Brad Kearns knew there was a window, but he wasn't sure if he could squeeze through. Kearns, of Cool, Calif., figures he is about 1 minute 40 seconds faster than Laguna Beach's Brett Rose in the 10-kilometer run portion of a triathlon. And Rose had pedaled into the transition area at Lake Mission Viejo exactly 1:38 ahead of him Sunday morning after two-thirds of the Orange County Performing Arts Center Triathlon. "I was worried," Kearns said.

Jerry Rice's temper tantrum after his pass-catching streak ended (in a game his team won) is a great lesson about what's really important in sports: "It's not whether you win or lose, its how many records you claim." Brad Kearns Auburn If there are any NFL players who are truly sincere about honoring the memory of Pat Tillman, they can always follow in Tillman's footsteps and enlist. Any takers?

Anyone who thinks Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is too old to run up and down court with other players should remember he shares the same age (38) with the fastest distance runner on earth, Carlos Lopes of Portugal. BRAD KEARNS Woodland Hills

Aside from a few "bonus baby" baseball players, not many county athletes can say they went professional right out of high school. But 18-year-old Kerry Classen can. A year ago, Classen was an above-average cross-country runner and swimmer at Mission Viejo High. Today, Classen is making fast tracks as a professional triathlete. On July 21, Classen surprised several top pros to win the Oxnard Triathlon and a prize of $2,000.

Congratulations to the Clippers' management, who finally discovered and disposed of the team's biggest burden: Carl Scheer. Maybe the Lakers can hire him so he can cause them problems and alleviate their boredom from winning too much. BRAD KEARNS Woodland Hills

I know what the Ram offense needs to perk up: Bill Bain at running back a la William (the Refrigerator) Perry. Then they would really measure up to the Bears. BRAD KEARNS Woodland Hills

After watching the Kings' Ron Duguay smash his head on the ice in a recent game, I have to wonder when the Kings, the National Hockey League and players who don't wear helmets are going to wise up. It seems to me it would be in everyone's best interest for the league or individual teams to make helmets mandatory. BRAD KEARNS Malibu

Did it ever occur to anyone that Howard Cosell might be trying to pull a fast one on the American public? He knows that littering his book with criticism will sell copies, and it sure doesn't bother him because we all know he lost his dignity long ago. Don't believe him when he says he never played the game. He's playing the hype game quite well. BRAD KEARNS Woodland Hills

This time, Brad Kearns of Malibu avoided all pitfalls en route to winning the San Diego International Triathlon Sunday. After finishing the one-kilometer swim at Spanish Landing in fifth place, Kearns took the lead a little more than halfway though the 30-kilometer bike segment on Cabrillo Memorial Drive. He never trailed thereafter and won the professional men's division in an unofficial 1 hour 31 minutes 8 seconds, well off Scott Tinley's record of 1:24:42. Tinley of Del Mar did not enter the race because he was competing in Japan.

Brad Kearns sensed victory. Only a few kilometers remained in the 40K bicycle leg of a triathlon in Cleveland last month when Kearns broke away from all but two competitors. And he believed he would be able to overcome those two in the final leg of the event, a 10-kilometer footrace. Suddenly, a pedal on his bicycle broke. Kearns spent 10 minutes trying in vain to repair the damage. He was forced to drop out of the race but completed the bicycle ride by pedaling with one foot.
