Given the way the film "The Hours" has created renewed interest in Virginia Woolf, Sarah Ruhl's adaptation of "Orlando" at the Actors' Gang seems sagely timed. Happily, this West Coast premiere staging of Woolf's epic 1928 time-traveling gender-bender is excellent theater as well, scoring an elegant, seamless bull's-eye. "Orlando" was inspired by Woolf's passion for Vita Sackville-West.

Regarding Mike Downey's column (May 7) on nicknames for new sports franchises, I encourage him to look on the bright side, to a day when: --Five games into their inaugural season, the new basketball team in Miami is so bad that no one wants to come out and watch them play. The headline: "Fans Turn on the Heat." --The Lakers go into Orlando to play and Earvin Johnson has an incredible night. Final score: Magic (the man) 101, Magic (the team) 89. --Doug Moe, as the coach of the expansion team in Charlotte, bemoans the fact that his team folds in the clutch, game after game.

Raj Bhathal is living the American dream in more ways than one. As owner of a pro football team, the Newport Beach resident finds himself in one of the most select and sought-after clubs in the nation. Bhathal's team is the World League's Orlando Thunder. "It's really exciting," Bhathal said. "I've been in business for 26 years and have been very successful and this new venture is great."

For the men, the biggest challenge comes first. They open on July 20 at Legion Field in Birmingham, Ala., against Argentina, one of the tournament favorites. The U.S.
