It never would have occurred to Jim Barker that on the day he began coaching in a league meant to combine the antics of professional wrestling with football, he would meet a man he'd later hire as his own replacement. It was about 9:30 p.m., and Barker had just finished one of his first meetings as offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Xtreme of the XFL, a league started by World Wrestling Entertainment owner Vince McMahon. Barker walked out of the meeting room and was immediately greeted by Scott Milanovich, a former Maryland star, and Tommy Maddox.

TORONTO -- It's the first Saturday of October, and professional sports have fans in Toronto on cloud nine. Earlier in the week, the Blue Jays' clinching of the American League East brought downtown traffic to a standstill, and on this night the much-awaited opener of the Maple Leafs hockey season has scalpers asking -- and getting -- premium prices.Barely noticed in all the excitement are the Argonauts, Toronto's representative in the Canadian Football League. But some 35,000 fans are at SkyDome this night.

In 1897, when The Sun's city editor scrawled out a memo to a reporter who was about to cover the first public voyage beneath the waters of the Patapsco in inventor Simon Lake's Argonaut, he was direct and to the point:"If Lake succeeds, give him a column. If he fails, he gets an obit," wrote the editor to the reporter who was about to board Lake's strange Jules Verne-like creation that was part submarine and part tractor.Lake, a young, red-headed engineer-inventor, became fascinated with the concept of submarines after reading "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" as a child in New Jersey.

NEW YORK -- David Gerstenhaber is counting on top returns to help investors forget some nasty times.Gerstenhaber, 35, has set out to rebuild his money management firm, Argonaut Capital Management, after a disastrous 1994 that brought his $400 million investment pool down to less than $50 million today.Clients pulled money following a 28 percent loss in the first seven months of 1994. While he wasn't alone losing in markets where the dollar, U.S. and foreign bonds ganged up on many managers, hopes for the young manager were especially high, and many investors fled Gerstenhaber in disappointment.

The Stallions were rested and ready, and the opposition hadn't scored an offensive touchdown in more than a month.Baltimore came into yesterday's game with what looked to be a huge advantage over the reeling Toronto Argonauts. And, the Stallions departed with an even bigger win, scoring on their first four possessions and taking a 41-14 victory before 27,853 at Memorial Stadium.Toronto's defense had been more than respectable, allowing 20 points or fewer in four of its past five games. But the Stallions, given great field position by their special teams and effectively mixing the running of Mike Pringle and the passing of Tracy Ham, raced to a 20-7 lead at halftime.

The first time Mike Pringle touched the ball yesterday, he returned the opening kickoff 67 yards to set up the Stallions' initial scoring drive.It was going to be that kind of day for Pringle -- and the Stallions.He rushed for a season-high 166 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries and finished with 281 all-purpose yards in the Stallions' 41-14 rout of the Toronto Argonauts.Not coincidentally, the Stallions -- who are 11-1 when Pringle rushes for 100 or more yards -- had their best offensive output since a 43-7 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on July 22.The Stallions averaged 16.3 points in their previous four contests.

There are eight Canadian Football League teams, and six of them lost money in 1990. There is a $3 million salary cap per team in the CFL, and the Toronto Argonauts have guaranteed more than that to Raghib "Rocket" Ismail. Montreal, the nation's second-largest market, no longer has a CFL team.Even the luring of Ismail away from the National Football League has soured. When it occurred in April, it was regarded as a huge victory for the league. But the former Notre Dame star has missed all three of Toronto's preseason games because of pulls -- a muscle pull and having four wisdom teeth extracted.
