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.

Strawberry stood in the dank hallway outside the locker room after Tuesday night's loss at Florida State and succinctly stated what it will take for the Terps to return to the NCAA tournament.

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.

EDMONTON, Alberta -- Wayne Gretzky, used to playing in front of screaming crowds, watched Game 3 of the Smythe Division finals last night in the relative quiet of the basement of the Northlands Coliseum, accompanied by the sound of the ringing in his ears.That ringing, along with a headache, about 25 stitches by his left ear and doubts about his status for Game 4 were the product of a puck Gretzky took to the left ear late in the first period that took him out of the game, which his Los Angeles Kings lost in double overtime, 4-3, to the Edmonton Oilers.

Diatribe against AtlantaMike Littwin's diatribe against Atlanta playing host to the 1996 Olympics was offensive. But the column said more about regional stereotypes and Littwin's ignorance than about Atlanta. Thankfully, the International Olympic Committee had better sense. I welcome the opportunity for the capital of my home state to show what a hospitable and cosmopolitan place it is. Perhaps Littwin will be among those who benefit from learning what Atlanta is really like.Richard M. SmithBaltimoreBox seat in Athens for LittwinI was saddened to read in Mike Littwin's column how disappointed he was that Atlanta was selected over Athens, Greece as the site for the 1996 Summer Olympics.

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.
