THE ST. LOUIS Chamber of Commerce determined that appearing in the Super Bowl last year provided the equivalent of $344 million in television exposure for the city. Everywhere I go in Baltimore, I see and hear that retailers and restaurants are doing a booming business as a result of the Ravens' drive to the Super Bowl. And travel agents and ticket brokers are struggling to keep up with demand as people with means search for ways to get into Tampa Bay's Raymond James Stadium on Sunday.

TAMPA, Fla. -- What Darryl Talley remembers from his formative years with the Buffalo Bills are the knock-knock jokes."Knock-knock.""Who's there?""Owen.""Owen who?""Owen-eight, Owen-10," Talley said with a wince during th opening round of interviews for Super Bowl XXV.Talley, a linebacker, is one of two current Bills who were on th field through a pair of 2-14 seasons and a 4-12 campaign in the mid-1980's. Guard Jim Richter is the other.Which is what makes this more "gratifying" for Talley.

TAMPA, Fla. - The city was a little different the last time New York Giants tight end Howard Cross was in a Super Bowl here. Security was much tighter. The nation was in the midst of the Gulf War. And, of course Cross, then 23, was more of a pass catcher. This season, he had the same number of catches (four) that he had in that game 10 years ago, which was played at defunct Tampa Stadium, a 20-19 Giants win over the Buffalo Bills. Cross is the only current Giant on the roster from that game.

Thirty percent of the cards will employ a horizontal format.It's not an error. There are two No. 1s in this set, Emmitt Smith and Mark Carrier, because Pro Set crowned co-Rookies of the Year.

TAMPA, Fla. -- On the morning after, there was no talk of a New York Giants dynasty. Indeed, three-peat is 12 months from even becoming a possibility again.As coach Bill Parcells perspired in the hot TV klieg lights yesterday, the questions that begged to be answered were of a more rudimentary nature.Will Parcells still be the coach next season?Who is the Giants' starting quarterback when training camp opens?Will the MVP of Super Bowl XXV still be on the roster then?Will the Cleveland Browns go after Bill Belichick, the top-gun defensive coordinator who silenced Buffalo's no-huddle offense?

TAMPA, Fla. -- "One more river to cross." The phrase is coach Marv Levy's slogan for the Buffalo Bills in their first Super Bowl visit.Translation: Getting to Super Bowl XXV is not nearly enough. All that counts and will be remembered is winning Super Bowl XXV.Just as quarterback Jim Kelly is Levy's major reason for being in the Super Bowl, he also is the major spokesman for the "river to cross" theme."Everybody's saying, 'We're going to the Super Bowl,' " Kelly said. "But my goal isn't to go to the Super Bowl.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Down, set, huh?The Buffalo Bills are an hourlong two-minute drill that confuses defenses and short-circuits scoreboards. Their hurry-up, no-huddle offense is like clockwork, and it happens all the time in almost no time."

Put miniature American flags in the hands of all 74,315 spectators at Tampa Stadium, sing the national anthem and offer the Pledge of Allegiance -- with the television/radio audience across the land joining the crowd, as one voice, for the inspirational recitation. What a heart-lifting panorama that would be.The National Football League could easily arrange it and, in the process, exhibit the type of patriotic leadership needed at a time like this. It also would make the 25th anniversary of the Super Bowl an extraordinary occasion for the entire country . . . mainly the families of those involved in the war.There's a subdued mood for football, as is to be expected with U.S. troops engaged in battle.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Buffalo Bills have indelible memories of their first Super Bowl.For quarterback Jim Kelly, there was the joy of anticipation, followed by the sting of defeat.For wide receiver Andre Reed, there was the sense of things spinning out of control, beyond his reach.For center Kent Hull, there was the carnival-like atmosphere that hit like a brick the moment he stepped off the plane in Tampa, Fla."Last year [the Super Bowl] was a circus," Hull said. "There are so many variables that go into a Super Bowl, you have no idea until you get there."
