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.

We all know what's wrong with football. The game's ills are reported almost ad nauseam.John Bridgers, who was back in Baltimore this week, has written a book entitled "What's Right with Football." It will be published in the spring by Eason Press in Austin, Texas.Bridgers spent 28 years coaching football. In the late 1950s, he was an assistant to the Colts' Weeb Ewbank. For four years before that, he coached Johns Hopkins. Later he coached with Paul Dietzel and Chuck Noll.Counting his time as athletic director at Baylor, Florida and New Mexico, Bridgers worked in football 42 years -- plus the four he played at Auburn.

South Carroll senior running back Matt Greene has helped the Cavaliers win two consecutive games after starting the season with two losses. Greene rushed for 45 yards nine days ago in a 19-7 victory over Winters Mill, even though he felt the effects of an ankle sprain that caused him to miss a game. What's the secret of an outstanding running back? I guess speed is the key in high school and also strength. I ran my 40 in 4.5 [seconds]. What was your biggest run in high school? Probably against Milford Mill last year in the state 2A semifinals.

How boring is broadcast TV tonight? So boring that the only thing worth listing, much less watching, is the premiere of Fox's preseason NFL coverage. Cable, though, is well-stocked with alternatives.* "NFL Football" (8 p.m.-conclusion, WBFF, Channel 45) -- John Madden and Pat Summerall are used to working together on the road, but beginning tonight they're heading in a new direction on an uncharted highway. This exhibition game between the Denver Broncos and the San Francisco 49ers may not be very important -- but as an exhibition of how Fox covers football, it's the most intriguing TV offering of the evening.

Call them the "CFL Colts." The "Baltimore CFL Colts."That is owner Jim Speros' compromise choice for the name of his Canadian Football League expansion team, which will begin play here this summer.The announcement was made at a downtown hotel this morning. Also unveiled was the team logo, which is a chess-like figure of a horse's head.The decision to identify the new team as the "CFL Colts" is a concession to a threatened lawsuit by the National Football League for an alleged trademark infringement.

A sickbed dose of NFL wild card playoff games over the weekend (on ABC and CBS) helped clarify why. Doesn't anybody else have the following concerns?Aren't there now actually more minutes of commercials than game? Football is a stop-and-go affair to begin with, given all those huddles and time outs, but it is obvious when on-field breaks are called because of pending TV ad breaks. In one game (we forget which)
