Wear your Jamal Lewis jersey. Paint your face. Warm up some pizza rolls. Game time: remote control, your favorite snack and a beverage on one side. Lucky Ray Lewis bobblehead doll and panic button on the other. It's not the most comfortable way to watch a game, but there's reason to be nervous today when the New York Jets square off against the Ravens. Every move will be scrutinized more closely than a surgeon's first bypass operation. We're looking for hints, and they'll all be on display today.

Open question: Isn't it just a little early to start wondering if Joe Flacco is going to have a post-contract letdown? Maybe I turned on the radio at just the wrong moments, but I could swear that some sports talkshows were buzzing on Friday and Saturday about how Flacco just hasn't seemed like himself during the first two preseason games. And, of course, the conversation couldn't help but come around to the fact that he parlayed his Super Bowl MVP performance into that huge contract.

In the few weeks since his election, Bill Clinton has made i clear that he plans to put the economy at the top of the new administration's agenda. An Economic Security Council will share equal billing with the National Security Council.And to get the ball rolling, Clinton has called a "working" economic summit of business, labor, academic and government leaders.I applaud Clinton's running start. A lot needs to be done to cope not only with the lingering recession, but also with the more important, long-range task of preparing to compete in the 21st century.

Ravens defensive end Pernell McPhee simultaneously furrowed his brow, shook his head and frowned. It was a telling reaction triggered by McPhee recounting instances of how the defense has consistently failed to stop the run this season, a bizarre departure from a traditional hallmark of the reigning AFC North champions. "We're real disappointed," McPhee said. "It's about the name that the Baltimore Ravens holds, and we aren't playing that kind of defense, especially run defense.

When a man violently resisted being taken to prison, Baltimore Circuit Judge David B. Mitchell did what every city judge is trained to do: He pushed the panic button on his bench to call for sheriff's deputies. But no one came. So, correctional officers in the courtroom with shackled prisoners had to abandon their charges to try and restrain the defendant. As the man struggled - screaming "Just shoot me in the head!" - police officers who were in the court to testify rushed to help bring the defendant under control.

On Saturday night, Denise Kostka and her husband, disturbed by loud voices, peered out from their eighth-floor room in the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel and saw at least 100 teens massing on the street below. "I never saw anything like that, ever," said Kostka, visiting from Springfield, N.J., to take in the sights and see her niece who lives in Federal Hill. Then they saw police surround a car. "I thought, 'Oh my God, it's "COPS" live,'" Kostka said, referring to the popular reality television show.

In the Ravens' short tenure in Baltimore, this may have been the team's most lifeless and uninspired performance. Dropped passes. Fumbles. Missed tackles. Bad snaps. Not to mention a defense that couldn't stop the opposition on third down or halt the league's worst rushing offense even though it had two weeks to prepare. Or a second-round draft pick who still hasn't matured into a solid cornerback. If this was indeed a pivotal game in the 1997 season, the Ravens took a major step backward in losing, 24-13, to the Miami Dolphins before a sellout crowd of 64,354 at Memorial Stadium yesterday.

They started hitting the water off Sandy Point State Park near Annapolis at 8:10 a.m. Sunday, nearly 900 swimmers bent on crossing the Chesapeake Bay.A few hours later, only 164 had crossed -- and the rest were being hauled from the chilly Bay by a flotilla of Coast Guard and civilian rescue vessels.Among them were an 8-year-old girl who was treated for hypothermia, and a swimmer picked up by a boat two miles south of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.A State Police Med-Evac helicopter was pressed into service, searching more than 20 square miles of water south of the bridge with an infrared scanner, looking for anyone who might have slipped through the net.Meanwhile, the event's organizer was being arrested in Queen Anne's County for attempting to continue the next two legs of a planned "triathlon" event without a permit.

THE SEDUCTIVE appeal of violent role models was recently underscored in an essay by Harold Jackson in The Sun's Perspective section. Mr. Jackson, an Evening Sun editorial writer, wrote: "Young black men who want to be accepted as gang members try so hard to fit the mold that they don't see the strangulating limits of the stereotype they have decided to accept."Of course, violent stereotypes are hardly limited to black men, as the popularity of such superstars as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone readily attests.

WASHINGTON -- In all the tribulations of the first two years of his presidency, Bill Clinton is often compared to the previous Democrat to occupy the White House, Jimmy Carter. Clinton is said, like Carter, to try to take on too many problems at the same time and to try to be a micromanager, putting his finger into every pie that comes across the administration table.During and after Carter's single term, many critics faulted him particularly for permitting himself to become too personally, deeply and conspicuously engaged in the hostage crisis that began in November 1979 with the seizing of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and the holding of 52 Americans.
