At last year's Virgin Mobile FreeFest, Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge was cracking obscene jokes and copping a teenage attitude with his fans and bandmates. Now, DeLonge is on tour with Angels & Airwaves, a band that pairs atmospheric alt-rock songs with metaphysical symbolism. For DeLonge, it's a sobering about-face. Angels & Airwaves gave away its latest album, "Love," for free, and shot a feature film that could hit theaters later this year. On Monday, Angels & Airwaves will be at Rams Head Live.

He also told jurors he feared his mother and that his deep anger might eventually cause him to kill someone.

Jason Aaron DeLong suffers from three mental disorders and a neurological defect that would have made planning his mother's murder impossible, a psychiatrist for the defense said yesterday.Rather, the killing was a release of the lifelong rage Mr. DeLong felt toward Cathryn Brace Farrar because she neglected him and abused him physically and sexually, said Ellen McDaniel, a psychiatrist who practices in Towson."There was this outpouring of tremendous fear and rage beyond his control," Dr. McDaniel said.

Doory called Mr. DeLong a "cunning" thief and criminal who decided, along with "the purple-haired girl of his dreams," to kill Cathryn Brace Farrar and George William Wahl so they could steal her car and money.

H-back Greg DeLong may not play in tonight's preseason game against the New York Jets, but his pride seems to be hurting more than his ankle. During a walkthrough as part of the kickoff return scout team Thursday, DeLong stepped on a teammate's foot and rolled his left ankle. He did some walking off to the side yesterday and did not practice. "If you're going to get hurt, you want it to sound kind of manly," DeLong said. "This here is not manly at all." If DeLong is sidelined, the Ravens will likely work out of more three-wide-out formations.

CINCINNATI -- Justin Armour and Qadry Ismail had been the mainstays in the Ravens' often-sputtering passing game before yesterday. The other guys picked a fine time to show up in yesterday's 34-31 victory over the Bengals. Wide receiver Patrick Johnson resurfaced after an extended absence to have the best game of his career. Wide receiver Billy Davis, whose football life had been reduced primarily to special teams work after joining the Ravens this year, produced the team's biggest play from scrimmage in his best performance of 1999.

In a perfect world, at least as far as the Ravens' incarnation of the West Coast offense is concerned, the tight end would play an integral role.But, as the quarterbacks and wide receivers have come up short so far in coach Brian Billick's offense, the production of the tight ends in the passing game has been just this side of nonexistent."

Who are those guys?Tight end Lovett Purnell spent two years toiling in the wide shadow of New England Pro Bowl player Ben Coates. Aaron Pierce, still trying to establish himself as an NFL force after six seasons, is back after walking away from the game for a year. A. J. Ofodile is hoping to make an impact -- finally -- in his third season. Then there's Greg DeLong, the underappreciated veteran who can do several jobs admirably but is no one's idea of a star waiting to happen.One could say the starting tight end position vacated two months ago by Eric Green, now of the New York Jets, is up for grabs.

He also is asking for a reduction of the life sentence he will have to serve once he is treated at the Clifton T. Perkins Hospital Center.
