TORONTO -- Barring an upset, or the owners of the Canadian Football League voting against it, the city of Baltimore is the favorite to host the 1996 Grey Cup Championship, a Canadian replica of what the National Football League refers to as the Super Bowl.Commissioner Larry Smith, the progressive leader of the CFL, the man who brought expansion to the United States, said Baltimore is one of three cities listed for final consideration.Smith said taking the Grey Cup, which has been played for 81 years to determine the Canadian champion, to the U.S. is "an ultimate objective, sooner as opposed to later."

The verdict is in: Sunday's Grey Cup from Vancouver, British Columbia, will not be televised on Channel 2.WMAR-TV had sought to pick up the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.'s feed of the game between the CFLs and the B.C. Lions, but it was blocked from doing so yesterday when ESPN, the United States' broadcast rights holder, stepped in.The game will air live on ESPN2, the year-old all-sports network, which is not a part of the city's United Artists cable system.However, ESPN and United Artists reached agreement earlier this week to place the game feed on Channel 41, which they did two weeks ago for the Eastern Division semifinal.

Now, the real camp begins.For five days, the practice fields at Towson State had been teeming with rookies trying to get noticed, looking to earn a limited number of available jobs with the Baltimore Football Club. Yesterday, the team's veterans reported to camp to begin preparations for what they envision as a return to the Canadian Football League's Grey Cup game.Returning fullback Peter Tuipulotu, looking fit at 5 feet 11, 215 pounds, has plenty of football to look forward to, although he still thinks about the way Baltimore's memorable inaugural season ended in November -- with a 26-23 loss in the Grey Cup to the B.C. Lions on a field goal with no time left.

A radio talk show in Toronto had me on last week to talk about the CFLs' drive for the Grey Cup. First question: "So, are people going crazy?" My answer: Um, well, not really. Maybe that was wrong, but I don't think so.Any such conclusion about fan support is going to be based on perception and anecdotal evidence, of course, there being little hard data to employ other than attendance figures, which can be flimsy. But here are the signs that tell you that, as much of a kick as the CFLs have been, and as well as they have drawn at Memorial Stadium, Grey Cup mania hasn't quite overtaken our fair burg:* Our mayor hasn't made one of those knuckleheaded, publicity-hunting bets with the mayor of Winnipeg in advance of tomorrow's division title game.

Jim Speros' quest to bring a Grey Cup to Baltimore was put on hold yesterday when the Canadian Football League's board of governors postponed a decision on the 1996 championship game site.The league announced a telephonic vote would be taken no later than Aug. 1.Undeterred by the delay, Speros, the owner of Baltimore's CFL expansion team, said the city remains the favorite in its bid to be the first non-Canadian host to the Grey Cup."I think this favors Baltimore more so than anything," he said after the one-day meeting in Hamilton, Ontario, where representatives from Baltimore, Hamilton, Ontario, and Edmonton, Alberta, made 30-minute presentations.

Emblazoned on Stevie Baggs' left trapezius in cursive letters is a distinctive tattoo: "Shakespeare. " It's safe to say there aren't many NFL linebackers nicknamed after the English poet and playwright. Signed by the Ravens over the weekend to a one-year, $390,000 contract with no signing bonus, the former Canadian Football League standout has proudly worn the sobriquet ever since his college days at Bethune-Cookman. "My fellow linebackers told me, 'Bro, you're making so many plays, I'm just going to call you Shakespeare,'" Baggs said.

Former Baltimore Stallion coach Don Matthews, one of the winningest coaches in the history of the Canadian Football League, has been elected to the CFL Hall of Fame, the league announced Friday. Matthews won 231 games and 5 Grey Cups during his 22-year career, as well as five more as an assistant coach. In 1995, he guided the Stallions to the Grey Cup during the league's brief expansion into the United States, which marked the only time a team outside of Canada won the league championship.

Already this season, Jeff Garcia has reaffirmed the genius of Bill Walsh, reinvented the San Francisco 49ers as Super Bowl contenders and rendered Doug Flutie the other quarterback from the Canadian Football League. Not bad for a quarterback no one wanted out of San Jose State in 1994, and who was barely acknowledged by the NFL after a Grey Cup championship four years later. On Sunday in St. Louis, Garcia will attempt to take his unlikely success story to a new high when he tries to out-duel Kurt Warner and the Rams.

They came out of nowhere - a nameless, patchwork expansion team peopled by rookies, free agents and vagabonds roaming the netherworld between college and pro football. The mix proved magical. In their short, two-year fling in the Canadian Football League, the Baltimore Stallions won a championship - five years ago today. In the process, they captured the hearts of a cadre of fans eager to embrace any form of surrogate Colts. The Stallions also aggravated an entire nation of flannel-wearing, ice-fishing, Mountie-loving denizens vexed by the success of these blue-and-silver upstarts from south of their border.

No football player has won a Grey Cup and a Super Bowl representing the same city. Until O.J. Brigance signed with the Ravens, no player ever had a chance. Brigance, a standout linebacker for the 1995 Grey Cup champion Baltimore Stallions, said his familiarity with the city wasn't the "be-all, end-all" in his decision to join the Ravens as an unrestricted free agent. Likewise, Ravens vice president of player personnel Ozzie Newsome wasn't acting out of sentiment when he signed Brigance to compete for the sixth linebacker position and be a "significant contributor" on special teams.

The question about the Baltimore CFLs is no longer whether they are capable of winning the Grey Cup as an expansion franchise.They are.They quashed any lingering doubts in the first half of yesterday's division showdown at Memorial Stadium, running up a startling 37-0 lead on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, a team that has played in four of the past six Cups, winning two."It was fair for there to be speculation about whether a first-year team could go all the way," rush end O. J. Brigance said, "but I'm sure no one is speculating anymore."
