The game was there to be taken and, inexplicably, Hersey Hawkins would not take it. The game was there to be grabbed by the throat and, inexplicably, Hersey Hawkins would not grab it. It was a night that cried for The Hawk and, inexplicably, he was unable to answer the cry. In recent seasons, when Charles Barkley has been unable to create Barkleymania, The Hawk has been the 76ers' next-best answer. He would take his textbook jumper, step out and launch his deadly three-point shot, drive doggedly to the basket and score inside or draw fouls.

Norm Eggen did it again! For the fourth straight year, which in this case is "since the beginning of time," Norm and his talented crew from the "Old Country Deli" won top honors, "People's Choice," at the Fourth Annual San Luis Obispo Rib Cook-Off. Ribs, barbecued ribs, are big in San Luis Obispo. They are served by the thousands every Thursday night on Higuera street when the street is blocked off between Osos and Nippomo. Local farmers bring in pickup loads of fresh produce and set up stalls along both sides of the street.

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick told the Daily News he did not tell anyone from CBS that he actually had three broken ribs, and not the torn rib cartilage the Eagles announced after Vick was sandwiched between two Redskins defenders Oct. 3. During yesterday's broadcast, announcer Jim Nantz said Vick gave that account of the injury during a Saturday conversation. "I never said that," Vick said following his postgame news conference. In the long run, it might not matter much - torn rib cartilage is a pretty big deal, no less signficant than broken ribs.

Add defensive end Greg Townsend to the list of injured Eagles. Townsend is nursing sore right ribs - the result, he says, of being kicked while on the ground in a scrum during last Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. And, incidentally, the cast that defensive end William Fuller will wear to protect his right thumb is smaller than the cast Andy Harmon has been wearing for the past seven games. Fuller has an unusual fracture under his right thumbnail. He is probable for the Falcons game.

New York Yankees pitcher Carl Pavano has two broken ribs, a result of a car accident several weeks ago that he did not tell the team about until Saturday. Pavano, who has not pitched in the major leagues since June 2005 because of shoulder, back, buttock and elbow injuries, is scheduled to make a rehabilitation start tomorrow for triple-A Columbus. General manager Brian Cashman said yesterday that Pavano had made three rehab starts with the rib injuries. Barry Bonds' personal trainer was on his way back to jail after being held in contempt of court for refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating the San Francisco slugger.

Charlie Garner's season is over. The Eagles placed the running back on injured reserve yesterday, 18 days after he suffered two broken ribs in a game against the New York Giants. Garner became the fifth Eagles player to go on IR since Dec. 1. Fullback Mike Reed was promoted from the practice squad to take Garner's spot on the roster. Reed became the seventh player added to the 53-man roster this month. Garner was hampered early this season by a severely sprained ankle suffered in the preseason.

Tim Tebow had no real shot at playing against the New England Patriots. The New York Jets' backup quarterback has two broken ribs, and coach Rex Ryan insisted Tebow still could've played, but he had no intention of putting him on the field Thursday night unless it was an emergency. Apparently, a 49-19 blowout didn't qualify. The Jets found out 2 days before the game that Tebow's sore ribs were actually fractured when results from an MRI exam and CT scan were released. Tebow was active for the game, but Ryan kept him on the sideline.

There is no exact timetable for his return, but the team hopes to have Wentz back "before the end of the preseason. " Wentz felt discomfort and soreness early in practice on Saturday. He did not participate in team drills, watching practice in uniform while the Eagles used their other three quarterbacks. He underwent a CT scan Saturday afternoon, when the injury was discovered. Wentz hurt his ribs when he was hit there by Buccaneers linebacker Micah Awe on his second-to-last play in the fourth quarter.

When we think of beef short ribs, what generally comes to mind is the large boneless variety served braised in restaurants, or the crosscut ribs with three or four small pieces of bone in them that are found on supermarket shelves and in butcher display cases. But a mouthwatering photo of beef ribs on the cover of a barbecue cookbook recently brought back memories of the monstrous rack of Montreal-style smoked short ribs my party ordered at Abe Fisher, and the dinosaur bone I polished off at Fette Sau. As the Fourth of July approached, with a long weekend for a cooking project, I began my short ribs research for that very cut: I discovered that the most desirable cut for smoking (and the cut served at Abe Fisher and Fette Sau)

Since a change in the kitchen early this year at SouthGate, new chef David Feola has been trying to coax the menu at this Korean-theme gastropub at 18th and Lombard a little farther away from the deep fryer. Wing fans shouldn't fret. The crackly crisp and meaty birds slicked in sweet and spicy sauces here aren't going anywhere. But there's definitely been a push toward some more interesting dishes from the longtime former Vernick sous-chef. A seared snapper over jalapeño-edamame puree is one example.

Charles H. Gray, 85, of Mount Airy, a biology teacher and owner of the Rib Crib, a barbecue spot in Germantown that became a Philadelphia landmark, died Wednesday, May 6, at Einstein Medical Center after a series of strokes. Since opening the restaurant 47 years ago, Mr. Gray had played host to such figures as former President Bill Clinton, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, the actors Denzel Washington and Tom Hanks, and the singer Patti LaBelle. Neither they nor the locals who lined up on the sidewalk outside the restaurant at 6333 Germantown Ave. could get enough of his sizzling-hot baby back ribs with homemade sauce - or of Mr. Gray.

Struggling through problems attendant to starting a new business - such as lack of money - Charles finally realized his vision.
