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.

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?

I may remodel the basement to be a separate apartment. How should I go about starting this, perhaps as an Airbnb? How should this be different from just a guest room? - T. A: I love that you are working toward accomplishing your dream. But before you list your room, look carefully into your city's regulations for short-term rentals.

Legendary bassist and sartorial maven Jamaaladeen Tacuma has forever hung at the busy intersection of magic-making avant-garde jazz and experimental fusion-funk. The Southwest Philadelphia native, by age 19, was playing in Ornette Coleman's Prime Time (recording free classics such as 1977's Dancing in Your Head and 1978's Body Meta ), and angular guitarist James Blood Ulmer's torrid Tales of Captain Black in 1978. If Tacuma had stopped there, he would have cemented his avant-jazz cred, but this is also a gentleman who once held down the groove for Philadelphia organist Charles Earland and earlier this month was part of the Jazz Foundation of America's 25th anniversary Loft Party in Manhattan, keeping hard, funky time with trombonist Craig Harris and playing David Bowie songs.

The Union are relatively healthy entering their Major League Soccer match Saturday against the visiting San Jose Earthquakes, but one starter will definitely be missing. Left back Fabinho will have to sit out the game because of yellow card accumulation. He received his fifth yellow card in the 2-0 victory over New York City FC on Saturday at Talen Energy Stadium. That means a return to the starting lineup of longtime fixture Ray Gaddis. Before this season, Gaddis had made 109 starts in his first four years with the Union.
