Maybe Tom Hernandez has stopped being surprised about the seemingly endless supply of talented running backs that show up at San Fernando High. One of this year's prodigies is sophomore running back-defensive back LaKarlos Townsend, who is battling for playing time on both sides of the ball.

Normally, Michael Wynn is the most recognizable player in the San Fernando High backfield. On Friday night, however, he was a tough guy to spot, what with his face mask lodged into the turf and all. Crespi's Christian Fauria, Frank Romano and Joe Mahoney were much easier to identify. They were the ones celebrating over Wynn's fallen body after they combined to sack the All-City Section quarterback five times en route to a 17-7 nonleague victory over the fourth-ranked Tigers at Pierce College.

Newsday excerpted a scouting report on post-World Series endorsements by an advertising agency, Foote, Cone & Belding-San Francisco. On the Athletics: Jose Canseco: Ultimate power symbol. Good looking. Not many Latin athletes to compete with. Speaks well, but has nothing to say. Behavior modification needed here. Rickey Henderson: Unique skills. Good looking. Speaks well. Good style. Presence. 'A' material. Mark McGwire: State-of-the-art "American" for advertisers.

The Angels did not trade for Robert Fick this summer, but he would be thrilled if they did this winter. Fick, the Detroit Tigers' only All-Star this season, could provide an appealing alternative to Brad Fullmer at designated hitter next season. The Angels inquired about Fick last month, before they acquired outfielder Alex Ochoa. But the Tigers would not have traded him for the price the Angels paid for Ochoa--backup catcher Jorge Fabregas and two non-prospect minor leaguers.

In "The Matador," a delightfully sly diversion, Pierce Brosnan breaks the mold and turns in what might be considered the performance of his career, the kind of witty, relaxed star portrayal that recalls those of Cary Grant and other Golden Era legends. Setting him up to perfection is Greg Kinnear, every bit as amusing and assured. As if this weren't enough, Hope Davis, one of the most protean young actresses working in films, lends further sparkle and drollery.
