He has trained with Greg Louganis, plunged from the treacherous seaside cliffs of Mexico and set a world high-diving record. Sam Hernandez is the only American to twice win the World Class Diving Championships, at which he set a record of 156 feet in 1977 and broke it with a 158-foot dive--a record he still holds--two years later. He also placed first in the Acapulco World Cliff Diving Championships.

The Avengers finally lived up to their name on Sunday -- and recorded the most significant victory in franchise history. After getting beaten twice last season by the San Jose SaberCats, the Avengers rallied from a 20-point deficit to defeat the defending ArenaBowl champions, 73-72, before an announced crowd of 14,992 at Staples Center.

Maybe it was simply a case of opening-night jitters, but this was hardly the start first-year Coach Mike Hohensee and the Piranha fans were expecting. Hohensee came here from Albany, N.Y., where he developed a reputation for being the Don Coryell of the Arena Football League. But for most of Saturday night, Air Hohensee was grounded. The Piranhas struggled to a heartbreaking 33-32 last-second loss to the expansion New Jersey Red Dogs in front of 10,582 at the Pond.

As if things aren't depressing enough for the 2-9 Piranhas these days, two expansion franchises are headed to the playoffs and two of their former players are tearing up the Arena Football League. The expansion New Jersey Red Dogs, who beat the Piranhas in the season opener, 33-32, are 8-3 and in third position among the eight teams that make the playoffs. The first-year Nashville Kats, who beat Anaheim, 68-62, last month, also appear headed to the playoffs with an 8-3 record.

It's rattlesnake season in the Santa Monica Mountains. This may not impress those who live in Beverly Hills, but if you're out hiking in the boondocks around Topanga or above the homeless compounds of nuclear-free Malibu, take heed. The snakes are out early this year and they're looking for trouble. My assertion, I know, will be challenged by those who contend that a reptile--unlike, say, an outlaw biker or a member of the Southside Crips--lacks the capacity to look for trouble and will not go out of its way to engage in the kinds of antisocial behavior generally associated with higher forms of life.

A catcher's equipment is often called the tools of ignorance, and it was ignorant, A.J. Applefield confessed, to catch a game earlier this season with a severely injured left thumb. It nearly cost Applefield the rest of his junior season and Santa Fe Christian a shot at its first San Diego Section baseball title. The fourth-seeded Eagles (15-7) will play third-seeded Borrego Springs (14-5) in today's 1-A championship at 1 p.m.

A procession of small airplanes appears from the north, alighting one by one on a desolate airstrip in a dusty field in Baja California. Out step two dozen Americans, carrying leather bags and medical supplies. They pause to get their bearings, then move away from the field. This is another monthly visit from the Flying Samaritans, who take medical services to the needy in some remote areas south of the border.
