For Baltimore sports fans, now is the early spring of our discontent. Could it really be that just six weeks ago, we were living in sports fandom ecstasy? The Baltimore Ravens were parading down Pratt Street hoisting a Vince Lombardi Trophy, having won the Super Bowl , the highest honor in U.S. professional sports. There was even a bit of afterglow leftover from the Orioles' surprising season and playoff effort, the first time Baltimore's Major League Baseball franchise had reached the post-season since 1997.

Washington Redskins coach Richie Petitbon met with quarterback Mark Rypien yesterday and told him he's the starting quarterback for the season finale Friday against the Minnesota Vikings.Rypien, who said Sunday that he'll probably be dropped at the end of the year by the team and that someone "on top" was making personnel decisions, said yesterday that his comments "might have been blown out of proportion." Rypien said his comments were only his "opinion" after his contract wasn't restructured last week.

Michael McCrary and Rob Burnett remain unconvinced. For a good part of this season, media and fans have showered the current Ravens team with questions about whether it is reminiscent of the 2000 squad that won the Super Bowl . Ravens coach Brian Billick and the players have shied away from making any such comparisons, and McCrary and Burnett - two critical cogs of the 2000 defense - did the same. "I don't think it's fair to anybody but especially them," Burnett, a former defensive end, said of the current team.

COLLEGE PARK -- Until he broke his leg midway through last season, Walt Williams led University of Maryland basketball players in a number of official and unofficial categories: points, assists, steals and breathtaking dunks.Now fully recovered from the injury that kept him off the court for six weeks -- he returned for the final three games of the 1990-91 season -- Williams has a chance to lead in another category: the first Terrapin on television this year.If Williams makes the team representing the United States in next month's Pan American Games in Cuba, he undoubtably will receive both the exposure and competition he missed while playing in only 17 games last season for Maryland.

There was a dramatic come-from-behind finish, a standout returning from injury to make good, a perfect season and an icing-on-the-cake shutout to close out the weekend. On Friday and Saturday at UMBC Stadium, Howard County boldly stated its case and stole the state soccer championship show with four state titles in four tries. The Mount Hebron boys opened by rallying with two goals in the final eight minutes for a 2-1 win over North Carroll in the Class 3A final Friday. Hammond, the state runner-up in Class 2A last season, was up next, and the Bears made no mistake with a 3-1 win over Loch Raven as senior standout Mostafa Ebrahimnejad (one goal, one assist)

ASHBURN, Va. - -After learning that he could become paralyzed if he continued to play football, Washington Redskins Pro Bowl left tackle Chris Samuels has told people in the organization that he will sit out the remainder of the season and plans to retire. Samuels, who suffered a serious neck injury about two weeks ago against the Carolina Panthers, reached his decisions after consulting with specialists, several of whom warned him about the possibility of no longer being able to walk if he attempted to prolong his career, NFL sources said.

San Francisco-- --Maybe coach Mike Nolan isn't the only one in the San Francisco 49ers' team picture auditioning for a job next season. Maybe Shaun Hill falls somewhere between the real deal and the second coming. Maybe the former Maryland quarterback is good enough to save Nolan from his recurring strategic brain cramps. Maybe it's not too late for the 49ers to jump back into the playoff picture. Sloooow down. Breathe into the paper bag. The 49ers won a game Saturday night, 20-13, over the backsliding Cincinnati Bengals.

The Rev. William Redmon wasn't offended when asked recently if defending state champion Mervo was at full strength when his City boys indoor track team defeated the Mustangs in an early-season meet at the Fifth Regiment Armory.In fact, Redmon welcomed the query and appeared to enjoy answering it."Oh, yes! They were all there," he said, his voice rising in the same manner it does when he's delivering a rousing sermon to his congregation at Baltimore's St. Katherine of Alexandria Episcopal Church.
