ATLANTA -- With respect to age, Dick Vermeil is proving most emphatically that the game hasn't passed him by. Such a demeaning allegation insinuated his ability had gone out of style and the sidelines were no place for a man old enough to be the grandfather of his players. As it is, he has 10 of his own grandchildren, maybe a record for a competing Super Bowl coach. The success of the St. Louis Rams (nee Los Angeles Rams, nee Cleveland Rams) belies what the critics were saying when he was hired three years ago. Just another recycled football coach past his prime, a figurehead taking up space.

We want the RamsNothing against Jim Speros and the great job he has done in DTC fighting for the CFL Colts name and bringing pro football back to Baltimore, but after attending two CFL games I still walked away from 33rd Street feeling empty of the good old feelings of the yesteryear NFL Colts.I want the NFL back in Baltimore even if they don't want us.Some friends and I who feel the same way have started a "Write To the Rams Campaign" in hopes it will show Los Angeles Rams owner Georgia Frontiere that Baltimore will sincerely support her if she moves here.

It was appropriate that the day after Baltimore was knocked out of the NFL expansion race, the Friends of the Performing Arts announced they'll be raising funds to build a $60 million performing arts center in the Mount Royal cultural district.If they're looking for contributions, they should start in Bethesda, where they could speak to that well-known Maryland patron of the arts, Paul Tagliabue.It was Tagliabue who suggested Tuesday that cities could spend their money on museums instead of football stadiums.

Everybody laughed when Peter Angelos sat down to buy the Baltimore Orioles. Can't be done, everybody with brain cells said. Too late in the game, all the savvy insiders said. So Angelos bought himself his baseball team, and naturally everybody today says they believed in him all along.Now he wants to bring a National Football League team to Baltimore. Can't be done, all the wise guys start to say. Been down this road before, they say. But then they remember Angelos and his snatch of the Orioles, and everybody isn't laughing any more.
