Just for fun a few months ago, comedian "Chicago Steve" Barkley drove from his home in Pebble Beach to Stanford University where, he heard, a crew for ABC's "America's Funniest People" had set up outside the student union, looking for anyone who wanted to do something funny for the camera. Barkley--an Illinois native whose style brings to mind his boyhood idol, Jonathan Winters--ended up doing funny motorcycle noises, a bit he used to do in his act back when he was starting out in the mid-'70s.

Tustin High School did itself and the rest of the Sea View League a big favor Wednesday night. It stopped the upstart Estancia team that had seemed bent on upsetting all the league powers. The Eagles had upset both Corona del Mar, ranked fourth in the county at the time, and University. One game shy of the end of the first round, Estancia, once 4-8 and picked to finish well back in the league, had won six straight and was undefeated in four league games. Tustin, the county's No.

The Sea View League may have a new look, but its coaches predict another close race for the title with University and newcomer Tustin slight favorites. The league has been trimmed from eight to six teams with Woodbridge, Laguna Beach and Costa Mesa moving into the newly formed Pacific Coast League, and Tustin coming from the Century League. Last season, four teams--Laguna Beach, Newport Harbor, Saddleback and University--tied for third.

It's not often that a team will see two of its starters foul out of a basketball game in the third quarter and still go on to win by 20 points. But that's exactly what happened to Estancia High School in its 70-50 victory over University in Sea View League play at University Friday night. The Eagles lost starters Ron Brazell and Craig Covey to fouls within 40 seconds midway through the third quarter, but that hardly fazed them.

Estancia High School beat Sonora, 68-42, in the first round of the Estancia Tournament in Costa Mesa Friday night. That wasn't much of a surprise, unless you consider that the Eagles were playing without one of their best players, 6-foot 4-inch forward Matt Allen, whom Coach Joe Reid kicked off the team in a disciplinary action last week. The Eagles (4-5) had lost two straight games since Allen's dismissal but came back in style, picking Sonora apart with precision shooting and good defense.

Seen and heard on TNT, during a studio analysts' debate about NBA point guards: Charles Barkley: "I love Steve Nash, but this is Chris Paul's and Deron Williams' league right now. I always say that Chris Paul is driving and Deron Williams is in the back seat." Reggie Miller: "Where's Steve Nash?" Barkley: "He's in the trunk." Trivia time Maurice Richard was the first NHL player to score 50 goals in a season, doing so in 1944-45 in 50 games. Who was the next to score 50?

Operation Desert Storm lasted little longer than an extra-inning game at Dodger Stadium. The "Evil Empire" has shattered into more pieces than a vodka tumbler flung from the top of the Washington Monument. And back in the Middle East, despite lingering acrimony, Arab-Israeli peace talks are scheduled to open next month. As a new world order takes shape, what's a mercenary to do?
