Trojan LenDale White's declaration that "me and Reggie" are the best running backs in the country, reminds me of when the Angels' Bo Belinsky concluded that "me and Dean"(referring to Dean Chance) were the majors' two best pitchers. We all remember what happened to Bo and Dean. All this nonsense will soon cease and the Bruins will once again reign supreme in Los Angeles. RALPH S. BRAX Lancaster You'd think by all the preseason talking that UCLA is doing that they'd be playing at Disneyland instead of the Rose Bowl.

Writers from around the Tribune Co. will  predict the winner of theU.S. Open, which starts Thursday at the Olympic Club in San Francisco. Check back throughout the day for their responses and give us your predictions in the comments section. Bill Dwyre, Los Angeles Times Steve Stricker will win the U.S. Open this week because San Francisco's Olympic Club is a fastidious course and Stricker is a fastidious player. Also, he is due. Think of his victory as a mirror-image to Darren Clarke's win at last year's British Open.

Having signed up for a 15th year of UCLA home football games, I motored to my alma mater's scrimmage at beautiful Spalding Field to seek answers about the promise of the coming season. But all I got were questions: Will Ben Olson be the quarterback and throw to the end zone rather than the sidelines? Why does the team look similar to last year's, with anemic running, sideways passes and unnecessary penalties? Who is our game-breaker? Why did a burly usher grab my arm, push me and tell me to "use the gate" as I tried to step around her?

At he Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, the white noise of 21st century life recedes as a Lexus hybrid SUV quietly carries visitors to their rooms, a collection of cottages that nestle along redwood-lined cliffs overlooking the Pacific. The cottages--"treehouses" clad in aged wood and set atop 9-foot poles in stands of Douglas fir; curved steel enclosures with the rusty patina of Richard Serra sculptures; and modern spaces with sod roofs and clean lines--blend into the landscape.

I am a 6-year-old boy. I am writing about Howard Rosenberg's article on toy commercials ("When Boys Will Be Boys and . . . ," Dec. 21). Howard, what does your mum feed you, strained quiche? That article was so wimpy I almost fell off my training wheels laughing. Everybody knows that us boys are smart and strong and tough, so we get the sports gear and war toys. Everybody knows that them girls are dumb and weak and passive, so they get the stuffed animals and other cute junk.

Whew. Finally. All even. Forty-two wins each. Twenty-three games remaining for both. Amid the dust stirred by the swatting of another irrelevant Eastern Conference gnat Tuesday night, an old friend appeared. This wasn't about the New Jersey Nets, it was about the Sacramento Kings. For the next six weeks, it's about the Sacramento Kings. The Lakers defeated the Nets on Tuesday, 101-92, in a game that sounded like a starter's pistol. Not because the Lakers blew an 18-point lead and needed late, lofted three-pointers from Derek Fisher and Devean George to catch their breath.

This is a thoroughly Victorian Queen Anne, right down to its wallpaper. The house, built in 1896, was restored by its owners, Harry Parashis and his wife, Letitia, who are art dealers and collectors with a gallery on Balboa Island in Newport Beach. Perhaps that's why they were drawn to the Victorian, Harry Parashis said. At their gallery, they specialize in American Impressionists and plein-air paintings from 1870 to 1940.

Re "High Court Won't Review Scalia's Recusal Decision," Jan. 27: Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist's letters to the U.S. senators suggest what appears to be arrogance to the umpteenth degree. His suggestion that it's "ill-considered" to question whether a justice should dismiss himself or herself in a circumstance where his or her impartiality may be questioned appears to defy reason. Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) sounds prudent in his response that lack of a discussion of the issue of whether Justice Antonin Scalia is capable of rendering an impartial legal decision concerning his friend and hunting pal, Vice President Dick Cheney, could result in, among other things, a "tainted result and a loss of public confidence in our nation's highest court."

God of War: Chains of Olympus is perfection on the PlayStation Portable. Our biggest complaint of the previous two God of War installments for the PS2 was the lack of camera control. Too often enemies attacked from off-camera and there was no way to see what was going on. (This was done in an effort to pump as many pixels into what could be seen, making God of War one of the best-looking games of that generation.) Luckily, at least in this case, the PSP has no second stick to control a view, eliminating the problem.

Sony Corp. has finally exorcised the ghost of Betamax. The Japanese company's Blu-ray format emerged the victor in the battle to set the standard for high-definition DVDs. Its victory over Toshiba Corp.'s rival HD DVD leaves behind its embarrassing loss to VHS in last century's battle for the home videocassette market. Toshiba announced Tuesday it was abandoning its next-generation high-definition disc format, saying it would no longer make and market players and recorders.

IMMERSED IN HISTORY There's a sense of serenity about these hotels, each of which nods to the past and each with an urban vibe that belies the pastoral nature of Ribera del Duero. Hotel Fuente de la Aceña The modern wing of hotel rooms along the riverfront is attached to a renovated centuries-old stone flour mill housing a chic restaurant (above) and bar.

Long live rock!!! (Cue accompanying fist pump with Bic lighter aloft) Be it dead or alive.... It's actually another song by the Who that inspires the title of writer-director Mike Binder's "Reign Over Me," but it seems appropriate to begin with a guttural, lung-clearing wail of some kind.

As the newly announced grand marshal for the 2006 Rose Parade, retiring U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Sandra Day O'Connor has an odd act to follow. This year's grand marshal was Mickey Mouse. Without benefit of Mickey's oversized white gloves, O'Connor will wave to the crowds Jan. 2 as she rides along the parade route through Pasadena in an antique auto. The selection of O'Connor, who attended the parade as a little girl, is a landmark of sorts for the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Assn.

The Village Cafe Francais is the sort of restaurant that critics consider a "find"--a tiny, chef-owned place at which the patrons reign supreme and the kitchen is motivated by a genuine desire to excel. The chef in question is one Angela Hake, a woman whose food service philosophy would be regarded as blasphemy by the management of almost any restaurant chain.
