TOMORROW

WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB DOG SHOW

Pampered, overpriced dogs stinking up the floor at Madison Square Garden . . . oh wait, that's a Knicks game. Best in Show favorites include a Keeshond who was overheard telling his trainer to just "Throw Me The Damn Frisbee." [USA, 8]


FRIDAY

MCDONALD'S NBA ALL-STAR CELEBRITY GAME

"Celebrity" participants include Ryan Cabrera, Mark McGrath, and "Blind Date" host Roger Lodge. Apparently there's a new rule dictating that one white guy must touch the ball per every possession. [ESPN, 7]

SPORTSCENTURY: CHARLES BARKLEY

The Round Mound of Rebound is flirting with the idea of running for office in Alabama. Sources say the doughy Barkley chose to be a Republican because he's one of the Red States. [ESPN CLASSIC, 8]

SUNDAY

MIRACLE ON ICE -- 25th ANNIVERSARY

Celebrate the United States' second-greatest upset over the Russians. The first being Rocky Balboa's victory over Ivan Drago whom, incidentally, Jose Canseco claims to have personally injected with steroids. [ESPN, 8:30]

NBA ALL-STAR GAME

TNT assures us that they know drama, so expect the greatest East versus West battle since the Eastern Conference-Western Conference rap wars pitted Allen Iverson's "Non-Fiction" against Shaquille O'Neal's "Shaq Fu: Da Return." [TNT, 8]
