Almost as if he's required to be quirky, given that he's a left-handed reliever and it's practically law, Orioles closer George Sherrill keeps every memo and sheet of paper distributed by the team. Rather than taking a quick glance and tossing them in the nearest trash receptacle, he tapes one edge to the next and hangs them at his locker, creating the impression that he's more interested in saving trees than games. Sherrill has performed this one-man crusade against waste since his days in Winnipeg, where a guy apparently can learn a lot more than how to stay warm and not surrender his dream of pitching in the majors.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - When the lights came up and a long ovation ended, former President Bill Clinton must have been taken aback by the sight of all those bright red seat backs. Presidents do not speak to empty chairs. But Clinton spoke to almost 900 of them here one night this week. More than a third of the 2,305 seats in Centennial Concert Hall went unsold for Clinton's Tuesday night lecture urging nations to cooperate to cure disease, eradicate poverty and battle terrorism. And a few seats were vacated, as the lights came on, by people eager to beat the rush to the coat-check room as Clinton prepared to field questions.

The last time Baltimore and Winnipeg met in a Canadian Football League game, an Eastern Division title was on the line, ++ the weather was brutally cold and windy, and the visitors from Baltimore got a memorable taste of Canadian nationalism.Eight months later, the picture has changed drastically. The Baltimore Stallions are the class of the CFL's new, five-team Southern Division of U.S.-based teams. The Blue Bombers, trying to recover from the loss of quarterback Matt Dunigan to free agency, are stumbling in the Northern Division.

Toronto got its wish, Ottawa got its free pass and Baltimore got second place.Consider the stage set for Baltimore's first appearance in the CFL playoffs.And once again, the Eastern Division path to the Nov. 27 Grey Cup runs through Winnipeg. Or, as Baltimore rush end Elfrid Payton calls it, "Winter-peg."The CFLs (12-6) will make their postseason splash Saturday at 4 p.m. against the Toronto Argonauts (7-11) in Memorial Stadium.That pairing was determined yesterday, when the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (13-6)

WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- It was the first game of an 84-game season, but for the Washington Capitals, it was one that shouldn't have gotten away.They sat around in this windy, central plains city for three days plotting victory. And then, when they had it in their hands, when they had a 4-3 lead with 10:07 gone in the third period, they let it slip away.That was the hard part. That's what had Caps coach Terry Murray looking a little grim last night, after his Caps lost to the Winnipeg Jets, 6-4, before a sellout crowd of 15,363 at the Winnipeg Arena.

Right wing John Druce knew he might not be in the plans of the Washington Capitals. Yesterday afternoon, he sat in the locker room after practice and talked about how he had "to make the Caps want me." He hoped he could pull it off tonight and tomorrow in the last two exhibition games of the NHL preseason.Instead, when the Caps play the Skipjacks, their AHL farm team, tonight at the Arena, Druce will be packing for Winnipeg.Last night, Druce was traded to the Jets for right wing Pat Elynuik, who has scored at least 25 goals in each of the last four seasons.

Through the years, my job as a sports reporter has taken me to a lot of interesting places -- New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl, Quebec and Montreal for hockey games, San Francisco for a Super Bowl, even to London for Wimbledon.Most of the time, my friends willingly suggest they slip into my suitcase or come along as a photographer. But when the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League opened their season in Winnipeg, Manitoba, last fall, no one offered to join me."Good luck," said one. "Stay warm."

This past Sunday, Winnie the Pooh -- the fictional yellow bear who's inspired such philosophical texts as The Tao of Pooh, Pooh and the Philosophers and Postmodern Pooh -- turned 75. The Havre de Grace Branch Library is celebrating with a belated birthday bash Monday, featuring games, stories and treats. Now most of us know a thing or two about Pooh: He eats "hunny" by the fistful; he hangs out with a miniature pig, a bouncing tiger and a donkey; and he possesses a rather irrational fear of imaginary "Woozles," "Heffalumps" and "Jagulars."

The Baltimore Stallions put the finishing touches on one of the better regular seasons in Canadian Football League history yesterday at Memorial Stadium.The Stallions did it against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, in what has become typical fashion lately, a 24-17 victory before 29,310 that wasn't flashy or impressive, merely efficient.After a first half in which their offense sputtered most of the time, the Stallions took control by scoring touchdowns on their first two possessions of the third quarter to take a 20-3 lead.

His new teammates kid him about his advancing age, and at 31 slotback Gerald Alphin is getting up there in football years. But since joining the Baltimore Stallions a month ago, Alphin feels younger by the day.Alphin sits in the Stallions' locker room, noting the team's youthful talent. He talks excitedly about the chance to provide veteran help to its Grey Cup championship push, which shifts into overdrive in the Canadian Football League playoffs next weekend. Based on the way he has performed in his first three games in a Baltimore uniform, Alphin has plenty left to give.

It was originally designed to be a hockey trophy, but became the prize for the Rugby Football Championship of Canada.This sterling silver trophy stands 33 inches high and is mounted on a base of black-lacquered aluminum to which engraved silver plates are added. The Cup itself is 13 inches high.It was originally open to teams registered with Canadian Rugby Union.

Three months ago, when they suffered a 43-7 blowout in Baltimore, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers looked nothing like a playoff team. Now, the Blue Bombers have gone through so many personnel changes they hardly resemble the team that began the 1995 season.Due to a combination of injuries, trades and free-agent signings, Winnipeg has dressed 75 players this year, or the equivalent of two active rosters. In Monday's 31-20 loss in Toronto, the Blue Bombers started the same 12 players on offense for the second straight game, the first time that has happened this year.
