WITH 4 MINUTES, 9 seconds left in the second quarter of Game 2 in Chicago's United Center, 76ers coach Doug Collins was leaping off the bench and out unto the court to pull center Spencer Hawes away from an official after he was whistled for his third personal foul. Not long after Hawes' foul, the Bulls were heading to the locker room with an eight-point halftime lead and seemingly a stranglehold on a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. After allowing continuous wide-open shots to end that second quarter, in which Chicago scored on each of its last 11 possessions, the Sixers made adjustments in the locker room, and a new attitude arose.

Cheyney University football coach Vincent Williams wants to win a few games this year. More important, he wants to create a positive attitude on a team that is all too familiar with losing. Falling by 56-7 to West Chester in Cheyney's opener did little to further either goal. Rallying to tie Virginia Union, 21-21, on Saturday was a giant step in the right direction. "We haven't climbed the staircase yet," Williams said. "We had some chances to win Saturday, but we didn't do it. But we've taken steps forward.

O'Brien's got to part with the hair Michael O'Brien (Guest Opinion, Sept. 16): Grow up and get a job. Being a male with long hair is something you have control over. You compared yourself to African-Americans or Hispanics. Their skin color is out of their control, and cannot be changed. I have been disabled and confined to a wheelchair for over 10 years, yet I have been working and successfully promoted since I was able to go back to work over eight years ago. Sure, there's discrimination out there over many things that people have no control over, but if everyone made up excuses, this country would be a sad place.

A confident Buddy Ryan came out of his interview with Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner Hugh Culverhouse all but claiming he was returning home merely to change suits for the news conference anticipated later this week to name a replacement at head coach for fired Richard Williamson. "You know me. I always think I'm the leading candidate," said Ryan, the smug and successful former coach of the Eagles. "I'm always going to win, and I'm always going to be the leading candidate. It's a great opportunity, and it seems like a fit. Most teams that lose need an attitude adjustment, and I do my best work adjusting attitudes.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You know the "where" and the "what," you just don't know the "who" yet. Your job now is to put offerings in front of as many candidates as possible. The right "who" will show up soon. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Are you the impulsive child who can't move forward without the resources or permission of your guardian? Either way, the dynamic is getting old. Someone should break the rules. Maybe you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). What makes the job hard and what makes it easy is the same thing: attitude.

From the opening kickoff, which was returned 91 yards for a touchdown by Spring-Ford's Mike Moser, Friday night's Pioneer Athletic Conference football game between the Rams and host Upper Perkiomen wasn't much of a contest. Yet the game stood out for both teams as a symbol of where they have been, where they are, and where they may be headed. Spring-Ford 46, Upper Perkiomen 6. The season has been as good for the Rams (8-2 overall, 8-1 conference) as it has been bad for the overmatched Indians, who finished 1-9, 1-8. "We just had such an awful year [3-9]

GREGG GILLIS, the mix-mashing male artist ironically known as Girl Talk, is usually pegged as a major player in the "EDM" (electronic dance music) camp. "But I've always felt as connected with rock, pop and hip-hop as with electronic, never wanted to pick a side," Gillis shared the other day from home base in Pittsburgh. "And I'm much happier playing at diversified festivals like Made in America than at a straight up EDM festival where people come for the atmosphere and the party and it's easy [for an artist]

MONTREAL - The Flyers were outhustled, outshot and outplayed in their 5-1 spanking by the Montreal Canadiens in Game 3. Turns out their minds weren't focused, either, coach Peter Laviolette said in a roundabout way. At practice Friday, there was an attitude adjustment, said Laviolette, whose team leads the Eastern Conference finals, two games to one, heading into Saturday afternoon's contest at the raucous Bell Centre. "Our attitude was a little more crisp today," he said.

The Flyers downplayed Chris Pronger's hand injury - the defenseman is questionable for Saturday night's game in Ottawa - and were more concerned about their uneven play in recent games. In fact, after Friday's practice in Voorhees, general manager Paul Holmgren went so far as to say the players needed "a bit of an attitude adjustment" as the team heads toward the last six weeks of the regular season. As for Pronger, he missed Friday's practice because his right hand was still swollen and he was having a difficult time gripping a stick.

Three years ago, baby-faced Claude Giroux sat down at Haircut 100, around the corner from the Flyers' practice facility in Voorhees, for a trim. There was some small talk, and when he was asked what was going on in his life, Giroux said he was a hockey player. Hairdresser: "Do you play in a junior league?" Giroux: "Uh, no. I play for the Flyers. " Hairdresser, her face turning red: "Oh. Sorry, I didn't know. " Fast-forward to the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs.

BECOMING CHAZ. 9 p.m. tomorrow, OWN. FEW, IF ANY, of the millions who first encountered a blonde toddler named Chastity on "The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour" would have predicted that that little girl would one day grow up to be a burly guy named Chaz. But, then, who'd have guessed that her shaggy-haired father would someday be a Republican congressman? Or that her wisecracking mother would win an Academy Award? Clearly, attitudes and perceptions can be adjusted.

D AN ELLIS HAS won everywhere. He won a state championship as the starting quarterback for Downingtown in 1996. He won as a 2-year starter and played in two bowl games at Virginia. He went into coaching carrying the same attitude he played with, so Springfield had no choice but to win. In his third year, Ellis has directed Springfield to its best season since 1994, including Saturday's 56-49 District 1 Class AAA playoff victory over Bishop Shanahan to become the first Springfield team ever to win a playoff game.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Quintin Mikell's off-season of clarity could be a lesson for wide receiver DeSean Jackson or for anyone that feels underpaid or underappreciated. The Eagles safety, disgruntled about his contract last season, said he let the situation affect his performance on the field. "I realized at the end of the day you can't control none of that stuff," Mikell said Sunday at training camp. "All we can control is what we put on the field, and I've come to peace with that.
