The NCAA's fastest-growing sport heightened its profile in Baltimore yesterday, as Loyola ran past Towson State, 6-1, in a women's soccer match between two first-year teams.It was the first home game for Loyola, and the first game ever for Towson State, two of the more than 30 colleges nationwide that added the sport this year. Only 77 colleges had women's soccer in 1981, but the roll has swelled to 380 with the addition of yesterday's new rivals and similar fledgling programs at Mount St. Mary's and Johns Hopkins.

Unlike the typical kid-carting weekend chauffeurs that do the cheering, Nicole Grinspoon is a soccer mom from an unconventional side, still determined to keep her life as normal as possible. This is her normal: being married with a toddler; taking 19 credits this semester at UMBC, where she's a starting forward for the women's soccer team; interning twice per week at the Maryland Public Defender's Office; and finding a night or two to wait tables. A rare chance to relax comes in the locker room before each home game, when the 21-year-old makes sure to save a little extra time to just sit and listen to music.

BEIJING - A storied era in U.S. women's soccer ended when Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy and other pioneers retired as Olympic champions after the Athens Games, but another promising era might have dawned yesterday on a soggy field at Workers' Stadium. The U.S. women won their third gold medal awarded for women's soccer in four Olympic tournaments by edging Brazil, 1-0, on midfielder Carli Lloyd's extra-time goal. The U.S. team had defeated Brazil in Athens, also in overtime, but this team has a different roster and is less famous than its predecessor.

That childhood game of "Telephone" has nothing on the ancient and cruel tradition of the post-competition news conference. Questions and answers must be translated into anywhere from three to 12 languages. By the time the bronze-medal winner gets to answer, no one can remember the question. By the time the athlete responds, we've already moved on to the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Like "Telephone," where messages whispered from one child to another become garbled, something always gets lost in the news conference translation.
