When a torrential rainstorm hit Barcelona, Spain, the nigh before the city was scheduled to play host to the first World League of American Football game on ABC-TV two weeks ago, the owner of the Barcelona Dragons, Josef Maria Figueras, did what he felt was the logical thing.He called Mike Lynn, the WLAF commissioner, and told him the game should be postponed. He said that soccer games in Spain are postponed in bad weather and he feared if the game were played, only 200 fans might show up.Lynn then explained that American football games aren't postponed, especially when they're scheduled to be played on network TV in America.

COLLEGE PARK - The players on Maryland's men's and women's soccer teams can't look at their respective opponents Friday any different than they have others they have faced this season. But the Terps understand the significance that these games hold. When the 12th-ranked men's team faces Michigan in Ann Arbor and the women's team plays host to Rutgers at Ludwig Field, it will mark Maryland's first in-conference competition of any kind as a member of the Big Ten. The school officially joined the league in July after 61 years in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The daily scene around the North Carroll basketball team is a dismal one.The young and winless Panthers (0-4) seem to be on the verge of accepting their losing ways.It's obvious the team needs a boost, maybe an experienced veteran to take charge on the floor.Someone like senior point guard Mike Roberts, a fiery player who never stops hustling."We're dead at practice," said Roberts. "No one shows much emotion. We need someone to step up. It's not like they're not trying but we don't have a lot of size and need to make up for it with enthusiasm.

DHAHRAN, Saudi Arabia -- War is no picnic, but Iraqi prisoners in U.S. custody can at least be assured of hot food, showers, soccer games and, coming soon, big-screen television.Standard British accommodations include individual toilets and bunk beds. There are also showers, three hot meals a day and top-of-the-line British S-10 gas masks, better than those many troops have been issued.And for those Iraqis who are Christians, Saudi Arabian prison camps are allowing them a measure of religious freedom that has been largely denied to Western allied forces throughout this Muslim land.

The game Saturday night between UMBC and Loyola features two of the top goal scorers in Division I men's soccer, but the Retrievers' Pete Caringi III and the Greyhounds' Larry Ndjock don't think the spotlight should be on them. "You can't compare [us]," Caringi said. "I don't know much about him; he might not know much about me. It doesn't really matter what we do. It's about how our teams finish at the end of the year. That's really all that matters. Right now, I'm not really focused on me versus him. " Added Ndjock (pronounced EN-jock)

INVITING KIDS to "come and kick the ball around," Mount Airy Recreation Council President Pat Weddle is hoping that the summer weekly drop-in soccer games will help local children build enthusiasm for the world's most popular sport.Expanding the program this year to include boys and girls of all ages, the MARC-sponsored pickup games are designed to expose youths to soccer in a fun way. With no commitment to a weekly practice and game schedule, the kids are free to develop their skills and techniques at their own pace.

WASHINGTON -- It was considered a soccer venue well before D.C. United set up shop here in April. For decades, RFK Stadium has been the site of international soccer events. The World Cup, for Pele's sake, has been here.Pardon the Washington Soccer Organizing Committee for 1996 if it isn't shaking in its boots over the prospect of being one of the five venues for Olympic soccer matches."This venue had 75 full-time employees for the World Cup two years ago," said Emilio Pozzi, the Executive Vice President of WSOC.

A future lacrosse goalie for Towson University gave No. 6 Severna Park all it could handle on the soccer field in Friday night's Class 4A state championship game at UMBC. Wootton's Matt Hoy had a goal and an assist in the first half, leading the Patriots to a title in their first trip to the finals with a 3-1 victory. Severna Park suffered just its second loss of the season and fell short in its bid to win a state championship for the first time since 2001. "Wootton is a very well-coached, organized team that has 11 technical players," said Severna Park's first-year coach Ryan Parisi.

Last Saturday was a real downer for me. I've had days where I had to watch back-to-back playoff games at the same venue, and others where I had to travel a moderate distance to cover two separate matchups, but Saturday marked the first time since I joined The Aegis that I've had to be at three different games which were being held at three different locations. There was the 1A boys soccer semifinal with Havre de Grace and Brunswick first, then the 3A North regional football semifinal between North Harford and Milford Mill, then the 3A boys soccer semifinal between North Harford and Urbana.
