Widely considered a creation of the Pakistani government, Lashkar-e-Taiba was banned by Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf and declared a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S in 2001, but experts say it remains a sophisticated, well-trained and financed group. Translated to "Army of the Pure," Lashkar was formed in 1990 as the armed wing of a Pakistani-based religious organization. The fighters initially fought alongside the Afghanistan mujahadeen but their focus and operations quickly turned to the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir, long a flash point between India and Pakistan.

IT MAY NOT have been the wisest thing for Maryland to have scheduled 21 1/2 -point favorite Michigan, which the Terps visit Saturday, but it's hard to beat as a money maker. Maryland will take home $320,000 from Ann Arbor. The series, which ends with this game, was arranged when Carl James was Maryland's athletic director -- and he has been gone for 11 years. The Wolverines won't be back on the schedule for a while. Maryland already has some opponents signed for 2007.* New York Giants defensive coordinator Bill Belichick, son of longtime Navy coaching aide Steve Belichick, is still taking bows for the job his unit did last Sunday in holding Miami and dangerous Dan Marino without a touchdown, winning 20-3.

Opening Day brought lots of excitement to Oriole Park at Camden Yards on and off the field. It seemed as if most people on the sky box level spent their time box hopping or wandering the halls to see and be seen.I heard an amusing incident happened in the box of the Orioles owner Eli Jacobs. As many people know, Mr. Jacobs considers himself a private person and prefers that guests to his box be invited. So you can imagine the excitement when a poor unsuspecting mouse was spotted creeping around Jacobs' box. Ushers were on their hands and knees trying to find it, but it seems the four-legged critter knew he wasn't welcome and took off for home.

Here's how Bruce H. Hoffman, executive director of the Maryland Stadium Authority, describes his contribution to the construction of Oriole Park at Camden Yards:"The one thing I did was assemble a great team," he said. "I got them all the answers they needed promptly, and the team did all the work."But the burden of bringing the project in successfully was his alone. Gov. William Donald Schaefer made that clear in late 1988 when Hoffman was recruited for the $125,000 job.Hoffman, 44, took over just as the first stadium designs were under way, and soon was dealing with everyone from construction workers to corporate leaders.
