So I've decided to purchase a World Cup fantasy team. I've always had an inexplicable, if abstract, affection for the planet's pre-eminent soccer tournament. I say inexplicable because I've never been able to sit through an entire soccer match in my life. I have the typical ugly American sentiments about the world's favorite sport. It strikes me as a lot of little guys running semi-aimlessly as they chase a ball around a very big field. Announcers get so excited when they sense even a whiff of a scoring chance.

Diamonds and the Maryland men's soccer team have a lot in common. As coach Sasho Cirovski explains, his team has been forged by pressure, preparation and expectations. Cirovski doesn't compare Maryland to the jewel for just those three reasons, however, but also because he expects his team's final product to be tough and high-quality. “We've worked hard to make ourselves the biggest bull's-eye in college soccer,” he said Tuesday as his team prepared for today's NCAA College Cup semifinal against Georgetown in Hoover, Ala. “I don't mind putting pressure on our team and our players, because we feel that that makes us better.

Maybe it was being unaccustomed to playing a preseason game in the sweltering summer heat. Or the fact that both teams were adjusting their tactics with new coaches. Or, perhaps, it was the reality that more than few soccer games end - in the sport's parlance - nil-nil. A majority of the crowd of 42,763 that came to M&T Bank Stadium Saturday wanted to see Liverpool beat Tottenham. Even the most neutral fans didn't come to sit in the 90-plus degree heat to watch a scoreless draw that saw few scoring chances, most of them coming in the first half.

The circumstances of Andres Escobar's death make it easier for us in this country to distance ourselves from it emotionally, to feel superior. We are not a country in which drug money governs and soccer is a religion. Not one of those countries. Such an outrageous, uncivilized act could never happen here, right?Right?Well, it would be nice to say so and know so.But we can't.Escobar was murdered late Saturday night in Medellin, Colombia, because he had made a mistake in a World Cup game, a mistake that caused his country sporting embarrassment and reportedly cost Colombian drug traffickers millions of dollars in lost bets.

Despite having the Southern Division title wrapped up, and despite coming off their bye week, the Baltimore Stallions should not have much trouble getting up for tomorrow's game against )) the visiting British Columbia Lions. Last year's Grey Cup loss to the Lions, coupled with Baltimore's season-opening, 37-34 loss in Vancouver, should take care of the Stallions' motivation.And no Baltimore player will be more excited about the game than linebacker Ken Benson, who has been activated for the first time this year.

Well, Dulaney senior Meagan Holmes wouldn't try to snow you with that kind of talk, not that she could from Southern California. Her time with the United States' Under-19 women's team this summer and fall has been nothing short of the time of her life. "It's a lot of fun, and I have definitely met a lot of new people.

WASHINGTON -- A year removed from a remarkable run of World Cup success, the U.S. national soccer team is still very hungry. Hungry for success and respect.After beating Nigeria, 3-2, last Sunday at Foxboro, Mass., in their first game of the U.S. Cup '95 tournament, the Americans believe there still are skeptics. So, the U.S. national team feels there is a lot to prove starting again today in a nationally televised game against Mexico at RFK Stadium."After beating Nigeria, we don't want that to be just a fluke and we don't want anybody to think that our showing in the World Cup was a fluke so we want to have a good showing here," midfielder Cobi Jones said after a practice last week.
