Geroy Simon didn't know what to expect when he signed as a rookie free agent with the Canadian Football League's Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 1999. Fourteen years later, the former Maryland wide receiver has torn through the CFL record books on his way to becoming the most prolific pass catcher in league history. The 38-year-old Simon holds the CFL record for receiving yards (16,188), and he tied Ben Cahoon's record for most career receptions (1,017) last week. He can break that mark Sunday when his Saskatchewan Roughriders visit the Montreal Alouettes.

REGINA, Saskatchewan -- Quarterback Tracy Ham said he never expected to win easily yesterday. And for three quarters, an inspired Saskatchewan team, with some assistance from a gusty wind, nearly pulled off a major upset over the Baltimore Stallions.But in the end, the Stallions maintained their poise, while Ham showed why he is one of the Canadian Football League's most accomplished veterans.With a little under four minutes to play and Baltimore trailing, Ham turned a first-down scramble into a 45-yard touchdown run to spark the Stallions to a 28-24 victory before 30,758, the fourth-largest crowd to ever watch a game at Taylor Field.

The Baltimore Stallions will conclude their final road trip of the regular season tomorrow in Regina, Saskatchewan. For the Roughriders, it will mark the beginning of a crucial and brutal stretch that will determine their Canadian Football League playoff status.It has been a season of streaks for Saskatchewan (5-8), the fifth-place team in the Northern Division. It started the year with a 1-7 record, but rebounded to win four of its last five to approach respectability.The Roughriders now begin a month that will find them playing Baltimore and Calgary twice, before finishing the regular season in British Columbia.

REGINA, Saskatchewan -- The Canadian Football League could use a big party, and the little city of Regina is up to the task as its master of ceremonies.For decades, the word in the CFL was this city of 185,000, surrounded by the prairie that sends bone-chilling November winds through its cozy streets, was not worthy to play host to Grey Cup Week. Too cold. Not enough hotels. The stadium was considered too small to do justice to the nation's most important football game.Wrong.When the league's Board of Governors voted to award Regina the first Grey Cup in its long football history that dates to the 1890s, it did something right for a change.

Certain children start reading well before kindergarten. Two researchers at the University of Saskatchewan sampled 1,400 kindergarteners and found 20 very early readers - about 1.5 percent .Other researchers have found that most very early readers don't differ in general intelligence from other children, but they all come from home environments that support reading.- From ``Raising a Reader,''by Paul Kropp

Baltimore Stallions rookie Chris Wright has been named the Canadian Football League's Offensive Player of the Week after piling up 253 return yards in last week's 29-27 victory over Saskatchewan.Wright returned a punt 89 yards for a touchdown in the first half, then set up a second-half field goal by returning a missed Saskatchewan field goal for a franchise-record 100 yards.Wright, who has amassed 2,026 return yards, needs 177 return yards over his last two games to break the single-season CFL record of 2,202 set by Edmonton Eskimos star Gizmo Williams.

REGINA, Saskatchewan -- The Baltimore Stallions who walked on to windy, Taylor Field yesterday were in many ways the same team that lost to the Calgary Stampeders, 29-15, three months ago.Then again, no, they weren't. Baltimore was a tired, banged-up team in August. Tracy Ham could barely walk, having just suffered a sprained ankle four days earlier against Edmonton. Free safety Lester Smith had been lost for the season. Baltimore was playing its third game in nine days.But the most telling difference coming into the Grey Cup could be found on the Stallions' offensive line.

REGINA, Saskatchewan -- They are not sure if they have a place to put it, but the Baltimore Stallions are bringing the Grey Cup back home.The Stallions became the first American team ever to take the Canadian Football League's most coveted prize, and they left no doubts about their supremacy, as they systematically whipped the Calgary Stampeders, 37-20, before 52,564 at Taylor Field.Several players took turns pouring champagne into the Cup, as the Stallions' locker room erupted with hugs and high-fives.

REGINA, Saskatchewan -- Jim Speros can't read.He thought his agreement with the CFL gave him the territorial rights to Hampton Roads, Va. Now he thinks his lease at Memorial Stadium gives him scheduling priority over an NFL team.He's wrong, on both counts.Perhaps Gov. Parris Glendening should present him with a pair of eyeglasses when they meet Tuesday, the better to help Speros discern fine print. That's about all the Stallions owner will get out of the state.Speros being Speros, he will not go quietly.

It's not often that the word big is associated with Stallions running back Chris Wright.That is, unless the topic is big plays, a term used by Stallions coach Don Matthews for plays of 25 yards or more.In that regard, there is no one bigger than the 5-foot-8, 175-pound Wright, who entered yesterday's game against the Saskatchewan Roughriders with a team-high 26 big plays.He added two long gainers -- an 89-yard punt return for a touchdown on a bizarre play and a 100-yard return of a missed field-goal try -- in the Stallions' 29-27 victory yesterday that clinched the Southern Division and home-field advantage throughout the first two rounds of the playoffs.

REGINA, Saskatchewan -- Chris Wright consistently has let his actions speak loudly this year for the Baltimore Stallions.One of the reasons Baltimore has won 17 of 20 games and is headed to tomorrow's Grey Cup is the outstanding play of its special teams. Great field position has taken pressure off Baltimore's offense, thanks largely to Wright's kick-returning ability.All year, Wright has responded humbly to praise from coaches, teammates and reporters. But he had to speak up after he was denied Rookie of the Year honors at the CFL awards banquet Thursday night.

REGINA, Saskatchewan -- The news hit Doug Flutie like a blindside sack.His right arm, the most valuable one in the Canadian Football League, the one that had carried him through four seasons most quarterbacks only dream about, was a wreck. His flexor tendon was torn to the point where it had separated from the elbow. Surgery would be required. His 1995 season, which up to that point was shaping up as the best of his career, was over.More than two months ago, Flutie held a news conference to make the somber announcement.
