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.

John Rovick, 93, the beloved host of a children's show in Los Angeles throughout the 1950s and '60s, died Saturday in Boise, Idaho, after a brief illness, his former station, KTTV-TV, told the Associated Press. For nearly two decades, Mr. Rovick appeared on the daily Cartoon Time show that earned him an Emmy Award for outstanding children's program. It was so popular that KTTV said it added another Rovick show, Sheriff John's Lunch Brigade , that stayed on the air until 1970.

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.

The question that hung in the overcast sky over Atlantic City was counterintuitive. Could this part-glitz, part-seedy, all-camp metropolis measure up to its tiny seashore neighbor Asbury Park? (In terms, that is, as host to one of the biggest gay beach parties on the East Coast.) Judging from the fierce crowd of men who gathered Saturday on the sand outside the Claridge Hotel - where the sunglasses were mirrored, the pectorals sculpted, and the bathing suits practically dermatological - and partied on through Sunday, the answer was, "Yes, girl!"

The clock is ticking on the Union. In a season in which little has gone right, they find themselves outside the playoff picture, in the lower half of the Eastern Conference standings. The Union (4-8-6), however, have earned seven points in their last four MLS games, making a playoff push possible. To make it a reality, they need more stretches like the last one. They sit just two points out of a playoff spot, but that's deceiving because they have played at least one more game than every team in playoff position.

WITH THE wonderful Marilu Henner heading the cast, there's already enough of a reason to see Christopher Durang 's 2013 Tony-winning comedy, "Vanya and Masha and Sonia and Spike" at New Hope's Bucks County Playhouse. But if you still need a nudge, know that you'll also be seeing Durang's debut in the role of Vanya. The July 17 to Aug. 10 run marks the first time that Durang, 65, who has sporadically performed for decades, will be on the boards since 2005, when he co-starred with Tony recipient Debra Monk in a Boston production of his two-person "Laughing Wild.

THE ODDS of Philadelphia hosting the 2016 Democratic National Convention just improved a bit. And the thanks goes to Cleveland. The Republican National Committee yesterday announced that it is recommending Cleveland for its 2016 convention. Cleveland is one of six cities that filed applications last month to host the Democratic convention that year. The Democratic National Committee's "exclusivity clause" in that bidding process will cut Cleveland from the running if that city signs a deal with the Republicans.

WHEN THE FIRST U.S. Open at Merion in 32 years ended last June with Justin Rose holding a trophy that many were probably hoping would have been Phil Mickelson's, the conventional wisdom seemed to be that the venue had done enough to earn itself a fifth Open at some point. And the most logical return date appeared to be 2030, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Bobby Jones completing his unprecedented Grand Slam there at the U.S. Amateur. Turns out it might not take nearly that long.

Philadelphia has become a big player on the national hockey stage. With the NHL draft at the Wells Fargo Center this weekend, it caps a four-year span in which the city has also hosted the Stanley Cup Finals, the Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park, and the NCAA's Frozen Four. In other words, Philly has come a long way since it held a parade to welcome an NHL expansion team in 1967 and about 25 people showed up. "It's obvious we are one of the top hockey cities in America," said Larry Needle, executive director of the Philadelphia Sports Congress, "and this is another in a long line of hockey events in the city.

A mist of white chalk sprang from the hands of David Praiss as he dropped a barbell into a shoulder-high stand Thursday morning. He had just come back up from a squatting position when his knees nearly touched his bright-orange "Genuine Jersey" T-shirt - meaning the state, not the fabric. He had 120 kilograms, or 265 pounds, of weight on his shoulders. As many champions do, Praiss pumped his arms in the air while cheers engulfed him inside Kendall Hall at the College of New Jersey in Ewing.

EAGLES LINEBACKER Connor Barwin bikes from his Rittenhouse Square apartment to work most days. Riding through Point Breeze in March, he passed a dilapidated basketball court and decided it needed a facelift. He wasn't the first to think so. In fact, Barwin was late to the party. Efforts to revitalize Ralph Brooks Park, at 20th and Tasker streets, had been underway for nearly a year. With support from local nonprofit Urban Roots, the ACE Mentor Program and the Philadelphia Water Department, the goal was to transform the aging park into a local hoops hub on par with New York City's legendary Rucker Park.
