Buddy Ryan, making his first public appearance in Chicago since being named head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, apologized for not having any prepared remarks. "I thought Mike Ditka would be here so we could fight," he said. Although he has been feuding with his former head coach in the papers, Ryan said the Bears' defense would be as good as ever next season. "They'll be great," he said. "They know how to win and they know how to play."

Coach Buddy Ryan talked a mighty big game this summer. He was another freedom fighter come to town, saying, in no uncertain terms, that his Philadelphia Eagles would win the NFC East and all eight games against division teams. By mid-November, you half expected Ryan's likeness to be unveiled across the street from Veterans Stadium, alongside the arms-raised statue of Rocky Balboa: the Italian Stallion and the Ornery Oklahoman.

Tim Keown of the San Francisco Chronicle agonized over the Giants' 12-1 defeat by the Dodgers on Sunday: "This is story nobody wanted to read, the conclusion nobody wanted to see, an ugly end to a beautiful thing. "The Giants were up to every challenge this season. They answered every twist and turn and quirk of fate. "Every one except one." There, there.

In 1949, Kentucky, coached by Paul (Bear) Bryant, went 9-2 and accepted an Orange Bowl bid. After Bryant put the Wildcats through two weeks of grueling workouts, they were upset by Santa Clara, 21-13. Bob Gain, the Outland Trophy winner who played offensive and defensive tackle for the Wildcats, recently told Jim Terhune of the Louisville Courier-Journal that after Kentucky went 10-1 in 1950, he challenged Bryant in a team meeting.

Marty Schottenheimer, coach of the Cleveland Browns, isn't sure which was worse, Frank Minnifield's play or the player's explanation. Minnifield, after intercepting a pass against Houston Sunday, scrambled around looking for running room, and when he couldn't find any, he flung a wild lateral that sailed over the head of fellow defensive back Hanford Dixon, who wasn't looking for a lateral. The ball flew out of bounds.

Rod Woodson, the Pittsburgh Steelers' All-Pro cornerback, told Inside Sports magazine that he wishes he had played in an earlier era, when "you could throw a guy on his head. "If you kicked a guy, they (officials) would probably just say, 'Hey, watch it.' Nowadays, if you kick, you're thrown out of the game. "You used to be able to jump in a ref's face and call him anything in the book; now you cuss him out, he's going to throw you out of the game. This is not true football." Thank goodness.

When Minnesota lost Torii Hunter and Joe Mauer to injuries, Manager Ron Gardenhire asked his players to come together as team. They have responded with five consecutive victories. Jacque Jones had two doubles, a triple and four runs batted in, and the Twins beat the Kansas City Royals, 8-3, Sunday to complete a three-game sweep at Minneapolis. "Nothing surprises me in this clubhouse, these guys can play," Gardenhire said.

T oday's unconventional wisdom . . . The Mighty Ducats: Personally, I don't know anyone who would camp out overnight in the Anaheim Arena parking lot for the right to pay $35 to watch Todd Ewen wrestle Keith Primeau, but there is photographic evidence. The lines wrapped around the building, the confusion in the ticket offices, the sheer hostility of the masses when choice games were declared sellouts--ice boxing is a runaway hit in Orange County.

*** KASEY CHAMBERS "Barricades & Brickwalls" Warner Bros. Chambers has one of those classic country voices. Never mind that her country is Australia--she sounds as if she was reared in a Tennessee mountain home. On her second album (in stores Tuesday; she plays the Roxy in West Hollywood on Feb. 19), she makes her voice count, applying that Dolly Parton-meets-Sheryl Crow singing to Dolly Parton-meets-Steve Earle songwriting and musical range.
