Don't talk to Jairo Penaranda if you're looking for laughs. He's not funny at all. "Jairo is a very serious guy," said Bob Dunivant, Penaranda's coach at Burroughs High in Burbank from 1972-75. "He was very hard-working. There wasn't too much humor with Jairo (pronounced HI-row)." Penaranda is, however, a sound choice if you're interested in football. The former standout running back for Burroughs played at UCLA and then in the NFL. He is now a coach with the Rams.

John Robinson came out a winner in this winter's power struggle with the Rams' front office when owner Georgia Frontiere extended his contract and expanded his control over the team. The losers were announced Wednesday at Ram Park: Defensive coordinator Fritz Shurmur and five other Ram defensive assistant coaches were fired. It was hardly a surprise for a team that finished 5-11.

The last straw in the Rams' dismal 1990 special teams' season was their last effort against New Orleans, the final testimony illustrating exactly how far they had fallen. Given one more chance to pin the Saints deep in their own territory after tying the game with a few minutes left, the Rams' kickoff coverage team failed resoundingly in that game last December. Mike Lansford's kick was supposed to be high and angled, but instead sailed down the middle of the field, barely past the Saints' 20.

If you're in Orange County and want to laugh, there are several places to go. Anaheim Stadium, to watch the Angels, for example. Or go to Disneyland and check out the admission prices. Both provide amusement. But don't talk to Jairo Penaranda. He is not very funny at all. "Jairo is a very serious guy," said Bob Dunivant, Penaranda's coach at Burroughs High in Burbank from 1972-75. "He was very hard-working. There wasn't too much humor with Jairo (pronounced HY-row)."

So, when the Rams' journey from the NFC title game to an 11-loss season ended, the team's most renowned and most lavishly rewarded soldier stood up, gathered reporters to his locker and delivered his own indictment of the front office.
