He has been playing some roller hockey, and while every bit the humble football player even after winning the Super Bowl as Washington's starting quarterback, to be honest, he says, he's pretty good on skates. He has also been playing some golf, but Mark Rypien has not been in the gym, has not picked up a football since leaving the Atlanta Falcons after learning his young son, Andrew, had an inoperable brain tumor.

The parade will be early next week. It will wind from the harbor, through the hills, ending in a stadium named after a sportswriter and made famous by a chicken. An appropriate venue for a most unlikely team. The San Diego Chargers, 1994 Super Bowl Champions. When team members and coaches drive up in open-air convertibles--all except Coach Bobby Ross, who couldn't figure out how to get his top down--the fans will race inside to laud their heroes.

A football sits three yards--nine feet--from a goal line and for San Diego it is fourth and forever. Pittsburgh has one more play. Three yards are all that stand between the Chargers and a Super Bowl, all that is keeping the state of California from possessing both of America's Teams. It is half past noon back in San Diego and everybody must be half past crazy.

They are only four words, an admission of the obvious, but they have taken Jim Everett more than eight years to utter: "I took a dive."

The Rams took another ride down the San Diego pipeline Wednesday, claiming tight end Eric Sievers on waivers from the Chargers. Sievers, 29, had been on injured reserve since Oct. 12 with a neck injury. The Chargers were trying to bring him back this week because of an injury to Rod Bernstine but had to expose Sievers to waivers because they had used their 5 free roster moves for the season.

Richard Brown, the former San Diego State and Ram linebacker, was in a hurry Tuesday afternoon, with little time to eat lunch, less to talk. He had some routine but important business to take care of on the fifth day of his first Charger training camp. "I've got to go to a meeting," he said, hurrying to conclude a brief post-lunch interview at UC San Diego. "I need a job." He needs it now more than ever. Brown and his wife, Heather, recently became the parents of their first child.

So much for the NFL's new world order. Never mind that the San Diego Chargers had the AFC's best record and nine Pro Bowl players. Forget that they hadn't lost at home all season, or that they have the league's most valuable player in LaDainian Tomlinson, or that they were riding a 10-game winning streak.

Joe Milinichik, the Rams' starting right guard, turned his back on an additional $150,000 Thursday and agreed to a $2.2-million, two-year contract with the San Diego Chargers. The Rams offered Milinichik $2.2 million and gave him a 2 p.m. deadline Thursday to accept it. The Chargers matched the Rams' offer, however, and Milinichik telephoned Coach Chuck Knox with the news that he was going to take San Diego's money.

When the San Francisco 49ers opened that quick 21-0 lead on the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC championship game at Candlestick Park on Jan. 15 and expanded it to 31-14 before the half, it could have been even larger but for a sub-par performance by Jerry Rice. The 49ers' all-time receiver dropped three early passes, one in the end zone, after getting too close to Dallas free safety James Washington.

Bobby Beathard quit. It was never reported, and is discussed now only reluctantly, but San Diego Charger General Manager Bobby Beathard quit. The "smartest man in the NFL" walked out of training camp. There was no talk of a settlement, no room for compromise, just escape from team owner Alex Spanos, the man of whom former Charger coach Dan Henning said recently, "He's one of the most despicable people I've ever met in my whole life."
