MINNEAPOLIS - In a biographical fact sheet, Reggie Fowler - who earlier this week announced he had signed an agreement to buy the Minnesota Vikings - declared that he'd played in the Little League World Series, implied he'd earned a business administration degree from the University of Wyoming and said he played for the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals and the Canadian Football League's Calgary Stampeders. Apparently, none of those claims is accurate. Fowler, 46, announced Monday with Vikings owner Red McCombs that he had signed an agreement to buy the team.

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.

CALGARY, Alberta -- Offensive tackle Shar Pourdanesh sees today's game as a chance for the Stallions to validate themselves as one of the Canadian Football League's elite teams. Running back Mike Pringle wishes Baltimore could have played the game a day earlier, to end the most grueling road trip of the season a little sooner.A crowd approaching a sellout is expected at McMahon Stadium, where Baltimore takes on the Calgary Stampeders in a contest widely being billed as a preview of this year's Grey Cup.For Baltimore, a victory today would buck the odds.
