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.

If you started the year with a resolution to get into shape, you might want to skip this article and move on to something on the sports page that will inspire you to exercise. If, however, your quest for a healthy lifestyle has been so successful that you're planning to reward yourself with a little treat, I have just two words for you - Fat Jack's. No, that's not an accusation or a warning to stay on your diet, it's a fabulous rib and blues joint on Route 73 in West Berlin that will have you shouting "Yee ha, y'all" with the first bite.

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.
