MONTREAL -- It's been a hard road for the Spirit this year, almost cruel, considering the 1-17 away mark they took into the Molson Centre yesterday.One more loss might hardly be noticed except that it would douse their barely flickering playoff hopes.The Spirit (11-26) responded to the dire circumstances with a 13-4 win over the Montreal Impact before 5,126."I don't know if it was the biggest win of the year for us," said midfielder Shane Dougherty, who scored the first two Spirit goals, "but it was definitely huge."

Maryland defenseman Mike Bonanni thrives on driving his opponent into the ground. Whether it's a walloping body check or a menacing thwack of his stick, he intends to be the one left standing after the impact.So after flushing out the cuts and taking care of the bruises, Bonanni can kick back and begin countless hours of work for his business and finance courses.That's the life of Bonanni, part-time warrior and full-time graduate student, who's in pursuit of his master's degree in Maryland's MBA program.

St. Paul Cos., the Minnesota property and casualty insurer that acquired USF&G, announced yesterday that it might cut 500 to 600 more jobs by the end of next year, a move that could include some job losses in Baltimore.The reductions were billed as a way to offset the company's falling profits in its commercial insurance business, and would be in addition to 2,000 job cuts already announced when St. Paul Cos. bought USF&G for $3.5 billion in April.Before it was acquired, USF&G employed about 2,500 people at its Mount Washington complex.

All of this talk about Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs playing Sunday against the Houston Texans is pretty funny. But, let's just use some common sense here. If the Ravens somehow lose their minds and put Suggs on the field, do you think it will be for more than five plays? Do you think he would have a significant impact? Now, ask this question: Why would the team put Suggs on the roster Sunday when the Ravens have a bye week coming up? It makes no sense. Suggs might have returned to practice Wednesday, but the Ravens will be very cautious when it comes to putting him on the field.

A consultant is recommending that Anne Arundel County quadruple impact fees for single-family homes and quintuple such fees for townhouses as a way to recoup the county's costs for roads, schools and other services. Since builders pass the one-time fees on to buyers, the increases would add nearly $9,000 to the price of a new single-family home and about $8,000 to the price of a new townhouse. But County Executive Janet S. Owens said yesterday that she doubted the increase would be that high for "pragmatic" reasons.

I write in response to the article ("Gang nicknames get more sinister," July 14) on the increasingly sinister nature of gang names in the city and the impact these names have on criminal defense in the courtroom. The article gives one concrete example of the impact of "sinister" nicknames and then rattles off a list of aliases that are as benign as they come. Zitty? Slinky? Tink? Is Archie or Jughead the mastermind behind this syndicate? Moreover, the last lines of the piece make clear that nicknames do not have an impact in the courtroom.
