It was the night before the Aberdeen boys conference championship game, but Eagles coach Richard Hart wasn't discussing basketball. Instead, he was proudly rattling off the grades his players had accumulated the first semester - mostly A's and B's. Hart said his team spends two hours a day before 4:30 p.m. practices "in my room here conducting a study hall." The next night, he was happily talking about the Eagles' 62-47 victory over Perryville for their fourth consecutive Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference title.

Joe Cool has become Comfortable Joe. Throughout the years, there is one picture of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco etched in the minds of every fan. It's the one where Flacco sits on the bench after a failed series with a blank look on his face. He talks to no one, and doesn't even look at game photos. As teammates walk by, Flacco continues to stare into the abyss. That doesn't happen any longer. Because of a new coordinator, position coach, blocking scheme and running game, Flacco's completion numbers and passing yards are up and his interceptions and sack totals are down.

BASEBALL COMMISSIONER Bud Selig has antagonized fans and players all winter with his ham-fisted handling of baseball's financial and labor woes, so it's no surprise he'd eventually anger one of his own. Orioles owner Peter Angelos must have blown a gasket when he heard Mr. Selig remark recently that "relocation is coming" and Washington is the "prime candidate" to get a new franchise. Publicly, Mr. Angelos has walked a fine diplomatic line on this issue. With as many as a quarter of his customers coming from Washington and its environs, he doesn't want to appear to be the Grinch who prevents them from getting their own team.

TORONTO -- Sitting around one day during the National League playoffs, Pirates manager Jim Leyland offered this free lesson in baseball physics: "If a team wins, the players get the credit. If a team loses, the manager gets the blame."But here's one to chew on: If a team wins, can the manager still get the blame?We're going to find out if the Blue Jays win the World Series. Cito Gaston is the Jays' manager, and no one sits around listening to his baseball Zen. It's not a nice thing to say, but no one much cares what he thinks.

There are college football seasons in which two teams clearly belong in the national championship game, and there are seasons when the situation is, to say the least, muddled. Last season, Southern California and Texas were the only unbeaten teams at the end of the regular season. They met in the Rose Bowl. Texas won. There was nothing to debate. This season is shaping up as a cloudy one. Ohio State, the nation's top-ranked team after beating Michigan on Saturday, clearly belongs in the title game.

A Baltimore community group with a long record of fun will have another big Super Bowl party Sunday and, once again, there will be lots of action on more than 30 betting pools. (I'm not going to mention the group or where it meets. You think I'm a snitch or somethin'?) The modest wagering in odd categories is what makes the event such a blast. In addition to the usual - which team wins, which team leads at halftime - you can bet on which team wins the coin toss, which team gets the first sack, which recovers the first fumble, whether the first cheerleader to appear on the TV screen is blond, whether the longest field goal occurs in the first half or the second, whether a referee will get knocked down during the game, and whether a majority of men attending the Super Bowl party wear boxers or briefs.

Last seasonThe Minnesota Vikings were the surprise champions last year at 11-5, but they were blown out at home, 24-7, by the Washington Redskins in their first playoff game. The only other team in this division with a winning record was the Green Bay Packers at 9-7. The other three teams staggered to 5-11 finishes. Now that's a definition of mediocre.New coachesDave Wannstedt went from first to one of the worst when he left Dallas to become the Bears' head coach. Like Mike Ditka, he's a native of the Pittsburgh area and played at Pitt, but the comparisons end there.

For top-seeded Duke, No. 5 Denver, No. 6 Notre Dame and No. 7 Maryland, Saturday's semifinal round of the NCAA tournament at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore takes center stage in terms of preparation and focus. But for two of those teams, Monday's title game is nearly as imposing. Championship weekend presents the two programs that advance to the tournament final with the unique dilemma of going all-out in Saturday's semifinals, recovering physically on Sunday, and finding enough in the fuel tank to play in Monday's final.

McDonogh's No. 1 girls lacrosse team kept its winning streak rolling to 103 games Monday with a 16-9 win at No. 2 Marriotts Ridge that tied what is believed to be the national record for consecutive high school girls lacrosse victories. Olivia Jenner dominated the draw and Elizabeth George had five goals and an assist to power the Eagles, who have not lost in more than five years, to victory in a showdown of undefeated teams. "We were really pumped up for this game," George said.

The Blast had the same three-point lead going into the fourth quarter of Friday's game against Syracuse that it did on the road Sunday against the Silver Knights, who ended up coming from behind to win. It wasn't going to happen a second time at Baltimore Arena. This time, the Blast protected its advantage and added to it before coming away with a 10-5 win in front of an announced 4,030. "It was nice to come back after losing a game in Syracuse that I really thought we should have won," coach Danny Kelly said of the 9-8 loss that ended the Blast's seven-game winning streak.

For the better part of an hour, general manager Ozzie Newsome answered questions about the Ravens' numerous offseason losses, their remaining roster holes and the challenge they would face trying to repeat as Super Bowl champions. Finally, he decided to turn the tables on reporters and ask a question of his own. "I'd like for someone to be able to tell me that we aren't good enough to go to the playoffs right now," Newsome said at the team's annual pre-draft luncheon in mid-April.

The North Carroll girls basketball team is 5-4 behind the superb all-around play of junior guard Megan Bach. The five wins surpass last year's total of four. Bach, 5 feet 7, is averaging 11.5 points, six rebounds and two assists per game. Megan's younger sister Caitlina, a 5-11 freshman, also has become a force as a post player averaging a team-leading 13.5 points and 8.5 rebounds. How do you deal with a 5-11 freshman sister who is already a star? It's great. It provides me with some support inside, which I'm not used to having.

Yesterday, their biggest challenge yet came against a team from Colorado, a team that describes itself as farmers.It was a slam dunk. They won 49 to 26, and are now in the Sweet 16.But this is not college basketball, it's middle school academics. The three-pointers were correctly answered questions that ranged from politics to science to math.

In the first five years of the Maryland Crab Bowl senior all-star game, the Baltimore-area team has failed to win consecutive games. This year's squad will have a chance start a winning streak after last year's beat the Washington, D.C.-area seniors 28-7, led by former Gilman safety Wyatt Dickerson's two first half interceptions and touchdowns from Stephen Scott (Poly), Garrett Bean (Westminster), Michael Anderson (Howard) and Isaiah Gills (Harford Tech). But with a new crop of seniors, Baltimore coach Sean Murphy - who led Archbishop Curley to a 9-2 record this year - said he expects the sixth Crab Bowl on Saturday be completely different.
