With TVs on the walls, in the booths and hanging from the ceiling, the Field House in Canton is a wonderful place to have a few beers and watch multiple games at once. On a recent visit, however, some of the food played third-string to the entertainment and libations. The enormous space, which used to be Ray Lewis' Full Moon BBQ, gives off a steak house-meets-frat house vibe: High-backed leather booths and college banners abound. Our first server was a bartender who, upon being asked whether the "local calamari" ($10)

They hunkered down in front of the TV for the Super Bowl, just another crowd of football fans munching chips and waving plastic cups -- except that they were smack dab in, of all places, the middle of a Baptist church.The 500-member Faith Baptist Church of Glen Burnie figured they couldn't beat Super Bowl fervor -- so they'd sanctify it. Three big-screen TVs and a table of snacks provided the atmosphere, and church members crowded into the fellowship hall for both Super Bowl watching and Bible-reading.

The first thought in Nino Germano's mind when he woke up yesterday was not the homemade pasta or savory sauces he would cook up in his Little Italy restaurant. It was soccer. "First thing I did, I put on my lucky jersey," Germano said, flaunting the blue shirt that he's worn for all of Italy's World Cup soccer matches. "I'm not washing it until it's over." Native Italians and soccer fanatics crowded around the TV in Germano's La Scala restaurant to bite their nails, jump out of their chairs and thump each other on the back as the Italian team trounced Ukraine and advanced to the World Cup semifinals.

Oates too soft on RipkenI'm sure I express the sentiments of many fans when I say Cal Ripken Jr. is not a team player. I say this because many games have been lost because he will not give up the third batting position. Practically every time he comes to bat, there are men in scoring position. He either strikes out or hits into a double play.Since Johnny Oates doesn't have the guts to pinch hit for him, Ripken should ask to be placed in the last position or take a rest. A team player plays to win.I believe the Orioles would be two or three games from first place if Oates would do his job and move Cal out of the third batting position.

If you're like me, you've been reading about the economy and as a result are getting a little worried. That 401(k) has been sinking like the Orioles after the Fourth of July, right? And so now we've got guys in Washington talking about economic stimulus packages and the Fed cutting interest rates so that half the country isn't forced to live in refrigerator cartons over steam vents. But, you know, after giving it a little thought, like between breakfast and lunch, I think I have a solution for what ails the economy.

HOW FITTING it was that baseball's All-Star Game ended with a sibling's kiss Tuesday night, a called tie that so accurately reflected the crippling stasis that dogs America's game. Actually, stasis may be too flattering. How does deterioration sound? Or slow rot? The rain of boos that showered Commissioner Bud Selig after he ended the midseason interleague contest represented a mere cloudburst among a much more complex system of turbulent disaffection between those who watch the game and those who play, manage and run it. The truth is, baseball as a game is not totally unhealthy these days.

Instead of coaching their top-15 teams in a battle for first place, Centennial's Gail Purcell and Hammond's Gay Petrlik spent yesterday afternoon officiating the JV game between their schools.That's what happens when officials don't show up.One official did arrive at Hammond thirty minutes after the scheduled 3: 30 p.m. start. But because the game has county title implications, both coaches wanted two officials. After a 45-minute wait, a decision was made to play the JV game, and postpone the varsity game to 3: 30 today.

PRE-GAME TL Too long. Will someone please explain why Ryan Seacrest is all over radio and TV these days? We simply don't get it. We needed a nap after the pre-game activities so we were able to stay up and watch the game. Moment of truth: Fox analyst Terry Bradshaw admitting how "butt ugly" he was next to Tom Brady during their interview. No truer words were spoken yesterday. Alicia Keys was a fine choice to perform before the game. Anything to get Seacrest off the stage. Did we really need a reading of the Declaration of Independence?

My husband and I were standing in an enormous human bottleneck outside Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field, waiting to clear security and take our seats at last month's Army-Navy game - President Bush was attending - when we came to the same conclusion. We'd driven a little over two hours to get there, and then we sat in traffic for 45 minutes. While waiting to go through the metal detectors, we missed all the pre-game pageantry, the kickoff and the first score. We were cold and hungry.

On the day the moving vans showed up at Government House, Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. made one last visit to the other piece of prime real estate that comes with the job: the skybox at M&T Bank Stadium. Ehrlich is the first bona fide jock to occupy Maryland's governor's mansion in decades at least, and the former captain of his high school and college football teams wasn't about to miss the Ravens' playoff game with the Indianapolis Colts. But if the truth must be known, he said, he would just as soon have skipped the trip to the stadium and watched it on TV. "When I want to watch a game, I want to watch the game," Ehrlich said as he walked into the State of Maryland's box yesterday.

LAS VEGAS -- Dennis Kelley, a nurse from Pittsburgh, came prepared for Super Bowl Sunday at Caesars Palace. Kelley had his Ben Roethlisberger jersey. He wore his gold football pants. He even pulled on his throwback Steelers leather helmet. And he had a pillow. If you want a good perch to watch the Super Bowl here, you better have a game plan. Kelley's strategy was to get to the Caesars Palace sports and race book, one of Vegas' premier spots to watch the game, early enough to save seats for his fiancee and her aunt.

IT WAS big, almost as big as the girl waving it over her head. It was bright orange with black lettering, and it read, "Welcome Back Raffy." It was held aloft behind the Orioles' dugout about two hours before the first pitch at Camden Yards last night, and it was the first sign, no pun intended, that things were back to normal. Rafael Palmeiro had returned, he had finally spoken (but on the advice of my attorney, I can't tell you what he said), and he was embraced, at least by those who got to the ballpark early enough for batting practice.
