Baltimore's football teams haven't always lost on last-ditch field goals, as per the past two weeks. Sometimes, they've blocked those kicks. In 1978, with eight seconds remaining and the Colts leading 7-6, Denver tried a field goal. But defensive tackle Mike Barnes crashed through the Broncos' line, leaped and slapped the ball with his right hand, saving the day against the defending AFC champions. Thirty-four years later, Barnes recalls the play. "I knew I was going to block the kick when we lined up," the one-time Pro Bowl lineman said.

"I said, 'After all the bleep that happened to us today, you've got to tell a sick joke like that?' But it turns out, he was telling the truth.

For a guy who used to shake up opposing quarterbacks, former Baltimore Colts defensive end Fred Cook found himself a little dazed and confused Saturday night. "I got lost last night," said Cook, who drove 14 hours from his home in Mississippi to Baltimore. "Baltimore's changed a lot. It seems like there are new highways here. I don't remember [Interstate] 395." Cook, who hadn't visited the city in almost a decade, can be forgiven, and judging by the number of Colts fans who lined up outside the Baltimore Football Alumni Tent yesterday before the Ravens' game against the Cincinnati Bengals, he was. Bill Dunn of Perry Hall, 47, brought an RC Cola can with Cook's playing card printed on the side of the can. Jeff Laumann brought 10 of Cook's trading cards to sign.

ANNAPOLIS -- Maryland Democratic Party Chairman Nathan Landow is resigning to become a national fund-raiser for the Clinton-Gore campaign, making a graceful exit from a state organization disgruntled by his heavy-handedness.In his announcement yesterday, Mr. Landow, 59, denied his resignation had been spurred by long-standing disagreements with party officials, including a well-publicized shouting match with Gov. William Donald Schaefer at the Democratic National Convention in New York."That had no effect," Mr. Landow said of his spat with the #F governor over which one of them should announce Maryland's votes last week.

It's Vast Wasteland time at Maryland Art Place. "TV Dinner: Channel to Channel" addresses itself to the timeworn but ever-relevant subject of television and the society by means of media ranging from drawings and paintings to -- what else -- television.While the messages here pretty much boil down to the same old indictment of TV's pervasiveness, mindlessness, violence, etc., if the work is valid it doesn't really matter that we've heard what it's saying.Ah, but is the work at MAP valid? It is possible to say that some of it is silly, boring, obvious or beside the point.

Owens after the Ku Klux Klan tried to participate.Owens' decision Tuesday to eliminate the program to prevent the Klan from joining it has drawn attention from beyond the the county, after the American Civil Liberties Union prepared to side with the Klan.Yesterday morning's blitz by county workers left some residents angry and wondering whether the sudden death of the government program will leave more trash on the 26 miles of county roads that volunteers once cleaned up."
