Orioles third baseman Manny Machado grew up eating chips and salsa. He enjoys the delicious combination at family gatherings, tailgate parties and just when he wants a snack during his off days. Tuesday afternoon, Machado unveiled his own line of “Machado's Salsa,” which is being sold exclusively at Giant grocery stores in the area, as well as online at PLBsports.com. Machado's Salsa comes in both medium and mild flavors. “I'm very humbled by this, for salsa,” Machado said, amid some laughter, at the unveiling event held at the Pikesville Giant.

When Doug Flutie was considering giving up a guaranteed contract in Canada to sign with the Buffalo Bills last year, his wife advised him against doing it."She was telling me all along that, `They're not going to give you that opportunity. They didn't give it to you last time around and they won't give it to you now,' " Flutie said.Shortly after Flutie signed with the Bills, they traded a first-round choice for Rob Johnson and gave him a $25 million contract even though he had started one NFL game.

HAMILTON, Ontario -- Two weeks ago, the Baltimore Stallions' offense was in a funk, having scored just 59 points over a four-game stretch, during which Baltimore absorbed the first two-game losing streak in its two-year history.Nothing a couple of mediocre defenses and running back Mike Pringle couldn't fix. With Saturday's 41-14 victory at Hamilton, the Stallions (8-3) buried the dry month of August by scoring 41 points for the second straight week. They beat Toronto by the same margin last weekend.

If Doug Flutie was the grand opening, Terrance Jones is the acid test.Lured by the return of pro football to Memorial Stadium, a crowd of nearly 40,000 turned out Saturday night to see the Baltimore CFLs play the Calgary Stampeders with Flutie.Minus last week's pomp and circumstance, the CFLs face the Shreveport Pirates this Saturday night in a game that may say more about the Canadian Football League's acceptance here than opening night did.The biggest name on the Shreveport roster is coach Forrest Gregg, a Hall of Fame tackle who was the first man to play and then coach in the Super Bowl.

In a half-season with little rhyme and no reason, the NFL has come back to a basic truth: On any given Sunday, you can be stumped by the results. Already this season, we have seen some logic-defying developments: The Super Bowl champion Ravens have lost to two former patsies, the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns. The Washington Redskins started 0-5 and were outscored 144-32, yet they've come back to win three in a row, including a 35-21 rout of the defending NFC champion New York Giants.

Over the course of a career that spans 17 years, two countries and three professional leagues, Doug Flutie has been a little bit of everything (no short jokes intended), including a phone service pitchman, a drummer in a rock band, a charity fund-raiser and a figure on a cereal box. Finally, it appears that in his first season in San Diego, Flutie may actually get a chance to be just a quarterback. He gets that opportunity in the season opener Sunday against the Washington Redskins. And, for a pleasant change, Flutie is in a city where his height and running ability won't be treated as curiosities and where his presence won't touch off controversy.

Atlanta (1-1) at Carolina (1-1)Time: 1 p.m. Line: Panthers by 6 1/2 . Vs. spread: Falcons 1-1; Panthers 2-0. Series: Tied 5-5. Last meeting: Panthers won, 34-28, on Nov. 11, 1999, at Carolina. Outlook: The Falcons have allowed 70 points in two games, and it probably won't get any better against the Panthers, who look like the second-best team in the NFC West. Carolina has invested heavily in its defensive line, and if the line can mount a decent rush, the Panthers should get to Atlanta QB Chris Chandler.

Roll call for quarterbacks in this month's NFL playoffs doesn't take long, but it does take some introduction. Shaun King is a rookie with a 4-1 record as a starter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Thrust into the job six weeks ago when Trent Dilfer broke his clavicle, King may at least have averted a mutiny by the Bucs' overworked defense. Jon Kitna came to the Seattle Seahawks by way of the Barcelona Dragons and Central Washington Wildcats. In his third NFL season, this one-time project warmed up for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins by throwing 10 interceptions in his past six games.

When the Stallions and Calgary Stampeders meet for the Canadian Football League championship Sunday (5:30 p.m.), ESPN2 analyst Mike Mayock says they'll bring their respective nation's football philosophies to the Grey Cup in Regina, Saskatchewan.Mayock, who will be joined in the booth by play-by-play man Gus Johnson, says the Stallions bring an NFL sensibility to the CFL, in that they feature a tailback, play tough defense and have great special teams.Meanwhile, Calgary, behind freewheeling quarterback Doug Flutie is, in Mayock's opinion, the "prototypical" Canadian team with backs and receivers spreading the field with a wide-open attack.

Who's next, John Unitas? The Ravens have run out of quarterbacks and offensive options, and yesterday they ran out of time in a 13-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills before 68,673 at PSINet Stadium.The script has become familiar. The defense plays well enough to win, the Ravens get some production out of their running game, but little from the passing attack. Yet on a day when the Ravens held the Bills to 249 yards of total offense, intercepted three Doug Flutie passes and knocked down 12 more, the most questionable call of the game was their defensive alignment on a fourth-and-15 from the Ravens' 39-yard line with 2: 36 left in the game.
