmitigated, inexplicable, unforgivable flop. Orlando Bloom stars as the shell-shocked Drew Baylor, designer for Mercury, a Nike-like firm, who is recalled to company headquarters as his defective shoe is recalled from every Foot Locker around the globe.

"Whoa! Listen to that," says Kirsten Dunst, leaning her head toward the open window, and the sounds of screaming fans echoing from the street below. It's the Toronto Film Festival, and gawkers and celeb-stalkers are camped at the entrance of the Four Seasons Hotel; every time a star enters or exits, there's a kind of ascending choral swell, like the sound of bettors at the Kentucky Derby as the horses head for the finish line. "I don't understand it," says the actress, who had been on the receiving end of the crowd's whoops earlier in the day. "People get so sycophantic - especially girls about boys.
