The silver shine of the Vince Lombardi Trophy was dimmed yesterday by the fingerprints of hundreds of Ravens fans whose purple passion was rewarded with a touch of football history. They'll polish it for today's parade. A day after the team's dominating win in Super Bowl XXXV and a day before the official civic celebration in downtown Baltimore, Ravens President and Chief Executive David Modell treated a small but loyal crowd to a close-up of the prize awarded to National Football League champions.

The mayor can rock out. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake shared her Spotify playlist this week -- the songs that ostensibly get her pumped up before big Ravens games. She goes with M&T Bank stadium standbys like The White Stripes "Seven Nation Army. " There's Ray Lewis' walk-on song "Hot in Herre" by Nelly. And she tells Spotify her "personal favorite" is "This is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan. We like that she picked "Run This Town. " Which, you know, she kinda does.

Noel Redding, 57, an English musician who played bass in the Jimi Hendrix Experience and made some of the most influential records in rock history, died Monday of unknown causes at his home in the pastoral town of Clonakilty, Ireland. Mr. Redding wrote two Experience songs, "Little Miss Strange" and "She's So Fine," but he is best known for anchoring the pioneering psychedelic sound of the Hendrix albums Axis: Bold as Love, Are You Experienced? and Electric Ladyland. Mr. Redding performed on the hits "Foxey Lady" and "Purple Haze" (and later painted one of his bedrooms purple)

SHAQ DIESELShaquille O'Neal (Jive 41529)On the face of it, Shaquille O'Neal's debut album seems like just another sports-celeb vanity project. After all, with production by Erick Sermon and Def Jeff, plus cameos by the Fu-Schnickens and Phife from a Tribe Called Quest, "Shaq Diesel" is blessed with enough first-rate help that it would sound good even if all O'Neal did was dribble to the beat. So here's the surprise -- O'Neal raps well enough to make the all-star support unnecessary. It helps that he's got a strong voice and enough rhythm to easily go one-on-one with his guests.

JIMI HENDRIX: WOODSTOCKJimi Hendrix (MCA 11063)Even though much of the crowd was already gone by the time Jimi Hendrix's Gypsy Sun & Rainbows band took the stage at Woodstock, its performance became a major part of the festival's legacy, thanks in large part to the guitarist's note-shattering rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Unfortunately, that's all most people have ever heard of the group's performance, but "Jimi Hendrix: Woodstock" should change that. Offering 11 songs from the group's performance, it not only preserves the original context for "The Star-Spangled Banner" -- which actually served as a bridge between "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)

THE RAVENS lost more than a star running back and Pro Bowl performer when Jamal Lewis was suspended for two games in violation of the NFL's substance and alcohol abuse policy. They lost a great deal of their offensive identity. When the Ravens play the Buffalo Bills tomorrow at M&T Bank Stadium, a lot of their smash-mouth style will be gone as Lewis begins the first game of his suspension. Their profile as a running team won't change much because they have solid backups in Chester Taylor and Musa Smith, but you can't replace what Lewis brought to the offense, and to this team.

REMEMBER the purple glow that bathed Charm City for weeks? The auto antennas, city sidewalks and fire hydrants that sprouted purple banners? It seems a lifetime ago, though it was just last January. Baltimore leapt back onto the national sports map. The disparate reaches of this community coalesced around a bunch of men in thick padding and shiny helmets. The Ravens were champs -- and so were we all. "This is the greatest city in America, and we have the greatest football team in the world," exulted Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley, hailing "our conquering heroes."

For one exhilarating moment, the Ravens' Trent Dilfer had the dream quarterbacking job of his life. In the next moment, he had no job at all. When the Ravens agreed to terms on a five-year contract with Elvis Grbac this week, Dilfer went down in history as the first quarterback to win the Super Bowl and lose his job before the next season. The only other Super Bowl-winning quarterback who did not return to his team the next season was the Denver Broncos' John Elway, who retired after consecutive world championships in 1997 and '98. In a span of six months, Dilfer went from the bench to the Super Bowl to the unemployment line.
