A star lacrosse player turned the world topsy-turvy Tuesday for a group of dyslexic middle schoolers. "It may be difficult for you guys to understand now, but a learning disability can be a gift," Paul Rabil told a gathering of about 100 students at the Jemicy School in Owings Mills. Rabil, 27, said his own struggles with auditory processing disorder in the classroom helped him on the athletic field, where he became a three-time first-team All-American midfielder at Johns Hopkins and, now, a standout with the Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse.

An article in Tuesday's sports section incorrectly identified a charity that received proceeds from a celebrity golf tournament for which Baltimore Ravens player Tony Siragusa was host. The recipient was the Grant-A-Wish Foundation, which benefits children with life-threatening illnesses.The Sun regrets the errors.Ravens defensive tackle Tony Siragusa fights off the block of center Jeff Mitchell. In an instant, he rumbles by him and into the backfield in pursuit of receiver Jermaine Lewis, foiling a reverse play and stopping just short of clobbering Lewis.

It's Week Two of our new feature giving Ravens fans and readers of Z on TV a forum to talk about the weekly telecast and my Sunday-night ( online )/Monday-morning (print) reviews of TV coverage. Here are some of the comments written in response to the Fox Sports telecast Sunday, featuring Kenny Albert (play-by-play), Daryl Johnston (analyst) and Tony Siragusa (sideline) -- and my review of it. You can read my review here . Howard in Easton writes: David--I really enjoy your critiques of TV coverage of Ravens games.

KENILWORTH, N.J. -- Did Tony Siragusa grow up in this north-central New Jersey town or on the set of "GoodFellas"?Let's meet the hometown crew: Joey "Big Nose," Louie "The Lip," Billy "Pies," Vinny "Hacksaw," Joe "Zorro."Oh, and don't forget Siragusa's dog, Sambuca.If listening to many athletes is the verbal equivalent of vanilla ice cream, then the sound bites served up by Siragusa, the Ravens' biggest free-agent acquisition this off-season, are tasty cannoli.For example, listen to Siragusa on the ethnic makeup of Kenilworth: "How heavy is the Italian population here?

The Ravens see a couple of reasons why the Washington Redskins would want to run the ball Sunday. But the Ravens provide about 670 big suggestions why they shouldn't. With Redskins star receiver Michael Westbrook out for the season and veteran wide-out Irving Fryar out for Sunday, the Ravens are anticipating a run-first attack with featured back Stephen Davis. It's a challenge that has the Ravens licking their chops, especially their defensive tackles - 340-pound Tony Siragusa and 330-pound Sam Adams - a total of 670 pounds.

The winners..."[Baltimore] got the short end of the stick, not necessarily from the Colts, but from the league in general. They wanted a little of it back. Today, I hope they got it."

Thumbs up: Cornerback Alvin Porter had an impressive diving interception in full-team drills. A few plays later, Porter nearly came up with another. Thumbs down: No need. Brian Billick ended practice almost a half-hour early, and praised the tempo and intensity of his team, which does look ready for a game after having few detectable mistakes. Trainer's room: Defensive tackle Tony Siragusa (knee) did not practice. Safeties Pete Destefano (ankle) and Corey Harris (family emergency) missed practice.

Nobody should take seriously Rex Ryan's comments about rookie defensive end Paul Kruger wearing No. 99, the jersey of former Ravens standout Michael McCrary. Ryan and all of his former defensive linemen from the 2000 Super Bowl team were very close. In fact, when the Ravens fired head coach Brian Billick, Tony Siragusa, Rob Burnett and Michael McCrary all lobbied owner Steve Bisciotti to make Ryan the next Ravens head coach. I knew Rex Ryan couldn't play the Ravens without some crazy comment.

The Fox telecast of the Baltimore Ravens' loss Sunday was far from perfect, but what a vast improvement over any coverage provided this season by CBS Sports. I am sure some fans are going to insist Fox analyst Daryl Johnston doesn't like the Ravens, or somehow “has it in” for them. But what a relief it was to hear someone call out Ravens coach John Harbaugh for his bad decisions Sunday. Johnston, who seemed about 10,000 times more focused in his thinking and crisp in his analysis than Dan Fouts or Dan Dierdorf has even been for CBS, laid the wood to Harbaugh's first-half miscues both at the time they were made and at the end of the game.

Mild-mannered body shop owner by most days, outrageously wigged Purple Dame on Ravens gamedays - that's the story of Severn's Cindy Pierce. And a bust of her in the Pro Football Hall of Fame proves it. "Oh, yeah. It was very cool," Pierce, 46, says of the day last February when she was feted at a ceremony before the Super Bowl and given a copy of the bust that was placed in the Hall of Fame in nearby Canton - one of five "Boldest Fans" honored this year. Still, Pierce, whose trademark purple wigs help her stand out in a stadium full of Ravens fans, acknowledges that she wasn't in much of a celebratory mood.

The Ravens aren't expected to take a cannonball dive into the talent pool when free agency begins Tuesday at 4 p.m. So here are my condolences in advance if you purchased a custom-made, purple Vincent Jackson or Mario Williams jersey in anticipation of the Ravens signing one of those stars this offseason. Making a splash by throwing around cash on talent from other teams isn't usually their style, though that's not to say that the Ravens haven't made significant signings in their 16-year, going-on-17-year history.

Watching video, Terrence Cody's eyes gloss over the other members of the Ravens' defense until he homes in on a familiar figure. Kelly Gregg usually isn't hard to find. He's the short and squatty guy in the middle of everything, constantly keeping his feet, fighting to surge forward and attracting attention that opponents would prefer paying to Haloti Ngata, Ray Lewis or Terrell Suggs. Gregg was Cody's teammate last season, but now the Ravens' current starting nose tackle watches the team's former one regularly on film, analyzing his footwork and marveling at the leverage he generates while taking on blocks by significantly bigger men. "Kelly can tell if somebody is pulling or not and if it's going to be a run or pass.

They came back to M&T Bank Stadium Sunday looking a little older and grayer, some looking as if they hadn't missed too many buffets and others as if they had joint-replacement surgery scheduled in the morning. Didn't matter. Oh, did the sell-out crowd show them some love. These were the Super Bowl XXXV-champion Ravens, some 35 members of that team, anyway, in town to celebrate the 10th anniversary of that title. They formed a gantlet during the pre-game introductions and slapped hands with the current Ravens as they raced out of the tunnel.

Kelly Gregg has turned what he calls a "one-night stand" into a successful career. A castoff from two previous franchises, Gregg spent the 2000 season -- his first with the Ravens -- on the practice squad and watched the Ravens win the Super Bowl. Backing up Rob Burnett, Tony Siragusa and Larry Webster, Gregg eventually demonstrated the talent and work ethic to become an NFL everyday starter since 2002. "I came into the league as a one-night stand and somebody picked me up," recalled Gregg, who is entering his 11th season.
