Chuck Gordon learned about hard work and responsibility while working with his hands. But it's in a game played with the feet that he puts those qualities on public display. Gordon, a 27-year-old former auto mechanic, is the top defender on the Cal State Northridge men's soccer team. A man among, if not boys, at least notably younger men, Gordon already had played soccer for four years when the youngest of his Matador teammates were born in 1978.

The slumping Cal State Northridge men's soccer team was sloppy and ineffective Thursday, losing, 3-0, to Cal State Dominguez Hills. "We were lackadaisical, we had no motivation, no desire," Northridge Coach Marwan Ass'ad said grimly. "Instead of playing simple, we lose the ball trying to make great plays." Northridge (1-3-1) last fall experienced its first losing season since 1982, and Ass'ad brought in 16 freshmen with hope of starting over.

DeMille-worthy epithet "The Most Expensive Movie Ever Made," star Kevin Costner said: "It's done and we've done our best." The Locale: A nearby parking lot was transformed to evoke the film's floating "atolls"--rusty sheet-metal walls, hanging nets, fountains, Jet Skis, oil drums and a fully rigged catamaran as the centerpiece.

Pete Wilson, and former Tennessee Gov. Lamar Alexander for starters. The Trends Research Institute, a business and sociological forecaster based in Rhinebeck, N.Y.

Coach Marwan Ass'ad is fired up, and anyone who knows him knows what that means. He is animated and loud. "A whole new team, man," shouted Ass'ad, the Cal State Northridge men's soccer coach. "I love new teams." Part of Ass'ad's zeal stems from a rollback of budgetary cutbacks imposed on the Northridge program earlier this year. Additional funds were pumped into soccer in June, boosting the team's scholarship level to close to where it was last season.
