Greg Lee did two very adult things last year--he turned 30 and he got married. But Lee's the first to admit he's still really a kid at heart. "I still think I am probably 12 or 13 years old," explains the effusive host of PBS' hit kids' game show "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?" "That time to me is a time of life which can be really exciting-- finding out who you are and what you are about," Lee says. "You want to eat everything up and soak everything up. I love that."

To the average sports fan, it's not exactly Koufax and Drysdale returning to Chavez Ravine. But on the beach, the names Selznick and Vogelsang and Von Hagen and Menges also conjure visions of heroic summers long ago. They played volleyball.

In late January, Larry Farmer was still in Kuwait, where he coaches and oversees the development of basketball. But after returning to Los Angeles on Jan. 29, he figured it was time to get going on something he had wanted to pursue for some time--broadcasting. His previous experience consisted of two 1987 Denver Nugget telecasts when, on Feb. 8, he worked as a commentator on an ESPN telecast of a Cal State Long Beach-Nevada Las Vegas game. CBS was impressed.
