Herschel Walker probably will find the opponents and stadium more familiar than his teammates when he makes his first Monday night appearance for the Minnesota Vikings. Walker will play his third game for the Vikings when they meet the New York Giants tonight at Giants Stadium (Channel 6, 9 o'clock). He faced New York seven times as a member of the Dallas Cowboys, and he played home games at Giants Stadium for three seasons while playing for the New Jersey Generals of the United States Football League.

I'VE BEEN to your city many times, and really enjoyed it. My son, an avid Giants fan, was there for his first time last weekend, really looking forward to the game. Sunday morning, he proudly dressed in his Giants shirt. In the hotel lobby, he had people in his face, so he went back to his room before the game and changed his jersey for fear of what it would be like at the stadium. At the stadium, whenever he cheered for the Giants, he was showered with beer and screamed at. He told me one brave Giant fan actually wore his jersey in, and had to have a security guard with him for the entire game.

This city is always full of characters, but when Bruce Springsteen plays Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center, little pretties from the coastline to the city will raise their hands. Here, a primer on some of the tramps like us you're bound to run into on the streets of Philadelphia. 1. Someone who has seen more performances of the E Street Band than you have. Springsteen fans are notorious for seeing multiple shows on every tour, so it's likely you'll meet people who have seen the band 40 or 50 times, especially at Philadelphia shows, where some fans saw Springsteen in the 1970s at local gigs.

Made it almost to halftime without a mean word. Then, with 6 minutes, 50 seconds left in the second quarter, I saw him on the ramp between the mezzanine and lower level. "Eagles [expletive], you [expletive]," he shouted as he ran by. I wore a Donovan McNabb jersey to Giants Stadium yesterday, but it was not as bad as I thought it would be. And, truth be told, it was considerably better than when I wore a Dallas jersey to the Linc in October for Terrell Owens' highly anticipated return to Philadelphia in a Dallas uniform.

The New York Giants ended the season with another stinker, getting blown out, 44-7, by the Minnesota Vikings yesterday. The Giants were outscored, 85-16, in the last two games, including a 41-9 loss to Carolina last week in the team's final game at Giants Stadium, to finish 8-8 after starting the season 5-0. "Playing like that 2 weeks in a row is disrespectful to the logo that's on our helmet," center Shaun O'Hara said. "The Giants franchise, organization and fans deserve better than they received the last 2 weeks from the players.

The Eagles open the 1994 schedule where their dreams for the 1993 season were shattered - at Giants Stadium. On Sept. 4, the Eagles will play the New York Giants at the Meadowlands, where quarterback Randall Cunningham broke his leg on Oct. 3 against the Jets, and his team never recovered. How does Cunningham feel going back to the field that claimed his 1993 season? "I have faith all the time, and maybe I won't jump that one time too many before I get hit," Cunningham said.

The Washington Redskins, the offensive juggernaut of the NFL. Not the Minnesota Vikings with their high-revved, pitch-and-catch machine. Not the Denver Broncos with a running game so fierce that passing becomes easy. The Washington Redskins. It is a thought that momentarily defies logic, but two weeks into the season, it's becoming easier to believe. If you're having trouble, ask the New York Giants. The Giants for years have taken pride in their defense, but after the Redskins dismembered them, 50-21, yesterday before 73,170 at Giants Stadium, they were embarrassed about it. Until yesterday, no team had come into Giants Stadium and scored 50 points on the Giants.

"I think we've got Jay Schroeder's number down pretty well right now," Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor said, without challenge. Schroeder, the Washington quarterback, wasn't very good at all in the Redskins' 17-0 loss to the Giants yesterday in the NFC championship game. But that is becoming a tradition when Schroeder plays the Giants. He is a great young quarterback. He is going to the Pro Bowl this year as an alternate. He is cool. He is poised. He bounced back from a late-season slump to help lift the Redskins into the title game.

Fran Endres, a 41-year-old Eagles fan from Doylestown, looked around the huge Giants Stadium parking lot and marveled at how well the tailgating masses of beer-swigging Eagles and Giants fans were getting along. "My buddy's a Giants fan and he told me not to wear my Eagles jacket up here," Endres said. "But this is really a civil crowd. I don't see any violence. I think I'm going to get my Eagles jacket. " Seconds after Endres spoke those words, a crowd of Eagles fans just a few yards away erupted in a barbaric chant.
