Helix High School Coach John Singer would not be surprised if the El Capitan basketball team began playing "Let's Get Physical" as its pregame song. The ninth-ranked Vaqueros (10-3, 6-0) have enjoyed success this season with their physical style and it worked again Tuesday night as they defeated the host Highlanders, 68-58, in Grossmont League play. "El Cap played their game," Singer said. "They're much more physical than us.

"Hookup!" shouted a deckhand as he saw a fishing pole suddenly bend to the accompanying wail of a saltwater reel. "Fish on!" yelled skipper Ted Cohen as fishermen scrambled along the stern of the "Champagne Wishes" and cleared the way for the teen-ager who was reeling furiously and grimacing noticeably as the others cheered him on.

The opera and symphony crowd that frequents the Music Center might not recognize Patti Austin's name or face, but they probably do know her voice. Austin, who plays a rare Dorothy Chandler Pavilion pop-jazz show tonight with pianist David Benoit, has been the singer on hundreds of TV and radio commercials for the past dozen years.

A world without digital handcuffs on downloaded music sounds pretty good to Eston Bond, a 21-year old senior at the University of Michigan. Bond, a self-proclaimed music lover, is sick of the anti-piracy software that limits how he can listen to music downloaded from Apple Inc.'s iTunes and other online stores.
