Two down, at least one to go. First came Michael Richards, now Jason Alexander on ABC as the second prominent "Seinfeld" alumnus to star in a comedy far beneath his talent. Yet to weigh in is Julia Louis-Dreyfus, whose NBC comedy is scheduled for midseason, and Jerry Seinfeld himself, who'd be foolish to resume weekly sitcomdom given the near impossibility of living up to the brilliantly witty act he'd be following.

ABC has canceled "Bob Patterson"--the second prime-time series featuring a "Seinfeld" alumnus that has failed to survive more than a few weeks. The heavily promoted comedy, starring Jason Alexander as a motivational speaker, was produced by Touchstone Television, which like ABC is a unit of Walt Disney Co. The premiere of "Patterson" received mediocre ratings and was quickly dropped from there.

You've got to be kidding! How can you not list Michigan Stadium in the top 10 and rank the Disneyland version of Michigan Stadium, located in South Bend, first? This cheap knockoff, the design of which was stolen from Ann Arbor, cannot compare with the real thing in size, ambience, or any other measure.

One hundred thirty consecutive 100,000-plus crowds can't be wrong.

"We've talked about Wynne for a couple of weeks in a package deal with Rhoden involved," said Jack McKeon, Padre general manager. "It's up to Pittsburgh now to decide what Pittsburgh wants to do with Rhoden.

If baseball were more like hockey, you'd probably get the final score in your morning paper more often. Aside from a clock to keep the timeless game moving at a more 1990s pace, baseball could do worse than pick three stars of the game as hockey does. In honor of the man who brought hockey to Anaheim and might yet bring stability to Anaheim Stadium, Disney's Michael Eisner--who took in the Angels-Baltimore Orioles game Tuesday--here are the three stars: --The No.

Each day, they dress and work out next to Goose Gossage, Eric Show and Andy Hawkins. So, what is there to separate Jimmy Jones, Bob Patterson, Ray Hayward and Ed Vosberg from Gossage, Show and Hawkins? Try the month of April. That's when Gossage, Show and Hawkins return to San Diego. In the meantime, Jones, Patterson, Hayward and Vosberg return to minor league outposts such as Las Vegas and Beaumont, Tex.

The CAT exercise run described in “Psst, Let’s Tunnel Out of Here” [June 5] is a wonderful idea. In fact, it should be mandatory to keep cats out of neighbors' yards. Bob Patterson Alta Loma What a nice (and useful) article! I've passed it on to a friend who is sending it to birders, professional and amateur, all over the country.
