When men are outstanding athletes, they have strength, courage, athleticism. When women are outstanding athletes, it's only sex appeal ["Looking Good," July 8]. Shame on you, L.A. Times and Mike Penner. JEAN MOORE, Los Angeles I just can't accept the Women's World Cup as a legitimate sporting event. The players give 100% and don't complain about the refs. They don't talk trash, go on strike or choke their coaches. There are no $100-million contracts or drug problems. What kind of professional sport is that?

Start a women's soccer team, they told him. So Al Mistri, who has been the Cal State Fullerton men's soccer coach since that program began in 1981, went to work last month. He put together a schedule for next fall, started recruiting players and figured he'd better order some equipment, too. It was then he learned his first lesson: The differences between coaching men and women starts long before you call your first team meeting.

With a hat trick Sunday at the Rose Bowl against Mexico, the United States' Mia Hamm would share the all-time scoring record in women's soccer. She would tie Italian Elisabetta Vignotto, who had 107. She played in the '70s and '80s. So, no matter what you've heard, the United States didn't invent women's soccer. We do, however, deserve credit for popularizing it around the world.
