OXFORD, Ohio - With a blinding sun and a mostly empty Yager Stadium at his back, Ravens coach John Harbaugh peered into a crowd that contained so many people he wanted to thank. To his right were his parents, wife and daughter, along with other members of his extended family. To his left were about 30 of his former teammates at Miami University (Ohio). Straight ahead were a couple of rows of football fans, many either wearing Miami red or Ravens purple. It was exactly how Harbaugh wanted to commemorate a memorable and rewarding weekend.

Four weeks after his concessions deal with ARA fell apart, CFL Colts owner Jim Speros got a check he could take to the bank."This one is a real check," Speros said yesterday, announcing a five-year contract with Fine Host Corporation at a news conference on the playing field at Memorial Stadium. "It goes to the bank. It has a signature on it."On a day when Speros' CFL bank account got a shot in the arm, even he could joke about the failed deal that left him without a concessionaire. On April 18, he was presented a mock check for $1 million by ARA-Martin's.

When Oriole Park at Camden Yards opens in April, baseball fans will be able to buy mixed drinks and take them back to their seats -- a departure from the common practice at Memorial Stadium.The stadium concessionaire, ARA Leisure Services Inc., plans to sell gin and tonics, rum and Cokes and other mixed drinks from four new "deli-bars" located at strategic points in the stadium and the former B&O warehouse next to it."We've tried hard to develop some spaces for the little guy," said Joe Costa, regional general manager for ARA.Mixed drinks will also be available from bartenders in the members-only lounge and stocked refrigerators in the luxury skyboxes at Camden Yards, but ARA wanted to create attractive bars for the ordinary fan who cannot afford a skybox.

Dear Doctor:Considering the quality of food provided by ARA-Martin's through the years, wouldn't it be nice to have some locals have their own booths? This could provide a tremendous variety from folks with a reputation to uphold, thereby guaranteeing quality.I'm sure it could be arranged that ARA received compensation while not having to provide the food. That would be a win for everyone.Sig SeidenmanOwings MillsDear Sig Seidenman:Thank you for your letter, which arrived just before lunch time.

Letters, calls and the roar of the crowd:Jeffrey Tallman, Lubbock, Texas: Your recent column graphically illustrates your ignorance on the gays in the military issue.In the military, personnel can be punished for taking part in "high risk" activities that may cause harm to them or others. Some of these high risk activities include: failing to wear seat belts on base, failing to protect oneself from sunburn, and refusing to get a flu shot.This protects the investment the military has made in its personnel to insure a viable fighting force.

In civilian life, Andrew D. Levy is a Baltimore lawyer who works in an office several blocks from the new downtown ballpark.But there are other days and, for Levy, other roles. Yesterday morning he was rolling his wheelchair through the hallways of the unfinished Baltimore Orioles park, offering suggestions about everything from the height of food-stand counter tops to the gentle pitch of exit ramps.Levy joined a group of about a dozen Orioles fans who looked over the ballpark yesterday as guests of the team and ARA-Martin's, the caterers who feed fans at Memorial Stadium and who will continue next year at the downtown location.
