The first time I met Artie Donovan, I got all of it - a big serving of his affable nature, his way of taking genuine interest in a complete stranger, a dose of his amazing memory and his way of connecting life experiences with the food and drink that accompanied them. This was 25 years ago. I was supposed to interview Hall of Famer Donovan, but he started off with questions for me instead. He recognized my New England accent. "Where are you from?" he asked. When I told him my native state was Massachusetts, he wanted to know what town.

All the anguish is over. The 12-season wait, replete with pain and frustration, has ended. Baltimore is in its rightful position, a member of the National Football League, and today will historically return a luster it never should have lost. It was a major robbery, a crime against common decency that went unpunished . . . a night of terror when the public was stripped of what it believed was a treasured keepsake.The Colts, just like that, were gone. Date of infamy: March 28, 1984. On every anniversary of the deed, a handful of fans would congregate in front of Memorial Stadium to light a blue candle and sing the team's fight song.

GERMANTOWN - Defense has long been the salvation of the Casa Mia Bays' under-15 boys team. In the second game of group play in the U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships yesterday, it was the offense's turn to perform a rescue operation. Left halfback Stephen Romeo (Century), who had a nifty assist earlier in the second half, headed home a perfect cross from Drew Yates in the 80th minute to give the Bays a 2-2 draw against the Irvine (Calif.) Strikers at the Maryland SoccerPlex. Casa Mia is 1-0-1, with its final game in the preliminary round set for 5:30 p.m. today against St. Louis-based Lou Fusz.

Selling football tickets for a team that doesn't yet exist is nothing new for Baltimore.Baltimore was required to sell 15,000 season tickets before the Dallas Texans were allowed to move here in 1953. The tickets were sold in four weeks -- two weeks less than the maximum established by the NFL commissioner -- and the team moved here and changed its name to the Colts.And city leaders, incensed with the 1984 departure of the Colts to Indianapolis, announced a season-ticket drive that year to try to convince the NFL that there were football fans here, even though many of them had soured on the Colts.
