With PBS celebrating the life of Rod Serling tonight, maybe you'll want to see some full-length examples of what the man could do. You have two possibilities, neither is on local TV. But if you have cable or a good, strong antenna* "National Geographic Special" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- For those who love the tornado in "The Wizard of Oz" comes "Cyclone," an hourlong look at big winds, including footage of a meteorologist calmly narrating film of Hurricane Andrew destroying his own house.

REGINA, Saskatchewan -- The Baltimore Stallions who walked on to windy, Taylor Field yesterday were in many ways the same team that lost to the Calgary Stampeders, 29-15, three months ago.Then again, no, they weren't. Baltimore was a tired, banged-up team in August. Tracy Ham could barely walk, having just suffered a sprained ankle four days earlier against Edmonton. Free safety Lester Smith had been lost for the season. Baltimore was playing its third game in nine days.But the most telling difference coming into the Grey Cup could be found on the Stallions' offensive line.

Maybe the Calgary Stampeders are not invincible after all.Granted, the Stampeders (13-1) remain the class of the Canadian Football League, with the Northern Division championship nearly in the bag. Their offense barely has missed a beat since quarterback Jeff Garcia took over seven weeks ago for Doug Flutie, whose season ended last month with elbow surgery. They are still on track to win 17 regular-season games, which never has been done in the CFL.Lately, though, Calgary's armor has sustained a few dents.
