EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Today's game against the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants can answer a big question about the Ravens. Are they playoff caliber? "I don't know if we worry about that at this point in the season," tight end Todd Heap said. "We're going in to win this game. And we'll let people talk about that after that happens." Said linebacker Ray Lewis: "For us, it's just the next game up. We take the same approach with every game, and the guys do a great job with it."

WASHINGTON -- They don't teach the kind of pirouette Washington Mystics guard Nikki McCray did last night after her team's 74-71 WNBA win over the Charlotte Sting at any dance school.Truth be told, McCray's impromptu victory dance wasn't one a lot of players can manage, since most haven't experienced the kind of misery the Mystics have over their 1 1/2 years of existence."We deserved to win this game. We needed to win this game. It's like you reward a dog with a treat when it does good. This was our reward," said McCray, who had a game-high 26 points, including three three-pointers.

There's nothing quite like getting together with a few friends, assembling your troops and waging war in your parents' kitchen. That's what John Simpson of Ocean Township, N.J., does most weekends when he plays the tabletop battle game Warhammer 40K. He and his friends eschew Wii and PlayStation in favor of a 20-year-old board game. And even though there are Warhammer-themed computer games, fans like Simpson, 17, remain loyal. "I prefer the board game because you can do whatever you want," he says.

Plaxico Burress proclaims that the New York Giants will win the Super Bowl, and the media flock to him and his story as if he just invented a cure for Frank TV. Original, he isn't. Doesn't every big game in every sport include at least one guarantee? Even the small ones aren't immune to it. If this is considered fresh, so is the pair of socks I found under my bed (and I'm pretty sure they were there before I moved in). When wide receiver Roy Williams assured us last season that the Detroit Lions would beat the Chicago Bears in Week 2, part of his logic centered on how close they came to scoring 40 points in their opening loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

For tonight's 7: 35 game against the defending champion Cleveland Crunch at Baltimore Arena, the Blast is on the other end of the obstacle it faced last week. Now the Blast is the lower seed and, therefore, was awarded the opportunity to start the best-of-three series in the National Professional Soccer League's American Conference finals at home in front of thousands of its fans. "It is like us last week, when we had to start out in Philly," Blast captain Lance Johnson. "I don't think it's fair for the higher seed to have to start out on the road, but we'll take it. I think it definitely gives the lower seed the advantage.

Some of us have picked the Ravens. In fact, a lot of the national media types have picked the Ravens. Let's face it, there are a number of really compelling reasons to believe Baltimore's team will put the Colts in a Mayflower truck late this afternoon and send Indy back home in brown cardboard boxes. That said, the Colts can win this game. They have a puncher's chance. Actually, they have more than a puncher's chance. Here's how: Peyton Manning has to be great. Or at least really, really good, with an emphasis on flawless when it comes to turnovers.

COLLEGE PARK -- The students on campus haven't been shy about approaching Maryland junior guard D.J. Strawberry with their lone demand for the season: Beat Duke. "All of the students - even when the season started - they just go, `You gotta beat Duke,' " Strawberry said, laughing. "It seems like you can lose every game and beat Duke once or twice, and you had a great season." This one in particular could do wonders.

Today's games Motor City Bowl Boston College (8-4) vs. Toledo (9-4) When: 5 p.m. TV: ESPN About Boston College: This has been a pretty good season for the Eagles; then again, it also has been somewhat of a disappointment. A win over previously unbeaten Notre Dame was the highlight, but BC was 0-4 in its other games against bowl teams and Notre Dame was the only team it beat that finished with a winning record. Senior QB Brian St. Pierre has struggled at times. He has 15 TD passes but 17 interceptions.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- All week leading up to yesterday's game with North Carolina State, Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen bemoaned the Terps' collective misfortune this season with missed assignments here, bad bounces there and enough injuries to keep a MASH unit in business for years. However, for one chilly afternoon, the Terps got seemingly every possible piece of good luck to go along with perhaps their most complete team effort of the season in a convincing 37-0 blitzing of the Wolfpack at Carter-Finley Stadium.

College Park -- Maryland senior guard D.J. Strawberry smiled sheepishly yesterday when he admitted a fear inherent in some guards, especially younger ones. It's a fear of getting bruised, battered and whacked when competing for rebounds with the big men under the basket. Strawberry said that earlier in the season the Maryland guards "expected" their post players to take care of that responsibility. "We really didn't think we had to get in there as much," he said. "If something came off long, we'd probably get them, but we really weren't getting five people to the boards and boxing our men out. "We just have to get it in our minds that if we want to win games, we have to be able to rebound the ball, all five people including the point guard," he said.

The Ravens have announced that they will go all-black for today's game at M&T Bank Stadium, which can mean only one thing: They obviously hope to lull the Buffalo Bills into a false sense of security by impersonating the Pittsburgh Steelers. I can't think of any other explanation, since the Ravens were playing pretty good football in their regular uniforms and Brian Billick strikes me as an if-it's-not-broke-don't-fix-it kind of coach, but I'm not going to worry about it. The black jerseys do look cool, and the Ravens probably could beat the Bills wearing something from Victoria's Secret.

This may be the political season, but I'm not going to go negative after eking out a 7-6-1 record last week in my ongoing battle to outguess the oddsmakers and impress all of you with my amazing acumen against the spread. It's hardly amazing to finish one game over .500 (unless, of course, you're the Orioles), but it was quite an improvement over the previous week (5-11) and it improved my record to 3-0 in games involving the Ravens. In fact, last week's Ravens prediction should have come with The Twilight Zone theme as background music.

It is just before 7 a.m. on a Tuesday morning on a deserted field in Northwest Washington. Nearby homes have iron bars on their windows, trash swirls around an empty, overgrown parking lot - an unlikely venue for a congressional power powwow. But, one by one, clad in T-shirts and sweat pants, sleepy Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives gather. The goal: Figure out how to beat the Republicans. Not in a coming floor vote or election, but in the annual congressional baseball game.
