SANDY Burdsall writes that she has learned "to put up with" the Phillies, Eagles and Sixers getting news coverage before the Flyers. She must realize that those are real sports played by real athletes. Hockey is just something for Canadians to do during the winter. If not for the NHL, hockey players would be in some beer league playing softball. Joseph Hammell Lewisville, Texas

Webster's defines superstition as "a belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance or a false conception of causation. " That makes it sound as if superstitions are ridiculous rituals that we perform only because we don't know how else to affect events or other people. Balderdash! Is wearing the same underwear every time you play H-O-R-S-E silly just because you wore them the first time you shut out your fourth-grade son in the driveway?

Hockey may still lack the necessary popular apppeal to get a network television contract, but the game between the Boston Bruins and the New Jersey Devils Sunday night had no trouble making the network news. This was thanks mainly to a complex low comedy that started with the alleged assault of an official by the Devils' coach. It eventually involved everyone from a New Jersey Superior Court judge to three hastily rounded-up game officials, who initially skated onto the ice in what appeared to be green-and-yellow clown suits.

Comly Auctioneers on Wednesday will handle a bankruptcy auction that will enrich the lives of hockey fans, on and off the ice. "This will be a sale of quantity and quality, the liquidation of all new equipment, obtained through a store now in bankruptcy," said Dan Comly Jr. "Some lots are so arranged to appeal to dealers, like bundles of sticks or helmets by the dozen," Comly said. "But other lots are small enough to attract the attention of individuals like parents, the non-dealer buyers.

Dwight Maetche's first love may be lacrosse, but it's his second love that has enabled the Philadelphia Wings' goalie to be named "All-World" three times during his nine-year career in Canadian box lacrosse. "Hockey has done a lot for me," said Maetche. "I grew up in Edmonton. When the lacrosse season was over (in July), there wasn't much else to do but hockey. The puck moves faster, but it is actually less accurate than a lacrosse ball. " Maetche, 29, will start in the nets during tomorrow's 2 p.m. Spectrum matinee, when the Wings (2-0)

As with football, the hitting of opponents - both legally and otherwise - is seen as being part of the game in ice hockey. So it comes as no surprise that players suffer concussions, as Flyers Claude Giroux, Chris Pronger, and Brayden Schenn have this season. But head-injury experts suspect that the true number of concussions is far greater than what is reported, both in hockey and other sports, both in professional and youth leagues. And in some respects, hockey players may be at greater risk than athletes in other sports, said Douglas H. Smith, director of the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Brain Injury and Repair.

Downingtown East has never been here before, but Courtney McGinty has. The Cougars assistant coach played field hockey for Downingtown before it split into two campuses 11 years ago, and was the team's cocaptain during a 1997 run that ended with a 1-0 loss to Emmaus in the PIAA Class AAA championship game. Now, Downingtown East will compete against Central Bucks South on Saturday in the school's first state-quarterfinal appearance, and McGinty is hopeful her team can make a run. She has been leading the squad since the program's head coach, Stephanie Bullock, gave birth to a girl shortly after the team's 3-1 loss to Unionville in the District 1 semifinals.

Waldron scored twice and No. 1 Collingswood overcame a monumental effort by Maple Shade goalie Dana Sheply to win, 3-2, at home. The defending champion Panthers will host No. 2 Gloucester for the title Saturday at a time to be determined.
