It isn't Mary Stuart Masterson's portrayal of the title character - Maggie, "the cat" - that heats up the Kennedy Center's simmering production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. It's George Grizzard's unwaveringly powerful depiction of Big Daddy. And yet, one of the most revelatory aspects of this latest offering in the "Tennessee Williams Explored" festival is the strong, underlying similarity between this seemingly dissimilar father and daughter-in-law. Director Mark Lamos' insightful production leaves no doubt about why Maggie and Big Daddy admire each other.

ANNAPOLIS -- Navy quarterback Alton Grizzard was cleared to play in Saturday's game against Akron, but coach George Chaump said he doesn't know how much Grizzard will play, or whether he even will start.Chaump said yesterday he is not sure whether Grizzard -- who holds the school record for total offense -- or Gary McIntosh will start, as Navy (2-3) tries to even its record in its first meeting against the Zips (3-2-1).Grizzard, who started the first four games, missed last week's 24-7 loss at Air Force after he suffered a bruised lung the previous week.

WASHINGTON - The day after the NBA draft has the feel of the day after Christmas, as 29 clubs try to figure out just what arrived under the tree the day before. In that vein, Washington Wizards coach Doug Collins looked like the proverbial kid taking his new sled out for a post-holiday test run yesterday, appraising the three gifts, guard Juan Dixon and forwards Jared Jeffries and Rod Grizzard, the team picked up in Wednesday's draft. "We feel like we have three first-round choices sitting up here that all bring something a little bit different," said Collins.

ANNAPOLIS -- Just call it the quarterback controversy that never materialized.Even though Navy quarterback Alton Grizzard committed a career-high six turnovers in last week's 28-17 loss to Boston College, the senior was endorsed yesterday by coach George Chaump, who namedhim the starter for Saturday's game against Air Force.It was a frustrated Chaump who suggested changes after watching Grizzard throw five passes that were intercepted and fumble once -- with three of the turnovers resulting in Boston College touchdowns.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Navy quarterback Alton Grizzard, who committed six turnovers in last week's loss to Boston College, apparently sustained a bruised right lung in that game and will miss today's contest here against Air Force.With Grizzard out at least until Wednesday, the Midshipmen will be led by backup quarterback Gary McIntosh, who quit the team before the start of the season after not being named the starter. McIntosh, who was reinstated after the second game, last started a year ago in a 14-10 loss to The Citadel.

Alton Grizzard carried the quarterback baton for Navy for most of four seasons. Now he is handing it off. But to whom?In the wake of the Middies' 30-20 defeat in the 100th anniversary of the Army-Navy game Saturday in Philadelphia, Grizzard leaves a trail of records and a batch of potential successors.Brian Ellis, a sophomore from Morrow, Ga., is one. He was listed in the press guide as Navy's "quarterback of the future," but he didn't throw a pass all season.Another is Jason Van Matre, a plebe from Pensacola, Fla. Van Matre was the quarterback and most valuable player last year for the unbeaten Naval Academy Preparatory School team in Newport, R.I., rushing for a school-record 1,207 yards.

It was a familiar moment for Ed and Bonnie O'Neill. Their daughter, Kerryn, a graceful long-distance runner, had once again won her race, and they were rushing toward the track to embrace her.What stopped them was the sight of Kerry, a girl of uncommon beauty, already joined at the finish line by a handsome young man."I had this feeling that we should let her alone," Mrs. O'Neill recalled last week, sitting in her daughter's tiny, childhood bedroom in Kingston, Pa. "You could just feel it."

We call games like Navy's 16-14 loss to Army last Saturday "heartbreakers." After an exhilarating fourth-quarter comeback, the game comes down to a fresh-faced plebe and the climactic field goal he has always dreamed of kicking. Eighteen yards from victory and . . . he misses.The coach's face crumples. The kicker must be consoled. A devastating loss. A heartbreaker.But we use the word too carelessly. Today, the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis only wishes it were grieving over a football loss.

There have been other blue Mondays in December at the Naval Academy, days when the Midshipmen were still licking their wounds after a loss to Army, or when a hard-working football coach -- a Gary Tranquill or an Eliot Uzelac in recent years -- was fired and sent packing.There has never been one like yesterday, though. The place was literally bathed in gloom.The academy was 24 hours removed from a memorial service for Alton Grizzard, who was quarterback and co-captain of the Navy team three years ago.Lt.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- "When we were behind, I thought of him," Navy's senior leader, Javier Zuluaga, said yesterday, referring to former teammate Alton Grizzard, who, with two other Naval Academy graduates, had been killed in a double-murder-suicide three days before.The Mids had dedicated their annual game against Army to the quarterback, and, in losing, they certainly couldn't be faulted in the effort put forth on behalf of their comrade while losing to the Cadets, 16-14."What I was thinking all the time we were behind was what a competitor 'Griz' was," Zuluaga continued.
