THE MOST memorable trip pro football Hall of Famer Jim Brown made to Baltimore is one local sports fans likely recall with mixed feelings -- it was a Sunday in November 1959 when the Cleveland Browns running back scored five touchdowns against the Baltimore Colts and led his team to a 38-31 victory. Brown will be in Baltimore again Friday night, at the invitation of Michael Johnson, owner of the Heritage Cineplex on Taylor Avenue in Towson. Brown will help kick off a Kwanzaa celebration and pick up a lifetime achievement award, not for football, but for his film career.

But two coin flips dropped Cleveland to sixth in the draft, and the Browns had to "settle" for the Syracuse halfback.It didn't take long for Paul Brown to realize he had a special player. He changed his pass-oriented offense to suit the powerful running back and, one year after finishing 5-7, Cleveland went 9-2-1.

Ozzie Newsome will remain the Ravens' general manager and not become a candidate for the Cleveland Browns' vacancy, Ravens president Dick Cass said yesterday. A Hall of Fame tight end for the Browns, Newsome was the architect of the Ravens' 2000 Super Bowl championship team. He was officially named general manager in 2002, although he had been in charge of personnel decisions for the Ravens since they relocated from Cleveland in 1996. Under his direction, the Ravens have drafted nine Pro Bowl players in nine years and signed such key free agents as Shannon Sharpe, Rod Woodson, Sam Adams and Michael McCrary.

Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan couldn't wait for someone to ask him about stopping running back Jamal Lewis in Cleveland today. "If we were playing Jim Brown right now, I promise you we would stop him. ... Now, Jim Brown is 65 years old right now," Ryan said. "But if we were playing Jim Brown right now, we would stop him. You can write that down." Joking aside, the first meeting between the Ravens and their all-time leading rusher is the biggest matchup today when the Ravens face the Cleveland Browns.

The TV Repairman:"SportsCenter" the other night referred to Walt Dropo as Drop-Oh. . . It was probably to Marv Albert's advantage that Bryant Gumbel took him off the "Today Show" Wednesday. Marv, it seems is always pushing something, in this case his book and a video, and he's on too much.* Jim Brown is right: Too many guys lugging the ball in the NFL go out of bounds when they might be able to make more out of the play.* Best Bet: This weekend's must-see is the Burbank (Calif.)

The new ABC reality TV series "Ball Boys" opens with the motto: "Every great moment in sports leaves something behind. " This network series set in a Baltimore sports memorabilia shop tells the stories of what happens to some of the stuff left behind. That's not a bad premise. Think of it as a jock lover's version of "History Detectives. " But that's not all that's happening in the series, which takes viewers inside Robbie's First Base in Lutherville, where they will meet owners Robbie Davis Sr. and Robbie Davis Jr., as well as workers Lou "Sweet Lou" Brown and Robbie "Shaggy" Reier.

Jim Brown and Sneezer roll into the Cancun Cantina Toy Run at the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds as merely two of more than 5,000 bikers in attendance. But here and at dozens of other public gatherings throughout the year, the pair often steals the show. Brown, 51, arrives this November morning in the customary fashion, with Sneezer, his 9-year-old Jack Russell terrier, strapped to his chest in a harness he has modified. She sports a full set of motorcycle gear as comprehensive as his own: leather chaps, riding goggles and a tiny helmet Brown made out of a soup ladle.

Having missed out on a chance to impress college recruiters at the prestigious Nike Camp due to a scheduling snafu last April, Catonsville's Jaren Maybin is trying to make up for a lost opportunity. He made a big impression in yesterday's 21-0 rout of previously unbeaten Carver in a Class 3A North regional semifinal at Poly. It was an effort rival coach Ron Frierson said "reminded me of [former NFL great] Jim Brown." Maybin rushed for 262 yards on 45 carries and scores of 1, 4 and 28 yards, the latter ending an 11-play, 88-yard drive with 5:20 left to play.

Writer-director James Toback is equally euphoric and enraged over the reaction to French director Jacques Audiard's The Beat That My Heart Skipped, which opened Friday at the Charles Theatre. Euphoric, because Audiard has remade Toback's one-of-a-kind cult movie Fingers (1978) in a way that honors its source with its own verve and originality. Enraged, because some of the new movie's fans, who never got Toback's work, have contended that it improves on Toback's film by making the plot more "realistic."
