Father's Day . . . Madonna's $5-million cameo . . . Who's in Charge? As far as we're concerned, the only gorgeous George who matters is George Clooney. But a retired pro wrestler is suing a porn Web site in federal court over the use of the name "Gorgeous George." Randy "Macho Man" Savage says he owns the rights to the moniker "Gorgeous George." According to his suit, Savage licensed the name temporarily to Stephanie Bellars, who used it to create her own wrestling persona a couple of years ago.

The death of Rangers enforcer Derek Boogaard was an accident, due to a toxic mix of alcohol and the powerful painkiller oxycodone. The Hennepin County, Minn., medical examiner announced Boogaard's cause of death Friday, saying it was unclear exactly when the 28-year-old died. Boogaard was found dead in his Minneapolis apartment May 14, five months after he sustained a season-ending concussion with the New York Rangers. The medical examiner said no private data on Boogaard would be released, but a statement his family issued through the National Hockey League Players' Assn.

Manager Whitey Herzog of the St. Louis Cardinals figures that Tito Landrum's divorce in 1986 marked the start of his decline as a ballplayer. Landrum recently signed a minor league contract with the Texas Rangers after having been released by three teams in a span of 10 months--the Cardinals, the Dodgers and the Baltimore Orioles. Said Herzog of Landrum after the divorce: "Then he became a male model and was worried about the way he looked all the time.

Bad time for a defection. Just at a juncture when the Americans were becoming blood brothers with the Soviets, and just as the Soviets were sitting down to smoke a peace pipe with the Chinese, the last thing the world needed was an international incident, particularly one instigated by some guy who makes his living playing ice hockey. Talk about your cold wars. We could understand a breaking of diplomatic relations between two superpowers over, oh, a spy who has been selling top-secret weapon blueprints, or over another of those FBI agents who gets romanced by a Moscow Mata Hari into turning over his top-secret bureau handbook.

The plan for the men who would be Kings was this: First, skate circles around the crazy Canucks. Next, zip up to Alberta, where the shiny old Stanley Cup has been sitting and rusting for years without so much as a dab of Tarnex, and get rid of the Edmonton Oilers or Calgary Flames. Then, face off against Bobby Hull's former team or Brett Hull's current one. And, finally, win the NHL finals. There.

In a world of few absolutes, TV talk-show host Morton Downey Jr. has given us one. His "Morton Downey, Jr. Sings" is the worst album of the '80s. Absolutely. Oh, there may be a record hidden in some dusty garage in some dark, lonely corner of this great land that is more musically hackneyed and thematically thick-skulled. But there surely hasn't been an album this bad that has been widely distributed in the marketplace.

My big regret is that I never became a professional football player, because maybe then I could have broken into show business. Here in a town full of starving or at least hungry actors, good Hollywood gigs keep going to guys whose only formal training came on football fields on Sunday afternoons, where they learned how to act tough. I am not saying these people can't do good work. I'm just amazed they keep getting these good jobs. Fred Dryer gets his own TV cop show.
