"Terrific. Except I haven't seen a check.

Bill Stealey, owner of the Spirit throughout its six-year history, announced at half-time of the team's 16-11 victory over Kansas City last night that he has sold the soccer team to local interests.The closest Stealey would come to confirming that former Baltimore Blast owner Ed Hale had purchased the club, however, was saying: "I started out as a Baltimore Blast season-ticket holder several years ago ... and tomorrow I will be a season- ticket holder of the Blast again."Along with the rumor that Hale, a banker and owner of the Baltimore Bays of the United Systems of Independent Soccer Leagues, was interested in returning to professional soccer was that he planned on resurrecting the nickname Blast.

The Spirit's owner says his money-losing professional indoor soccer team will go out of business unless it gets corporate and fan commitments to buy 50,000 tickets for the 1998-99 season by March 30."I don't believe we have any viable alternative," owner Bill Stealey wrote in a Feb. 23 letter to Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke. He said that in an attempt to spread chronic losses he has been absorbing, "Investors and limited partners have been pursued, and no one has stepped forward."The Spirit's general manager, Drew Forrester, elaborated in an interview Tuesday that Stealey, a former Hunt Valley businessman whose primary interest is his computer software-making business in Raleigh, N.C., has lost an average of about $500,000 a year during his six years of club ownership.

THE National Professional Soccer League's season is once again winding to a close and Baltimore Spirit fans can only shake their heads and wonder at the difference a year makes.An announcer on ESPN 2 called the Spirit's new game "artistic" and "free-flowing." Some might call it a "free-for-all." Are the Spirit's new players passionate, or do they just have a bad attitude? That may be a matter of opinion, but the fact is Baltimore soccer has certainly been different since Kenny Cooper left town.
