The arthropod, of the California spiny variety, was surrounded. Antennae waving, his layered tail twitching, the arthropod, more commonly known as a lobster, was eyeball to eyeball with about 10 second- and third-graders in Kendall Clark's class at Andrew Jackson Elementary School in Santa Ana. Everyone wanted to touch, but Carolyn Cosgrove-Wake warned them to be gentle. "Try not to touch his eyeball," Cosgrove-Wake said. "Would you want anybody touching your eyeball?"

Pasadena Muir, the final resting place for Michael Graham's high school football career. Lovely Muir High, just a short drive down the freeway from Duarte, where Graham attended Northview Middle School for two years--a lifetime in this Bing and Bob movie. The road ends here. Graham is a senior and the football future his father, Leanzo, has long talked about is just around the corner. Provided they haven't made a wrong turn.

The city of Orange is a sweet little town southeast of L.A. where just about everyone in Southern California goes to buy old things. I'm talking about stuff you threw away years ago that's now being sold as a valued relic of the past for 50 times its original cost. Toy cars, comic books, dolls, tops, tin drums, lunch boxes, and even that old hat your mama wore when she went to the five-and-dime.

It really doesn't matter where Dominik Hasek and the Detroit Red Wings play. They win wherever they are. Hasek stopped 28 shots Saturday in stretching his unbeaten streak to 15 games in the Red Wings' latest victory--5-2 over the Blues at St. Louis. Detroit has won a team-record eight in a row on the road. The Red Wings also have won their last eight overall, one shy of the team's record winning streak.

The great brooding hulk of Poznan's Palace of Culture was gussied up recently with an exhibition of star-spangled glitz depicting the history and variety of the American theater. It was all a bit dazzling, in a country where, especially in winter, the predominant color is a gray that matches the sky. So the groups of Polish high school and college students who filed in every afternoon seemed almost subdued at first, as though their eyes were adjusting to the light.

At QVC, the only all-shopping channel that offers the likes of Snor-Ban and Armadillo Skin Barrier, the sales executives aren't satisfied with simply rolling in dough. These days, they prefer to roll toward it, in a 45-foot-long orange and yellow bus.

When you think of the big Los Angeles County venues for touring Broadway shows, you think of the Shubert, the Pantages, the Ahmanson. But with the coming season, the people who run Pasadena Civic Auditorium want you to add their name to that list.

General Manager Bob Clarke of the Philadelphia Flyers was shocked when he first looked at his team's schedule, which included an 11-game tour of the Eastern Conference. Disney's "Incredibles on Ice" show was booked into the Wachovia Center, so the Flyers, left without a choice, left town on their odyssey Dec. 23. And suddenly, they became incredible on the ice.

Commissioner Gary Bettman has toured more North American cities than the Rolling Stones and done more interviews lately than even Al Gore, kicking off a public relations campaign to portray the NHL in a favorable light before the expiration of the labor agreement between the league and players.

Nineteen singing, dancing, homicidal characters appear onstage in "Chicago," the darkly funny tale of the trial of murderous Roxie Hart (another four "swing" performers wait in the wings). But when this touring show closes in one theater and moves to another, a cast twice that size takes the stage--as the 40-some members of the stage crew begin the flurry of activity required to load seven trucks with sets, costumes, wigs and technical equipment and head for the next theater.
