South Coast League girls' soccer coaches found the perfect way to remain friends as the season heats up: sit down together and chow. The coaches met Wednesday night at a Laguna Hills restaurant for what turned out to be nearly five hours of food and chit-chat. The annual event--to promote sportsmanship and ease competitive tensions--was initiated years ago by El Toro Coach Kerry Krause. "What's nice is you find out everyone's pretty much the same," Krause says.

Shaquille O'Neal, who has expressed a desire to be traded since the Lakers lost in the NBA Finals this month, and his wife, Shaunie, are putting their home in a gated community in the Beverly Hills area on the market at $7.5 million. The 32-year-old center has owned his home since 1997, a year after he became a free agent and joined the Lakers with a $120-million contract. The house was built in 1993. The O'Neals just completed an extensive remodel.

Tonight, when the cheering stops, odds are Brant Theurer will still be in a coma. But even though Brant remains confined to the antiseptic stillness of his hospital room--a world away from the adolescent frenzy of a high school football field--the 17-year-old former fullback of Lancaster's Paraclete Spirits never misses a game.

Forty-seven dutiful Mighty Ducks showed up at the Anaheim Doubletree Hotel for their preseason physicals Tuesday. Of course, the only person anyone cared to talk about was the player who wasn't there. Paul Kariya will be the story on the Mighty Ducks until (or if) he signs a new contract. And when and if he shows up, he'll be the story. Basically, this season is about Kariya, how his negotiations are handled and how he gets along with new Coach Pierre Page.

If there were an Oscar category for ultralow-budget movies with all-volunteer casts produced, written and directed by unknown pastors, "Facing the Giants" would handily be nominated. But stacked against its competition in theaters, "Facing the Giants" feels like an overly earnest church sketch of the type many evangelical congregations use as a teaching tool on Sunday between the worship music and pastor's message.

A network's ways can be mysterious. "Coach" is finally coming off the bench. In what's being billed as a sneak preview, the ABC comedy premieres at 9:30 tonight (on Channels 7, 3, 10 and 42), where it's expected to get a huge sampling following the hit "Roseanne." "Coach" then reappears in its regular time slot at 9 p.m. Wednesday. So far, so good, except that Wednesday's second episode is actually the pilot, which sets up the series and tonight's first episode.

NewCom Inc. in Westlake Village has missed the holiday sales season with its WebPal device for linking televisions to the Internet because it did not ship the product to retailers. Sonia Kiarashi, NewCom's vice president for sales and marketing, said the delay was due to Microsoft Corp.'s aggressive pricing of a competing product. "We're coming up with a game plan," she said. "I don't have a specific date." NewCom, which distributes computer accessories, bet heavily on WebPal's success.

The game plan was simple and everyone at Glover Stadium knew what it was. The final result, though, was so easy it was downright shocking. Valencia defeated Anaheim, 14-0, Friday night and firmly put itself back in the hunt for another Orange League title.

Running back Eric Dickerson and quarterback Dieter Brock revealed the Rams' game plan for Saturday's divisional playoff against the Dallas Cowboys at Anaheim Stadium. "I know we're gonna run the football," Dickerson said Thursday. "That's our plan: run the football." In a separate interview, Brock said: "We've got to try to make some big plays. We've got to go in with the idea of winning and not sitting back and hoping the other team loses." Coach John Robinson endorsed both plans.
