The U.S. soccer team, which needs a victory here today against Guatemala after a sputtering start in its attempt to qualify for the 1990 World Cup, might have gained the confidence it lacked by winning the Marlboro Cup of New York, which actually was held in New Jersey. Then again, the victories over Benfica of Portugal and Peru's National team two weeks ago might have had less to do with the U.S. team's skill than its home-field advantage. The field at the Meadowlands was covered with artificial turf, which is foreign to virtually every team outside North America.

Some shotputters and discus throwers who were scheduled to compete in the Pepsi Invitational at UCLA June 5 just said no--not to drugs but to the meet's promoter, Al Franken. After Franken learned last Friday that The Athletics Congress, which governs track and field in the United States, had decided to conduct testing for performance-enhancing drugs at the meet, he said he informed all of the throwers or their coaches.

Randy Harvey's suggestion that the Dodgers retire Fernando Valenzuela's number [Aug. 19] is ridiculous. Fernandomania was exciting and he gave Dodger fans some good memories. However, he certainly doesn't belong with Koufax and Drysdale as the only pitchers in Dodger history to have their numbers retired. ALAN MATIS Sherman Oaks

I used to think that the only two groups of people who desperately wanted a professional football team in Los Angeles, no matter what it cost the taxpayers, were fools and sportswriters. After reading Randy Harvey's column Thursday, I now know that those two groups are one and the same. DAVID ALLSPAW Valley Village

BEIJING -- It was 3 a.m., and three American reporters were the only people left in the press room at Workers' Stadium after the U.S. beat Brazil to win the women's Olympic soccer tournament. As we prepared to leave, we were approached by some of the volunteers who had been working in the press room. We were the last people remaining after the last game at that venue, they explained, and they wanted to remember the moment. Would we be kind enough to pose for pictures with them?

BEIJING -- Fame is a strange beast, my friend. The world of gossip journalism is freaking out right now, trying to figure out whether Michael Phelps has a girlfriend. He is, in some ways, the David Beckham of the sporting world at the moment. The British tabloids are saying that he's dating model Lily Donaldson or swimmer Amanda Beard, and TMZ.com has sent us a slew of e-mails, trying to confirm a rumor it heard that it's another swimmer. (Dear TMZ: Seriously, you could not be further off the mark.

It's so easy for readers to sit at kitchen tables, hide behind their computers and complain about someone who puts himself out there every week. I may not always agree with what Bill Plaschke says, but I have great admiration for the courage it takes him to speak his mind, openly, in a huge public forum, where he is subject to constant criticism. I "tripped" over Plaschke several years ago while accidentally opening the sports page, and I stayed. Long after the scores have been forgotten and the titles blurred, his stories, which touch hearts, make people feel, make them think, remain.

According to Randy Harvey in his recent piece on Kelli White, "White Because Kelli was ranked third and fourth in the world in the 200 meters in 2001 and 2002 (and 10th in the 100 in 2001), and a bronze medalist in the 2001 world championships in the 200, and on our gold-medal winning team in the 400 relay, I'm assuming that Mr. Harvey considers Marion Jones the only outstanding sprinter in the world. I resent Mr. Harvey's insinuation that Kelli's performances are the result of drug use. I have no idea if she was anything but negligent in her not mentioning the use of an unbanned drug to the IAAF, but because of track and field's commitment to stop drug use (unlike other sports)

Chick Hearn's so-called "slip of the tongue" would quietly and quickly be in the refrigerator if over-reactors like Randy Harvey would not devote Page 2 space to such a trivial, innocuous comment.
