According to the poll, which was released Monday, 56 percent of those surveyed say they're not interested in watching any games on television and 65 percent aren't interested in attending.

Nearly one in 10 American children has fired a gun at another person, according to a new survey of sixth to 12th graders. Eleven percent of the youths said they had been shot at, and better than a third said they feared their lives might be cut short by gunfire, the survey found. The survey of 2,500 students by pollster Louis Harris describes a generation immersed in a culture of guns and violence that has left many shadowed by anxiety and deep pessimism about their future.

Vice President George Bush yesterday denounced the government of South Africa as a "racist state," using the strongest language yet of any high Reagan administration official toward the apartheid regime. His remark, which came a day after Democratic platform writers agreed to castigate South Africa as a "terrorist state" in their 1988 party document, seemed calculated to put distance between Bush and administration policies on the subject. However, Bush, like President Reagan, said he does not favor breaking diplomatic ties with Pretoria.

THE DALLAS Cowboys remain America's Team, and the popularity of the Eagles nationally is falling, according to a Harris poll released yesterday. The Birds are ranked 13th, the first time they have been in double digits since being ranked 20th in 2003. The Eagles were fifth in 2004 and 2005 when they were in the Super Bowl and its aftermath, and they were seventh last year. The national poll reflects the responses of 2,620 adults surveyed online from Sept. 14 to 20 by Harris Interactive.

As if anyone needed further confirmation that the days of Ozzie and Harriet are long, long gone, just take a look at a new poll of American adults' favorite leisure activities. Spending time with the family ranked as the most popular way to spend non-work time for only 13 percent of those polled. Among the rest, 14 percent said they'd rather dig in the garden, 21 percent said they'd rather watch some TV. The winner, with 30 percent, was reading. Spending time with the family did beat out fishing, tops with 11 percent of the people in the Harris Poll released this week.

ONLY A MAJOR upset or a dramatic shift by voters can prevent a rematch between LSU and Alabama in the BCS national championship game. LSU defeated Alabama, 9-6, in overtime on Nov. 5 in Tuscaloosa. The Tigers and Crimson Tide hold down the top two spots for the second straight week, and by a wide margin over third-place Oklahoma State. Stanford is fourth and Virginia Tech fifth. LSU (1.000 BCS average) is a unanimous No. 1 in both the coaches' poll and the Harris poll, and is top-ranked in the computer ratings.

Perhaps the biggest news in the second BCS standings is that Iowa moved from sixth to fourth, despite dropping from seventh to eighth in the Harris poll, one of two votes that are used in this formula. The Hawkeyes did, however, go from from third to first in computer average, are are first in five of those six rankings. Never underestimate the value of a last-play win at Michigan State. What that means, of course, remains anyone's guess at this juncture. Not shockingly, Florida, Alabama and Texas maintained their hold on your top three spots.

In March of 1986, Lou Harris and Associates conducted a poll for the International Center for the Disabled. The survey attracted a great deal of media attention because it focused on attitudes and conditions of Americans with disabilities. One of the highlights of the 1986 poll indicated that two thirds of those disabled people who were unemployed said they would like to have a job. That revelation inspired a second Harris poll, just recently released. The new survey is based on interviews with 920 employers who related their experience with hiring and employing people with disabilities.

TO ALL THOSE folks who figured the selection committee for that new four-team playoff was going to somehow reinvent the wheel - and you know who you are - it might be time to reconsider. I keep hearing how the panel, which is down to 12 members now that Archie Manning has taken a leave of absence due to health issues, will be able to weigh all the information differently than the way voters and the even-more-dreaded computers did before. And thereby, I'm assuming, come up with better answers/solutions.

The jockeying over the second slot in the BCS standings behind Alabama continues on Saturday with two of the contenders playing ranked teams. Kansas State, currently in second place, hosts high-scoring Oklahoma State (No. 24 in the BCS rankings) and fourth-rated Oregon visits No. 17 Southern California. Notre Dame, ranked third and fresh off its dismantling of Oklahoma, has a relative breather at home against Pittsburgh. One must feel a bit sorry for the Ducks, who were looking forward to engaging a top-ranked Southern Cal team to give their computer ranking a boost.

NEW YORK - Hereafter , Clint Eastwood's 31st feature film as a director in 40 years, drew enthusiastic applause at Lincoln Center, where it closed the New York Film Festival last Sunday night. The next morning found the actor/director, the planet's most unassuming movie star, lounging on a banquette outside the Warner Brothers screening room as members of the National Board of Review, an awards group, previewed his new film inside. The movie, opening Friday, stars Matt Damon as a moody psychic and C├ęcile De France as a broadcaster shaken by a near-death experience.

Last week, the insurgency also helped Nikki Haley finish first in South Carolina's GOP gubernatorial primary. Tea party voters helped Rand Paul defeat an establishment GOP Senate candidate in Kentucky last month, drove Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter out of GOP primary races, and sank the reelection bid of Utah Republican Sen. Robert Bennett.

Florida State coach Bobby Bowden said yesterday he isn't planning to quit any time soon. That could leave school officials in a difficult situation. Florida State is 2-3 for the first time since Bowden's inaugural season at the school 33 years ago, and 0-2 in the Atlantic Coast Conference for the first time, prompting questions about his future at a program he transformed into a collegiate powerhouse. After Saturday's 28-21 loss at Boston College, two Florida newspapers, including the hometown Tallahassee Democrat, said Bowden should call it a career at the end of this season.
