Quotable"It seemed every time we had a big play running or passing, the officials wanted to be part of the game. I know them [the officiating crew] pretty well, and once I saw the head guy [Ed Hochuli], I knew it was going to be a questionable day." -- Elvis Grbac, Chiefs quarterback, whose team was called for 13 penalties, eight of them offensive holding."I don't know where the team is right now. We're trying to be positive, but it's so easy to be negative." -- Simeon Rice, Cardinals defensive lineman.

Brian Billick said that a number of scenarios could play out this season at the Ravens' backup quarterback spot. The most likely is that Chris Redman will be the mop-up man, with Randall Cunningham coming in should Elvis Grbac go down with an injury. Redman, a second-year pro who runs the scout team offense and gets the No. 2's practice repetitions, was 8 when Cunningham came into the NFL in 1985. The 16th-year pro is flattered that the Ravens think he can step in with less practice work than afforded a normal backup and understands the need to nurture Redman.

Here's the free-agent thought of the day:What if there's no market for Mickey Tettleton?True, Philadelphia re-signed its own free-agent catcher, Darren Daulton, to a three-year, $6.75 million contract. But that doesn't TC mean Tettleton, a player of comparable value, will command the same deal.In fact, the Orioles' chances of retaining Tettleton appear to be improving every day. A record number of free agents are available, and most clubs seem uncertain of which way to turn. Such inactivity benefits the Orioles; in the case of Tettleton, time is on their side.

A festive crowd flooded the American Visionary Art Museum's sculpture barn. On a sea of bobbing heads sailed a most interesting and creative flotilla of headgear. This was, after all, "The Mad Hatter Party" benefiting Health Education Resource Organization. A gaggle of gigantic butterflies danced about one contestant's head, while an upside-down colander decorated with various kitchen utensils topped another. Cindy and Kerry Plackmeyer clearly had their jobs in mind. Cindy, Ryland Homes marketing manager, balanced a house on her head, while Kerry, operations manager for WBAL and 98 Rock Radio, carried the case of an antique radio on his. The "Alice in Wonderland" theme was in particular abundance.

Jan. 12, 1969, is the day most Baltimore Colts fans will never forget. Place-kicker Jim Turner kicked three field goals and halfback Matt Snell ran 4 yards for a touchdown, as the New York Jets defeated the Colts, 16-7, in Super Bowl III in one of the greatest upsets in sports history.The Jets were led by a cocky, upstart quarterback named Jo Namath, who, three days before the game, predicted the Jets, three-touchdown underdogs, would win. "In fact, I'll guarantee it," said Namath, who went on to complete 17 of 28 passes for 206 yards, as the AFL won its first Super Bowl.

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- The Baltimore Orioles had everything in place for yesterday's Rule V draft but a contingency plan.The club was all set to select outfield prospect Pat Howell from the New York Mets. Pitcher Mike Smith had been released to make room on the 40-man roster. The news release had been drafted. But the Minnesota Twins drafted Howell before the Orioles came up to bat.Instead of gaining an outfielder who stole 79 bases at the Class A level last season, the Orioles lost a pitcher who was 9-6 for the Class AAA Rochester Red Wings, but a club official said that Smith no longer figured in the team's long-range plans.

Oakland Athletics general manager Sandy Alderson says the club lost from $5 million to $6 million in operating expenses last year and stands to lose more this year.If payments for collusion damages are added to last year's losses, the total A's deficit for 1991 stands between $7 million and $10 million, Alderson said.Alderson revealed those figures because some A's players want to extend their contracts this spring and the club is unwilling to do so.* YANKEES: Relief pitcher Steve Howe, who previously refused to discuss the drug charges against him, spoke briefly about his case for the first time.
