Ask "Poison" Ivy Rorschach to describe the Cramps, and she'll tell you. "We're America's premier show band. We play blues and rock and roll. " It wasn't always so. When guitarist Rorschach first met singer Lux Interior in Sacramento, Calif., they were two twentysomething kids with a passion for rockabilly - the weirder the better. That was more than 15 years ago. "We were record collectors before we had a band," she says from her Boston hotel room. "We have a lot of rockabilly on really obscure labels.

Eagles safety Andre Waters was released yesterday from a Tampa, Fla., hospital after recovering from a concussion and a scary episode of body cramps. Waters was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa on Sunday night after suffering what his teammates believed were seizures as the team's airplane was being loaded with equipment at Tampa International Airport. Waters was kept at the hospital overnight, and coach Rich Kotite said a magnetic resonance imaging test was performed on Waters yesterday morning.

The Graf Machine is human, after all. Steffi Graf, the defending U.S. Open women's singles champion, has won 10 of the 12 tournaments she has entered this year. In the other two tourneys, she reached the finals. Graf is the player to beat in women's tennis. Yesterday, Graf won again, defeating No. 3 seed Gabriela Sabatini, 3-6, 6-4, 6-2 in an Open semifinal. But the question after the match was whether the 20-year-old West German will be well enough to face No. 2 seed Martina Navratilova in today's final.

Top-ranked Martina Hingis, bothered by cramps, retired in the third set against Patty Schnyder in the semifinals of the Grand Slam Cup yesterday in Munich, Germany. "I haven't had enough time to recover since the U.S. Open, but I also have to work on my fitness," Hingis said. "I have to get into better shape. " Hingis also cramped in the finals of the recent Fed Cup against Spain's Arantxa Sanchez Vicario. Hingis had won the first set, 7-5, and Schnyder took the second, also 7-5, in the first meeting between the Swiss teenagers.

Clarence Weatherspoon started to go up to block a shot in Saturday night's 119-108 loss in Charlotte but he never got there. "I thought he had a cramp," coach John Lucas said. Worse. Weatherspoon, who had been off to a terrific start in the Sixers' first two games, has a small tear in his right quadriceps and is expected to miss about a week to 10 days. That means he will not be available for tomorrow night's game against the Sacramento Kings at the CoreStates Spectrum.

Q: I've had a fungus infection of the large toes for at least 14 years. All efforts, topical and internal, have failed to kill it. My doctor says he can only slow the infection down, but cannot cure it. Any advice? A: Try griseofulvin (Fulvicin), a prescription oral anti-fungus remedy. You would have to take it for several months to eradicate the yeast, particularly in the nailbed. As an alternative, buy herbal La-Pacho tea (in health food stores or supermarkets), steep it and soak your feet in it twice a day. Q: What cause nocturnal leg cramps, and what can be done for them?

There's no doubt about it - muscle cramps can really crimp an athlete's style. They are so common that if you haven't experienced one yourself, you surely have seen someone else in teeth-clenching agony with one. Muscle cramps know no limits - they can strike pros and weekend warriors alike - so all athletes, regardless of their talent or abilities, need to guard against them. The precise cause of muscle cramps is unknown, except in the case of injuries, in which they act as a reflexive protective mechanism.

Food poisoning is a real danger during these hot summer days, because while the sun beats down on you, bacteria may be having a picnic in your potato salad. High-protein foods are often targeted by the bacteria staphylococcus aureus, a common cause of food poisoning, said Dr. Annette Reboli, an infectious disease specialist at Hahnemann University Hospital. Food preparation requires extra care in the summer, since bacteria tend to incubate more rapidly during warm, humid weather.

What would an opening day of training camp be without steamy, 90-degree weather, snapping head coaches and woozy, heat-drunk players? It wouldn't be right. So yesterday, the Eagles got what they always get in West Chester at this time of year. Just ask linebacker Paul Butcher, who probably isn't quite used to all of this. Butcher, a free-agent signee from the Lions, had to be taken off the field after the first practice yesterday. And coach Buddy Ryan noticed. Yes, he did. "Butcher, he's in terrible shape," Ryan barked.

It has been 16 days since the Eagles' Kevin Allen, victimized by cramps and dehydration, slept through a pair of training camp practices to move to the top of Buddy Ryan's verbal hit list. But as Allen said here yesterday, in an interview that broke his silence, which also started on July 21, his dehydration problem may be greater than anyone, including Ryan, realizes. And as the 23-year-old tackle also asserted, it already has caused him far more mental and physical pain than has been generated by such Ryanesque put- downs as,"No.

'Our whole bag, just like when we were 18, is to play hard and make the floor move. Hold on to something, because the Sonics are coming!" That's saxophonist Rob Lind's advice to anyone going to see the Sonics on Sunday night at the TLA. The band, which formed in Tacoma, Wash., in 1963, has just released its first album in nearly a half-century and is on its first tour of the United States. And these septuagenarians are ready to rock. Lind, guitarist Larry Parypa, and vocalist/keyboard player Jerry Roslie formed the Sonics in 1963, and they released three albums and a handful of singles between 1964 and 1967.

SATURDAY WAS a rough afternoon for Father Judge junior running back Yeedee Thaenrat. You try playing football after tweaking a muscle in your backside after your team's first play from scrimmage. Add a persistent downpour with occasional, chilly wind gusts, and you have the makings of a loooong day. And it could have been longer after Thaenrat's fourth-quarter fumble gave hope to the surging St. Anthony's squad from New York. "I was thinking to myself, 'I just lost the game for us,' " Thaenrat recalled.

Susan McHugh-Ringiewicz walked into the dorm room and sized it up: Three beds. Three desks. Three chairs. Two closets. Three girls. "And a lot of stuff," said the respiratory therapist from West Chester, who was moving her daughter, Kerry, into the University of Delaware on Saturday. Would everything fit? "We're still trying to figure that out," she said. With larger than expected freshmen classes, the University of Delaware in Newark and Rowan University in Glassboro, N.J. are requiring more students than ever before to triple up in dorm rooms traditionally designed for two. That can make for a tight squeeze - and some parents and students are less than thrilled.

This was a game of inches, but it was also a game of aches, pains, cramps, stomach viruses and, finally, exhaustion.Did we mention there was an instant-replay triple, too? What's funny is that the Phillies' 7-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers at Citizens Bank Park on Sunday afternoon should have been a laugher. Thanks in large part to Domonic Brown's eighth home run in eight games, the Phillies had a five-run lead after the first inning. The white-hot Brown contributed an RBI triple in the second, which ended with the Phillies up, 7-0. And that's how it stayed until the top of the eighth inning because the equally hot Cliff Lee held the Brewers scoreless while striking out a season-high 11 hitters through the first seven.

In the rich history of St. Joseph football, probably no player has embodied the program better than Anthony Giagunto. It's not just that Giagunto is tough. It's not just that he has a knack for making plays. It's not just that he's 19-0 as a starting quarterback, with two state titles under his belt and another on the way. It's that he's 5-foot-8. Maybe. And for a small school with a coach who's 5-foot-6 (another maybe), there's something extra-special about a diminutive quarterback who beats the bigger guys on a weekly basis.

Dow Chemical Co. chief executive Andrew N. Liveris has a pretty bleak assessment of the world's economy, predicting that it could take until 2014 for growth to return to a normal pace. Liveris said Thursday that deteriorating global business conditions caused a 34 percent drop in Dow Chemical's second-quarter net income. And he doesn't expect to see much improvement for the rest of this year. "The new reality is that this world is not in a normal growth mode," he told analysts on a conference call.

NEW YORK - Even if it turns out to be nothing, which Rafael Nadal insists was the case, the frightening scene in his postmatch interview Sunday will go down as memorable. Answering questions in Spanish, Nadal suddenly started grimacing in pain. He tilted his head back, covered his face with his arm. His face twisted in agony as he slid down in his chair, he motioned for help. After a few nervous moments with the trainers crowded around the table, Nadal popped back up. A simple leg cramp, he insisted.

Patti and Daisy would be so happy. Patti is my oldest hen, having recently turned 7. Daisy is my youngest, having recently celebrated her seventh week on the planet with a beakful of corn scratch and a contemplative session atop her perch. I try to give them a good life, and they in turn will give me eggs. What I wish I could tell them is that their 280 million sisters, give or take, are about to get better digs. Last Thursday, the Humane Society of the United States and the United Egg Producers announced an agreement to push for federal legislation that would change the way producers house and treat America's egg-laying chickens, a busy lot that pumps out more than 70 eggs per 100 chickens every day. While animal welfare isn't necessarily integral to sustainability, it certainly seems germane.

KISAI, Japan - The evacuated families in the school gym outside Tokyo are bound by their suffering to those in shelters closer to the disaster zone. Both lost homes, friends and livelihoods in the tsunami that pounded northeastern Japan last month. But the conditions they're living in as they try put their lives back together are markedly different. At the school in Kisai, a 90-minute drive north of Tokyo, masseurs tend to creaky joints. A bus arrives several times a day to ferry people to public baths.
