PITTSBURGH — In a rivalry defined by big hits, the Ravens knocked themselves out Saturday. A crushing third-down play in the fourth quarter and three third-quarter turnovers by the Ravens in their territory helped the Steelers earn a 31-24 victory in an AFC divisional playoff game at a boisterous Heinz Field. The Steelers advance to their fifth AFC championship game in 10 seasons. They will face the winner of Sunday's Patriots-Jets game. The Ravens are headed home and have only themselves to blame after squandering a 14-point halftime lead.

LAUREL -- Robert Sangster's colt Haymaker, a $150,000 purchase two months ago, won the $150,000 Maryland Juvenile Championship at Laurel Race Course yesterday.Trainer Carlos Garcia said he hadn't planned to run the horse, but changed his mind when Colonel Hill, a strong pre-race favorite, worked out in preparation for the race."We watched him work seven-eighths [of a mile]," Garcia said. "He was drunk [tiring badly] the last part of it, and I said we had to try him."Haymaker, with Marco Castaneda aboard, won over Colonel Hill, the 7-10 choice, by 7 3/4 lengths.

NEW YORK - In his zeal during the post-fight news conference at Madison Square Garden after his brutally efficient, fourth-round knockout of Kali Meehan, Baltimore's Hasim Rahman was moved to use a four-letter word: "Cash." "That's something that would make me feel very happy," Rahman said after his 33rd knockout took his record to 40-5-1, improved his position for demanding a lucrative payday and raised the former world champion's stock in a heavyweight division in need of a star. Meehan was Rahman's fourth straight knockout among five straight wins, earning him $85,000.

Just because trainer Frank Alexander likes Maryland, hi reasons for traveling to Pimlico Race Course today aren't exactly pleasantries and nostalgia.Alexander, a Maryland regular in the 1970s, calls his former home "a great place. We've always been lucky shipping back there." And he's hoping the luck of the Irish will be with his promising 3-year-old, King Mutesa, in the $175,000 Federico Tesio Stakes on the St. Patrick's Day program at Pimlico.King Mutesa, Alexander says, is good enough to take him to the Kentucky Derby for the second straight year.

LAUREL -- The third and last time Haymaker met Colonel Hill, a big buildup resulted in a letdown, as Forry Cow How stormed past both to win the Star de Naskra Stakes.Since that Jan. 1 meeting, Haymaker and Colonel Hill have won impressively, and both have trained well. They're the likely favorites in a field of nine 3-year-olds in today's $50,000-added Private Terms Stakes at Laurel Race Course.The Private Terms is a prelude to Maryland's only significant Triple Crown prep -- the $175,000 Tesio Stakes two weeks later at Pimlico Race Course.

LAUREL -- Neither side is admitting bad blood, but there is more at stake in today's rubber match between Haymaker and Colonel Hill than just the $60,000 purse.The newly turned 3-year-olds square off in the Star de Naskra Stakes at Laurel Race Course. In two prior clashes restricted to Maryland-breds, each colt romped to equally impressive victories."This is what racing is all about," said Haymaker's trainer, Carlos Garcia.For Garcia, the Star de Naskra is something of a grudge match. Colonel Hill, owned by Victor DiVivo, is a half-brother to Pretty Flame, who drew considerable attention when winning her only career start; she won that race last March by 18 lengths.

/TC LAUREL -- Haymaker further distanced himself from his local rivals with a convincing victory in the $54,950 Private Terms Stakes over a muddy track at Laurel Race Course yesterday.The colt led at every point in the 1 1/16-mile race, finishing nearly two lengths ahead of Colonel Hill and giving winning trainer Carlos Garcia a chance to get in a jab at the losers."Sergeant Hill, he ran good, huh?" said Garcia, giving Colonel Hill an intentional demotion in rank. "I said [Saturday] if he couldn't beat me in this race, when I'm giving him 10 pounds, when's he going to beat me?

LAUREL -- Binnie and Ed Houghton had more important concerns in recent days than rivalries and horse races.So when Forry Cow How, carrying the Houghtons' Buckingham Farm silks, rallied to win the $60,000 Star de Naskra Stakes at Laurel Race Course yesterday, their elation was well-founded -- for more than one reason.Jen Houghton, 24-year-old daughter of the Chestertown couple, was injured seriously in a riding accident Dec. 24 at Fair Hill Race Course. "She broke three vertebrae, and we were told there was a chance she might be paralyzed," said Binnie.

Symbolism oft-times is every bit as important as reality in the political world.This past week, we saw two symbols displayed by Maryland's governor-elect and its almost-governor-elect that illustrate how easy it is for a damaging impression to sear its way into public memory.Symbol No. 1 was put on display by the 5,405-vote governor-elect, Parris N. Glendening. The headlines said it all: ''Glendening Picks Wife As a Transition Chief'' (Washington Post); ''Glendening's wife to lead transition'' (The Sun)
