INDIANAPOLIS - The Ravens' quest for a franchise quarterback finally ended when Joe Flacco capped a stellar postseason by engineering a Super Bowl victory. Now, a championship and Flacco's unresolved contract as a pending unrestricted free agent have created a complex reality. Flacco is poised to either be paid as much as a $20.46 million franchise tender next season or be retained through a potential blockbuster deal that could rival New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees' $100 million contract.

The Canadian Football League's board of governors has effectively voted the marquee player out of their future with a rules change designed to cut fiscal corners.The intent of the new rule -- voted on at last month's meeting in Edmonton -- is to award marquee status only to players with legitimate drawing power such as Calgary's Doug Flutie. The effect is to ensure that quarterbacks such as Timm Rosenbach, cut last year by Hamilton, and Mike Kerrigan, a bench-warmer in Toronto, don't get close to marquee money again.

She may not be horse racing's new Zenyatta, but Royal Delta ran a stirring race to win the $2 million Ladies Classic for the second year in a row. The race was one of the few formful things to happen Friday at Santa Anita on the first of two days of Breeders' Cup races. The announced crowd of 34,619 watched as foreign horses (two French bred and one Argentine) won half of the day's six races. There are nine races today. Royal Delta ran an unusual race — from the front. She normally rallies from behind.

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- A friend of Lou Holtz once said the Irish coach operates on a simple two-step philosophy."No. 1: If it doesn't fit, force it. No. 2: If you don't have a crisis, create one."Holtz didn't manufacture the latest thunderbolt that struck the nTC Irish last week with the arrest of two of their most important players on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct. But the friend's portrait describes how Holtz thrives on turning adversity into opportunity.You can bet Holtz will try to use the youthful misfor-tune of quarterback Rick Mirer and linebacker Demetrius DuBose to narrow their focus from the frolics of life to the fury of football and to ratchet this team's attitude one notch higher toward achieving excellence on the field.

Rory Sabbatini's heart and sense of golf history certainly are in the right place. The sentiments of a defending champion, though, may not stand up to the hard-bitten realities of the contemporary PGA Tour. The Byron Nelson Championship plays its 43rd edition this week — honoring the gentlemanly "Lord Byron" whose run of 11 consecutive tournament wins and 18 in a season might as well be chiseled into the PGA Tour record books. "The only emissary this tournament will ever need is Byron Nelson's name," Sabbatini told reporters not long ago. "That in itself is inspiration enough for anybody on tour."

This is a major coup for WWE, to have Mickey Rourke in the ring at the company's marquee show. I think it's bigger than Donald Trump at WrestleMania 23 and certainly bigger than Floyd Mayweather's match last year. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/ringposts)

Since taking over the century-old Patterson Theater a few years ago, the Creative Alliance has refashioned and remodeled it into an exciting creative space for artists across mediums. So it follows that when the Creative Alliance set about remaking the street-front space below the Patterson's old projection room into a lounge, the result would be as eye-catching. Open since May, Marquee Lounge is supposed to be an after-hours spot for the theater's patrons. But since the lounge is beautifully decorated, well-staffed and has a satisfying beer and wine menu, it would succeed as a destination on its own — even if the Creative Alliance wasn't there.

On March 12, thousands of lacrosse fanatics will filter through the gates of M&T Bank Stadium for the Face-Off Classic, eager to watch a triple header where each game could have the feel of an NCAA Tournament semifinal. The event is expected to generate significant revenue for the city, promote the game to a larger audience, and serve as a de facto celebration for a sport that continues to grow on a national stage. Playing a regular season contest in front of a large audience in an NFL stadium seems, at first blush, to be a no-lose situation.

The LPGA Championship played to sizable, enthusiastic crowds last week at Locust Hill Country Club. The event delivered a memorable performance, too, with Cristie Kerr's 12-stroke romp to a second major trophy. Now the question is whether LPGA bosses want to do it again. The tour's annual stop outside Rochester, N.Y., stepped up to major status this year in a stopgap measure as the LPGA took control of its flagship event and moved through the first months of Commissioner Michael Whan's tenure.

Harborplace, once a symbol of Baltimore's rebirth, turns 30 this weekend. It is showing its age and has lost some of the its allure, but it still has appeal. On a quiet summer afternoon this week — probably a little too quiet for Harborplace merchants — patrons whiled away the time sitting in the Light Street pavilion eating crab cakes and taking in the striking view of the Inner Harbor. But it's hard to observe the scene without engaging in the favorite Baltimore pastime of naming restaurants that used to be here.

When Tony Stewart finally wins the Daytona 500, he should receive the Dale Earnhardt treatment. Stewart won his fifth season-opening Nationwide Series race in the last six years on Saturday. On Sunday, he whiffed on his chance for his first Daytona 500 win … again. "We just missed," he said. "We've missed it since we got here. I'm not sure what we missed, but we'll figure it out." There's no question Stewart is one of the best American drivers of all time.
