It takes all kinds of players to make a well-rounded hockey team, and nowhere on the Flyers can a more striking contrast be found than the one between centers Pelle Eklund and Ron Sutter. Eklund, once named the athlete of the year in his native country of Sweden, performs ballet on the ice, pirouetting around defenders and jetting through openings like a Formula One race car. Sutter, on the other hand, prefers the slam-dance approach. He'll go through a defender rather than around him. His game is spelled D-E-F-E-N-S-E, and he hassles opposing forwards like an irritated terrier snapping at your heels.

Now I understand why Fire Commissioner Hairston is always wearing a hat - it's to cover that enormous head and ego! It sickens me to think that he has betrayed his fellow firefighters in such a manner. He might be smug and laughing all the way to the bank, but I don't know how he can honestly look at himself in the mirror. He went from doing the job along side fellow firefighters to looking down his nose at them as if he were better. He has traded the selfless patch of courage worn by every firefighter and replaced it with a self-serving patch of deplorable distinction.

Jockey Carl Rafter crossed the finish line on Saluda Sam in the finale at Saturday's Radnor Hunt Races and couldn't help himself. He stood tall in the stirrups and launched his whip into the infield - a souvenir for a fan. Winning three steeplechase races in a day will do that to you. Based in Virginia, Rafter started by steering Meet At Eleven home in the $40,000 Radnor Hunt Cup timber stakes, the day's third race; added the $50,000 National...

THE TOUGHEST part of Tyson Chandler's night was the postgame interview. The California native and San Francisco 49ers fan, who had just tied a franchise record with his third straight 20-rebound game, was forced to face the media wearing a Ravens Super Bowl champion hat, payment of a lost bet with Baltimore fan Carmelo Anthony. "That made my day. You just don't know," said Anthony, who stood across the locker room and watched Chandler's interview with a smile. "It was a good day for me, it just was a coincidence that he had three games with 20 rebounds.

The Phantoms wasted a hat trick by Eric Chouinard in a 4-3 loss to the Syracuse Crunch last night in the AHL. Chouinard scored twice in the first period, giving the Phantoms a 2-0 lead, and again in the second period to give the team a 3-2 lead. But Mark Hartigan scored a power-play goal midway through the final period (with A.J. Abel off for hooking) and the 3-3 tie stood up through the overtime. It took seven rounds of the shoot-out for the Crunch to prevail, but a miss by Tony Voce set up the winning goal by Syracuse's Joe Motzko.

It was the kind of day you could hang your hat on. At least that's how actor Robert Cristophe saw it as he tried to work out a physical-comedy routine with a bowler on Rittenhouse Square. Despite forecasts of doom and gloom, yesterday was rather nice, with a high of 74 - straw-hat weather, as they used to say.
