Sports business lunch is a collection of business stories from Baltimore and the rest of the country. From The Sun: Lacrosse's growth has been astounding. Deadspin best illustrated this with a map showing the spread of the college game over the last decade . (The site used data from The Growth Blog, another fascinating resource for tracking the way lacrosse has moved across the country.) US Lacrosse, tucked in a building next to Homewood Field - you've likely seen the statue of Native Americans out front playing the game - has driven and managed that growth.

Paul Cantabene swivels a chair in his Owings Mills office, converted space that used to be the Ravens' and Colts' headquarters. Stan Ross text-messages his former players and plots a career change from his mother's home in Lutherville. Cantabene and Ross were teammates at Loyola College in the early 1990s. They were assistants at Towson University when it reached the NCAA semifinals in 2001. They had plenty of shared experiences during their respective love affairs with college lacrosse - until they became head coaches, one in a division that's booming, the other in a level that doesn't reflect the game's growth.

Roone Arledge, the ABC executive who did as much to shape the look of American network television as anyone except its founders, died yesterday of complications from cancer. He was 71. Mr. Arledge was pronounced dead at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, said ABC spokesman Jeffrey Schneider. A 36-time Emmy winner, Mr. Arledge, who retired in 1998, defined thinking outside the box from the moment he arrived at ABC in 1960. Among the groundbreaking programs he introduced in his career - which included a decade as president of the network's news and sports divisions - were Monday Night Football, Wide World of Sports, Nightline and 20/20.

ATLANTA -- Attention, female television viewers: NBC is looking for you.Between Friday's opening ceremonies of the Summer Olympics and the closing on Aug. 4, NBC is determined to make its presentation as female-friendly as possible, and for good reason.Unlike most televised sporting events, where women make up approximately 40 percent of the audience, the Olympics bring roughly a 50/50 viewer split of men and women.And that's why over the 17 days that the Olympics unfold here, the NBC effort -- a total of 171 1/2 hours at a cost of $456 million -- will be less about the cold recitation and reporting of event results and more about the warm and fuzzy telling of the stories of the athletes who will take part in the proceedings, on the theory that women prefer warm and fuzzy over cold and no-nonsense.

The Columbia Association gym in River Hill is expected to end its fiscal year $400,000 over budget, and its sport and fitness division is on track to run a deficit for the first time in 10 years. The Columbia Gym, which opened in December 1998, has exceeded its income goals for the year by about $375,000, but showed nearly $575,000 more in expenses than officials projected last year. Rob Goldman, head of the association's sport and fitness division, said salary and wage expenses were $457,000 over budget because of the need for more staff to serve the large number of families with young children; higher wages because of a tight job market; and "poor" budgeting of personnel costs in the DaySpa and housekeeping.

Vitali Klitschko is heavyweight boxing's newest world champion. No need to cue a fanfare, though. On Saturday, Klitschko defeated journeyman Corrie Sanders for the World Boxing Council title vacated by Lennox Lewis' retirement. For some boxing observers, it was an uninspired bout that fit the division's diminished status. "It was dreadful," said noted boxing historian Thomas Hauser. "They looked awful. It was embarrassing. "Klitschko was still sucking air during post-fight interviews.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - By a clear margin, NCAA members yesterday approved an amendment that thwarted attempts to eliminate Johns Hopkins' ability to offer scholarships for Division I lacrosse and play the rest of its sports at the Division III level. Proposal 65-1, a measure sponsored by Hopkins and seven other schools that offer scholarships for a Division I sport, passed with about 70 percent of votes cast on the final day of business at an NCAA convention at the Opryland Resort and Convention Center.
