Shaun Gayle is known as a tough guy when he plays defensive back for the Chicago Bears, but he has a softer side when it comes to children, especially those at his new preschool. Gayle, 26 and unmarried, runs a school for 2- to 5-year-old in this affluent suburb, helping children learn through physical fitness. "Their minds are like sponges, they absorb so much," he said as he watched four youngsters climbing, jumping, balancing, singing, listening and riding in his Fit by Five preschool.

The Chicago Bears' defense needed some big plays to save its reputation. Pushed around in the first half, the NFL's leading defense in 1984 came alive on Leslie Frazier's 29-yard touchdown runback of an interception on the second play of the third quarter and the Bears turned back the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 38-28, Sunday. "We knew we needed a big play after the way they handled us in the first half," said Frazier, whose interception return for a touchdown was the second of his career.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit in New York City charging that the NFL has practiced widespread discrimination against officials who are 60 and older. "Since at least September 1987, the NFL has engaged in and is continuing to engage in unlawful employment practices," the lawsuit said. The agency cited what it called the demotion in July of 1989 of Ben Dreith, now 66, from referee to line judge.

Quarterback Billy Joe Tolliver said he was told Tuesday night by a Charger official that he will be traded to the Atlanta Falcons today.

Charger General Manager Bobby Beathard confirmed that the Chargers and Falcons have agreed on the terms, but he said the deal has not been completed. "Atlanta wanted to wait until after their practice (today)," Beathard said.

It had been two weeks since Chicago Bear Coach Mike Ditka berated quarterback Jim Harbaugh for calling an audible that led to a key Minnesota touchdown during a loss to the Vikings. Sunday, Ditka was forced to be more conciliatory as Harbaugh passed for a personal-best 304 yards, including an 83-yard touchdown pass play to Anthony Morgan, during the Bears' 31-14 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Ever wonder about those fast 40-yard dash times run by aspiring NFL players? It's not surprising, considering the method used to time them. Last Wednesday, scouts representing 22 NFL teams hand-timed some USC seniors at Cromwell Field. No starting gun was used and the players essentially had a rolling start. Fastest Trojan? Wide receiver Ed Hervey with a best 40 time of 4.25 seconds. By that standard, Carl Lewis would be in the sub-four second range.

While Jim McMahon passed for a career-high 389 yards for the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, his former employers, the Chicago Bears, were struggling to get their offense going. Until the fourth quarter. The Bears showed they hardly miss their former quarterback by exploding for four touchdowns in the fourth quarter to rout the Minnesota Vikings, 38-7. The outburst tied a Bears record of 28 points in a fourth quarter set against Philadelphia on Nov. 30, 1941.

Whether it was amateur psychology or frustration, Coach Mike Ditka's "We stink" criticism of the Chicago Bears seemed to work. The Bears, stung by their coach's public criticism, responded by trouncing the Detroit Lions, 30-10, Sunday. "I didn't like it and it didn't inspire me," middle linebacker Mike Singletary said. "But we're working to get back where we were and we'll get there."
