LOS ANGELES - If the Oscars need a host, Billy Crystal is ready to talk. That was the message that came across over the weekend when Crystal, who hosted the show eight times between 1990 and 2004, answered a fan who asked an Academy Awards question after a 20th anniversary screening of City Slickers in Santa Monica, Calif. Crystal, from the stage of the Aero Theatre, admitted that he got "itchy" after last year's cameo on the Oscars and that he'd be ready to talk about a return to the global stage of the gala.

Seven years ago, Philadelphia was among five U.S. cities seeking to qualify to host the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, but it failed to make it to the medal round. The U.S. Olympic Committee wants to know if the city is ready to get back in the game. Letters went out this week to gauge interest for 2024 among the nation's 25 largest cities - including Philadelphia - and 10 others, the USOC said. Mark McDonald, Mayor Nutter's spokesman, was noncommittal Wednesday about whether the city would apply, but he spoke enthusiastically about what an honor it would be to host the Games.

Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said the school and the NHL were discussing bringing the Winter Classic to Michigan Stadium. Brandon said conversations about the annual outdoors showcase game were continuing Wednesday amid reports that the Detroit Red Wings would play the Toronto Maple Leafs on Jan. 1, 2013, at the Big House, which holds 110,000 for football games. The NHL said it had nothing to announce about the 2013 game. The crowd for a Michigan Stadium game would likely be the biggest: Michigan and Michigan State attracted a Guinness World Record 104,173 people for a hockey game on Dec. 11, 2010.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - After all the hype, controversy and anticipation, the Copa América Centenario is finally here. But with just hours left until Friday's opening kickoff, one of the biggest questions about the tournament hasn't been answered. Just how big a deal is it, really? It's not the World Cup. It's not a traditional Copa América, the championship tournament for South American national teams. While that event usually has a few guest teams, this one has six from North and Central America and the Caribbean, and they're on equal footing.

Are you willing to fight for the city you love, Philadelphians? To take it back from the repressive foreign overlords who've occupied City Hall, seized all media control, and banished the rank and file to decimated districts on the fringes of town? This is the premise of a dystopian-themed, high-budget video game, Homefront: The Revolution , launching Tuesday and already creating a buzz among game aficionados. "All we have to say is 'it's a first-person shooter set in Philly' and people are all aboard, anxious to play" the $59.99 game, reported Tim Brooks, a sales associate at the GameStop emporium on South Street.
