Good and bad career advice from employed and unemployed of all ages: * Don't bother applying till the baby boomer start retiring. * If you're hard-headed, they won't let you go anywhere, unless you're sneaky about it. * Offer up your own ideas. * There's always going to be someone on top of you unless you go over their heads. * Exercise: Roller blading can lead to jobs. * Have your own goal in mind while you keep doing what you're expected to. * Stay home until you absolutely have to move out.

Tim Harris once played goalie for the Los Angeles Lazers, an indoor soccer team owned by Jerry Buss. Harris, now an executive with the Lakers, said that as he looks back it was obvious what Buss was doing. "He was setting up these labs for his kids to learn," Harris said. "That's how Jeanie learned and that's how I learned. Jeanie and I chuckle at it now. It wasn't that long ago we were sitting in roller hockey league meetings and now we're sitting in NBA league meetings. " Buss earned his fame and accolades by owning the Lakers and Kings.

Whoosh! There they go by the score, swooshing along on those newfangled ice skates on wheels--arms swinging, legs pumping. Lycra glinting in the sun. Shades just so. Whoa! Over there, a cop stops one and points to a sign: "No skaters." A ticket? For skating? No way--but it's true! Wham! The skater with the Walkman just hit a crack in the pavement and crashed. Check it out. The shades are shattered. The Lycra tights? Shredded! And that cockeyed wrist--it looks bad to the bone.

They're the Harley-Davidson for the bubble-gum set, gas-powered chariots of fun. Don't be alarmed when they zoom down your street. They only sound like a buzz saw on wheels. * They're Go-Peds, motorized scooters with a $460 price tag, de rigueur among the local kiddie elite. Forget roller-blades, bikes and skateboards. In certain parts of Orange County, Go-Peds are it .

We were content to wait on the sidelines for an interview with Mayor Richard Riordan after his ice-skating lesson. Then His Honor invited us to take a twirl on the ice. We declined because a pratfall was in the offing. After demurring, we were properly shod and tugged onto the ice, whereupon the mayor and ice-skating instructor Gary C. Visconti escorted us around an endless rink. Afterward, we settled onto safer ground.

The Los Angeles Blades had everything going for them entering Sunday night's 10-8 upset of the top-seeded Anaheim Bullfrogs in the opening round of the Roller Hockey International playoffs--it merely took them a while to figure it out. The Bullfrogs entered the playoffs on a two-game skid, minus two players because of injury, another lost because of suspension and flu slowing two more.

The game was about hanging on, and the Los Angeles Blades did that for as long as they could during Thursday night's 10-4 loss to the Anaheim Bullfrogs at the Forum. A crowd of 4,389 watched the Blades (6-8-4) score off the opening faceoff, but then got a prime look at why Anaheim (15-2-1) has the best record in the Roller Hockey International league.
