ANNAPOLIS -- Ever since he was a 10-year-old growing up in Detroit, Jerry Dawson wanted to be the second coming of Lynn Swann.The Pittsburgh Steelers' receiver was Dawson's idol. Swann was so graceful, so sure-handed, such a leaper. He made pass receiving look like ballet."I wanted to jump like he did, get open and make that incredible catch," said Dawson, who caught three touchdown passes in Navy's opening win over Richmond."I remember watching him on TV all the time, especially in the Super Bowl, running downfield with defensive backs hanging all over him. He'd dive and make the catch -- even one-handed -- no matter how they covered him. As a kid, I'd go out in the street and try to do the same thing."

Pittsburgh has waited 26 years for a ring for its thumb. I was not born when they last won the Super Bowl. I grew up a Steelers fan, and while most people in Baltimore cringe when I admit that, I can't help but grin. Although I have lived in Maryland the majority of my life, I spent my summers and every major holiday in Pittsburgh with my grandparents. Many ask me why I never relinquished my devotion to the Steelers. The answer is simple. The Colts escaped in the middle of the night in 1984.

As a teen-ager, Michael Pangalis fulfilled a childhood dream, running away from home to become a clown in the circus. But his parents had other ideas. They drove nonstop from their Essex home to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College in Sarasota, Fla., grabbed their son and said, "Michael, you're going to run the restaurant." "And so I ran the restaurant," Pangalis said yesterday, sitting at one of his tables drinking black coffee. "Now, I don't run the restaurant." After 54 years, Pangalis and his family will serve their final Greek salad and the last pile of steamed crabs today at his A-1 Crab Haven at Old Eastern Avenue and Stemmers Run Road.

The TV Repairman:If you're the type of fan who likes to ease into a big game, Maryland taking on N.C. State at noon (Channels 13, 7), Michigan-Minnesota on ESPN and Florida-South Carolina on HTS 12:30 should get you ready for the Notre Dame-Florida State headliner at 1:30 on NBC tomorrow.Taking just a bit of the sheen off this latest Game of the Century, although a very little bit, is the fact the winner probably moves on to a Fiesta Bowl meeting New Year's Day against Miami. Yes, Virginia, there is no ultimate game in any sport, as Duane Thomas so ably pointed out at a Super Bowl eons ago: "If this is the ultimate game, how come they're playing it again next year?"
