TRY TO FORGIVE one more piece and some personal reflections in the matter of Lisa Olson, the Boston Herald sportswriter whose embarrassment in the Patriots' locker room has generated so provocative and durable a publicity stunt.I was not motivated or otherwise good enough to play college football, but high school football was a definitive experience.To understand the locker room, even in high school, you must understand that football is not merely or even primarily a game. It is ritualized warfare.

What do you get when the original American music combines with the architecture of the country's earliest days? A jazz room that has thrived over two decades and has helped revive a city.Back in 1968, the Maryland Inn was a dumpy dowager at the top of Annapolis' Main Street with a beauty shop, Chamber of Commerce office and employee locker room in the basement.Today, the inn is the stylish doyenne of a chain of five hotels in restored buildings, and its old locker room has become the King of France Tavern, a venue for jazz, folk and fusion artists.

Room for rent: 2,500 square feet. Plenty of closet space. Multiple showers. Hi-tech toys. Been vacant since last Thursday. Price: 100 percent effort, OBO. If interested, call Randy. There are certain bits of oddity that only seem to exist within the boundaries of sports. Today's example is the athletic locker room, which until now has been a wonderful place for the storage of equipment, for the changing of clothes, for the taking of showers. Now, at least on the campus of UMBC, the athletic locker room is the perfect place for the stillness of sports.

Bulletin: Victor Kiam has found religion (turns out, it was neatly tucked away inside a Lady Remington gift set lying around the house). The owner of the New England Patriots, the man who only recently said he had no problem if his players "wiggled their waggles" in the face of a woman reporter, is suddenly a champion of women's rights.Already, Kiam is hard at work in support of his new-found cause. He took out full-page ads in several newspapers, apologizing for whatever he might have said, decrying male chauvinism and praising Lisa Olson, the reporter who apparently was sexually harassed in the Patriots locker room.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots, under the eye of NFL headquarters, yesterday fined one of the five players who sexually harassed a female reporter last week in their locker room, calling the player's behavior "unacceptable and unwarranted."The Patriots did not release the player's name or the amount of the fine, but team sources said it is tight end Zeke Mowatt, a free agent picked up from the New York Giants during the off-season. According to the sources, Mowatt, who will make $460,000 this year, will be fined $2,000, spread out over 14 weeks.

I'VE COVERED politics and I've covered crime, and I've liked them both. But one thing I understood about those assignments: Sometimes you found yourself hanging around with a questionable class of people.I've never covered sports, but I hear the same is true.Lisa Olson covers sports for the Boston Herald. No matter what people think about getting free tickets and meeting celebrities, being a sports reporter is hard work.And the last thing you need, along with deadline pressure and road trips and working weekends for your foreseeable life, is to have a clutch of football players position their genitals close to your face and make lewd suggestions while you're trying to work.

With the Ravens seemingly moving closer to catastrophe than the playoffs, coach Brian Billick tried to diffuse the distractions swirling around his team yesterday, defending the stability of his locker room and disputing reports that offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh has been fired. Local television stations reported Wednesday that the Ravens will let Cavanaugh go after the season. A team source told The Sun that no decision has been officially made, but Cavanaugh is "unlikely" to return.
