Re "Just Settle Back and Enjoy," editorial, Nov. 1: Why is it that a celebrity is always judged by what people think of him? Michael Jordan, a legend in his own right, is being criticized simply for returning to play the game he loves professionally. People have mentioned his age or their thoughts of having the legend stay gone after leaving that "unstoppable" imprint of a basketball star, and there are those people who feel it's great that he has made yet another comeback. So? What about that boy who grew up playing basketball?

An expansion team can't set its sights too high, and one of the Mighty Duck's goals is simply to pass the Ottawa Senator's sorry first-year record of 10-70-4 (1-41 on the road) last season. The other new team in 1992-93, the Tampa Bay Lightning, was a more respectable 23l-54-7. Home arena/headquarters: Anaheim Arena. Phone: (714) 704-2700 Parking: $6 per car, $12 per bus. Gates open two hours before faceoff, arena one hour before.

Just a quick pop quiz for all the new Mighty Duck fans. Do you remember any of the following? The Iceman ... the Decoys ... the "Rock the Pond" theme song ... that first 7-2 loss to Detroit (wasn't that sweep extra sweet?) ... Stuuuuuuuu ... Kasatonov, Semenov, Yake, Valk, Corkum, Loney, etc. How great it was to score that first goal (thanks Sean Hill) ... the look on Ron Wilson's face after the first win ... the trip through Canada where we finally earned some respect. I'm not going to whine about you not being a "true fan" if you don't know what I'm talking about.
