WIMBLEDON, England -- The subject is locker rooms. At Wimbledon, as in England, class is more than a state of mind; it's a way of life.Champions and seeded players in first class, top 50 in second, tour gypsies and junior wannabes in third. No exceptions allowed.For more than a decade, PamShriver dressed in first class. She could take afternoon tea with Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert, or look out a window to see the ever-changing summer weather.But Shriver, ranked 34th in the world, is unseeded this year and relegated to second class.

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.

WHY DOESN'T Lisa Olson shut up?I admit it. That is what I have been thinking ever since Olson, a Boston sportswriter, began publicly explaining how she was sexually harassed by five New England Patriots in their locker room last month.That is what I thought again Tuesday, when I heard that another sportswriter, Denise Tom of USA Today, had been denied access to the Cincinnati Bengals' locker room after their loss Monday night to the Seahawks.Denise and I became sportswriters more than a decade ago (I switched to news three years ago.)

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.
