Question: I'm a single guy who has harbored feelings for one of my best friends for a number of years. I've never said anything to her since I don't want to put her in the position of having to reject me, and I know in my head it wouldn't work out due to a number of lifestyle and religious hurdles. She has begun seeing someone. How can I take a break from our friendship without ruining it? ?Answer:Best to lie low for a bit without explaining, since you want to maintain the friendship but you also don't care to play audience to her romance.

Yvan Attal's first film as a director, 2001's My Wife Is an Actress, was an altogether charming autobiographical comedy about dual-career couples, jealousy, fame, and the daunting prospect of long-term commitment. Happily Ever After, which likewise stars Attal and his real-life wife, Charlotte Gainsbourg, can be seen as a sort of sequel: The marrieds (he's a car salesman instead of a sports journalist, she's a real estate agent and not a famous thespian) live in comfortable chaos, with a cute kid, conflicting schedules, and not much passion in the bedroom.

Just a few years ago, Jessica Hecht wouldn't have expected to be on one TV series, let alone back-to-back ratings hits. But, in an era where actors cross-pollinate each other's shows with an ease that would make honeybees jealous, Hecht finds herself playing both Susan on Friends and Janeane on The Single Guy. Until recently, Hecht, 30, was a New York stage actress who performed experimental theater before black-turtleneck-clad audiences....

READING Bill Conlin's diatribe about "Joe Must Go" (Oct. 30), due to his recent losing record, methinks Mr. Conlin has gotten a bit too much of Florida sun. He lives in South Florida now, doesn't he? The whole Sunshine State is football addled. Winning is everything, studies are treated as an afterthought, football teams may as well be pro teams bearing the school colors. A player can go a whole year without attending class, and the state legislature can step in and influence football matters.

With "Friends" like these, who needs a scriptwriter? In the last few months, sitcoms mirroring the basic setup of NBC's megahit have popped up. The result are new helpings of those smart-looking, sharp-shooting young adults who comfort one another in their dealings with life, love and the pursuit of the perfect haircut. We've had to stomach "Can't Hurry Love," "The Crew," "The Single Guy," "Partners," "First Time Out" and "The Drew Carey Show" as they've tried the "Friends" formula with varying degrees of success.

Nick Grossmann, arguably the Flyers' top defenseman, probably will miss the remainder of the regular season because of concussion issues, general manager Paul Holmgren said after Wednesday's optional practice in Voorhees. Earlier in the day, Holmgren was hopeful that Grossmann might return Saturday in Buffalo. But that changed after Grossmann visited a specialist in Pittsburgh and the GM received a report. "He has vestibular issues," Holmgren said, which means that Grossmann is having problems with his balance.

The St. Joseph's Hawks stepped into a cauldron of emotion last night. The Smith Center, a tight gym whose fans are so close to the floor opposing players can almost feel them breathing down their necks, was loud and packed to see George Washington establish its superiority in the Atlantic Ten Conference against its primary challenger in the Colonials' final home game of the season. Yet it was St. Joseph's that seemed oblivious to the din and made a serious argument that it is boss of the conference, knocking off GW, 71-56, in a game that was played at a high level.

FRIENDS. Channel 10, 8 tonight. Jennifer Aniston has a message for the technophobes of America: Learn to work your VCR. When the second-season premiere of "Friends" runs in its new time slot at 8 tonight, the telegenic klatch of single New Yorkers will face their first big test since becoming TV's dimpled darlings. "We're moving to a new time, and anything can happen," Aniston said. "There's nothing we can do. Hopefully, if you have an audience that's faithful and loves you, then they'll come and see you. A lot of people have said that they're not home at 8 o'clock.

The question was whether Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg considered transferring after head coach Bill O'Brien resigned to join the NFL's Houston Texans. Hackenberg's answer was succinct. "I didn't," he said. To the relief of Nittany Nation, Hackenberg stayed in the fold after losing the two men - O'Brien and quarterbacks coach Charlie Fisher - who played major roles in his development as the No. 1 true freshman quarterback in the country in 2013, when he passed for 2,955 yards and 20 touchdowns.

DEAR ABBY: I work in a professional office where nearly all my co-workers are married and live rather uneventful lifestyles. I was divorced a few years ago and have not remarried. I have dated a lot of women, and it has become an issue with my co-workers. They insist on hearing about the dates I go on and ask for the details of what took place, and I usually oblige them. Lately, there has been more and more gossip about my so-called "wild lifestyle," and I have become the talk of the office.

It is a little unusual for your typical football player to crave sushi. Raw tuna, yellowtail, eel and octopus as weekly staples? Usually, it's steak and potatoes. But Mark Simoneau isn't your typical football player, not in size or in palate. The newly married 26-year-old linebacker from a small Kansas town has emerged as one of the Eagles' defensive leaders, starting every game this season at middle linebacker. Think the Birds' starter last season, Levon Kirkland, who hovered around 300 pounds, frequented a little sushi place in Cherry Hill once a week?

It takes a while for most bachelors to wake up to the fact that they'll actually have to make a home for themselves - "home" as in matching flatware, something other than just a sofa in the living room and "investment" bed linens. The uninitiated can easily be overwhelmed. So many choices - furniture styles, wall colors, coordinated accessories. It's enough to make even a workaholic's head spin. But we found two busy single guys who took on the task, and have done well for themselves.
