AUSTIN, Texas - Tired of outrageous gasoline prices? Maybe you'd be interested in a car that uses about as much electricity as a hair dryer, makes less noise than a bicycle and gets the equivalent of 2,500 miles per gallon. There are a few trade-offs, however. There's no air conditioning, radio or power-window option - in fact, there are no windows at all. The driver's seat not only has no leather, but it also has no padding or upholstery. And if it's cloudy or dark, well, forget about traveling very far. But if the sun is shining, this car can go 65 mph or faster, pretty much forever.

CALGARY, Alberta - The Red Sea was roaring last night as the Stanley Cup Finals returned to Canada for the first time since 1994, and it seemed to render the Tampa Bay Lightning powerless. A crowd of 19,221, mostly draped in Calgary Flames red, packed the Saddledome for a passionate, hard-hitting game in which the Flames took a 2-1 series lead with a 3-0 victory over the Lightning. Chris Simon and Shean Donovan scored second-period goals. Jarome Iginla scored in the third, which, along with an assist and a fight gave him the so-called "Gordie Howe hat trick."

Mr. Schmoke offered up a bushel of crabs against 100 pounds of the tender beef for which Calgary is known.

REGINA, Saskatchewan -- They went through most of their first season without a name, and nearly became the first American team to win a Canadian Football League crown. Soon, the Stallions could be leaving for a new home, yet they plan to make history by bringing the Grey Cup back to Baltimore before they start packing.Today, Baltimore's 12-game winning streak and back-to-back divisional titles mean nothing. Since training camp opened nearly six months ago, the team has said it will judge the 1995 season as a failure unless it ended with a championship victory.

TAMPA, Fla. - So the idea of Calgary vs. Tampa Bay in the Stanley Cup Finals doesn't get your juices flowing? It should. The U.S. television market isn't exactly doing somersaults, but this matchup, which begins in Tampa tomorrow night, has the makings of a fan's dream - two fast teams who think offense first and are allergic to that dreaded trap that often sucks the life out of hockey arenas. Both teams have one style - straight ahead. Their aggressive forechecking creates exciting games because it combines two facets fans love - hard-nosed physical play with heaps of offensive chances.

"Tourists are like Christopher Columbus," Peter Swan said with a smile. "When they leave home, they don't know where they're going; when they get there, they don't know where they are; and when they get home, they don't know where they've been."As a guide for White Mountain Adventures, he was leading our group of ice walkers through snow-filled Johnston Canyon between Banff and Lake Louise in Canada's Alberta province. While we enjoyed his humor, it was his understanding of the outdoors that we really appreciated.

CHICAGO - By going to the Stanley Cup Finals, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Calgary Flames offer evidence that signing high-salaried free agents isn't necessarily the way to go. Both finalists began the season with low-budget payrolls. On the NHL's 30-team salary scale, the Lightning was 21st at $33,535,379 and the Flames were 19th at $35,247,950. And Calgary's figure is somewhat misleading because $7.5 million went to Jarome Iginla. Meanwhile, the Lightning and Flames are classic examples of building a strong core group through the draft and then enhancing the nucleus by making good trades and picking up productive free agents.

WASHINGTON - Peter Bondra had not scored a goal in a Month, and he wanted to be involved last night - but not as involved as he turned out to be. Bondra scored twice and Sergei Gonchar netted the winning goal with 2:04 remaining to give the Washington Capitals a 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames at MCI Center. Though Bondra was happy with his two goals, he was made even happier with Gonchar's. "I was involved in every goal but the last one," said Bondra, who made two mistakes that led directly to Calgary goals.
