"We've suspended him indefinitely," said Howard Freedman, XTRA program director.

It's ice hockey in the Long Beach Arena and the scout from the Montreal Canadiens, a team that for many is the embodiment of professional hockey's rich history, is aghast. It isn't the oversized beach ball that bounces onto the ice and stops the action. It isn't the Beach Boys song played during player introductions or the surfer band setting up in the lobby. It isn't even the motorized water skis offered as giveaways in a sport more suited to snowmobiles.

John McEnroe and Mary Carillo grew up in the same neighborhood in Queens, N.Y., playing tennis against each other as kids. As adults, they played mixed doubles together, and now CBS is reuniting them this weekend as commentators at the U.S. Open. But this match is not love-love. Two years ago, McEnroe, on a conference call with reporters, said women should not be announcing men's tennis, and he singled out Carillo.

Dick Enberg, liked by almost everyone, has announced six Super Bowls. Phil Simms, finishing a solid rookie season in the broadcast booth, has played in two. "I've watched 29 of 'em," says Paul Maguire, the odd one of the three-man announcing team who will be working Sunday's Super Bowl for NBC. It's hard to put your finger on it, but there's a certain appeal to Maguire. It's certainly not his looks. He will tell you he was fired by NBC in 1979 for being so darn ugly.

There's also a group of coaches who have left the sidelines, tried television, then chosen to stay in it. Joe Gibbs and Mike Ditka, former coaches who now work on NBC's NFL pregame show, talked about the two professions earlier this week while stuck in New York with little to do because of the East Coast blizzard.

The Dallas Cowboys may be "America's Team," but the Miami Dolphins appear to be Los Angeles' team. There were a lot of complaints last week when NBC chose to give Los Angeles the Raiders' game at Washington on Sunday instead of Miami's game at New England. Turned out the Dolphins' 20-3 victory was sort of a dud, but that is beside the point. L.A. apparently wanted to see the Dolphins, and KABC radio's Steve Edwards and Eric Tracy can offer proof of that. Edwards and Tracy, proclaiming L.A.
