If Mike Myers had a dollar for every person who has gotten in his face and bellowed "grooovy, baby!" he could finance the next Star Wars installment. Austin Powers has become a monster that is only likely to get bigger following Friday's release of its sequel, The Spy Who Shagged Me. Living in an echo chamber of Powers-speak might send other actors to the booby hatch, but it's music to Myers' ears. "It's outrageously flattering because this is a real labor of love," said Myers, a bit wan after a pounding press tour that might have been engineered by Dr. Evil himself.

The comparisons are inevitable, but Don Estel will not make them. Estel, Eastern's venerable boys' cross-country coach, can't see the point of checking sophomore Dan Deichert's times against senior Mike Myers' times from his sophomore season. Since Estel will not make the comparison, here is how the runners stacked up at Friday's Olympic Conference championships. Myers covered the 3.1-mile course at Gloucester County College in 15 minutes, 33 seconds to beat one of the best fields he has seen this season by 13 seconds.

You can forget VH1's The Pick Up Artist, with its fuzzy-hatted host Mystery and his scary bedroom eyes. You can burn your copies of Neil Strauss' cheeky and lurid book The Game. You may even be able to hold off seeing a shaggy Mike Myers play that Deepak Chopra wannabe in The Love Guru, at least until it's out on DVD. Philadelphia has its own love guru, Stephen Dingley, a man who specializes in teaching people how to warm to the ways of l'amour without seeming like a creep.

Mike Myers wasn't about to let a little adversity get him down. In sixth grade, he was cut from the track team at Voorhees Middle School. Two years later, he has become one of the area's top middle-distance runners. As an eighth grader, Myers made it through the entire school year undefeated. Myers won three different 2.5-mile races staged in Philadelphia during the fall. This spring, he remained in peak form, winning every race he entered in the 800 meters and 1,600 for Voorhees Middle School.

There should be a new rule in Hollywood. George Lucas should be allowed to make "Star Wars" movies, but he should have to make them with Mike Myers. That way, instead of Liam Long Face talking about the trade federation and taxation, you would have a bosomy model in a fur bikini saying, "Make love to me, Monkey Man!" With those six words, the real summer movie season - disgraceful, pie-in-the-face juvenile, and also funny - begins in earnest. And not a weekend too soon.

Now can Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas get married, already? Baby Dylan Michael Douglas was born to the Hollywood twosome Tuesday evening at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. "Everbody's doing great," said a spokeswoman for Zeta Jones. Wee Dylan weighed in at 7 pounds, 7 ounces. No word on whether his name is a nod to his mother's Welsh extraction or his father's baby-boomer musical tastes.

Mike Myers' third-place finish in Saturday's South Jersey Open wasn't a surprise. Back that up, for a second. If somebody had told Myers before the season that he would finish third, he wouldn't have been surprised. But after the season he has had, the Eastern sophomore nearly did cartwheels after beating runners such as Cherokee's Ben Werbos and Absegami's Bobby Broomhead. "It was an amazing race," Myers said after finishing the Division III race in 15 minutes, 46.7 seconds.

Eastern junior Mike Myers said he would have won anyway. He said the Vikings could have beaten anyone. The Overbrook girls said they ran the best race they could and were more than happy to take their first Camden County championship. Yesterday's county meet had an odd feel about it, with teams choosing not to run their best runners - or not to compete at all - while other teams were hampered by injuries. Still, the winners weren't going to let that diminish their accomplishments.

Eastern junior Mike Myers stared at the clock most of the night. He said he could not sleep because of medication he had just started taking for a sinus infection. With a little coaxing, he conceded that nerves could have had something to do with it. Running in the Penn Relays, in one of the biggest races of his life, Myers apparently had no reason to be nervous. "I'm real happy," Myers said. "This is better than I expected. I had a sinus infection and haven't trained that much, and to come out sick and do this is real good.

It's been so easy, yet painfully difficult at the same time. Eastern junior Mike Myers has catapulted to the top of the state's cross-country ranks with a natural talent that makes it seem simple. Injuries and allergies made the trip a struggle, though. "In gym class in sixth grade, I just started running," Myers said. "I had never run before and it was just amazing. It just felt so easy running laps around the field at school. "I never had a lot of confidence in sports.

Shep Gordon , like Zelig and Forrest Gump before him, has crossed paths with world leaders, lunched with legends, mingled meaningfully with movie stars and musicians, the glamorous and the great. The big difference, of course, is that Gordon - a fabled manager, music impresario, film exec, and showbiz playmaker - is a real person. The other difference is that though chance, or fate, or what-have-you brought Zelig, or Gump, or Gordon together with famous figures, Gordon acted on his encounters.

Ordinarily you would have to go to a kindergarten lavatory to hear poop and pee jokes the caliber of those found in Austin Powers in Goldmember. Scrape it off your heel and flush it down the nearest toilet. This third installment of the spy spoof conceived by and starring Mike Myers is as unfunny as the first two were giddy goofs. (OK, if you're at the multiplex, sneak in and watch the first six minutes, which are hilarious, but after that the film inexplicably, irreversibly, irredeemably goes south.

Hey, when you split it four ways, the reported $25 million paycheck handed over to Mike Myers for Austin Powers in Goldmember isn't that big a deal. That's $6.25 million for the dentally challenged British superspy who coos "Groovy, baby!"; $6.25 million for the bald, pinky-wielding scarface Dr. Evil; $6.25 million for the freckled Dutchman with the prosthetic organ who goes by the name of Goldmember; and $6.25 million for Fat Bastard, the rotund Scotsman whose hirsute-ness is as frightening as his Highlands-scaled hillocks of flesh.

When Don Estel talks about the miles Mike Myers has traveled, he is not talking about distance. The Eastern boys' cross-country coach is talking about growth. He is talking about better focus and greater confidence. He is talking about poise and self-motivation. He is talking about maturity. "He has come many, many miles," Estel said. "It wasn't always an easy journey. It was a battle. " Myers won the battle, and Myers won the races. This fall, Myers, an Eastern senior, fulfilled the potential and expectations that had been heaped upon him since he was a freshman.

Mike Myers has confirmed our suspicion that Hollywood can be a dark and scary place. Sometimes literally and figuratively. The "Austin Powers" star has, as promised, filed a countersuit against Universal Pictures, which last month sued him, claiming he broke a deal to write, produce and star in "Dieter," a comedy based on one of his old "Saturday Night Live" characters. Myers is suing the studio for invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotion distress. Here's the dark part: His complaint alleges that when Universal sued him, a process server "engaged in stalkeresque, thug-like, outrageous and reckless conduct - chasing Myers and his wife in their vehicle at night at a high rate of speed down dark, winding and unlit streets, and nearly causing Myers to crash.
