SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- This one slashed to the very core of the Navy football team.On the brink of exorcising the ghosts of many losses past, the Midshipmen again fell victim to their haunting misfortunes of 1999 yesterday and dropped their 36th consecutive game to Notre Dame, 28-24, before 80,012 sun-splashed fans at Notre Dame Stadium.Navy (2-6) has been accustomed to narrow defeats this season -- this was its fifth by six or fewer points -- but the latest was especially heartbreaking because of the opposition and because of a controversial measurement with 1: 20 remaining that could have iced the Irish for good.

Although many Johnny Unitas plays are seared in Baltimore's collective memory, the NFL is betting folks might want a refresher. The organization has introduced a collectible it's calling the Keepr. People plug it into their computer and can revel in 45 minutes of Johnny U's greatest moments. There's also photos, interviews and stats. “The Keepr creates an experience that's like visiting the Hall of Fame for each player, right from your computer,” former Colts running back Tom Matte, who played with Unitas, said in a statement.

ANNAPOLIS -- When quarterback Alton Grizzard first stepped into Notre Dame Stadium as a Navy plebe in 1987, he looked around for traces of the legends, the giants of Irish lore like Knute Rockne and The Gipper."

GOV. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. is right: His administration's plan to sell 836 acres of environmentally sensitive state land to a developer at a bargain price - and possibly sell other such state parcels - does raise a significant public policy issue that ought to be explored. But the public policy issue that must be addressed is not the one that Mr. Ehrlich identifies. Nice try, governor, but Marylanders are too smart for blatant misdirection. In a statement last week, Mr. Ehrlich argued that the questions raised by these possible land deals involve the efficient operation of government.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- NASCAR's 2005 Nextel Cup champion Tony Stewart made it clear he wanted NASCAR to crack down on aggressive drivers in this Daytona 500 and NASCAR listened. The first driver to be penalized was Stewart, who drove his No. 20 Chevrolet across three lanes of traffic to push driver Matt Kenseth into the grass entering Turn 3 at Daytona International Speedway yesterday on Lap 108. "He took me out intentionally because he was mad," said Kenseth, who earlier in the race had leaned into Stewart when he said his car momentarily lost its grip.

If you start on the visiting team's sideline at tonight's AFC championship game, and trace the roots far enough - from the stadium in Foxborough, Mass., past his house in Nantucket, through old jobs in Cleveland and New York - you'll eventually end up at a handsome two-bedroom house in a quiet, secluded corner of Annapolis. For a half century, this was a multilingual home. The lady of the house spoke four languages, even taught Spanish at Hiram College in Ohio a lifetime ago. And the two men spoke a language all their own, a hybrid of X's and O's and coachspeak that usually only the two Belichick men understood completely.

For more than a century, spectators have counted on the annual Army-Navy football game for the pageantry, pride and tradition of one of the most spirited rivalries in college sports. But one thing the game has not been known for lately is football. The Naval Academy and West Point have had an increasingly difficult time staying competitive during the past 20 years because their service requirements make it hard to attract talented players and because their academic standards are tougher than those at most football powers.
