Think you're good enough - or wacky enough - for American Idol ? Get your traveling gear ready. Signups are Sunday and Monday for next Tuesday's tryouts at the Izod Center at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J. Alas, the ratings hog of a talent show won't be back in Philadelphia this year. Too bad. Last year's auditions here not only set some kind of record for wannabes getting wristbands, but produced some of last season's most memorable personalities. Like the Bucks County guy who serenaded judge Paula Abdul with his "Stalker" song.

His team MVP trophy for the game hardly served as a consolation for Gerry Wixted, but it was another indication that the 6-foot-7 senior enjoyed a truly impressive postseason. Wixted ended his season and career with last night's 53-39 loss to Trenton Catholic in the Tournament of Champions basketball final at the Izod Center. In defeat, Wixted performed as well as he had in so many of the wins this season. He had 16 points, eight rebounds, and eight blocked shots. Wixted shot 7 for 16 from the field, but the rest of the team was 8 for 29. So Wixted and his teammates, while feeling the sting of the loss, will no doubt reflect on better games during a 29-2 season that earned the Irish The Inquirer's No. 1 South Jersey ranking and a Non-Public A state title.

HERE'S A LAUGHER: Nets CEO Brett Yormark got upset at a fan who wore a paper bag on his head to Monday night's 99-89 loss to Miami. Photos all over the Internet show Yormark pointing in disgust at Chris Lisi, of Middletown, N.J., a Nets fan who actually paid money to see a team currently making a run for the distinction of being the worst in the history of the NBA. An Associated Press report said Yormark asked Lisi why he needed...

In a young season already filled with some not-so-good moments, a loss to the winless New Jersey Nets last night would have been the worst for the 76ers. It would have been bad because New Jersey's bench looked like a brokerage firm: lined with suits. The Nets were missing four key players from a team that, even with its starters, isn't all that competitive. And still, on the game's final possession, New Jersey had a chance. But on its final inbounds play, New Jersey committed a scratch-your-head turnover that secured the Sixers' 82-79 victory at the Izod Center.
